A long climbing plant with finger-shaped leaves, large crown-shaped flowers and sweet, egg-shaped fruits. Can be found in gardens all over the world.
Asia and North America.
Harmala alkaloids (including Harmaline and Harmine) and Flavonoids.
Passionflower itself has a calming effect, but is more often used to increase the effect of other psychoactive herbs like Damiana or Skullcap because of the MAO-inhibiting properties of Harmaline and Harmine.
Dried flowers and leaves can be smoked or used to make a tea.
From 0,5 gram in a smoking combination up to 30 grams to make a pot of pure Passionflower tea.
