  1. hi! one time a member here stated something like, "if this herb get's processed with water kefir, it might help to jump the blood brain barrier".... water kefir mixed with herbs is a not very researched subject. maybe it doe's though work and it might even do the trick with herbs which are not easy to extract. the advantage right away is that, the brewing process is very simple, and very cheap, as such this ought to give a lot of room to experiment. my hope would be that one could use a very wide variety of plants as part of a kefir brew. kefir has a very nice taste, and said to have gut related health benefits. i bought my kefir granules at my local health food shop, and they needed to, wake up, but now they are ready for a "medicinal brew" kefir excited

    psychotropic water kefir

    your replies, make me aware of many different, mechanism, which i did not know about, thank you. although the process is very, very simple my outcomes vary to a large degree... some brews, were so nice, i prefered them over my own, favorite beverage beer. some turned into a bubbly jelly which, not as tasty as hoped. one time i used dragon fruit as flavor, and the brew was tasty, but the seeds, took i while to remove from the granules. as well, if you use a strainer, save the straining water, and decant carefully, and save all the baby granules, so you get more granules. i am not certain, but the granules seem to have a certain life span, even with good care, so always look out for tiny granules. i tried to put the, added fruts or ginger, tied into muslin cloth, to avoid contaminating the brew with seeds and flaky fiber, but that didn't work well for the brew. the additatives, need to be loosly held in the water and agitated once in a while. an other idea i had is to use the brew, as a dispenser for micro dosing. next will be to use minced ginger, out of the jar, and see if the preservative are not harmfull to the brewing process.

    psychotropic water kefir

    some of my sceletium preparations, turned out to have a "cheesy" flavor, after just following the traditional preparation. scelly would be on top of my list to add to water kefir. it's a very easy straight forward operation, but the details i still have to work out. as it's said to have been found, naturaly with opuntia fruits, i used dragon fruit for a brew, but the seeds were hard to remove from the granules. so i will not do this again. putting the additavies (thinnly sliced ginger (or galangel) and lemon with skin, in a bag of muslin cloth produce a weak brew. there are many things i still have to learn like how to dry the granules and than store them in the fridge, when one got tiered of having to brew every few days... my instructions said, rinse granules, with a strainer with cold water (previously boiled water). but i noticed that this way, one throws a way young granules. alchemica's input explains the mild head sensation, it's the bacteria it'selve and not the galangel mild properties. drinking the beverage, seemed to have eased a bit my diverticuly disease pain. i did throw out the ginger, but maybe it could be re used. do make a brew with say withania, it could work to add, the already heat and water extracted roots. i have wishfull thinking that, the kefir aids to facilitate the solubilety of actives, into water.

    big lophs, small prices

    hi! gardening is causing my chronic pain to get a bit worse, so i reduce my workload even more. i want to sell 2/3 of my cacti collection, but can't upload pictures (last time i got an upload error and it never got fixed by the admins) this is how it works: i got lophs many years old, and some monsterous pedros, and some btrue blue pedro. all parcels will be of similar configaration, say one very big loph, some medium and some smaller. i let you know the sizes, and quanteties via privat messaging. minnimum purchase is 200aud, plus postage. send me a pm, if you are interressted, they will be cheap and of very good quality, and ready to be repotted.

    whaT DID you learn from SAB forums?

    the big advantage learning from sab, is that a lot of people have first hand experience, regarding the subjects. a lot of old style academic books contain, so many mistakes, which just get copied, from the new guy who, decides to write a book. most of this scholars as well make no adjustments for where you live. i point out for example two issues, first for example, poppies grown outside traditional poppy growing countries hardly produce opium... or "it's hard to understand, like the natives found out about the psychoactive properties of this plant". they say this because they never walked through a field of salvia, or smelled the plants on a hot day, when a little drizzle moistens the leaves. a lot of things you learn here a SAB one can as well, use as inspiration for similar things, like for example my heimia x-talls using only water, has been inspired partly by orbs salvia extraction. although he uses aceton and methilated spirits, and i use only water. but the main inspiration was to, add a layer of solvent (water is a solvent) without stirring the layer underneath it. the older posts of sab, are far more naughty, as the laws were not as strict yet. to search for older posts, it's good to use your search engine, plus the term shaman australis.

