Transforms Dreams
Silene capensis
by Claire
Citation:   Claire. "Transforms Dreams: An Experience with Silene capensis (exp88032)". Mar 15, 2016.

0.5 tsp oral Silene capensis (ground / crushed)


I am deeply involved with dreams, and have tried various supplements to assist with lucid dreaming, as well as other mind-altering drugs at various times in my life. More recently I have experimented with Silene capensis, having tried Calea, Galantamine, Salvia divinorum, Mucuna pruriens, and nothing has had the effect this has. I have never felt more 'in' the dream than I have with this.

I take it in the morning on an empty stomach, I bought a grinder as I can only currently buy it in root form, though chewing a piece about an inch long in the morning and on an empty stomach has a good effect too. It apparently takes some time for the alkaloids to work their way through your system. There are NO unpleasant side effects, no bad taste and it doesn't disrupt my sleep in any way. I awaken from dreams as if I had literally just been there, every detail is precise, dreams are 100% clear and lucidity chances are greatly increased. Recall is entirely effortless.
dreams are 100% clear and lucidity chances are greatly increased. Recall is entirely effortless.

It has utterly transformed my nocturnal life. Any drawbacks? None. The effects definitely span a few days, though I have been topping up due to my inquisitive nature so can't say exactly how long they last. I believe in some people it's a fair while. Totally legal, natural and pleasant. Amazing.

I mix a half teaspoon, definitely no more needed, in warm/boiling water, just half a cup, and drink in the morning. I don't need to sweeten it. Have a normal day, have an amazing night.
