    regrowth study in 2019

    "You are no doubt familiar with the challenges faced by the peyote cactus both in the wild cactus populations and as a sacrament of increasingly short supply among adherents of the peyote faith. Collaborative efforts are underway to mitigate this challenge by two organizations: Cactus Conservation Institute, a 501(c)3 and Sia: The Comanche Nation Ethno-Ornithological Initiative, the Piah Puha Kahni, Mother Church of Comanche Native American Church 1918 Charter Association. Our shared goal is furthering peyote conservation by establishing a sound and reproducible methodology for cultivating peyote on a large scale. Our cultivation project is intended to produce seedlings for the eventual use as medicine for ceremonial use as well as hardened seedlings for future repopulation of wild localities that have been wiped out. Sia has many years of success in working with endangered eagle populations and eagle propagation, including pioneering innovative breeding approaches. It is the only tribal feather repository. Cactus Conservation Institute is the foremost producer of high-quality academic and field research on peyote conservation since 2004 with a focus on the Tamaulipan thornscrub, the primary habitat for peyote in the U.S. Our interests extend to greenhouse production and cultivation for ceremonial use and to appropriate reestablishment in the wild and the ways we can help existing populations recover from harvesting pressures. Our goal is to engage in reproducible, evidence-based science with studies generating peer-reviewed papers. We intend to validate a marriage of science, culture and religious aspects of the peyote cactus and show that the goals of these interests are not necessarily competitive or in conflict but can complement each other. We already have the people and the skill sets. We need your help to secure a place to perform this work. Our goal is to raise $99,000. Of these funds, approximately $55,000 will be used to purchase nine acres of land adjacent to Sia’s existing location, where research can occur and oversight will be easy to maintain. The remaining $44,000 will buy a greenhouse and supplies necessary to begin our cultivation studies. You can help us solve both the pressures placed on wild plants and the supply challenges faced by future generations of Native American Church members who choose a path of cultivation by making a tax-deductible contribution of any size, large or small. Your support is vital to achieving our goals of peyote conservation through developing sustainable harvesting management and land stewardship practices. We must succeed in our mission while wild peyote is still left in the world. If you would like to better understand why it is rapidly disappearing, please visit our website and that of Sia The Comanche Nation Ethno Ornithological Initiative." https://au.gofundme.com/f/save-peyote

    What did you do in your sacred garden today?

    Did a bunch of micrografts with mixed trich seed to practice with a new set up before I start chopping up arios and lophs. Ended up doing a few cauliflower anyway because I couldn't help myself.

    Lophophora any variety

    Hey George, there are a lot of videos on that channel. Can you suggest any to prioritise for translation?
  5. So your intention is to answer these questions? 'I wonder what kind of damage was done from these meds? what are the mechanics behind this process of healing?' If so, specifying the type of medication is probably a good place to start.

    Lophophora any variety

    Adam Hag and Samyod Chobmark on Facebook have some nice stuff. Can you share the articles you're thinking of basing your method on?
  7. Hey DJ, Sorry to hear you’ve had a rough time. I don’t want to assume I know what you’re going through, but I do know anecdotally of a few people who have struggled with mental health issues that seem to have been exacerbated by intensive use of psychedelics. I think drawing your attention to the benefits of the experience, rather than the harms, might be a good way of getting something of value from it. Writing things down can be a good way to start this process, and if you’re comfortable sharing these reflections here or elsewhere it gives other people an opportunity to learn from your experience. Maybe readers will have some insights and support for you too

    Psychoactive Acacia Annotated Bibliography

    Cheers sagi, feel free to use the template if it suits. I think it is a great tool for collaborative research, just a matter of choosing an interesting topic and having people willing to contribute. I rekon the psychoactive Acacia topic is interesting but haven't had any contributions so far. Maybe I should promote it on FB...

    What did you do in your sacred garden today?

    Returned home after being away longer than planned. A few dead plants, a few sad plants, but on the upside some micro butt grafts seem to have taken which I didn't expect.

