"When historians pick up their pens to write the story of the 21st century, let them say that it was your generation who laid down the heavy burdens of hate at last and that peace finally triumphed over violence, aggression and war. So I say to you, walk with the wind, brothers and sisters, and let the spirit of peace and the power of everlasting love be your guide."
-- John Lewis (1940-2020)

DOSE:
  oral Huperzine (capsule)

BODY WEIGHT: 125 lb


My experiences with Huperzine have generally been good. It greatly enhanced my creativity and focus, I felt as if everything made sense, somewhat like what one may feel on psychedelics but milder and it was a logical sense as opposed to a spiritual sense. Everything I said and thought flowed very well and I felt like I could win an argument with anyone about anything. The recommended dose was 1-2 capsules (100mcg each) but I found that I needed to take 3 or 4 to get where I wanted to be. Something I read other people experienced that I also noticed was that though it made new concepts more comprehensible, nothing I learned on it would stay in my long term memory.

The first time I took it in pill form I took 6 at night which made me feel somewhat ill. The next morning I took 4 and a couple hours later I felt very badly again. I left school and laid in bed where I proceeded to have an experience like that of a DXM trip, but more simple, the main characteristic being that I perceived my body visually and in a psychedelic sensation in 3 different forms. One was much skinnier than I am and one was much fatter, and each had a different sort of personality all of which felt alien to me. I was removed from myself and it seemed that the me which I was observing was, not dangerous, but like something that would play slightly malicious pranks. I then proceeded to fall asleep and jolted awake from a nightmare into a half asleep half awake phase in which I was mostly incapacitated and had the very hazy but powerful hallucination of a dog running at me and jumping on me as if it was going to attack me. I then stood up very uncoordinatedly and walked around but saw many duplicates of everything in my vision and could not walk straight. I laid back down and about 30 seconds later I was able to function normally.

When I described this to my friends they all said it was pretty horrible and that I should stop fucking around but I really enjoyed it, like a roller coaster thrill, I guess because I was too incapacitated to really understand it while it was happening and the afterthought was fun.

It was pretty fun and taking too much made me feel like shit.
