Acacia obtusifolia is an Australian native found primarily along the South-East coast of Australia. This plant tends to grow along rocky ridges of the forest margin and flowers in the summer. Obtusifolia reportedly contains the indole alkaloids N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT) & N-methyltrypamine (NMT), alkaloids derived from L-tryptophan and found endogenously in many plants & animals including the mammalian brain. Whilst extremely varible reports claim up to 0.6% in the bark & 0.2% in the phylloid. Along with other alkaloids and constituents, obtusifolia is a powerful plant teacher with a suggested history of use throughout Indigenous Australia. Acacias in general were important food, medicine and material for Australia's First Nations people. It's population is considered under threat due to overharvesting and land clearing.
