    I have a few herbs I was wondering if any of you had any experience with, or tips on preparation and such. Thanks.
    Skullcap, galanga, calamus, Calea zacatechichi (dream herb), sinicuichi.

    Skullcap is a fun smoke.
    Calamus really needs to be fresh, and can be potent.
    The dream herb should make you a little energized.
    Sinicuichi, depending on where you got it, could make you trip. Don't get your hopes up though.

    I have yet to smoke it but I know people that have by joint and pipe, I'm sure a water bong would work. It's just a cheap sedative. I've used it as a tea now, enjoyable.
     
  6. ive never smoked scullcap straight out but i had it in a blend and scullcap was the main ingredient, it makes you very physically relaxed and occasionally puts a stupid smile on your face

    I like to think of it mostly as something that is simply fun to smoke. It does have effects, but they are mild at best. A tea would probably be best if you wanted to really feel it.

    There are a couple different types of skullcap, dwarf scullcap is VERY potent. Normal skullcap is the one I was refering to above. The is another one, who's name I forget, supposedly about equivalent to smoking marijuana leaf... not quite as potent as dwarf scullcap. It begins with a ba something. like Sculletaria bailablablaba

    skullcap i believe is more a nerve tonic then anything its just very relaxing but not sedative really calming & enjuyable withut the muscle & reaction time depletion of normal sedatives

    i used to brew up alot of experimental brews & some did make u trip
