About dream herb (Calea Zacatechichi)
Calea Zacatechichi, better known as dream herb or bittergrass, is part of the Asteraceae family and therefore related to sunflowers and daisies. In the wild, dream herb grows in Mexico and parts of Central America. This medium-sized shrub with trumpet-like, yellow flowers is also called Thle-pelakano in Mexico, which means 'leaf of god'. Calea zacatechichi was traditionally used by Mexican shamans to get divine messages during their dreams.
Effects of dream herb
Calea is mainly associated with vivid and clear dreams. It can also help to create lucid dreams. A lucid dream is a dream in which you are aware that you are dreaming. In the waking state, dream herb gives a languid effect and there is an increased state of consciousness.
Pour half a litre of hot water over 3 to 25 grams of dried leaves and let it steep for about 15 minutes. As the taste is quite bitter, some sugar or honey may be added. The powder variant can also be capsured. Calea zacatechichi can be taken before going to bed, but works best if you take it after about 3-4 hours of sleep (set your alarm clock), and then continue sleeping. Dreams last longer in the last half of the night. Repeat several days (3 to 7) for even better results.
Dream herb and cannabis
If you want to get your dreams under control, it is important to make your REM sleep as long as possible. Cannabis has a negative effect on REM sleep, so the effect of dream herb can be less pronounced. For best results it is therefore best not to smoke weed for a while before using Calea.
Calea contains a large amount of flavones and sesquiterpene lactones. Both are organic compounds that occur in many plants. Two sesquiterpene lactones are probably responsible for the mind-altering effect, namely kaleicin and kalechromene.
Keep Calea zacatechichi in its original packaging in a dry and cool place, out of the reach of children.
