: There are many varieties of mustard, and each has different medicinal properties. Black mustard was once the most widely used to make the condiment known as mustard before being replaced with the more mechanical harvester friendly brown mustard. It is possible that one or both of these varieties exist on Pern. Black mustard seeds stimulate circulation, treat bronchitis, give a warming footbath, and in a poultice they reduce inflammation. Treats chilblains and rheumatism. Oil is a lubricant. In China, brown mustard seeds are used to treat colds, stomach problems, abscesses, rheumatism, lumbago, and ulcers. The leaves treat bladder inflammation. 1 tablespoon of crushed seed in warm water induces vomiting. Young leaves can be added to salad.

Uses: needles used as syringe for injections and to draw blood.
Misc.: Needlethorn is omnivorous and shoots its thorns at anything that disturbs it during its growing season. It falls into a dormant stage when the flowers of the ging tree (ginkgo?) open. These plants are always found together. The spines are poisonous through spring and summer. ''The vine grows during the winter and has to shed its old corona or leave too many unprotected gaps. I understand the flesh is tasty.''''During the spring and summer the bush has an odor to attract snakes and insects. The hollow spines suck essential juices from the creature the plant impales, and also rainwater.''(Moreta) Needlethorns are also used for transfusions. (Masterharper)
