trichocereus cactusethnobotanical cactikratom plant mitragyna speciosa

Genesis 3:3-6 "But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat."

Can you tell which ethnobotanicals are the fruit(s)?
Fruit is plural in this case in hebrew.(post translation)

I promised myself not to link to anyone who sold "grey area stuff"
or had shamanic anything on their shop or website.

A warning against religious discrimination Department Of Justice Civil Rights Division.. Psalm 91:1

"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. "But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you" (Matthew 5:43–44).

Quick note: Freemasons are stomping on toes and trying to cheat, in order to be the only ones that can sell ethnobotanicals. It happened to me. Because of this, I suggest growing your own everything(legal only, no grey-area or illegal plants), and begin seeking independence. You'll get way better product if you just grow your own(but nothing illegal or grey area of the law). Buy the seeds, and make sure you look up how to germinate and grow them as each plant requires specific needs. I cite academic sources on this cite and share my own experiences as well.

Ethnobotanicals are plants that have had a complex relationship with human beings since the beginning. Ethnobotany is the study of the cultural use of plants, hints "ethno" ( which has to do with ethnicity ). They tend to be psychoactive, and or have some sort of spiritual beliefs, or cultural appreciation associated with them. They range from medicinal, to recreational, to straight up poisonous. I use the bible to warn against dangerous doctrine(and personal experience), while not flat out condemning the plants. I don't agree with most Christians that certain botanicals are "bad" all around, as the context of use matters, and each plant is different. I judge each plant accordingly, and try to give non-bias information, and share personal insight, and experiences to add value and originality to the content herein. I also share academic sources to illustrate that these "ethnobotanicals" are of major interest to big pharmaceutical corporations, hints why they are policed (even though most of them are not illegal). Selling them can get a white van parked outside of your house... A lot of them are in a "grey area" of the law, meaning they contain or produce controlled substances(God-made phytochemicals in many instances), yet the plant itself is not illegal to have or sell, trade or grow. Often times the seeds are the only legal part of a particular plant, and sellers online take advantage of this. This info is provided for intel and educational purposes only, for both civilians and government.

A warning: Not all, but a lot of "ethnobotanicals", have some sort of shamanic doctrine connected to them. Shamanism is witchcraft, and is everything warned against in Deuteronomy 18 (necromancy, soothsaying, fortune telling, omen interpretation, and pharmakeia(divination through psychedelic plants) I am a Christian, but I do not flat out condemn these plants. I judge each one according to its fruit like the bible says. I do not hold shamans using something against a plant. That's not how I judge. Plus, I find information on these plants to be helpful, as I create harm reduction on this site, and inform the public. I expose the truth about the nature of medicine, where it all comes from, who makes it (God). God is the original author of narcotics ( opium, Cannabis, etc ). There are a lot of deadly and dangerous plants out there that are legal and I am here to expose them as well. Some are tied to sorcery and witchcraft and I expose that herein. I'm here to serve God and provide good intel.

Here is a warning about turning back to the ways of your ancestors: 11:11 Jeremiah 11:9-11 This has to do with the 2nd commandment as well, scary. ( See Exodus 20 ) Abide. 10 They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. 11 Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them. Freemasons and the occult have turned the church away from seed bearing herbs, and onto their modern alchemical pharmakeia ( big pharmaceuticals ). The truth is, drug companies make drugs from plants, and freebase drugs from them as well. Even LSD was discovered, not invented, by a phytochemist named Albert Hoffman, who worked for a drug company. Modern drugs(pills) are made using the scientific knowledge gathered through the study of phytochemistry. The false God of asclepious and heremes trigsmagistus are tied to the modern medical industry and the occult. I'm all about seed bearing herbs and even Cannabis and other controversial plants when used properly, but I expose the false teachings of fasle Gods often attributed to some of these ethnobotanicals and "entheogens".

