Cascara Sagrarda Bark;**  Rhomnus Purshiana

 Constipation, Gall Bladder,

Cascara Sagrada is the commercial name for Rhomnus Purshiana. It is also known by the common names of cascara and bearberry, and is actually a species of buckthorn. Cascara Sagrada, meaning "Sacred Bark" in Spanish, has actually been used for 100s of years by Native Americans of the Pacific region medicinally as a laxative. In this, it is always dried as a powder with the fresh bark often providing more drastic results that one might desire.

Modern herbalists still prescribe Cascara Sagrada as a laxative, and it can be found in many pharmacies. Up until recently, it was still widely used in over the counter, commercial laxatives though of late it has been discontinued in favor of gentler options. This is due to the fact that side effects of Cascara Sagrada may include cramping or abdominal pain, and diarrhea, if this happes you have used to much.

 American folk lore tells us that good luck in legal matters can be brought about if one wears a mojo bag filled with cascara sagrada and chews on a root of galangal, spitting the juice on the court room floor.
