I took 7g of moderately shredded Tabernaemontana sananho (Roughly shredded Shiric Sanango wood from Peru from the region around the Ucayali river. Harvested in May 2015 (4 months old at time of taking) and made a tea that was not unpleasant and had some interesting effects.
7 grams of shredded Tabernaemontana sananho
50 ml of 5% Acetic acid/Distilled Water (vinegar)
300 ml of filtered water.
1. Add all the ingredients into a stainless steel pot.
2. Bring to a boil
3. Simmer for 3 minutes.
4. Blend the mix in a blender (make sure your blender can do this) until the wood becomes a pulp.
5. Put the blended tea back on the stove and let it lightly simmer for 10 minutes.
6. Take immediately off of stove and filter the pulp off, the pulp should be slightly moist
T 0 - I drank the tea I brewed, it was not unpleasant but tasted a bit woody and of course tasted a bit of vinegar.
T 5min - I started noticing a slight elation and overall feeling of well being
T 10min - I felt very elated, giddy, and was very clear of thought.
T 15min - I left my apartment to meet a friend as they got off of work. As I was walking down the streets of my metropolitan city at 10pm, I was very happy and looking at strangers more than usual, my mind would dart about to think about the people and their lives, I would look intently on their body language and interactions with others and the world. I felt as if I had a heightened sense of awareness.
T 20min - I met with my friend at the store then proceeded to buy some goodies for when I got back home. While in the store I was very happy and chatty more than normal, and cracking jokes. Later My friend told me that I seemed goofy and spacey (meaning I didn't stick to a topic for very long) I feel like this was the peak.
T 30min - I got back home with my freind, I was still goofy and elated.
T 60min - I still felt elated, but the goofiness had subsided and the prior clarity had subsided to a normal level.
T 90min - I still felt elated, prior clarity and goofiness was gone, I decided to smoke some cannabis (about 1g Sativa-Third Eye Haze with a pipe) to see if it was still affecting me (I am generally very tuned to the effects of cannabis)
T 105min - Under the full effects of the cannabis, I could not detect any alterations nor any changes to the come up, the elation tuned into the elation I feel under the effects of cannabis.
