In Hawaii, the Mimosa plant, also known as the “Hawaiian Medicinal plant,” has been used medicinally since the early 1900s.
As the name implies, it is a medicinal plant that contains a compound that, when ingested, produces a calming effect.
There are several species of Mimosas, including the native Hawaiian variety known as kapapuna, the green variety, and the red variety, known as ma’a.
While most people are familiar with the ma’as, there are several varieties of Mimosa, including many varieties that are used as medicinal plants.
There is also the native Hawaiian variety called maihala, which is known for its healing qualities.
