Egyptian Dream Flower
Blue Lotus is a beautiful water flower, that has been used for thousands of years as a mild psychoactive plant.
Blue Lotus was intimately known to the Ancient Egyptians, where it played an important part in various aspects of their culture. The plant was widely popular for its aphrodisiac and mild psychedelic properties.
Blue Lotus can often be found depicted on the walls inside Ancient Egyptian tombs. This leads researchers to believe that Ancient Egyptians used Blue Lotus also for religious purposes due to its psychoactive effects.
Blue Lotus contains apomorphine and nuciferine. Apomorphine has been described as a psychoactive alkaloid and is a non-selective dopamine agonist which stimulates dopamine receptors and improves motor function. Nuciferine is an alkaloid associated with dopamine receptor blockade.
Blue Lotus is a very subtle plant which can have a variety of effects depending on dosage, method of administration, and whether you take it with other substances. It can provide a mild sense of tranquillity and euphoria, along with an altered sense of awareness. It is mildly psychoactive and may even lead to entheogenic or spiritual experiences when taken in larger doses, which can be used to enhance your meditative and introspective practices. As an aphrodisiac, it can increase sexual desire and satisfaction. It also has a euphoric yet relaxing effect, so falling asleep after taking it is not uncommon. So Blue Lotus flower is also used as a sleep aid, to reduce anxiety and as a stress reliever – among other uses. It can create a pleasant feeling of warmth around the head and upper body and a dream like feeling – as if the life itself were a waking dream.
