Product Description


The Calamus plant looks like a reed, and it originally grows at the river banks and swamps of North America, Asia and Europe. Throughout history, the roots have been harvested and dried for medicinal purposes. The Acorus Calamus works diuretic and laxative. It is supposed to improve memory and increase sexual potency. It works uplifting and euphoric.

The Penobscot people considered the Calamus as highly important and effective. There goes a story that their people were plagued by illness. One night, the spirit of a muskrat came to a Penobscot man in his dreams, telling him about the root and its strength. After waking up, the man looked for the root and made a medicine that cured the people. Since then, the strengths of the dried root are found in their homes, and the people believe that steaming it in the house kills sickness.

The Calamus is also used as a replacement for ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, and its aromas are used to make perfume. It was used to make wine, liquor, bitters and absinthe.


Mixing one teaspoon of the Calamus powder with a cup of hot water or juice generates a nice uplifting effect. Especially when drunk on an empty stomach.

Use 15 grams of the Calamus root to create a more stimulating effect. Soak it for a while, and afterwards, boil it with 0.5 litre water for a couple of minutes. Strain the brew before drinking it. The Calamus can be mind-expanding by raising the dosage after personal taste.


A Calamus contains small traces of β-asarone. In small doses, under 115 micrograms, β-asarone is harmless, but it may be carcinogenic in extracts and high doses. Our A. Calamus is European-grown, and one bag of 80 grams contains 1,16 micrograms of β-asarone. 


80 grams of Acorus Calamus in either shredded or powder form

Higher expectations Review by Frank
This tea is very bitter in taste, no hallucinations, even exaggerated but no effect.
But this tea gives you a nice feeling when you are a little down. (Posted on 12/12/2023)
Misunderstood but amazing plant Review by Heinrich
Upon ordering this I, like probably many people, expected something hallucinogenic. Upon further research, which my experience confirms let me say: It is not. It is mildly psychoactive, but not at all something for tripping. What it is, however is stimulating, a great supplement for various other substances and also one of the only things that will get my mind sharp after a night of smoking weed. So experiment with it and please don't ingest 25g of it in the hopes to get a trip or you will throw up. (Posted on 10/19/2020)
