The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]
Last summer, about 7 months ago I tried weed for the first time. Since then I have been smoking about twice a week or so. It was great at first, but to my dismay I found myself in that common stereotype 'weed isnt strong anymore. I need something stronger'. But I didnt care, I wanted to 'expand my mind' whatever that meant. I read and I read and I read about every hallucinogen I could find on erowid and lycaeum, and various other sites. Lsd, shrooms, peyote, dmt, salvia, they all facsinated me. I knew I wanted to try one, and I came across some information on a substance called lsa which is found in heavenly blue morning glory seeds. From what I read, it seemed safe, and a way to test the waters.
The seeds were very easy to get. I ordered 100 grams of untreated seeds off the net, and got some friends into the idea of tripping on them. In all the time before I actually tripped, I would think about how wonderful it must be to trip, while having absolutely no clue what it really was like. But on the several occasions when I was planning to trip on the seeds, fear would catch up with me and I would lower the dose significantly. So after a few unsuccessful attempts at this drug, I decided if I really want to trip I need to cut the crap. Me and a friend decided on a date when we would trip, and I knew I would not wimp out this time with the dosage.
I ground up a large number of seeds in a pepper grinder, which proved to be quite laborous and time consuming. But the powder that came out was very fine, well worth the labor. I made up a dosing system in which 200 seeds worth of powder were contained in little aluminum balls. Each ball I considered to be 1 hit.
My friend came over on the pre-determinded date to partake in this mental exploration with me. Like me, he only did weed, but was curious about other things. I was origonally planning on taking around 4 hits, or 800 seeds worth. But fear caught up with me so I decided to comprimise at 3 hits. My friend also decided on 3. We each took a big plastic party cup and filled them up to the top with water, then dropped in the powdered seeds. Over a period of about 15 minutes we stirred ocasionally. Looking in my cup I realized what taking this drug would involve-the slurry did not look appetizing. But after much will power we both managed to down the seed-water at about 9 pm, and waited for the inevitable trip.
Half hour-nothing, besides feeling queesy. Same at about an hour, a little less queesy. At an hour and a half I was worried we had not done this right. I felt a bit different, but still basically the same. I wanted to trip so much that I opened up a small box of powdered seeds and began swallowing them dry. I have no clue how much I took. Probably around 300. I read that if you smoke weed while tripping on lsa, there would be a synergic affect, supposed to be very intense. I figured that nothing was really happening from the lsa, so a little weed couldnt hurt. After all, I was very used to weed, I could handle it. So me and my friend smoked a bowl apiece of some decent bud.
I was first just getting a little stoned off the weed. Then...I was hit my a psychedelic freight train. I cant really put in words what it was like, it was so utterly devistating. My mind was still firmly in reality, but my body felt so incredibly weird. My heart was beating so fast and so hard I thought I would surely die. For about a half hour or so I was primarily concerned with my heart, which was going BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM. My friend kept me from freeking out, which I am trankful for. It would have been so much worse if I was alone. The whole time I was thinking about how stupid I was for eating all those dry seeds. The trip was already this scary, I wanted it to end. The idea that hundreds more seeds were in the process of being digested and I would shortly succum to their effects and the trip would intensify was not appealing. Then, I started to realise that I could control the trip. It intensified even more, but it was completely controlable. To my astonishment, my thoughts were for the most part coherent and I was able to type fine on my computer. Nevermind the fact that I had never felt so ridiculously strange in my life.
My mind started to shatter. For example, my friend started to do something that bothered me and I said 'stop that' but it echoed throughout my mind endlessly. Over and over and over again. My mind was stuck in loops like that. Music was incomprehensible jibberish. I would start a song on kazaa, then get lost in a dreamworld, then look back at the timer on kazaa and see only a minute or 2 had gone by.
Then came the hallucinations. They were not clear cut like I thought they would be, or anything like I thought they would be for that matter. Green, green, green, everywhere was green. My whole field of view was writhing in what resembled worms....green worms. Writhing, writhing, everything writhing. My room had taken on an eerie tone. The formations of the posters on my wall, the shadows, the floor, ceiling, everything, they all took pieced together to make patterns that I have never noticed before. I remember distinclty hearing little feet running all around my room. Running up the walls, across the floor. But keep in mind that no matter what I hallucinated, it was never really scary. Once I had realised how controllable the trip was nothing was really scary anymore.
I gazed outside my window at the trees. It was like staring at a painting. Sereal is the only word that comes to mind. The stars were jumping around, dancing.
At many times in the trip I knew that if I wanted to I could have acheived ego loss. Maybe I did, and dont remember. There is so much to say, but much I dont remember. Its too bad that we didnt go outside like we had planned. Its just that my mom or dad might get suspicious if they woke up and saw us bumbling around like little kids with pupils as big as quarters.
The comedown from the trip gave a feeling like I was drunk. I dont drink really, I dont like the taste or the affects of it, but I was certain this is what it is like. Plus we were dead tired. At about 4 we fell asleep.
This drug is completely controllable, but it is very easy to panic and flip out. In a word, I would describe tripping on this substance as madness. But not in a bad way
Overal a rough but good trip
