Tried some in tea leaf form and found that they will capsulize in the stores. Love the capsules - had helped with anxiety, depression, PTSD - am now carefully being weaned off pharmaceuticals after feeling so great and positive and energetic. My therapist told me whatever you are doing and taking, keep it up! Fantastic - and I had to call the local store to tell the gals/guys there thank you sooo much for their recommendations. I was in northern Arizona and a Native American was in the Flagstaff store and told me, in addition to the guy working in the store, the benefits he had seen, and again he was able to go off of some meds he was taking for depression, anxiety, and meds he had become dependent on. I told my therapist that I was starting to feel like I had "the old me" back once again, zest for life,etc. Wouldn't really have believed it possible with an herb with my old thinking!

"I first came across the Happy Herb Company in 2009 when my partner and I were seeking smoking alternatives to help us quit tobacco.
With the guidance & support of the happy herb fremantle's friendly staff we trialled damiana, lions tale and blue lotus as a smoking alternative.
This mix, when smoked on occasions when the temptation was to go & have a cigarette, was a godsend.
I was able to fight each addiction, one at a time, first the nicotine, then the hand-to-mouth, then the triggers etc until finally I am no longer a smoker & feel so proud of what I have achieved.
The last 4 years have been the happiest & healthiest I have ever been & everywhere I go I take a pocket full of damiana but now more often than not, this is for tea rather than smoking."

"I am 20yrs old and was put on Fluoxetine when I was about 13... I started on a normal dosage of 20mg a day, and increased my dosage over the years to 50mg a day, I had my medications changed around, and nothing helped... I suffer from Chronic depression/anxiety/paranoia/stress... every day is a struggle... This is a little bit of info on myself so you can get the general idea of what has changed.... While on the Fluoxetine my mood swings had decreased but I was still heavily depressed... A while ago I went into the store as I was looking for something to boost my seretonin, I talked with a lady in there(can not remember her name) and she said she was taking Velvet bean/Mucuna to work her way off of her anti-depressants... I started taking this and stopped taking my medication, It was amazing the amount of difference it made, Not only did my mood swings become less intense, My anxiety also went down, and I was happier. On the medication I was always very level, almost zombie like, with this Velvet bean I have never been better, It doesnt cure all, I am still depressed occasionally and my anxiety/paranoia gets the best of me some times, but I am happier now then I have ever been, I have read a little about it and it is amazing the values of putting this stuff into your body can do... I thank you guys alot, I hope more people try this and get the same result... One very happy customer."

I am so impressed with this amazing herbal tincture produced by Malaika Honey. I have been using this product for the past 5 years for many bacterial infections like sore throat, bronchitis, flu skin infections. I take it orally for sore throats & flu symptoms. I can apply it directly to my skin for any rash or fungal infections. When traveling overseas I take it with me in case I pick up any infections. It is a must to have with me at all times. I know it has saved me 100's of dollars from expensive prescription drugs and Doctor's visits. I love it!

Gotu Kola is one of my favourite herbs as for my condition with epilepsy, it has a profound effect. I was driving the other day and needed to pull over somewhere as I was feeling a bit light headed. I had no idea where I was going to pull over and then saw a bit of grass, pulled over, got out of the car for a breather and there was a patch of gotu kola just next to the car. I picked about 10 leaves, chewed it and felt immediately better. The nervous system seemed to have been cradled and was on my way to work without another issue and it especially relieved any anxiety I get around having this condition in the first place

To all you people out there wondering does any of this stuff work MY BLOODY OATH it works,Im one of the most uptight people suffer anxiety, mood swings for years,Well for the last week or so i have
brought products from Happy Herb in Rockhampton and i cannot believe the change in me...I dont even need Valium any more,My Husband thinks im a new woman and even drove me over their today
to get my supplies lol..Manda and Nathan are just the nicest people you will ever meet..So get your ass down to the shop and try..I can promise you wont be disappointed ... Im that Happy with the
products i no longer need prescribed medications which i was taken for over 15yrs ...

Hi there, I just purchased some Damiana Tea, and I love it! I’m actually coming into the shop today to buy some for work colleagues. I think I have really started something here! There is one guy who has always found it really hard to wind down and relax, but now he just cruises around happy as Larry. He took some home for his wife, who suffers from menopause, and it has chilled her right out too. Brilliant stuff!


I've been using the SereniTea you sent as part of your Facebook giveaway - thank you so much! I've been quite stressed lately and SereniTea brings me back down :)

"I met a lovely customer this morning who had a wonderful testimonial about using mulungu.. She could not sleep due to pain related to illness and was on a daily dose of morphine..

