Entada rheedii – Hierba del Sueño Africana

Aunque las propiedades medicinales curativas de Entada rheedii, comúnmente conocida como la Hierba del Sueño Africana o Snuff Box Sea Bean, ha sido conocida y utilizada por las tribus aborígenes durante siglos, más notablemente, la Hierba del Sueño Africana es consumida por los hombres de medicina y altos sacerdotes de Sudáfrica para comunicarse con mundo de los espíritus al inducir sueños lúcidos y vívidos.

PREPARACIÓN TRADICIONAL: Dependiendo de sus fines, las preparaciones tradicionales de la Sea Bean varían ampliamente. Cuando se consume para inducir sueños lúcidos y la comunicación con el mundo de los espíritus, la carne interna de la semilla se consumía tanto directamente, como troceando la carne, secándola y mezclándola con otras hierbas como el tabaco, para fumarla justo antes de ir a la cama.

EFECTOS TRADICIONALES: Hay muchos informes no científicos e historias anecdóticas sobre los efectos de la Hierba del Sueño Africana, los cuales encajan en dos categorías básicas. La primera categoría de informes indican que la semilla aumenta la habilidad propia para dormir y mantenerse dormido, así como produce sueños duraderos, más vívidos y memorables; pero no necesariamente sueños lúcidos. La segunda categoría de informes describen los efectos de la semilla como una entrada en el mundo de los sueños, la semilla proporciona un aumento de la conciencia durante la fase REM del sueño, haciendo más fácil para quien duerme el darse cuenta de estar soñando y así dándole un asidero para alcanzar la lucidez. De cualquier modo, La Hierba del Sueño Africana ha alcanzado una bien merecida reputación por ser ¡la hierba del sueño por excelencia!

I never had any allergic reaction before, with any natural psychedelic substances or any herb in general. Unfortunately I had it with this seed.
The seed was really hard to crack, inside, the white meat is solid, tough, like porcelain. I grind it to a fine powder. I tried to eat it dry but the taste was really bitter and a bit sour - I was OK with that, most substances don't taste specially nice, then I mixed it with a bit it water and that way a could take it faster. I took about half the seed (the seed is huge). The intake leaves you with a numbness in the tongue, this was also no surprise, I read others reported the same. After about 15 minutes I had sudden allergic reaction, the mucosae of my nose, sinuses and palatal swollen and the upper airways closed, a bit like a very severe flu. Weird enough, it was very local, it was in my nose, palatal, eyes that felt like burning, my eyelids got swollen as well. At that point I was worried so I tried to self induce vomiting, but I guess it was too late, all was absorbed, as hard as I tried I couldn't vomit anything.
Since I didn't have other signs of systemic allergy like rash or wheezing, it meant it was just a local allergic reaction, not systemic which is more serious, so I decided to just take some antiallergics I had at home, that helped a bit, but overall I had difficulties to sleep because of that.
So when I finally got to sleep, I had a very very deep sleep, just before falling sleep I had some images in my head dream like, but really weak and after a while I just fell totally asleep. I woke up about 8h later, except for the deep sleep, I didn't have any recall of a dream, neither any lucid dream (I had lucid dreams before, ages ago, so I know how they are supposed to be, but that's another story)..
I read other people's report and they are mixed, some people rave about it, some do not get much except the deep sleeping, I think that was my case. On top of this of course, the strange allergic reaction, good that I didn't eat the entire seed.
I think I was just unlucky, it is a natural product and there's always a tiny change of being allergic and the only way to find out is trying. To people wanting to give a chance to this seed, I recommend first, don't eat all. Instead try just maybe a quarter of the seed, and wait for 20-30 minutes (have an antiallergic at hand just in case, any antihistaminic you get over the counter is enough), if aside the numbness of the tongue no other effects appear, then you can safely go for it. Maybe it works for you, but for me didn't work
