In brief: Possibly DANGEROUS

S cordifolia contains Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) & pseudoephedrine.
Both are stimulants like Cocaine or amphetamine. Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) has been banned in the us because it can cause cardiac or seizure problems. Pseudoephedrine is still sold otc in us but is a major component in the illegal manufacture of methamphetamine. Please consult with your doctor before using the extracts from this dangerous weed.
