Kava Crack

I have always preferred smoking to drinking. And in my recent midlife crisis, I have recently been picking up more and more smoking habits...cigarettes, weed, crystal meth...but I wanted to try legal highs, and I have been doing some research. I picked up a bag of noble kava powder and PEA because I heard how they go together.

After drinking it and feeling it, but wasting so much, I really wanted to smoke it. So, I mixed a teaspoon of kava and a half teaspoon of PEA. This was mixed with a spoonful of sodium bicarbonate and enough (bottled) water to mix it into a paste. I let it sit out under the sun to dry on a sheet of aluminum foil. While it did thicken, it never really dried out.

I decided to take the leap. I cleaned out my meth pipe and dabbed about 3mg into the bowl. It was a bit messy. I lit underneath and I heard sizzling cracking and popping. It was not easy to smoke, and it tasted just like the smell. Both chemicals are so distinct in flavor. I decided to inhale the smoke coming out of the bowl rather than use the pipe. And I felt the effects rather quickly. I switched back to the pipe and the air in the bowl popped out and I took in a huge hit. I went back and forth getting in about 6-7 hits from the bowl.

I am still feeling the effects. It has currently been 25 minutes. I feel some tightness in the chest that is common to smoking in general. I am quite lightheaded, but I am lucid enough to write this. I am tempted to take more. But I want to ride it out. Could this formula really work? Iím not a chemist, but I obviously based this off of freebasing cocaine. How good or bad have I done? I feel a haze that goes around the back of my head. Iím aware, but almost numb as I lay here in bed typing this on my phone. Iím focused on writing this, but peaceful. Relaxed.

The smell/taste will always suck. But otherwise I find this very pleasing. It has now passed the 30 minute mark. The whole experience lasted about 40 minutes. I even had to take a phone call and help someone out with business. I was coherent, but soothed.

I went back to the bowl to smoke a bit more. After about 7-8 hits, it came on a lot lighter and softer than previously, but after about 10 minutes, I realized that I could feel the soft haze in the back of my brain. It is very comforting. It is also a different feeling when compared to the drink. More body numbness and lightheadedness.
