I've been looking for a cheap herbal substitute as of lately, and came across vervain. Checking both erowid and shroomery logs, I have found little information on it except that it relaxes and helps strengthen the immune system. The iamshaman description is:
This ancient plant has been used in herbal medicine to treat nervous problems and insomnia. It was also considered an herb of inspiration and has long been regarded as a powerful ally of poets and writers. More recently, the Pawnee Indians used vervain to improve their dreaming, and is often referred to as the North American version of Calea Zacatechichi.

I have never used Calea, though heard enough about it. If it's helpful for my writing, then I'd be especially pleased to have some. Anyone have any experience with vervain? For $15 a pound, even if there are mild effects it wouldn't be wasted, especially if I just buy an ounce to test it out.

So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

Vervain as in blue vervain (verbena somethingorotherlatin?)

What I know about it is that its leaves make some pretty yummy lemony-tasting tea, it is supposed to be pretty good for your, and that it can give you the shits for a few days if you drink it regularly.  I would have never thought it has psychoactive qualities but by all means, try it (becauase it is yummy and good for you) and if you do find any other uses, please do report back.  I got a ton of it :smile:

What? Surely, you did not take me seriously?!
