Hypericum perforatum: St. John's Wort, Tipton's weed, rosin rose, goatweed, chase-devil, or Klamath weed
St John's Wort, is a flowering plant species of the genus Hypericum and a medicinal herb that is sold over-the-counter as a treatment for depression
With qualifiers, St John's Wort is used to refer to any species of the genus Hypericum. Therefore, H. perforatum is sometimes called common St John's Wort or perforate St John's Wort to differentiate it. Hypericum is classified in the family Hypericaceae, having previously been classified as Guttiferae or Clusiaceae.
Hypericum perforatum is a yellow-flowering, stoloniferous or sarmentose, perennial herb indigenous to Europe. It has been introduced to many temperate areas of the world and grows wild in many meadows. The herb's common name comes from its traditional flowering and harvesting on St John's day, 24 June. The genus name Hypericum is derived from the Greek words hyper (above) and eikon (picture), in reference to the plant's traditional use in warding off evil by hanging plants over a religious icon in the house during St John's day. The species name perforatum refers to the presence of small oil glands in the leaves that look like windows, which can be seen when they are held against the light.
St John's Wort is a perennial plant with extensive, creeping rhizomes. Its stems are erect, branched in the upper section, and can grow to 1 m high. It has opposing, stalk less, narrow, oblong leaves that are 12 mm long or slightly larger. The leaves are yellow-green in color, with transparent dots throughout the tissue and occasionally with a few black dots on the lower surface. Leaves exhibit obvious translucent dots when held up to the light, giving them a ‘perforated’ appearance, hence the plant's Latin name.
Its flowers measure up to 2.5 cm across, has five petals, and is colored bright yellow with conspicuous black dots. The flowers appear in broad cymes at the ends of the upper branches, between late spring and early to mid-summer. The sepals are pointed, with glandular dots in the tissue. There are many stamens, which are united at the base into three bundles. The pollen grains are ellipsoidal
St John's Wort reproduces both vegetative and sexually. It thrives in areas with either a winter- or summer-dominant rainfall pattern; however, distribution is restricted by temperatures too low for seed germination or seedling survival. Altitudes greater than 1500 m, rainfall less than 500 mm, and a daily mean January (in Southern hemisphere) temperature greater than 24 degrees C are considered limiting thresholds. Depending on environmental and climatic conditions, and rosette age, St John's Wort will alter growth form and habit to promote survival. Summer rains are particularly effective in allowing the plant to grow vegetative, following defoliation by insects or grazing.
The seeds can persist for decades in the soil seed bank, germinating following disturbance
St John's Wort is widely known as a herbal treatment for depression. In some countries, such as Germany, it is commonly prescribed for mild to moderate depression, especially in children and adolescents. Specifically, Germany has a governmental organization called Commission E which regularly performs rigorous studies on herbal medicine. It is proposed that the mechanism of action of St. John's Wort is due to the inhibition of reuptake of certain neurotransmitters. The best studied chemical components of the plant are hypericin and pseudohypericin.
An analysis of twenty-nine clinical trials with more than five thousand patients was conducted by Cochrane Collaboration. The review concluded that extracts of St John's Wort were superior to placebo in patients with major depression. St John's Wort had similar efficacy to standard antidepressants. The rate of side-effects was half that of newer SSRI antidepressants and one-fifth that of older tricyclic antidepressants. A report from the Cochrane Review states:
The available evidence suggests that the Hypericum extracts tested in the included trials a) are superior to placebo in patients with major depression; b) are similarly effective as standard antidepressants; and c) have fewer side-effects than standard antidepressants.
However the report also noted that some of the studies they reviewed may have been flawed or biased, as "results from German-language countries are considerably more favorable for Hypericum than trials from other countries".
St John's Wort is being studied for effectiveness in the treatment of certain somatoform disorders. Results from the initial studies are mixed and still inconclusive; some research has found no effectiveness, other research has found a slight lightening of symptoms. Further study is needed and is being performed.
A major constituent chemical, hyperforin, may be useful for treatment of alcoholism, although dosage, safety and efficacy have not been studied. Hyperforin has also displayed antibacterial properties against Gram-positive bacteria, although dosage, safety and efficacy has not been studied. Herbal medicine has also employed lipophilic extracts from St John's Wort as a topical remedy for wounds, abrasions, burns, and muscle pain. The positive effects that have been observed are generally attributed to hyperforin due to its possible antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. For this reason hyperforin may be useful in the treatment of infected wounds and inflammatory skin diseases. In response to hyperforin's incorporation into a new bath oil, a study to assess potential skin irritation was conducted which found good skin tolerance of St John's Wort.
A randomized controlled trial of St John's Wort found no significant difference between it and placebo in the management of ADHD symptoms over eight weeks. However, the St John's wort extract used in the study, originally confirmed to contain 0.3% hypericin, was allowed to degrade to levels of 0.13% hypericin and 0.14% hyperforin. Given that the level of hyperforin was not Approximately 370 species of the genus Hypericum exist worldwide with a native geographical distribution including temperate and subtropical regions of Europe, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia, Middle East, India, and China.

