Well, it kinda depends on your point of view. For those of us that tend to avoid marijuana and the legal implications it brings, the plant growing low in your lawn, with that classic 70’s design, is not mind altering Cannabis. That’s the good news. For those of you that tend to gravitate towards marijuana and strive to duck the implications it brings, the plant growing low in your lawn, with that classic 70’s design, is not mind altering Cannabis. That’s the bad news.
“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” – William Shakespeare
That’s a fitting quote, one, because it earns me points with my wife, two, because what you actually have is Cinquefoil of the Rose Family. If you let it go to bloom you will see pretty little rose flowers.
There is some more good new though. During medieval times, the plant was used to drive away the Devil, so that can’t be all bad. The fruit is edible and the plant can be used as a poultice to help heal wounds. The leaves aren’t poisonous, but not overly palatable. There are some writings that claim a tea can help with diarrhea. For those of you who think you hit the jack-pot and smoke it. You should be fine. For those of you who do and get high, the power of suggestion can do some amazing things. Lol. I don’t recommend trying it as I have not studied its possible hazards, but it won’t get you high…again…the bad news.
