        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.
