Speaking of charging by credit card, a word of WARNING:
We take credit card fraud very seriously and will report any fraud attempts to
the authorities. For your protection and security, your IP address and the time
of day when you place an order with us is logged as well. As an extra precaution
we ask that you supply us with a non-mobile contact telephone number so we can
contact you to if needed. We would only contact you in the event we needed to
confirm your order or to obtain delivery details or to address other security
issues. We also require a CVV2 number from the back of your credit card which is an extra security measure to
stop people from using a credit card without authorization.
We value all our customers and make every reasonable attempt to make your
purchase with us secure and safe as we can. Any information you supply to us is
kept in the strictest of confidence and will not be divulged to any other
PLEASE NOTE: USING A PARENT'S CREDIT CARD IS A CRIME! WHEN YOU ARE CAUGHT WE
Parents, we have a very aggressive credit card fraud policy. If your child uses
your credit card to place an order with us, and supplies all of the required
information, we will assume – as any mail order company would – that he or she
is indeed the authorized cardholder and is of legal age to make a purchase.
Should you choose to contest the charges, we will have NO CHOICE - and MUST by
law, notify the appropriate authorities that a credit card fraud has been
committed. We urge you to please consider the implications for your child’s
future – credit card fraud is a FELONY, and will be prosecuted to the fullest
extent of the law.
Q: How long will it take to receive my order?
A: Due to the large volume of orders we handle per day, it takes us three
business days (Saturday, Sunday, and recognized National Holidays are NOT
business days) to process your order. Meaning your order will not even leave our
warehouse for at least three business days after we receive your payment. Some
of our competitors state they do same day shipping but we have not found that to
All orders are shipped via the United States
Postal Service (US Mail / Post Office), and are fully insured. This means you

delivery confirmation on all our packages. ALL PACKAGES ARE SHIPPED DISCREETLY.
Herbal-Smoke.Com does NOT appear anywhere on the package. ONLY YOU KNOW WHAT IS
INSIDE THE PACKAGE.
Q: Can I get my order sent Express Mail or Priority Mail?
A: Yes, we now offer U.S. Priority Mail options at additional cost. At check
out you will be asked if you want standard first class shipping or you will be

no longer offered by us except through our mail order department. Priority Mail
orders are processed immediately upon payment approval.

address on the bank records, your order will NOT be honored. We only ship to the
credit card holders billing address. Also, orders CANNOT be placed by third

P.O. BOX 86187
Phoenix, AZ 85027
Q: One last question about shipping. Do you ship C.O.D.?
A: Sorry... We do not ship C.O.D.
Q: There is an herbal website out there saying they are
the “Original” sellers of herbal smoke and claims everyone else is a copycat.
Are you a one of these so called "copy cat sites"?
A: It is sad when companies use tactics like this. It's unprofessional and reflects
poorly on the entire industry. It's like politicians who use “smear” campaigns
to make their opponents look unscrupulous.
The term ‘copycat’ is often used by business who are afraid of competition.
Would you consider “Pepsi” a copycat of “Coca-Cola”? Or Wendy’s; Burger King;
and Taco Bell copycats of the original fast food franchise – McDonald’ Of course
Many of the world’s largest companies came about not from copying other goods
and services – but by improving and offering new and exciting choices for
consumers. In our case, we hired the one of the world’s leading herbalists to
create 100% new, ORIGINAL, potent, and extremely effective herbal smoking
products. It’s our commitment to the herbal smoking community to constantly
innovate and bring new pleasures to our customers. Obviously, we’re not
interested in copying a bunch of the same old blends that so many others sell –
we're at the forefront in constantly offering you the very ‘best of the best’
herbal smoke, herbal smoking blends, legal herbal buds and marijuana
And – we do it all at extremely competitive prices – compare us with any of the
herbal smoking suppliers for yourself.
Q: One of your competitors states that their
herbal buds were voted “The World's Best 100% Legal Smokes” by a top smoking
magazine's readers – seven years in a row. What magazine is it, and how about
your herbal smoke and herbal buds?
A: Well, I don’t know what magazine my competitor is referring to – but
if that’s true, and it was me - I’d sure as hell tell everybody. I’d have
reprints of the article available for download; links to the magazine; and I’d
include a copy with every order. There’s no advertising anyone can buy – in any
business – that would have more impact than being rated “number one” in a
reader’s poll seven years running.
