Q: Is it healthier to smoke hash with oregano or nettles than tobacco?

A: Well, smoking anything is bad for you. Tobacco is particularly bad for two reasons. First, virtually all commercial tobacco is loaded with chemical additives which are extremely toxic. Second, tobacco is powerfully addictive. Using something like nettles or oregano gets around both of these problems. One technique which may be helpful would be to use washed parsley. One technique used is to buy some dried parsley from the grocery store, and soak it overnight in a bowl full of water. Drain out all the water and let the parsley dry. The result is that the parsley smoke will have much less taste and harshness when smoked. Another choice would be to smoke the hash over marijuana. Of course, the best option is probably to reduce the total amount of particulate and burned material by just smoking the hash by itself, by using a hash pipe with a fine screen.
