Description

Datura stramonium, known by the common names Jimson weed or Devil's snare, is a plant in the nightshade family. It is believed to have originated in Mexico, but has now become naturalized in many other regions. Other common names for D. stramonium include thornapple and moon flower, hell's bells, devil’s trumpet, devil’s weed, tolguacha, Jamestown weed, stinkweed, locoweed, pricklyburr, and devil’s cucumber. Datura stramonium generally flowers throughout the summer. The fragrant flowers are trumpet-shaped, white to creamy or violet, and 6 to 9 cm (2 1⁄2–3 1⁄2 in) long open at night, emitting a pleasant fragrance, and are fed upon by nocturnal moths. The egg-shaped seed capsule is 3 to 8 cm (1–3 in) in diameter and either covered with spines. During maturation capsule cracks, one capsule contains from 500 to 800 pieces, all plant has 25-45 thousand seeds. Datura intoxication typically produces delirium, tachycardia, bizarre behavior, photophobia. The onset of symptoms generally occurs around 30 to 60 minutes after ingesting the herb, lasts from 24 to 48 hours, in some cases as long as two weeks and can lead to irreversible mental disorders and even to death. Datura has been used in traditional medicine to relieve asthma symptoms and as an analgesic during surgery.

Растение родом из Мексики, но сейчас натурализовано во многих других регионах. На русском языке растение имеет множество названий: дурман вонючий, дивдерево, дуропьян, дурье зелье, одурь-трава, шальная трава, колючие яблоки, бадура, бодяк, дурнишник. Одиночные крупные белые цветы издают сильный дурманящий запах. Плод - коробочка, покрытая шипами. Во время созревания коробочка растрескивается. В одной коробочке созревает от 500 до 800 штук, на одном растении 25-45 тысяч. Русское название растению дала отравляющая доза дурмана, вызывающая бред, фантастические галлюцинации, получившие в народе название «одурманивание». При отравлении этим растением наступают нервное возбуждение, делирий (психическое расстройство с нарушением сознания), тахикардия, странное поведение, светобоязнь. Начало симптомов наблюдается через 30-60 минут после приема травы, длятся они от 24 до 48 часов, иногда до двух недель, и могут привести к необратимым нарушениям психики и даже к смерти. Для лечебных целей используют главным образом листья дурмана, выпускают препараты для лечения бронхиальной астмы и заболеваний дыхательных путей, сопровождающихся спазмом мышц бронхов.
