Hops. Mmmmm! Beer.

Marty pointed this hops vine out so I made sure I got the picture. Apparently I was thinking about beer and therefore have the weird smile. I know that it is used in making beer, but I don't think it is a wild edible plant.

I have seen this info though..

  • "Hops is an herbal medicine used to treat insomnia (sleeplessness), nerve pain, nervousness, and anxiety"
  • and this...

  • "Hops (Humulus lupulus)
  • Hops are relaxing, sleep-inducing, and antiseptic.

    It is good for general insomnia, especially tension or anxiety-related, or associated with restlessness, indigestion or headaches.

    Hops can be mixed with chamomile in equal parts.

    Use by mouth or in bath."

    Do your own research of course. It's not about the END OF THE WORLD - It's not about surviving a hypothetical PLANE CRASH - It's about the SATISFACTION YOU GET knowing you can take care of yourself and/or your family in ANY SITUATION, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE!
