The Yerba Santa Leaves & Tops ( Eriodictyon californicum and other related species) is the first monograph of its kind for yerba santa . While its ethnobotanical history has been somewhat reported and its chemistry sporadically studied for more than 100 years there has never been a comprehensive review of the chemical and pharmacological potential of the genus until now. As noted by Dr. Christopher Hobbs, co-author of the Therapeutic Compendium;
"...this will obviously be the definitive source for all aspects of this important native medicine for decades to come. Incredible offering to the entire herbal community, clinicians and beyond.” — Chris Hobbs PhD, LAc, Institute for Natural Products Research, Davis, CA
This monograph has stimulated research into the chemistry of the genus that will continue beyond this publication and will also contribute to a number of scientific publications in the near future.
