An 18-year-old man was taken to the emergency room after ingesting 12 Hawaiian liana seeds. The patient complained of nausea, vomiting, dizziness, auditory hallucinations, blurred vision and diaphoresis. The results of the physical examination showed tachycardia (heart rate, 110 beats per minute), hypertension (blood pressure, 170/90 mm Hg), nystagmus and dilated pupils (7 mm). The patient spent the night in a telemetry bed and normal saline was administered intravenously. Al-Assmar SE. The seeds of the Hawaiian bundle are a powerful hallucinogen. Arch Intern Med 1999;159:2090. In order to take account of recent developments in the market for new psychoactive substances, the Commission has started an evaluation of Council Decision 2005/387/JHA, which should be completed by the end of 2010. The evaluation will not only focus on the implementation of the legal instrument, but will also analyse the new challenges of the volatile market and assess what further legal measures can be taken to better regulate the emergence and sale of new synthetic and/or plant-based psychoactive substances. Hawaiian cistus is not listed in the Misuse of Drugs Act, likely because the seeds are natural products. Either way, it`s legal to possess it. However, it is illegal to sell it for the sole purpose of human consumption. Large legal traders circumvent this legal loophole by having “not for human consumption” on the packaging.
The Hawaiian Woodrose is a climber with large fur seeds. The seeds of Argyreia nervosa, also known as Hawaiian wood rose seeds, contain psychedelic LSA (lysergic acid), and taking them can cause severe hallucinations. The seeds are usually chewed and spit out or crushed and dissolved in a liquid. They look a bit like chocolate chips, but with a very hard texture. The European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) points out that hallucinogenic plant seeds such as Ipomoea tricolor (morning glory) and Argyreia nervosa (Hawaiian cistus) are marketed via the Internet under the name “dream flowers”. The seeds are used in the flower trade, but also marketed on the Internet under the name “smart medicines” or “bio-drugs”. The seeds contain the natural psychedelic D-lysergic acid amine (LSA), which is closely related to lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), an internationally controlled psychotropic substance listed in Schedule I of the 1971 United Nations Convention on Psychotropic Substances. While ergine is listed as a Schedule III substance of the DEA in the United States, Hawaiian liana is not controlled. Thus, although possession of part of the plant is legal, the extraction of Ergeg is punishable under US law, but no such prosecution has taken place. The plant is not controlled as the main precursor of a controlled substance, because the synthesis of LSD from ergine is possible but not practical.
Don`t let the cute name fool you, these babies are potentially deadly. Yes, they are legal, but that doesn`t mean they`re harmless. In addition to giving you hallucinations, they can also make you awkward as if there is no tomorrow. To find out exactly what they can do to you, read on. HBW seeds are actually what is called a “legal high”. To learn more about Legal Highs, click here. Argyreia nervosa (Argyreia nervosa), not to be confused with Hawaiian Woodrose (Merremia tuberosa), is a perennial climbing plant, also known as Elephant Creeper and Woolly Morning Glory. Native to the Indian subcontinent and many parts of the world, including Hawaii, Africa and the Caribbean, it can be invasive, although it is often appreciated for its aesthetic value. The seeds of the plant contain ergot alkaloids, including non-hallucinogenic LSA (ergine), which is a chemical analogue of LSD.
Hawaiian Baby Woodrose seeds are sometimes used as legally available psychedelics, although the legality of consuming the seeds is ambiguous in some countries. One way or another. Simple personal possession is legal, but unauthorized sale is illegal under the Food and Drugs Act. Unauthorized import and export is prohibited by criminal law under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. The Hawaiian baby Woodrose is a member of the Convolvulaceae family, which also includes morning glory (Ipomoea). Argyreia Nervosa grows in a huge climbing vine of great beauty and decorative value. These 30-foot vines have large heart-shaped leaves and clusters of 2-3″ purple flowers that turn into attractive pods that really look like a cistus. It is native to Asia and has been naturalized and cultivated in Hawaii. The pods dry into a smooth, dark brown, felt-sized capsule with one to four hairy brown seeds. The capsule is surrounded by a dry calyx divided into five petal-shaped sections. The seeds are both hallucinogenic and toxic.
Paulke A, Kremer C, Wunder C, Wurglics M, Schubert-Zsilavecz M, Toennes SW. Identification of legal highs – ergot alkaloid motifs in two Argyreia nervosa products. 2014;242:62-71. The seeds of the Hawaiian liana (Argyreia nervosa) are used by teenagers as a supposedly hallucinogenic drug. These seeds are legally available and widely sold. The active components are alkaloids, which are structurally related to lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). However, the psychological effects are very different from those of LSD and are dominated by more calming and unpleasant autonomic disorders similar to the effects of scopolamine. The (psycho)pharmacological profile is described by the active substances lysergacidamide and lysergacid ethylamide (and their isomers). It has been shown that neither the substances themselves nor the mixture are capable of inducing perceptual variations similar to those of LSD. Exposure to argyreia nervosa is described, with emphasis on possible fetal exposure to contained ergometrine and history of intoxication.
If you take Hawaiian rose seeds, you can expect the following: Hawaiian liana seeds have been considered a natural substitute for LSD, which, as a chemical, produces stronger hallucinations. LSD is the best-known and most studied psychedelic. This is the standard to which all other psychedelics are compared. It is active in extremely low doses and is most often available on blotters or in liquid form. Hawaiian vine could increase a chemical in the brain called serotonin. Some medications also increase serotonin. Taking Hawaiian woodrose with these medications can increase serotonin too. This can cause serious side effects such as severe headaches, heart problems, chills, confusion, and anxiety. Some of these medications include fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil), sertraline (Zoloft), amitriptyline (Elavil), clomipramine (Anafranil), imipramine (Tofranil), sumatriptan (Imitrex), zolmitriptan (Zomig), rizatriptan (Maxalt), methadone (Dolophin), tramadol (Ultram) and many others. The plant is a rare example of a plant whose hallucinogenic properties were only recently discovered by non-Hawaiians. While its cousins in the winch family, such as Rivea corymbosa (Ololiuhqui) and Ipomoea tricolor (Tlitliltzin), have been used for centuries in shamanic rituals in Latin America, Hawaiian cistus has not been traditionally recognized as a hallucinogen. Its properties were first noticed in the 1960s, although the chemical composition of its seeds is almost identical to that of the two species mentioned above, and the seeds contain the highest concentration of psychoactive compounds in the entire family.
