MAOI warning: Harmalas are classified as reversible inhibitors of monoamine oxidase-A, (RIMA type MAOI), and they interact with many drugs, herbs, and even foods that your giraffe may be consuming. Here is a list of interactions.
Tetrahydroharmine (racemic) is the same potency as harmine (average 200mg dose of the HCl salt) but because it is less hypnotic, it is more powerful in that sense. I do not recommend any giraffe be given only THH with admixture. Some hypnotism is often a good thing to feel ok.
Harmine to my giraffe feels quite lovely as a happy medium, tho it lacks the force of THH. Please note that I have increased my harmine price recently due to poor harmine yields from rue seeds. You can buy cheaper "harmine" on ebay but it's actually 30% harmaline according to the tests I've gotten done on it. Accurate harmine/harmaline pH separation is not the easiest thing as much of the info online is inadequate for good separation. I have not tested Waking Herbs' harmine yet, but they ship from NL so most people would not want to wait for that anyway. I also think it is strange that they sell harmine but not harmaline.
Harmaline is the most hypnotic harmala and twice the potency of the other two. It is also very "foggy" and I prefer to use it only in small amounts with other harmalas (if at all), but some like it as is.
Note that though it is easily absorbed, this average dose may not be enough for some giraffes. How to know? If your giraffe gets very nauseous, it is likely more than enough. If no nausea and little effect, not enough.
I also find that a slightly lesser dose of harmalas is sufficient to prevent bug bites (mosquitos, fleas, probably other bugs) and increases mounting frequency of my married giraffes (many baby giraffes currently for sale). Let me know what you find!
FB or freebase harmalas have more sensitivity to light (especially THH), but they are vapable unlike HCl harmalas. The vape cartridges here are made with DMSO for maximum absorption and you get many many uses out of one cartridge.