This testimonial was received at one of our US shops (where kratom is legal, unlike in Australia)

Kratom type used: Malaysian

Gender: Male

Age: 25

Reason for using Kratom: Anxiety

Please describe your experiences/the result including duration of effects: You may have saved my life. It lasts about 6-8 hours, typically. My anxiety dissipated, THANK YOU. 

Please describe any negative side-effects or after-effects: Non-existent. Just don't like it when I can't afford to keep it in stock. 

I just wanted to say that I visited your store on Jetty Road, Glenelg and was served by a young man with dreadlocks. He was extremely helpful and provided me with the best customer service I have ever recieved anywhere in my life. I will definately be returning to the store not just for the products but for the exceptional service too! Thank you! TJM

Blue Lily Tea, quite weak, steeped for a little bit. I had one mouthful.. Or even half mouthful. Was planning have more, but sitting there painting forgot to. 10/15 mins later it hit me. Mellow but also full on. Very heightened senses ‐ sounds, colors, especially touch. Slightly out of body at the same time. Dizzy, third eye pressure, soft weakness like limbs were a little heavier. Visions also (which i've put in the painting) i didn't expect it to be so powerful from one sip. I had lots of dreams that night as this was just before bed. My partner drank the rest of the tea ‐ the whole cup. He didn't get much of anything while awake as i did, but deep sleep and lots of dreams. Thanks

Deborah used Mucuna from our West End shop to help rejuvenate her nervous system.

Kiall in Maleny used our Pow Wow tobacco alternative to quit smoking:


I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for changing my life! Words cannot express how grateful & lucky I am for stumbling into your store in San Diego - Ocean beach. Keep doing what you're doing. I too, am now spreading the word. May God continue to bless The Happy Herb Company & it's staff.   With love & gratitude,   Jes (Tempe, Az)


I am a devout Christian and hippy, god wanted us to turn to nature, as humans we have done far too much pharmaceuticals were not something the bible advocates it advocates to heal through nature. I am chronically ill and blame a lot of my ill health on the medical profession. A huge thank you and blessings to such a special person as Ray for bringing natural healing agents to us legally. I have had most of my bowel robed at a young age so never understood the meaning of body stone which is what you really need with chronic pain. I want to be law abiding but want to use herbs only, than you Ray for Kiwi Green it's brilliant as a mood lifter and for pain relief we are blessed people like Ray exist.




From a 27 degree Oxford St day:   Man walks in all buzzing on the day and on life and says to me:   "Yo sister! Check this day out. It's epic Man!! You got any of that QuiTPot Stuff. It's awesome. My wife and I we used to be 1/2 ounce a week types until this stuff came along. That guy who works here, with the stubble 'n shit (That's Lee), he told me to have a bit of a puff before i go to work to take the sting out of the day... so i've been doing that and the cool thing is it gives you a bit of a buzz but after a half hour walk to work i'm not craving the stuff and i'm all clear and ready to go. This shit rocks. I'm getting some for my bro too."   - Alex Oxford St Happy Herb Shop

Last january, a woman who had chronic leukemia and was undergoing treatment for several years, with chemotherapy etc., had just been told by her doctor that she had to stop the inefective treatment, that there was nothing else to do for her, and that she had to warn her family that it was the nearly the end for her ... SHe went back to France to see her daughter and her familly...

Her daughter had just got married, and not being present at the wedding, the lady decided to offer the honeymoon in Turkey to the new couple. The week after, her daughter called her right back from there, because she had just read in an english health magazine, she had opened by chance in the small hotel where she was staying, that a Canadian, Caroline Hamm had done a thesis on the dandelion killer cancer, and that she absolutely had to contact her.
She tried but no chance on the matter. SHe went on internet to read about the thesis, and instead of trying to contact her, she began to look for Dandelion in all France (she said) by sending letters everywhere... No chance too.. nothing !! (example of beautiful and effective work of the French medical community to make people forget the common European plants and their virtues ...)
When she came back in New Caledonia, she tried and asked to pharmacies, but no chance... not even an advice...
Finally, a friend of her sent her right to us, telling her that she would find this at our place for sure !! She did not believe it, and she found a whole kilo of dandelion root, just arrived, and available for her of course !!!!
This was a good seller since the beginning, having really good returns from men and women, and even teenagers... not for leukemia though, but mainly for liver problems, acne, and its detoxifying properties!!! This root was one of the stars after the invincible damiana of course !
Since then, with no other treatment at all, she began to drink dandelion decoctions everyday... She came back to see me last month to buy a new kilo, and to ask me if I could continue ordering this root for her because, after new analysis, the doctor didn't beleive the results !! The analysis indicated a remission...
SHe was crying in the shop and thanked me for being the ONLY ONE to sell this in FRANCE !!!! It was a "little" too much for me, but I understood her enthusiasm, and answered her that of course I would order dandelion for her, at any time ! But I also told her that we wouldn't have this root here if HAPPY HIGH HERBS did not exist, and that she should come and visit your website and why not your shops in Australia !!
You are saving lives everyday ...

