Product information


Ipomoea tricolor (Morning Glory) is a species of flowering plant in the family Convolvulaceae, native to the New World tropics, and widely cultivated and naturalised elsewhere. The seeds, vines, flowers, and leaves contain ergoline alkaloids, and have been used for centuries by many Mexican Native American cultures as an entheogen; they were known to the Aztecs as tlitliltzin, the Nahuatl word for "black" with a reverential suffix. In South America, the seeds are also known as badoh negro.

Effects of Morning Glory seeds

The hallucinogenic properties of the seeds are usually attributed to ergine (also known as d-lysergic acid amide, or LSA), which produces effects similair to LSD. LSA is a psychedelic that produces many of the typical or "classic" effects of other drugs in this category (like mescaline and psilocybine). This includes visual changes such as an enhancement of the perception of color, tracers, and after-images. Emotion and mentation are also strongly affected. Some LSA users experience unusual thought patterns, such as a "looping" of the same thought or perceived experience over a period of time. Often during an LSA experience, users become intrigued by topics and ideas that they normally are not very interested in.

The primary effects last 6-10 hours when the seeds are taken orally. For up to 3 hours after the effects have primarily ended, users may still notice minor visual alterations in colors and brightness. Some people feel "spacey" or empty headed during this period as well.

Please keep in mind that with most users, morning glory causes strong nausea before the trip starts, which can last more than an hour.

How to use Morning Glory seeds

- Chew for as long as possible and swallow.
- Grind and soak in water for 1/2 hour, strain and drink.
- Sprout by soaking in water for 3-4 days (change water often), after which the white mushy part is removed from the shell and eaten. This is probably the best method for avoiding side effects, although it makes the effects a little bit less intensive.
