    This is basically my review on a few new products that I have ordered recently.



    Kanna: Kanna is an SSRI and it does work, but it is not comparable to
    anything except anti depressants. I take it when I am feeling low and
    it does pick me up and make me feel happier, but otherwise if I take it
    when i am happpy I barely feel it. Also this stuff is horribly bitter
    so eating it is tough and I find snorting to be better. Someone posted
    that this stuff is like having a noseful of hay and it is, but it
    doesn't really burn and the drip is decent enough. You can smoke it,
    but I find that smoking it causes a more sedated feeling than and
    uplifting mood fellings.



    Blue Lotus Tincture: This stuff really works, it makes you feel relaxed
    and sleepy, perfect for ending a stressful night or for insomnia. I got
    the tincture and it tastes horrible, extremely awful tasting, mixing it
    with a shot of liqour works better, I tried tea, but it still couldn't
    mask the taste. 3-7 Dropperfuls is what I have used.



    Yohimbe Tincture: This stuff works to as a stimulant, but nothing to
    mind blowing. I would have to campare it to taking 100mg of ephedrine,
    its good for workouts and as an appetite suppressant or as a morning
    pick me up. It has a slightly alcohol/cough syrup taste which isnt to
    bad. 3-5 dropperfuls is what I have been using.



    Morphing Blend: This stuff is a smoking blend that I purchased from a
    website, it contains passion flower, skullcap, blue lotus, damiana,
    mazteca and some others. On another forum someone said that this should
    be called "Morph Your Lungs Into Shit" and it should. It is extremely
    harsh to smoke, the harshest thisng I have ever smoked and it had no
    effects what so ever...maybe if you smoke bowl after bowl it might give
    you something but that would prolly be cause of lack of air. Don't buy
    this.

    Also does anyone else who has tried kanna experience 'kanna crashes'? I
    have used kanna numerous and numerous times and its great, but after
    about three hours after it has worn off and the sedated effects come in
    I get really really depressed for about an hour. I was just wondering
    if anyone else experiences this too or if its just me.

    I tried kanna but it did nothing for me. I think the product I got was poor in quality. It also had a terrible acidic taste to it, much worse than what people say.

    william again, have you tried placing the end of the dropper at the back of your toung and letting it almost drop into your throat to totally eliminate the taste.


    any euphoria attributed to the yoh.extract?Edited by: BEEKSc1

    I assume you mean with the blue lotus extract (placing that on my
    tongue). No I havent done that, I think that would be tricky cause the
    bitter taste buds are located on the back of the tongue and if any of
    that stuff dripped onto my tongue....I would vomit. I personally dont
    think that this stuff is worth the taste,



    As for the yohimbe, there is no euphoria. Like I said this is not a
    good speed alternative. Its good as a workout helper or an appetite
    suppressant or for a small boost. If it cost more I would say no way,
    but its cheap so try it. I also tends to give me a bit of heavy body
    feeling which is one drawback.



    I would like to say that morphing blend is getting a bit better, I have
    smoked it several times since I have posted this (I have an ounce to
    get rid of) and it does get better each time I smoke it. It now gives
    me a very slight marijuana like buzz from smoking a few bowls and this
    feeling last about 15 minutes, but again it is not anything to write
    home about.

    thats makes sense, i couldn't remember where the bitter taste were located on the tongue. if i can find some money, i am going to buy some Yohimbine HCl and i'll post and if you try the HCl version, lemme know what it's like.Edited by: BEEKSc1

    I found the best way to use lotus is buy the dried blossoms(many places sell online) and let them soak in red wine for 24-48 hours strain plant matter and enjoy. I use 1/2 once to 750ml of wine. White wine has same effect but icant stand the flavor. I recomend a strong merlot. Let me know if you like.[​IMG]
