Dr. Sebi talks about the real sea moss health benefits and shows us what real sea moss looks like. Skip to 4:05 in this video, Dr. Sebi holds up a piece of sea moss.
The footage is a little blurry, but you can see that it is a twig or small stick-like piece of seaweed. It is not flat or leafy, nor is it dark red. Dr. Sebi calls this by the name Chondrus Crispus (see http://www.marinespecies.org/photogallery.php?album=766&pic=3524), which is a species that grows in cooler waters, typically in the Northern Atlantic.
The image on the left of the thumbnail is Chondrus Crispus, while the image on the left is Eucheuma Cottonii (see https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Seaweed-species-of-the-Eucheuma-Cottonii-in-its-natural-surrounding_fig2_331262817).
Eucheuma Cottonii can be responsibly farmed in tropical waters, and is more closely related to the species of sea moss that Dr. Sebi held up. What he showed us could have also been of the genus Gracilaria (see http://www.marinespecies.org/aphia.php?p=taxdetails&id=145699).
It is not surprising that there is some confusion over what is the real sea moss and what is fake. As there are estimated to be more than 35,000 species of seaweed it can be tough to tell one from the other.
Commonly consumed seaweed that is marketed and accepted as sea moss include Eucheuma Cottonii (more correctly known as Kappaphycus Alvarezii), Eucheuma Denticulatum, and Gracilaria.
