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.

    Kanna (IRS) vs Passiflore ( IMOA )
    Bonjour, j ai récemment acheté de la passiflore histoire de le mélanger avec du dagga sauvage et agrémenter le tout d un peu de cannabis. Mais j ai aussi voulu acheter du kanna sous forme e liquide et j ai lu sur internet qu il n était pas conseillé de mélanger du kanna avec des IMOA ( comme la passiflore ) donc je me demandais si c était vraiment bon ou mauvais de mélanger le tout?? Merci pour vos réponses

    Bonne soirée
    Très bien en substitution du tabac. Juste un peu trop de grosses branches à mon goût, délicat pour rouler.

    efficace
    Très bon décontractant et anxiolytique, efficace pour ceux qui en ont "cérébralement" besoin, à infuser plus ou moins fort pour plus ou moins d'effets. Ceci n'est pas une drogue récréative, c'est plus une alternative aux anxiolytique ou somnifères. Merci Zamnesia =)
