Spotted hemlock is a biennial herbaceous plant with an unpleasant mouse smell.
A biennial herbaceous plant with a high stem (60-180 cm). Very poisonous plant, has an unpleasant mouse smell. The root is powerful, fusiform, whitish. The stem is glabrous, branched, thinly furrowed, hollow, with a bluish coating and reddish-brown spots. The leaves (lower) are petiolate, broadly triangular, thrice pinnate, rather large (30-60 cm long), the middle and upper ones are smaller, with a very short petiole – almost sessile, with narrow sheaths, their final lobes are pinnately incised or separate. The flowers are small, almost white, collected in complex umbrellas, forming a corymbose-paniculate inflorescence. The perianth is double, 5-membered. There are also 5 stamens, alternating with petals. Pistil with lower dihedral ovary. The fruit is a two-seeded plant that splits into two fruits (mericarpy). Secretory tubules are absent in mature fruits. Blooms in May-June.
In Russia, it is found almost throughout the European part (except for the Far North), in the Caucasus, and in Western Siberia. It grows on forest edges, water meadows, limestone slopes, as a weed in crops and vegetable gardens, on deposits and vacant lots, near housing, near roads and fences, in landfills, on the slopes of ravines, along railways.
For medicinal purposes, the herb (stems, leaves, flowers) of the spotted hemlock is usually used. Raw materials are harvested during flowering and the beginning of seed formation (June-July). The leaves and stem are collected during flowering, the unripe seeds are plucked along with the umbrellas. Dry the grass in the shade under a canopy or in dryers at a temperature of up to 40°C. Seeds in umbrellas are also dried, then the seeds are carefully separated from the umbrellas, they easily fall out when drying. Since all parts of the plant are highly poisonous, it is necessary to strictly observe the safety rules when collecting. It is strictly forbidden to taste the plant and allow children to collect raw materials. Hemlock is a strong ephyronos, its unpleasant mouse smell causes a severe headache, so when collecting inflorescences, the plant should be approached from the wind. Dried raw materials are stored in bags, separately, in well-ventilated, dry rooms.
