You only need to know like ten plants: globemallow, cheeseweed, ephedra, creosote, Mormontea, jojoba, maybe a few flowers. You wanna go up north, learn verbena, mugwort, and what a juniper tree looks like.
The Mormontea (Ephedra spp.) were coning out robustly, which was super neat to see. The gravely washes were bursting with Bigelow monkeyflower (Diplacus bigelovii) and woolly sunflower (Eriophyllum ambiguum var. palacaeum). (4/) pic.twitter.com/fntOwxIYfP
MormonTea (Ephedra trifurca) is a short, spiny, sticklike shrub with thin green stems. Pale yellow flowers appear in the spring. Stems & roots are high in flavonoids & were used for medicinal purposes by American Indians and early pioneers.
Saw a lady in Baltimore who'd stroked out from mixing Tranylcypromine and an ephedra-loaded OTC diet pill. "But it said it was NATURAL!?!" Yeah..major ingredient was MormonTea...full of natural ephedrine.
