Space Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera mutated)
Commonly used parts: Flowers
Reported effects are: Stimulating, relaxing, euphoria, changing perception of colors and shapes.
The mutated Nelumbo nucifera contains a higher amount of active compounds than the original one.
The mutated Nelumbo nucifera was generated from outer space radiation using a Chinese satellite in 1994. The seeds were subjected to radiation for 14 days and 19 hours by the regainable satellite of scientific research in China. Outer space induced mutation is a natural and safe way to breed new crop varieties, because it does not involve artificial genetic modification. After numerous space missions, the mutated Nelumbo nucifera exhibited much larger flowers, up to 40 centimeters in diameter, and much higher concentrations of alkaloids, amino acids, vitamins B1, B2, B6, C, E, and phospholipids. The Nelumbo nucifera has long been used in traditional Japanese, Chinese and Indian herbal medicine. It was recorded in the Chinese Pharmacopoeia of traditional Chinese medicine for its’ numerous health-promoting properties. The embryo of the lotus seed has multiple medicinal effects, including: anti-aging properties, invigoration of the spleen, anti-diarrhea, kidney tonic, heart tonic and astringent properties. Since their discovery in 1994, the seeds of the mutated Nelumbo nucifera, no. 36, have readily been used in Fujian Province, China.
We started producing Extract capsules because of the growing demand of stronger herbal products. Of a plain plant powder a mild dose is 3-5 grams which translates to 7 to 14 capsules (400 mg per capsule). Extract capsules contain 75% extract. Extract capsules have 500mg of extract/flower blend which makes it 375mg of extract and 125mg of Blue Lotus flower powder as a binder.
All extracts that we use for making extract capsules are sticky and some are even runny when they are completely dehydrated. That’s why we blend 75% resin extract with 25% Blue Lotus flower powder to make it possible to pulverise the extract and fill it into capsules.
Our extract capsules can be consumed in different ways.Orally: 1-2 extract caps is a mild dose. 3-4 extract caps is a medium dose 5-6 extract caps is a strong dose. When consumed orally it works much better to open the capsule and put the content under your tongue (sublingual). A lot of water should be consumed along with taking extract capsules. Dehydration and a headache can appear otherwise. The extract capsules can be opened and the content can be smoked! You can also dissolve the content in warm water, wine or vodka. If you like you can mix the content of the capsules with food like salad or a smoothie. But please note that the sublingual consumption of the powder inside the capsule works most effective!
