Its actually a mixture of grass clippings and LSD. The LSD just makes you think you’re getting high. Since it’s not marketed as LSD, its totally legal.
What? It’s true, I swear.
OK, the truth is that they are just mixtures of various herbs claimed over the years to have psychoactive properties, or mor to the point plants with cool names that sound kike they’d get you high i.e. Opium Lettuce, Wild Dagga (Dagga is a term in another language for Marijuanna), Hops (It’s in beer, so it must do something!!).
Truth be told most of the things in there have very little if any effect on your mental state, but I almost gaurentee they are the harshest things your lungs will ever come in contact with, and any effects that the individual plants may actually have is cut to near zero by the other ingredients.
There are a few in there that have some effect, although not necessarily the ones you want, especially if you’re looking to “mellow out” one Ive seen contains Yerba Mate- the stuff I drink in the morning because my caffiene addiction is too high to maintain with regular coffee, lotsa caffiene there. Damiana, another exceedingly common ingredient in that stuff might actually have an effect, but not a very strong one, and at the expense of your liver/kidneys. Its lso claimed to be an aphrodesiac. I personally use this in tea form occasionally in the same way youd use echinacea, its not so much an “immune booster” but it does seem to have an affect when Im ill, although I haven’t ruled out the Placebo effect on that one. As for why you’d smoke it, it does relax you, although hardly any more than Chamomille will, and as for it’s sexual properties, it does seem to highten the sense of touch, which, although I dont have a cite, I believe has been linked to increasing the bloodflow to nerves.
There are plenty of psychoactive substances out there that are as legal as air. Although most of them have a high chance of either killing you, or frying your brain into mush. I see this as the one example of the government allowing the herd to thin itself, but that’s just me.
