Scullcap (Often spelled skullcap incorrectly) is well-known among the Cherokee and other Native American tribes as a strong emmenagogue and medicinal herb. We carry the coveted Mad Dog Desert Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), which is a sedative and excellent as a treatment for nervous disorders and insomnia.

It contains scutellarine and can cause giddiness if large amounts are ingested, and should never be combined with any other sedatives. It is reportedly an incredibly useful aid for quieting the mind for meditation.

This Scullcap (Skullcap) is often a favorite addition to herbal smoking blends. We do not offer this Mad Dog Desert Scullcap (Skullcap) for this purpose, we only offer it as an informational addition to the description of this particular herbal product.

Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora) is native to North America, but is now widely cultivated in Europe and other areas of the world. It has been used for over two hundred years as a mild relaxant and has long been hailed as an effective therapy for anxiety, nervous tension, and convulsions. Because of its calming effects on the nervous and musculoskeletal system, it was also at one time considered to be a remedy for rabies, thus it's name "mad dog weed."

Scutellaria lateriflora is one species of skullcap that is used in herbal preparations. The plant derives its name from the caplike appearance of the outer whorl of its small blue flowers. Skullcap is a slender, heavily branched plant that grows to a height of two to four feet and blooms each July.

A closely related herb, Chinese skullcap (Scuterllaria baicalensis) has actually been the subject of a number of studies, including those on animals and people. It has anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, and antihistamine properties, which can help treat allergies such as hay fever (called allergic rhinitis), particularly when used with other herbs, including stinging nettle.
