If you know nothing of Datura metel, google that and do not try without understanding fully what you could be getting yourself into.
I have been growing and collecting the flowers and seeds for about a year now, the mother plant a gift from my witchy friend Vivian.
I’m storing flowers and seeds in a vase on my front porch and another batch of seeds in a clear glass jar sealed with a small hole in the top for air. It was a broken jar.
I plan to study and experiment with this plant to safely harvest the medicinal properties for skin, asthma and psyciatric benefits.
Today I inhaled the smoke of a dried flower after much reserarch. The leaves are smokable and have been used to treat asthma but the plant itself from the root to seed is deadly to humans if ingested without purification. Similar to cashews things we regularly eat.
I started with one leaf, then a few flowers. No noticible effects.
