Do you have any information about a plant called something like 'damanthus'?
Q: I have recently saw some seeds for ?damanthus?, or that is what they called it, i was wondering if you had information on what exactly this plant is. And if you do, what are its effects how is it used?

Thanks for all your time

A: That sounds most like Desmanthus illinoensis. D. illinoensis is a DMT containing plant. Because DMT is not orally active, it is not possible to eat this plant for effects. Rather the DMT would be extracted from the plant and then most commonly heated in a pipe with the vapors inhaled. Read up on DMT and 5-MeO-DMT for a description of the effects.
