Since Piper methysticum does not grow in New
Zealand, the Maoris looked for a substitute when
they settled the islands. They found it in the form
of an indigenous pepper species, which they used
like Piper methysticum to produce a kavalike drink.
The plant contains an essential oil with the active
substances myristicin and elemicine (Bock 1994,
98*).
