CS (Herba Linch)

Joined 7 years ago from Deep Asia




Also follow me on:

Herba Linch (Cannabis Thorp) is about HERBS, PLANTS, AND AGRICULTURE. Featured are Asian and Philippine herbal plants and other plants in deeper Asia used as alternative remedies for wellness, health, healing, and other uses.

It also features backyard gardening in Manila, Philippine agriculture, and organic farming.

In many parts of the Philippines, some local vegetables and fruits are used for treating illnesses and are thus termed "herbal" medicine by local folks. So don't be surprised if ordinary vegetables and fruits are discussed here as "herbal."

ORGANIC FARMING. And Herba Linch would also like to contribute to organic farming technology applicable to Philippine farming.

Where's "Deep" Asia?

Some folks ask me where Deep Asia is. If you're in Asia while pondering on life deeply, that's Deep Asia.

    7 years ago

    Most Asian and Philippine Herbs are medicinal, specifically antibacterial. Like Thai Basil. Eat it often and be spared from common types of bacteria. Juicing it is better—you take in great quantities in just one...
