Jester, you are so very welcome!* You said,
"For the herbs I am going with equal parts Perlite, Vermiculite, and Peatmoss with 10% worm castings and some thrive alive organic b1 additive. Later I'll probably move on to using some bat guano and increasing the amount of worm castings"
Do be careful with too rich a soil mix and too many additives, even organic.* Herbs taste best in a leaner soil, so go lightly with amendments and fertilizers.
When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant.
