5- Methanol soak - DMT main alkaloid, plus significant amounts of resorcinol, catechol and homocatechol (possibly yuremamine or lignin breakdown products), small amounts of 2mthbc and NMT. Also trace amounts of hordenine and what could be skatole (Jungle Spice Analysis thread)

6- Xylene extract (analysed by LC-MS) - 86% DMT, + 4 other compounds (M+ 130, 144, 205, 350) (Mycotopia)

Ethnobotanical uses:

Drank as Vinho de Jurema in northeast Brazil religious ceremonies. Sometimes mixed with passiflora, sometimes with alcohol, sometimes drank as cold water infusion (sources needed)

Mimosa pudica

Distribution (discoverlife.org):

Chemical profile

Tentative TLC tests, no amounts given
(ref Trout's Notes):
-5-MeO-DMT in low amounts in stem and leaf after the first year (November harvest of 15 month old plants).
-Concentrations were higher in the roots (August harvest). Assays 2 Nov. 1995
-Very young seedlings (whole plant) tested in 1996 showed a very dark suspected 5-MeO-DMT band.
-5-MeO-DMT in branches; 1996 assays.
- DMT did not start to show up in assays until after second year, at which time it was present in leaf and root. (ref trout's Notes)

Other literature analysis:

- Jasmonic acid, L-Mimosine, L-Noradrenaline, Turgorin, 2"-O-alpha-L-Rhamnosyl-6-C-fucosyl-luteolin, Cassiaoccidentalin B, Mimopudine (kanaya.naist.jp)

- "The preliminary Phytochemical screening of Mimosa pudica extract showed the presence ofbioactive components like Terpenoids, Flavonoids, Glycosides, Alkaloids, Quinines, Phenols, Tannins, Saponins and Coumarin" (Gandhiraja et al 2009)

- Phytochemical analysis of M. pudica roots shows that the plant contains ascorbic acid, crocetin, D-glucoronic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, palmitic and stearic acids, mimosine, D-xylose and β-sitosterols. (Mahanta & Mukherjee 2001)

Pharmacology and action

The plant exhibited antimicrobial activity against some tested microorganisms (Gandhiraja et al 2009)

Decoction of leaves protected mice against seizures induced by strychnine and pentylentetrazol (Bum et al 2004)

M. pudica displayed considerable bacteriostatic activity against all six bacterial strains including Bacillus cereus, B. subtilis, Escherichia coli, ampicillin-resistant Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Genest et al 200Cool

In india, the leaves are chewed and the mash is applied over fresh cuts to stop bleeding. The leaves ground with mustard seeds (Brassica juncea) and jaggery, are taken orally 2-3 times a day, for dysentery. (Bhandary et al 1995)

Leaf and stem of Mimosa pudica are used in scorpion sting (Patwari 1992). Roots of M. pudica are popularly used against cobra bite by snake charmers and Bejs (traditional quacks) of north-east India (personal observation). Water extract of roots was shown to reduce toxicity and lethality of cobra venom (Mahanta & Mukherjee 2001)

Mimosa scabrella

Chemical profile

NMT, DMT and N-Methyltetrahydrocarboline (Hegnauer 1994)

DMT in bark (Ott)

Mimosa verrucosa

Chemical profile

- No published analysis with DMT content so far.The publications that mention it have references that do not support the claim with analytical work. Usually the reference is Gonçalves de Lima who simply mentions that this plant is used for vinho da jurema. (ref Trout's Notes)

- Mimosa verrocosa is said by Da Mota 1991 to be used in making jurema, but to have sedative and not hallucinogenic effects. (Trout's Notes)

- Silveira Barbosa 1998 found it in use as a probable DMT containing brew in Brazil but (unlike M. hostilis] it appeared to be orally active as a hallucinogen only when an MAOI was coadministered. Her report of full activity with MAOI supports DMT's presence. (Trout's Notes)

Mimosa somnians

Herbarium specimens:
1, 2

Chemical profile

Whole plant - 0.026% Tryptamine and (0.029% NMT (Gupta et al 1979)

Differentiating pudica from somnians
(university of florida)

Both have pink round flowers and the leaves close/retract when touched.

