The dried out blossoms and leaves are additionally smoked to eliminate epilepsy. The leaves and blossoms are reported to produce a light blissful impact when smoked and also have actually been claimed to have a comparable, although less potent, psychedelic result to cannabis. The phytochemistry of particularly the non-volatile components of leonotis leonurus has actually been thoroughly investigated as a result of passion produced as a result of the wide range of organic impacts reported for this plant. Greater than 50 substances have actually been isolated and also qualified. L. leonurus consists of generally terpenoids, especially labdane diterpenes, the major diterpene reported is marrubiin. Various other compounds have been reported by some writers to have been isolated from the plant, consisting of, in the prominent literary works just, the gently psychoactive alkaloid, leonurine. Leonurine has nevertheless, never ever been reported by any clinical analysis of the removes of L. leonurus. The standard use by smoking cigarettes additionally needs more investigation regarding just how the chemistry and activity are influenced by this kind of administration. Research study has actually shown the psychedelic effects of the crude remove of L. leonurus, but verification of the visibility of psychoactive substances, as well as isolation and characterization, is still needed. Much job is therefore still called for on the facet of quality assurance to make certain safety, high quality and efficacy of the product supplied to patients, as this plant is commonly made use of in South Africa as a conventional medicine. Commercially readily available plant sources supply a feasible alternative for phytochemical research study, especially with regard to the proper recognition of the plant material in order to recognize as well as delimit very closely relevant types such as L. leonurus as well as L. nepetifolia which are very comparable in behavior.
