Selling Potted Organic Wild Dagga Plants In '22!

There's a certain amount of mystery behind this plant. I spectulate that the name "Wild Dagga" may have been started due to a marketing ploy. It turns out the name "Dagga" is used as a slang for Weed(Marijuana) in certain parts of Africa. I saw on a vice Documentary someone refer to weed as "Dagga". I remember when this plant first exploded in popularity in the US, it was sold under this name Wild Dagga. Perhaps it was meant to lure in people, as a hint that it was Cannabis-like, which seems a deception seeing as how these "spice" and "k2" products were being laced with fake God-hater type synthetic cannabinoids. I wonder if they were deliberately decieving people into thinking the plant itself was causing effects when maybe they were just lacing it with JWH and claiming it had cannabis-like effects. It is a fact that it has been used in some fashion in Africa though. On purpose or not, back then the ingredients were not mentioned, only a list of herbs. They always failed to tell people that it had serpent medical chemicals in it.


         It's also commonly referred to as "Lions Tail", or Mullu Thummi plant. This species grows throughout regions of Africa where it's believed to originate. It's the cultures there that have made it known to the world, but the Ancient Of Days that created it. 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 enjoyable treat one could say, by the traditional cultures there. It was rumored, or exaderated rather, to have inebriating effects comparable to Cannabis, although from personal experience I have yet to notice any. I believe the effects could be more compared to something no more potent than Tobacco or Coffee. It was probably being used as a carier for K2 back then. Law makers haven't attacked it yet, leading me to conclude it's either not true, or the stuff being sold around this country is counterfeit. Nevertheless, it's a major cash crop for the people of Africa. The potency of the plant material from different suppliers varies, as does its legitimacy. I just gave up on it, but decided to try to grow some in 2021, and will have some plants for sale in 2022!(check herbalism.shop).


A tribe known as the "Hottentot" of South Africa uses Wild Dagga in the form of a tea, or hashish like smoke. Scientifically, certain phytochemicals in the flower demonstrate anti-histamine properties according to phytochemical research, among other things. 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(see Deuteronomy 18:10-14). The orange blossoms are the most prized part of the plant. The nomadic KhoiSan tribe of Africa consumed it socially(recreationally), and ceremonially and as a medicine for lots of ailments. During ceremony they should chew or smoke the leaves along with shamanic practices such as drumming and dancing to induce a trance-like, hypnotic state, which they believd would bring them in touch with the "spirit realm".(see Deuteronomy 18:10-14) The roots were also boiled for this use. Alternatively an herbal tea made from the leaves and flowers is used by herbalist for upper respiratory infection, fever, headache, high blood pressure, hepatitis, muscle cramps and liver stagnation, although I make no claims personally. This is just what the science and cultural lore says. See phytochemistry

Wild Leonorus Plant

Wild Dagga was used in Eastern medicine as euphoriant, purgative, and vermifuge. Other medicinal applications according to herbalists include: 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.


How plants can serve to fit these human needs is for one Yahweh the creator, and two they produce pharmacological phytochemicals according to studies. There is a scientific branch of chemistry called Phytochemistry that studies the medicinal aspect of plants. There are phytochemicals which are soluble in water, and others that are not. So herbalist have the option of capturing plant oils, or making teas, or producing tinctures, etc. Basically, it's a basic science. I am not a believer in making created things better than the creator. I like to keep herbalism simple, and involve nothing more than water and alcohol at most, and Gods blessings. We can see that the bible tells us that plants are medicine(Ezekiel 47:12 - And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine), but we must discern which plants are there for us, and in which ways it is not ok to use them. 1 John 4:1 "Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world."


Using Water And Sun To Isolate Essential Oils


This is a poor mans way of capturing essential oils, and it's absolutely required that you have fresh plant material to work with and not dried from some online vendor. First of all you should know that I will be selling live Wild Dagga plants in 2022 in my ETSY shop at herbalism.shop. So basically oil and water don't mix. Take a glass jar, and your freshly harvested flowers, and add them to clean water, and seal the top. Set it in the sun for a day and then come back. The flowers should sink and the oil will remain at the top. It's a delicate proess to collect it but it can be done.


The main speculated component of Leonotis leonurus is said to be either leonurine or marrubiin. Marrubiin possesses both antioxidant and carioprotective properties. Its also been scientifically demonstrated to improve myocardial function. A study suggest that the herb has anti-nociceptive, anti-inflammatory, and hypoblycemic properties. Sadly there are still people in this world that will listen to others who claim there is no science behind herbal medicine. Even some professors will tell you this. The sad part is all it takes in a few minutes, and you can find endless amounts of academic information on these plants via scholarly journals written by educated and trained professionals. What I've shared here with you is only the beginning. When I first got interested in plants like this from around the world around 2011, research and information has exploded over the last decade. I bet there is much more new information about it out there now.