Beware, the word "entheogen" is being thrown around by shops these days. An "entheogen" could be something like how Christians use wine(according to wikipedia's definition anyway), or how the rastafarians use Cannabis, but it can also be something called "pharmakeia"(more the mckenna brother and other scholars definition, as well as krystle cole and bouncing bear botanicals, which is forbidden by the bible and has to do with divination and witchcraft basically(shamanism)[making a false god of a substance like lsd etc]("the neon god they made", so to speak.. Some of the most shocking facts that I expose on this website are that most illegal narcotics are God-made substances that exist naturally in plants. Some examples inlude: heroine(free-based from Poppies), codeine, morphine, and cocaine(free-based from the Coca plant). You could say that ethnobotanicals are from the garden of Eden. Can you tell which one is it that God said don't eat? There are a few plants on here that I am strongly against the use of for human consumption ( I strongly advise against consuming them ) There are others that I am all about, and would like to see governments leave them alone. Sadly, most of the church is brainwashed by the freemasons and other pagan cults, and they're on all kinds of pharmaceutical narcotics. Simultaneously, they run around condemning plant narcotics, as if God would prefer you be on a man-made one, than his. Remember, modern pharmaceuticals are nothing more than advanced covert alchemy, an occult practice.

Ecclesiastes 3:1 "There is a time and a purpose for everything under the heavens."

Ecclesiasticus 38:4 "The Lord hath created medicines out of the earth; and he that is wise will not abhor them."





If a particular plant is not listed on this page, you may find it under herbs instead.

I want to go about this in several ways. I have provided a list of dangerous plants(often mis-marketed as "psychedelic" or "a legal high"), and then another list of other ethnobotanicals that are not so dangerous, but still incredibly psychoactive, even psychedelic. Finally a third list is my personal favorite list of ethnobotanicals.

Datura, Henbane, Bella Donna(Nightshade), Scotch Broom, Voacanga africana, Amanita muscaria/pantherina; African Dream Herb(the doctrine tied to it is dangerous not the seeds), Chilean Holly (Desfontainia spinosa)

Cannabis, Kratom, Khat, Kava, San Pedro, Iboga, Ephedra, Betel Nuts, Coca(the plant not the cocaine free-based)

Ayahuasca, Betel Nuts, Nightshade, Chaliponga, Chacruna, Cannabis, Cebil, Datura, Damiana, Ephedra, False Peyote, Henbane, Iboga, Psilocybin, Kratom, Mandrake, Poppy, Salvia, Morning Glories & Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, Kanna, Khat

I want to emphasize the distinction in different types of psychoactive plants. There is: Recreational narcotic type "psychoactives", then there's poisonous psychoactives (aka dilerants), and then there's subtle psychoactives ( tea, coffee, st johns wort ), and then there is psychedelic psychoactives.. "Psychoactive", doesn't necessarily mean "narcotic". It doesn't necessarily mean you'll enjoy it either, nor does it mean that it is dangerous OR safe. I want to draw this distinction. There have been a lot of shops online that carelessly market some of these plants as "legal highs". This is dangerous, and misleading. I can't condemn them all either, because some of my favorites are on this list. Very few plants however, produce desirable recreational/medicinal noticable narcotic effects ( this excludes psychedelics ).

Salvia divinorum

Salvia divinorum is mentioned in a book called "Salvia divinorum, drugs of the dreaming mind", which I advise against buying because it is new age occult/shamanic. It mentions the phrase "drugs of the new world" often. Anyway, it cites academic sources to confirm the potential of Salvia as an oneirogen. An oneirogen is a substance that stimulates dreams or the recall thereof, or that enhances them(or is believed to). It has a shamanic history, and a lot of Christians don't know about the occult connection to certain things being sold out in the open. In my opinion, I think of it as more of a dilerant when used while awake anyway, than a psychedelic. I believe it was misclassified.

Psychoactive Cactus That Contains Psychedelic Mescaline(or related substances):

All of these Cactus are legal to own, buy, trade, and possess in the USA. They are not legal to use to manufacture(extract) illegal drugs however. They are the same thing on the inside as Peyote(Mescaline containing cactus). Some of these contain very similar substances as well, including dopamine. Bouncing Bear Botanicals used to sell them before the illegal raid. They are readily available for sale all across the US. In fact, Walmart even sells a book called "Psychoactive cactus" where I cited this stuff. I had to throw the book away though because of the shamanic stuff(Deuteronomy 18). You can buy the book on Amazon too. I won't even make profit off of it due to fear of God and logic(yeah duh don't support what you're against). Supporting anyone on here who has ties to shamanism(witchcraft), or bringing anything into your home that promotes it, will bring the wrath of God upon you. Be forewarned.

I can't suggest the book below, but for the sake of citing it and showing you how common this information is ( hidden in plain sight ), I am citing it. This book can be purchased at walmart and on amazon. Crazy no? It has shamanic crap in it, so as a fair warning to Christians, posessing it will open a door.
