Its mammoth seeds, which can each weigh in excess of an ounce, grow in long pods that are matched in immensity. Entada Rheedii is frequently found near water and on beaches as part of a unique cycle of dispersal. Given the location of the plants, falling entada rheedii seeds easily make their way to water. These African dream herb seeds are designed with hard, impermeable coats that allow them to float for long periods of time in the corrosive sea water. Entade rheedii seeds are known to float extreme distances until they wash up on distant shores where they will germinate and form new populations of plants. As a testament to the effectiveness of this process, entada rheedii is known to inhabit shores in tropical Africa, India, Asia and even Australia. Natives consider the seeds to provide good luck, and so they are often carried. Additionally, entada seeds are used to make jewelry and can be made into a topical ointment to treat jaundice. The smoked leaves, and even the seeds according to some sources, is said to increase dream activity much like calea zacatechichi and silene capensis. Communication with ancestors through dream states is an important traditional African practice, making these seeds especially significant in the context of their culture
