HISTORY

For over two thousandyears, calamus hasbeenused by the
MososorcerersofYunnan,China,andAyurvedicmedicalprac-
titioners as aremedyfor bronchitis, asthma, and fevers. InChina,
calamus isingestedto relieve constipationand swelling.Walt
Whitmanwrote forty-five balladsunderthe title "Calamus"in
his Leavesof Grass:

(For I must change thestrain-theseare
not to be pensive leaves,but

leavesofjoy,)
Rootsand leaves unlike anybut themselves,...

"Calamus13"

CHEMISTRY

The essential oilofcalamus contains thepsychoactivesubstances
asarone and B-asarone.Theseare thenonamineprecursorsto
TMA-2, a phenethylaminehaving ten times the potencyof
mescaline.

1, 2, 4-TRlMETHORY-5-PROPENYLBENZENE(ASARONE)

Hallucinogens 59

Anotherpossiblesourceof asarone is thewild carrotof central
Asia (Caucasuscarota). Asarone isconvertedto TMA-2 in the
body by aminizationthat occursshortly after ingestion.

PRIMARY EFFECTS

Stimulantwhenadried root 2 incheslong andthe thicknessof
a pencil is eaten; ahallucinogenwhenover 10 inchesis eaten.

PREPARATION

Most preferredtechniqueis to eat the rawroot. The root is
much like ginger when dry, both in taste andtexture. The
tonguebecomesnumb after the root is chewedfor four min-
utes. Acommontonic recipeis to boil 1ounceofcalamusroot
in 1 pint of water. Drink daily before meals.The asarone is
more easilyconvertedto TMA-2 on anempty stomach.The
root deteriorateswith age andshould not be used aftertwo
years.The asarone has, by thattime, becomeuseless.

RITUAL USE

Calamuswasoneof the constituentsofan ointmentthat Moses
was commandedto rub on hisbody when approachingthe
tabernacle:

Moreover the Lord spoke toMoses,saying'Take thou
also unto thee the chiefspecies,of flowing myrrh five
hundredshekels,and of sweet cinnamon half so much,
even two hundredfifty, and of sweetcalamus two
hundred andfifty, and ofcassiafive hundred, after the
shekelof thesanctuary,and of olive oil a kin. And thou
shall make it a holy anointing oil, anessencecom-
pounded after the art of the perfumer; itshallbe a holy
anointing oil.' (Exodus30:22-25)

The psychoactiveaspectsof asaronein small quantitiescreate
the effect of a stimulant. In Canadait is customaryfor Cree
overtheageofforty to chewcalamusregularlyin smallamounts
as anantifatiguemedicine.In largeramountsit can beusedas
a mind-alteringsacramentfor the initiation ofa boy into war-
rior status.

NoteofCaution: Someexperimentsindicate that large quantities
of calamusproducetumors in rats.The amountgiven to produce
this effect,however,is astronomicalfor the weight of the rat.No
ill effects havebeenreportedin any of the Creewho use it daily.
In fact, they seem to be ingood health.
