Facts presented on this page are simply facts. They are not intended to encourage dangerous or illegal behavior. Ololiuqui can be bought and sold only for cultivation purposes. They are not sold or marketed for human consumption. The facts surrounding these seeds are already readily available. My intentions are harm reduction, and remaining within the constraints of the law. Consider your safety when dealing with any type of substance. The coating is poisonous and very dangerous! Don't make the mistake of thinking these are a "good time" because some marketers have no empathy for their readers, and I'm not one of those people. I care.
Ololiuqui is closely related to both Morning Glories, and Hawaiian Baby Woodrose. I'm pretty sure these plants are also depicted in the motion picture, "The Wizard Of Oz". This is my own personal obvservation and has nothing to do with anyone associated with the movie, its producers, etc. I think that its depiction in that movie clearly represents the symbolism behind their history as an ethnobotanical and entheogen though.
While you can't consume these in the USA, they have a vast ethnobotanical history. Throughout history this plant has had a long history of entheogenic use. Cultures have crafted many blends, infusions, or "elixirs" that contain Ololiuqui seeds and other parts of the plant. The flowers have been soaked in wine, and even the stems.. There's a large number of other natural medicines that could have been added to the mixtures in order to reduce nausea, and ward off stress and negativity before the journey. It's interesting to note that the seed coating contains some nasty compounds that should be regarded as poisonous. There's a lot of mysterious and little known recipies of historic and alchemical origins regarding this botanical..
Aside from its vast history of use as a mind/spirit manifesting species among ancient cultures (intended as ethnobotanical information only), it can also be thought of as a universal talisman that possesses very powerful symbolism and energy. The leaves are the same shape as the human symbol for the heart. Many believe that the message behind the plant has a lot fo do with always using your heart. Do I sense a synchronicity? The energy the seeds contain are the source of its power as noted by historic tribes, shamans, and other cultures who embraced their spiritual natural with ceremonial practices. This energy revolves around the heart and mind connection.
Please remember that this information is presented for research purposes only. The compounds created by this entheogenic plant are of great interest to pharmacologist, ethnobotanist, and other evolutionary branches of science. Albert Hoffman was also highly interested in these plants. Do not consume these seeds. They are only legal to grow. This information is presented strictly for research. Facts regarding these seeds are readily available from scholarly resources. I'd like to make the sincere point that these seeds can be dangerous. Note that there are several varieties of these closely related species including this one which is and Rivea corymbosa, and then there's Argyreia nervosa.
