T+ 0:00
50 g oral Banisteriopsis caapi (tea)
  T+ 0:00 50 g oral Banisteriopsis caapi (tea)

Black Cherries With Ayahuasca

14:35 - started drinking approx 50g yellow b. Caapi (Crock potted for 24 hours in 3 washes; reduced)
17:35 - finished drinking b.c.
18:00 - started spinning

19:00 - took around 2-3g Acacia confusa (Crock potted for 12 hours in 2 washes; reduced)
19:30 - ate a small amount of cheese popcorn (no effect; I have done this before)
19:30 - ate 10 black cherries
20:00 - started tripping

23:00 - trip was about finished, but I ate 10 black cherries which very mildly increased the trip. I also separately ate some sourdough bread and watermelon which had no perceived effect
00:00 - completely done tripping

12:00 - ate protein shake, kefir, sardines, watermelon, blueberries, and hemp protein
13:00 - serotonin syndrome begins - I thought I looked at light wrong and that was why my eyes were janked; later attributed it to SS
15:00 - the peak pain has subsided but headache remains
21:00 - serotonin syndrome almost completely gone; mild headache

I read about a person who drinks B. caapi tea regularly, who tripped from eating black cherries with it. I couldnít find any more info on it so hereís my contribution for science. I hope to refine the experiment in the future and be able to note the subtle differences more clearly. I have had around 30 ayahuasca trips, but never on such a high dose of B. caapi (itís so expensive!), and such a low dose of A. confusa. For that reason I cannot be certain about the differences.

I thought many thoughts but I didnít want this report to stop and focus on one because then the trip would be remembered for a miniscule part of it. During the trip I ate around 20 black cherries which seemed to intensify or change it somehow. It may have made the trance-state eye-open visuals more pronounced and trance-like, which reminded me of the a single datura seed addition. But this was not so demonic or intense. This was much more pleasant although still a bit creepy because generally I donít have many OEV on ayahuasca, but this time I could easily lose control even with my eyes openÖ

Then again usually my eyes are closed for the first 1-2 hours, so I donít have a lot to compare this to. But in the CEVs, I have a hard time letting go because I believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and I continually feel like ayahuasca may be a sin. Thus when uncomfortable things happen, they just feel wrong. For example I am uncomfortable with aliens putting things inside me, or having sex with me. And these things seem to happen a lot. Twice I have been at a point where I could receive some significant information from a sort of secret society, but I realize YHVH would not want me to, and the entities respect Him, so they taunt me but convey that I have a free pass this time but Iíd better not come back because this isnít for people who love YHVH. But I digress.

This trip I was not in the mood to have CEV because they are too intense for me lately. Thus I kept my eyes open most of the time and was more comfortable.

Moving onÖ The effects were quite powerful for the low dose of A. C.
The effects were quite powerful for the low dose of A. C.
I had a few points of sadness and fear of YHVH, because I canít shake the idea that this feels like itís worshiping other gods. I felt orgasmic all over and thus a bit embarrassed. I was having many negative thoughts unfortunately and had a hard time getting rid of them. Doing other things like reading texts, going outside, and listening to music helped break the negativity.

I played some music on the handpan and then laid down and beat the soft-headed sticks on my chest and body to the beat of Sons of Korah songs. That felt really nice.

I kept wanting human interaction and really missed not having anyone to purely just love, so I went on omegle to talk with some people. I first found a group of 3 guys who were drunk and they kept lying to me and changing whether they were or not gay, their names, etc. They werenít very fun but I talked to them for probably 30 min- 1 hr. Then there was a guy talking about Abrahamic religions and we had good conversation for the same approximate time. The trip lasted a short 2-3 hours. This must have been because of the small A. C. dosage. I took another ~1g on comedown, with no noticeable effect. I did notice a slight increase from eating more black cherries (I think thatís why anyway).

The following day around 13:00 I drank some kefir without even thinking about it and saw stars for about 30 min- 1 hr and then had a horrible headache with hot flashes and nausea for about an hour. Thankfully it went away in about 2 hours but I have a lingering headache now at 21:00. I believe this was a very mild serotonin syndrome. Now I did work out before this happened, but I have never experienced such effects from working out before. I couldnít find much info on serotonin syndrome induced with ayahuasca so maybe this will help someone. Just about 8 ounces of fermented raw goatís milk sure gave me some discomfort.
