The common cashew nut of the West Indies. It is easily distinguished from our Anacardium which comes from the East Indies, being kidney-shaped, while
the Oriental nut, our well-proved medicine, is heart-shaped. It was never proved and is only known by the frequent cases of poisoning which occur from
peeling or roasting the nut. The kernel is edible, but it is advisable first to remove the germ between the halves.
The poisonous black juice contained between the outer and inner shell contain two peculiar principles, Anacardic acid and Cardol. Poisonings are frequently
mistaken for Rhus poisoning.
The effects on the skin are mentioned by C. Hg. in Cl. Müller’s Vierteljahrschrift in 1861, Vol. 12, p. 276. Cures on record excepting from Segin in Hygea.
