Oatstraw [Avena sativa]
buy oatstraw

The first thing I noticed about this plant is that it is in the Sativa family, which immediately reminded me of Marijuana. Aside from the large amounts of vitamins and minerals in Oatstraw, its also believe to have beneficial phytochemicals and a history of use in herbalism. I use it in everything from teas, to tinctures, and even cooking. It has a flavor that can blend well with most already heavily flavored dishes in my opinion. Again and like many other herbs, I know people who add it to their shampoo as a natural boost for its potential benefits. I like the idea of nourishing my hair with herbs.


Osha Root [Ligusticum porteri]
buy osha root

Osha root is prized by Native Americans for treating many ailments. I'm fortunate enough to have friends that are Native and they teach me things and share recipes with me. The Zuni people also use an infusion of the root for body aches. For this reason I find it incredible during short but intense bouts with the flu, etc. In ceremonies that involve healing, the root is also chewed by the tribes medicine man. It's also used by modern herbalist for sore throats. I've added it to some homemade infusions for use in a Vicks Vaporizer machine, and it works great. It's truly and under-rated plant and I hope to increase its popularity. It's almost like a pseudo-drug. You can click on the images to read much more about any of the plants listed herein.


Opium Lettuce
buy opium lettuce

Opium Lettuce is an opiate like herb that was used by the Native Americans. It's not much of a drug so don't get your hopes up. Kratom is better if you want an organic pseudo-buzz. There have been phytochemical analysis of the pharmacological constituents that it produces though. One of my ex girlfriends was a Native and she really loved this stuff to her heart and soul. She shared a lot that she grew herself with me, along with the knowledge of these sacred plants. I share with you all what I have learned and my personal experiences and opinions on these different herbs.


Opium poppy
buy poppy seeds

The Opium poppy itself was used in ancient times by cultures who did not prohibit the use of this plant as a medicine. Today, drug companies extract the active pharmacological alkaloids from it for profit. Sadly, there is an opiate epidemic. I believe the plant should have never been prohibited. They won't allow people to cultivate and use this medicine on their own. The seeds are still legal, and have been utilized by holistic practitioners. Be weary tho because the seeds can cause you to test positive for opiates on a drug test, including heroin. Some use the seeds as a medicine too, but you may risk false imprisonment if the wrong people find out. I'm not suggesting this, merely pointing it out.
