5 seeds inhaled Anadenanthera peregrina (ground / crushed)


I have dabbled in a little bit of most –weed, psychedelics, dissociatives, deliriants, stimulants, solvents, sedatives, depressants, etc - though I am most fascinated by naturally occurring intoxicating alkaloids in plants.

My first experience with a plant was when I was six- when I bit into a raw red chile pepper off of a plant I was growing in my parents garden. The burn was good. This progressed to Brugmansia, a young Angel Trumpet tree was given to me by a dear friend. I had never heard anything about this mysterious plant. Then to my Morus berries, and morning glories, hbwr; and finally to this report, Yopo.

I purchased 20 grams of Anadenanthera peregrine seeds from a trusted online retailer for 20 bucks, after thoroughly researching their alkaloids, reported effects, and preparations. I also bought a bag of pickling lime from Wal-Mart for four bucks.
After receiving the seeds I decided to soak ten in water so I could plant them in soil to grow. After about an hour I realized that the seed coats basically came off by themselves. I decided this method may be more easy than heating them in a pan and waiting for them to pop.

The night before the day of my trip I weighed out three grams of seeds (about 20). I put them in a cup of water for approximately 2 hours. I emptied out the water and peeled the skins off of the seeds that still had them on. I spread the seeds out on a surface and allowed them to dry over night.

The next morning I reweighed the seeds. The total weight was a little under two grams. I weighed out .2 grams of pickling lime. I combined both ingredients in a coffee grinder until they were finely powdered, about 45 seconds on and off. I scraped out the powder and divided it into four about equal weight piles. I took one pile and placed it into a plastic microwaveable cup and added a few drips of water, mixing after every few drops until I had a thick paste. I “kneaded” the paste for a few minutes, then allowed it to sit for about ten. I then microwaved this paste in five to ten second intervals on high heat until it was completely dry.
I scraped the flaky mixture out of the cup and placed it back into the coffee grinder and ground until it was once again a fine powder. (I ground it until it was fine enough that I felt comfortable snorting it- so pretty fine, but less fine then flour.) I dumped the powder onto a clean surface and proceeded to organize it into one thick line of light dirty greenish product.

One thing I regret not doing next was making sure I had everything that I would need for an intense trip within arm's distance.
One thing I regret not doing next was making sure I had everything that I would need for an intense trip within arm's distance.
For example: a bucket to purge in, water, ice, a clear place to lay down, locking the door, etc… I made sure to do this the second time though.

0:01- I snorted this powder in one large whiff up my right nostril. Immediately feeling a intense burning. I got up and walked to my living room and sat on the couch.

0:02- I started to feel a pressure on all of my body. Also an odd, but familiar stingy tickle feeling in my neck (I get this on cold water LSA extractions too). I become nervous that I took too much, and tried to blow some out of my nose- but I realized it was a pretty lost cause. I began to panic a little bit but told myself the whole trip would only last about an hour at most, so I calmed myself.

0:04- I feel very off, I can see eye patterns swirling everywhere, and suddenly become very nauseated. I grab the closest thing (which luckily was a empty pan that had contained my lunch) I purged very intensively for a few minutes, dry heaving after my stomach was empty.

0:10- Within a few seconds I became incredibly hot and sweaty and took off all my clothes, Still experiencing intense patterned vision.

0:15- Things became very intense, I was seeing all sorts of things. I ran to my room and tried to become comfortable also opening the window.

~0:20-0:40 I woke up not really remembering how I got from the living room to my room. This is where the best part of the trip began. I was not nauseous, or uncomfortable, the stingy feeling in my neck was gone. I was looking around my room and saw weird laser like lines coming out of everything and connecting to each other. My depth perception was greatly fucked. I could see a little room that was connected to my room through a hole in the top of my wall. My vision became like a an unsolved puzzle. I would see part of my desk but then a part of my bed would be connected to it and then another random square of my room, and so on. I immediately got a huge urge to go pee. I ran to the bathroom. In the bathroom things were odd. I couldn’t remember if the space between things were this large and shadowy when I was sober or not. I looked at myself in the mirror. My pupils were not large, but they were moving in and out actively fast. I could see the weird swirls that reminded me of what I see on my skin when I’m on shrooms or LSA. There were lots of little flickers of shiny dots connected to each other.

0:50- I sat back on the living room couch and enjoyed the rest of my visuals, they faded completely after 20 minutes or so.

Afterwards I was quite tired- but I snapped out of it and went along to do school work that night.

All in all it was a trip that I would do again (and did the next night, with a little lower dose). After that trip I decided it wasn’t worth the uncomfortable stingy neck feeling, overheating/sweating, and purging to not do a large dose. The next time I do the snuff I will do another larger sized dose.
