A vigorous perennial herb growing up to 6 feet tall, composed of many long, slender, grasslike
leaves up to 0.75 inch wide rising from a horizontal rootstock. The flowers are minute and
greenish-yellow in color, occurring on a 4 inch long spike resembling a finger. The fruit is
berrylike. Native to eastern North America, Europe and Asia.
Cultivation and Propagation: Calamus is hardy throughout the U.S. and much of Canada. It
thrives best in a rich soil, but can be grown in shallow water on dry land. It is propagated by
division of the rootstock in spring or fall. Pieces of the rhizome should be planted horizontally, an
inch or two deep, a foot apart in each direction, with the leaf-shoots upward. They can be planted
in marshes and at the edges of ponds and streams. They will do well in the garden if the soil is
rich and is kept moist by frequent waterings. Formerly it was maintained that calamus would not
flower unless its roots were submerged in water. This author, however, has seen many
exceptions to this belief.
Harvesting: The rhizomes should be collected when two to three years old, in early spring before
new growth, or in the late autumn. The leaves and rootlets should be removed and the rhizomes
washed thoroughly. They should be dried without the application of heat. Upon drying, the
rhizomes lose 70 to 75 percent of their weight, but improve in flavor and aroma. They should be
stored in a cool dry place, as calamus deteriorates with age, heat and moisture. Also dried roots
are often eaten by worms or small boring beetles. After a year or so of storage the roots have lost
much of their active principle.

of grib and gripau if we could have discovered in the Russian word grib the erotic
associations that would have linked it with our interpretation of grip au, but they

The story ofgrib in the Slavic world is the same that we know well from the
West. At one time the word designated a particular class of mushrooms.

It is known that as the alkyl groups on the nitrogen of (36) are extended in length, the activity is decreased (N,N-diethyl 83) and
finally lost (N,N-dibutyl 84). All these chemicals have been explored parenterally, since the simplest members are known not to
be active orally. However, some of the more sterically blocked analogs have the reputation of being active orally (for example, the
N,N-dipropyl, the N,N-diisopropyl, and the N-tert-butyl), and the alpha-methyl 92 analogs of 5-methoxytryptamines are
unexplored, but represent areas of future research studies and consequently, possible future drug abuse. Infospkchemicalcom
