Summary


                It's also commonly referred to as "Lions Tail". This species grows throughout regions of Africa where it's believed to originate. The flowers are a unique shade of orange, symbolizing its stimulating, up-lifting qualities. The plant has a history of use as both a medicine and a traditional intoxicant. This makes it a major cash crop for the people of Africa.


A tribe known as the "Hottentot" of South Africa uses Wild Dagga in the form of a tea, or hashish like smoke. There are actually two strains that they use, one is Leonotis leonurus, and the other is Leonotis nepetaefolia. It's widely debated which one is better. Certain phytochemicals in the flower demonstrate anti-histamine properties according to phytochemical research. It's not to be confused with "designer drugs" or "legal highs". It's all natural, un-laced with drugs, and well known in ancient medicine and in Shamanistic cultures. The orange blossoms are the most prized part of the plant.


Colors In Nature


                I've always had a thing for colors. One day I finally decided to research them and their psychological effects on human beings. I found some great books with scholarly sources. (See "Color Psychology".) So, I did some research and discovered that yes colors do have psychological effects. In other words, colors communicate information. What does this have to do with Wild Dagga? Well, it seems that the properties a plant posesses has a correlation with the color of the flowers. Ancient alchemist knew this too.


Tribal Use


It was used as a tool by the Hottentot Tribe of South Africa. The Hottentot knew of Lion's Tail's health benefits and its third eye stimulating properties. Wild Dagga is just one of many entheogenic and medicinal plants that were used by such tribes. They were known to combine certain plants to synergize their effects. Truly, they perfected the first origianl 'herbal blends', made without the use of research chemicals added. Note: Products on this website are not to be confused with designer drugs.


Medicinal Value


Wild Dagga was used in Eastern medicine as euphoriant, purgative, and vermifuge. Other medicinal applications include the treatment of: fevers, headaches, dysentery, flu, chest infections, epilepsy, constipation, delayed menstruation, intestinal worms, spider bites, scorpion stings, hypertension and snakebites. Externally, it has been used for hemorrhoids(yowzers!), eczema, skin rashes and boils.


Concentrating The Potency


Psychoactive Use: From my experiences with this ethnobotnaical, I'm confident that it requires a potent tincture, extract, or even the capturing of essential oils to truly experience the mind manifesting properties. Using fresh organic matter always yields a more potent elixir.


Sun Tea


Making a Lion's Tail Sun Tea is the perfect way to separate the essential oils from the fresh flowers. You'll need a tincture dropper to capture it. This is the cheapest and most simple method for capturing oils. If you try to make a tea out of certain botanicals, then often times the most prized phytochemicals just evaporate, leaving you with an in-active liquid remaining.


There are phytochemicals which are soluble in water, and others that are not. So we have the option of capturing plant oils using the method mentioned above ( or steam distillation ), or we can utilize high proof alcohol such as everclear to extract everything from the organic plant matter.


Water - Sun - Use Them


Take your stash and add it to a glass mason jar, filling about half of the jar. Add fluoride free water to the jar, enough to cover twice the ammount of dried material in the jar. Let this sit in a window seal for about 4-6 weeks. This method works far better with fresh material vs. dried. Unfortunately, unless you grow your own, you can only obtain dried material through the mail. The oils will float to the top of the mixture after the time period is up, assuming the mixture has not been disturbed(shaken). What's left below the oil still has value so don't discard it. These oils, teas, and tinctures(spirits) all have unique properties. This is the beauty of alternative medicine.


Constituents


The main psychoactive component of Leonotis leonurus is leonurine.


Cultivation


It's often grown as an ornamental because of its awesome orange blossoms. The Lion's tail species is moderately drought tolerant. If you are looking to attract birds and butterflies, it works great. It grows well in subtropical and Mediterranean regions. South Africa, California, Hawaii, and Australia are prime examples of where it grows well. When cultivating , always consider the simple fact that it's a-live! Plants can feel your good or bad vibes and they know if you are thinking or feeling something bad towards them. Love your plants, think about them, and treat them as you would your own children.
