Monisola Abaeza was the granddaughter of a Shaman of great power and knowledge much of which he passed on to her, his only grandchild. The young botanist and student met and quickly fell in love. It was on their wedding night that Monisola revealed the secret of her clan’s youth, Sativa Abaeza. The herb which had been breed and cross-breed for its curative properties.
