Wild Dagga is a flowering herb in the mint family that is used in traditional African herbal medicine, particularly within the Hottentot tribe. Wild dagga is most sought after for its relaxing properties, but it also has been used for pain relief and itching. Wild dagga was used both externally and internally. Wild dagga is a soothing herb, which explains why it may have been used to calm coughs and ease mild pain and itching from insect bites. This same tranquilizing effect also seems to explain why the Hottentots found it useful to ease symptoms of the Flu and bronchitis. We use chemicals in our modern cough medicine that have this type of effect too. Usually cough syrups contain dextromethorphan or codeine, both of which have relaxing effects that dull the impulses that cause us to cough or itch. Wild Dagga, known botanically as leonotis leonurus, contains the natural alkaloid leonurine. From an herbal standpoint, it makes sense that natives would seek out plants that dull the senses a bit in order to treat unpleasant sensations. Wild dagga may also relieve tension both physically and emotionally. For this reason, it has been used traditionally to ease muscle tension, and it perhaps most commonly used as a stress reliever. World Seed Supply offers a wide range of wild dagga and klip dagga ( a very close relative) products.
