Poppy - ( Papaver somniferum )
poppy seeds

The Opium Poppy is the source of all pharmaceutical opiates. It naturally produces these fascinating phytochemicals. It has been prized for centuries by various cultures around the globe. The ancient Chinese especially enjoyed it recreationally. It's been said that three bowls of pure opium a day was the dosage of an addict. I personally think corruption was at play and responsible for the banning of this flower.. Drug companies have access to Poppies and Marijuana grow operations.. Shouldn't the truth be obvious? It actually had its place both recreationally and medicinally throughout history. A pen-pal from Vietnam once told me, the banning of Kratom was because of the Opium-Trade going on there. I discuss in detail on an entire page dedicated to this plant, the truth about the Opium Poppy.


Psychotria nervosa

This entheogenic species is well known by Florida botanist. It's also commonly referred to as "Wild Coffe". The catch is that it does NOT contain caffeine. Instead, this plant is closely related to Psychotria viridis[an Ayahuasca ingredient], which is used in Shamanic rituals involving the sacred brew known as "Ayahuasca". Because of the fact that it contains a neurochemical believed to be related to dreams and OBE, many believe it to be an oneirogen ( dream inducing ). This unique combination of specific plants was used to induce heightened states of consciousness, tuning the human mind in to frequencies and wisdom un-attainable by standard levels of perception. There are certain religions organizations which have the legal right to consume it in the USA. You can still buy it as a collectors item though either way.


Peyote; Lophophora Williamsii
peyote by wikipedia

Peyote is an extremely intense psychedelic used in religious context by various cultures around the globe. The cactus species is very similar to the mighty San Pedro. Peyote is legal for the Native American Church in the USA. Not just anyone can legally consume or grow this cactus. Even someone who cultivates Peyote for the Native American Church is required by law to obtain a legal registration on a yearly basis to do so. They must also comply with all other requirements set in place by the law. We need more freedom in this country. I'm proud to support reform groups that seek to educate and legalize these substances. There is a huge movement in the scientific community to stand behind these plants and cacti. I'm proud of them.


Picralima nitida - Akuamma Seed!
akuamma plant

Akuamma is phytochemically very similar to Kratom. When the DEA was threatening to ban it ( which isn't legal ), a lot of "alternatives" hit the open market. Not only it is very similar to Mitragyna speciosa, but it also shows striking similarities to Yohimbe.. Instead of Mitragynine, it contains "akuammine" and many others. There's quite a bit of scientific literature on its pharmacology as well. Both species are also very chemically similar to Iboga and Ibogaine believe it or not! I was sold on it to find these facts out to say the least. It's sorta the same but different. I was impressed but you can't take as much of it as say, White Thai.
