Maka Calea zacatechichi
Calea zacatechichi, commonly known as "dream herb," is a plant native to Mexico and Central America. It has a history of traditional use by indigenous peoples for its purported ability to enhance dream vividness and recall. Some individuals use it to promote lucid dreaming, which is the experience of being aware that one is dreaming while still in the dream state. While Calea zacatechichi is not considered a traditional psychedelic, it is sometimes classified as oneirogenic, meaning it is believed to influence dream states.
