    If an MAOI is consumed would smoking the phalaris grass be an active source for DMT?

    I read on erowid that one can boil the phalaris with water and lemon
    juice, then to drink a table spoon of the remaining liquid to
    have a nice trip. Is this true?

    Would you have to take an MAOI if this is the preperation that you would use?

    Phalaris grass has afairly low concentration of tryptaimes. To get effects from it you would need to do an extraction. Smoking philaris grass, with or without an MAOI, would not get you a DMT high.





    You probably could make a tea from philaris grass and combine it with an MAOI to get high. But you would need to look up data on concentraions of trypatines in phlaris grass to calculate your dose.


    Also Peganum harmala seeds, a source of short acting MAOIs,can make you very sick.


    I honestly tink MAOIs are more trouble than they are worth.

    Water,


    Smoking phalaris grass will lead to intoxication, you want the fresh (tops) growth as they contain the most DMT. MAOI's are not required as DMT is active when smoked, the MAOI is for ingestion. This organic grass may not beas potent as the extracted free-base, however it is quite active.

    Hmm I have never heard of smoking the tops of the phalaris, I might
    have to try this, would you have to dry the tops or would the burn
    fresh as you said.

    I'm sorry let me clarify...Freshly grow "The Terminal ends" I beleive would be the correct term. Yes dry/dehydrate the tops you cut and there you go. It's rather short lived but there can be a very strong effect. Good luck!

    THANK YOU DOC HOLLIDAY![​IMG][​IMG]





    Hopefully what you say is fact, and will produce the effects I'm looking for.

    It worked for me. Although I'll tell you right off, I had very little expectations. The best effects I've enjoyed were when I didn't know what to expect![​IMG]

    Well I'm sorry to hear that, perhaps the potency is different from strain to strain. I have tried this and it worked, I originallyread about of this from the reasearch papers of Johnathan Ott.

    Black-eyed,


    I was looking over the the various strains of Phalaris, to try and get to the bottom of this issue. Do you know what variety you have? I was using 'Phalaris Aquatica' or "Phalaris sp.AQ1" which is the Italian strain. I was not using the, 'reed canary grass' also know as "Phalaris Arduninacea".I should have been more detailed from the beginning, but it's been a few years. I hope thisinformation finds you well~Doc
