What you'll do

You will enter the space with light music playing, & the burning of either incense, frankincense & myrrh resin and/or sage to clean the space.

There will be a choice of herbs for your herbal smoking blends, each serving a specific function in the body.

We will briefly introduce ourselves & discuss what each person is interested in blending.

I will start the class teaching the benefits and function of each herb. We will then discuss smoking blend ratios. We can also discuss ratios for blending herbs with cigarettes or cannabis for those who are interested in cutting.

You will then pick a selection of herbs to make your blend.

As you craft, I will talk about the benefits and safety of vaporizing vs smoking, & combustion temperatures for the herbs we are using. (Vaporizing warms plant material enough to release its beneficial compounds without creating a harmful combustion).

In total, you will take home a smoking blend kit, 2 personally rolled herbal smoking blends, & a wealth of newfound information.

Smoking blends DO NOT include nicotine or cannabis. We are ONLY using plant material.
Please let me know if you have any allergies or any concerns.

I've spent over half my life learning the art of rolling cigarettes & making herbal smoking blends from West Indian herbalists. I currently work with a renowned herbalist making herbal smoking blends for beneficial health purposes.

I'm a Brooklyn-based performance artist and celebrity stylist. I own and operate an art space in a BedStuy loft that hosts an apothecary, in-house thrift shop, photo gallery, photo/video studio, & audio recording space.

We will learn how to make & roll herbal smoking blends in the apothecary. These are alternatives to cigarettes & cannibis, using plants.

A really DOPE experience! Hackquan has a great personality and explained the benefits and effects associated with each herb he presented thoroughly. This was a super insightful and unique experience that I recommend if you’re even slightly interested in learning more about smoking and/or holistic remedies!

This is truly an authentic experience that I recommend to anyone who’s even slightly interested in rolling & herbalism in modern times. Hackquan intellectually, patiently, and kindly guides you through the craft of rolling from his own experience and culture which you cannot get anywhere else. And I FINALLY feel confident in my rolling abilities as well having a newfound appreciation for herbalism I plan to bring back to California. Must visit at least once!

This was a GREAT experience! Hackquan was very, very knowledgeable! He took his time explaining the different herbs and their benefits! I definitely learned so much! The energy was awesome and the space was wonderful. Although we had to take precautions due to covid— it still felt comfortable and inviting. Definitely would recommend!

Such a dope experience today! Love how personal this was. Not your typical touristy experience if you want something more real. My boyfriend and I throughly enjoyed it. We’ll definitely do it again when we come back.
