PASSIONFLOWER—A BEAUTIFUL AND USEFUL GENUS FROM THE AMERICAS

Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata) is a genus of about 550 species of plants from the Americas, which have long been used in traditional medicine. Passionflower species are generally vines, though some are trees or shrubs. The plants tend to produce distinctive, iridescent flowers, which ripen into passionfruit. The nutritionally-dense passionfruit can be broken open and eaten, or can be mixed with water and sugar to produce a drink.

Spanish explorers came across passionflower during their conquest of the Americas. They brought the genus back to Spain, where it’s been naturalized and continues to be used for medicinal purposes. The Spanish coined the name “passionflower” because they felt the flower resembles a crucifix, which they associate with the passion of Christ.

MEDICINAL EFFECTS OF PASSIONFLOWER

Passionflower species have a wide range of medicinal effects. The incarnata species has long been prized by Native Americans for helping with insomnia, pain, anxiety and epilepsy. One study found that purple passionflower was as effective at treating anxiety as oxazepam, a pharmaceutical benzodiazepine. Incarnata raises brain levels of GABA, which calms the mind. Another study found that it improved sleep quality in people suffering from sleep disturbances. Incarnata is the most common type of passionflower used medicinally in the US and Europe, and in addition to the conditions already mentioned, is used to treat menstrual cramps, muscles cramps, neuralgia, alcoholism, rapid heartbeat, spasms and seizures.

In South America, edulis is the most common type of passionflower used medicinally, to treat a similar set of conditions. Parents sometimes prepare it as a fruit drink and give it to hyperactive children.

Though these two passionflower species are particularly popular, the medicinal benefits of the genus extend into many other species. Foetida, for example, has been shown to alleviate ulcers in rats.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS OF PASSIONFLOWER

Many passionflower species are high in beta-carboline harmala alkaloids, or harmines, a family of MAO inhibitors also found in Ayahuasca. Common harmines found in passionflower include harman, harmaline, harmalol, harmine and harmol.

Other active compounds found in passionflower species include flavonoids, coumarin, maltol, apigenin, saponarin, and quercetin.

HOW TO USE PASSIONFLOWER

A common method of preparation is to take the leaves and turn them into herbal teas. Some users will grind the leaves and place them in capsules for more precise dosing. Passionflower leaves can also be used to make tinctures. Dosage needed will depend on the specific species used, and the condition being treated. Passionflower treatment can interfere with prescription medication, so talk to your doctor before you try it.

    Nice for infusion
    Not really nice for vaporization, but it's really nice for an infusion for a good night.

    Well...
    My 80g order consisted of a 'Herbs of the Gods' package of passionflower in which all parts of the plant were present (except maybe the roots). Loads of twig parts and even seedpods. Now, that's no good for vaping or smoking, of course, so be aware! You could still make a decent tee, I suppose, but I'll take the pure fibers of the bloom from my own plants from now on, thank you! (But great tip in your article, Zamnesia!)

    ayant arrêté de fumer le tabac depuis 3 mois et le cannabis (pour plus très longtemps j'espère ) raison de santé , très bon compromis pour le tabac lorsque vous avez enlever toutes les branches et il y en beaucoup ,légèrement soporifique ,pas de quoi vous mettre à genoux garder les branches pour les infusions..

    Minor to no effects
    I felt almost nothing. Could have been placebo. The product is quite rough and you have to grind it or something. It's full of little sticks and very hard material which is not really possible to grind. I vaped it.

    tobacco substitute:
    The problem of this erbs it that the pack is full of sticks and sprigs so i can't use it for smoking... The smell is not so inviting.

    Super plante
    J'adore cette plante, elle permet l'augmentation des effet de la plupart des drogues mais justement à prendre avec précaution si combiner avec plusieurs drogues ou si prises a haute dose car la passiflore empêche en gros le cerveau de dégrader les molécules psychotropes (c'est un peu plus compliqué que ça). Néanmoins super combiner au Canabis et aussi très utile lors du sevrage de celle ci ! En association à la scutellaire elle permet de réduire les addictions, perso elle m'a permis d’arrêté le tabac et la bheu sans aucun soucis :)