But still - as a consumer – I think I’d want to see a reprint of the actual
article, from the actual magazine. I might also ask myself why this wasn’t a
part of this vendor’s site a year ago – after all, six years at the top would be
very impressive. So would five. Or even four… I don’t now about you, but it kind
of makes me wonder…
Of course, at Herbal-Smoke.com, we never make any claims we can’t back up. Our
customers are our greatest critics – so check out our Customer Feedback page and
judge for yourself.
Q: There is a company on
the Internet claiming they “INVENTED” the term herbal smoke, is this true?
A: There is a website that sells herbal smoking products claiming to be “The Original”
and seems to be making the claim they “invented”
the term herbal smoke. The term herbal smoke has been used by various companies
selling herbal smoking products over the years – it's become a generic term,
like “Kleenex” is for tissue. What else could anyone possibly call them? They
are what they are.
You can do your own research as to who is being truthful and who is just trying to undermine their competition
with false or misleading accusations and statements by visiting www.WaybackMachine.org. Go there and type in your favorite website URL and see what their site looked
like, what products they used to sell, what names they used or didn’t use. The
WayBackMachine, is the largest internet archive website online and is very
Q: I have been ripped off before buying on the Internet
especially by another herbal website. How do I know you won't rip me off?
A: Well, the short answer is that we’ve been in business since July 1998. Obviously, we wouldn’t
still be in business if we simply took our customers’ moneyand didn’t deliver the goods. Of course, anyone could say
that, and some companies do. But there are many resources available on the Internet to you where you can check if a company is
legit or not and how their service is.
Q: I have seen several companies copying, even using similar
product names to yours, do you know about this?
A: Again check out www.WayBackMachine.org and it will become immediately apparent who is actually is copying who.
Q: What about some websites making claims they are the
biggest or most well known?
A: We are extremely fortunate that the majority of our
business comes from repeat customers. There are several websites that make
similar statements about how many repeat customers they acquire each month.
These are the same herbal sites that promote themselves everywhere and have
hundreds of websites with different names and URL's - all selling the same
product line or pointing back to the same “ORIGINAL” website.
Here at Herbal-Smoke.com, we do very
little advertising because our products speak for themselves. Other herbal
websites spend thousands of dollars a month on advertising and seem to be
everywhere you look. They are in every 420 related magazine and website you see.
That is just one reason our prices are more competitive. We don't need to
constantly spend thousands upon thousands of dollars searching for new
Granted we are obsessed with quality and quality speaks for itself. Plus we only sell herbs,
herbal smoke, herbal smoking blends and legal herbal buds. We aren't a head shop. We specialize in what we
sell because we know that your business and loyalty are what really matters. We
know that we must provide the best products; at the best possible price, to earn
your trust. And we also know that your satisfaction and support are essential to
our business - without you, there is no "us". Word-of-mouth advertising is said
to be the "best" kind of advertising a company can have and believe me we have
it. We know if you enjoy what we offer, we know you will tell your friends and
Q: I saw an Herbal website calling their competitors
products “crap in a bag” or garbage, are they taking about your products or your
A: Yes, there was a website that posted a statement on their
FAQ page calling their competitions products "crap in a bag" but it has since
been removed. The fact is there are only so many herbs that can be smoked in the
world. Most of smoking herbs sold today were discovered thousands of years ago
and have a long standing and very solid reputation as to their effects and
quality. It is doubtful any herbal smoke website is selling anything much
different than the next herbal site. One company’s herbs may be fresher than the
next or a higher more expensive grade and quality than another company, but
herbs are herbs there is nothing new or unknown out there.
The exception is with herbal smoking blends, they are for the most part unique
and blended specifically for a certain herbal seller and may very well be better
than someone else’s blends. The blends we sell for example are simply the “Best
of the Best” they are intoxicating utilizing the highest quality 100% natural
organic herbs in the world.
As for the questions were we the company they were talking about, we don't know
and don't really care. What we do know is this, we would never criticize our
competition by saying they sell “crap in a bag” or garbage or make
unsubstantiated statements to make them look bad. It just isn’t professional and
frankly it’s irresponsible and very immature. Our products, service and quality
speak for themselves. You’ll easy be able to judge the difference. We don’t have
to attempt to convince you otherwise before you even buy from us by speaking
poorly about our competition. Unlike some companies we welcome competition and
just won’t use this sort of deception and tactics to make you question another
company’s validity just because they are our rival. We don’t play that game, we
don’t need to.
Q: Is this stuff legal?
A: Yes. These products DO NOT contain any illegal substances.
Our products are 100% legal, natural herbs and botanicals all of the highest
quality and are TOBACCO FREE.
Q: Are your products legal in my country?