    big lophs, small prices

    ok, so here's a story.... when i traded those lophs, i got several pm's claiming that 6 and 8cm lophs ar not big, and they are only interessted in "big" lophs. they whole thing reeked of, attempts to maybe say, you don't know what you are doing and i will not buy lophs of you, because they are small and not big, as you say. this naturaly, happend because, i once complained that somebody here, did not return all my lophs and never, gave me any money either as was agreed.... now, if i learned one thing of plants, than it could be, not to take attacks personely, and not to hold on to some upset. but rather learn or take something positive from it.... those people were driven by negative emotions, and by lack of knowledge! so i say as followes. lophs which grow bigger than 8cm and are fast growing in volume are called giants. so there privat message should have read, i only want to buy giant lophs, not i only want to buy big loph, larger than8cm or more. most lophs don't grow into giant sizes, but reach there maximum size, and than don't get any bigger, not even after 40years!! but it's said that at this time, i did not sell many giants, maybe some small giants. giants sell for 400 to 800aud and i only asked very little money for my cacti, so no giants. i have a few giants, and they are kept indoors, far away from the few other lophs i still got. the hope is to produce a lot of "giant" seeds. i sowed out some of those, seeds pollinated only by giants, a few weeks ago, wath this space for more info. i hope to be able to sell some giant seeds, and giants (but still small) grafted onto peres. financial interessts, i don't have. giant lophs

    Acacia courtii seed

    i'll bump you too, but with information. it was discussed here at sab, if we should reply with info, at the seed&plant trades sub forum, and the consent was yes! :) i would like to share, that acacia courtii, has an enormous climatic range. most "good" acacias don't grow in my climatic zone (check my info at the avatar), but courtii can flourish. it's such a good candidate, one can smell the goodness, like a fine wine..... acacia courtii, go for it, the experts endorse it!

    Mystery khat ID?

    i agree with you, to call it a green variety, and as such it's likely to be a cross between a vienna white and a syd rbg narrow leaved. the leaves look wider than an nl, and narrower than a vw. because we created so many x-crosses, and appearance can be misleading, i decide if it's more an nl or broad, by the fact if, how they sucker. as well nl and broad have a different appereance, which only becomes obvious, in mature plants.

    Phalaris spp?

    could be phalaris. the varigated form, is good to use, the small toxic portions are not an issue, but i forgot why (either don't come across or don't pyrolise well, but remeber to have posted in detail, long ago). people use inmature growth, without flower stalks. wild form proly contains less compounds... it's amazing how many psychotropic plants grow as weeds in our back yard.

    Cacao & Quetzalcoatl & Jonathan Ott & Actec Flavours

    thats very good work... i'm always interressted in maoi's as potentiater. i suggest to experiment with caapi or even better passiflora incarnata. i think ther could be a version of this idea, which could taste nice as well (adding passion fruit juice to the preparation. i agree that food warnings, when taking maoi's are over cautious, however over the years we had many stories where, people forgot they took, take an maoi, and than ended up with serotonin symptom. i further like to expand, that a plant based, combo with nsri's could be very interessting. i remember a bio essay, mixing melatonin, with harmala, and it got scary, never to be repeated.
  12. it's important to note that, in this case it's not the probagating technic, which makes this look very cool, but the variety of lemon. many lemon trees are very easy to grow by cuttings, but they all share one problem, root rot, or Phytophthora. if kept in a pot out of the weather, they might grow, but if planted out they die sooner or later. thats why all comercial trees are grafted, onto phytophthora resistant root stock. i might add another incredible fact, if you grow grapefruits from seed, they very often already flower as a seedling, which looks very cool, and from time to time get hailed a "miracle of nature", but it ain't. australia native citrus, as well could be probagated by those technics, and they are expensive to buy, and 100% phytophthora immune. the ozzy native finger lime, squeezed onto an oyster, is a marriage made in heaven!
  13. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tabernaemontana_undulata nice research, alchemica! i wonder if it's easier to cultivate than iboga, if so this has enormous potential.

    Catha edulis seed

    all you guys said it correct. it's self pollinating, can produce seeds after 4 years, and if planted out you get fantastic seed set, only after a perfect season... in pot's you get seeds almost every year. they like water over winter, but in pot's not too much. the most incredible thing regarding catha, is that they can form underground shoots, to form a new plant, wher they think it's better for them. they are not roots, but very thin vegetative shoots, with long nodes and tiny pale leaves. i never found anyone mentioning this in the sience litarature. once this underground shoot likes the position it, forms roots, and upright grow. it's a form of suckering with a distance.

