Sweet Canes - The canes also produce a sweet sap that people chew on and it's similar to sugar cane.

Leaves and Stems - The young leaves and stems make a very healing tea.

Edible Shoots - The young leafy shoots can be cooked and eaten as a veggie and used in all kinds of dishes.

Health Tonic - Take one cup of the roots and boil them in one liter of water for 20 minutes and this makes a refreshing tonic for the whole body. Drink 1 to 3 cups daily.

Heals Stomachaches and Diarrhea - Taking the canes cut them up and place them in water overnight in the frig. This makes a wonderful drink that soothes away stomachaches and heals diarrhea. Having some in the frig all the time is a good idea.

Forms - So far no one is making dried powder from this plant and selling it... only the fresh plant can be found in certain areas of the world.

This might be a good business opportunity for someone wanting to help society, help those who are ill, and makes some money at the same time by producing whip vine powder commercially. I am amazed no one is selling the powder commercially.

No Side Effects - There are no side effect to using whip vine. But as always those who are pregnant, nursing, and small children should not take whip vine.
