Of the U. S. Ph. and Br. Ph., the wood of Picroena excelsa, or Quassia amara. In the shops it is usually usually met with in chips or raspings; it is also made into cups, called q. cups or bitter cups. It is intensely bitter, and was formerly used to replace hops in beer. Its medicinal properties are due to the presence of quassin. It is used as a stomachic and tonic, and against constipation due to intestinal atony.