    South Pacific vs Micronesian kava / sakau

    i watched landline, and the person said, this kava was prepared with slippery hibiscus as an additative. this landline report focused on kava, made me wanna grow it again, but we would need to get the right property for it. is it legal to grow in oz? mabee some offshore islands would be suited. i would invest all my savings into a venture like this. 3 or 4 investors, i will study locations. table land maybe not good enough, chrismas island, or some offshore qld islands. if you got info, post it here.

    Aus kratom growing

    in the uk, i grew them inside, behind the windows. those ones i grew from seed, and sold in europe. they were small, never did a bio essay. regarding potency, i read the red veined, is stronger than the rifat/four seasons. an established tree can survive mild frosts, and it helps if daytime temps are much higher. it's said the rifat is a self pollinator, and some rumor claims the offspring was red veined. i can't confirm this. we spoke a lot about the seeds of this plant here at sab, if you break open a sphere of this plant, the seeds are the smallest items you will see, shaped like an artist, might paint a rolling tear. only the spheres were some green tubes poke out have been pollinated... i bio essayed the rifat more than 25 years ago, it was potent.

    covid 19 vaccination

    are we allowed to discuss this topic? many people are smarter than me here, so i ask which jab is the safest if you have a family record of blood clots and are 60 years of age. when i called the number to register for my jab, the phone operator hung up on me. i know of a case where a young person in my area got pfizer bio tek instead of astra. but my research could not copy this persons achivement. rumours are pfizer will become available, in given time. please help. you have to understand, statistics even from the goverment provided (1 dead in 200 000)would mean 100 australiens will die from clots. now go and don't belive the goverments statistics (and i don't) than many more will die. the goverment doesn't tell us what we need to do, if you have a family history of blood clots. edit; i had surgery 14 days ago, stapled heamorocopy (sorry i;m slightly dyslexic) were given fentanil, than endo. could not sleep for 8 day's endo kept me awake, and none of the medical support i recived believed me. please guys, never abuse those pain killers. today first day with little pain, stopped endo 5 days ago or so. it was my friend who helped me miracously and took my fear. on the 16 somebody vandalised my car....

    Aus kratom growing

    i suspect a mistake by caring for this plant, they grow well even if you have to keep them inside over winter. i grew them in the uk, with no difficulties. its as well not a sensitive plant as it might be suggested, in this thread. it's a tough as hemp, and everybody that can grow hemp should be able to grow kratom... they will survive a mild frost, and i am currently searching the forum, to find posts about growers in vic, before it became illegal. i think this topic is very good, and somebody should move it, to were no guests or google can spy on us.

    covid 19 vaccination

    you rise some very valid points. so, if one of the docs that worked at the surgery before, wrote down, "muscle pain" than thats it, even if you say, "it has to do with food" or the scans said " your lower verts are vacummed. asking for painkillers, unless you had an operation is a red flag for them, and you will get stigmatised. i complained once to a male triage nurse, and he run a vendetta against me, and i did not get a proper treatment. i am prescribed 400mg ibubrofene and i use this as an anty inflamatory, so for periodes one or two a day for a week or so, when telling this do the doc which filled in, he refused to writte me another script, for ibuprofene!! most doctors and the media are extreemly deluded, they think street drugs make addicted, and prescription drugs don't!!! if you say to them, i got hooked on the anti depressant, and have to increase dosage, they say it doesn't matter this drug is good for you. as a shaman i realised the ssri's are not good for me, and now the most modern research claims, ssri's don't fix depression and the benefits were overstated and the side effects ignored. i took once occasional a anti depressant/ anti psyhotic which name now escapes me, when i said to my doc, this makes me suicidal in a way i never experienced before, he said double your dose, what an idiot. i stopped taking it, and never had this feeling ever again. a friend of mine suicided whilst taken this pill.... doc's prescribe those drugs even to alcoholics, all though it very bad to mix them. one time, my diverticulits pain was soo bad, i took 2 oxicontin which i had left after an operation, they only masked the pain, and helped not much... i am lucky i am a shaman, and i can treat my issues at times with herbs. the other thing is to accept things for how they are.

    covid 19 vaccination

    if you experience, some unwanted side effects from the vac, you can't complain to anybody, or any institution. i tried to contact the tga, all you are allowed to talk to is a phamacist, who say's i'm, sorry for what happend to you. in the first test, nobody complained about tinitus, but now one if 5000 get's it. there is a web page for serious side effects, and a goverment pay out scheme, but for non life threatening side effects, you get no help, they just all ignore your pleas. the astra seneca vac, gave me tinitus, and i still have it to this day. when i had covid, the tinitus intensified, but now it's not very loud again. it's a very anoying condition, i feel i get no justice....
