Jurda is a plant grown in Novyi Zem. The powdered dried blossoms of the plant is used as a stimulant all over the world.
Jurda Parem is a drug made by Bo Yul-Bayur that uses Jurda as the main ingredient. It is similar in appearance to the stimulant, though sweeter in taste and lethal to Non-Grisha. To a Grisha, the drug modifies their power, not enhance like an amplifier, by changing their perception of the world. Jurda Parem is addictive and slowly weakens the body of the user.
Although there are no current antidotes for parem, Jesper believes that the antidote could be found in the stem of jurda plants (which has a balm that can be used as a depressant).
