Each of these plants offer many uses and benefits in terms of fiber, but they also possess different benefits and dangers independently. For example, Apocynumn cannabinum is largely poisonus (“aopcynumn” means “poisonous to dogs”), but Cannabis indica is species of marijuana. Plant slang and colloquialisms vary greatly by generation and region, so it’s very important to know what specific plant you’re referring to when foraging and using natural herbal remedies. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp wavess 0 Questions 234 Answers 0 Best Answers 495 Points View Profile wavess 2020-05-02T19:11:16-04:00Added an answer on May 2, 2020 at 7:11 pm Indian hemp, also known as “hemp dogbane,” is a North American plant of the dogbane family.
