Pink Lotus Flowers
Pink lotus is well known for the euphoric effects it produces in people who smoke its dried petals and stamens, or who brew those constituents into a tea and drink it. As the author Tao Jones mentions in his article “The Land of the Lotus Smokers,” the effects of the pink lotus are predominately cerebral, producing feelings of pleasure that permeate the body.
In addition to generating euphoria, smoking pink lotus and drinking pink lotus concoctions can help calm the mind and reduce stress and anxiety. According to the psychoactive substances resource website The Vaults of Erowid, pink lotus is a mild sedative, which means it has a soothing, tranquilizing effect.
