New Psychedelic Root Discovered
A group in Taiwan has discovered that the roots of acacia confusa are a very highly active DMT source. K. Trout had pointed this out in his books, but no bioassays were really available on this particular plant until now.
Acacia confusa root can not only be worked with in conjunction with Syrian rue or caapi, but it can be used alone as has been discovered recently on the DMT nexus forum by a brave explorer.
The brave psychonaught reportedly drank 5 table spoons of root made into a light tea by itself, no betacarbolines added. He was then thrust into a very difficult and high dosage DMT journey. The roots of the plant are active and very powerful. Remarkably Acacia Confusa has one of the highest yeilds of DMT discovered in nature. That it is active with out the addition of a harmala alkaloid is amazing, and reminiscent of reports of cold water extracted Jurema or mimosa hostilus root bark, which has been a real hit or miss in bioassays.
There are also reports that Confusa may have a traditional history of use as an entheogen by the original peoples of Taiwan. Today it is currently used in Chinese medicine with whispers that the old herbalists know that it can take one to another world.
The organization in Taiwan that leads ceremonies wrote a nice report on an acacia confusa ayahuasca analog recipe. According to reports the recipe utilized stem bark in the brew instead of root bark, the stem bark being much weaker in content.
Quote from Taiwan chinahuasca brewer to Mindbody...
"I introduced it to Taiwan after my friend telling me about it while I was living on Orchid Island. We found a tree scraped off some of the root bark, boiled it for a couple of hours with some Syrian Rue and a few kiwis. That's how it began. The second time I took it, I was told to move to Tainan on the west coast of Taiwan and start using it as therapy to help people change their lives."
