    how to cure herbs for smoking

    I used to smoke a lot of tobacco (in Europa smoking is still in fashion), but I could never reach satisfaction with it, and my lungs said, please stop, so I did. when smoking a joint though, I still like to mix in, a tiny amount of the former. when running out of store baccy, I added my home grown tobacco. it seemed to satisfy me far more, and I even used far less, than when using rollie baccy… now, I remember something similar happened when using tobacco, that had a native American on the package. so what is realy going on here, I ask you? as well, I had experiences with chop chop, but most of the time, and that even from different sources, the product was inferior, often even smelling awfull. some rumors say, commercial baccy has been treated with chemicals to make them more addictive! I don't know, but it certainly gets treated with chemicals that ought to make it, burn more evenly... I guess the way, tobacco is cured, is similar to curing other herbs, even if they get absorbed other ways than smoking. the nutshell: harvest leaves, dry as slowly as possible, without light (green tea is an exemption). when almost dry seal herb into a container, or plastic bag, so the herb stays soft. if too dry already, add moisture in form of water, to the sealed space, checking the contents once a day. after 2-3 days, the once crumbly, harsh and too fast burning herb will be soft and moist again, and now provide a quality smoke. the water can be added, by using a fine mister, directly onto the tobacco, or like with a humidor, in a small container which is contained inside the humidor. what is your drift regarding curing?
  5. guys! i got very high blood pressure, and have taken at least 5 different pills for this condition. they all gave me bad side effects, with coversyl, the one with least side effects. i am on maximum dose of idosyl, and it gives me bad side effects, dizzy head, muscle weakness, pale fingers, specialy in the heat, more sensitive to heat, slight swallen ankles... as well they change the apperance of the pills and now i feel they are worse than before. saw my doc about it dozens of times... so i strted to research herbs: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3210006/ i ask for your input, as i know some of you practise tcm and ayurverdic (i'm dyslecic). the list mentiones peganum harmala, so i gues caapii would be good as well. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/903860/ iam now looking sa well for uncaria rynchophylla cat's claw herb. anybody got experience with bp reducing herbs? i would still take the coversyl but want to reduce it back to halve what i take now. i still had often hypertension even taking indosyl.... my dad had a stroke and the clot buster gave him a heart attack.... one of my mates aged 68, just had a stroke, active one day, the adult diaper the next day. i want to avoid this, but the pills hamper my active life style.

    treating hypertension with herbs

    i tried some of my home grown ashwagandha, a few weeks ago, and could not "feel it", but i probably dosed too low, the pill's i bought once at woolies, i could feel. i am highly motivated to beat this, so i thank you for all your input. the indosyl gave me side effects, including a pressure headache, which unfortunately stayed with me, even 3 weeks after stopping indosyl.

    treating hypertension with herbs

    i guess i get the pottasium chloride at the health food shop, or pharmacy. i hope, you did not get put back too much, by my laconic responce. i think your input has the potential to be the golden bullet, with this dillema. so i go in more detail, i love salt, but cook all from scratch, and don't have take away junk food (they use heaps of salt). i stopped the indosyl bpm, and fell "stronger again", what happend was, the indosyl made me so lethargic, and i had the feeling that eating "salty" made me overcome this lethargic sensation to some degree, crazy ahy? i stopped the bpm maybe 3 weeks ago, and had my bp meassured twice, and it was lower than on the meds! an active lifstyle with lot's of excercise is a good natural remedy against hbp, but those pills stopped me from doing that, a perfect example how western medicine, we only treat the syptoms, can be a bad idea. mosy bpm were so bad i could not drive, walk proper or do my chores. i hope to get on top of this now, before my risk of stroke even increases. i thank you all for you input, i will try to source the potassiun chloride and the motherwort. i think having an anxiety dissorder doesn't help, and i percive some sounds as threats... (my place got robbed and vandalised by the noisy punks at the close by basket ball court, selling meth). the skaters are people i never had problems with.

    ishmael, what you say is true, but my body feels better if i use salt. stopping salt would be impossible for me. thx for the hint, using potassium chloride instead.

    treating hypertension with herbs

    i don't smoke anymore, and had stopped drinking, and maybe even my fatty liver went away (now it's back) the more vegie thing is something i have to do anyway as well, because of diverticulitis disease. i eat lot's of rice, and cook everything from scratch, but haven't learned yet to cook those yummy all vegie meals. it's a matter of changing your live stile, which is often not that easy. it's funny how many vegies and fruits on the list, are vegies which i crave and like a lot. i believe that the bp pills made it harder or next to impossible to excersise, so it was counter productive. i got this head ache/ dizzy head since more than 3 months, (with arnolds accent, it's not a tumor) which i though came from maximum dose of indosyl. i haven take indosyl for two weeks now, head ache a bit better, muscles work better, circulation to extremities better, less cough...

