Facts On Rare Ethnobotanicals!

Kratom Update: The FDA is in a battle against Americans. They're going to the W.H.O. now to try to ban it internationally.. Follow the American Kratom Association to continue to stop all bans and protect our freedom. Sign petititons and make calls and send emails. Psalms 91:3 "For it is HE who delivers you from the snare of the trapper, and from the deadly pestilence."

I'm literally working on these pages every day. Note: This website is divided into two categories of plants: Ethnobotanials, and Herbals. The Ethnobotanicals section contains: a mix of Christian Biblical warnings about occultic practices involving certain plants used by other cultures, and warnings on certain toxic plants being marketing irresponsibly by certain online vendors, but it also has a few other more common items such as Tobacco, Hemp, and more common items like Kava, anything potentially "psychoactive", is under ethnobotanicals. For everything else that's strictly health related, ie: Peppermint, Echinacea, Chamomile, Lavender, Mullein, etc, is under the Herbals section.

Deuteronomy 18:9-13 "When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. 10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee. 13 Thou shalt be perfect with the LORD thy God."

       This is no ordinary selection of plants. These sacred ethnobotanicals are of great interest to pharmocologist, ethnobotanist, scientist, phytochemist, and have been used in different religions including Christianity, Jewish traditions, other Israel originating faiths, and even the new age movement.. They have been highly sought after by human beings sense the beginning. They are basically tools, which have been used from everything to construction, to medicine, 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 staples of life 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 fought over them, to this day. [The 'war on drugs' is more than a war on Marijuana] Below I will discuss each one briefly, in alphabetical order. Click on the plants image or title to be redirected to an entire page dedicated to it alone. This database is ever growing. If you want to see another botanical species added to the vaults or for anything else! Thanks!

Picralima nitida - Akuamma seed!
picralime kratom alternative

          Akuamma seeds are pharmacologically very similar to Kratom. They first starting appearing in shops online during a failed ban many years ago on Mitragyna speciosa. The seeds produce constituents which are so closely similar that they are nearly identical. If you research these ethnobotanicals via different scholarly resources you'll start to notice a pattern of recurrence in nature in terms of phytochemicals. It's believed to have 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. I've included thorough citations on the page as well. I've tried it and it seemed to give similar effects for sure but I can't say I prefer it over Kratom. You can read a more thorough explanation of Akuamma seed use here on the site as well.

Erythrina mulungu - Anxiety, Depression, Insomnia, Sedation
erythrina mulungu by wikipedia:Yikrazuul

          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. I became immediately fascinated by this and had to add it to the database. It's believed to have 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. It's believed by herbalist to be generally calming, soothing, and mood lifting. 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; Entada rheedii; Dreams
african dream herb seed

        African Dream Herb seeds are used by indiginous cultures of Africa, hints the name. They are used as an Oneirogen, which historic cultures claim induces vivid dreams.. It's not un-common for vendors to claim that these induce prophetic dreams, but in reality this teaching is a form of mind-training which deceives you into divination. Prophecy is from God, divination is from lucifer. They're very similar, but from different sources. To illustrate this point, I want to quote from: 2 Peter 1:21 "No true prophecy came by the will of man, but men spake as they were moved by the holy spirit." They are often carried for good luck, also known as a "talisman", but the bible says ( and I can testify its truth ), that these "lucky charms", are actually "UNLUCKY CHARMS". They will draw in demons, and lead you to the snare of the trapper.. These things are the biggest seeds that I've ever seen. They can also be made into jewlery and other objects used by various cultures to brainwash people into committing idolatry, so know this and avoid deception. 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 had many believed medicinal qualities by native cultures. It seems beyond plausible that there are psychoactive ingredients that the trees genetics create, as many others have proven to us their pharmacological capabilities. I'd like to see more studies done on this "Entada rheedi" species. These seeds are often cursed, and I highly advise against getting them from most shops, and if you have had a problem with idolatry or new ageism in the past, avoid them at all costs.

