Best Nicotine Free Smoking Blends (UK)

Many people in the UK and across Europe mix cannabis with tobacco when they smoke. 

Clearly, this is not the healthiest way to do it. 

Smoking tobacco has been found to cause lots of health issues, not least lung cancer. 

Which is why many people are turning away from tobacco and trying out nicotine-free smoking blends. 

So, if you’re looking for something to substitute tobacco for in your joints, or to smoke on its own, look no further. 

This article will provide a rundown of the best nicotine-free smoking blends in the UK… 

Why do Brits smoke cannabis with tobacco?

While using tobacco alongside cannabis is widespread in Europe, the reasons why can be debated. 

Many proponents claim the uplifting effects of smoking nicotine complement the psychotropic effects of cannabis.

And there is one study that found adding tobacco to a cannabis joint “doesn’t improve the experience of being stoned, but it does reduce the memory impairment inherent to cannabis use.” 

Previous research also suggests that nicotine on its own can improve concentration. 

Perhaps the most likely reason we use tobacco is that hash used to be the most common form of cannabis in Europe. 

While high-grade flower is now easy to find, back in the day it was all hash – mostly imported from Morocco, the Middle East and India. 

And the easiest way to smoke hash is to crumble it with tobacco into a joint. 

I also think, these days, as weed can be pretty pricey, many will claim they use tobacco in their joints in an effort to make their weed last longer. 

Others claim joints taste better with tobacco, or that they’re smoother on the throat than pure weed joints.

Why should you stop smoking joints with tobacco?

While the harmful effects of tobacco are well-known, on its own, nicotine is actually one of the most reliable nootropics on earth – a nootropic is a substance that improves cognitive function, particularly executive functions, memory, creativity, or motivation. 

This is probably why tobacco has become one of human kind’s favourite drugs. 

However, modern day tobacco and cigarettes are loaded with harmful chemicals that wreak havoc on your health.

Nicotine is also highly addictive and can produce intense withdrawal effects once you are hooked. 

In fact, many weed-smokers confuse the addictive qualities of nicotine with cravings for cannabis. 

After giving up tobacco, many find that they smoke less cannabis overall as they were previously smoking joints for the nicotine rush rather than the effects of cannabis. 

Tobacco smoke has also been linked with lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and countless other conditions. 

Cannabis smoke, on the other hand, despite containing some known carcinogenic chemicals like carbon monoxide, is not linked to lung cancer or any irreversible lung damage. 

Which is why, if you smoke, it could be wise to avoid tobacco. 

And if it will help, why not try one of the following nicotine-free substitutes…
