Hello my fellow followers and thank you for checking out this brand new page. Today's botanical goes by the scientific name of Galbulimima belgraveana. I chose to write about this plant and add it to the database for two reasons. The first one is that it's another oneirogen (dream herb), and the second is that you never hear about it on other ethnobotany websites, at least not most of them.


Most people are aware of the popular plant known as Kratom which originates from Malaysia and Papua New Guinea. Other popular entheogenic gems from this region of the world are not quite as mainstream. This is another reason I'm writing about Galbulimima today. It is native to Australia, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Papua New Guinea, much like Galanga maraba, which has also recently been added to Botanical guides.


Firstly, it IS a psychedelic species and there have been some phytochemical constituents identified, which means there has been studies on it. It contains a few alkaloids which are psychoactive and structurally related to Himbacine, which is a muscarinic receptor antagonist. This time of chemical similarity is something you see over and over again in the plant kingdom. This is just one of many examples of the innate and intimate connection between all things.


Let's briefly examine why this botanical may effect our neurochemistry in a way that can enhance our dreams. First of all, most "quick fix" type lucid dreaming supplements work to effect acetylcholine and other neurochemical levels in the brain. So what exactly does the chemicals in Galbulimimia do? Well, as stated before, they effect certain receptor sites which utilize these chemicals. More specifically and according to my sources, "A muscarinic receptor antagonist (MRA) is a type of anticholinergic agent that blocks the activity of the muscarinic acetylcholine receptor. Acetylcholine (often abbreviated ACh) is a neurotransmitter whose receptor is a protein found in synapses and other cell membranes."


Traditional Preparation Methods


There are many well known ways to prepare herbal remedies, medicines, and psychoactives. Some of these include the classic tincture ( made with alcohol ), tea, decoctions, infusions, spagyrics, and more complex extractions. Traditionally, the leaves were eaten or boiled along with the leaves of a less known variety called H. ereriba or H. lauterbachii, much like an ayahuasca preparation. The effects are said to kick in almost immediately.


Precautions

This stuff is not something to take lightly. Other plants like Calea zachatechichi, and Xhosa, have been exaggeratedly "psychedelic". They do work from my experience but they are not quite as "narcotic" or "psychedelic" in the traditional sense. Galbulimima on the other hand has been reported to cause extreme dilation of the pupils and unusual behaviors from that of the sober life. It also requires someone who really knows what they are doing to identify such a plant. Maybe one day it will make an underground appearance in our country. Until then, it's cool to learn about.
