Lagochilus inebrians

Lagochilus inebrians, commonly known as inebriating mint, intoxicating mint or Turkistan mint, is a member of the mint family Labiatae. This species is reported to produce intoxicating and sedative effects due to its content of lagochiline. It is used as such by Tajik, Tatar, Turkoman, and Uzbek tribesman during feasts and holidays. It is traditionally consumed as a tea. It is little known outside of its home country of Uzbekistan, though there is some budding interest on the part of entheogenic-minded Westerners.
