Description

Several species of lobelia have been used for medicinal purposes. Lobelia inflata (also known as Indian tobacco, Pukeweed, and Vomit wort) was and still is used for many purposes, including as a nervine relaxant, emetic, sweat inducer, diuretic, and expectorant. Lobelia plants share some characteristics with tobacco plants (Nicotiana) and have been used in smoking cessation regimens. Big blue lobelia was named L. siphilitica in the mistaken belief that it was an effective treatment for venereal disease. The Asian lobelia L. chinensis is one of the fundamental herbs in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
