Calea Zacatechichi is a densely branched shrub, which grows In Central America. Its height reaches 3 meters, the plant has oval leaves with a toothed border. It blooms with yellow flowers. Its best habitat are altitudes above 1500 meters. It chooses the same subsoil as oaks and pines, so we can often see them grow in close proximity. Mexico boasts the largest occurrence, but we can find Calea also on Yucatan and in Costa Rica.
Effects of Calea
Lucid dreaming is considered to be the most fundamental effect. This is a state in which we dream of very colorful dreams full of a story. Above all, we are able to realize that we are dreaming. Another bonus is the ability to remember individual dreams. After drinking this tea, we begin to feel tired, broadened senses, perception of the environment, but also imagination.
Tea for lucid dreaming: One dose is 10 – 20 grams, pour half a liter of boiling water and let it infuse for 10 – 15 minutes, drink before going to bed.
Medicinal tea: pour 5-10 g of hot water, let it soak or boil for a few minutes. Drink at any time during the day.
Fumigation: pour a pinch of herbs on hot coals.
Smoking: Roll your Calea cigarette or use it in your ritual pipe. It tastes pleasant, it evokes a pleasant “prophetic state”, but it’s a little weaker than drinking tea.
Please note that Calea zacatechichi is very, very bitter in taste. You can weaken its bitter taste with sour ingredients.
Be aware that vomiting may occur at high doses, it is part of the body’s cleansing process. Pregnant women, breast-feeding women, people with low blood pressure, cardiovascular problems, diabetes or breathing problems should not use Calea. Not recommended for children under 5 years of age.
