Também conhecida como rabo-de-leão (Brasil), as folhas desta planta eram fumadas pelos índios hotentotes da África do Sul, para obterem um efeito eufórico. Cresce sobretudo no sul e no este de África. O seu alcaloide principal é a leonurina.
Na medicina tradicional africana, a Leonotis leonurus tem sido muito usada em muitos tratamentos diferentes. Também é usada em caso de mordida de cobra e como amuleto para manter as cobras afastadas.
Sedativo, calmante. Ligeiramente eufórico.
Faz chá. Para um efeito mais forte podes fumar as folhas da Leonotis leonurus.
Deves usar a Leonotis leonurus com precaução. Tem demonstrado causar uma dependência semelhante à do tabaco.
Had some more experience with this and i would not recommend buying it, effects are so minimal that they could easily be placebo.
I would like to know if anyone tried the 20x extract and how that worked !
Got the leaves and some other fine herbs with the mail this morning, the mail-man woke me up and with a sore throath from smoking a lot of weed the night before i decided to try the dagga first.
Made a bowl of tea from about 1-2 gram, which should be a pretty low dose i guess.
It woke me up entirely, also my roommate told me i was being very hyperactive. Pretty amazing if u consider the fact that i just woke up without sleeping very well and being really tired.
However this stuff is supposed to calm me down not energize ? Maybe because i'm an ''ADHD'' person this works the other way around for me, like f.e speed is known to make me calm.
Anyway it does have some effect, i mixed it with a tea-bag and some honey, its easy to drink but its not delicious or anything like that.
I ordered a bunch of herbs from here which arrived yesterday, and in the night/morning I decided to try out the LL-flowers.
Even though it seems people don't like the smoke, I didn't really feel like drinking tea at the time, so I mixed up the flowers with a little Damiana (wich seems to work at a non-documented way on me, being an autist and all) and rolled it up.
Now I think it was a little stupid of me to mix with Damiana, since I really couldn't figure out wich herb did what.
Anyway, my anxiety problems (who before I smoked literally ached in my chest) were all gone within ten minutes, and I felt very at ease with everything.
I really liked this. Thanks!
