These are the dried leaves of the Klip Dagga plant, ground into a powder! While these are less potent than the flowers, they are still great to use in teas, and the price is quite exceptional!
Klip Dagga, commonly referred to as Lion’s Ear is an herb in the mint family native to tropical northern Africa and southern India.
Related to Motherwort and Wild Dagga, Klip Dagga has similar chemical constituents. This family of plants contain Leonurine, which is a psycoactive know to produce trance states as well as contentment/relaxation. It is smoked traditionally or brewed into a tea.
When purchasing any Dagga products it’s important to understand the quality spectrum of products available.
The psychoactive alkaloids are most-concentrated in the flower petals. Botanical vendors offer 3 main ‘grades’ of Dagga products…the least potent and least sought after is the foliage mix of leaves and few flowers. The middle potency product is ‘whole flowers’, which is a mix of flower bulb heads as well as some petals. The finest Dagga available, and also the most potently psychoactive , comes in the form of ‘Pure flower Petals’.
At Eternity in a Box we carry only the finest quality of each botanical we offer. Our Klip Dagga, naturally, is the Pure Petals only. You will get no flower heads, and no foliage, Only Pure Flower Petals.
Dagga plants are a common additive in herbal smoking blends even today in the western world. Both Wild Dagga and Klip Dagga are fairly renowned as some of the best psychoactive smoking herbs.
