      Hello Chappsy,

      Welcome to the group. I am still new and do not speak very much.

      I have been studying plants & herbs for medical use & food since 1992.

      I hold a Masters Degree in Alternative Medicine. I can not afford to continue to go to school for my PhD. But I still continue doing research and experiments here at my home in the USA.

            This plant is native to the Kalahari Desert in S Africa. The Kalahari
            Bushmen have used it for 100,000 years to suppress their appetites while on
            hunting trips in that vast and unforgiving countryside.

            You could try specialist botanical collections such as Kew Gardens, London,
            or some of the co-operatives in Namibia and South Africa who are growing
            Hoodia Gordoni commercially for weight-loss.

            After a legal battle the Bushmen finally won the international legal right
            to develop the product of this plant, as it was in fact their ancestral
            knowledge which was the basis for modern commercial interest, so they not
            only identified the plant, but they also knew what part of the plant to use
            and what to do with it.

            This followed about 30 years¹ wait while a big pharmaceutical company tried
            to synthesise the active ingredient but failed to do it, so the licence for
            development was effectively Œreturned¹. The SA government was going to
            just let anyone grow the stuff but a sharp civil rights lawyer fought for
            the rights of the Kalarhari Bushmen to be recognised, which is the present
            situation.

            The various websites which explain this interesting story also say that
            though other countries (India, China, some in South America) are trying to
            emulate the Bushmen¹s horticultural projects, the product is not the same,
            and they make the comparison with oranges which taste completely different
            when grown in different places. Presumably the efficacy of the plant also
            varies depending on where it is grown.

            With so much obesity in the so-called developed world, this is obviously a
            very valuable plant.
