0.5 g oral Cannabis (edible / food)
This morning about 10am I heated up a splash of olive oil, about a tablespoon, in a non-stick pan, and I waited until the oil was smoking hot before adding to it a heaped teaspoon of potent culinary herbs.

While the herbs were frying I whisked up an egg & waited several minutes further before adding it to the pan. Once the omelette had properly cooked I added a pinch of salt & ate the lot in twenty seconds. Then I went about my day.

Within an hour I could feel it. Like an enormous surge of adrenaline in my stomach, it kept building & building until I thought it couldn't possibly get any stronger, though it did, until it felt as though I were in freefall from forty thousand feet. No, really. Thatís exactly how strong the effects were.

Nonetheless I was determined to put up a fight. When Jane returned from her appointment we took a walk in the rain.

Although I was by now powerfully intoxicated, indeed I felt more or less completely blasted, I was still able to hold up my end of the conversation, evidently without Jane noticing anything untoward. In total we walked about five miles during which I experienced several instances of open-eye visuals (OEVs) consisting of fleeting pictures of my various thought processes reinterpreted as such. I found this particularly agreeable. Nonetheless the overall effect was for me simply much too strong. Indeed it is only now, within the past thirty minutes, or nearly seven hours later, the effects are finally receding.

For this particular culinary herb I would not use the ingestion method again, as it was much too overpowering. By comparison, the ignition & inhalation method was the preferred method. Got some fine Australian chardonnay poured now, and enjoying the libation. No, the culinary herbs haven't quite finished with me yet. There is an afterglow.
