Snakebite Tourniquet - cuts off the venom, no need to scavenge glands and blood. Or drink that mess.”— Ulysses
The Twisted Hairs created the recipe as an improvement over the standard antivenom, so that they wouldn't have to scavenge glands, blood, or drink the resulting concoction. As the name suggests, one uses the tourniquet to temporarily cut off circulation to the affected limb. Then they rub ground buffalo gourd seeds into the bite site to neutralize the venom and prevent it from affecting the rest of the body.
Here's some for the road - trick to making it's not hard. Get bit, hook and twist it. Fast as blinking, doesn't give poison time to sink in.”— Ulysses

Ulysses: "Antivenom's helpful around the Mojave with the Bark Scorpions. Even one sting can kill you. Tunneler bite can be just as bad. My tribe, Twisted Hairs, had a better way than Antivenom, if you act fast. Snakebite Tourniquet - cuts off the venom, no need to scavenge glands and blood. Or drink that mess. Part of the reason we wore our hair like we did, like I do now. Here's some for the road - trick to making it's not hard. Get bit, hook and twist it. Fast as blinking, doesn't give poison time to sink in."