A: We have been shipping our products worldwide for years. We
ship to any country with an open border and other than some time delays in
shipments due to customs, we have never encountered a problem with our customers
not receiving their order. Please note we do NOT ship SALVIA incense or Salvia
incense extract outside USA.
Q: What are the long-term effects - Side effects?
A: Other than the typical issues with smoking, there are none
that we know of.
Q: Does this stuff make me feel high or do these products
A: Yes and no is the only honest way this question can be answered. Mainly because everyone is different and your
chemical makeup plays a major roll in obtaining the effects you desire and will feel. The effects of herbal smoke
and smoking blends will vary from person-to-person, period!
Herbal smoke and herbal smoking blends have
become very popular over the past 10 years, mainly due to increased access to
the Internet. Just because they are popular doesn't mean you can about these
products before you buy them. Remember herbal smoke and herbal smoking blends
are not marijuana, illegal drugs or tobacco. They are not intended to be "fake
drugs" however we can reassure you if they didn't deliver the goods so to speak
they wouldn't still be around for all these years. We feature only the Best of
the Best herbal smoking blends on the market. In fact most of these blends have
been on the market for 10 years or more. No manufacturer would continue to sell
a product if they didn't work Retail stores and their customers would buy it
once, find it unsuitable and wouldn't reorder the product. Eventually the
manufacturer would either stop offering it and or remove it from their product
line. The blends we offer are of extremely high quality; they are known for
their potency and are offered at prices unmatchable by other herbal smoke
Q: OK so I read all that, what is the best??
A: We get this one a lot, yet it is a very difficult question to answer. As we said before each person who smokes herbs and
herbal smoking blends does so for different reasons. Each person therefore each
person gets a different experience from smoking. For instance some people smoke
herbs to relax while others are looking for a stimulant. Others want it to enjoy
a euphoric feeling while others still are looking to either "mellow-out" after a
long day at work, or want something to "blow them away". Only the Best of
the Best are featured on our site so in essence all our blends are the best. We
believe that the smoker must make the ultimate judgment of the "perfect herbal
smoke or herbal blend". We feel one of our samplers is the best way to go.
Q: OK, I understand I have to decide which one is the best
smoke for me, but which one is most like "the real thing ???
A: We sell "herbal smoke and herbal smoking blends that are
alternatives to illegal substances and tobacco. We do not sell "fake drugs" or
"fake marijuana". Each smoking herb and herbal blend is different and has its
qualities. So again ONLY YOU can determine which blend is best for you and will
deliver what you’re looking for. All we can say is we sell only herbal smoke and
herbal smoking blends that are are among the most potent and "effective" on the
market. There are too many individual tastes for us to try to select the
perfect blend for you personally – that’s why we offer such a wide selection.
Please understand, there’s simply no way ANYONE can truthfully answer this
question for you.
Q: Can you describe what the effects are or give me a trip
report on your products? Which herbal smoke or smokes will give me a buzz, or
make me feel high or stoned?
A: Again our products are designed and sold as alternatives, not as fakes or replacements! Each product listed has a
description next to it based on reactions from our customer's or we provide a
historical / educational background on the product. As mentioned above,
there’s no way to honestly answer this type of question.
Q: Can herbal smoke and herbal smoking blends help someone quit smoking tobacco or marijuana?
A: Yes, they can and have for many of our customers. For tobacco smokers herbal smoking blends provide a great
alternative, the same goes for people who smoke marijuana. Bottom line is, yes,
herbal smoking blends can help.
Q: If I use any of the products that are sold on your
website, will they show up on a drug test?
A: N0-NO-NO... that's one of the many benefits of using any of the products we sell. They are 100% Natural herbs,
herbal smoke, herbal smoking blends or legal herbal buds. They do not have THC
or any other illegal substances in them. Think of it as nothing more than being
in possession of a bag of herbal tea. They simply are NOT tested for.
Q: What about privacy, do you
sell my name or give it out to anyone?
A: We will NEVER ever sell, or give anyone your information. Every bit of information we obtain from you will ONLY
be used to process your order and nothing more.
Q: Do You Offer A Money-Back Guarantee/Exchange
A: Because our blends are "CONSUMABLE" products, we’re
unable to offer an exchange or refund – for obvious reasons. As previously
stated, due to variations from one person to the next, we can't guarantee that
your experience will be identical to those of our other customers. That is
why we will normally recommend that you try a small order to start with to see
if our herbal smoke or herbal smoking blends are right for you.
Q: What if I still have a question that has not been
answered here or can not find on your site?
A: You can e-mail us at: email@example.com
