    I had heard of people throwing mint leaves into a hookah, so I thought of buying some dried mint leaves and throwing them into a joint, a lot of my friends thought I was a fuckin idiot but all those friends changed their minds later on after they smoked them.

    A friend of mine who smokes menthol ciggs said it was similar, but not as cool a smoke. But everyone agreed the joint was much less harsh, had a nice mint after taste, and miraculously, it burned slower then with just bud.

    It had about 3/4 a gram of bud and the joint itself was 85% bud, and 15% mint. From now on, I am gonna always throw some mint into my joints.

    Health Info
    "Interestingly, intake of menthol is pretty safe. Animal studies indicate that high doses of menthol distributed over a long period of time do not cause observable organ toxicities. Even when burned, menthol doesn't produce carcinogens. Menthol ingestion from cigarettes is carried to the liver, where it is broken down into harmless chemicals that are then excreted from the body."

    Anyone questions, comments?

    Oh yeah bud does taste nice alone, but the mint is just amazing, it's such a nice little touch to the joint, and it slows the burn too =) I definitely recommend giving it a shot.

    looks cool. now all i need is 100% dried mint leaves.

    15% sounds a bit much though just for the taste. ill start out with 5% then 10%. and repost how it worked.

    Yeah dude, it's definitely enjoyable, experiment with it, lemme know what you think.

    We're picking up an O tomorrow probably so we'll do plenty of experimenting with it, especially because everyone already tried it and likes it.

    Thanks man, you've given me something to steal from walmart. I like smoking mixes and can't wait to try this.

    If you liked this as an alternate you may like adding a bit of cloves to the mix. They have an intriguing spicy taste. Ever heard of kreteks? Djarum cigarettes? They have clove in them and I enjoy the taste, if you've never had em you may wanna try em.

    eh... i'm still on the fence.
    if i can find some, i'll give er a lil try.
  10. I've known from experience that putting a joint in a pack of menthol cigs will give the joint a menthol flavor... even if it was in there for like an hour or two... i've only found this out from carrying joints in cig packs... want doing it on purpose.. i actually hated when it happened
  11. i find this hard to believe.. any sort of smoke is gonna be somewhat carcinogenic

    haha what great coincedence. My flatmate has just dried some mint. No additives, no preservatives, no flavourings, just pure natural mint.
    I'm so putting some in next time I smoke up. See what it's like.

    yeah man ive actually done this. Infact, i've smoked some plain mint joints and it's cooling sensation on your whole body is really great. This gives me an idea though- people complain about the harshness of salvia- maybe mix some mint in with that so it's easier to hold?
