    Dandelion root gets me high. WTF?

    Every now and then, I pick a huge dandelion, fridge the greens, pull the stringy roots off of the nice carrot-like main roots, rinse it pretty well, chop it into just-less-than-boiling water and put the lid on for about ten minutes. Then I drink the water and eat the roots. I do this because of how nice and young it makes my skin look, and for the truckload of nutritional/medicinal benefits. I also leave some remnant dirt in the crevices. Drinking the water almost instantly makes me super relaxed and calm, like a drug. It slows my reaction time and makes me not want to look around the room. I often forget about this high until it hits me. Anybody else do this, or notice this?

    "Dandelions are also said to be able to repel witches if gathered on Midsummer's Eve. Other magical abilities attributed to dandelions include increasing ones psychic ability and divination when used in a tea."

    :-D

    Perhaps your dandelion was previously sprayed with Round Up?

    Who's going to pick and eat a dead dandelion?
    5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently keeping food tracker.

    I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.

    If you know anything about dandelions:

    1.) they are impervious to any weed killing chemicals

    2.) you need a post-hole digger to get one fully out of the ground

    Summary:

    DANDELIONS WILL ONE DAY TAKE OVER THE WORLD, OXIDE!

    Okay, so I lied about them not responding to weed killer, but Knifegill's dandelion
    couuuuuuuuld have just been freshly sprayed, as I've noticed it takes about FOUR
    DAYS afterwards for the damn thing to die.

    So see, it coulda happened......... it coulda.

    The Teeccino company now has a blend that is made primarily with roasted dandelion root (their other ones had roasted grains). It tastes awesome. I've been drinking it a lot lately but I haven't noticed any buzz.

    It is supposed to be very nutritious though. If you were a serious coffee freak looking to wean yourself off, mixing a little of this stuff in your java each day, then a little more, would be a painless way to do it.
