Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, nor any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, nor the earth beneath. Thou shalt not bow down thyselves to them, nor serve them. For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

Sinicuichi has a history of use dating back to the Aztecs. The effect are euphoric with a brightening and yellowing of vision, hence the name. It's been believed that it gives the ability to recall past events with great clarity. Because of this, I became interested in using it to stimulate recalling dreams every morning but after reading some peer reviewed journals, I am unsure that would be safe. The fact that the Aztecs ued it makes it off-putting to me. You gotta judge a tree by its fruit!
Religious Or Spiritual Use
The use of Sinicuichi for shamanic purposes by native peoples of Central America and Mexico has been well documented. Some of the effects may include the experience of a deep sense of calmness and unity, and the ability to recall the past, even prenatal events, with great clarity. In the method of preparation commonly used, fresh leaves are collected, and allowed to wilt. The leaves are put into a cup or jar, cool water added, and placed in the sun to brew and ferment for at least 24 hours. It is said that during the fermentation process, the knowledge of the sun is embedded into it, creating the "Elixir of the Sun." While plants in general are not forbidden by scripture, consider the rules and avoid false doctrines which are often associated with certain things that God has made, such as plants.
Matthew 7:17 “Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.”
Heimia salicifolia is not believed to be addictive. Below are a list of effects that it is CLAIMED to induce. Sometimes people market things in misleading and inappropriate and even dangerous ways. I am here to give it to you straight. I don't condemn all plants but I warn about one's that may be toxic, or have be accursed due to origins from occultic cultures. ( Honestly, this stuff isn't appearling to me. I just get a "blah" vibe from it. It seems some of the constituents it produces may have toxic effects and the Aztecs used it. You also have to consider sourcing, and if you can trust random vendors on the internet to sell you the correct plant material and not some random weed. It's also not very popular.
Bouncing Bear Botanicals claimed that sinicuichi had the following effects:
Auditory (sounds may seem distant)
Yellowed field of vision
Drowsiness or sedation
Mild intoxication; giddiness
Darkening of vision
Improved memory function
Dilation of coronary vessels
Inhibition of acetylcholine (Debated)
Note: acetylcholine inhibition is also the goal of certain pharmaceuticals aimed to treat Mysthenia Gravis
Reduction of blood pressure
Vertine, also known as cryogenine, is regarded as the primary psychoactive component and is also generally the most abundant constituent of alkaloidal extracts. Clinically demonstrated effects include anticholinergic, anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, hyperglycemic, hypotensive, sedative, tranquilizer, and vasodilator activity.
Lythrine, the third most abundant alkaloid, has been found to have diuretic activity.
Heimidine, A minor alkaloid, has been found to have anti-inflammatory activity.
Lyfoline, the second most abundant alkaloid.
Lythridine, a minor alkaloid
Sometimes plants are mislabeled. Often times dilerants are mismarketed as psychedelics, or things which really don't produce any effects are marketed as "psychoactive". Sometimes people just want to make a sale, and this can be dangerous. The effects have often been reported to be acomapnied by some rather un-desirable side effects such as chest pains and muscle aches. This is not surprising as the Aztecs were pretty crazy mo-fo's. It also confirms my discernment that this stuff I believe is probably not meant for consumption. Although, a phytochemist could possibly freebase out some pure individual alkaloids that may show some benefit or use. I do believe though that altering God-made phytochemicals is an abomination. Extracts are questionable, but playing God is out of the question.
Perhaps it's possible that these side effects are likely due to either: the fact that maybe this stuff really isn't for human consumption, improper preparation methods or extreme dosages. Perhaps the UV rays destroy un-wanted constituents, or possibly even parasitic microbes within the plant matter. This is likely a good reason why it was traditionally made this way. Perhaps some additional ingredients to the elixir could help prevent any un-wanted side effects also, as well as a moderate dosage. Mint, Ginger, and other herbals are used to prevent nausea so they may help perfect the elixir. The idea of elixirs or infusions is combinging plants for their synergistic properties. One thing I must warn of though is the deceptive art of mixing false doctrine with the use of plants. It makes the plants look bad, but it is deceptive.
I'm not a doc or mad scientist you guys. You can find facts regarding the properties from scholarly sources too. like scholar.google.com or JSTOR.org This is because of the research conducted on the phytochemicals within the plant. You won't find much information on medicinal applications of this plant, yet I find that it may have many to offer. As far as the vasodialator properties that it possesses, fascinating. This is because vasodialators cause blood vessels to widen.
