Canavalia Maritima is commonly known as Bay Bean and belongs to the Fabaceae plant family. This beautiful pink flowered plant grows best under subtropical and tropical climate-conditions. Like many other tropical-plants, this plant prefers an area with a lot of sunshine and slightly humid floor. It even inhabits difficult terrains located at beaches, coasts and cliffs. For that reason the Canavalia Maritima is also known as Bay Bean, Beach Bean or Coastal-Jack-Bean.
In early mankind even some societies enshrined this plant and used it at burial ceremonies of their beloved. Intact seeds have been found in many graves around Oaxaca and Yucatan Mexico and Peru dated back to 300 B.C. Today Canavalia Maritima is very popular by the inhabitants of the Gulf Coast to Mexico. It is reported that the psychoactive substances are quite similar to hemp and is often used as substitute.
Scientists found out that the Canavalia Maritima plant contains an active compound called L-Betonicine. Unfortunately there are currently no surveys or evidences that especially this substance is causing the hallucinogen properties of the Bay Bean.
