Like all herbs, there are some contraindications to angico's consumption. Infants and pregnant are the main people who should not consume because the plant ends up being toxic in these cases. Consuming too much is a mistake, as it can cause lesions in the nasal septum and mucous membranes of the mouth. Dried leaves and seeds have a hallucinogenic effect, which can be quite dangerous. If you have such a plant on the farm, it is best to keep it well away from cattle, as the leaves are toxic to these animals.
