I’d say morphine is pretty darn effective. And the vast majority if not all of the pharmaceutical morphine is actually extracted from poppies, not synthesized (total synthesis is possible but much more expensive). Actually most morphine extracted gets turned into codeine for pharmaceutical uses, but nevertheless, the morphine that does get put into pills and solutions, is 100% all natural!

Thanks for the reply. That’s amazing. I would have figured it was way cheaper to just synthesize it for some reason.where do they get the plants from? afaik there is none in the u.s.

None in the US, you’re right, it’s theoretically possible but they just don’t give out any licenses for it. Off the top of my head, the UK, Australia and Tasmania, Spain and Holland, although I’m not sure those last two actually produce them for pharmaceutical production.

Modern medicine is often based in remedies found in nature. Aspirin is famously derived from the bark of the willow tree, ginger has excellent anti-nausea properties, vitamin c found in citrus fruits can help your immune system and stave of scurvy, and many more.

Many. Colchicine, for instance, is derived the autumn crocus / meadow saffron. It is used to treat gout attacks, and is extremely effective in many cases, stopping the attack in 24-36 hours. Medical studies tend to focus on optimising the dosing protocol as it is toxic. The “herbal” form of the remedy goes back to ancient Greece
