I remember when I was a teenager and every now and then, looking for a bit of "safe excitement" and natural party drugs, I was visiting with my friends the local Head Shop of my area. It was so amazing... It was like going into a alchemist laboratory! With so many gadgets, pills and herbs!
We used to love to try all them different things knowing that our health would have not been put at risk! Unfortunately through the years many of them shops started to go into the synthetic legal highs like the spice and similar rubbish and many of them have been closed as the new drugs were slowly made illegals.
I live in Barcelona now and this is a really cool city where the hippy community seems to be still vibrant, and in such a city I was expecting to find some old school head shop were to get that powerful feeling of nature again.
I was quite disappointed when googling "head shops Barcelona" i only got a list of grow shops with big shelves full of bongs, grinders and Rolling paper... One or two of them are selling few CBD products or cannabis candies, but no natural legal high whatsoever was on the list...
Many people is not even aware of how many herbs flowers and plants have nervine or psychoactive effects. Some can be stronger some can be milder and being psychoactive doesn't means that they make you incapable of thinking, some of them actually make your mind even sharper than what it would normally be.
Since working at Natural Style Barcelona I've learnt a lot about legal highs, natural herbal remedies, differences between infusions, resins, extracts, oils and tinctures. This new style of head shop, on top of having a good range of smoking gadgets, pipes and bongs, also have a unique cannabis clothing collection, which includes cannabis hats, socks with weed leaf design, cannabis Leggings and much more.
And, of course, it has the best selection of herbs and extracts in town, from aphrodisiacs like the Maca, to mood boosters as Damiana, strong energisers like Kratom and relaxing resins like the Blue Lotus, anti anxiety remedies as Kava and few different smoking blend options all made of 100% natural herbs. Natural Style Barcelona sources their herbs directly from the country of origin to guarantee the freshness of the product which is basic for the herb effectiveness when taken. And I believe that all these reasons make Natural Style Barcelona the only real Head Shop in Barcelona.
