Sun Coast Organics started as a small smoke shop on the beach in FL in 1999. We became very interested in the idea of offering blends of herbs that could be smoked as alternatives to smoking tobacco or marijuana ( which in FL at the time was not even legal for medicinal purposes ). So we started researching herbs and creating our own alternative blends. Chronic Flex being the first. It was our goal to create smooth enjoyable smoking alternatives using high quality herbs and it was not an easy thing to do. Many of the blends on the market at the time contained bark and root herbs ( very harsh ) and the herbs were not properly sifted and prepared for smoking purposes. After learning how to sift unwanted debris from the herbs, and finding a reasonable amount of different herbs and flowers that could be used for smoking purposes, our line of tobacco free alternative smoking blends slowly evolved. We are still having fun at it today and still working to improve all aspects of our herbal smoking alternatives.
