Is there an acid that could dissolve plant matter quickly?

  1. Oct 9, 2014 #1
    I have decided to grow a plant that could possibly help with my illness. This plant could possibly cause an issue due to its nature. Is there an acid that is somewhat safe to dissolve dried plant material quickly? I have looked at other physics forums that talk about piranha acid and that is WAY to complex and dangerous for a simpleton like myself. If I am left with no other choice I guess I will need to research it more but, I would rather not.
