Blaze It Up is a smoking blend to redefine all smoking blends, offering a unique flavor, incredibly smooth smoke, and seriously appreciable effects that’ll keep you rolling for a good hour. If you consider yourself an enjoyer of herbal smokes, Blaze It Up can’t be missed.
Blaze It Up is the first 100% natural herbal smoking blend from Lazy Botanicals. If you haven’t heard of this manufacturer, they specialize in making all natural herbal supplements, and Blaze It Up is their first foray into the world of smokeables. Having had the luck of sampling some of their other products, I suspected I might be in for a bit of a treat with this blend. I received my sample of Blaze It Up from Lazy Botanicals.
Three grams of smoke mix are packed into a high-quality and very sturdy mylar packet with a zip lock seal along the top. Having easily ripped off the top of the packet, I peeled the packet open and took a whiff. Blaze It Up has a very unique scent, as I smelled it I picked up hints of lavender, lemon, and pine among an overall earthy scent. It’s really quite pleasant smelling. I flipped the packet over to find that the ingredients are clearly listed on the back: Lobelia inflata, Sceletium tortuosum, Passiflora incarnata, Lavendula angustifolia, Mucuna pruriens, Hordenum vulgare, and Cacao. I’m not entirely sure where in this mix the citrus and the pine-like aromas are coming from, certainly one of these herbs, but the lavender is wonderfully noticeable.
Visually the entire blend is dark green to brown in color, the similarity coming from the extract(s) which heavily coat all of the herbs within the blend. Under the light of a lamp, the herbs shimmer and shine with the extract, and I found myself more than a bit excited to pack a pipe with Blaze It Up. Interestingly enough, I could also make a cup of tea with this mix and the back of the packet includes instructions for making a tea from Blaze It Up, in addition to the instructions for smoking it.
The herbs seem very fresh to me, they’re mostly soft and sticky with extract. Although some bits are slightly larger than others, there’s no need to break any of it down, and I put a decent pinch into my pipe and use a regular lighter to draw forth my first puff. I’m taken aback at first – not even sure what to think. The flavor is…different from anything I’ve ever smoked before. First off, it’s completely and utterly smooth regardless of any “stems” that are in the mix, not a single speck of harshness can be noticed.
That flavor though! It hit my tongue and exploded like a hundred confused fireworks firing off in different directions. It’s bitter and like nothing I’ve ever tasted, it’s almost metallic in a way and yet not. I feel like I can almost put my finger on what it’s like but…I just can’t. It’s out of this world, but love or hate the flavor (personally I’m torn), it fades fast. It doesn’t even linger on the tongue or lips beyond thirty seconds, if that.
I have to reiterate how completely smooth Blaze It Up is because I’m shocked. Honestly I didn’t think this level of smoothness was even possible in the herbal smoke world. With Blaze It Up though, the bar just got raised and I’m so thoroughly impressed. This smoothness gets shadowed by the actual effects because soon I was forgetting about the wonderful smoothness. As the effects of Blaze It Up began to brew before I even finished my pipe, just a few puffs in, I could feel this wave of relaxation settling over my entire body.
My mind felt open, my mood wasn’t necessarily lifted but I was in a good mood to begin with, but my thoughts were freer in nature, more creative and enjoyable. The effects are mentally elevating, and they’re strong, undeniably there. I was alone, but with a group Blaze It Up would be fantastic, it would be a great social smoke for sure. The whimsical sensations that occurred with this blend were more than a mere placebo effect, and it easily lasted for a good hour making for a lengthy duration.
The taste of this blend was a little odd, that’s for sure, but with such smoothness and potent effects I have to say the temporary moment of strange flavor seems more like something I dreamt about, within a few minutes it was that far past in my mind and I was moving on. Everything about Blaze It Up has been wonderful, and I’m a little floored. I’ve reviewed other blends which I thought were amazing, top of the line quality – but Blaze It Up hands down tops those. This blend will definitely be going on ourBest Legal Smoke page.
After this experience, I have to reset my expectations for future herbal blends because Blaze It Up has shattered my preconceptions of what’s possible. It’s clear the extracts used were incredibly important in achieving the effects without sacrificing the enjoyment of a smooth herbal smoke, and I can’t seem to repeat it enough because I’m just overall impressed. When someone tries to claim that all natural herbal blends have little to no actual effect, this is the blend I’m going to point them to until another one surpasses it. Blaze It Up is top notch, high quality, and exactly what you’re looking for. If you like herbal smoking blends at all, this is one you absolutely must take a moment to try.
