  1. A fantastic and highly intriguing lecture by Julian Palmer.
  2. Good question. I'm sure there would be a number of online Ethnobotanical/pharmacology journals, so I'll see what I can find and post some links in here if I source any decent ones!
  3. Some extremely intriguing and promising results on the pharmacological evaluation of Salvia apiana. I am very eager to conduct an ethanolic extract on some white sage leaves as soon as I can acquire enough material in order to bioassay the extract and take note of any potential psychoactivity. As from what this data postulates, it may very well be an effective analgesic and anxiolytic compound. Abstract: "Salvia apiana (white sage, Lamiaceae family) plant is native to southern California and parts of Mexico. Some Native American tribes local to this region consider S. apiana to be sacred and burn the leaves as incense for purification ceremonies. The plant has been used to treat sore throats, coughs, chest colds, upper respiratory infections and poison oak rashes. The aqueous ethanolic extract of S. apiana showed moderate CB1 activity (58.3% displacement). Chromatographic purification of the ethanolic extract on silica gel column led to isolation of nine compounds: rosmadial (I), carnosol (II), 16-hydroxycarnosol (III), sageone (IV), cirsimaritin (V), salvigenin (VI), oleanolic acid (VII), 3β,28-dihydroxy-urs-12-ene (VIII), and ursolic acid (IX). The structures of the isolated compounds were determined by their 1D, 2D NMR and MS spectral data. All the fractions and isolated compounds were tested for cannabinoid and opioid receptor binding." https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5505801/

    Looking to buy ephedra

    Yep, they certainly aren't the easiest to germinate. Although with the right tek and conditions, I'm sure it would be possible!
  5. Hey guys and girls! I am currently hunting around for some A. simplicifolia seeds, as well as a L. williamsii graft, preferably on a trich of some sort but I am open to whatever is available really. Cheers!

    After some Phalaris Aquatica seeds

    Hey dude, checkout eBay as I have recently purchased some through there! I'll grab the link for ya, while they may come from France and risk not making it through customs/biosecurity, the price is fairly cheap! https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/80-graines-ALPISTE-AQUATIQUE-Phalaris-Aquatica-G998-BULBOUS-CANARY-GRASS-SEEDS/182462991187?hash=item2a7ba44b53:g:IAkAAOxyDgRQ9efS:rk:1:pf:0

    Meet up: Perth

    Likewise with not making it to the meet. My 6wk old baby was up screaming all night and my partner was absolutely buggered so I had to stay back to help out around the house and with looking after me daughter... I feel horrible saying that I'll be somewhere then not making it! Anyhow.. to make up for not attending the meet I would love to do an online giveaway to those interested in some seed packs that I prepared for the meet last weekend! I will be giving away and posting out: - 3x packs of Mitragyna hirsuta seeds - 3x packs of Desmodium gangeticum seeds - A pack of SAB Acacia acuminata 'broad leaf' seeds - A pack of SAB Heimia salicifolia seeds - 3x packs of Sida cordifolia seeds I have also created a lovely legal pain relief and potent anxiolytic herbal formula using a 3:1 ratio of Mitragyna hirsuta and Mitragyna javanica powder. I will make up about 4x 20 cap sample packs to giveaway to those who may be interested! Flick me a PM and we can discuss it further if anyone is interested in any of these listings. I will edit this post as things are taken, so people will know what is left. I am also DEFINITELY keen on this camping trip you're planning @Gimli
  10. A couple of amazing posts again dude!! I look forward to having a read through them both this evening, love your work mate!

    Meet up: Perth

    Sweet!! I'm definitely keen to get up there and put a few names to faces! I'll go through the collection to see what live plants I'll be able to share around with others but I'll certainly have some interesting seeds to bring up and share! Looking forward to it!
  12. Absolutely looove your posts brother!! Proanthocyanidins have also got some major anticancer properties and appear to be getting more 'promising' attention thesedays within the field of research, in regards to their potential for treating multiple types of cancers. That is also a DAMN fine harvest you've got there dude haha, living entirely off the land is a goal I am also aiming to achieve by the end of the year!

    Lion's Mane

    Likewise with the spawn, I have currently just 'snuck' through some rye grain spawn from Italy that I'll get colonizing onto some agar to clean up but once everything has been sterilized I'd be happy to part with some slants or cultures. I'll keep an eye on this thread and flick another comment up when things are ready!
