Does anyone know were one might look for spotted water hemlock in BC, Canada? Trying to narrow it down so I can try and aquire some, but the internet and its many distribution maps won't tell me any specifics.

Well, I'm sure you already know this, but wash your hands after handling if you find some. Poison and all.

 

I wouldn't know where to find it in your area, but it thrives in shallow water and marshy, swampy places.

 

If I may ask, why are you searching for water hemlock? 🙂

I already know about the poison part, almost guaranteed lethality, but that is not why I need it, it is for a recipe, nothing sinister, its for a project I'm working on.

Oh, okay. Like a magical working or a scientific project? Thing is, I don't think you're going to have much luck with finding the exact location of something like this online, and you'll get funny looks for asking about it. It's just something you have to go out and find.

But is it worth the risk? Not only is hemlock extraordinarily dangerous, but something could happen to you while you're out trying to find it, if you go alone. Why wander around damp cold places, possibly for hours, just to get something that will almost certainly make you violently ill unless you take utmost care?

I'm not an expert on botany, but I wanted to be when I was younger, and I imagine that most park rangers and other professionals would advise against it. This isn't for school, is it? I'd be very surprised if they told you to collect that.

Safety isn't too much of an issue, I'm a bit of a poison artist, so I know how to handle it, and I am not going searching alone. It is sort of herbalism project, not magical, more like poison crafting. My family hunts for food, which is uncommon I know, but I hate the idea that if an attempt fails it could leave an animal in pain and suffering, so I am making something to ensure that can't happen. Its not the only dangerous ingredient, but its the last one I need.

That's not so uncommon…plenty of people hunt. 🙂 I never have, being vegetarian, but I can see what you're trying to do now. Sorry I can't be of any more help.

You were a great help, even without exact locations, you still said were to look, thank you.
