- As noted at end of my intro wrt Calea zacatechichi, unless the plant is stressed, it will not be producing as much active alkaloids. This is true for most of the common ebible herbs, they should not be watered very often in order to get more flavorful oils to use in cooking.
The problem is that if you want as much CZ leaf material to sell to public, then you'll want the plant to be as bushy as possible so you can harvest and sell more CZ leaf.
Unfortunately, the product will probably have much less active components which will be used to enhance dreaming. IOW it won't taste as bitter as a more stressed-out CZ plant. So again, caveat emptor when buying in bulk online. Better to grow your own herb in a pot, which allows more controls over environmental variables.
I have not made CZ tinctures yet, but I will be testing CZ extracts with a calibrated pH meter and pH test strips to get a general idea of potency. I assume an extremely bitter CZ extract means higher pH due to increased alkaloidal content.0 0 0 0

- Now that I'm often into close proximity of my CZ (Calea zacatechichi) plants on a regular basis, I am beginning to think this fact alone, being near the plants, that is enough to assist in dreaming.
So it's not always necessary to brew it into a tea or smoke it for the oneirogenic effects.
The downside to this is that CZ is very much an outdoor plant, it needs to develop a healthy root system and have lots of sun. So I would think it's not the kind of plant you can keep longterm indoors in a pot. with artificial sunlight.0 0 0 0
