Vicia caroliniana (common name Carolina vetch, or Carolina wood vetch), is a plant found in North America.
The Cherokee use this plant for a variety of medicinal purposes. It is used for back pains, local pains, to toughen muscles, for muscular cramps, twitching and is rubbed on stomach cramps. They also use a compound for rheumatism, for an affliction called "blacks", and it is taken for wind before a ball game. An infusion is used for muscle pain, in that it is rubbed on scratches made over the location of the pain. An infusion is also taken as a emetic. It is also used internally with Pseudognaphalium obtusifolium ssp. obtusifolium for rheumatism.
