Known primarily as a spice, dill has also long
enjoyed a reputation as an aphrodisiac. It is also
said to be an inebriant, for "the garden plant is
numbered among the so-called legal highs; when
dried and smoked, dill induces a mild euphoria"
(Sahihi 1995, 153*). In the American "drug scene;'
dill leaves are sometimes smoked mixed with
glutamate. Dill contains an essential oil (approximately
4% ) consisting of carvone, limonene,
phellandrene, terpinene, and myristicin. It is likely
that dill is considered to be psychoactive because it
contains myristicin (cf. Myristica fragrans) as well as dillapiol, a nonaminated precursor for the
synthesis of DMMDA-2 (cf. Petroselinum crispum)
(Gottlieb 1973, 12*). However, as Hildegard von
Bingen noted, "[N] 0 matter how [dill] is eaten, it
makes people sad" (Physica 1.67).
