Other Forms of Clematis VitalbaCelmatis Vitalba
Clematis vitalba is commonly known as Traveler's Joy, or less frequently Old Man's Beard. Clematis vitalba is harvested for the leaves, which are used both fresh and dry. Traveler's Joy grow all over Europe. When the fresh leaves of the plant are cut or crushed a process occurs which turns the glycoside ranunculin into a severely irritating and pungent protoanemonin but this quickly diminishes into anemonine. This process does not happen when the leaves are dried as the ranunculin and the protanemonin are destroyed. Traveler's Joy has been used for males and for migraine headaches.
