From what I read, alkaloids (ephedrine and pseudoephedrine) make up about 1-3% of the dry weight. Ephedrine makes up 40 to 90% of the alkaloid content. As far as other plants go, I really can't think of any. Hope this is helpful.

Quote:

Wikipedia said:
Plants of the Ephedra genus, including E. sinica and others, have traditionally been used by indigenous people for a variety of medicinal purposes, including treatment of asthma, hay fever, and the common cold.[1] E. sinica (Ma Huang) contains 1-2% alkaloids, 40-90% of which is ephedrine; 2-10g of the herb are used to relieve the symptoms of colds and asthma.[citation needed] The alkaloids ephedrine and pseudoephedrine are active constituents of E. sinica and other members of the genus. These compounds are sympathomimetics with stimulant and decongestant qualities and are related chemically to the amphetamines. Ephedra nevadensis contains ephedrine in its roots, stems and branches.[2] Ephedra distachya contains up to 3% ephedrine in the entire plant.[3] Ephedra sinica contains approximately 2.2% ephedrine.[4]
