Description: Sweet Flag is a strongly aromatic plant with sword shaped leaves. It grows in marshland and along riverbanks in North America, Asia and Europe. The roots are harvested in spring and late autumn, washed and, after removing the hair-roots, dried at a low temperature before being ground to a powder. Sweet Flag will last longer if kept in the fridge.

Ethnobotanical History: Sweet Flag is used as a herbal remedy by First Nation American tribes in small doses to fight pain and fatigue, as well as for oral hygiene. In large doses it may have been used as a visionary aid. The Cree claim to take Sweet flag enables them to travel great distances without touching the ground.

Usage: A small dose (2-3 tsp) of Sweet flag is energizing, clears the mind and has a mild mood enhancing effect. In higher dosages (4-5 tsp) it may act as an entheogen. When combined with cannabis (either sprinkle some powder in a spliff or chew a small piece of root), calamus root may prevent dry mucous membranes, scattered thinking, and anxiety. It was used in Ayurvedic medicine as an antidote to excess cannabis dose.

Active Constituents: Essential oils.
