          Ok we all love Kratom right? Well then, you're going to love what I have to tell you about Picralima nitida ( Akuamma seed ). The active phytochemicals in Kratom are most notably mitragynine and others which are closely related to it. This is what gives it its pharmacological and recreational value, right? Well it turns out this little known plant called "Akuamma" may offer us some of the same possibilities that Kratom can. This is because it contains “akuammine”, which I will talk more about in the next paragraph. I predict that it becomes incredibly popular and would like to do everything in my power to keep it legal.


Akuammine is an indole alkaloid also known as vincamajoridine. Its structure is closely related to that of Yohimbine and mitragynine. If you're not familiar with Yohimbe, then this is a good time to learn that it too, is closely related to mitragynine phytochemically, and very similar to Kratom generally. Its a tree bark, while Akuamma is a seed. Both are also very similar to Voacanga and its constituents. This is something I've noticed while doing my research for this blog. The phytochemical research suggest the following potential benefits and medicinal properties: anti-bacterial, antimalarial, lowing blood glucose activity, as an opioid antagonist, and much more. Be careful with these though as they are no joke.


One thing I've noticed over the years of doing academic research via scholarly journals is that these plants [ ethnobotanicals ] share many of the same universal blue-prints for the worlds most important pharmacological chemicals. So the good news is there are other plants out there that can pretty much offer the same potential benefits, at least according to the research. Obviously there's nothing that can replace Kratom but this does give us hope, while something like prohibition is a dark and ignorant reality that we must face from time to time until we correct the issue legally. I bet there are more useful plants out there that we don't even know about yet. It's sad to think of some going extinct while no one knows about them.


I think it's very important for marketers such as myself to be careful how we write our content, especially with something like Akuamma. We need to be ethical, moral, avoid making claims ( which unintentionally happens on occasion ), and use citations. When, or if, shops and writers abuse their rights and fail to inform people of potential dangers including interactions, possible allergies, etc, then they give law makers an excuse to take things away from the responsible. Not only do we need to go about this in a scientific and ethical way, but we need to go about it in a legal activist fashion as well. Spread the word, get involved, and exercise your ability to be heard. Do it in a way where no one will have an excuse to get upset.


How is Akuamma seed used? The seeds are typically powdered, and added to capsules, made into tinctures, or extracts. Now, from my personal experience, I prefer a tincture of this stuff. A tincture is just a liquid extract made using high proof alcohol. If you want something to kick in fast, and don't want a stomach full of plant material, then go with the tincture. I like to add Ginger root with certain things because it's believed to stimulate digestion. In the past ten years of reading scholarly journals though I can tell you to please be careful about blindling mixing things, herbal or pharmaceutical. Talk with a trained health care provider before even considering. I think one day down the road, more botanicals will pop up in the eye of the main-stream which also share nearly identical phytochemicals.


Because of how quickly and abundantly nature creates entire fields of pharmacological drugs every day, its apparent that medicine need not ever be a struggle for human kind ( in my opinion ). The notion of prohibiting nature in any fashion seems as evil as it does absurd. Phytochemistry is science, and it backs up fact that plant based medicine creates pharmacology! For anyone who believes or partakes in its traditional use, they personally have experienced the potential. In Germany, they have embraced this truth by using herbal medicine in their hospitals! THAT IS VERY COOL! Could you imagine being offered Akuamma at the hospital?


As one final note to all my fans out there, I just wanted to let you all know that i'm going to be adding a lot more oneirogens to Botanical Guides. You can expect the worlds largest oneirogen library to be available and remain available for free until the end of time. Please like, comment, and share my work to show your appreciation and support.
