Product Description

Zornia latifolia is a flowering plant in the Fabaceae family. It is native to South America, however it can be found growing into Central and North America. It is a perennial plant that can grow to about 50cm from the ground. The leaves are bifoliolate, with each made up of two leaflets. The herbage is hairless although can sometimes be found with very slight hairs.

The name Maconha brava translates to ‘false marijuana’, which gives it the connotation to have similar effects as cannabis sativa when smoked. In Brazil, its effects are similar and the flower buds and leaves are smoked as a hallucinogen. An old folk legend speaks of the Ancient Gods smoking the ‘wild weed’.

Traditionally, the Pla of Northern Mexico used its leaves to make a tea. Due to its hallucinogenic effects, its current use is to induce a state of relaxation when either smoked or drank.