Ipomea violacea, Ipomea tricolor seeds: Heavenly Bule Morning Glory: organically grown seeds
History: Heavenly Blue is the most popular of all the morning glories. Back in the 1950's Albert Hoffman discovered the seeds of this, and relatives, contain an alkaloid, and shortly thereafter the common names of Heavenly Blue, Pearly Gates and Flying Saucers were given to various species to reflect what Hoffman learned. People should beware that indigenous people who used morning glory seeds never consumed more than 10 or 15 seeds at a time, and due to the alkaloids RSB would never advise anyone consume anything not researched to be safe. Our organically grown seeds are for growing purposes only.
Heavenly Blue is a charming garden climber, it has up to 4 inch diameter rich blue blooms, with a white to yellowish throat that begin within 6 to 8 weeks after germination. Best grown on trellises or woven wire fencing so they can twist their stems around and climb the way they like too. Sow seeds directly in the ground, be sure they are covered with ½ to 1 inch of finely tilled garden soil, keep watered regularly for a full 2 weeks after germination so they don't wither and die from no water while their roots are shallow. Seeds can be planted indoors 2 to 4 weeks before transplanted outside, and is recommended in areas where late frost can sometime come.

Lactuca serriola: Wild Lettuce, Prickly Lettuce seeds, herb and extract
Purchase Lactuca virosa herb, seeds and herbal extract
Wild harvested organically grown. RSB has been offering this for the past 18 years, and in that time we've learned times when the plant's alkaloid concentrations are at their highest, and that's when it's harvested then dried. So we promise everyone that our wild lettuce is the best you can possibly get!
Wild Lettuce stems are more medicinally active than it's leaves, they require a hammer mill for grinding, and have always been RSB's preferred extraction material.
Lactuca serriola, commonly known of as Wild Lettuce has been used medicinally since antiquity for things such as anxiety disorders, insomnia, restless leg syndrome and pain. In the United States, the plant experienced a resurgence in popularity in the 1970s as a feel nice occasional use herb. Today the plant is non scheduled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), meaning it is legal to grow, purchase and own without prescription or license. However, in February 2013 Dr. Oz went on national TV and spoke of it's usefulness as a sleep aid. It's true that the active compounds in wild lettuce, called lactucopicrin and lactucin, are closely related in pharmacology to morphine. It's effects, however, are very different and it's non addicting. So like all opiates it would be a sedative for most people but a stimulant for some. Anyone who knows opiates to be a stimulant can be reasonably sure Wild Lettuce is likely a stimulant to them too.
Prior to Dr. OZ’s announcement, wild lettuce has had a long history of medicinal uses, in the past 50 years, more as a herbal drug because smoking the extracted compound and leaves produces a mild euphoria. However, it’s never been on the list of drugs with a high potential for abuse.
Dr. Oz warned that certain people should not take wild lettuce extract if they are pregnant or breastfeeding, have the eye condition narrow-angle glaucoma, have allergies to related herbs such as ragweed, have surgery scheduled in the next two weeks or have enlarged prostate.

Lophophora decipiens is a beautiful Peyote subspecies. It highly resembles Lophophora fricii. These plants are found around El Amparo in the state of Coahuila. The seeds germinate very well in a soil mix based on coarse sand, peatless potting soil and some fine grit. Make sure you give the seedlings good ventilation and some shade a for a few weeks after germination. The seedlings of this tend to be sensitive to rot, which is why good ventilation is important.

RSB does not cultivate this species at our location, they come from cultivated plants elsewhere.

Mirabilis multiflora. Dried roots and growing seeds: Wild SW US Four O'clock, Colorado Four O' Clock, Wild Four O' Clock
For Mimosa hostilis inner root bark powder and seeds
The Hopi called this So' Kya. Has exquisite purple, morning glory shaped flowers, and succulent leaves. A perennial.
Not sold for consumption.
Dry roots offered here aren't wildcrafted (this is an endangered species) they're farmed organically on our property for at least two years before being harvested. This is classified by the US department of agriculture as a rare desert plant, and by horticulturist as an exotic semi succulent. Must see photo image to appreciate!
Among the Zuni people, the powdered root mixed with flour, made into a bread and used to decrease appetite. An infusion of the root is taken and rubbed on abdomen of hungry adults and children. An infusion of the powdered root is taken by adults or children after overeating.
The Hopi sometimes ate the raw or cooked roots for their pleasant inebriation like effects. Michale Moore mentions numerous uses, including soothing effects on stomachache disturbances.
My experiments with cooking the root flour into muffins was the cooking didn't cause any loss of whatever active compounds they have, a couple muffins caused an intriguing effect. The muffins uneaten seemed to have an extra preservative in them causing them to not get mold of become stale for a very long time, which I could only attribute to the Four O' Clock flour being mixed in.

