One Response to “Gin and Calamus”

    Calamus root is also known as cinnamon sedge, flagroot, gladdon, myrtle flag, myrtle grass, myrtle sedge, sweet cane, sweet flag, sweet myrtle, sweet root, sweet rush, and sweet sedge (see Wikipedia). It is a stimulant, and a hallucinogen in high doses, and is currently banned in food production by the FDA. So, you can’t sell Gin and Calamus from behind the mahogany.

    Calamus extract has recently figured into the formulation of a number of “herbal ecstasy” recipes, about which the feds are none too pleased.
