Re: Top 10 Medicinal Plants?
I see you guys don't know much about herbs. My top choice would be:

Echinacea(Purple Cone Flower) It's a blood purifier and easy to grow.

Aloe! This is all I use for burns. It takes away the pain like no other. GET A PLANT!

Dandelion

Golden seal is a much more powerful blood cleanser.
It can counteract toxic bites as well.

And anyway what is knowing and subjectivity about.
Who can say which is better.

Really? If you can find a big enough piece, Cut away the black until you get to the tan stuff. It's also one of the best fire tinders in nature next to birch bark.

Making tea from Chaga boosts the immune system.

Re: Top 10 Medicinal Plants?
This thread covers it, but there is still so much more.

Your creators have given you life, use it or be burned by the sun.

Cayenne though, on top.

And at first I thought the person saying COCA/OPIUM was trolling/being a fucking idiot.

Then I realized I have had broken bones in which case I was made sick from state given drugs.

If I just smoked some opium in nepal I'm sure I would've passed out and woke up having slept the pain off.

The coca tea leaves that you can drink in mexico or bolivia (around the world) helps with digestion, wakes you up, doesn't give you the jitters, doesn't give you brain fog, doesn't hurt the liver or kidneys, doesn't cause neurological damage with long term use.


Dependence is in the mind of the user. Beyond that.

Earth's literal garden is beyond anything any man can produce.

In fact, everything that is produced and sold for profit is more harmful than anything in nature. By the production of the drug as well as the effect on your body.

One more thing for the medicine garden would be catnip! For calming effects in humans and also a great insect repellant, just brush your legs and pants up against it before you head out into the pastures!
I need to check into yarrow, as another poster mentioned that, as a repellant.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

I'd like to go quietly in my sleep, like grandpa did. Not screaming in terror like the people in the back seat of the car he was driving.

That's just what I'd grow because you don't find it wild much here.

But there's tons that I wouldn't grow because it grows everywhere and is there for the taking.

Mullin
Dandelion
Tansey
Horsetail
angelica
etc

Cool topic.
