LOBELLIA

Product No. P12063

Also known as Indian Tobacco, Pukeweed, and Lobelia inflate L.
Lobellia originates from Eastern USA, but is also cultivated in other parts of the world. It has pale green or yellowish leaves about 3-8cm long, and fruit consisting of a capsule containing numerous small, brown seeds. The herb is used medicinally, and is cultivated once the fruits are ripe.

Lobellia is a respiratory stimulant, and is highly regarded for its effect in treating asthma and bronchitis. It is also a tobacco deterrent and is used as a major ingredient in many anti-smoking mixtures as it has similar, but less potent, pharmacological properties to nicotine, which help to alleviate withdrawal symptoms.
