Blue Lotus
Blue Lotus

This is a psychoactive flower prized by the ancient Egyptians. I use two grams of the extract as a dose, taken orally after eating a fatty meal. :) Without making an aged elixir, extracts are the only sure fire way to get noticable effects in my experience.

               The first and most interesting fact that you should know about Erythroxylum catuaba is that it's related to erythroxylum coca, hints the name. The erythroxylum coca variety actually produces Cocaine. This variety has a lot of medicinal value and is not controlled in the United States. According to ancient lore, the title "Catuaba" actually comes from a Guarani word that translates to "that which gives strength to the Indian".[2] Because of this, I first made the safe assumption that the herb was stimulating in nature.


Later on, I came to find out my educated assumption about the stimulant nature of the herb was correct. After trying my first and mild dose, I felt a unique and uplifting vibe that was similar to that of Kratom, yet with a dimension of its very own. Further research also confirms that it has been used in traditional Brazilian preparations for stimulating the CNS and as a powerful and organic aphrodisiac.[2 wiki] It's much more than just an energy booster though. According to a study conducted, extracts of Catuaba showed great promise in preventing deadly bacterial infections and HIV as well in mice.[2]


How Does Catuaba Work?

How can Catuabu possibly be a medicine though? What makes a tree bark act as a medicine? The answer is that plants produce pharmacological phytochemicals. In simpler terms, it means nature produces medicine. It's important to know that medicine was never really invented. Medicine was actually discovered. Today's big pharmaceutical empire was built by capturing natural phytochemicals and selling them to the world, while making their sources illegal. For example, the Opium Poppy is where Morphine and all opiates come from. Man did not invent them. There's no telling what kind of synthetic drugs are out there which are just altered forms from this botanical.


How To Use Catuaba


Here is a great infusion that I came up with myself. My intention was to combine some of my favorite herbs with similar properties to make the ultimate elixir. Catuaba is necessary in the mixture, as it's not the same without it. The recipe includes: 4 herbs, 1 pinch Myrrh, 1 pinch Catuaba, 1 pinch Ginger, 1 pinch erythrina-mulungu. Equal parts are powdered and added to just enough everclear to cover the herbs. The mixture is soaked for at least one month, filtered, and stored in glass bottles in a cool and dark place.
