Khat - Catha edulis

What is it and why have I never heard of it? Most of you are probably familiar with Kratom ( Mitragyna speciosa ). How about the coca plant that cocaine is made from? What about Cannabis, and psychedelic mushrooms? You should be seeing a trend by now. These are examples of natural drugs if you will ( not like crack ). When we look at synthetic legal versions of these substances we can see a clear difference in their safety. The real danger is not the plants, it's the prohibition of the plants.


Khat is a plant, and natural and powerful narcotic stimulant. It was enjoyed all around the world where it used to be legal until governments worldwide took action against the harmless plant. Khat was outlawed in the United States in 1993. There were never any recorded deaths from its use or even the slightest bit of danger involved that anyone could observe. The real danger to public health came following the prohibition of Khat.


Following the decision to outlaw Khat in 1993, chemist and drug dealers saw an opportunity. Someone figured out how to take the active alkaloid produced by the Khat plant called cathinone, and turn it into the infamous "bath salts". Never in the history of the use of Khat were there any dangerous and bizarre news stories related to its consumption. Bath salts on the other hand, was and still is a nightmare. All of this was because the world health organization thinks it was addictive. At least no one ever took some Khat and then turned into a cannibal zombie. Thanks law makers for another incredibly stupid decision.

If you happen to live in a region of the world where it's still legal, you can obtain the seeds Here.
