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. I have had much success with this.
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 the potion, creating the "Elixir of the Sun."

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
Aside from its psychoactive properties, it may also offers medicinal properties with no tripped out effects. The key to all medicine is the preparation and dosage. I believe that this plant can literally go both ways. While it does offer some rather interesting psychoactive effects, they 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.
Perhaps it's possible that these side effects are likely due to im-proper 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.
I think it would make a fine medicine after condcuting much research. You can find facts regarding the properties from scholarly sources too. 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, maybe it could make an effective herbal remedy for conditions that require better blood flow. ( my opinion ) This is because vasodialators cause blood vessels to widen.
I use it as a supplement to aid in the reccollection of dreams. When I do this, I use way less than that the amount consumed for any psychoactive effects.
