I was wondering what are the different species of Jamaican weeds you have in Jamaica. Can you please give me their scientific name as well as their common name?
May 22, 2008
We have oh so many of them. I have requested some detailed information for you from the RADA office- that should include the scientific names et al. As soon as I get it I will forward it on to you personally.
Many of them, by the way are medicinal.
You will learn of weeds such as
- Wild Ginger
- Red Bush
- Behamia Grass
It grows in clusters
- bitter bush
- Spanish Needle
Good for fever and stomach aches. Also used to feed rabbits
- Ganja (Marijuana)
- King of the forest
- Black Sage
Good for diabetes
- ...and lots more!
