Contains 5 grams of dried Wild Dagga flowers. In sealed plastic packaging.
Effects of Wild Dagga
The dried flowers of the shrub Wild Dagga (Leonotis Leonorus, also known as Lion’s tail) contain the active agent leonurine. Leonurine relaxes the nervous system and has calming, mildly euphoric effects. For this reason, Wild Dagga is similar to cannabis, although it’s not quite as strong. Wild Dagga makes a fine replacement for tobacco in joints with cannabis. But be careful: like tobacco, smoking Wild Dagga is very addictive!
Use of Wild Dagga
Wild Dagga is usually used for smoking. You can also use it to brew tea. Let one or two tea spoons of dried Wild Dagga tips steep in some hot water.
Warning! Smoking Wild Dagga is very addictive to some people – equally addictive as tobacco!
Wild Dagga is part of the lamiacae or mint family, just like mint, thyme and rosemary. It originates in the south and east of Africa. The South African Khoikhoi smoked Wild Dagga (sometimes combined with Kanna) for its calming effects, to reach a state of intoxication. The name Dagga was also taken from the Khoikhoi: in their language, “dachab” means cannabis. Wild Dagga is known for its beneficial effects on the heart and was traditionally used medicinally to treat high blood pressure, diabetes, dhiarrea, muscle cramps and tuberculosis. It also functioned as a talisman against snakes and for treating snake bites.
