Hurt my back bad, while waiting at doc office, heard some patients talk about using Red Bali (an herb I think) to deal with pain. Went online and found that it has soothing effects as well as relieve pain, also helps you sleep. Is this too good to be true? Anyone using this at all? Can't find a place to buy either.

Wiki says it has opioid properties and is psychoactive. I would not play around with this, since you would have no way to know how potent the particular supplement is. There have been deaths from recreational use of this herb.
