Echinacea purpurea produes phytochemicals of the endo-cannabinoid realm. It's tied in with the immune system, acording to research. It produces pink flowers, which make tons of seeds in the center of their cones. Even the seeds are used by herbalists, and can be combined with the leaves, roots, flowers, and stems ( many people do not know this ). It's most commonly used in the form of a tea, but others like tincutres. Personally for Echinacea, I just drink a lot of tea, as I find it's the best way to use it.
People often ask, "What do I do with it, It's just a big bag of leaves?" You boil it in water, and then strain out the leaves for a good tasting tea. It doesn't taste bad at all. I use two cups to feel better. I suggest at least using around 5-7 grams per batch of tea. Make it strong, and add just a drop of oil and put the lid on. The oil keeps it from boiling over. You can reuse the leaf you strained out up to a few times.
Echinacea blends well with Hemp and Cannabis in general ( including the Female MJ variety ). This is because it too produces naturally occuring phytochemicals that interact with the human endo-cannabinoid system. It doesn't give you a buzz, but it has a complex relationship with our bodies, and research shows it can do some pretty remarkable things, in terms of pharmacology ( see my citations ) It's also anti-viral! It's been utilized by herbalist for: Urinary Tract Infections, Cold, Flu, Cough, Aches and Pains, Fever, Tootheache, General Malace Or Ill Feelings, Detoxification, Immune System Support, and Sore Throat.
Echinacea is a personal favorite of Star Botanicals, and was one of the first items sold, for a reason. Plants such as this have been an intregal part of human culture and society sense the dawn of humanity. In my personal taste, it is one of my favorite plants ever and I swear by the tea. I coulnd't imagine life without it and thank the ancient of days and Jesus Christ for it daily, as well as their existence.
