Hawaiian Baby Woodrose is a curious botanical. Like many other psychoactive botannicals it belongs to the Convolvulaceae family and contains certain alkaloid compounds that contribute to psychoactivity, and like many of these botannicals it is classically identified by its trumpet shaped flowers. However, in this case, it is the seeds that stimulate hallucination.
Typical experiences last about 5-8 hours for a large does, and take about an hour to set-in. Its effects are reported as generally pleasant, and not unlike other psychedelics such as LSD or psilocybin. However, it is also is reported to cause nausea for many individuals, though the nausea subsides in time.

The psychoactive chemical in HBW seeds are ergine alkaloids also called d-lysergic acid amide or LSA. LSA was a precursor to LSD and causes very similar psychedelic experiences. HOWEVER, because of this it in its isolated form is a DEA schedule III drug. This means that to have a tincture or isolated form of Hawaiian Baby Woodrose Seed IS illegal, though the plants and seeds themselves are sold legally.
When sold in the United States, several companies that distribute the seeds add non-toxic, but highly unpleasant, coatings to the seeds that cause them to incite intense nausea if ingested. This is to combat the use of the seeds as a drug. Bear that in mind.
