       This is no ordinary selection of plants. These sacred ethnobotanicals are of great interest to pharmocologist, ethnobotanist, scientist, phytochemist, alternative healers, "spiritualist", shamans, and other cultures across the globe. 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.

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, prophetic, and lucid dreams.. They are often carried for good luck. 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. 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.


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 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. Botanicals like these were believed to help to awaken your consciousness in both the waking and sleeping worlds by many civilizations. That is what the term "entheogen" basically refers to. A plant or substance that 'awakens the divine from within' [.i.e. Marijuana].

Amanita pantherina mushrooms & Amanita muscaria


amanita pantherina mushrooms  amanita muscaria mushrooms

          Both of these strains of Mushrooms have a history of use in various Shamanic cultures. They contain alkaloids of a believed oneirogenic nature. They are classified as both a dilerant and psychedelic. 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


Ayahuasca; Banisteriopsis Caapi; Oneirogen
ayahuasca banisteriopsis caapi vine

       Ayahuasca vine is the main ingredient in a sacred brew used by shamans in Peru known as, Ayahuasca. A friend of mine recently traveled there to legally partake in a ceremony where they all drank it! It's traditional use allowed shamans to "enter the sacred supernatural world for healing, divinity, and worship." I'm not insulting their beliefs but scientist and activist have an interest in it two, and different beliefs. 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.


These ancient beliefs are pretty interesting to me. I don't subscribe to all these beliefs that the people of Peru do but I'm my own person. I especially find the part about the plants containing sentient intelligence interesting. 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. They were designed by the same creativity that created us and everything else!


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 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.. Straight up I think it's just like nicotine. I would be curious to examine any phytochemical similarities between the two active chemical constituents. I think it would be fun to be a phytochemist and isolate these active pharmacological gems!


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 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.
