  1. The major problem with the bill is that any product is legal to market if prooven safe at a cost of approx $3,000000. This prohibitive testing expense means ony products with a lucrative market will be approved, such as potent and addictive research chemicals. No company is going to invest 3 million into legalizing Calea or Hemia or Cancer bush or Inebriating mint. The market is not there to recoup the investment. So we loose all these SAFE herbs that have been used safely for thousands of years and in their place get a monoply marketing a line of patentable research chemicals. This is so shit. Why not just place anything that has always been legal, has been in the food chain for thousands of years and has ever caused harm automatically in the approved catergory. It would be easy enough to remove any individual herb that is causing problems, say like Yohimbe and scedule it as a prescription medicine or something like Datura as a poison. Herbs are not like research chemicals that can be tweaked to get around laws. To make matters worse the Government are now watching how the legal synthetic cannabinoid market plays out as a model for natural cannabis. So all the health problems caused by these untested research chemicals will be considered to be the same for natural weed and used as reason not to legalize. Watch out aussies, your herbs are next! You guys need to do something to protect your herbs. But Im not sure what? Does anyone have any ideas? What about for NZ? Or is it too late for us? How much would it cost to take it to the high court if one were to import something like Calea seeds to deliberatly be seized, then take it to the high court? 100K?
  2. In the Netherlands they sell mushroom stopper supplements. They contain Valerian, Dextrose and vitamin C if I remember correctly. They do not stop the trip, but combined with a good hit of placebo are said to knock it down a notch and help the tripper relax. I would expect a similar formula would work fairly good for pot too.
  3. The new psyhoactive substances bill which legalizes and regulates synthetic cannabinoids in New Zealand, but bans all psychoactive substances unless lisenced has resulted in the first seizure of imported calea zacatechichi seeds as a psychoactive substance under the bill by NZ customs. Note Calea is a basic import with MAF. How a non-psychoactive seed thats needs to be planted, cultivated, harvested, dried, processed to then possibly have a mild psychoactive effect can be classified as a psychoactive substance makes no sence. If this is logic correct, then all plants are now illegal as all plants are psychoactive substances. This bill also technically bans yoga and meditation equipment as devices capable of inducing a psychoactive effect. Herbal remedies are exempt from the bill. Calea is also employed by the Chontal people as a herbal remedy against gastrointestinal disorders, and is used as an appetizer, cathartic, anti-dysentery remedy, and as a fever-reducing agent. At this stage it appears the difference between herbal remedy and psychoactive substance is decided by the race of the people who traditionally used the remedy. Apparently Mexican medicine is not accepted as part of the recognized pharmocopedia. That is racism and in my opinion a breach of human rights..
  4. I never thought much of dried wild lettuce leaves, but this year I have so much coming up in the garden that I have been experimenting with the fresh herb. I have been cutting the roots off and boiling up the whole fresh plant, both stem and leaves, to make a strong tea. I add a little grapefruit juice to the boiling water, simmer for 20mins, strain and drink. Tastes similar to poppy tea and has a sedative effect as good as Zopiclone for me. A fantastic sleep and waking up feeling refreshed. This must be a really high dose, especially compared to what people are generally consuming in tea, smokes and capsules. But its quite drinkable (I enjoy herbal brews) and no negative side effects have been noted, quite the opposite, it feels really healthy. I should really weigh it but been a busy few weeks. I would be interested to try it in a juicer, hence avoiding heat which could lower potency.
  5. ESR testing of Craze and Detonate in NZ tested positive for amphetamines. This looks to me like DMAA, where it was claimed to exist in Geranium oil. This bunch of PEAs are claimed to exist in Drenbonium flowers. But the source is a chinese research chemical supplier. Selling this chemical (or combination of chemicals) as Drenbonium extract. I believe DMAA has now been shown not to exist in nature. So Drenbonium is the replacement. Go figure.
  6. Very easy to grow people. I sprinkled some seed from the local indian grocer around the garden, then forgot about it. Well my garden filled up with these strange podded plants, I had to do an online search to identify them. Anyway, one pod has lots of seeds, so a good yeild and nice to know I know have fresh, organic seed for max potency. For those using seed instead of oil, you need to chew the seed to release the oil. Taste is slightly nauseating but not too bad. A couple of scooped tsp of seeds seems to do the trick, I believe the seed is approx 50% oil.
  7. A large pinch was quidded for 20mins. Half an hr later 3 cones were smoked in a waterpipe. This resulted in an altered headspace. Another 1/2 hr later 2 cones of weed are smoked. The effect of the weed is altered. A few days later a brew is made using 3 gram. This hits with a strong wave. A little dizzy and nauseas. Some weed kills nausea. Certainly active but hard to explain. A few days later a brew is made using 5 gram. More water is used to weaken taste and brew is drunk slowly. This works to avoid nausea. Effects feel similar to Kratom for want of a better description. I feel stimulated and motivated, similar to Kratom rather than like say a straight stimulant like caffeine or ephedra. My vision of the sky is enhanced without hallucinations.Some mild euphoria. Body numbness is very noticable but its hard to say if this is due to MU activity or not at this dosage, although some itching on the nose is a positive sign. Will keep experimenting.