    In-situ Lophophora conservation

    I posted the other day about an episode of The Psychedelic Salon podcast that contained an interview with Keeper Trout. I was surprised to hear KT is an advocate for the reintroduction of cultivated Lophophora to some areas. I had the understanding that reintroducing cultivated plants was typically a bad idea, but KT is definitely an authority on the subject so I did a bit of a review of the literature. I couldn’t find much relevant material, at least using the search terms ‘conservation’ and ‘reintroduction’ alongside 'Lophophora' and 'Peyote' in Google Scholar. The one relevant paper I did find is here https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.04.03.023515v1.full.pdf This paper implies that the ultimate goal of Lophophora conservation is to reintroduce plants to their native habitat, but that more data is needed before moving forward with this to determine appropriate locations and the potential impact. I recently came across this campaign in the Loph Growers Worldwide Facebook group https://www.gofundme.com/f/save-peyote?pc=fb_co_campmgmtbnr_w&rcid=r01-158775808205-d7938f80697644a7&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=p_lico%2Bbanner&fbclid=IwAR3cGO36eTjTAb2ZeMaC6BTEVZtwO_7qROshlooyxc7uvISHqDLAA0OeKA0 The campaign aims to cultivate Lophophora, both to satisfy a demand that is troubling in-situ populations and to reintroduce in-situ. The Cactus Conservation Institute and Sia: The Comanche Nation Ethno-Ornithological Initiative, the Piah Puha Kahni, Mother Church of Comanche Native American Church 1918 Charter Association. I’m really interested in in-situ reintroduction of Lophophora. If anyone can suggest further resources so that I can learn more about it, please hook me up!
  12. Like many people at the moment, I have some extra time on my hands. I’ve come up with an idea for a collaborative project that I hope some of you clever SABers might be interested in. The project aims to create a working, annotated bibliography on psychoactive Acacia. Basically, the aim is to document and compile relevant evidence that could be useful for future research and the ethnobotanical community. This is the document we will be working on: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1_OKwpo6q__Dlfr_dsLavAoKH1ycb0cv5oDSII1okVN8/edit?usp=sharing For all you lazy click hoarders, here is the text explaining the project and how to participate that is provided at the link. What is an annotated bibliography? An annotated bibliography takes a similar form to a reference list, but includes extra information. Alongside a list of sources, an annotated bibliography provides brief text descriptions of each source. The descriptive text should aim to summarise the content of each source and reflect on its relationship to the topic of the annotated bibliography. What is the topic? The topic of this annotated bibliography is psychoactive Acacia. This includes, but is not limited to Acacia acuminata, Acacia maidenii, Acacia obtusfolia, etc. Sources do not need to discuss Acacia psychoactivity specifically. What is our aim? To compile a working, comprehensive list of evidence pertaining to psychoactive Acacia capable of contributing to future research. Such research may concern ecology, harm reduction, economics, politics and other contexts. What should you do? In the first table below: · Provide your name or alias. · Identify the Acacia sp. addressed by the source. · Provide a full reference for each source according to APA referencing style. · Provide a link to the source, where possible. · Provide a concise summary of the content of the source. What was the source about? · Provide a brief reflective commentary on the source. How is the source relevant to the topic of psychoactive Acacia? How many citations has the source received? Do you consider the source to be of good quality? Why/why not? · Place your annotation row in alphabetical order (A-Z) of the first author’s surname. Sound like too much hard work? That’s okay! You can still contribute by suggesting sources to review. At the bottom of this document there is an additional table listing sources you would like to see annotated but don’t have time to annotate yourself. At a minimum, please include a link in this table. Ideally, you will provide a reference in APA format, too. If you have any questions, would like to contribute, or need help accessing a source, please get in touch.

    I recently listened to this interview with Keeper Trout. Skip the first 6 minutes or so for some interesting reflection on the Shulgin archives and Loph history/conservation. https://psychedelicsalon.com/salon2-033-the-psychedelic-archives-of-keeper-trout/ Damn KT gives me a mass cactus boner. Anyone got more lecture/interview content from him?

    Trip sitting search terms

    Hey sagi, no, we are just manually scraping the data for now. We are using Google as a search engine, with search terms like 'site:https://www.shroomery.org/forums/ "trip sit"'.

    Trip sitting search terms

    You're right Freakosystem, that's a good strategy for finding new terms and we will definitely consider additions to our list as we revise the data set.
