White Lotus Flowers
The White Lotus flower is closely related to Nymphaea caerulea, or the "Blue Lotus", and has similar properties and characteristics. Both are considered "entheogens" by some people because they can and have been used in a religious or spiritual context. Nymphaea ampla, or "white lotus", contains apomorphine and nuciferine, two powerful believed psychoactive phytochemicals.
The dried buds and flowers of N. ampla may be smoked alone or in smoking blends. One to two buds is said to be an effective psychoactive dosage. The fresh rhizome may be eaten raw or cooked. Eating an entire rhizome has been documented to produce a mild sense of euphoria.
