Dagga Plant, also known as Wild Dagga Plant is a small plant and one of the ingredients for the cure of Eel Pox.


Dagga Plant, as it appears in the Franchise, is a small plant with light purple leaves, no flowers, and no green parts. It is found growing on cliffs on Healer's Island.

In reality, Dagga (Leonotis leonurus) is a tall plant with dark green leaves and tubular orange flowers in tiered whorls. It grows in bushes and is a plant species in the Mint Family (Lamiaceae). It is native to South Africa, where it is very common.


Dagga Plant is mainly used as an ingredient for a cure for Eel Pox.

In reality, the infusions made from flowers and seeds, leaves or stems are widely used to treat tuberculosis, jaundice, muscle crampshigh blood pressure, diabetesviral hepatitis, dysentery, and diarrhea. The leaves, roots, and bark are used as an emetic for snakebites, bee and scorpion stings. It is also known for its mild psychoactive properties.

While searching for the ingredients for the cure for Eel Pox in "The Eel Effect", Tuffnut climbs a sea stack on which grow some Dagga Plants. However, Ruffnut, already on top, throws rocks on his face while Barf and Belch look at the scene with a Dagga Plant in Belch's mouth.

Later in the episode, Hiccup and Fishlegs make a cure for Toothless, in which they include the Dagga Plant.



  • The real Dagga Plant is native to South Africa and Australia, so it was unlikely to find it in Northern Europe during the Viking Age.
