Baybean is a relative to the common pea and grows in sandy soil near the ocean coastline. This plant is referenced in botanical texts as being both Canavalia Rosea as well as Canavalia Maritima.
Said to be held in reverence by the Mazatec Indians of Mexico, and was possibly used in ritual. It is not understood whether the psychoactive properties were utilized for shamanic work by natives. Though it is likely that baybean was partaken of somewhere, for its growth range is fairly wide stretching from the gulf coast of the US down to Mexico and possibly to northern S. America.
