Uses & Effectiveness

Overview

Laburnum is a small tree that grows in areas of Europe. The seed is used to make medicine.

People take laburnum to cause vomiting and for constipation, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses. Laburnum is also unsafe when taken by mouth. All parts of the plant are poisonous.

Be careful not to confuse laburnum and labdanum. They are different plants.

Laburnum trees are known for their beautiful golden-yellow flowers, but did you know that they contain a compound called cytisine? Cytisine acts as a nicotinic receptor agonist and has similar effects to nicotine, making laburnum seeds toxic if ingested in large amounts.
