As an everyday medical marijuana user and grower, ethnobotany has always been incredibly interesting to me. I first got the idea to make a 'smokable ayahuasca' when someone had mentioned changa to me. I have tried freebase DMT but found it very inaccessible in the little college town I was living in (street demand is entirely for blow and xanax, no room for psychedelics in this street market), so I found an online source for Acacia confusa resin. I have tried sacred lotus (Nelumbo nucifera) before, and found it to be very pleasant but not quite potent enough for my liking but the same vendor sold lotus flower infused with 10x extract, so I felt encouraged to try to feel a stronger affect from the lotus.
First I pulled out a spoon pipe and loaded 1/2 the bowl with an equal mix of:
-tobacco: for just the slightest MAO inhibition and release of dopamine and adrenaline
-lotus: dopamine release, and I find that smoking the lotus flower in combination with tobacco intensifies the effects of nicotine
-cannabis: just because its everyone's favorite. It tastes good and makes me feel nice.
On top of this herbal mix I crushed the brittle hash-like Acacia 'resin' extract until the bowl was full. On top of this, I powdered a 100x passionflower extract to act as an MAOI.
Inhaling the smooth smoke that tastes of some mysterious sage incense, the passion flower extract bubbled like a beautiful ice wax over the smoldering Acacia

. I hold the smoke in deeply as I would freebase DMT and pass the pipe to my partner test subject.
After two hits I start to feel silly - as if I were coming up on mushrooms - and I state that 'I can feel it right behind my face'. My face starts to feel weird. The herbs burn together while the Acacia smolders on top, forming a bedrock of the hashy substance. Me and my buddy crack jokes about smoking rock.
After a finishing a full bowl I feel euphoric, sedated, and stimulated - slightly psychedelic. Almost like coming down from a mild LSD dose but without the frantic thought processes. My mind became almost completely relaxed - something that doesn't commonly happen on psychedelic drugs - and I was overcome with a sense of well being. After just a few minutes this feeling began to fade, so wishing to adventure deeper down the Acacia journey I load up another bowl - this time in a small water pipe.
Again, we remark at the interesting taste 'Like a Thai massage parlor' - where the Acacia came from! Shipped straight out of Thailand - and feel the psychedelic effects by the second and third toke. This time slightly stronger from the waterpipe. I remember after one pull looking up after exhaling and experiencing what was incredibly reminiscent of the LSD space - straight lines wished to wiggle and colors changed to the mood of myself and the music I was listening to, however these visual effects were only experienced for a few a seconds. I think this is because I was smoking a very simple extract of Acacia confusa, so it would be higher in n,methyltryptamine (NMT) than n,n-Dimethyltryptamine and the only information I could find on NMT is that it can produce visual hallucinations that only persistent for less than a minute.
All in all, I greatly enjoyed smoking Acacia confusa but must say that its not due to potency. My goal in smoking Acacia was to discover a mellow psychedelic that I could take without committing an entire day to tripping, so unfortunately I must say that this resin would be best in a much higher dose in combination with an MAOI in ayahuasca/pharmahuasca. However smoking Acacia in combination with an MAOI (passionflower extract) was a very mild and enjoyable experience so I did achieve my goal there.
In the future I would like to try to make my own Acacia extracts or maybe even MHRB. I would extract pure DMT, however being as clumsy as I am I am terrified of working with corrosive bases like Naptha and/or lye so I would try extractions with water or alcohol.
