Rivea corymbosa (common synonym: Turbina corymbosa), belongs to the group of morning glory plants which are native to Latin American countries, from Mexico in the North to Peru in the South and it is widely naturalised elsewhere. Its seeds grow out into a perennial climbing vine with white flowers, often planted as an ornamental plant.
For a long time, not many others than the indigenous peoples of Mexico had knowledge about the use of ololiuqui. In this area, it was the most widely used hallucinogenic. Today you can find the seeds in almost all the villages of Oaxaca, where they serve the natives by providing help or answers to them. The seeds are used for their psychedelic purposes by the Aztec priests in order to communicate with their gods. Ololiuqui is also used in traditional Mexican medicine as a cure for flatulence, to remedy venereal troubles, to dull pain, and to remove tumours. It's been said to work miracles when properly propitiated.
Ololiuqui seeds trip
Ololiuqui does not produce direct hallucinations, the trip is comparable to the hypnotic state produced by morning glory. The Native Mexicans report powerful visions, even at lower doses. This is possibly due to cultural conditioning and the guiding of shamans.
The essential psychoactive substance is ergine. It has been demonstrated that this produces a dreamlike trance or even a twilight sleep with visionary images.
The traditional and most suitable method of preparation is to soak the finely ground or chewed seeds in half a cup of water for several hours, then consuming both the water and seeds.
The traditional dose consists of 14 to 22 seeds (R. Gordon Wasson, 'Ololiuqui and the other hallucinogens of Mexico' in 'Homenaje a Roberto J. Weitlaner'. 1971). There have been experiments where these amounts elicited no effects among Western subjects.
Do not drive vehicles and do not take part in traffic. Do not use ololiuqui seeds if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Persons that feel depressed, afraid, sad or down must not use ololiuqui.
Persons with a family history of schizophrenia should be very careful, use of these seeds may trigger mental problems.
