There are fears children could access LSD style “tripper seeds” from eBay for just £3 a go, a concerned woman claimed.

A 44-year-old woman from Merseyside, who has asked to remain anonymous, said her boyfriend bought the seeds easily on the shopping site , but his reaction was so severe he needed medical attention.

She claims she has flagged up how dangerous the seeds could be to eBay on December 23 and December 29, but said the seeds were still available to buy on the morning of December 30.

A spokesman for eBay said the listing was removed in the afternoon on December 30 and it is taking enforcement action against the seller.

The woman told the ECHO : “You could be getting young children buying it. We’ve said to them [eBay] they need to take it down.

“Anyone could be buying them.”

The 44-year-old said her boyfriend, 45, purchased the seeds online and after taking them he “trashed the flat” and sustained a deep cut on his hand that required medical attention.

She said an ambulance and police had to be called to help.

Speaking to the ECHO, she said the seeds contain LSA (also known as Morning Glory Seeds) and have similar qualities to LSD drugs, which could make people “have a trip”.

The seeds, which fall under the “seeds and bulbs” gardening category of the shopping site cost under just £3.

Ipomoea tricolor, Morning Glory seeds, heavenly blue

Ipomoea tricolor “Heavenly Blue” Morning Glory seeds

Ipomoea tricolor is also referred to as morning glory and Mexican morning glory. It belongs to the Convolvulaceae family and Magnoliopsid genus. It is native to Mexico and Central America but is currently cultivated in other areas.

It is a species of flowering plant and is a perennial that climbs other plants and objects. Those that do not find any support grow along the ground but may choke other plants. The vines and tendrils grow clockwise when climbing a vertical object and grow to a height of 5m. It is fast growing. It has both male and female organs. Morning glory is a dicotyledonous plant. Most morning glory species have notched cotyledons which are either round or sharp. The flowers have a shape like a trumpet and they open in the morning and close in the afternoon; therefore, it has been called morning glory. Every day it produces new flowers that blossoms continually from early summer to early fall. Ipomoea tricolor is very resistant to pests and diseases but attracts humming birds and butterflies. It does not require pruning.

Ipomoea tricolor has herbaceous stem and bears dry, dehiscent fruits that are called capsules. The fruits have black seeds which are covered in tiny hairs. The fruits are egg-shaped. The plant has bisexual flowers which are either blue or purple. Morning glory does cross-pollination and therefore the colours of the flowers fluctuate.

Ipomoea tricolor has both environmental and economic advantages. The seeds of Ipomoea Tricolor have small quantities of hallucinogen that has been extracted and used by medics to treat mental disorders. It has been used in some places as an ornamental plant because of its beautiful flowers. In areas where it grows normally, it is good for biodiversity. It has been used traditionally as a treatment for several diseases. The plant should not be ingested because it has some substances like hallucinogen that can be harmful to human. When consumed, the seeds may cause nausea, drowsiness and vomiting. It regenerates very fast and hence auto competes with the indigenous plants. If not checked, it can reduce biodiversity. It has also been used to cover ugly fences and walls and small buildings.

The plant grows well in well-drained moist soil. It can also grow in the shade.
