UPDATE: The controversy with the DEA over banning kratom has cooled off and it remains legal. Things make change but they are looking hopeful so stay tuned and involved. You can still get Kratom via SoulSpeciosa.
The YouTube show below was published prior to the attempted ban in an attempt to help save the herb. There was a lot of resistance and legal preparation for this. I'd like to give a big shout out and thanks to the American Kratom Assosociation for doing everything they could to help, and all of the people who shared my post on social media, and signed and shared the petition. Also thanks to all the subscribers to the channel, and my newsletter, and my followers on social medial, and everyone else. Stay tuned for more great content and please continue to share my post.
Importance Of Heirloom Seeds
There is currently a dangerous epicdemic that threatens our food supply. It's basically when food genetics, seeds, are altered in laboratory conditions by splicing in alternate geneteics from various sources other than plants. It can be described as mad scientist like in nature. Many countries have banned these seeds and foods. So what I'm doing is proudly promoting seed survival kits which include 1.8 lbs of seeds with many varities of foods for you and your family. All of the seeds are heirlooms and contain no gmo origins.
website is dedicated to medicinal, psychoactive, and otherwise useful plants, aka
Ethnobotanicals. It touches base on ethnobotany AND at times, briefly explains the
importance of its relationship with phytochemistry, pharmacology, psychology,
psychonautics, oneironautics, and others, and talks about the history and lore of these
botanicals. Ethnobotany is the study of the relationship that humans beings have with
plants. It embraces all aspects of the cultural use of plants. From the use of plants in spiritual or religious context, to
using herbs as medicine, or for construction and dye, these facts are all studied under the field of
Some of the articles that I write may seem off topic, but I really like to show the
vital connection that various fields of interest have with one another. For example,
Ethnobotany and Meteorology may seem unrelated when given little thought. If we take the
time to think about it though, weather and botanicals are directly connected to one
another. The same is so with pharmacology and botany because a wide number of herbs produce
chemicals of such pharmacological importance that without them, any attempt to practice
"making medicine" would result in poor and often fatal results.
With this in mind please note that some articles may be off the main topic of
botanicals from time to time, yet I always find a way to show the fascinating link between
multiple topics. Discussions on such interest are still a major interest to people who are
interested in the use of plants as spiritual catalyst, medicine, etc. Such topics may
include Oneirogens and lucid dreaming,
phytochemicals and various forms of natural healing practices
like yoga, shamanic journeying, discussions on consciousness, psychedelics, psychology,
color therapy, meteorological connections with ethnobotany and various cultural lore, near
death and out of body experiences, the cultivation of plants, genetics and heirlooms,
freedom, religion, history, society, and more.
I'm releasing the first episode of the Botanical Guides internet talk show within the first or second week of August, 2016. I'll have some awesome guest in the future, including Charley Morley, a Buddhist lucid dreaming and meditation teacher. The show has two off and on co-host which are two of my best friends. I'll also have a girl named Deanne who traveled to Peru recently to partake in an Ayahuasca healing ceremony. She'll share her experiences and what she learned with you all first hand. The shows will be archived on my website and posted on YouTube as well. Stay tuned!
The Psychonaut Hour is a talk show that I decided to create to go along with this website on the side. I do vear off from the subject of ethnobotany on the show, although all of the topics discussed are generally some how tied to the ethnobotany in some way. The show is hosted by myself, Scott Hermann, and my good friend Ryan Sargent. Soon, we will have another friend of mine co-hosting. We may rotate from host to host throughout each episode. I went ahead and added the first episode to the website further down the page. Please subscribe!
