CALUMET CITY, Ill. (Mar. 2, 2016)– A mother of a 22-year-old is warning other parents to beware of a deadly seed from an Asian plant called the “suicide tree.”

Two weeks ago, Natosha Anderson found Bernard McCalip, 22, on the bathroom floor after being sick for hours, WLS-TV reports.

“He said, ‘I can’t feel my heart.’ And I said, ‘What’s wrong? What’s going on?’ And he said, ‘I took a pong seed.’ And I said, ‘A what? What is that?’” Anderson told WLS-TV. “The police, the paramedics, they didn’t even know, no one knew.”

McCalip later died at Franciscan St. Margaret Hospital in Hammond, Indiana, according to WLS-TV.

“I’m pretty sure he thought it was going to be easy, but it wasn’t. He died in pain. It was slow, and it was painful,” Anderson told WLS-TV.

Police found evidence that the seeds were ordered online and delivered from Thailand. McCalip paid $1 plus $4 in shipping for the seeds, according to the report.

“I can go online and purchase something for $5 — $5 and that can literally devastate a family and kill someone. I don’t understand,” Anderson told WLS-TV.

McCalip’s father said, “All I can do is sit back and ask myself, ‘Is there more I could’ve done?’”

McCalip was transgender and “struggling with desire to live life as a woman,” Anderson said. The victim tried changing their name to Lucia and was bullied for many years in school, but Anderson said she wasn’t aware of any suicidal thoughts by her child, WLS-TV reports.

About 42 percent of transgender women attempt suicide in their life, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The seed McCalip ingested comes from the Cerbera odollam plant, commonly known as the “suicide tree” or “pong-pong.” It is listed under the FDA’s poisonous plant database. The seeds contain cerberin, a poison that stops the heart’s ability to function.

“I don’t want my son to die in vain,” Anderson told WLS-TV. “If I can save one life, just one.”

Suicide Girl

Suicide Girl by Calyx Gardens is the cleverly named cross of Poison OG and Platinum GSC (f.k.a Girl Scout Cookies). This beautiful and potent cannabis strain delivers hearty mid-level sedation in the body and a sizzling mental buzz that carries the consumer forward. The flavor and aroma are rich with fuel, fruit, and spices like star anise and pepper. Utilize Suicide Girl to combat anxiety, depression, and minor pain.

Critical Plus 2.0

Critical Plus 2.0 is the double-deep cross of the award-winning Dinafem Seeds original, Critical Plus. Known for its speedy flowering time and zesty lemon aroma, Critical Plus 2.0 is a great option for first-time gardeners looking for a deeply relaxing buzz and a healthy yield. It exhibits exceptionally pungent notes of lemon, incense, and exotic wood. Dinafem recommends using a strong carbon filter during flowering as the aroma of the maturing buds is robust. Critical Plus 2.0 lends itself to deep relaxation and stress relief.

Big Kush

Big Kush by Dinafem Seeds is a love letter to growers and Kush connoisseurs alike. By combining the generous genetics of Big Skunk with the ever-popular OG Kush, Dinafem has fashioned a strain that exhibits the balanced and flavorful attributes of OG Kush with the fuel-tinged lemon aroma and yield of their Big Bud/Skunk cross. This autoflowering strain finishes in 8 weeks and requires little manicuring due to the conservative number of fan leaves.

Citrus Sunshine Haze

Citrus Sunshine Haze by Cereal Killer Genetics is, as they describe it, “sunshine in a bag.” It was created by crossing Super Lemon Haze and Kosher Tangie #2. This genetic combination yields three distinct phenotypes ranging from 75/25 sativa-dominant to an even 50/50 split. All phenotypes share a magnificent citrus aroma that runs the gamut from lemon and lime candy, orange, and tangerine with a hint of herbaceous spice. With an average THC content of 28%, Citrus Sunshine Haze is not for the unseasoned consumer. This strain is a quality option when looking to combat depression, laziness, and mild pain while remaining upbeat.

Santa Sativa

Santa Sativa by Dinafem Seeds is 70/30 sativa-dominant strain with a complex aroma. Reeking of lemons, cedar, pine, and incense, Santa Sativa delivers an elevated terpene profile consumers will fawn over. These unique terpenes are created from the combination of Haze #1 and a Skunk/Northern Lights cross, blending an uplifting buzz with mellow euphoria that lingers between the ears. Santa Sativa grows long, dense jade green buds that finish flowering in about 10 weeks.

Dinachem

Dinachem by Dinafem Seeds is an especially potent cross of Guava Chem and the Original Chemdawg 91 from Chemdog’s own genetics. This strain enhances and preserves the potency and quality of Chemdog’s original strain while infusing fruit and floral nuances into the oily, woody aroma inherent to the strain. With natural pest and moisture resistance, Dinachem offers novice growers a hearty piece of cannabis history with a large yield and an average THC content of 18-23%. Dinachem won 1st prize for “Best Indica” at Cannazores Cup in 2016 and 2nd prize for “Best Indica” at IC420 Growers Cup in 2015.

Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning is a horticultural homage to Denver’s former quarterback of the same name. The strain Peyton Manning, a powerful blend of SFV OG and Chemdawg 91, was released in September 2013 before the beginning of the new football season. Known for its high THC content and long-lasting effects, Peyton Manning is not for the novice cannabis consumer. Anticipate a heady rush brought on by this THC-rich flower that melds into the body as the headiness fades. The buzz is giggly and euphoric with a calming warmth on the limbs, but consume too much and the potential for paranoia increases. Enjoy Peyton Manning to boost creativity, nullify stress, and elevate the mood.
