'LION'S TAIL' INFO
Known as 'Wild Dagga' -is smoked or made into a medicinal tea by the Hottentot tribe of South Africa. Because of its euphoric effects,' Wild Dagga' is often referred to as a Cannabis substitute. Leonotis leonurus ((Wild Dagga - Lion's Tail)) species is also used in Eastern medicine as a euphoriant. Euphoric 'marijuana-like' experience, suggested that persistent use of this substance can lead to habituation, same degree as in tobacco.
Can be used for menstrual and uterine conditions as well. It is valuable in the stimulation of delayed or suppressed menstruation, especially where there is anxiety or tension involved. It is a good relaxing tonic for aiding in menopausal changes. Eases false labor pains.
The resin from the leaves and petals is used. Dried leaves may also be smoked or chewed.( FYI- I don't condone the use of this for any reason other than medicinal purposes,)
