Leonotis nepetifolia (Klip Dagga) leaves were smoked by the Hottentot tribe of southern Africa because of its euphoric effect. It grows mainly in southern and eastern Africa. The main active alkaloid is leonurine.
Leonotis nepetifolia (Klip Dagga) is closely related to Leonotis leonurus (also known as Wild Dagga or Lion's Tail.) It is said that Klip Dagga contains more leonurine than any other Wild Dagga strain.
In traditional African medicine Leonotis has been widely used as a part of many different treats. It is also used in case of a snake bite and as a charm to keep snakes away.
Klip Dagga effects

Leonotis nepetifolia usage
Use as a tea.
One should use Klip Dagga with caution. It has shown to be habit forming similar to tobacco.
Hey there - I tested it with a vaporizer first - I think that i am usually quite sensitive to herbs, because I dont smoke tobacco or something - an usually I get the strongest effect out of a herb with a vaporizer, but in this case it didnt seem to have an effect. at this place I have to admit that I smoked a lot of weed in the past few months, but I had also a break of 2 weeks since the last weed-consumption.
smoked without vaporizing it, I felt an lack-of-oxygen effect, needless to say...
Though I did not try it as tea!
