Morning Glory is a beautiful flowering plant native to Central and South America. Ancient Mesoamerican civilizations used the plant's hallucinogenic properties for shamanic practices. They also used it as an ingredient to create latex and rubber, predating Charles Goodyear's discovery by at least 3,000 years.
The seeds of morning glory contain an ergoline alkaloid tryptamine called D-lysergic acid amide (LSA), which is chemically like LSD and has similar effects.
LSA-containing seeds were used the Maya, Aztec, Mixtec, and Zapotec peoples as spiritual aids. These indigenous peoples used psychedelics for shamanic practices like communicating with the dead, diagnosing illnesses, predicting the future and dealing with traumas and losses. LSA is being researched as a cure for depression, Parkinson’s disease and other illnesses.
