    So,i went to the Bulk barn here in the city and i bought a few grams or so of peppermint. Already ground up and stuff. Im not exactlly sure how much,but i got a decent amount for 40 cents!
    Now,my question is. Has anyone else tried peppermint in there vaporizer? If so,how did it work out and what did you think of it. Ive done some research and ive looked around on here for quite some time. I figured its time to give it a shot

    don't know about peppermint, but spearmint can get harsh on the throat.

    don't do coffee, but green tea is great.

    roasemary isn't too bad either.

    next up is gonna be fennel.

    I've heard of people putting clementine peels or tangerine peels in there as a kind of zest. might try that

    Hops are delicious. Low temps only, aromatic hop varieties, usually those with lower AA%, are the best. Whole are better than pellet.

    Yes, hops are very nice, absolutely delicious, I never brew a batch of beer without vaping some hops at some point during the boil. Ground licorice root is super tasty too, very sweet, and good for adding some flavor to bland tasting herbs.

    peppermint is nice, so is chamomile. Lavender tastes flowery (lol-duh)

    lemon balm would work, hibiscus might be nice. lemon peels fragrance the room quite nicely, but i haven't actually inhaled them.

    i've wanted to try kava, but not for the taste.

    I seem to recall a loooooong thread on this subject some time ago, maybe a year or so back. If you're really curious a little forum searching might bring up some recommendations.

    I've had success vaping a mulungu extract purchased online. Mulungu comes from south america and is related to catatuba. The main compounds in mulungu have nice sedative euphoric affects when vaporized. A tea can also be made, but much less material is required with vaping. The extract i had was a nice sparkly 90+ percent pure alkaloid extract from a trusted vendor. I've yet to vape the raw bark i have from another good vendor, but mabey my interest to do so will be sparked some time.

    I use it very effectively to treat my insomnia, and the cool thing is that it makes your dreams better/more vivid. Compared to cannabis, which fogs/prevents me from having dreams. Another good thing about mulungu is that the tea is a liver tonifier, meaning its good for your liver, compared to many gaba agonists that have similar affects to mulungu.

    ^ this sounds great, could you email me your source?

    On to my question, I have some eucalpytus essential oil that I use in the aromatherapy cup of my AZ. Would it be a good idea to put a few drops on top of a load in my LB?

    Woah Rico that sounds absolutely bomb! I was looking at various aromatherapy oils that are supposed to help with sleep, but after reading this I might have to try the mulungu route. Thanks dude.

    The mulungu from kt botanicals has been the best i've come across. Their extracts are very nice for vaping, especially the 90%. I bought my whole mulungu from raintree.com. Kt you can't go wrong with, they are a widely respected company that has raving fans from many different forums across the net.

    The fact that it helps with insomnia (what i have mmj for) but doesn't cloud your dreams has me intrigued,

    what vaporizer are you using for mulungu?

    Is there a specific type of vaporizer that works best with these other herbs?

    Taste would definitely be a more important factor, so short air path, but you'd also probably want mostly convection heating no?

    I feel like it might stink up my supreme & i wouldnt mind if it did my iolite but not sure how well that would do them anyway

    I have no experience with the Supreme i don't know if its bowl can be removed and cleaned.. I use the herbs i listed successfully with DBV,MFLB,Vapo-bowl,Magick Wand, and LSV.. No odor issues at all :) .. I do a quick water wash after every session no matter of the vaped substance.. I noticed that doing that removes the smell and keep everything clean.
    Anyway my vapo-bowl is metal and i have no odor issues.. I guess supreme will be just fine just don't overburn the herbs :) . Also forgot to mention that i've use damiana,lotus,wild dagga in my UD (log vape) .

    I use a separate stem for my mulungu, it tends to melt and dirty up the screen. I would not recommend vaping the 90% mulungu in a launch box, it could cause a mess or ruin your box's screen. A log vape stem works perfect, as you can by extras for different vaporizables and is easily fully cleanable.

    Is there a trusthworthy list to be found online with different herbs and their vaping temp? I have googled this few times but always am unsure as to how trusthworthy the given information is.
