    So I was just scouring the internet in an attempt to stumble upon some obscure plants with possible psychoactivity and they found some articles on this plant.

    First off, it contains Umbellatine, which seems to have opiate-like activity as well as possible NMDA antagonism.

    Another compound found in this plant, Psychollatine appears to have anxiolytic effects and bind to the 5-HT2a subtype receptor.

    I was under the impression that most 5-HT2a agonists are psychedelic so they wonder if this compound might possibly have psychedelic properties if it does indeed act on those receptors. Needless to say this sounds like a very interesting plant. :thumbsup:
