CallMeGhost reporting on an interesting experience on marijuana and assorted legal herbs. I have been making sure to leave at least a week between doses of anything to prevent cross tolerance, or last week's substance interacting with a different one.

Some time ago, when I was running low on weed, I mixed in a goodly amount of p flower extract, blue lotus extract and wild lettuce. I had high hopes for the lotus, as I have tried it before, so when I mixed it all up and had the following experience, I was pleasantly surprised.

After smoking the entire blunt, I felt a really subtle non weed buzz, that slowly increased over 15 or so minutes until it peaked. During this time I began to see 'running lights' of blue and red with open eyes, and hazy but slowly sharpening colors with open eyes. It seemed that the OEV were really strong closer to my face but if I looked more than a foot away they faded/got blurry. When I made it to my bed, I put my blanket over my head to try to sharpen the visuals. I noticed the CEV were the same as the OEV, but much sharper, and with the blanket on me, it made the OEV more 3D.

Now, the closest thing I can compare to this would be a very low level DMT trip, but it was not the same. The body high was amazing, no feeling of flying through hyperspace, no disorientation, but very vivid images. I saw landscapes, cars, buildings and people, and it seemed the visuals responded to my thoughts, but slowly. Example: I started seeing things that looked like cars, futuristic Batman like things, and I thought, this is nice but I don't like cars, show me something else. I started thinking I want to see people, and I thought it in a way that I wanted to change my cars into people (please stop showing me cars, that's not interesting to me) and I saw a woman's face very very slowly materialize out of a car, and then suddenly there were about a dozen 'people' that I could see. These images were very vivid and oddly colored (people had yellow Simpsons skin, weird color hair, interacted with each other before fading and returning as a different shape. After about 45 minutes (15 minute come up +20 minute peak and about 10 minutes fading away) the visuals turned into little blue yellow and red stars and then slowly disappeared altogether.

This was surprising to me to see such vivid images, and a very pleasant high.
