This thread has been created with the purpose of having one single thread for Acacia confusa! It has been created in hopes that we all may be able to share any and all info we have on Acacia confusa.
I know I have personal goals (listed in "GOALS") but for anyone else who does too, then please PM me and they will be added to this intro post!
You can search Acacia confusa on Wikipedia if you are not sure what it is. This is taken from the intro on Wikipedia: Acacia confusa is a perennial tree native to South-East Asia. Some common names for it are Acacia Petit Feuille, Small Philippine Acacia, Formosa Acacia (Taiwan Acacia) and Formosan Koa. It grows to a height of 15 m. The tree has become very common in many tropical Pacific areas, including Hawaii, where the species is considered invasive.
And this is the intro found under the "Uses" section on Wikipedia: Its uses include chemical products, environmental management and food and drink. The bark may be grinded up into a powder and saturated into water to create a tea, or may be spread onto various foods as a spice and taste enhancer. The wood has a density of about 0.75 g/cm≥. In Taiwan, its wood is used to make support beams for underground mines. The wood is also converted to charcoal for family use. The plant is used in traditional medicine and is available from herbal medicine shops (草藥店) in Taiwan, but there has been no clinical study to support its effectiveness.
I ask that anyone who is posting with info to post as much as possible about whatever they're posting about! It would also be great if you talked about "how-to" and your or your friends experience with it.

AFOAF tried to smoke some like one would with weed
. He first broke it up and grinded it down. Next he put it into his bowl and smoke like it was weed. He is not sure what he is feeling and doesn't think it did anything. He does have a headache now and slight nausea, but something happened, but he isn't sure what. Acacia confusa can't be smoked like pot.

Has anyone tired doing a CWE and smoking that? Also does one need a MAOI
if they're smoking it? MAOI(s) are only for when drinking/eating, right?
