Blue Lotus 50:1 Extract
Blue lotus (nymphaea caerulea) is not a true lotus flower; it’s actually a beautiful water lily that has been favored for its medicinal properties since ancient times.
Known by several names, including blue Egyptian lotus, Egyptian water lily and blue water lily, the blue lotus is a discomfort reliever, aphrodisiac and it even has some psychoactive properties.
The medicinal properties of the blue lotus were discovered thousands of years ago and it was a favorite amongst the ancient Egyptians and the ancient Mayan civilization. The blue lotus is even prominently featured in ancient Egyptian mythology and artwork. Today, the blue lotus still grows along the Nile River and in some areas of Asia (although in ancient times, the flower was far more widespread, extending to the Americas where it was utilized by the Mayans.)
Notably, some countries have banned blue lotus, including the UK, Russia, Poland and Latvia. But it remains legal in the United States.
The blue lotus is found in several different forms, with the most potent being concentrated extract, such as this product. With extracts, the number indicates how many units are concentrated down into a single unit. So, for instance, a 50x blue lotus extract would indicate that 50 ounces have been concentrated down into one ounce. Due to the nature of blue lotus, the 50x extract is not necessarily 50 times more potent (although the differential is quite significant when compared to the non-extract powder.)
The US FDA has not approved this herb to be sold for internal use. Sold for external use only.

History & Traditional Use
Blue lotus extract’s effects are many and varied. The active chemicals in blue lotus include nuciferine and apomorphine, which is widely used by the pharmaceutical industry to treat erectile dysfunction and even Parkinson’s disease. The apomorphine that’s contained within nymphaea caerulea has also been used as an “off-label” remedy for opioid addiction withdrawal symptoms too.
Blue lotus is an all-natural discomfort reliever, which is effective for many different types of discomfort. Users also favor blue lotus for its abilities to bring about a mild euphoria and a unique, dreamy mental state. Once asleep, vivid dreams are often reported. This could be why ancient cultures used blue lotus to promote spiritual evolution and enlightenment.
Dosage : Blue lotus 50x extract is commonly enjoyed as a tea or with wine. It blends well with other teas.
For blue lotus 50x extract, the dosage can range from a _ a teaspoon to 1 teaspoon or more. The extract powder can be dissolved in the hot (but not boiling) water or dissolved in wine. In the case of tea, there is no need to steep the tea for any specific period of time because unlike the raw flowers (available in whole and powdered form), you don’t need to wait to draw out the alkaloids and other active constituents. This is done when the extract is created, so you can simply dissolve and enjoy. In fact, heat can damage free-base alkaloids such as those contained within blue lotus. So it’s best to avoid temperatures over 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
The time from dosage to the onset of effects is around 20 minutes. The effects usually last around two hours.
One of the most popular preparations is blue lotus tincture. It’s possible to blend blue lotus extract with alcohol, although it should be noted that the alcohol can slightly enhance some of its relaxation effects.
It’s also possible to smoke the blue lotus flower extract powder, creating effects that are similar to marijuana, but without the paranoia or anxiety that is common when smoking cannabis. The effects tend to be far more mild when smoked and you must use caution when smoking powdered extract.
When smoking 50x blue lotus extract, users have reported effects at a threshold of 100 mg (100 mg is one-tenth of a gram).
Nymphaea caerulea 50x extract powder can also be placed into capsules for easier dosing. If you opt for blue lotus capsules, it’s important to drink at least one cup of a warm drink to help dissolve the capsules so you feel the effects faster.
When trying blue lotus, it’s important to start with a conservative dosage. Wait at least 20 minutes after taking the first dosage and if you prefer stronger effects, you may consider an additional dosage. Beware that in large quantities, blue lotus can cause nausea and vomiting.
