Entada rheedii, commonly known as the African dream herb or snuff box sea bean, and as the cacoon vine in Jamaica, is a large woody liana or climber.
Their seeds have a thick and durable seed coat which allows them to survive lengthy periods of immersion in seawater.
The species is employed in African traditional medicine to induce vivid dreams, enabling communication with the spirit world.
The inner meat of the seed would be either consumed directly, or the meat would be chopped, dried, mixed with other herbs like tobacco and
smoked just before sleep to induce the desired dreams.
They are popular as good luck charms or for making jewelry. The African Dream Herb seeds are often worn or carried as talismans believed to
confer on its bearer supernatural powers or protection.
Entada rheedii is the scientific name of a species of woody, flowering vine commonly referred to as African dream herb.
It grows to 40 feet in height if left unpruned, producing a twining mass of vines lined with glossy, bluish-green foliage and a summertime display of fuzzy, upright flower clusters.
The flowers mature into 2-foot-long seed pods filled with exceptionally large seeds, which germinate readily to grow new vines.
Growing Entada rheedii presents few challenges since the seeds grow easily once scarified, but the plants will only survive outdoors in U.S. Department of Agriculture hardiness zones 10b to 11.
