The root of this plant is said to have been used by
the Navajo-Kayenta Indians as a narcotic
(Moerman 1986,469*). It is questionable whether
this information is correct, for the root is also used
as a kind of chewing gum (Vestal 1952, 53*). The
chemistry of the plant is unknown (Ott 1993,
420*). It is, however, regarded as a "life medicine."
Perhaps it is a psychoactive chewing gum.