Any plant or substance that is believed to enhance, stimulate, or improve the recall or vividness 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 may share vital messages related to our waking lives. I suggest using fluoride free water and practicing mindfulness to enhace your dream life but talk with a doctor. I 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.

Alepidea Amatymbica aka Zulu; Oneirogen
Alepidea Amatymbica iqwili


                This is a rare plant from Africa that a shop in Kansas which closed down in 2019 called Bouncing Bear Botanicals used to sell. There is a page for every shamanic item that they used to sell with warnings backed by scripture. The shamanic-cultures in this plants homeland have embraced the use this plant in what one could refer to as "a new age context" Traditionally, the dry rhizomes and roots were smoked or powdered and consumed as a snuff used for divination. This is forbidden by scripture and opens one up to idolatry and worshipping false gods. (Isaiah 44:17 "and the residue thereof he maketh a God, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshippeth it, and prays unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god".. It shows how pathetic idolatry and false gods are. Rocks. Items. Feelings. It's Of the flesh and earth, not of one's spirit or the spirit of Yahweh) I don't suggest trying to reenact these practices; Like the African Dream Herb and many others, this ethnobotanical was and is used for its sedative effects and to stimulate vividness when it comes to ones dreaming mind. The Xhosa people living in south-eastern Africa have also used it. It's known as Ikhathazo (Zulu), kalmoes (Afr.), Lesoko (Sotho), Iqwili in the Xhosa language and "large tinsel flower": (Eng.) The sacred scripture mentions god using dreams as a means to facilitate prophecy among his people: Numbers 12:6 "Here my words: if there is a prophet among ,you, I the Lord make myself known to him in a dream." but it also says man can not force prophecy(), and anything tied to sorcery and idolatry is cursed(), and those who involve theirselves are too cursed( Deuteronomy 18:10-12 "There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee." ). This is not to encourage one to stop listening for God though, but rather to learn the lesson of discernment, and to utilize prayer. "For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falleth upon men, in slumberings upon the bed; Then he openeth the ears of men, and sealeth their instruction, That he may withdraw man from his purpose, and hide pride from man."


Amanita pantherina mushrooms & Amanita muscaria

amanita pantherina mushrooms  amanita muscaria mushrooms

          A shop I used to promote in Kansas called Bouncing Bear used to sell these so I put up a page on them. Both of these strains of Mushrooms have a history of use in various Shamanic cultures, ( see what the sacred scriptures say about the context of using plants ). They contain alkaloids of a believed oneirogenic{dream inducing} nature. They are classified as both a dilerant and psychedelic(I call b.s.). They are interesting and worthy of research yet as a fair 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(see earthstongue.com) 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. I've never tried this but from what I can tell I think they are not what people want them to be. Read more about Amanita's here My discernment tells me these are not for consumption, and the shops and teachings online asscoiated with them are false, and from the enemy. Only dark black magic sorcerers use toxic plants as "entheogens" or "sacraments". God's people uses the one's made for us. Here is an appropriate bible quote in reference to discernment of fruit: Matthew 7:16 KJV: "Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit."


Ayahuasca; Banisteriopsis Caapi; Oneirogen
ayahuasca banisteriopsis caapi vine

       People need to be careful with this stuff. The Holy Bible condemns any type of sorcery, as it comes with consequences. Consuming a plant isn't in itself bad, but: when used to interact with unseen forces it is.. only commune with him.. The teachings associated with certain plants are what is bad, and most of the time not the plant itself. There is a correct and incorrect way to use what God has freely given to us, and to view it, and to feel towards it in our heart. I continue for educational purposes.. Ayahuasca vine is the main ingredient in a brew used by shamans in Peru known as, Ayahuasca. It's traditional use allowed shamans to "enter the sacred supernatural world for healing, divinity, and worship." I'm not insulting anyone but be warned, those who engage in such practices always regret it. To the cultures in which their use originates ,these plants are considered "plant teachers", and according to tradition they contain "sentient intelligence", and "vast knowledge that revels guidance". The reality is, they enter the spirit realm and fail to test the spirits, and then buy into false luciferian doctrine (teachings) that these spirits teach If you do plan to disobey gods law, I suggest having a Bible handy for when you're ready for protection again, so be prepared to repent and throw all your gem stones away.. ( been there.. ) Look up my site on the waybackmachine. How you think I know the spirit of Jesus Christ is real? God made these things for a reason, but there is a time, place, purpose, and those meant to use them and those meant not to. See Revelation 10

