Flowers ~ Leonotis Leonurus Herb
Many products include the leaves. Our product includes only the flowering tops, which have been ground to save space. As the tops are ground, we sometimes get some of the upper stem that is between the flower clusters. Most of this is removed when we get it, and we also remove pieces we find. These flowers are sent to us direct from South Africa where dagga originates. We also have a variety of klip dagga products and extracts as well.
Wild dagga (L. Leonurus), also known as Lion's tail, is closely related to Klip dagga (L. Nepetifolia). Both are similar in that they have gorgeous bright orange flower clusters and are used similarly as medicinals for things like stress relief, fever and cough. Wild dagga is one of several herbs traditionally used by the Xhosa tribe of South Africa. Its active constituent is called leonurine. We offer both seeds and flowers of this species.
