King of the forest, carry mi seed, donkey peepee, stinking toe, ganja, leaf of life. These are the names of some of the 40 herbs documented in JA Herbs, all with proven medicinal and other uses. JA Herbs provides a fascinating insight into a small fraction of the hundreds of plant varieties that grow in Jamaica.

Jamaica, an island more associated with tourism and music, has always had a strong tradition of herbal healing, and with increasing interest internationally in ethnobotany and complementary medicine, it is vital that there is research and development of the plant wealth of the island.

There is every chance that you have consumed - or otherwise used a product - that has an extract of the annatto plant, which is one of the main sources of natural colourants in the food and cosmetic industries. Can you believe that a by-product of the shamy darling plant is being developed for use in solar technology? Welcome to the wonderful world of JA Herbs!
