Duboisia hopwoodii - Pituri Bush
    #3565623 - 12/31/04 03:56 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I was reading about this bush in plant of the gods just now and I find this bush well intresting somehow. Well damnit, its been used over 40000 years by native australians. Only that fact is facinating enough for me to do some more research

Im just wondering

* Have anyone tried it?
* Did anyone benefit from the experience?
* Have anyone grown it? Growth parameters?
* Sources on the internet to obtain either samples, seeds or more information.

These kind of things... There hasent been a single tread about this bush on this forum so this is more like an tell me what you know about it thread, hope to see some inputs.

It's a little hard to find even in australia from what I hear. It is supposed to have a lot of nicotine in it.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)

I never tried it, nor was i ever interested in trying it. I'd like to own one however, but I don't.

I'm pretty sure Shaman Australis Botanicals used to have seed packets but I couldn't find it when I looked just now.

In any case you might want to post on the forums. It is an Australian community so you are going to have more luck there than here.


And btw, was that Plants of the Gods or "Food" because I have just finished reading Food for the second time : tongue :

Give me an ounce of civet, good apothecary, to sweeten my imagination!

I actually tried a little chew of it with lime in Australia at Ethnobotanica 3 and found it quite strong in the nicotine-like effect (but slightly different), but I like the effects of Nicotiana and smoke unfiltered and non-additive tobacco. I dislike the effects of commercial tobacco. Shaman-Australis.com seems to have the best info on Duboisia.
