List Of Caffeine Containing Plants


star botanicals
Kratom, Plants, Seeds, Oneirogens, & Ethnobotancials!

        Just about everyone appreciates the lifting energetic vibes induced by a good Caffeine fix. The thing that a lot of people don't realize is that it's in a lot more plants that just Coffee and tea. Each one of these different herbals contains its own unique phytochemicals. This makes them all unique in their own way when it comes to the psychoactive effects that they produce. Experience reports from each individual botanical demonstrate this clearly.


Obtaining this naturally occurring stimulant from nature rather than energy drinks etc, is a great way to cut back on sugar and other additives which may be harmful to your health. The natural sources also have other beneficial qualities. The following can even be made into tinctures and infusions for therapeutic practices. Some have even been used in ceremonies by the Native Americans.

Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria)
Ilex vomitoria

         Not many people have ever heard of the Yaupon Holly. The Native Americans are more than familiar with it though. They would use both the leaves and stems to make a tea. This drink was consumed ceremonially, and for purification. The use of such plants as medicine and psychoactive sacraments is innate in their culture. It's very hard to find in shops though. I will write up a full page on this in due time ( this site is very large and a lot of work to maintain and add content too ). If you're looking to Purchase Yaupon Holly (Ilex vomitoria) seeds you can.

Kola Nut
Kola Nut

                  This is another rare plant that mostly everyone is not familiar with. Everyone is familiar with the popular soft drink known as Coca cola ( at least in the west ). Kola Nut was actually the original source of both caffeine and flavor in this popular beverage. That was in the days when it was still being combined with the alkaloid called Cocaine which was extracted from Coca leaves. Multiple African cultures use the plant for various things including medicine, and religious practices. It was an industrial staple and supported economies in Africa until they stopped using it.


Yerba Mate
Yerba Gourd

         Yerba Mate use has roots far back in history. It was brought to the world by the Guarani Indians of South America. There's something about Yerba Mate that leaves you with a less jittery form of energy than Coffee. It has a unique flavor and aroma that's much different from others. Some like to add creme or mix it with other herbs for synergistic properties and flavor. It has a taste that is un-like that of anything else I've tried. Some claim that it's as taste as cappacino but totally different. I had a friend who made edibles out of it and called them "tweak-cakes". lol The idea is sort of like an energy drink only in the form of food, a "breakfast of champions" so to speak.


Guarana
Guarana beans

          Guarana is a little more well known than the previous botanicals mentioned above. It's a shrub from Brazil and Uruguay. It actually has several potential medicinal applications including as possible aid for headaches and migraines, to tone, balance, and protect the heart, cleanse blood, and reduce blood clots. It's something that I will use instead of Mitragyna speciosa if I want energy without the euphoria. I've also noticed that it can enhance certain sexual organs [ ahem ]... thus, "getting the blood flowing better" ;) You see it sold in little packets at the gas stations, mixed with tons of other herbs... I think it's like a natural version of "viagra" personally. It works better to me than most energy drinks but that's my opinion. You can Buy Guarana here. Proceeds support me financially.

Cacao ( Chocolate )
cocao

      Many people are un-aware that Cacao ( chocolate ) actually contains caffeine. It's chalked full of other beneficial compounds too, assuming you're consuming quality chocolate. The closer it is to pure, the better. Cacao also contains theobromine, which is another stimulant phytochemical. Certain studies have shown that it can actually improve cardiovascular health, assuming you're not chain smoking and lying on the couch weeks at a time. :) That reminds me, citations are listed on each individual items page. I am in the process of improving content and making it a bit more FDA friendly.


I guess one of the main points of this page is that chemicals like Caffeine exist in botanicals, and they are naturally recurring. This means that plants produce a wide range of beneficial, medicinal, and psychoactive chemicals. This is something I've noticed from pulling up academic journals for ten years. You start to see patterns. Certain compounds exist not in one specific family, but in various different families and species. When you understand that these botanicals and their active constituents have been thoroughly researched by educated professionals around the globe, you can begin to understand how holistic medicine could potentially actually work.
