I was 19 at the time and had been interested in deliriants/disassociatives after an interesting encounter with DXM. I had began reading all about the datura and nightshade families and had become increasingly interested in tropane-containing plants.

On my usual morning walk I noticed to my surprise and delight a large tree filled with various delicate, ghost white angel trumpets in a neighbor's yard, with a long branch containing two flowers outwardly extended over their gate and onto the sidewalk.

I gingerly picked the two flowers and a couple of leaves from said branch and walked home. I ended up brewing a tea from what I collected, boiling it for about 15-20 minutes before straining it into a sieve and into a small mug nearly filling it. My cousin happened to walk in unexpectedly and was curious as to what I was doing. I explained to her the plant I had picked and boiled into a tea contained several psychoactive tropanes and was poisonous. This didn't deter her, and in her curiousity she asked to try it so I poured her an ounce of two of the dark yellow liquid and as both sound minded adults we both drank our respective portions. I will lay out the events further in chronological order as so not to confuse anyone.

2:00pm: we drink our respective portions of the tea, talk and head out to get coffee at our local coffee shop.

2:30pm: we arrive and order our drinks. I feel very calm and lucid most the way there and I find it is easier to talk and express myself to a certain degree.

3:00pm: we finish our drinks and decide to smoke 2 bowls of quality dispensary hybrid marijuana before heading home. The weed just adds to my current intense, blissful calmness.

Overall I did not experience much with the dosage I took, most likely due in part to the ratio of water to plant matter, however this was more of an experiment than anything else. I did genuinely feel a warm, encompassing calmness and my vision felt very very slighly unfocused however in comparison to reports I've read I was quite lucky. There arent many psychoactive agents in brugmansia/angel trumpets/tree datura as I had originally suspected. Unlike the name (and much to my dismay), tree datura is actually not just datura frowing from a tree and can in fact be quite poisonous. Even so, I had quite the blissful experience and would count myself lucky; I now carry a certain reverance for the plant. Unlikely to try it again.
