What Is PokeWeed From what I've studied, PokeWeed is perennial Plant/Herb. PokeWeed is native to North America and now is all around the world. From what I've heard it can grow to the hight of ten feet or higher during the Summer and died back to the Root each Winter. The Berries and Dried roots are used in herbal remedies. The PokeWeed Herb is used for so much. It is a very effective Herb but at the same time it's very dangerous especially if you have children. PokeWeed has a speicifc amount of Protein in it, the proper word to call it is pokeweed antiviral protein, I think that is why its such an effective herb to use( health conditions). I believe it can be used for many things for example, ease the pain of Arthritis, but sadly enough no body has found a cure for it yet. I would have to say that most of it is poisonous but not all. The pokeweed plant contain active substances such as phytolaccine. The Roots of are mostly toxic.
