Nikola -- Well, i was able to sit still and concentrate enough to watch a whole movie without getting up. And i usually get up 3-5 times for whatever reason.
I was able to remember movie as we talked about it after watching, it actually(maybe?) seemed to enhance my memory. As we talked about the movie tons of references popped into my head about the conversation. But im not sure if i would lay that one out for the imphepho though. Probably just happenstance(or coincidence, whichever fits better).

Sounds like a very useful herb. I'll give it a go as soon as my wallet agrees with me on that one :)

hey, I was just hoping it doesn't have a bad effect on concentration, and judging by the experiences, it could even improve it a little. exactly what I'm looking for

YES! Any new news on that?

I would REALLY be interested if we could figure out a way to ISOLATE the magic in this plant! ;)

This thread seemed to die a while ago, but I've been wondering if anyone's tried an extract of this plant. It looks like all the reports are of the flowers. Also, I don't own a scale and I have no idea how to eyeball the weight of these fluffy-looking flowers. Can they be rolled up in a "cigarette" and if so, how many cigarettes would be necessary for an effect for a small-framed person?

What does a tea from the flowers taste like? I have a nagging suspicion it is bitter, but I'd love to hear from experience.

I wouldnt suggest rolling imphepho flowers in a spliff. They burn very hot and i can imagine that would tear your throat up. Need water filtration! I dont think you need a scale for this either. ;) Thing that bugs me about imphepho flowers(not really), is that you can grind them up, they just turn into fluffy flowery cotton candy type consistency. Very strange.

Tea is not bitter, it is pleasant if you add some fruitiness to it. Hibiscus flowers and some P.rhoeas does nicely.
