PACIFIC NORTHWEST GROWN. Lobelia (Lobelia inflata), Cut and Sifted, Certified Organic
Lobelia has many uses. It is known to help with opening up the lungs in cases of asthma and respiratory issues. It is important to not overdo it though, because another name for Lobelia is "Puke Weed," and it will induce vomiting if too much is taken.
Lobelia also contains a chemical called lobeline, which binds to nicotine receptors in the body, so it is sometimes used in a herbal smoking mixture when folks are trying to quit tobacco cigarettes. Smoking is never good for your health, but in small doses, as a transitional supporting herb, Lobelia may be helpful.
As with all herbs, please use common sense. Always seek the advice of a qualified health care practitioner if you have any questions.
