Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) is a member of the Coffee tree family. This plant contains many of the same alkaloids found in Chocolate and a series of alkaloids that effect the human opioid receptors.
FeverFew (Tanacetum parthenium)
Feverfew literally contains small amounts of melatonin, and other medicinal chemicals. It's used to treat fevers, prevent migraines, and for much more. Learn more by clicking the read more button below.
This plant is considered a sacred holy sacrament by many cultures, including the Buddhist. It's known by a number of names including
Indian Lilly, or Bean of India. It possesses great significance in Eastern religions. Apart
from its majestic beauty, the famous water lilly flower is capable of inducing profound and mystical effects.
It's one of the world's most celebrated
flowers, often used with meditation and other practices involving the third eye, or "crown chakra". All parts of the plant are used for their astringent, cardiotonic, febrifuge,
hypotensive, resolvent, stomachic, styptic, tonic and vasodilator, cancer fighting, and other miscellaneous
healing properties, making it more than just a psychoactive treat, but also a medicine..
The Pink Lotus, and others in its family have been consumed in different fashions. It's very common to make it into a tea, although I think a tincture works much better for inducing a
feeling of joy, ecstasy , and bliss that permeates the mind and body. The flower was
immortalized in Homer's The Odyssey, in which Ulysses and his crew come ashore on the
Island of the lilly-Eaters. The parts that form at the bottom of the plant in the winter
were and are commonly used as food my Native American tribes and in Japan. This is all solid evidence that it can be eaten for its psychoactive properties as well. On the show "Sacred Weeds" two test subjects eat some in order to become inebriated.
Growing Nelumbo nucifera
Growing it from seed is done in a very different fashion than most other plants because it thrives in water. File down one side of the seed with sand
paper until there is a small amount of white color showing and place the seed in water.
They should swell over the next few days and sprout within a week, growing quickly for the
next couple of weeks.
Your Nelumbo nucifera sprouts can survive for about a month in just water. What you want to do is collect some good compost that you grow your other plants with and place it in the bottom of a tank or aquarium to feed the pink lilly. Cultivate it
in a pot with plenty of room for root growth below and around the seed (at least 4 inches)
and place in water with the top of the pot between 12 and 18 inches below the surface of
the water. This can be done by setting the pot on a pile of sticks or something of the nature. You'll need to anchor the soil with some rocks so that it doesn't spread all around in the water.
Leaves will appear within a month and the really cool tops should bloom
in the second growing season. It may sound difficult, but plants that thrive in natural hydroponic situations are among the most easy to cultivate in the world.
The Color Pink & Its Symbolism
I'd like to talk a little bit about the symbolism of the different
colored petals. See, colors have different effects on human psychology and behavior. This may sound like pseudoscience but Carl Jung, the famous Swiss psychology, is well known for his interest in the phenomenon, and hes not alone in the scientific community on this one. Shamans have also noted that the color of plants indicates their properties and applications, as well as alchemist.
In a sense, colors communicate very important psychological, and spiritual
lessons, and can be thought of as the hieroglyphics of reality.. All the prisms of the light represent lessons towards becoming "of the light".
So when we look at the different colored varieties of the lotus family, we can see that the pink lotus represents universal love, innocence, femininity, and playfulness. I actually did a talk show episode on this topic with the shows co-host. Here is the link so you can listen ( please subscribe! ) The Psychonaut Hour - Color Psychology Episode.
