Argyreia nervosa is a perennial climbing vine; although it has been regarded as being invasive, it certainly is a beautiful plant to behold. It is believed to be native to India, and now can be found growing in other areas such as Hawaii, Africa and the Caribbean. Interestingly, this plant in particular has little known use as a traditional medicine, whereas its cousin plant, Rivea corymbosa (ololuihqui) and Ipomoea tricolor (tlitlitzin) do. The chemical constituents of these three species are very similar, however the A. nervosa contains the highest concentrations of the special compounds. Traditionally, the cousin seeds were used in rituals in Central America for thousands of years. Ololuihqui, very similar in action to A. nervosa, has been used traditionally to induce a state of consciousness, including colorful spiritual visions, euphoria, extreme relaxation, deep sleep and spiritual awareness as well as heightened body sensation.
Ergine 50% present in the seeds is said to alter ones perception of sound and sight, generally speaking, by intensifying their perception. A. nervosa has also been used in Ayurvedic medicine and is still used today. Combined with ghee (clarified butter), A. nervosa is used to treat joint inflammation, and rheumatism. The whole plant is said to have antiseptic qualities.
In the proper environment, the vine can reach a height of 10 meters. It has large trumpet shaped leaves with velvet-like hairs. The flowers themselves are purple in color, fading to a lovely lavender color towards the opening of the flower. The seeds, which contain the nice compund, are furry and are found within the seedpods. Typically there are four to six seeds in each pod.
