The Pink Lotus is closely related to the Blue Lotus. Both have a tranquilizing sedative effect on the body and a stimulating and soothing effect on the minds eye. The pink lotus carries the same vibration as the color itself.

                This is no ordinary selection of plants. These ethnobotanical specimens are of great interest to pharmocologist, ethnobotanist, scientist, alternative healers, spiritualist, shamans, and other cultures across the globe. Ethnobotanicals are plants that have been highly sought after by human beings sense the beginning. Below I will discuss these sacred tools in alphabetical order. Keep in mind this is only a small portion of ethnobotanicals in the world.

Ololiuqui - Rivea corymbosa

               Ololiuqui is scientifically referred to as Rivea Corymbosa. It's very closely related to Morning Glories and Hawaiian Baby Woodrose because of the natural compounds that it produces, and it's historic use as an aid to the minds eye and spiritual practices. Native Shamans believed that these seeds could help them gain knowledge in curing practices and ritual, enabling them to discover the causes for all illness. This information is presented for research purposes only. Do not consume these seeds. They are only legal to grow. This information is presented strictly for research. Facts regarding these seeds is readily available from scholarly resources. I'd like to make the sincere point that these seeds can be dangerous.

Opium Poppy; Papaver somniferum

                Yes, the OPIUM Poppy. The worlds most effective pain medication could not exist without this flower. In fact, man does not even create this medication. Instead, big pharmaceutical companies simply extract it from the poppy plant. You see, poppies naturally contain morphine, heroin, thebaine, codeine, papaverine, and noscapine, to name a few. So the next time you go to the dentist in extreme pain and you are prescribed opiates, remember that the relief you get from those pills would not exist if it were not for this flower. Remember that this information is simply that, information. It's intended for research purposes only.

Opium Lettuce; Lactuca virosa

                Opium Lettuce does not contain opium. It does however, contain many constituents that are opiate-like. Aside from it's relaxing, pain relieving properties, it does offer some medicinal qualities as well. Although, an entheogen known as Kratom offers a much more powerful punch that can be compared to poppy constituents such as morphine. The opium lettuce is much more tame or subtle.
