Is there any benefit to this over just aloe sap?[]

They both give the same effects. Does the paste work better? Greatest Ape (talk) 18:31, 13 December 2020 (UTC)

Yes, any medicine that is ground into a paste gives much more curing / protection that the lower "versions". You can eat some Khat leaves and get a small amount of protection but if you grind them into Grinded Khat paste you get a huge amount of protection. At first when you start the game, these differences are very noticeable. It might take 5 or 6 times eating Khat leaves to get up to full protection but a single use of grinded khat is full protection from one use. As the game progresses and you get Preventative Medication neurons, these make it so that medicine items work better, even the less good versions. This makes it easier to heal and get protections but any of the ground medicines are some of the strongest versions in the game. They give protection for a very long time and cure very quickly.
Aloe Sap Paste is much better for protection that just the aloe sap. Once you can grind plants to make pastes, you should do this and have it available because it provides strong healing and protections. You can grind up African Turmeric and make Turmeric Paste and give it to you clan members so they have long lasting venom protection from snake bites. It's also really good for things like Horsetail Paste (bleeding) and the Mushroom pastes (food poisoning and broken bones). You can find all of the recipes here - Grinding. :) --GS877 (talk) 19:45, 13 December 2020 (UTC)
