Red Lotus (Nymphaea rubra)
Commonly used part: Flowers
Reported effects: Stimulating, a sense of well-being, relaxing and euphoria.
Also known as the Red Water Lily. The lotus plant has been used for centuries by the Mayans and Egyptians, as well as the peoples of East and Southeast Asia and is used in both cuisines and as traditional medicine. The lotus’ long history has earned it the title of India’s national flower and a symbol of purity in Buddhist and Hindu traditions.
The Red Lotus contains bioflavonoids that act on the GABA receptors, and drinking or smoking it induces relaxation. The GABA chemical receptor system inhibits and calms the nervous system.
It is a much safer and more natural alternative to the highly addictive benzodiazepine class of drugs, which produce the same effects by acting on the GABA receptors.
