No experience with Magnolia. I'll be sure to check into it.

Edit: Wikipidea was interesting. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honokiol

KFF was nice, but I just now had to hold myself back from ordering Hirsuta and other stuff from Tea Time Botanicals. They're having a sale until Sunday, but it's hard to excuse buying more stuff while my cupboard is full. Though I can sort of justify the Hirsuta, and once that's in my cart, and shipping is paid for, it's tempting to add in some reds, lol. You ever use any of their reds, or can recommend some reds in general? They have a long list of them. I'm looking for stuff that will have a different alkaloid profile than my Green and White Maeng Da, and my Green Hulu.

For thousands of years, Pacific islanders have made a calming drink out of kava, a root that's been called "Nature's Xanax" and "The Pacific Elixir."

Now, MIT researchers are using cutting-edge science to synthesize the feel-good molecules in Kava.

It's work they say could help lead to new treatments for anxiety, pain and insomnia — and to new insights into other medicinal plants.

"What we do in our lab is to actually start from plants that have thousands of years of use in traditional medicine," says Jing-Ke Weng, a biology professor and member of MIT's Whitehead Institute. "So we already know there's something in that plant that works to treat some illness, and we just need to find it."
