Here are a few of the most significant health advantages of Cubeb pepper use.

The leaves are 6 inches long and have a short, robust petiole. The leaf is lanceolate or oval-oblong in form, with an acute tip. Usually, the major vein is below the uneven base, which is slightly waved, partially coriaceous, and pale rather than deep green.

The cubeb pepper's sessile, dioecious, unisexual blossom. Each bloom has a bract base that is tightly packed with tiny, rounded, solid, and straight spikes against the leaves. The female spikes are shorter, rougher, thicker, and fatter than the male spikes, which are thin, short-stalked, and lengthy in length.

Axillary inflorescence racemes that grow horizontally from the axis and produce a slender raceme (many ovaries aborted) approximately 2 inches long are sparsely pubescent, about 1/4 inch long, blunt, and slightly tapered at the base. When the youthful yellow transforms into red, the fruits are green.
