Humulus lupulus (Scientific name)

General poisoning notes:

Hop (Humulus lupulus) is cultivated for its use in beer-making. It is also used as an ornamental vine in many areas. Hop pickers can develop dermatitis from working with common hop plants (Raith and Jager 1984, Fuller and McClintock 1986).
