Jurema Seeds (Mimosa hostilis) Seeds 1g
Also known as Mimosa tenuiflora and Jurema, the rootbark of this tree has an interesting role in the history and present day manifestations of psychedelic shamanism. It is the only known plant that can be used for an orally ingested brew that, without the aid of another plant, induces visionary experiences similar to Ayahuasca. In Brazilian history it was used in the Vinho de Jurema, a ceremonial preparation and ingestion of this plant. Rumour has it that the tradition was extinct and recently picked up again. Currently there are only 7 tribes left that work with this plant. For medicinal uses, a tea or decoction is made. It treats skin problems, like burns, ulcers and injures, among others. It has antimicrobial, antifungal, analgesic, regenerative, cicatrizing, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. It is currently used for dying leather.
How to Plant: Jurema grows in climates of seasonal rains where the humidity levels change substantially during the year. Coatscarification helps the germination process. Light has no effect in germination. The seeds can be soaked in warm water before being planted, or placed between paper towels in a warm environment. The best temperature for it to sprout is 20 to 25C. Under optimal conditions, germination takes between 1 and 4 days. As soon the radicle (the germinal root) is visibly out, it can be planted a few millimeters into well draining soil.
