Abstract

Datura stramonium Linn is one of the widely well known folklore medicinal herb. It is a wild growing flowering plant and was investigated as a local source for tropane alkaloids which contain a methylated nitrogen atom (N-CH3) and include the anti-cholinergic drugs atropine, and scopolamine. Some sources report a probable Central American origin, due to Datura's habitation of most temperate and subtropical parts of the world. This plant has contributed various pharmacological actions in the scientific field of Indian systems of medicines. The present paper will give exclusive information on the chemical constituents and mainly psychopharmacological activities of this plant.
