Rubbing firemoss was said to make a man’s mind more receptive to thoughts and ideas. The one time Szeth had tried it, it had given him a headache and two blistered fingers.
Szeth on firemoss[1]

Firemoss is a plant native to Roshar. It is an addictive drug used by rubbing the firemoss between the thumb and forefinger. When rubbed, it gives off a crackling sound and wisps of smoke and can blister the fingers until calluses are built up. It makes the experienced user feel euphoric.[1]

Firemoss can also be used to reduce cranial swelling in extreme cases, although there is a high risk of the patient developing an addiction.[2] While Kaladin is recovering from the fight with the chasmfiend and wandering in the chasms, he is offered firemoss as a pain reliever. He refuses it because he knows firemoss is addictive and remembers that his father hated using it.[3]
