Syrian Rue (Peganum harmala) is an ancient entheogen that was used throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean for it’s magical and psychoactive effects. Syrian rue seeds were apotropaic (they protected you from evil), they were believed to be able to banish spirits and break incantations. The seeds were traditionally roasted as an incense or powdered and smoked. Syrian Rue has connections to the sacred haoma beverage of the Persians and the mythical “moly” of Dioscorides.
Syrian Rue is said to have sedative, narcotic and moderately visual effects. It is particularly useful as an oneirogen, to encourage visionary dreams.
The seeds have been utilized for their anti-depressant effects and to stimulate the imagination, facilitating dream-like states.
Peganum harmala contains harmel alkaloids, harmine and harmaline, which are responsible for the plant’s effects. They acts as MAOI's which inhibit the secretion of MAO responsible for metabolizing certain neurotransmitters. Harmel alkaloids are B-carbolines which enhance the efficacy of other substances.
The same concept is used in creating the Ayahuasca brew, which is a combination of Banisteriopsis cappi vine, an MAOI and the leaves of DMT containing Psychotria viridis, without the MAOI the brew wouldn’t work. There are as many different ayahuasca recipes as there are shaman, and other ingredients are often included, but the vine is always present.
Because of the MAOI effects syrian rue should NOT be taken if you are on MAOI’s already, are taking other medication or in combination with other herbs unless you have confirmed there are not interactions.
Syrian Rue can be worked with entheogenically on its own at a micro-dose for the previously mentioned effects.
