Devil’s trumpet



Scientific name: Datura metel

Family: Solanaceae

Origin: China and W Asia

Medicinal use: All Datura plants contain tropane alkaloids such as scopolamine and atropine, mainly in their seeds and flowers, as well as the roots of certain species such as D. wrightii. Due to the presence of these substances, Datura has been used for centuries in some cultures as a poison. The toxicity of a given plant depends on its age, where it is growing, and local climatic conditions. These variations make Datura exceptionally dangerous as a drug.
