  1. Hey guys,

     

    I've been bored at work so I decided to put together a spreadsheet listing frost/cold hardiness for the most commonly discussed Ethnobotanical plants on SAB

     

    Thought I would share it here in-case it's useful to anyone else.

     

    The info was gathered from and cross referenced using multiple online sources and personal reports. Obviously there are always abnormalities and outliers, but might be helpful as a guide

     

    This is by no means a comprehensive list and still a work in progress. I also haven't included cacti. I may get around to that eventually. My cacti have all been exposed to frosts and -6c temps and survived so I don't think it's as pertinent.

     

    If anyone has any first hand experience that differs from what's listed, or any others I should add to the list, feel free to chime in!

  2. Somewhat related, but is there any evidence that using incense indoors in confined rooms is harmful to humans/pets?

    I love incense but I'm always weary of using it excessively


  3. I was wondering this too, there's very rarely such thing as a "free lunch" in pharmacology, particularly when dealing with GABA

    That said, I respect the work of Prof. David Nutt a lot, so it's going to be interesting to watch this all unfold

    If it does what he says it's going to do, I don't think it's a stretch to say it's going to be revolutionary


  4. Thought some of you guys might be interested in this

     

    I remember reading about this a few years ago when it was in it's infancy, looks like it may be hitting the shelves in the next few years.

     

    As someone who's pretty sensitive to alcohol, particularly the negative side effects, I'd love to give this stuff a try

  5. I was cleaning up and noticed that a plant I thought had died had sprouted again, however the label has faded in the sun and is now unreadable

    I believe it may be an old Calea Zacatechichi plant that I moved when it died last year (or so I thought)

     

    What do you guys think?

  6. I did some research on this myself a few years ago but wasn't able to find a lot..

     

    I did find this paper from 2012, but it's pay-walled and I couldn't find a free version

    We may not have been directly impacted, but secondary effects (climate change, sea level rise, etc) would have almost certainly affected us IMO
