I only experienced the stupor, hallucinations and partial paralysis after making a cup of tea on a camping trip . A friend who makes root beer gave me a bottle of extract to try in a pale ale but I can't make myself do it.When I was a kid living in central Kentucky, maybe 1965 or so, I pulled up a huge sassafras root by the side of the road. A couple years ago, almost 50 years later, I put some of this, which is pretty much petrified at his point, into a club project beer. It is cool that the aroma still comes through.
You might not want to drink that. Google "toxicity of sassafras"
Of course it's too late now, but I knew of the counter-indications. There was no vomiting, stupor, lowering of body temperature, exhaustion, tachycardia, spasm, hallucinations, paralysis and collapse.
Last year an employee was going to fix my sprinkler system so my hops would be watered while I was on vacation. He came over, saw my daughter watering plants and decided it didn't need to work if she was going to water them, but she only did it once and when I got back from a 3 week vacation in July they were pretty much toast. He will be here this weekend and I won't let him leave until it all works.My Cascades have started poking out of the ground. It's kind of late for us down here, and I was worried they wouldn't even come back at all because of their poor health last year. 3 years of sever drought has taken it's toll, I even have cacti dying. But they are back and looking good.
I keep hearing folks talk about how their plants aren't doing well due to the drought... don't you folks have plumbing and hoses?!
