Canavalia maritima is another curious potential entheogen.
There are many stories around this plant, it was considered important
and sacred enough to be placed in graves in and around the area by
the Mazatecs and other tribal groups.
Dried leaves have been used as entheogen, a component to some
ancient rituals. In ancient Peru, the fruit and leaves had ritual and
magical use. In South America and Gulf Coast of Mexico, beans of C.
maritima are ingested or smoked with the dried leaves as marijuana.
