Inebriating mint (Lagochilus inebrians)
Inebriating mint is also known as intoxicating or Turkistan mint. It really is a member of the mint family Labiatae and it is native from Cental Asia to Iran and Afghanistan. The traditional use of the plant dates back centuries. Tajik, Tatar, Turkoman and Uzbek tribesmen used it during mysteries and feasts for its intoxicating and sedative effects.
Lagochilus inebrians is a very rare plant and there are only a few places where it grows. Very little is known even within its small native region.
Like Salvia divinorum, this is one of the few members of the mint family (Labiatae) that is traditionally used as an inebriant. The most commonly reported effects include relaxation, euphoria, and subtle perceptual changes.
Traditionally Lagochilus inebrians was consumed as tea. Dried leaves and flowers, sometimes mixed with stems and fruits, should be boiled in water and mixed with honey or sugar to reduce bitterness. Use between 5 and 15 grams.
