This is no ordinary selection of plants. These sacred ethnobotanicals are plants of great interest to pharmocologist, ethnobotanist, scientist, alternative healers, spiritualist, shamans, and other cultures across the globe. Ethnobotanicals have been highly sought after by human beings sense the beginning. They are basically tools, which have been used from everything to construction, to religious sacraments. They are useful in any way to human beings and have played a role in our history and evolution.
Whether were talking about seeds, roots, leaves, or flowers, these sacred ethnobotanicals have been required by every culture who's ever walked the face of the earth, in some way. Some of them are so significant that entire wars have been faught over them, to this day.[The 'war on drugs' is more than a war on Marijuana] Below I will discuss these "ethnobotanicals" briefly, in alphabetical order. Click on the plants image or title to be redirected to an entire page dedicated to it alone.
Akuamma seeds are pharmacologically very similar to Kratom. It produces constituents which are so closely similar that they are nearly identical. It has a lot of the same properties due to this chemical similarity, and is even offered as a Kratom alternative to those who are unfortunate enough to live in a state where it's illegal. Click on the title above if you're interesting in learning much more about it, and reading a good review.
Erythrina mulungu is one of several ethnobotanicals that is literally in the same family as the Coca plant ( used to make Cocaine ). It doesn't contain cocaine like Coca, but it's phytochemically very similar in nature. It has a wide range of medicinal benefits. I predict that it will soon become one of the most popular ethnobotanicals in the country, and world for that matter. Again, if you'd like to read more just click on the title above and you'll be redirected to a page full of information on Erythrina.
African Dream Herb seeds are used by indiginous cultures of Africa, hints the name. They are used as an Oneirogen, which induces vivid, prophetic, and lucid dreams.. They are often carried for good luck. They can also be made into jewlery and other objects used by various cultures. The tree itself contains phytochemicals which have been scientifically studied, hints the fact that we know they exist. You hardly ever read or hear about this plant having medicinal benefits, yet the actual tree that grows from this seed has many medicinal qualities. It seems beyond plausable that there are psychoactive ingredients that these genetics create, as many others have proven to us their pharmacological capabilities.

Any plant or substance that enhances, stimulants, or improves the recall of dreams, is called an oneirogen. These visions are spiritual, imaginative, and symbolic adventures that we go on every night, whether we remember or not.. The possibilities are endless when it comes to our dreaming mind. Research indicates that they share vital messages related to our waking lives. I suggest using fluoride free water and practicing mindfulness to enhace your dream life. Also keep a dream log, by writing them down in detail every morning. As soon as you wake up try to realize it and say to yourself, "wait a minute.. I was just asleep.. That means I was just dreaming... What was the last thing I was diong?". This will help you to recall your dreams with more ease every single day. If you practice it daily it will become a habit.
This is a rare entheogen from Africa, and one of many. The culture there has embraced the use of gifts such as this one for some time now. You'll notice that many of the really cool plants discussed on this site are native to Africa. Traditionally, the dry rhizomes and roots were smoked or powdered and consumed as a snuff. Like the African Dream Herb and many others, this tool was and is used for its sedative effects and to stimulate vividness when it comes to our dreaming mind. The Xhosa people living in south-eastern Africa have also used it for self-fortification and as a charm for good fortune. It's known as Ikhathazo (Zulu), kalmoes (Afr.), Lesoko (Sotho), Iqwili in the Xhosa language and "large tinsel flower": (Eng.)
These are Interesting beliefs indeed. Are many of us wasting our dream lives because we are not tuning in to our full potential as living creatures? We all have incredible abilities to dream and see with our mind. Plants like these ethnobotanicals can help to awaken your consciousness in both the waking and sleeping worlds. That is what the term entheogen basically referrs to. A plant or substance that 'awakens the divine from within'.
Both of these strains of Mushrooms have a history of use in various Shamanic cultures. They contain alkaloids of an oneirogenic nature. They are classified as both a dilerant and psychedelic. They are interesting and worthy of research yet as a far warning you must know that they can potentially make someone very ill, both physiologically and psychologically. They are not to be confused with the Psychedelic Psilocybin Mushrooms that Albert Hoffman so respectfully made well known to the academic and otherwise mainstream world. Hoffman was very interested in ethnobotanicals, and even published several books on the subject. Shrooms don't grow from seeds .. They grow from what's called spores. Read more about Amanita's here
Ayahuasca vine is the main ingredient in a sacred brew used by shamans known as, Ayahuasca. It's traditional use allowed shamans to enter the sacred supernatural world for healing, divination, and worship. These plants are considered "plant teachers", and according to tradition they contain sentient intelligence, and vast knowledge that revels guidance.
These ancient beliefs are pretty interesting to me. Especially the part about the plants containing sentient intelligence. Imagine if you will that everything that is you was once so small that it could not be seen to the naked eye. It was still encoded with information that eventually lead to your existence. A tall tree that reaches heights of over 100 feet was once a little tiny seed. These seeds hold data and this data is used in the production of other matter, and so on. It seems obvious to me that these sacred ethnobotanicals contain lessons to be taught, in the form of chemical messengers, designed to interact with humnan consciousness.
This little known ethnobotanical is found in Mexico and parts of South America. It has a very pleasant aroma and flavor that to me, that resembles Tobacco. I have personally used it to quit smoking, which I eventually picked back up again.. It's the perfect ingredient in any infusion. The effects are quite simliar to Tobacco and the aroma is very dark, almost lager. It can be combined with Tobacco or cured with it as well. The effects are mild, sedative, and very tranquil. To me, this is a must try. I believe the popularity of it will steadily climb over the years..
Betel Nuts are a popular stimulant similar to Coffee and others. The difference is that Betel Nuts do not contain Caffeine rather they naturally produce another chemical that has stimulating effects. They cause stimulation and a feeling of well-being. Traditionally they are used in Asia, India, and the Pacific over a span of several hours and even combined with Tobacco.
I think that Betel Nuts will one day be as popular as Kratom. There are tons of other ethnobotanicals that take the form of natural stimulants, besides Coffee. Caffeine is played out in my opinion. The effects of these Betel Nuts caused numbness in my mouth, a clear minded state of alertness, followed by an over-all sense of greatness. I give Betel Nuts two thumbs up.
