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.
Don't buy this expecting to get any kind of substantial high anywhere near cannabis (under normal circumstances; read below).
However, that being said the taste is very nice in my opinion. Here in the Netherlands it is custom to roll our joints with tobacco in it, but I actually never really liked the taste of tobacco with the weed, it just made it burn longer and in that way 'enlongated the smoking experience'. The wild dagga turned out to be a great subtitute! You might have to get used to the taste, but it certainly doesn't taste bad in my opinion.
Then some time later I made an amazing discovery. Everybody who has discounted this herb as inactive, or not strong enough, should give it a try while on a psychedelic! I usually smoke some cigarettes when I'm on a psychedelic; it feels really nice then (I'm not a regular smoker), but having just discovered wild dagga, and using it as a substitute I smoked some wild dagga during the trip. And let me tell you, it was certainly active. It made the trip almost instantly more mellow, I got more sedated, got a fixed smile on my face (all of this more so than it was before haha..). It felt like smoking cannabis when sober actually, which I think is great. I usually avoid cannabis during a trip except if I want to enhance the psychedelic effects, or at the end of a trip to bring them back. The wild dagga did not really enhance the psychedelic effects at all making it a nice relaxing smoke during the experience. I highly recommend you give it a try.
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.
