Lion's Tail Dried Wild Dagga Petals

Lions Tail, also know as Motherwort, belongs to the mint family of plants.

Wild Dagga is smoked or made into a medicinal tea by the Hottentot tribe of South Africa. Because of its euphoric effects and marijuana-like experience, Wild Dagga is often referred to as a Cannabis substitute. Leonotis leonurus (Wild Dagga, Lion's Tail) species is also used in Eastern medicine as euphoriant, purgative, and vermifuge.

The main uses of lion’s tail in western herbal medicine are to relieve premenstrual discomfort, ease menopausal symptoms, and regulate menstrual periods. In addition, it may have some effectiveness for normalizing rapid heartbeat -- especially when a "pounding heart" is associated with anxiety.

Less intense and overwhelming trips were reported when smoking lions tail with salvia divinorum.


  • Smoked: 1-2 grams of Lion’s tail
  • Tea: prepared by soaking about 2 grams or about 1/4 of a teaspoon of dried Lion’s Tail in about 5 ounces of boiling water for 5 to 10 minutes. The solid particles should be strained out and the somewhat bitter-tasting tea may be sweetened or flavored with other herbals such as ginger before drinking it. Usual recommendations are to drink one cup of motherwort tea three times a day.

Leonitis Leonurus, or wild dagga, is native to South Africa and is a member of the leonurus strain of plants from the Mint family. It is a hearty shrub that grows up to 2-3 meters tall and prefers a climate with many hours of full sun. Its botanical name is derived from the shape and color of its bright orange flowers. Leonitis refers to the shape of the petals and is derived from the Greek words leon and otis, which mean lion and ear respectively. Leonurus refers to the vibrant hue and means lion colored. Consequently, Leonitis Leonurus is also known as Lion’s Tail.
