Jimsonweed (Datura stramonium), also known by the English name Devil's Snare, is a plant in the nightshade family (Solanaceae).
The plant is probably native to Central America, but it has been introduced to many parts of the world regions.
The active agent in Jimsonweed is atropine which has been used in traditional medicine over centuries. Atropine is a tropane alkaloid which has hallucinogenic properties and may be severely toxic.
The original botanical illustration was first published in "The Flora Homoeopathica: or, illustrations and descriptions of the medicinal plants used as homoeopathic remedies" by Edward Hamilton (1824-1899).
Edward Hamilton was a British orthodox physician who converted to homeopathy to become Physician to the London Homeopathic Hospital.
