Description: D. stramonium is a foul-smelling, erect annual, freely-branching herb that forms a bush up to 2 to 5 feet (60–150 cm) tall. The root is long, thick, fibrous and white. The stem is stout, erect, leafy, smooth, and pale yellow-green. The stem forks off repeatedly into branches, and at each fork forms a leaf and a single, erect flower. The leaves are approximately 3 to 8 inches (8–20 cm) long, smooth, toothed, soft, irregularly undulate. The upper surface of the leaves is a darker green, and the bottom is a light green. The leaves have a bitter and nauseating taste, which is imparted to extracts of the herb, and remains even after the leaves have been dried. D. stramonium generally flowers throughout the summer. The fragrant flowers are trumpet-shaped, white, and 21⁄2 to 31⁄2 inches (6–9 cm) long, and grow on short stems from either the axils of the leaves or the places where the branches fork. The calyx is long and tubular, swollen at the bottom, and sharply angled, surmounted by five sharp teeth. The corolla, which is folded and only partially open, is white, funnel-shaped, and has six prominent ribs. The flowers open at night, emitting a pleasant fragrance and providing food for nocturnal moths. The plant flowers nearly all the summer. The flowers are large and handsome, about 3 inches in length, growing singly on short stems springing from the axils of the leaves or at the forking of the branches. The calyx is long, tubular and somewhat swollen below, and very sharply five-angled, surmounted by five sharp teeth. The corolla, folded and only half-opened, is funnel-shaped, of a pure white, with six prominent ribs, which are extended into the same number of sharp-pointed segments. The flowers open in the evening for the attraction of night-flying moths, and emit a powerful fragrance. The egg-shaped seed capsule is walnut-sized and either covered with spines or bald. At maturity it splits into four chambers, each with dozens of small brown/black seeds. Cultivation: Datura is easily cultivated, growing well in an open, sunny situation. It will flourish in most moderately good soils, but will do best in a rich calcareous soil, or in a good sandy loam, with leaf mold added. Seeds are sown in the open in May, in drills 3 feet apart, barely covered. Sow thinly, as the plants attain a good size and grow freely from seed. Thin out the young plants to a distance of 12 to 15 inches between each plant in the drill. From 10 to 15 lb. of seed to the acre should be allowed. The soil should be kept free from weeds in the early stages, but the plants are so umbrageous and strong that they need little care later. If the summer is hot and dry, give a mulching of rotted cow-manure. The plants may also be raised from seeds, sown in a hot-bed in February or March, or in April in boxes in a cool greenhouse, the seedlings, when large enough, being transferred to small pots, in which they are grown with as much light and air as possible till June, when they are planted in the open. Datura transplants readily. If grown for leaf crop, the capsules should be picked off as soon as formed, as in a wind the spines tear the leaves. Some seed, for propagation purposes, should always be collected from plants kept specially for the purpose. Medicinal Uses: The use of this plant is subject to legal restrictions in some countries and US states. It should be used with extreme caution and only under the supervision of a qualified practitioner since all parts of the plant are very poisonous and the difference between a medicinal dose and a toxic dose is very small. D. stramonium is now used to treat asthma, and gastrointestinal problems, also aches, abscesses,arthritis, boils, headaches, hemorrhoids, rattlesnake bites, sprains, swellings, and tumors (Sandoval,1998). It acts as a sedative in large doses and as a stimulant and defoliant in high ones. Datura is an anodyne, antibiotic, antispasmodic and narcotic. Relieving the pains of rheumatism and sciatica when applied as an ointment, and easing spasms of Parkinson's disease are unproven accounts of the effects of Jimson weed. Most of the plant is used for medicinal reasons. Eating the seeds rapidly gets the plant to the nervous system, but also increases the risk of lethal overdose. The leaves can be dried and smoked to relax the bronchial muscles of the throat, and leaves are used also to line beds of those with insomnia. Annette Sandoval in Homegrown Healing recommends using the fresh leaves,flowers, or seeds. In an infusion, 2 teaspoons of fresh leaves per cup of hot water, or a poultice using any variation of the recommended parts. Datura is highly hallucinogenic and extremely poisonous, and has proved fatal in some instances. Do not ingest the herb unless under the supervision of a qualified expert - many teenage deaths and injuries result each year when they experiment with this herb. Sensitive skin needs only to touch the herb to be irritated. No international shipping, Canada and US is still free shipping. Condition: 2018 seeds
