 The extract of the wood (and also the roots) of Acokanthera schimperi with boiling water (until thickness) is known as the classic hunting poison of East Africa. Many murder cases with this arrow poison are known, especially in Kenia, even in the last decades. Not only ingestion but also absorption through the skin may be seriously toxic to humans. The wood of the Arrow Poison Tree is now a major commercial source of ouabain, which is the main alkaloid. Ouabain shows digitalis-like activity and was first isolated from the roots of the tree by Arnaud in 1882. All parts of Acokanthera schimperi, excluding the ripe fruits, are quite toxic. Although the seeds are not used to make the arrow poison, they contain much more of the toxic alkaloids ouabain and acovenoside A than wood or roots. [Afrikanische Arzneipflanzen und Jagdgifte.
