This plant has had a bad reputation for a long while. And all the while, Southern folk herbalists have quietly used it with great results. I have to consider this plant to be in one of my top 10 essentials, I love it that much. And while it is a low dose botanical, that does not mean it’s not a valid medicine, it simply means that you have to be careful with how much you use.
This is definitely not a “beginner’s herb” but if you’ve been working with herbs for awhile, you can safely use it as long as you don’t overdo it.
In this month’s issue, we’ll talk about how to safely use this plant with great effectiveness and what Poke is best used for as well as safety precautions and what to do if you do take too much.
