Herbal Medicines are becoming more and more common place in todays society. They are used to treat numerous illnesses, diseases and are even used as a pain remedy.
They are often used in various methods, such as tea's, vaporization, combusting, edibles, liquid and pill forms.
The most common is combustion, such as smoking, vaporizing etc. This arises the next concern, how to store your herbal medicine. Many use small plastic, glass, metal and even wooden containers, such as cigar humidors.
There are pros and cons to each method:
-Pros: Inexpensive, air tight, lightweight durable
-Cons: Some plastics can alter the taste and flavor, other plastics may emit chemicals. Some containers were designed to contain products that and not intended to be injested by humans. If using plastic, use an approved container such as a Cigar Travel Case. You can find them here: http://www.cigarmanor.com/collections/case
