DOSE:
  smoked Opium (tar / resin)
    smoked Cannabis - Hash (tar / resin)
    smoked Cannabis  
The second day of a camping music fest, I sat with my group and our neighbors in the shade of summer. One of them had bought a black resin block for $250 and was packing himself a bowl: opium on the bottom, hash on top of that, then bud to finish. My drug experiences so far had been heavy preference on stimulants (yay, speed, etc) and psychedelics (L, k, shrooms) as oil/bud could sometimes makes me paranoid.

I knew there was opium in the bowl and given every fest is an opportunity to try a new drug, I gladly took a couple hits. Opium burns for a good bit, so I gotta take my time enjoying it ! We smoked that combo and then packed another opium bowl, all in all a pretty generous first dose.

The taste on first try was odd, sort of sweet. It tastes like it smells (cotton/charcoal type deal) and isnít overpowering. Itís very very distinct. The taste and smell to me now, after smoking it enough, is often sweet and resembling cinnamon.

In about 5-10 minutes for me I began to feel some effects: headiness, surges of warmth, contentment, calm, complete presence. Nothing could make me anxious during this high. I went and sat in the sun and felt tingling in my cheekbones and fingers. Everything was relaxed and peaceful around me. The high is most intense for me the first two hours, though it gradually drops off.

Doses (off g): four pieces for me. Opium is the best high for a lot of people (myself included) so I try to keep from getting selfish. Otherwise Iíd get addicted right quick !

As is said, everything in moderation is pretty great. Opium is for any day, because it gives me the feeling that everything could be and is alright. Like any high, I can give myself a good time with music and nature settings or just chilling on a comfy ass couch.
Wonderful drug. Be careful with it !
