Black nightshade is a plant. Originally, black nightshade was called “petit (small) morel” to distinguish it from the more poisonous species, deadly nightshade, that is known as “great morel.” You may hear black nightshade mistakenly referred to as “petty” morel, instead of the correct term, “petit” moral. People use the whole black nightshade plant including leaves, fruit, and root to make medicine.

Despite serious safety concerns, black nightshade has been used for stomach irritation, cramps, spasms, pain, and nervousness.

Some people apply black nightshade directly to the skin for a skin condition called psoriasis, hemorrhoids, and deep skin infections (abscesses). The bruised, fresh leaves are put on the skin to treat swelling (inflammation), burns, and ulcers.

There isn’t enough information to know how black nightshade might work as a medicine.

Insufficient Evidence for:

Stomach irritation.
Cramps.
Spasms.
Pain.
Nervousness.
Hemorrhoids, when applied to the skin.
Skin inflammation, when applied to the skin.
Burns, when applied to the skin.
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of black nightshade for these uses.

Black nightshade is UNSAFE to take by mouth. It contains a toxic chemical called solanin. At lower doses, it can cause nausea, vomiting, headache, and other side effects. At higher doses, it can cause severe poisoning. Signs of poisoning include irregular heartbeat, trouble breathing, dizziness, drowsiness, twitching of the arms and legs, cramps, diarrhea, paralysis, coma, and death.

There isn’t enough information to know whether it is safe to apply black nightshade directly to the skin.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: It’s UNSAFE to take black nightshade if you are pregnant. It might cause birth defects.
