Ayahuasca Without Brewing

Having a free eve I decided it was time for an experiment. I felt positive and had an open mindset with no expectations of what may or may not come. I've been living the clean life of late and only cannabis was in my system, having smoked a few joints prior. I was in a nice comfortable home environment with my sister, and we were watching David Attenborough.

I took around 3g of full spectrum Syrian rue extract with a little pinch of caapi extract for good measure (in a 3:1 ratio) on an empty stomach. 40 minutes later when I could feel the MAOI's beginning to do their thing I ingested 5g of Acacia confusa root bark powder in orange juice. This was interesting to me as my only other experience with confusa was drinking a brew of 5g worth, after taking a dose of 98% harmaline. This experience was definitely stronger, with the same dose of confusa used.

It wasn't too much hassle drinking down the powder in the juice, got a bit powdery towards the end.

Next time I would try blending it. But it was a lot easier to stomach than drinking a brew in some respects. It didn't take long before I started to feel it. At first I felt a little woozy and a little nauseous, I wasn't quite comfortable but this was to be expected. Some time later I threw up a bit. Then sometime after this I was started to notice mild psychedelic effects manifesting, and I purged, and it was a very deep ayahuasca style purge which was welcomed. It was kinda funny in that the purge tasted of orange juice, so wasn't that bad! Quite different to purging ayahuasca, flavour-wise. It got a bit powdery towards the end of the purge but no biggie.

After a very laid back and stress-free purge, the experience shifted gears, and I felt very tranquil and content. It was interesting looking at things, I could perceive everything with this incredible and refreshing clarity. It's weird as I/we take it as a given that things look 'clear' when we're sober. Yet when I'm in this trance, facilitated by my having ingested endogenous brain compounds, it's like the air is sucked from the space and I can see everything in this high definition sparkling clarity.

The experience lasted a few hours, but had a prolonged and pleasant afterglow. This felt as this subtle but present warm inner glow, felt wholesome and nourishing, I could feel this in my stomach too.

I get the impression if the dosage of confusa had been any higher things would have got deeper and more immersive quickly. But I'm impressed at the level of effects I got from just 5g of confusa ingested as is, and the experience was actually more powerful than when I brewed with the same amount. This plant is definitely a potent source of DMT, and I get the feeling the NMT is a really interesting addition to the mix.
