MEDIC­I­NAL MOSS

Liver­wort, a type of moss, may have sim­i­lar ben­e­fi­cial ef­fects to cannabis for treat­ing cramps, dizzi­ness and loss of ap­petite but with a less po­tent psy­choac­tive ef­fect, ac­cord­ing to a study at the Uni­ver­sity of Bern. The ben­e­fits are due to per­rot­tetinene, a sub­stance found in liver­wort that is chem­i­cally sim­i­lar to THC – the main psy­choac­tive el­e­ment of cannabis.
