Leonotis Leonurus, commonly referred to as Wild Dagga or Lion's Tail is an herb in the mint family. It is a beautiful South African bush that grows to 6 feet or more in height and has whorls of striking, velvety orange flowers.
Wild Dagga contains Leonurine, which is a psychoactive known to produce states of concentrated focus as well as contentment/relaxation. It is smoked traditionally or brewed into a tea. The tea however needs a lot of help with sweetener and good flavors in order to be a pleasant drink.
The psychoactive alkaloids are most-concentrated in the flower petals.
Dagga is a common ingredient in herbal smoking blends in the western world. It does not mimic the effects of any illegal drugs, it has a character and effect all its own, and, it's completely legal to possess almost anywhere in the world.
