Calamus...
    #4694947 - 09/22/05 01:55 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Does anyone have personal experience with calamus root or can anyone point me to useful site about the ceremonial use of calamus root?

Here's a link that may help. I did Calamus years ago and found it to be a foul tasting waste of time.

The picture on the erowid link for calamus is definitely NOT acorus calamus. Erowid's description of the cylindrical flower heads is correct, but the flowers in that photo are not cylindrical. The calamus flower head should look like a little brownish penis.

This is more like it, if I can post the photo, and here's the link:

thats stuff grows partly in the water, the roots suck in everything in the water it grows in, no wonder the stuff taste like shit, i'd say clean water, a clean lake/pond or whatever they grow in would take a good deal of the bad taste away,,,grow it yourself, keep the water clean, thats my advice, but what do i know? :grin:

Does Rue increase the effect? I've always wanted to get off on Calamus to experience Whitman's "effletus surging and surging" but have never felt anything.
