    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?

    You could have used the search icon and found all the answers you need but since Im a nice guy.. I highly recommend soaking it in alcohol for a while it is the most effective method. Strong wine works nicely, smoking it would be a waste trust me I've done it. Also simmering it in tea proved to have no effects.

    The effects is a sedetive/hypnotic some compare it to cannabis/opioids I would say it is most similiar to Codeine.

    Effects are said to start at 5 grams the more the better, do experimenting and see what dosage you think you like best.

    Soaking in alcohol is not only the tradition way of use but also the well known best method of using this plant. It contains among other alkaloids Nuciferin and Aporphine. Also I have read from several sources most of the alkaloids from Blue lotus are not soluble in water. Although some have reported using a tea concoction this is not an effective way to achieve effects you will end up like I did, very disapointed.Edited by: RoboCop

    Finally somewhere people like my favorite flower. I imbibe wine and lotus often. In small amounts it is sedative almost like an opiate. In verylarge amounts it can be psychedelic but not to the extent of even say morning glory seeds.


    As I do use this plant alot I was wondering if anyone has become tolerant to it. Lately seems like it takes more to do the same and cant tell if it's me or the quality.
