I took 2 ml of [commercially available tincture] to sort of stop the post-acid humming that often leaves me without sleep though I'm very tired from the trip and all I did during it (I get very busy during acid trips). I have opioids and a few benzos for this purpose, but Benzo's are getting scarce and expensive. As an arthritic, my opioids have to last out the month (Lest I drink some Pod tea and seriously fuck up my tolerance for real medical use, but that's another report I guess).
To steer away from these, I purchased some [commercially available tincture] with Rhodolia, St. John's wort, Avena Sativa (which are just oats, sorry) and the real interest, Albizia Julibrisin, all in very vague levels, but I was assured by the somewhat ungainly girl at the Holistic place we have here in town that sold me the stuff, it would be a great product for anxiety.
I thought for a second telling her that some carbs in her life and a job that wasn't selling magic potions to stupid people might do a similar job, but instead thanked her and left.
There is an ingredient list, but no measurements of what do you call em? Compounds? Do Holistic Health places sell compounds? Anyway no measurements aside from what the bottle says to do with the liquid, 1-2 ml of this wood alcohol tasting crap, three times a day in a bit of water. I downed 2 ml with water in a shot glass, cuz I wanted very badly for it to be like getting high.
I waited an hour, got nothing, and tried the nasty shit again (its not that horrible tasting, but it's got that Holistic tincture/witch's brew taste to it). There may have been something there, but it was minor if not a total placebo. If anything would've made the effects apparent, it would be two stale tabs of pretty good acid in need of a come down. After another hour of waiting I fell asleep, which may have been an effect of the tincture, but I'd been up for like 20 some hours, tripped balls for a good eight of those, then burned up the last of my energy waiting for the Chinese Happy Bark to start friggin barking.
I don't know for sure if my own experiments are concluded as this was a tincture and I don't know what actual bark might do, ala real Corynanthe Yohimbe to a supplement. But I've been around enough to know I like a real ride, not vague suggestion. A psychonaut of high standing who needs a bit of calming needs to keep looking, or stop looking, cuz benzos and opium fulfill this unique need very well.
