Soooo... I can`t help but be inquisitive. I am SO looking forward to this EGA and especially meeting fellow SABers (many for the first time!) I really hope that there is a great turn out of SABers at EGA - I can't remember where I read it (here I think or if I just made it up tbh) but I recall maybe Ronnie (?) saying that if not for SAB, EGA wouldn't exist. (Bless your soul T.) Of course not obligatory, I'm just super excited and curious to know who's going to be at EGA2017! Honestly can't wait to put a face to the names from here. See you soon, you crazy kids!
This is a list of native narcotic plants that I have made using the books “Aboriginal People and Their Plants” by Phillip A. Clarke and “Australian Medicinal Plants” by E.V. Lassak & T. McCarthy. I will be adding information to the list as time goes on, but in the meantime I'm sure it will be a good reference for those looking to do more research into the native narcotic plants. From “Aboriginal People and Their Plants”: According to Clarke, the aboriginals would use these plants when they ran out of Pituri and Tobacco as substitute narcotics. Mostly they were chewed, after roasting over a fire and mixed with ash from Acacia sp., but sometimes were smoked through bamboo pipes. In Central Australia they used: Serrated Goodenia (Goodenia cycloptera) Sneezeweed (Centipeda sp.) Speedwell (Evolvulus alsinoides) Desert Gooseberry (Solanum ellipticum) Stiff Goodenia (Goodenia lunata) Bush Vicks (Pterocaulon serrulatum) In the Northern Territory: Granadilla (Passiflora quadrangularis) Heliotrope (Heliotrope sp.) Witchweed (Striga curviflora) Emu-berry (Grewia sp.) In the Kimberley: Bunch Spear Grass (Heteropogon contortus) Bunu bunu (Stemodia lythrifolia) Fruit Salad-bush (Pterocaulon sphacelatum) Lobelia (Lobelia sp.) Rock Isotome (Isotoma petraea) Unfortunately he only covers those territories, and for those of us in the southern half of the country we can't really do much with that list. Now “Australian Medicinal Plants” has a much more extensive list that is not territory specific, so more information will be added as I collect more data on where to find these plants and there traditional uses. Some of these are on the above list.
