Plant Medicinal

In general application, herbs are any plants used for meal, stuffing, drug, or fragrances for their pleasant or aromatic properties. Culinary application typically distinguishes herbs from spices. Herbs refers to the leafy green or flowering parts of a plant (either fresh or dried), while spices are provided from other parts of the plant (usually dried), including arils, berries, barks, roots and fruits. Some plants include phytochemicals that have effects on the body. There may be some effects when consumed in the small levels that typify culinary "spicing", and some herbs are toxic in larger quantities. For example, some types of herbal extract, such as the extract of kava can be applied for medical purposes to lower depression and stress. However, large amounts of these herbs may lead to toxic overload that may involve complications, some of a serious nature, and should be applied with caution.Certain herbs include psychoactive attributes that have been applied for both religious and recreational purposes by humans since the early Holocene era, notably the leaves and extracts of the cannabis and coca plants.
