Don’t trip, or maybe trip. The mandrake has a centuries-old history as one of the most powerful plants in witchcraft, sorcery, and herbal medicine. Mandrake contains hallucinogenic and narcotic alkaloids. As a plant reminiscent of a human body, the mandrake is believed to exercise control over the body: it can induce love or conception, good fortune, or wealth and power. Whatever you use it for, use it wisely!
