A member of the mint ( Lamiaceae) family,
Leonotis Leonurus (Lion's Tail/Wild Dagga) is native to southern Africa. Its fiery orange flowers are used as a marijuana substitute. The smoke is reported to be quite harsh on the lungs.
Lion's Tail (Wild Dagga) is drunk as a tea (infusion), or the flowers can be smoked.
Lion's Tail (Wild Dagga) has a mildly sedating effect... an effect reported to be similar to smaller quantities of marijuana.
According to reports ... this ethnobotanical is more relaxing and sedating than 'high' inducing. Multiple reports from different sources indicate that Wild Dagga can act to potentiate other substances.
The active alkaloid in Lion's tail is leonurine, which, following research, may be as addictive as nicotine when used regularly. There is an array of sources of information for leonurine, as it occurs in several related plant species and these are used as traditional medicines by multiple peoples around the world.
Based on anecdotal reports, the most frequently observed adverse effects are related to the mode of use. The smoke is reported as being harsh and dry, so mouth, tongue and throat irritation results. When drunk as a tea, numbness or tingling in the mouth has been reported.
Legal in the USA
