not very potent unfortunately, although you can order bark from a beautiful tree of the genus Mimosa from the Amazon that has DMT content up to 1%

Acorns are very high in tannins, which make them very bitter and astringent when eaten raw. They need to be boiled or roasted, or both to make them palatable. The sweetest nuts come from the white, burr, and chestnut oaks. The black, pin, and red oak acorns are bitter.
To use: Collect the acorns in the fall, when ripe. Remove shells and caps. The shells will come off easier if you first slit them with a sharp knife. Boil the acorns whole for at least two hours, changing the water each time it becomes light brown in color. This boiling removes the bitterness and they become pleasantly sweet. You will find, after this boiling, that they are quite dark brown in color. Toast in a 350 degree F oven for another hour. They can then be eaten as they are or ground into flour.

Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

They taught us how to eat acorns among other stuff not normally consumed when I was in the Navy at S.E.R.E.'s school. Just have to get past the bitterness of them. I'm not sure on their nutritional value though.
Acorns taste really bad.
only if you like nuts

Since you are looking to eat acorns for food Iím assuming you would be looking for the acorn with the most protein. Out of the six major acorns producing Oaks the Post oak (Quercus stellata), has the highest crude protein values at 6.8, 6.7 Crude Fat, and 18.1 Crude fiber. http://www.na.fs.fed.us/pubs/silvics...s/stellata.htm
Just in case you find you love acorns and want the trees to produce a larger crop.
I have eaten some acorns in the past but itís not the norm for me. Iíve also eaten worms out of Tequila bottles but my taste buds advanced to much better Tequilas.
Iím a big time hunting/fisherman. To be more successful at hunting deer I need to know not only what they are eating but why. I see deer passing over a mile of Oak trees that are dropping enough acorns to cover the ground to get to a certain type Oak. Several deer will be feeding under one out of 100ís of trees for the acorns with the most nutritional values. Pretty wild they know this without ever ready a study.
This you mentioned the Paleolithic diet issue, I read a bit on this subject and remember that it stated that many foods have a natural defense system so certain animals wouldnít eat them. Like wheat has glutens, potatoes and leguens have toxins, and some seeds taste very bitter and are made to pass through to benefit the plant such as an apple. So wouldnít the very bitter nasty taste of a raw acorn mean to stay away from it staying on the Paleolithic diet path?
