cida cordifolia

What is cida cordifolia? thanks

Sida cordifolia, also known as country mallow, is an herb that is considered a “cousin plant” to ephedra. It isn’t considered the same thing but it converts (or supposedly anyway) to ephedrine once it’s in your system. When Nebraska outlawed ephedrine/ma huang, we sold products with sida cordifolia as an alternative. Most of the people who tried them seemed to like them, but now that we have ma huang back, many are going back to using this.