Be aware, new age teachings induce narcissism and idolatry of false gods. Paranormal activity is also commonly reported after messing around with Ayahuasca in the wrong context, or becoming involved with any new age practices. See Deuteronomy 18:9-14


BayBean; Canavalia rosea; Aromatic Smoke
Baybean Canavilia rosea
Click Item Title Or Image To Learn More

         This little known ethnobotanical is found in Mexico and parts of South America. It has a very pleasant aroma and flavor that to me, resembles Cohiba brand Tobacco ( They make cigars ). I have personally used it to quit smoking, which I eventually picked back up again.. The effects are quite simliar to Tobacco and the aroma is very dark(like a Cohiba cigar, or dark chocolate), almost like a lager. It can be combined with home grown Tobacco or cured with it as well.! The effects are mild, sedative, and very tranquil. It produces a chemical called L-Betonicine A book called Plants of the Gods, By two phytochemist: Schultes & Hofmann, says the plant is smoked on the gulf coast of Mexico as an alternative to Mary Jane. From my experience trying this stuff back in 2011ish, it's no stronger than Tobacco, which means it is NOT an alternative to Cannabis. It goes good with homegrown Tobacco though! Get the seeds @ herbalism.shop Many believe the leaves have a mildly psychoactive effect. People were using it as a carrier back then for what is known as "spice", or "k2". That was a real life plot. A local here in Navarre told me quote "I was initiated into a secret pagan society." I was like, well it's not a secret anymore, cuz I'm telling everyone. They're "far right", as the media puts it. Do your part so we can continue to hunt them down legally and bring them to justice, and seek the Most High God. Play dumb with them, they tell on theirself, very dumb.


Betel Nuts; Areca catechu; Stimulant Anesthetic
Betel Nuts Areca catechu

                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'm a little surprised they aren't being sold in gas stations everywhere. I hate the idea of something great being banned without people knowing about it. This is part of the reason I focus on such rare ethnobotanicals, but also delve into common ones. I tried it and man was I impressed. I don't want to exaderate but I can vouche for the fact that this wasn't no placebo. You can learn more about the experiences I've had in my fully detailed experience reports here on the site. I want to link you to a video of two women preparing the betel nuts for sale in India This is one of those things I believe isn't too popular yet because of other things like Cannabis, and Kratom. Because it seems to require some prepraration and isn't as easy to consume. God makes it clear in the bible that he has given us every seed bearing herb, and that the fruit of a tree tells us whether it is for us or to be left alone, because no good fruit bring forths evil fruit, and no evil fruit brings forth good fruit. In my opinion, this stuff is similar to Yerba Meta ( which is kinda like tea, but not the same plant ). It's less potent than something like Kratom, but stronger than tea. Here's a great video of a dude in Taiwan tries Betel Nuts for the first time!

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. If you want to learn more about the science and phytochemical constituents present in this particular psychoactive plant, visit botanicalguides.com's page on Betel Nuts.

To understand that "new ageism" and "shamanism" and "astrology" and all of these occultic practices are fake, one must realize they are satanic in nature, and are literally forms of mind training. All they do is train you to violate the first two commandments which causes the fallen ones to swarm in around you. When you do this, you loose the protection of the Most High God of the bible, and are literally working for the enemy. There is no such thing as "white magic", and these new age teachings are really just satanic with a mask over it, portrayed as "angelic". The real power belongs to team righteousness, and the Most High God of the bible is known as the Almighty, and the Alpha and Omega for a reason. The enemies of God are the beta to his alpha, and they are sore losers.

There is no such thing as a "lucky charm" my friend.
They're all really "unlucky charms".
Other names for these occult objects include: talismans, sigils, etc.
