La Planta - Mexican mystery
    #4202629 - 05/21/05 08:33 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

sorry, i'm not sure if this is the right place to post or what, but i'm all out of ideas. SO, i went to GOA SOUNDS 3 in Mexico city last may..great party, met soem great people, and tried a very interesting ethnobotanical.

some of my newfound friends there bought a handful of twigs called ''planta'' from some mexican kid. they looked like totally boring brown twigs but when chewed, they released a near orgasmic tingling into your mouth, and you immediatly wanted more noce you finished the current twig.

ive looked everywhere, including asking around en espanol, and nobody has been able to help me.... does anyone have any idea what this plant might be, or where i can get it? thanks!

Sounds like it. Was it stimulant?

Kava roots stems can look very much like twigs. Regarding the possibility of it being Khat, were they fresh or dried?

I believe the leaves are commonly used with khat not twigs.

Kava is a posibility...deffinately tingles(although not orgasmicaly) when chewed on.

I had a similar experience in Mexico. The "twigs" in my case were actually dried roots, but they looked like small, gray-brown sticks. The Mexicans called it Raiz Azteca, and the medicinal herb vendors sold it. I thought it was echinacea roots or something. Chewing them caused a tingling, numbing sensation in my mouth, but I don't think it did much else.

Were you on drugs when you chewed the stuff?

It would be very possible that a regular old numbing would become near orgasmic under the influence of a nifty dose of LSD or others.

I still remember the day where i took liquid for the first time and a wisp of nag champa smoke (which i didn't know well at the time) crossed my nose. It was outright orgasmic. My trip intensified 10X, my vision went white and the scent instantaneously hit every little cell of my body making it vibrate in pure euphoria.
At first I was convinced it was some sort of gaseous lsd came from above to bless us all. It somehow felt to my senses exactly what acid feels to my mind. Moments later i realized it was just incense hehe :crazy::tongue:

Khat comes in many different forms and many times they will come in fresh wrapped bundles of the stems that are baring the leaves, thats why i didn't rule out that possibility. Although leaves are the primary part used, "twigs" are a possibility.

Esin, that is a very good point and an interesting issue to bring up. ive had similiar experiences myself.

Hrm, well, it was kinda a stimulant, not a strong one. I don't think it could be kava, didnt' look like in the pics. It sounds like it could be Raiz Azteca though, got any links to it? i'm gonna try to buy some ASAP!

oh, i don't THINK i was on drugs at the time, but some Drechas were eaten sometime during the weekend.

Thanks for the responses everyone, sorry for my long reply, i was moving back to the US from Tokyo :-)
