In Amazonia, this plant is referred to as bati
matoshi or piqui pichana, and its dried leaves are
smoked as a marijuana substitute (see Cannabis
indica) (Duke and Vasquez 1994, 154*). In Brazil,
the herbage finds folk medicinal use as an
astringent and antispasmodic (Grieve 1982,427*).
The plant is known in central Africa as osimmiseng,
and its leaves are used in a magical
medicine for spells with «worms" (Akendengue
1992, 170*). Members of the Bastar tribe (India)
make the leaves into pills that are swallowed to treat "weakness of the semen" (Jain 1965, 244*).
The plant contains labdane (diterpenes).