  8. Thought this one may be of interest to some of you Aussies ;) I have started experimenting with this tree. I have so far tried a quid, smoked some cones and brewed a tea. It is certainly active but I am yet to find words to explain the effect, Its a stimulant, anti-inflamitory and inebrient. I will start experimenting with higher dosage and report back. Here is my suppliers description of Combretum. Sakae Naa (Combretum quadrangulare) is a small tree of the family Combretaceae which grows up to 10m high. The tree grows along the rivers, or in open and wet places in southeast Asia. Combretum leaf is smoked or chewed as a Kratom substitute by the people of South Thailand, Laos and Myanmar, since Kratom use is now prohibited there. It is said that the Combretum quadrangulare contains many precious and rare substances. In some parts of the world it is used as a traditional herbal remedy to help cure sexual diseases or to kill parasitic worms in the human body, and some indigenous people of southeast Asia believe the Combretum tree has the powers of white magic. You rarely find Combretum leaf at the markets as it is mostly only used locally. There are not many suppliers in the world who are offering Combretum leaf, not even in origin countries, since farmers tend to pick it for themselves.
  9. Too true, I started out with one of these, it was great for a while until a storm destroyed it. Broke my heart to come home to find my 6ft Salvias smashed into lots of small pieces.(made lots of cuttings though). I ended up going down to the local hardware store and for $20 they gave me a big stack of corrogated plastic top packing sheets. These are the top sheet of the stack and are often slightly damaged. I just used my jigsaw to cut out any damage and rivet the pieces back together. I collected treated wood from skip bins and built a huge permanent solid glass house. Best move I ever made. My Salvia's love it and are booming. These hardware store glass houses really are a boy doing a mans job. I highly recomend any serious growers just make your own from scratch.
  10. Five new indolizidine alkaloids, grandisines C, D, E, F, and G (4−8), and one known indolizidine alkaloid, (−)-isoelaeocarpiline (3), were isolated from the leaves of Elaeocarpus grandis and their structures determined by 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopy. Grandisine C (4) is isomeric with the known compound rudrakine (1). The absolute configuration of grandisine D (5) was deduced by its conversion to (−)-isoelaeocarpiline. Grandisine E (6) contains a novel tetracyclic ring system. Grandisine F (7) is the 14-amino analogue of grandisine C. Grandisine G (8) contains the novel combination of a piperidine attached to an indolizidine. Grandisines C, D, F, and G and (−)-isoelaeocarpiline showed receptor binding affinity for the human δ-opioid receptor with IC50 values of 14.6, 1.65, 1.55, 75.4, and 9.9 μM, respectively. Attached image is grandisine B. I believe this is grown in Australia for its edible fruit? Anyone tried? Anyone have access to material? Edit: Some more info here:
  11. Yeah, then came the "lets just sell 5X labeled as 200X" people. Due to the strange working nature of Sally D, people can get away with daylight robbery.
  12. I think an issue is packaging on the same bench. Was informed about a batch of AM-2201 laced Damiana that was tested and found to contain one part per million JWH-018. One can only imagine how often this sort of practice occurs.
  13. Its certainly a strange piece of legislation. What confuses me is whether the mongrels can apply it to natural substances? Obviously the spirit of the law is to catch new designer drugs. The only cases I am aware of involve CP47,497, Methylone and other synthetic designer drugs. Some goofball at MOH tried to claim HBWR seeds were an analogue of LSD, but the fact they are intended for cultivation put an end to that. If they can in fact apply it to naturally occurring alkaloids, one would assume most legal highs, which contain synephrine, chocamine, hordinine, PEA etc as well as many many common foods and supplements including oranges, cheese, chocolate, 5HTP, L-Tryptophan are class c controlled substances. How can HBWR be any more illegal to put in a capsule than 5HTP or Synephrine? It seems to me what they are trying to do is make it illegal to get high by simply banning everything, then very selectively enforcing the law as it suits them. Oh well, time to start researching prescription medicine analogues ;)
  14. Its the laws fault. They have been banning the more fun ones since the 1930s. Whats left are for the most part mild, toxic or take considerable effort to unlock. Kratom was a good one for a while but they got it. LSA seeds, DMT carriers, Ephedra, Khat, Weed, Shrooms, Poppies . . . they got them all. Whats left that really works . . . that really gives a pronounced effect without being overly toxic (like say Datura)? I know some people are special and claim to get an MDMA like effect from Ginseng or Maca or whatever, but for 99% of researchers this is not the reality. Plenty of useful plants that are still legal, things like Coffee and Guarana to wake up or Calea for dreaming, but what is there that gives a strong euphoria or altered state that is accessible to the average researcher and still legal? Not much. Perhaps the future will see the discovery of herbal isolates that work? Or combination of these with enzyme inhibitors. Kind of like Ayahuasca, I mean if one was to try a DMT carrier on its own without MAO inhibition they would likely write it off as shit too. Perhaps there are other combos still awaiting discovery?
  15. I use Neem on mine, not specifically for aphids, but critters in general, apply it after the sun goes down a few night in a row, making sure to also spray the underside of the leaves. The plants don,t seem to mind, just be sure to leave it a couple of weeks before harvesting.
