Some charlatan keeps editting the Anadenanthera articles to indicate that bufotenine reacts with calcium hydroxide to form "calcium bufotenate". This is a complete falsehood. The person responsible has also posted about the topic on messageboards, and created multiple fake accounts to "substantiate" his information. If you see this info re-posted, please delete it.

There is some indication that bufotenine undergoes a chemical change in the presence of calcium hydroxide, but it is known definitively that calcium bufotenate is too unstable a compound to be isolated. After treating pure freebase bufotenine with calcium hydroxide, all of the calcium hydroxide can be recovered; no calcium salt of bufotenin has been isolated. The bufotenine that was treated this way [i]does[/i] seem to have an activity profile distinct from bufotenin.

But it is not calcium bufotenate ("Ca-O-DMT"). That's someone's persistent crusade of misinformation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.170.56.109 (talk) 19:40, 18 July 2008 (UTC)





Where to from here?[edit]

Thanks everyone for helping make this article so encyclopedic. Anyone have any ideas what else we can do to improve this article? —oac old american century talk @ 05:49, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

the articles contain this line at the end of Entheogenic uses. A nearly identical, more potent snuff called yopo. but the page on yopo says. A nearly identical, more potent snuff called vilca. so which one is more potent?


Anadenanthera colubrina is normally about twice as potent. I believe the Anadenanthera colubrina Entheogenic Uses article just was copied and pasted from the original Anadenanthera peregrina article and this line was not fixed for the Anadenanthera colubrina article.

The entheogenic uses of both Anadenanthera colubrina and Anadenanthera peregrina are nearly identical. I think rather than having redundant information we should have one reference the other whenever there is purely identical information. What do you think? Ron Delipski 00:51, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

We need to add some pictures of the beans and of the preparation of the snuff by shamans as well as pictures of it in use.Ron Delipski 00:51, 4 August 2007 (UTC)

Map[edit]

The article says that it's found in Ecuador, but in the map Ecuador isn't marked. Fix one or the other. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.218.30.165 (talk) 03:15, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
