    Banana

    I've heard about it... and recently read a nice little post on another forum while stumbling on it? Is there such a thing such as bananadine?

    Is this the smoking-banana-peels myth you are referring too?

    none of it is true.

    LOL it's still a hoax guys

    The closest bananas can get to psychedelic drugs is decarboxylation of tryptophan and phenylalanine (by smoking), resulting in INACTIVE tryptamine and phenethylamine. And I doubt these reaction occur very smoothly....
    as we separate and compare

    Bananas raise the serotonine level in your brains.
    Serotonine makes you feel happy and makes you sleep good.

    I guess so. I still wish someone would try this method. Maybe I'll try it just to settle any doubt I have sometime.

    The original story came from the 60s . Its was said to be the strings that hang off the inside of the peel whan you peel them that one could smoke and get a trip . It was proved to be untrue then . It a perfect example of the web shit that people are still pushing and confusing others with . Bananas and chocolate are suposed to contain seretonin , but not in enough quantitys to have any noticable effect . You would have to eat kilos to get an effect wich would be ruined by having to spend hours being sick while sitting on the toilet .

    The psychedelic chemical was suposed to be called "Musa Sapientum bananadine" and to make it one was supposed to have to take the strings from 15 pounds , = about 7 kilos , and boil them in water for 3 - 4 hours . Then take that mush and spread it on a coockie sheet and dry it in an oven for 20 mins. to half an hour . This results in about 1 pound , = about 453 gramms , of black powder . To get an effect one was supposed to have to smoke 3 - 4 joints of it .

    = its all total bananas !!!
    If in doubt double the dose

    I first saw lettuce "opium" in a headshop in the portobello road in London in 1972/3 . I bought it and tried it ....... once and never again . The same with damiana . I also tried the "opium" from california poppys and it was the same .

    I cant think of anything that is legal that actualy does anything nice , or is worth taking .

    most legal things make you itch in my opinion. im a fan of ephedrine ( i dont get much from speed for some reason, aversion therapy i think) but dont take it more than a couple times a year, its my theory (here we go) that soma was ephedra. someone took back some from afghanistan where they call it sauma or sooma. could be coincidence

    "most legal things make you itch in my opinion"

    Yup , me three . Thats why i hate the feeling of Ephedrin ants walking over my skin .

    I dont think that Soma was Ephedrin because the description of what Soma did doesnt fit with the effects of Ephedrin . I think it was an Ayahuasca analog . I wrote an explanation about why i came to that conclusion . If i remember where it is here i will let you know .

    Yeah well, ephedrine is quite nice - as a remedy for cold and if you are really tired and need to be on beat. But that's about it...
    Ephedrine as a recreational drug is shit because it activates your fight-or-flight response. With speed (=amphetamines) I get a boost in social skills and bonding, with ephedrine it's just about the different for me (or at least no difference to normal)

    About the banana thing, watch this: http://youtube.com/watch?v=Q1cfTMdjkYM
    and you'll see that even in the 60ies they were already making fun of it (or was this were the myth started? I don't know...)

    true, i have been arrested on ephedrine, im not a very good runner so i dont try. i cant take speed anymore and enjoy it. it doesnt make me talkative or social just clamps my jaw shut and makes me iritable so i dont bother. ephedra i only take when ive some miles to cover and used all reserves

    Re: Banana

    let's put it this way, if it was true, everyone would know. it would be no secret lol and banannas would probably be illegal.
