This product is not to be confused with designer drugs like "k2" or "spice", or even "Bath salts". It's not laced with anything synthetic. It's literally just the flowering tops of a plant that the Native Americans used. There was some confusion on this in the past so I had to make a note on the site to let everyone know that Indian warrior buds are literally flowers. They are close to Cannabis buds in terms of their composition not effects.

Plant Benefits


       This plant is commonly referred to as Indian Warrior, and actually produces buds like those of plants in the Cannabaceae family ( hops and cannabis ). Indian Warrior's scientific name is Pedicularis densiflora. The plant has been used by Native Americans for its medicinal and entheogenic properties. The medicinal effects sought after by Naitve Americans were the muscle relaxant properties that it's believed to produce. This partciular strain is the most potent of the Pedicularis species. The effects are believed to be sedative and tranquilizing and it is also used by herbalists and Natives for insomnia and nerve pain. The buds are of a magenta color. According to one academic source, "several classes of natural compounds have been reported within this genus and many of its species are well known to be employed in the traditional medicines of many Asian countries". So it also has use in Chinese medicine, or its genus at least! It has been one of the most searched pages on this entire website, so people must really like it.



According to my sources ( cited via scholar.google.com ), it contains the following potentially pharmacological phytochemicals: iridoid glycosides, phenylpropanoid glycosides (PhGs), lignans glycosides, flavonoids, alkaloids and other compounds. Vitro research suggest that some "monomer compounds and extracts from the genus Pedicularis have been found to possess antitumor, hepatoprotective, anti-oxidative, antihaemolysis, antibacterial activity, fatigue relief of skeletal muscle, nootropic effect and other activities." This research appears to be rather knew, as this particular plant hasn't been all that looked into until recently. Lots of other herbs on the other hand have. I have a feeling researchers will continue to gain more and more interest into Indian warrior, and we'll get a more in depth scientific analysis of its potential and active chemical principles in the near future.


Tincture Use And Production


      Indian Warrior is a plant that's flowers or buds make an excellent tincture. Tinctures are a potent form of alternative medicine with a very lengthy shelf-life. You can produce your tincture by adding Indan Warrior buds to a glass jar, and filling it with twice as much liquor as buds. A high proof clear liquor is recommended, such as Vodka or Everclear. Allow this mixture of Indian Warrior Bud and Liquor to soak from 4-6 weeks. Keep the tincture in a dark place away from extreme temperatures. A Native American friend of mine likes to combine it with a powerful immune boosting herb according to herbalism called Schisandra.



It's one of many plants that Native Americans had in their medicine stash. Some plants that are simliar in nature to Indian warrior include: Passion Flower, Skullcap, Kava, and Valerian. According to tradition yhey are all generally sedative in nature, and having several other unique medicine qualities of their own as well. Don't be confused, thinking of it as a drug, or you will be disappointed. It does have a vast history of use and in my opinion is useful. Based off of the researchers who classified its phytochemical constituents as having certain types of effects, it may offer some interesting applications for those interested.



Experience Report

I noticed calming effects and an observable muscle relaxation all over my body. Tension seemed to fade into a total state of comfort. I can see how it may be useful as an aid for falling asleep at night, aka for insomnia. I've also found it a great thing for calming the mind. I've taken in many different forms. From tinctures, to grinding it up for a toss and wash, to the typical tea, i've tried every method. A toss and wash is when you just wash it down with a drink. For me, this method worked best.


Effects:

(Based on the Native American tradition and my personal experiences:) Mild Euphoria, Mood Lift, Sedating on the nerves, Blissful on the mind, Body relaxation, Insomnia.
