Appearance and Biology
According to Renae Aloran there are four recorded side effects to using ‘Cadroot’
Disturbed or Vivid DreamsCadalla is known to have a sedative effect, hence why it is sometimes used to treat insomnia. However, using Cadroot in a slepping potion can lead to vivid dreams or even nightmares for some individuals. According to Aloran, this is the most common side effect of taking the herb, and as a result she advises against the use of Cadroot for anyone who suffers with frequent nightmares.
Flushing and palpitationsSome people have reported that the herb causes increased heart rate and warm flushing of the skin. This seems ironic for a treatment used to relax an individual and cure insomnia.
Upset StomachThe plant appears to have a laxative effect, which can cause an upset stomach.
Headaches and Memory ProblemsCadalla may cause mental slowness, headaches and an inability to keep still. Increased anxiety can also be an issue though, Aloran argues that this is related to misuse or long-term usage of the herb.
Interaction with alcoholGiven the recreational use of Cad, it should be noted that mixing the herb with other substances which lead to sedative effects, can lead to exhaustion and the exacerbation of existing side effects.
