    Smoking the Sacred Sage

    I've been wanting to try this for some time now, I've had a big jar of loose leaf white sage just sitting on the shelf for more than a year now, just waiting for my curiosity to take over. I just tried some in a pipe with some pretty impressive relaxation effects, and I am not easily impressed as I have smoke just about everything under the sun. I would definitely say it's stronger than lotus and damiana. Has anyone else tried this? Or has this really been sitting under our noses the whole time!?

    Hi (New Member Intro)

    I really like his theory that Jimi and Hunter would have been amazing artists without psychedelics. This is probably true, but would they have been the pop culture sensations that touched an entire generation? Not so sold on that. Here's a good one, what about the obvious affects of opiates on singing? Janis, Kurt, Amy; all good examples throughout time of people who quite clearly used heroine to become amazing vocalists. Now the question is simple, are amazing vocalists just attracted to heroine? Or does heroine make amazing vocalists? Also, and I'm really not trying to start a fight, I am just curious here, what about the theory that the Tibetan Book of the Dead is clearly a guidebook for shamanic psychedelic experiences? Where do you draw the line? Is putting your body through extensive fasting and lethargy (sitting around all day) not a method of affecting the mind through substances as you are releasing certain tryptamine compounds in your brain when you do this? If you eat an apple, and it makes you feel good, isn't that you altering your mind with a substance? There is no food that you can consume that will not affect your mind with a substance, everything you eat affects your mood and your body. So, where is the line? Is it based on how drastically it can affect your mind? How do you then determine which are OK and which are not?

    Yerba mate

    4 parts Mate 3 parts Mint 1 part Lemon Peel Oh, and when I say Lemonade I mean fresh lemonade, like we make over here in the States, not Sprite.

    Yerba mate

    One of my favorite cocktails is: Yerba Mate Mint Lemon Peel All brewed into a tea, sweetened with agave nectar, and chill. Then mix with lemonade and 100% agave tequila in equal parts. Garnish with lemon wedges and mint leaves. Great for parties, I just do up a big batch of it and people demolish it, and then it demolishes people.

    Smoking the Sacred Sage

    It's definitely active, in it's own way.
  8. I was actually veggo for years, and a potato, mushroom, bean version of Pepperpot is indeed delicious. It doesn't need to be cooked nearly as long, and in fact I would cook it for about an hour with the beans and mushrooms, then I would throw in some big chunks of potato and stopped it once they were tender. Easy done, and still yummy. The longer you let it sit, though, the more that flavor gets through all the potatoes and beans. Soo good. Cassareep can also be sourced online, although I think I may have had troubles getting it through customs when I lived over there. Well, at least my package never showed up, but I never got a letter from customs either, so who knows what happened. It is interesting to note how simple, yet almost exactly spot on this recipe is. Cinnamon, Clove, Mother-Of-Herbs (Which they call Guyanese Thyme, or just Thyme), Very Spicy Chilis (They usually either use Scotch Bonnet or Wiri-Wiri), Sugar, Meat, and a very thick and bitter starchy sauce (Cassareep). That's it. Some recipes add onion and garlic, which is ok, but I actually prefer it without them. Either way, it is the perfect way to start the day if you are about to go out and work the fields all day, or run around the jungle and hunt some boar or something. Especially when served with a fresh loaf of bread and a few different types of ciggies.
  9. So, my father and his family are actually from Guyana, so I've grown up with the tradition of going to grandma's house to eat Pepperpot for Christmas. It's an amazing beef stew that is made with Cassareep. Cassareep is a sauce made out of the cooked juice of cassava roots. The cool thing about all of this is that cassareep has some magical properties. It is a powerful antiseptic, powerful enough to preserve the meat inside the Pepperpot indefinitely, as long as it is brought to a boil for 3 minutes every day. http://www.food.com/recipe/cassareep-217563 So, Cassareep is the real point of this post. It is an awesome sauce that the native people of South America had come up with, in the northern parts of the Amazon rainforest, that you can make a magical pepper pot out of, that you just keep adding more water, meat, and cassareep to, and it just keeps building flavor and getting better and better!! I'm going to start an experiment here pretty soon where I try to keep a Pepperpot going for as long as I can, and I'll post updates and get all you guys's mouths drooling for some Pepperpot. http://www.gotoguyana.org/food-recipes/pepper-pot/

    Acorus Americanus / 'calamus, sweet flag'

    I was a big fan of taking little bumps of powdered calamus up the nose there for a little while. Takes a little while (like a week or two) before anything starts happening, some sort of weird reverse tolerance thing. Love this plant! I have a bag somewhere, I'll do some more experiments here in a bit and get back to you. I would like to do an ethanol extract on some and see where it gets me.

    It's probably subby.
  16. I just moved over to St. Louis, MO, USA a couple of years ago, and I thought pretty much the same thing, but you would be surprised at what you can get away with indoors. I have a 2 bedroom flat with no patio or balcony, but I have loads of plants on every windowsill including tropicals that are all doing fine. I even have cactus that are growing, albeit pretty slowly, but they're alive! Do not fear, anything can be accomplished with a little determination and care.

    Smoking the Sacred Sage

    I can definitely see how that is true, considering it is true for many plants, unfortunately I have never had any luck growing the darn stuff. Maybe I'll try again this season, although now I want to get a white sage plant too and see what chewing the fresh leaves of that is like.

    Smoking the Sacred Sage

    Damiana Tea can be very strong, it just tastes awful though. I have unfortunately not had the opportunity to play with fresh damiana yet, maybe one day. The white sage is like this deep, dreamy, meditative state. I haven't tried it as a tea yet, but I did read somewhere that the natives used to chew, brew, and burn it, so it should be safe to play around with. The flavor of the smoke is very strong and mentholated, so it should make and interesting cuppa, I'll have to try that next and keep y'all posted.

    BTW, Raw Cacao/Wild Mushroom Hot Chocolate is amazing! Easy to make: Heat water, not boiling, just hot. Add cacao and sweetener (Agave Nectar, Honey, Sugar, etc…)(The more cacao the better, but also very bitter) Chop whatever wild mushroom you happen to find into fine pieces easy enough to drink and throw em in there Wait like a couple of minutes and get it into ya! You can always chuck some spices or chili in there to make a Spicy Hot Chocolate too! Yummy!! Love you guys!! I hope y'all have fun!

    Name change notifcations...

    I'm pretty sure that this isn't a good idea, there was a mass name changing when the new laws got put into effect in Aus, along with mass picture deletions. This was intentional and if it was easy to know who was who back then, it totally ruins the point of what those member were trying to do.

    Smoke that Taste like Tobacco... but isn't...

    Nicotine is the best part of the plant, it's a stimulant, a mood stabilizer, and an appetite suppressant, what's the point in smoking if it doesn't do anything!? To answer the question though, the native Americans mixed their baccy with loads of different plants, the best of which, imo, is raspberry leaf, which was very commonly used, sometimes it was even smoked by itself as a substitute for tobacco. Bearberry and lobelia were pretty common too.