Pedicularis bracteosa herb, AKA Elephant Head whole herb, extract and seeds
Wild US Prickly poppy herb, wholesale/retail
Blue Lotus 15:1 crystal extract
perennial flowering plant native to the Caucasus, northeastern Turkey, and northern Iran: Oriental poppies throw up a mound of finely cut, hairy foliage in spring. In hot arid climates after blooming the foliage dies away entirely, a property that allows their survival in the summer drought of Central Asia. Late-developing plants can be placed nearby to fill the developing gap. Fresh leaves appear with autumn rains.
This poppy has a hardiness zone of 3-8 average. It usually thrives in light calcareous soil and in full sun or part shade. Seeds cam be sown as early as November or anytime in spring or summer; reports contrary to this prevail, but this is a first-hand report. Seeds planted under ¼ in pressed soil in the fall germinate in northern NM in in March and April and survive numerous early spring frost, Oriental Poppies do not handle transplanting or over-watering well. Germination period is 10–20 days. These plants survive brutal winter frost in RSB’s area, and no mulching for over winter protection is done.
Aside from its natural brilliant orange-scarlet, since the later 19th century selective breeding for gardens has created a range of colors from clean white with eggplant-black blotches (Barr's White is the standard against which other whites are measured), through clear true pinks and salmon pinks to deep maroons and plum. In addition petals may be creased or fringed, such as Türkenlouis.
Oriental poppies are closely related to the great scarlet poppy Papaver bracteatum, which can be grown for the commercial extraction of thebaine, a main source for the legal synthesis of opiates. This species, however, does not produce any narcotic alkaloids such as morphine or codeine. Many garden Oriental poppies are actually hybrids between P. bracteatum and P. pseudo-orientale.

The below context is partially from Wikipedia but should never be taken as total truth. Common practice in law enforcement is to deliberately withhold facts about the laws, it's not always done, but if someone gets into a situation with them nobody can then plea that they read something on the internet. Ignorance is not an excuse in the eyes of the law.
In the United States cultivation of these poppies are quasi illegal/non-illegal. Opium is listed as a Schedule II controlled substance by the DEA. In addition, "Opium poppy and poppy straw" are also prohibited. However, this is not typically enforced for poppies grown or sold for ornamental or food purposes. Though the opium poppy is legal for culinary or aesthetic reasons, poppies were once grown as a cash crop by farmers in California. The law of poppy cultivation in the United States is somewhat ambiguous. The reason for the ambiguity is because The Opium Poppy Control Act of 1942 (now repealed), stated that any opium poppy should be declared illegal, even if the farmers were issued a state permit.
The Opium Poppy Control Act stated:
It shall be unlawful for any person who is not the holder of a license authorizing him to produce the opium poppy, duly issued to him by the Secretary of the Treasury in accordance with the provisions of this Act, to produce the opium poppy, or to permit the production of the opium poppy in or upon any place owned, occupied, used, or controlled by him.
This led to the Poppy Rebellion, and to the Narcotics Bureau arresting anyone planting opium poppies and forcing the destruction of poppy fields of anyone who defied the prohibition of poppy cultivation. Though the press of those days favored the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, the state of California supported the farmers who grew opium poppy seeds for uses in foods such as poppyseed muffins. Today, this area of law has remained vague and remains somewhat controversial in the United States. The Opium Poppy Control Act of 1942 was repealed on 27 October 1970.
RSB wouldn't advise anyone to milk poppies for latex because it's a dead give away of what the intended use is (an illegal one) It also renders the seeds non viable, destroys the ornamental purpose of the pods, not to mention there's no need.
Common in flower beds by poppy lovers worldwide because of the multitude of colored blooms, and it's pods are exquisite in dried flower arrangements.

Syrian Rue has a long history of use in middle eastern fabric dyes, and historically used for mood enhancement. traditional Arabic rugs are often dyed with Syrian Rue seeds dye.
Various people and cultures have thought of many uses for this plant. Probably it lost popularity after the Nazi Germans used extracts of this as a truth cerium. My hunch is if they had used Saint John's wort for that, then Saint John's wort would now not be popular.
William Shakespeare's famous line, "A rose is a rose and a rose by another name is still a rose". Meaning it doesn't matter who had anything to do with something or what it's called, that doesn't change what it is.
Syrian rue is one of humankind's long allies and for that reason will go into the plant hall of fame.
Around our place Syrian rue is more a weed, it's wonderful to see it's blooms through the summer. We never planted any seeds, one just popped up on its own. Sometimes a year or more passes with no sign of it, then one year the same plant comes back from its roots. Meaning it's one hell of a hardy plant. Tolerates sub zero F temperatures and extreme heat. It's roots also contain about half the contravention of harmaline as it's seeds.
