BOOKS ON NATURE AND NATURAL HERBS AND PLANTS MUST NEVER BE BANNED levels were found during spring re-growth and in the
seed shedding phase. At these times, alkaloids have been found to
Another factor influencing alkaloid levels is
genetic strain. Again, low alkaloid phalaris plants have been
developed through breeding. Great for the sheep, bad for trip
seeking humans. The seed you'll find available commercially will
be low grade. Try to obtain seed from herb companies that cater
to the psychedelic community.
XXXXXXXXXXX IMPLICATIONS FOR GROWING XXXXXXXXXX
To make the most of the light intensity factor, one might
grow the plant in full sunlight/growlight until a few weeks
before harvest, then reduce the light or shade the plant. I see
no reason why alkaloid levels would not peak during this
time. However, this technique would provide more mature phalaris,
rather than the potent young stuff. With this method, one would
have a large quantity of moderately potent phalaris. If one could
shade outside plants, with plastic or fabric for example, this
would make a great outdoor technique. If one were going to
perform a chemical extraction, this would probably make the
effort worthwhile by maximizing overall yield.
Perhaps the plant could be kept in a re-growth phase by
frequent clipping, like a lawn. In this case, one might grow a
patch of phalaris in a wide shallow pot under grow lights. It
should be allowed to grow up healthy and fill the pot under light
that will maximize growth. Reduce light and harvest by clipping
the plant down. Allowing the plant to grow large and healthy
ensures that a good root structure will be built and will
maximize re-growth. Turn light intensity up and allow the plant
to put on new growth. After a short period of regrowth, reduce
light, then clip. Repeat as desired. Because day length does not
seem to influence alkaloids, the light/dark schedule should be
set to maximize growth. I have no idea what ratio is needed.
Of course the plants should be watered with a strong
Remember, the research shows that the nitrogen, shading and
temperature alkaloid boosts DO NOT increase 5-OH-DMT levels,
resulting in a cleaner DMT / 5-Me-DMT experience!

XXXXXXXXXXX PREPARATION XXXXXXXXXX
The simplest way to prepare phalaris is to use a wheat juice
extractor. This device presses the juice out of the leaves and
stalks. Of course dosage becomes harder to gauge. One report on
the internet suggested 1 teaspoon as a good dose and 2 teaspoons
as an extreme overdose, resulting in one freaky trip. It appears
likely, and has been suggested in some reports, that alkaloid
levels drop when the plant dries. By taking the fresh sap,
alkaloid levels should be maximized.

A woman's sexual appetite can be enhanced by eating certain foods. Foods that are believed to act as a female aphrodisiac include the following.
This vegetable is rich in vitamin E that has been known to stimulate production of women and men's sex hormones essential for a healthy sex life.
Capsaicin is the chemical ingredient responsible for the hot effect of the chilli pepper. It stimulates nerve endings, raises your pulse and makes you sweat! It is believed that eating hot foods such as chilli peppers can evoke the release of endorphins that create a natural high conductive to the feelings you have during love-making.
This type of nut has always been a symbol of fertility throughout the ages. The aroma is thought to induce passion in a woman.
Bananas are rich in potassium and B vitamins, necessary for sex hormone production.
The Greeks and the Romans considered the rare truffle mushroom to be a female aphrodisiac. The musky scent is stimulatingly aromatic and makes the skin sensitive to touch.
Chocolate contains a stimulant called phenylethylamine, known as the "love chemical" that creates a feeling of well being and excitement similar to the feeling you experience during intimacy.
As far back as history goes the need for a male or female aphrodisiac has been sought by many who had created recipes thought to induce sexual stimulation. Some ingredients commonly used included the following; Anise, basil, carrot, salvia, gladiolus root, orchid bulbs, pistachio nuts, rocket (arugula), sage, sea fennel, turnips, skink flesh (a type of lizard) and river snails.
As well as enhancing one's sex drive there have been foods that have been known in history to contribute to a decline in one's libido that are believed to be the following; dill, lentil, lettuce, watercress, rue, and water lily.
