Khat
    #616676 - 04/23/02 08:40 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I know the plant is illegal in the US (thanks Uncle Sam) but are the seeds illegal? Can you legally buy/sell/trade the seeds?

Thanks

Khat is schedule 1,specifically listed by species name not just the active components making ALL parts of the plant also schedule 1 in the US.This includes seeds and is the same reason marijuana seeds are illegal even though they contain 0% THC.

The above is just like,my opinion man

Catha edulis ( Khat, Qat )

Khat is probably one of the world's oldest stimulants, definitively older
than Coffee. The plant was first described botanically by the Swede
Pehr Forsskal (1732-1763) living in Yemen. Chemical research revealed
the active principle of Catha edulis (Cathinone) only during the 80's.

The species is probably native to the region around lake Tana (Ethiopia)
but can grow in a wide range of climates. Since seeds are relatively
rare, the plant is usually propagated thru cuttings. The Khat bush can
grow up to 20m high but is generally trimmed to a height of 5-7m since
this was shown to increase production of the desirable young growth.

Catha edulis leaves are effective only when very fresh. Apparently, their
activity seems to be lost after as little as 48h from picking. Traditional
use of Catha edulis in the African continent is very similar to the South
American use of Coca. Catha edulis was recently found to possess very
interesting cholesterol-lowering and anti-diabetic properties.

A Friend of mine describes this experience as being like a strong cup of coffee only euphoric. Try www.shaman-Australis.com

So I have two conflicting answers as to the legality of Khat seeds in the US. Basement Shaman sells them in the US from the US this leads me to think the seeds are legal. But a couple posts higher up this thread I see that Khat and its seed are illegal. Can anyone point me to a source with a definitive answer?
