What’s all this about ‘getting high’?

Getting ‘high‘ simply means elevating our lives beyond the confines of ordinary, everyday consciousness. As with yoga and meditation practice, using plants in a skillful way can help us experience reality in extended states of bliss and ecstasy. To this end we offer herbs and education, to connect with a happier, more profound way of seeing and knowing ourselves and each other.  

“Ecstasy is an evolutionary stimulus that amps us up to higher orders of being. Most people have had some experience, however brief, of ecstasy. But there are ways of courting it and even learning to stay in these states for longer periods of time.” Jean Huston

More than just a shop?

Over the years Happy High Herbs Nimbin has become a thriving focal point for the planetary consciousness shift of our time. You can sense it as soon as you walk in through the door. We provide a meeting point for plant enthusiasts to exchange knowledge and experience. We are also a point-of-first contact from many people coming from the mainstream looking for solutions. We constantly endeavour to cultivate an extended repertoire of plant allies for ourselves and for our clients. 

Medicinal plants, used for balance, healing, endurance and enjoyment are an essential element in any healthy and sustainable society. Perhaps there has never been a more important time in human history to cultivate this knowledge. This way of life, ancient at it’s roots, yet cutting-edge in its application, may now hold the keys to the whole-system transition of our body and mind, soul and society. If we are going to meet the growing crisis of the twenty-first century and not only survive, but thrive, plants and plant technology may hold the key.

What some of our customers have said…

“I came to Nimbin, overweight, addicted to tobacco and alcohol, depressed and with nothing to look forward to in life. The kind woman I met at Happy High Herbs introduced me to some alternative herbs that I could smoke and use as teas. I went home and gave up alcohol, lost weight, gave up my job and started a whole new life. I’ve never been happier”

“The herbs I get from Happy High Herbs have helped cure my addiction to coffee. I am more productive and healthier now and have a much greater understanding about how many different plants there are to give me energy”
