Sinicuichi (Heimia salicifolia) es una planta proveniente de Mexico, usado por los Aztecas durante los rituales de trance. Su origen es en Sudamérica, de Mexico hasta Argentina. Algunos dicen que Sinicuichi es un 'alucinógeno auditivo': los sonidos son déformados y parecen venir de lejos.
Hoy en día los chamanes mexicanos usan el Sinicuichi todavía para entrar en contacto con 'el divino'. Los indígenos allí consideran la planta como sacrada y atribuyen poderes supernaturales. Piensan que la planta puede resolver diferentes problemas y lo usan para revivir las experiencias pasadas.
Sinicuichi da un sentimiento eufórico, relajado y una soñolencia agradable.
Euforia, relajamiento completo, alucinaciones auditivos y mejoración de la memoria.
10 gramos son suficiente para hacer una infusión. Pon la hierba en 3 vasos de agua y hiérvalo durante algun tiempo o ponlo en el sol durante un día. Después de enfriarlo, la bebida está lista.
El uso prolongado puede dañar la memoria.
interesting plant, strange effects, difficult to describe, at 10 grams boiled a numb feeling, somehow "the mind starts to go backwards" and really some auditory distortions. Combinated this with DMT and effects were wild BUT an overdose starts with 25 grams boiled and the next day after deep sleep crazy muscle aches in the legs, in the arms, in the stomach with every breath I took but mind was clear, but these aches, no reaction to analgesics, seems to evoke really severe pain effects by affecting the biochemistry of the nerves...psychedelic activity: medium I would say, hallucinogenic: super as supplement, alone: mild or none (visual, tactile etc.), acustical yes, mind: subtle and strange.
The plant can be seen stilized way on the surface of Xochipilli-statues ( the flowers and stilized leaves ).
I took 10gr some hours ago. I made the mistake of eating the leaves because I couldn't feel any effect. Now my body really hurts, my throat is swollen, have nausea, stomacache and every muscle in my body hurts like if I've done a lot of excersise, even my tongue. I feel the inside of my body imflamated. I found some other cases of people who only drank 10gr in a the tea and experienced the same for 2 days!!! It's horrible and I didn't even had any auditory allucinations. Please be careful when taking it and take it only on days you don't have to work next day.
I extracted about an ounce of sinicuichi in boiling water (boiled it for an hour or so, strained, boiled off the water; can't remember well since it was a while ago). It formed little resiny clumps. I left it for a while and eventually decided to smoke some, thinking it was Calea zacatechichi (the label had come off and I keep them together). I wanted to dream well... Anyway, I realized my error after about 4-5 hits. I suppose the psychoactives in sinicuichi work much better at high concentrations, since I'd smoked the plain leaf before. The resin, unlike the plain leaf, smelled sort of similar to cannabis, but not too much.
Anyway, after about 10 minutes (felt like a long onset for inhalation, but that's fine) I started feeling high; the plateau (after about 30-40 minutes) felt similar to cannabis in terms of mood and slight euphoria and such. Very minor auditory hallucinations, primarily thinking I'm hearing (friendly) voices or a TV in the other room. However, the body effects were much different; I felt relatively normal physically, at least from the neck down. It actually made me concentrate somewhat more, though only about particular things (unlike the sort of euphoric apathy that I get from cannabis). I can't remember how long it lasted, but it was comparable to cannabis, maybe slightly shorter though.
Had no side-effects at all, except for increased appetite (though the food wasn't much tastier than normal like I always get with cannabis).
I tried it again a couple days later; this time I smoked another chunk of resin (not very much, but the same as the first time) and nothing much happened. I ate one of the chunks, and after 90 min. or so nothing happened. It is possible that I had some sort of tolerance, or maybe I did something wrong the second time. Unlike the first time, the second time I had minor muscle aches (and minor chest tightness, though that is apparently normal, and I'm young so it wasn't exacerbating an existing problem) the day after. Could have been the fact that I ate some the second time, so it stayed in my system longer.
Overall, reminiscent of cannabis, but quite unique. I'll do it again. Hopefully the inconsistency was due to tolerance and not due to something I did the first time that I'll never remember how to do right again... :)
