Nature offers a banquet of unique and flavourful herbs. These beneficial plants are best enjoyed through vaporization—essentially a modern form of aromatherapy. Although cannabis produces its own enjoyable effects, there are so many other species that can be loaded into a vape chamber and enjoyed in a similar way.

Many herbs feature aromatic substances called terpenes, which underpin their distinct flavours, scents, and effects. Smoking often destroys these volatile compounds, but vaping can be gentle enough to keep them intact! Unlike smoking, vaping can release terpenes and other molecules without releasing carcinogens.

You can enjoy these herbs alone, but you’ll get the best results by combining those that work together. By carefully crafting a formula—using the correct ratios—you’ll be in for a pleasant and flavourful herbal experience.

Achieving The Right Ratio Of Dry Herbs


We’ve concocted our blends based on several factors. First, since the constituents within different herbs vaporize at varying temperatures, we’ve lumped together varieties that can be vaped at the same temperature to produce the best effects.

Second, we’ve made sure that each herb in the mix contributes to the experience in some way, from mere taste to how it affects the mind and body. Check out the general outline for each formula below. You can also use these guidelines to come up with your own blends.

  • Base: The linchpin of your creation. The base needs to be an herb with strong body, and it needs to vaporize well. The base will make up the largest quantity of the entire mix.
  • Modifier: Between 2–4 herbs to build upon the base. They should have a similar flavour and make up a good quantity of the blend. The modifiers should augment the effect of the base herb instead of fighting against it. For example, pairing a relaxing herb with a more energising one would be counterproductive.
  • Flavour: These herbs are added in the lowest quantity. Consider this addition to be your wildcard. You’ll want to use a small amount of a strong-smelling herb to add a striking sensory experience to your blend. However, use sparingly and mindfully. Adding too much can overpower your mix and throw it off balance.

Prepare your blend using base:modifier:flavour in a ratio of 3:2:1. Mix well before adding the blend to your vaporizer.

How To Make Your Own Herbal Vape Blend


Feel free to experiment when making your own personalised mix. Select herbs that appeal to you and follow the guidelines mentioned above to develop a successful formula.

To prepare your own mix, set out 3–4 large bowls. Divide your herbs into base, modifier, and flavour/twist. Prepare them by hand before adding to your vape chamber.

If we use the Tantric blend as an example, three handfuls of damiana, the base herb, would be added to bowl number one. Two handfuls (total) of orange blossom and jasmine blossom would be mixed in your second bowl together, then added to bowl number one with your damiana.

Finally, between 1–1½ handfuls of peppermint leaf can be added. The exact amount is down to personal taste and how strong you want the peppermint flavour to be. Combine, mixing thoroughly before adding to your vaporizer. Enjoy!
