Little scientific research has been done about Calea Zacatechichi. Not much is known about its active compounds. The psychoactive alkaloids present in the plant, haven’t yet been isolated.
For optimal effect, the Dream herb tea should be consumed on a daily basis before going to bed. For 1 cup (250ml) use 1,5-12,5 grams of the Calea Zacatechichi leaves and let it steep for 10-15 minutes. The tea tastes very bitter, so we advice to add some sugar or honey to soften the taste.
The Calea Zacetechichi is known as Mexican Calea, Leaves of the Gods, Dream herb or bitter-grass. The Mexican Indians have considered the Calea as a visionary entheogen (=”generating the divine within”), and therefore Shamans used this tea to receive divine messages from the Gods in their dreams. However, the hallucinogenic alkaloid that produces these vivid dreams has not been found yet. The Mexicans also used this tea as a medicine, since it improves the metabolism and increases appetite.
