Actonitum napellus, the Queen of poisons. The epithet “Wolfsbane” derives from the Greek Lycoctonum and is thought to indicate the use of its juice to poison arrows or baits used to kill wolves. Unlike many other poisons, aconitine is easily absorbed through the skin from all parts of the plant. With a high enough dose, death is near instantaneous.
