I have the lotus extract, now how to do?
smoke it? or other?
what's the psychedelic effect ?
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.
cool ,how much grams?
Effects are said to start at 5 grams the more the better, do experimenting and see what dosage you think you like best.
What is suposed to be the active ingredient in this stuff?
That might help us know how to use it.
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
lotus give's alucination?
It is said to be a little hallucinatory at higher doses, but mainly hypnotic.
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.
uqlfy around how much grams of flower would you use soaked in wine for the stronger psychedelic effects?
The most I've ever used was 2.5oz/750ml. I let them
soak about a week. This gave me definite time dilation and a few minor
cev and oev. Sedative/Hypnotic effects were very pronounced at
this point as well. I say it is pyschedelic more because of the state
of mind it produces.
So I would say if one managed to stay awake
after consuming more than this it would definitly trance one out.
Ok, What does your blue lotus look like? That smells like the shit from [Mod Edit: Source removed] and then when mix some up it taste just like it too. So I am pretty sure it is blue lotus. I have soaked more than two onces in vodka and in port. I think one time I let it set for almost five days. The other times I got anxious and it was about overnight. I tried boiling some in water and vodka, but I was unable to drink it, because of outside reasons unrelated to the taste or actual stuff. But I have not had satisfactory effects; I originally had very high expectations of blue lotus and I still have a shitload left.
I would like to know what yalls stuff looks like and any possible pointers or tips that might help me get the most out of my lotus powder. I think My favorite way to do itwas 2+oz.soaked in port, but I only had minimal effects.
Seems like I read somewhere that the stamens from the fresh flowers are the most potent part. Ihave seeds and can't get them germinate so far. Does anyone know how to do this?
This is my blue lotus. Is this howyour's looks???Any and all tips and advice will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hey not supposed to quote sources here but your stuff looks like
mine except mine is mainly blue. Perhaps something in your diet is
antagonistic to alkaloids or maybe try fasting a few hours before
ingesting. Or of course it could be quality is low.
Its rough you got so much and not getting
effects . Try small amount from different source see
what happens. Legal plants are same as illegal ones never buy quantity
till you know quality.
I use Yellow Tail brand wine. Merlot. Its imported from australia.
As for growing never tried. One thing does come to mind though Lotus is
from egypt they grow near nile river. The nile is very fertile compared
to other water sources. Maybe extra fertilizer and
lots of moisture will germinate your seeds.

Hey panchovilla it just occuered to me
maybe you got PINK LOTUS blossoms
2+oz in port with little effects, then it is definatly low quality. I used around 10 grams soaked in merlot, mine where blue/light-grey flowers, and let it soak for 1.5 weeks. The effects where outstanding.
Holy crap! I am starting to think that this one of the other types of lotus or lilies, instead of blue lotus, becausehe offeredabout three different kinds.Nymphea caerulea is the only one I ever heard of being usedwith effects. Damn, maybe I got the pink. Well it tasted like other blue lotus that I got from the only other source I tried. Well I need to email this dude anywayz. Thanks.
how much of the wine would one have to consume to get effects?
say someone soaked 28g in 750ml wine and let it soak for a week or
two. how many glasses/shots? would it take for effects?
I aldo just found out I can get 10:1 resin extract, woul dthis be smokable? or try t o disolve the resin in the alcohol?
aparently the author of "naked lunch" cured himself from a herion addiction with this stuff too!
Yeah I've been meaning to try this product as well. I've bee
eyeing up a blue lotus absolute oil product. How do you
ingest this product or is it safe to not sure seems to be pretty high
I would suggest finding out for yourself, plant quality varies
and in my experiences giving some to friends effects/amounts varies
alot from person to person.
As for myself I start by chuggin down first glass(about 6ml i
guess) then i just keep sippin till i reach desired buzz.
Just looked at this again and I meant 6oz for my first glass. Well
sorry about that but I guess an underdose is alot better than an
