Red Larkspur - A Native American Psychedelic

Red Larkspur is a psychedelic ( hallucinogenic ) plant that was and is still used by Native Americans. It's toxic, and potentially very dangerous. Never the less, I found it worthy of being added to this database. It's very rarely mentioned, and only a few people in the west even know about it. No one knows this plant like the Native Americans.

Rose hips have more than just ornamental value, they are also chalked full of beneficial chemicals, including typical vitamins. They have found their way in the hands of herbalist around the world, and are a favorite among many alternative practicioners. Rose hips have way more vitamin C in them than an orange. There are several other plants out there that surpass fruit when it comes to vitamin c too. Read more about Rose Hips here