The main diference is that pudica's bipinnate leafs have four primaries that start from the same point while somnians has more than four primaries that start from different points

This is super helpful endlessness as I have been curios about other mimosa for some time especially mimosa pudica. AKA the shy plant...

I tried some mimosa pudica once along with some harmine fumerate/caapi mix and I felt noticable effects from it....it came in the form of a greenish powder such as what is offered in vitamin stores.. It smelled heavily of DMT sort of like how mimosa hostilis smells...I'm not sure if DMT meo5 has a similar smell?

I was very intrueged by this video of how mimosa pudica reacts to human touch...I thought:
"wow, anything that acts like that must be psychedelic in some way":

video of the "touch me not" plant- mimosa pudica

And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not percieve the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, "brother let me remove the speck from your eye", when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye?-Yeshua ben Yoseph

Mimosa pigra

Local/common names:
Giant Sensitive tree

Chemical content:

There seems to be no mention of alkaloids in literature but neither any sign of specific research looking for alkaloids.

Triterpenoid saponins (Englert et al 1995)

Leaves of Mimosa pigra yielded four acylated flavonols i.e. Kaempferol 3-O-cinnamyl sophoroside, quercetin 3-O-acetylgalactoside, quercetin 3-O-acetylarabinoside and myricetin 3-O-acetylxyloside

Ethnobotanical use
Used in Nigeria for anti-asthmatic properties (Sonibare et al 2008 )

Used by Bwiti in eyedrops:According to Samorini 1996, Raponda-Walker & Sillans (1962:52) mention an eyedrop preparation containing juice of Amorphophallus maculatus N. E. Br. (Araceae), juice of Aframomum sanguineum K. Schum (Zingiberaceae), sap of Euphorbia hermentiana Lem (Euphorbiaceae), scrapings of Mimosa pigra L. bark (Leguminosae), and seeds of Buchholzia macrophylla Pax, (Capparidaceae). All these ingredients are boiled and then allowed to clarify.

Differenciating between pigra and pudica:

It can be distinguished from Mimosa pudica by its large size, large pods (6 to 8 cm long as opposed to 2.5 cm long) and leaves, which have 6 to 16 pairs of pinnae as opposed to 1 to 2 pairs on Mimosa pudica leaves

Other information:

Mimosa pigra is considered an invasive noxious weed.

Just to point out (and to be my anal-retentive self) Mimosa hostilis is a synonym for M. tenuiflora. Doesn't much matter for the forum at large, but is relevant here, imo.

Mimosa tenuiflora (Willd.) Poir.
  • =Acacia hostilis Mart.
  • =Acacia tenuiflora Willd.
  • =Acacia tenuifolia (L.) Willd.
  • =Mimosa cabrera H. Karst.
  • =Mimosa hostilis (Mart.) Benth.
  • =Mimosa limana Rizzini
  • =Mimosa nigra Huber

Thanks snozz! It's good for someone to care for these details, it saves on trouble in the future Smile

Ok continuing:


When trying to identify a possible Mimosa, there are many plants which look similar in specific aspects, appart from the different Mimosas. Most of these plants are from the Mimosoideae subfamily, so it's worth it to keep an eye on different genus of this subfamily when trying to narrow down identifications. It may be different plants of this subfamily have interesting alkaloids, so more research is needed.

A few look alikes can be for example Acacias, Vachellias, Leucaenas, Desmanthus, etc etc

Not to forget, the Guide for Researching Psychoactive Plants thread from Entropymancer is essential.

Mimosa rubicauls

Botanical description

Himalayan Mimosa is a large straggling shrub which is very prickly. It sports long clusters of many pink spherical flower-heads which are 1-1.5 cm across. The flowers fade to white - so, at any time the clusters sport both pink and white flower-heads. Leaves are doubke-compound, 8-15 cm long, with thorny rachis. Leaves have 3-12 pairs of side-stalks, each with 6-15 pairs of tiny oblong leaflets 4-8 mm. Pods are thin, flat, curved, 8-13 cm long, 1 cm wide, breaking into 4-10 rectangular 1-seeded units, leaving the remains of the pod attached to the shoot. (Source)

