Rich in resin, the stimulating inflorescence of the Lion's tail, also know as Wild Dagga, is widely smoked by the Namas (Southern Africa). It is also a traditional natural stimulant and makes a desirable infusion. The alkaloid leonurine, which is
responsible for the intoxicating effect, is readily soluble in water and stimulates the myocardial function.

Growing instructions
Like many other South African species, the seeds of the lion's tail sometimes germinate very slowly. Depending on the origin, the seeds may need the full range of temperatures - from winter cold to summer heat - for successful germination. Also, a certain amount of light is necessary. Later, Wild Dagga can be planted outdoors. In frost-free winters, the plant is perennial. Can also be kept as a houseplant. Loves sun and nutritious soil.
