Passion flower ( Passiflora incarnata ) is a majestic perennial vine with tripped out looking aromatic flowers. The energy of the plant will lure you to its presence. It's been used by many cultures, in many ways, and for many purposes. There is scientific knowledge regarding how the herb is believed to work. Phytochemist are more than familiar with several phytochemicals it creates, and their magnificently complex symbiotic properties. They are the reason human beings believe this flower to have so many health related benefits. The first time I tried it, I was overwhelmed with tranquility and mood elevation.

MAOI Phytochemicals


Passion Flower contains naturally occurring MAOI's that are thought to interact with and increase the effects of psychoactive plants and substances. Just like B. Caapi Vine, it too contains the same key phytochemicals which are needed to make the traditional Ayauasca brew of the Amazon. Like the Caapi vine, as well as Syrian Rue, it contains a series of harmaline alkaloids. Many people are not aware of this chemical recurrence existing in multiple sources throughout nature. Nutmeg, Cinnamon, and Sassafras all share phytochemicals. All possess the same and unique arrays of chemicals, each of which has its own range of benefits and properties. This can be backed up via academic journals, and I encourage anyone to check my citations.



Preparation And Chemistry


Passion flower tea is very popular across the world today. The active harmaline alkaloids ( sacred maoi sacraments ) in the herb are easily soluble in water. For future reference you should know that some plants need to be made into a tincture to be made effective due to the fact that their active components are not always soluble in water. This is why herbalist have come up with tinctures. The alcohol used can dissolve and extract a wide range of phytochemicals which may be polar or non-polar. It allows us to grab both sides of the spectrum to get all the benefits possible out of the mediine. I have consumed a tea made out of the leaves and flowers and it seemed to work great for me ! Remember, there is a science to herbalism, a.k.a. preparing Spagyrics, teas, tinctures, and decoctions


European literature recommends it primarily for anti-anxiety treatment. Native Americans have been very fond of Passion Flower for ages. The Cherokee used it in religious ceremonies, which indicates further "metaphysical value". It's considered good for muscle spasms by modern herbalists, headaches and tension. It's very comforting after a long days work. I find it more approrpiate than beer, but that's me. One word of caution though, passion flower can interact with certain drugs. Certain combinations can be dangerous so ask your healthcare provider before use, especially if you are consuming prescription medications.


I've used Passion Flower for many years and it's one of my favorites. It's calming effects have never let me down. I especially appreciate its oneirogenic properties(my belief) and tension relieving benefits. Oneirogens are plants that are believed to stimulate your dream life. I postulate its use for dream enhancement due to the fact that the MAOI's present in the plant are the same ones used to allow the body to digest a neurochemical found in Chacruna, used in Ayahuasa. It's associated with dreams and spirituality in lore and science. I had a really intense lucid dream one night after having a cup before bed. I saw colors and complex geometric patterns in the dream. You too can discover a whole new level of inner peace and lucidity in your life. I give this herb an A+ rating.
