Description

Humulus lupulus (common hop or hop) is a species of flowering plant in the Cannabaceae family, native to Europe, western Asia and North America.  It is a dioecious, perennial, herbaceous climbing plant which sends up new shoots in early spring and dies back to a cold-hardy rhizome in autumn.

Hops are described as bine plants rather than vine because, unlike vines, they have stiff downward facing hairs that provide stability and allow them to climb. These shoots allow H. lupulus to grow anywhere from 4.6 to 6.1 metres (15 to 20 ft). Hops have fragrant, wind-pollinated flowers that attract butterflies.

The female cone shaped fruits from H. lupulus are used by breweries to preserve and flavor beer, and so H. lupulus is widely cultivated for use by the brewing industry. The fragrant flower cones, known as hops, impart a bitter flavor, and also have preservative qualities. H. lupulus contains myrcene, humulene, xanthohumol, myrcenol, linalool, tannins, and resin.

 

Medicinal Action and Uses

Analgesic - Hops teas are also used to relieve the pain of bladder infections and give prompt ease to an irritable bladder.

Anti-cancer - Hops has been noted to help to prevent the formation of new blood vessels, useful as an herbal anti-cancer agent, preventing different cancer types from starting, growing, or spreading.

Bitter - contains humulone and lupulone, noted for its anti-bacterial qualities which stimulate gastric juice production aiding in the digestion of food.

Emmenagogue - This plant has been used for menstrual difficulties for over 2500 years, with its earliest uses documented during early Roman and Greek history.

Nervine - Hops can be combined with other herbs in anti-anxiety formulas that can be beneficial for sleeplessness and nervousness.

Sedetive - historically hops have been used for their sedative effects on the central nervous system due to its methyl-butenol content as a treatment for stress, anxiety, and insomnia.
