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.
The year has gone fast, and a new Christmas is coming. Every year I'm amazed of how detailed people are when they're picking their Christmas present and as a buyer I've often felt limited in my options for presents. The ideas and proposals of some shops are often repetitive and I'm personally a bit sick of buying every year few sets of scarfs and hats, or woolly tops or some silly gadget that will never be used by anyone.
Therefore this year at Natural Style Barcelona we've decided to start working on Christmas quite in advance, so in the last few months we've been stocking up with the most exciting herbs to help you dance the whole night, or to have a very "hot" Christmas "him & her" style.
From powders, infusions, extracts and tincture, we have built a wide selection of exciting and unique Christmas presents ideas.
Kratom for the ones who need a boost of energy and happiness, Blue Lotus and Damiana for the ones that are planning a romantic night at home, Kava for a relaxing break or Maca for a night of passion, and many other interesting natural products that you can only discover once in store...
Also to help the ones that struggle a bit to pick one thing or the other, we've created few Christmas present boxes, by putting together little selection of themed items to create collections that can suite different people and tastes.
For example we have a CBD box (containing 1 CBD E-liquid, 1 CBD oil, 1 CBD cream), or a smokers box (with 6 packs of juicy jay hemp wraps- one of each flavour, a collectionist clipper lighter with cork cover and weed leaf drawing a king size RAW rolling paper - Natural hemp, 2 cannabis Lollipops) or a Extract candy box (containing kratom extract powder, turmeric extract powder, and a candy of premium seedless CBD hemp buds).
The preparation and the effort put into building our herbs and extract collection has been a long journey, but it's very rewarding seeing how much appreciation our hard work is getting, so we are gonna keep working hard to improve our unique herbal remedies collection and to create new themed Christmas boxes, to make sure that each one of you this Christmas can have a unique, personalised and unexpected gift branded by Natural Style Barcelona.
