DOSE:
  oral Coleus (plant material)

BODY WEIGHT: 13 kg


The alcaloids in Coleus appear to have a delicate nature. I have dried and smoked the leaves - nothing, I have boiled and ate it like greens - nothing. Coleus doesn't like heat.

The only way to get anything out of coleus is to chew the bitter leaves. It works, and works well. a mild effect can be had from just a few leaves, but I have to eat/chew about 15 - 20 for a hefty trip, and they are really bitter. It does tend to make me throw up, and the puke is usually a deep red. I Don't worry about it, though, it is worth it.
