    I don't understand what you're trying to do. You can't take it to get
    'high' off of it. Sassafras contains safrole which is a precursor to
    mdma. Unless if you're a chemist, that oil is useless to you.

    Yes that works! I have to find on a book that from 30 to 50 gouts it was active!
    I took 50 gouts yesterday evening with two friends (be carrefullthat has a horrible taste, this morning I still had the taste in the throat(breast).) and approximately 30 minutes later, I had the best mdmatrip which I have never had. That to last neighborhood 4 or 5 hours. According to a friend who in already taken by the mda it would be closer to that this than to the mdma.
    I do not think that I would resume it, but it is especially because of the taste. The effect it was one perfect"love" as I have never had.

    Be ware! Sassafrass oil is a carcinogen. My late grandfather drank his
    sassafrass tea for days every spring. He called it a nerve tonic. He
    harvested the sassafrass tree roots every year and boiled up the bark in a
    coffie pot. The stuff was full of oil dropletts and had a pink clor to it. I
    tried it and it tasted pretty good with milk and shugar. Unfortunately
    grandad died of bladder cancer. Wouldn't be surprised if it was because
    of his special tea.

    I also heard quite a bit about sassafrass oil causing cancer. I'm not sure about the effects, but I wouldn't make it a regular thing.

    I dought you got an MDMA buzz from drinking Sassafrass oil. It is also unhealthy.

    Thank you. It is clear that I would not take back it any more. Already because of the taste. And in more for
    These carcinogenic effects. (Even if I also smoke some tobacco).
    I had heard about it. But I heard that the essential oil was classified as carcinogenic later that one Discovered that it was a precursor of the mda. And that it had very few studies there.

    Actually the cancer causing nature of sassafrass oil has been known for
    a long time. It used to be the stuff that gave the soda pop called "Root
    Beer" its flavor. When it was found to cause cancer Root Beer was then
    made from other safer flavor chemicals, or from oil from which the
    safrole was removed. Safrole is actually the cancer causing chemical.

    This cancer, however, has been limited to mice and rats. There is no
    evidence to be found that it ever caused cancer despite the widespread
    use as sassafras tea in the SE USA. Its not like chronic root beer
    drinkers found themselves with liver cancer. There is no report that I
    know of that safrole ever caused cancer in humans. Death, yes. The IARC
    lists it as 2B - "possible carcinogen".



    http://potency.berkeley.edu/text/drugmetrev.table13.html

    (full article - http://potency.berkeley.edu/text/drugmetrev.html)

    shows 50/50 cancer risk in rats at a dose of 441 mg per kilogram per
    day
    . That's a lot. The 50/50 one-time oral lethal dose is 1950 mg
    per kilogram in rats (less toxic than aspirin), according to the Merck Index. It is hardly surprising that
    rats fed 22% of the lethal dose every day developed problems
    eventually.
