Baybean (Canavalia Maritima or Canavalia rosea) is a plant that has very little effect on its own. It may be an ingredient Spice. It is extremely good for mixing with other herbs, notably spice alternatives like fusion most of which are assumed to contain JWH-018. It also seemingly quadruples the effects of salvia and Diviner's Three (a blend whose base is salvia). All these reports must be taken with a grain of salt, because for a long time an interaction between Baybean and another herb was thought to be the reason for Spice's intense cannabis-like high, not the unreported cannabinoid agonist it contained.
Historically it has been used for many years, but not for intoxication. An infusion can be made with the crushed roots and rubbed over the skin for rheumatism, general pain, skin disorders, and colds. The beans produced by the bay bean are edible if the outer skin is removed from them and they are softened by boiling, although it is unknown and unlikely that eating them will have psychoactive effects.
One user claims the resin from inside the flower is very psychoactive. Inside the flower there is resin. The flower traps insects inside where they come into contact with a goo which inebriates the critter while coating it with pollen. The fly sobers up and leaves in the morning to pollenate other plants. This is particularly interesting because most baybean products seem to be extracts from the seeds.
It is well known to be an extremely strong potentiator of many herbs. However, it's use and the specifics of these interactions are not well documented.
- JWH-018 and spice alternatives are greatly potentiated.
- Kanna seems to mix well with baybean, although reports are uncommon.
- Salvia and blends like Diviner's Three and Total Impact which contain Salvia Divornum have been reportedly quadrupled in effect.
- Pedicularis has been sold in blends with baybean. It is unknown if this is an effective combination.
