Also known as
Voacanga africana is a small tropical African tree that grows to 6m in height. It has leaves that are up to 30 cm in length, and the tree produces yellow or white flowers, which become berries with yellow seeds. The bark and seeds of the tree are used in Ghana as a poison, stimulant, aphrodisiac, and ceremonial intoxicant. These effects are due to the presence of a complex mixture of alkaloids such as voacangine, vocamine, amataine, akuammidine, tabersonine, coronaridine and vobtusine.
