DOSE:
8 seeds oral H.B. Woodrose (seeds)

BODY WEIGHT: 72 kg


I am a very experienced tripper... did practically everything. Shrooms, Acid, Ayahuasca, DMT the whole show. For this reason I didn't follow the recommended dose of 4 seeds and ended up chewing 8 of these big boys. After 30 minutes I started to feel very sedated like after taking a natural kind of heavy tranquilizer. It felt very pleasant and dreamy with a kind of pressure in my forehead. Then came intense nausea, tried to vomit but it didn't work. So I sat on the couch and listened to a guided meditation.

At the 3 hour mark it felt like a very powerful LSD trip except with a huge body load, (intense nausea, high vasoconstriction, stomach cramps and extreme thirst). Thanks to the guided meditation I was able to leave my body for a couple of hours during which I experienced complete ego death. Somewhat scary but at the same time there was an underlying peace and understanding that all was good. I honestly don't ever recall having such a complete (yet aware) ego death on any other psychedelic (even DMT).

After this two hour period was over however I started hearing weird sounds from outside (it was probably just distant thunder or wind in the trees). For some reason I convinced myself that the world was about to end. The apocalypse was imminent... some kind of nuclear disaster, war or natural calamity was about to hit the earth. At that point I started to have a panic attack and found myself pacing back and forth in my apartment. The panic got worse by the minute and at a certain point I was 100% sure I was going to die because of some weird allergic reaction to the seeds. I felt an extreme thirst that no amount of water was able to quench. Then I remembered reading of someone who had died because they drank too much water during an MDMA trip and I literally thought I was having an emergency type situation.

Long story short I ended up calling an ambulance and spent the night in the hospital with the doctors and nurses practically laughing at me (they knew I was just having a panic attack) a very humiliating experience to say the least. What seemed like a beautiful trip turned into a nightmare which I probably could have avoided had I taken just 4 - 5 seeds.
