Syrian Rue seeds

Description

Syrian rue(peganum harmala)

Amount: 10 gram

Dose: 2 doses

Ingredients: The primary active ingredients in P. harmala are harmine and harmaline.

Effect: Common use of Syrian rue has the effect of a psychopharmacological tool, making otherwise inactive plants active. Sometimes Syrian rue is used to strengthen and prolong the effects of substances that are active by themselves. Syrian rue prevents the breakdown of monoamine neurotransmitters by inhibiting the action of monoamine oxidase enzymes, a process known as MAO-inhibition. This renders substances like DMT and 5-MeO-DMT orally active and makes a psilocybin mushroom experience last longer and become stronger. A small number of people is experimenting with the effects of only Syrian rue infusions or smoked seeds. The effects of low doses are sometimes referred to as ‘the harmala buzz’, as it tends to cause a buzzing feeling throughout the head and body. This is also the initial stage for most people taking a higher dose, though it generally unfolds into a stronger experience associated with nausea, stomach cramps and vomiting. Also, psychedelic effects, such as visual and auditive distortions and mystical phenomena, seem to be common for some people.

How to use: It is possible to consume the seeds directly, by grinding them with your molars. Let the ground seeds have interplay with your saliva for half a minute up to a couple of minutes and swallow. Another way is to grind the seeds with a morter and put the powder in gelcaps. With these methods none of the active ingredients gets lost in the preparation process. For a Syrian rue only experience, doses are still experimental. People should start with 1 gram to see how they react. 5 grams is a high dose for most people. For potentiating a normal or high dose of oral DMT, taking 3 grams of seeds 15 to 60 minutes prior to the DMT is an established method. Taking more usually results in more physical discomfort and no stronger effect. The experience will last around 4 hours. The same method can be used prior to eating mushrooms, which will make the mushrooms 1½ to 2 times stronger. It also adds 1 to 3 hours to the duration. Another common preparation method, which is easier on the stomach and causes less nausea in general, is to make a hot water infusion. Part of the active ingredients can easily get lost in the process of this method, so add 1 to 2 grams to the doses mentioned earlier. 150 ml of water and 50 ml of lemonjuice per person is used. Simmer the finely ground seeds for 15 to 30 minutes on the lowest fire on your stove and strain the liquid, which is then ready for consumption. And finally, many people still use these seeds as an incense. In high amounts this can also cause MAO-inhibition, albeit of shorter duration in comparison with oral ingestion.

Warning: Peganum harmala contains MAO-inhibiting substances. This means it can be very dangerous when combined with certain foods or other psychoactives that are totally harmless when taken by themselves.

Abstract

Peganum harmala, commonly called “Syrian rue,” is native to countries around the Mediterranean sea and western United States. Known for its sedative effects when consumed by farm animals, its seeds have stimulant and hallucinogenic effects at low doses (3-4 g when eaten) in humans. Its active ingredients harmaline and harmine have monoamine oxidase inhibitor properties. A 41-year-old female prepared a hot drink by boiling approximately 100 g of P. harmala seeds in water (10-20 times the recommended dose for “calming one’s nerves”). Upon presentation to the emergency department, she was unconscious and had hypertension, tachycardia, and tachypnea. Hepatic and renal function markers were grossly elevated. After intubation, she improved with supportive care over the course of five days. Her level of consciousness, renal and hepatic markers gradually returned to normal. Poisoning with high doses of Peganum harmala can be life-threatening, although patients usually recover with supportive therapy alone.
