Wikipedia says it’s used in South African traditional medicine by the Zulus to induce hallucinations for divinatory purposes, and also as a medicine to treat mental illness.

Hallucinations or mental illness. Hmmmm…. let me think about that choice for a bit.

It also gets very interesting red flowers. Check it out someday if you get the chance.