As a mum of a 19 yr old, and with an insight into drugs from intelligent experience from my own youth, I feel that the product which is popular that Happy Herbs provides gives this generation a much safer and monitored approach to a pastime that they will do anyway. I wish you well with your fight. Thank you for supporting a cleaner way to relieve stress, make people happy, and create a quirky business.

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to send some major props to the guys who work at your Maroochydore store. I've been to this shop twice in a week. The herbs I've bought have been nothing short of a miracle. I suffer from major depression, chronic sleep insomnia, mild bipolar, lethargy etc etc all made worse by a increasing addiction to marijuana. Frankly I could go on for a while here :)

The herbs I've bought have been AMAZING. Literally, amazing. And the results happened so quickly! I went to the store today again. I called him Jason but I think that's his brother's name, and was actually served by David? Forgive me if it's incorrect. The knowledge, passion and genuine interest this guy has for all things herbal is a credit to him. He is an absolute star. No question is too much for him to answer. His information & knowledge on the products he sells is incredible. He even kept talking to us half an hour after the store had officially closed. The mixture of herbs he's so far sold me has dramatically improved my general wellbeing, my sleep patterns and I haven't smoked pot in 4 days. Numerous people have commented on it. My mood is beginning to become more regular and I've slept better in the last week than I have in 15 years.

So to David - I so hope that is his name - thank you thank you thank you. The guy deserves more money for being so good at what he does! I'm so excited about this new found love of herbs and the benefits they've given me and it's all thanks to him. Please pass this on to him. I'll be back in store next week :)

Regards, Emma

I am a single mother who has had battles with with all variety of substances mainly due to apparent health and possible mental issues but i have overcome many of them due to natural therapies... I dont know if i will ever be completely well but i cope because i have alternative things i can use... Your happy highs book started a spiral of information that i found actually helped and assisted me in removing a lot of pharmacuticals information from my life in turn helping me feel better just because it meant i didnt require a hand full of tablets for breakfast lunch and dinner...

Happy High Herbs has helped me with a number of conditions: firstly, having a dead brain from over indulging in psychedeclics, use of herbs like ginko, brahmi, ashwandaga, which helped me recover my brain. Also, I have had severe chest problems from smoking too much, using herbs like coltsfoot and mullein to clear the crap that has been lodged in my lungs.

Thanks for providing an option for me when pharmacies and doctors couldnt help.

I visited a US location, just out of curiosity...and it changed my life! I had been smoking cigarettes for almost a decade, and had tried to quit numerous times over the course of those years with no success. We were just chatting with the young woman at the counter when she started telling me of her husband's success quitting smoking using the mix you guys offer. I bought one of the bags and have not looked back since! My issues the first few times around mainly had to do with feeling sick from quitting, and just the addiction to hand to mouth movement.  With the herbal alternative, I felt significantly less sick in those first few weeks, and was still able to satisfy that hand to mouth addiction. The excruciating headaches I had experienced previously in trying to quit, were barely noticeable. I mixed the herbs with less and less tobacco until I didn't even have the desire to smoke them anymore. I still keep some around in case I have a craving, but I can honestly say I almost never do. (Which was a big problem I experienced with other methods of quitting; since your mix is not just another form of nicotine, I was actually able to kick my addiction, rather than just kick the smoking.)  I have told everyone I know that smokes cigarettes about this, and even bought a friend the same mix that I used. I can say with conviction that I would never have been able to quit without your help HHH! You saved my life!

Thankfully and sincerely,       - Sarah Lewis

I have had asthma my entire life and have recently been seeking alternatives to eastern medicine. I happened to be strolling down the street in Tempe AZ and stumbled upon a happy high herb store. The young lady was extremely helpful and lead me towards nevada tea and calamus root. I have been drinking a cup of nevada tea a day along with chewing the calamus as needed. I have noticed a tremendous difference with my breathing. Thanks ya'all....

- Robert Adler

You guys are everywhere! I was shocked when I saw one in Darwin. Every town needs a Happy High, I say. Some of my most enlightening experiences have come from your shop :-) Thanks for existing!

- Sandra Tot (facebook)

The feeling of release at knowing that someone else has experienced great benefit by using this herb,  made me laugh until I cried.

So good to know there are other 'believers' out there!