    Aptenia cordifolia (A Zulu traditional medicine)

    it's a very comman plant, and often sold in nurseries. i seem not to like ssri type pills and even sceletium, but i might ad that sceletium could maybe be a hallucigenic in close to pure form, and very euphoric. but maybe the smoke apperatus was contaminated. fermenting this material is fun, herbalistic often contains woody parts, which than ge turned into powder. i leave the material to ferment (in the sun in a closed container) and once it's mushy, run the fingernails of thump and pointer along the stems, and as such remove the green parts (leaves and soft bark), but leave the wooden core behind. for a/b you need chloroform....

    treating hypertension with herbs

    it is a serious condition, i tried 4 or 5 different pills, including mini press. they all made me very sick, and i could not drive or walk well. coversyl had the least side effects, but than as well did not seem to help, to lower my bp, i remeber a reading of 187/??? dyastolic i don't remeber maybe 112... my muscles turned weak, my body was more sensitive to the heat, and the blood did not go to my extremities. i as well got a hazy head with mild head ache for 3 months, and thought it's the coversyl. doc diagreed, any way i'm of the indosyl now, and had two bp readings one 126/100 and 142/??? so it did not get worse so far.... managed yesterday again to go on a field trip, which meant lots of walking. another thing which is again better are the papilations, my heart doesnt pump as loud as it did... there is the chance that symptoms got mixed up, but today is only the 3 day, i feel close to normal again, and the head aches ad\nd dizzy head i had for 3 mo0nths are subsiding. most of my hypertension probably arises from anxiety, a thing doctors don't understand.... so far i try to meditate more. celery everyday and garlic. and i will use other herbal supplements. that coversyl, took all the strengh i had left in my body away.

    Legality Of Papaver somniferum in Victoria

    i hope some of you manage to find old posts regarding this subject. even poppy of flanders contains alkaloids, and so does californian poppy.... i posted once a topic called home milking of poppies, meaning cut the stems, and lance them at home out of sight from, preying eyes. emerging the stems into hot water helps. even in the gardening australia tv show, one can often see papaver somniferium, so as long you make it a gardening delight, you could be ok. one a sight note, the northern terretory farmers wanted to grow poppy and the tassy people stopped them, crazy if you think not enough legal poppy is produced world wide. i suggest to give, "illegal poppy growers" (say in afghanistan) the right to grow legal poppy!! it's all a world conspiracy, haha.

    M.speciosa seeds

    gomaos (spell) once told me maybe 15 years ago, that he germinated the seeds of his rifat clone. i have inspected the seed pods of this tree, since years, and do remember some detail of some posts, regarding this subject. i assume as followes: the spheres which display, tiny "hollow spikes" emerging of the spherical seed capsule, are pollinated. when the sphere is dried up, shrivel the sphere, and use a strong magnifying glass to inspect the "teardrop" shaped seeds. some will be more swollen than others, they are the good seeds. i sprikled many seeds on top of some seed raising potting mix, and use a humidety dome. i report back with the proress.

    Salvia recognita growing tips?

    most so called "plant gurus" would say damping off is caused by soil pathogenes, and too much humidety. so people sterilize soil and seeds, air the growing area, check for perfect light levels, and THE SEEDLINGS STILL DAMP OFF. than there is the "plant hippy", he's using 3 times already recycled soil, and shows little thought, for what he is trying to achive. and ALL SEEDLINGS STAY STRONG AND PROSPER!. DISCLAMER: actual outcome might vary, compared to this mentioned suggestion. the author never grew recognita from seed.

    Salvia d. mechanism of infertility

    thx, for the excellent link, fyzygy! this is exciting and opens up, a new door. at my locations, sally can be ok, for years, but if i get, hot (desert) westerly winds they die, of heat stress. i think this wind and heat wave only comes in el ninjo years, but i'm not sure. there are tropical locations above 400m around, in oz and they would be ideal... as well, once sally seeds become available, we could try to induce mutations, but i forgot the name of the chemical. idealy would be a climat controlled area, where the temps dont go over 30 deg or so... as well, i want to mention that there are posts around, of growers in mexico, and there sally's are 3m monsters!

    Growing HBWR

    i'v never grown it, but have seen a few plants. it's quite normal for them to almost look dead, and than once it had a good shower they jump back to life. if it rained only a bit than the growth spurt will, just prematurly end. i would not water the, plant over the dry spells, but if there was ample rain, water on top of the rain. they are monsters, and have taken over large parts of north queensland, basicly a pest.....
