nd tremors, sometimes resulting in death. The
syndrome affects sheep that have eaten high alkaloid phalaris. On
autopsy, after naturally and experimentally induced phalaris
staggers in sheep, portions of the lower brain are seen to be
damaged and, oddly enough, tinted blue. The responsible agents
are the alkaloids contained in the various phalaris species.
There are whispered rumors that phalaris also contain beta
carbolines, a type of MAOI. If so,it may be that sheep, in eating
large quantities of phalaris, also obtain a dose of MAOI, making
the already large dose (pounds of phalaris could easily be eaten
by a sheep or cow in a day), of DMT active. However, MAOIs are

not required for sheep death. Studies show that controlled
injections of pure DMT, at human recreational doses, kill sheep.
Why sheep and humans respond differently to DMT is still an open
question here. It may be that it is not an important question,
but the possibility of human death on phalaris still looms.

There seems to be a variety of dosages (of pure drug)
suggested in the literature. Table 2 lists some of the reported
dosage levels. It should be noted that levels that are listed in
table two are within the range reported to cause "phalaris
staggers" in sheep and cause them to die.

REPORTED DOSES Ott Lore Gessner Literature
DMT 1mg/kg 60mg --- ---
5-Me-DMT .25mg/kg 5mg 5-10 mg ---

NOTE: These 'reported doses' are non-lethal dosages given to
humans in the literature as referenced. THIS AUTHOR MAKES NO
RECOMMENDATIONS! The "mg/kg" means one mg of drug for every kg of
Using Ott's levels, approximately .5g of Phalaris Tuberosa
per kilogram body weight should yield one dose of 50% DMT and 50%
5-Me-DMT. Using the net lore, 25g of Phalaris Tuberosa would
yield 1 dose of 5-Me-DMT with less than 1/2 dose of DMT: still a
fairly strong dose when totaled. These doses are based on plants
that have not had their alkaloid levels boosted.
Remember, there is WIDE variation of alkaloid levels. One
week a plant may yield a minimal dose, the next week it may blow
your mind away.

The plant is easily propagated by cuttings, and during the past few decades it has made its way into numerous botanical gardens and private collections around the world. Virtually all of the Salvia divinorum in circulation has been vegetatively propagated from two parent clones of this species. The first specimen was collected by R. Gordon Wasson in 1962. A second, so called "palatable" strain was collected by Bret Blosser in 1991. The "palatable" variety is actually still quite bitter, although less so than the Wasson clone. There are a few other strains being maintained, some of which were grown from seed, but these are not in general circulation.
