Botanical Potpourri Update 2/3/11

Botanical Potpourri remains big business in New Orleans and Louisiana. Once again, it’s sold by a variety of brands in a variety of stores, including convenience stores and head shops.  The local King remains the Mushroom on Broadway uptown.

They purchased property in Texas after Fake Pot 1.0 ended in August 2010, and once again have built up a huge nationwide network of dealers selling their stuff! They have hired more than one chemist to produce their line of products.

The Mushroom maintains a number of web sites selling their brands, including mushroomnola.com, www.abetterherb.com & www.Dascents.com. All are being updated as this post is being updated. Online, the Mushroom sells a variety of potpourris and offers far better prices than the brick and mortar  Mushroom itself on many.  As mentioned in other posts about the Mushroom, this stuff has increased the profit substantially for the Mushroom owner. Not only the local sales, but the internet and national sales are probably huge.

There was recently a fake bath salts scare around the New Orleans area.  A substance named Cloud 9 was  apparently smoked or snorted, leading to numerous trips to the hospital emergency room.

Governor Bobby Jindal issued an Emergency Order outlawing the sale or use of the substance, taking it out of the convenience stores throughout the state very quickly.

When this Cloud 9 ban was instituted, no mention was made concerning potpourri, and botanical potpourri  lives on big time in Louisiana.