Common names:
Himalayan mimosa

India, Nepal, Himalayas

Herbarium samples 1

Ethnobotanical use

In Nepal, Palpa District
"Infusion of leaves (about 100 leaves boiled in half a cup
of water) is given twice a day for 15 days to cure piles.
About 2 teaspoonfuls of powdered root is given twice a
day for two days to cure vomiting caused by weakness." (
Mahato & Chaudhary 2005)

In Nepal
"Local Name: Bokshi ghans; Arari

Use: To treat wounds; leaves are pounded and the
paste is applied on wound." (Joshi & Joshi 2000)

Possible synonym with Mimosa pigra

"Two species, M. pudica and M. rubicaulis were present in the Northern Territory in 1891 which indicates that M. rubicaulis was, in fact, a misnomer for M. pigra, which was probably introduced with animals or in seed samples." (Source)

would be great to see more research done on the stem bark for hostilis..
how sustainable is rootbark harvesting can the tree handle it ok?

Agreed also the seed pods, which could prove to be a truly sustainable source.
And they can be abundant...
BTW the mimosa verrucosa pictured has pink flowers, where as the ones I have are yellow-light orange...???
I'd love to get a pink flowering specimen..looks cool!

Voogelbreinder writes
The foilage and twigs..have been both smoked and infused as an obscure psychotropic drug by experimenters in the US, reportedly producing distortions of spatial orientation...
...I can confirm the plant is psychoactive, but these reports seem to be exaggerated..
..though he also notes root-extract overdose could result in coma and possible death..
Trout (1997) found tentative DMT in seeds, and 5meDMT in aerial parts..

..M. pudica is a great plant to grow for interest and to amuse kids (told, obviously, not to eat it!) ..it's the one with the leaves that move when touched..

..on Mimosa verrucosa..
Jurema Ritual in Northern Brazil by Yatra-W.M. da Silveira Barbosa, Maps newsletter 1988:
After interviewing many people, and participating in different Jurema rituals with the Indians, I also realized that the Jurema they drink in their brew is not Mimosa hostilis, but the root bark from Mimosa verucosa. Different tribes will call M. hostilis, the Jurema Negra and M. verucosa, the Jurema Branca, as well as other tribes call M. verucosa, the Jurema Negra. That means that when they say that they drink Jurema Negra, it does not necessarily mean they are drinking M. hostilis, but M. verucosa which is called both: Jurema Branca and Jurema Negra.·

... on Mimosa Pigra : a dreadful invasive weed on the floodplains of Northern Territory , Australia.. Once a specimen in the Darwin botanic gardens , then escaping into the local environment before long . Seed was blown by Cyclone Tracy [ Xmas day , 1974 ] onto the site of the failed Humpty Doo rice growing project , where it has done very well indeed , and now chokes many 1000s of sq km of once pristine flood plains ; and is proving impossible to eradicate despite govt throwing $ millions at the problem ... has been used as fuel to generate electricity ... It forms an enormous wall of dense thicket that is so strong that water buffalo are unable to penetrate the thickets ... . It appears to be creating rich soil areas around the floodplains , by the bases of the thickets trapping and retaining silts in the flood waters , and creating a rich sandy - loam type soil . When standing in water the plant develops a mass of fine roots that trap the water borne silts and detritus that creates the new soil .[ pers obs ]. . Just before the flood plains dry out , the basal bark of M. Pigra - about 1/2 to 1 metre from the ground - swells up like a sponge ; and becomes very soft , thick , and spongy - perhaps to retain as much water as possible before the flood plains dry out until the next wet season . The leaves of M.Pigra are sensitive , similar to those of M. Pudica [ which is also very invasive ] . . Sadly , M . Pigra does not appear to contain alkaloids of entheogenic significance ...

Can´t find a single chemical analysis publication on this mimosa. This has some good info on other aspects of it though:


I guess best to know if it`s of use entheogenically would be to collect a small amount, do a crude methanol/alcohol soak and evap, and test the results with TLC or at least with ehrlich reagent and see if it turns purpleish, which would indicate presence of indole alkaloids. If results are positive, then more tests can be done to see if it`s the wanted indoles or other unwanted alkaloids.
