10 seeds oral H.B. Woodrose (seeds)
After extensive research, I decided to try the Hawaiian Baby Wood Rose seeds. I ordered 20 grams of seeds, which turned out to be a lot more seeds than I had thought. Me and my friends B and S went fishing. B scraped the fuzz from the seeds, which is reported to cause nausia and took 8 seeds.

We returned to B's house, where we picked up a case of beer which we intended to drink if the experiment fizzled. We then went to S's house for the night, and me and S scraped 10 seeds each, ground them as best we could with forceps and a meat tenderizer, soaked them in cold water for about an hour and drank the water.

B had reported only uncomfortable feelings, but no major effects. Within an hour, S and I began feeling quite tired and sick. I laid with my head down for about 30 minutes, half asleep. It was then that S decided to get his mom to take B home, and I walked to my house right up the road.

As soon as I stood up I began feeling very strange. I walked home in a thunderstorm, very slowly, stopping in my yard to have a cigarette. I went inside, said goodnight to my parents and went to my room.

I went to my computer and played mario for super nintendo on my emulator in slow motion, which was qutie entertaining. I then watched david letterman, who had jackie chan on the show, and burst out laughing for no apparent reason.

After watching some TV I noticed that when the screen briefly went black, looking out the windows was strange. I turned the TV off, leaving no lights on in the room, and watched the thunderstorm for an hour with a huge grin on my face.

I did not experience any visuals really, I would describe it as a euphoriant rather than a hallucinogen. Overall, I would say it was very pleasant after the nausea wore off. I called S the next day and he said he had the same kind of experience. B only got sick.

From this I would recommend to anyone trying them for the first time to use a cold water extraction rather than chewing the seeds. And don't expect an acid trip, it is NOT acid, but it is a very interesting journey.
