Pine Pollen users unite! What has been your experience?

@Marjory Wildcraft and I have been experimenting with pine pollen. We like to eat it straight, and it can make for some slightly hilarious situations. Ever tried to talk with a mouth full of pine pollen? 😂

If you have used pine pollen, what are your experiences with it and how did you prefer to take it?

This morning I used a different sort of spoon to take mine and ended up making a complete mess.. channeling my inner bumble-bee!

    OMGosh! This photo...

    What are your thoughts on this stuff? Can you tell if it's doing anything for you?

    The short answer is yes, it has had a positive effect for me. The taste is somewhere between bitter, sweet, and sawdust. I like it!

    I've been trying this too. Ib ought this big bag of it... they suggested taking 1 tsp to 1tbsp 3x per day. Yup, definitely feeling uh, yeah, how to describe it? Rowdy?

    The pollen itself is so so so fine... seriously you want to be careful breathing around it. And the taste? Well, since I've been feeling so good with it I really have come to like the taste. I sort of look forward to my tbsp as a little snack.

    It definitley has an effect that I like.

    It keeps me up at night!

    Alien harvesting technology?

    Giant mutant pine trees?

    ..or are we just eating slightly flavored sawdust?! 🤷🏼‍♂️

    I have bee pollen that is granulated...maybe they just grind it up? Or, Alien harvesting....that's a possibility too! Giant mutant pines...yeah, totally plausible. 😁🌲

    If you have hay fever allergies, I'm assuming it's probably not a good idea to take it? Or can it strengthen the immune system as some homeopathic hay fever remedies supposedly do?

    @Marc Thoma it would only act homeopathically if its prepared with a homeopathic method past Avogadro's number (so that would mean in potency of 12C/24X or higher (higher in homeopathy means MORE diluted so higher is less chance of original material in the remedy and more pure frequency of the original compound)..otherwise it will still have the actual allergen within the remedy and it will cause a response to those who are allergic.

    So, personally, I would stay away from it if you have a fear of allergic reaction...then maybe, look into why the allergy exists to begin with. Then, remove the allergy , and enjoy the pine pollen :)

    Happy Healing

    Pine pollen is the easiest pollens to collect. In the spring, when the trees flower, just bumping into one will shower you in a cloud of pollen. Just put a bag around a limb and give it a little jiggle, and repeat. If it is a windless day, you can tarp the tree and shake it all at once. It goes pretty fast but requires some straining because you get a decent amount of debris and flower parts mixed in. I collected different pollens for a Botany class, and the cool thing was most of it acted like a liquid when placed in a mason jar.
