It's a very stable crop, and grows like a weed. If you're looking to give back to the biosphere, this stuff is a great way to contribute. By planting Sleepgrass, you are essentially helping to convert excess co2 into fresh air, right? It's a great way to give back to the biosphere. This plant makes plenty of seeds and comes back every single year. It's rather difficult to find the seeds or dried material for sale now a days.
Back in the day Sleepy Grass ( Stipa robusta ) was sold by Bouncing Bear Botanicals before they were illegaly raided by the DEA in cooporation with local authorities. While this stuff is not in itself illegal, attempting to extract any of the psychoactive constituents within it is, and so is using it in an entheogenic fashion. Because of this, the owners lawyers advised him to stop selling it all together. If he hadn't marketed it the way he did they may have never came after him.
It's quite a fascinating but sad story what happened wtih the bbb. This page serves as a history time stamp of that time. Not long after I first started putting this website together, they dropped a lot of products for legal reasons like the New Mexico Feather Grass ( Stipa robusta ), Ayahuasca related items, and other extreme grey area's like Hawaiian Baby Woodrose. You can still find most of these for legal purposes, but the people who sell them are a lot smarter than they used to be about marketing them.
