Clint, that's so funny that you said you "lick it", bc the other day I had a ton of sugar droplets on my phal spike and decided to freak out my fiance. I took the plant over to him and showed him the droplets and I said, "I don't know what these are!! Its freaking me out!! Should I taste it??" He got all nervous and grossed out, and then I licked it, and he started yelping! It was so funny!! I told him afterwards that it was just the sugars that the plant produces, and he wouldn't talk to me for 2 hours!! :-)
Oncidium Cebolleta is known as a peyote replacement among the Tarahumara. Found to contain phenanthrene derivatives of unknown pharmacology. Further research needs to be done, but we have not encountered anything as of yet.
The Tarahumara inhabit the rugged and remote area of mountains and canyons in Mexico known as the Barrancas del Cobre or Copper Canyon. Little is known about their history or their religion, though they follow the Rarámuri philosophy. In the Rarámuri philosophy, respect for others is of prime importance. They give greater value to persons than to objects, and business matters take second place to respect for human beings.
We hope to find more about these people and their sacred use of entheogens in the near-future. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
