$3.95

Family:  Dogbane (Apocynaceae)

Hardy to Zones 4 to 8

(Dogbane) Herbaceous perennial native to continental US, an excellent source of easy-to-make string.  The plants grow to about 5 feet tall, quite thin and upright, and the bark can readily be stripped off to form cordage as-is, or can be rolled or braided into rope.  The photo shows a bunch of the seed pods that have been tied together in the field with string made of the plant.  The eclectic physicians used Indian Hemp cordage to make tooth pulling lassos. Traditional usage (Eclectic): cardiac stimulant.  Low dose botanical, potentially toxic, containing cardioactive glycosides.  Plant prefers shade to sun and is often found in abandoned agricultural land or the cracks between streamside cobbles.  Sow in spring, just beneath surface, tamp well and keep moist until germ.  This is a tough plant and is a long survivor on the landscape.

    Are your hemp seeds high in CBD? Are your hemp seeds only for consumption, or are they fertile and can be cultivated?

      Hi There, Please check the Latin, these are non-cannabis, they have nothing to do with CBD.
