    Torsten just posted this, please take note! Urgent harm minimisation alert! I have just been made aware that there is a cluster of poppy seed poisonings caused by Hoyts poppy seeds (from woolies). One patient who was tested was found to have little morphine but large amounts of thebaine in their blood. Hospitalised after just 120g of poppy wash. It appears toxic thebaine poppy seeds have entered the food distribution network with dire consequences. This is probably not limited to Hoyts. Please share widely.

    This is becoming a disaster, there are people in ICU and even more in emergency wards, please do not consume anything with poppy seed at the moment, even cakes etc. There are people in ICU and more turning up in emergency all the time. Thebaine poisoning is likely from all poppyseed products right now.

    Last night's episode of 7:30 presented MDMA and even (Peruvian-shamanic) ayahuasca as prospective treatments for PTSD. No psychedelic sensationalism, accusations of sexual misconduct, or financial misappropriation. I think Rick Doblin even featured for a few seconds. But no mention of MMA or the earlier 7:30 report.

    While there is still major stigma and lack of available support for people with opiate/opioid dependencies, it remains one of the options available that is affordable and keeps people away from dealers and possible legal troubles. Generally, high thebaine strains are closely protected due to patents, so it's not expected for them to enter food chains. This is why harm minimisation is so important.

    @Hekt don't order from overseas unless you fully understand the ramifications. SWIM once ordered from Spore Exchange though, and the experience was pretty good apparently. But there are enough friends here to help you out in your research. You're now sorted anyway.

    https://www.specialplants.net/shop/seeds/salvia_recognita/ SAB member Trip put me on to this professional source for the seeds -- fast international delivery (1 week or so). I set some aside from my initial order, but they're all gone now. Some of them, hopefully, to become plants. https://www.ebay.com/itm/255442627858 I'd love to try these as well. Previous attempts were blocked by PayPal but after corresponding with Canadian seller, this link (for 100 seeds) should now work for Australian customers. Seeds are from a German supplier, according to seller, who claims to have grown S. recognita from this source in past years. Seller's other listings include the word "divinorum" and they think that's why PayPal may have refused purchase before. Worth a shot, I reckon, but I can't afford to invest any more at the moment.

    I have been. On FB. You’ve engaged in some - possibly most? - of what I put to you to your credit. But my lines of questioning were less about the “#metoo” comments and associated subject matter, and more about other things which you seemed to gloss over. Things like your responsibility to participants, the image of the underground scene as shown to media, and a couple of other things which I honestly can’t be bothered trying to remember right now. I don’t know whether your deflection was even conscious let alone deliberate. But it’s *my* opinion that if you’re going to be a proponent of plant medicine and utilise the title of “inventor of Changa” (any variation thereof) then I believe that should come with some responsibilities.

    Well, if there was ever a year for pollination, this would be it. Show me a better display of flowers and I'll concede...

    Thought y’all might enjoy this interesting conversation that James W. Jesso hosted with a few of us about where the Australian psychoactive Acacia species fit into the local psychedelic scene here, and how our interactions with these species connect us to a deeper connection with the spirit of the land: https://www.jameswjesso.com/drinking-the-psychedelic-acacia-trees-of-australia-psychedelic-cafe-5/?fbclid=IwAR1goTSu03e3fP0QGs_DjGLAL3fC62K8nBkYv3Pu4MgmfLJV6CA5RqG2uv0

    The latest study Antidepressant Potential of Mesembryanthemum cordifolium Roots Assisted by Metabolomic Analysis and Virtual Screening Depression is a common mental disturbance that can be categorized as mild, moderate or severe. Mesemberine alkaloids, the main recognized phytoconstituents of some plants belonging to family Mesembryanthemaceae, are well-known as serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Therefore, the objective of this study is to evaluate the antidepressant activity of the alkaloidal fraction of Mesembryanthemum cordifolium L.f. (Aptenia cordifolia) roots, family Mesembryanthemaceae using forced swimming test, assisted by metabolomic analysis and in silico ligand-based and structure-based screening. Results showed that the alkaloidal fraction displayed an antidepressant activity superior to imipramine hydrochloride, a standard antidepressant agent. Nine alkaloids were annotated from the metabolomic analysis. Interestingly, among the dereplicated constituents, mesembrane (5) displayed strong binding affinity to SERT protein, which is slightly higher than the antidepressant drug venlafaxine. In conclusion, the alkaloidal fraction of the M. cordifolium (A. cordifolia) root exhibits an antidepressant activity which can be attributed in part to mesembrane (5).

    I think you'll find most of the internet is monitored in some form these days Dungog if you looked into it. Facebook and other social media probably gets a higher priority, but this place would certainly be a niche that gets some attention. There's no illusion of security here as this site uses HTTP by default, so everything communicated here is in unencrypted plain text. Also the server hosting the site is offshore, so anything you write on the forum or in a PM can be legally intercepted as soon as it passes through the last Aussie server. When any digital transmission leaves the country it falls outside of local telecommunication interception laws so it's up for grabs. But alas, this site is mostly concerned with uncommon & mostly unknown plants of little or no commercial value, so I can't see it being a priority. We are mostly a social network of people with a diversity of interests and most of us come here for the social aspects of the site as most of the mainstream population just doesn't get us. Just think before you type and you should be OK.

    People have been talking a lot of shit at, and about, each other lately. I'm not just annoyed by this. I'm sad. I've been here a pretty long time. Not everyone who was here when I joined has made it this far, and I really miss some of the fallen. Chances are that in 5-10 years time, some more of us won't be around here either. Our time here is finite. The time you have to enjoy the people, places, things, experiences and feelings that you love, is finite. If you like someone, be nice, lest the last words between you be angry ones that you live to regret. If you don't like someone (and no one expects you to like everyone) then I would respectfully suggest that the finite time you have left could be better spent on something, or someone else.

    if it's got methanol in it then it'll send you permanently blind and kill you, the same way people can sometimes be killed from drinking a bad batch of home brew. http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/bill-lynam-grieves-for-his-son-joel-who-died-from-a-deadly-home-brew-in-stanthorpe/story-fnihsrf2-1226665206722 http://www.warwickdailynews.com.au/news/father-man-who-died-moonshine-tragedy-faces-court/2092724/
