Synaptolepis Kirkii roots is a sacred plant whose roots have traditionally been used by South African tribes such as the Zulu and Xhosa for supernatural mental abilities, divination and ancestral contact. Known indigenously as Uuma-Omholpe, Kirkii is similar to another South African ethnobotanical root, silene capensis, since both roots (ubulawu) are used as a lucid dreaming aids. Synaptolepis Kirikii therefore joins silene capensis and calea zacatechichi, a plant native to the Oaxacan mountains of Mexico, in the class of substances known as oneirogens. All of these are available from World Seed Supply.
These lucid dreaming substance are typically characterized by assisting with deep sleep, enhanced dream activity, increased dream recall and ultimately lucid dreaming. They are tools that can have varying effects depending on the individual and which usually are most effective as part of a regular regimen. The ultimate goal is to be able to recognize a dream in progress and control its direction. Mastery of this is a true super power since one could conceivably do anything at this point, including have the ability to fly.
The compound, kirkinine, has been isolated from Kirkii root, and studies indicate it has “potent” neurotropic activity with a potential for neuroprotective capacities. The botanical name even seems to hint at the word “synapse”. An increase in brain function could explain some of the herb’s nighttime “magical powers” and give merit to the traditional claims of supernatural mental abilities. But it also gives hope for more modern use of the herb as something to help offset some the wear and tear from old age and even work as a study aid or brain boost where it might be helpful. So it is more than your average dreaming herb in terms of being a tonic herb. Best of all, it seems the herb can be active in amounts as low as 300mg for some people, and it is quite palatable compared to the very bitter calea zacatechichi. The root is usually made as a tea taken 2-3 times per day or sometimes just before bed.
Synaptolepis kirkii is by far the rarest of the three dream herbs that most people know about. Most people, if they know of any, know of calea zacatechichi. Some of those people also know about silene capensis. But Kirkii is still a hidden treasure for most, and it is quite difficult to find. We have been working for many years to bring to market the hidden herbal treasures from around the world. World Seed Supply is proud to be able to offer South African-grown Synaptolepis kirkii.
