Xhosa has been used for millennia by the Xhosa Shaman of South Africa to induce vivid, waking, lucid dreams, enabling direct communication and interaction with the Spirit World. Legal everywhere, with no known bad side-effects. The roots of the flowering Silene Capensis plant contain psychoactive components which have earned it a status as an ‘AChEI inhibitor,’ meaning that science has almost endorsed this as an effective lucid dreaming aid. You can tell just from the robust aroma emitted by this plant that it’s a truly magical plant, on many levels.
