    I tried an 10X extract once. I do not know if it was quality, but I will probably never try it again. It was the ultimate muscle relaxant. Almost impossible to walk, sentences needed lightyears to be produced by my brain and longer to come out of my mouth. No euphoria at all, just extreme numbing. The week afterwards I felt numbed emotionally to the max. With only a bit of depression in my psyche. To get such a rebound from other drug, would need a *very* long and intensive party. Did anyone get good effects from this?

    The blue water lily was sacred to the ancient Egyptians. The god of the blue water lily was Nefertem, Lord of Perfume. The flowers were not only noted for their delightful perfume by the Egyptians but also for bringing euphoria, heightened awareness and tranquillity. Many historians thought it was a purely symbolic flower, but there are some reasons to believe that ancient Egyptians used it to induce an ecstatic state, stimulation, and/or hallucinations.


    Monarchs and priests of ancient Egypt used this plant as a narcotic both for its healing qualities and as a recreational drug (soaked in wine). Probably it contains aporphine and a substance called nuciferine, soluble in alcohol, but not known to be psychoactive. People confirm effects as euphoria with tranquilisation, like cannabis or codeine; a little hallucinatory at higher doses - but mainly hypnotic with a pretty good sedative, mild opiate or cannabis like feeling. It says that the flower has a sort of Viagra effect, other claimed effects claim similar in some ways to MDMA.

    i love blue lotus myself but i would suggest not smoking it. [NO SOURCES OUTSIDE THE SOURCES FORUM] sells some great blue lotus extracts. potent but not like overdosing on muscle relaxants [​IMG]. from what i'm reading on the label, no alcohol also.


    be wary of the extracts they sell elsewhere because of the preservatives and alcohol they use.

    To Talan: What is the problem with alcohol in the extract? If Alcohol is used to extract the herb it is called a tincture. Why would it be bad to have alcohol in the extract if it is sold as a drink mixer?


    What preservitives are in "other" extracts?

    i personally do not take it with alcohol. if i wanted alcohol, i would go to a bar. i do not like how alcohol masks the blue lotus.


    the harmful ones...i am speaking of the crystallized blue lotus extracts they sell on the web. forgive me if i cannot furnish you with alist of chemicals they use but from my knowledge i know they are not processed well.

    How do you extract it? That is, I know it involves somehow
    soaking the blue lotus in a solvent that will pull the active compounds
    out and then evaporating/boiling off the solvent somehow, but does
    anyone know anything more specific? Also, Talan suggested not
    smoking it. What other method of use do you reccomend?

    Does any one have some info on what the active chemical in this lotus
    might be? An alkaloid maybe? or some terpenoid?

    I am now wondering which plant is actually the "Blue Lotus" of ancient text, Nymhaea caerulea or Nelumbo nuciferine.

    If you'd made that effort yourself, you would have found out that this would be of no use. Unless you have Christian Rätsch's Encyclopedia of psychoactive plants laying around(recently translated in english and it is (at least the German version is) the best book on entheobotanicals I have ever bought).


    [​IMG]


    Nymphaea caerulea is Blue Lotus (of the Nile).


    [​IMG]


    Nelumbo nucifera is Nelumbo or Indian Lotus.Edited by: Alfa

    There is also "blue lilly", which is sometimes confused.

    Nelumbo nucifera is, in fact the Pink Lotus. You are right, the blue and white lotus's aren't even lotus's, they are lilies. The pink lotus is sometimes confused with the blue lotus, and one of its common names is blue lotus.



    Here's where the confusion lies: On said website they

    are calling the blue lotus "Sacred Blue Lily of the Nile"

    (&lt;---- what you are looking for) and the pink lotus "Blue

    Lotus". Always go by the scientific names when you are

    buying stuff, and always do a little research.

    I tried Blue Lotus once and nothing happened. I drank two glasses
    of the not too delicious tea after doing a line of blow with my
    friends. My two other friends that did coke did it also. No
    effect. Does anyone know why?

    Yea I e-mailed the site about this some months ago, they told me they had got it right and other sources where wrong. Not to big of a deal in my opinion at least they label the scientific name correctly.

    They do have reason to believe what they do, and in a way I respect them sticking to their belief.Edited by: RoboCop

    Swim brews her Blue Lotus in an automatic dripcoffee pot, about 3.5 grams. Swim waits until after drinking the tea and then have an alcohol beverage. If she drinks more than 6 or 7 grams, she gets a stoned feeling and a hangover the next day. In general Swim likes Kratom better than Blue Lotus.
