An exquisite south American tree, or shrub, in the Datura family that can produce an abundance of large trumpet shaped flowers.
Like Datura, all parts of this plant are highly parsimonious. This toxic warning is not given to create reverse psychology effect; that is to say something is bad so people will do the opposite (ingest it).
Regardless of anything written in any shamanistic literature about it being useful when consumed; RSB is here to say that's baloney!
Consumption of this or Datura can, and often does, land people in the hospital or dead in the morgue.
Wild harvested organic.
