Feel Fine and Treat Colds
, lion’s tail is known for its medicinal and mild psychoactive properties. It has traditionally been used by South Africans, the Chinese, and the Vietnamese for its euphoric effects. Medicinally, it has been used to treat colds, fevers, tuberculosis, jaundice, high blood pressure, diabetes, and snake bites. The plant is native to South Africa where the juice of the stem is used as an infusion to purify the blood. The dried leaves and flowers have a mild calming effect when smoked. It is considered far less potent than Cannabis, and is not classified as a hallucinogenic. Do not confuse lion’s tail with motherwort, another plant that is sometimes commonly called lion’s tail.
