Headache, Higher Than Expected
Leonotis leonurus (extract)

Citation:   Ravi. "Headache, Higher Than Expected: An Experience with Leonotis leonurus (extract) (exp113399)". Dec 5, 2019.

1.5 g vaporized Leonotis leonurus (extract)
I saw some reports on forums about vaping Leonotis leonurus, aka wild dagga. I decided to order some Leonotis leonurus extract 20:1 (about 10 grams) and smoked probably 1.5g. It was harsh on the lungs and by the looks of what it does to some smoking materials and devices, it looks like it will coat your esophagus and lungs.

I did get higher than I had expected, although short-lived. I'm a very skeptical person and I know this wasn't a placebo effect or effect from lack of oxygen while smoking. It does not taste as bad as people have said, at least this extract didn't. I got noticeably high for about 10 minutes with a lingering effect after that is great for bedtime or if I want to cozy up with a book. I feel cozy and my eyes are kind of droopy a little (I was borderline hyper before smoking). I had trouble walking down the stairs in low lighting, when usually I just step from memory.

But I had some difficulty and something felt peculiar, but not much. It's amazing how reminiscent it is of real dagga (cannabis, marijuana, etc), although it reminded me of some mids. It definitely mellows me out but doesn't make me too drowsy.

I wouldn't pay much for this stuff. It is mellowing though and perfect for anxiety (though not social anxiety, I would go inward). Where I live cannabis is recreationally legal and the laws are not on the books yet, so you can still only legally buy if you have a medical card, which my appt in the only place where I live is 3 weeks away and you have to have your actual card to go to dispensaries. My friend who usually trades pot for kratom and herbs I grow is out. I've needed a break to lower my tolerance though, and wild dagga does give me a bit of the feel so it's easier to quit smoking for a while.

P.s. I used the extract in my vaporizer and it just destroyed my vape.
