  smoked Opium  
    smoked Cannabis (plant material)
I wanted to try the drug I have being hearing of since I was a child, in my history classes, the one that caused the opium wars.
I went with a friend to the Nacional University in Bogota to get a rock of colombian opium and since there one can do drugs without being disturbed by the police we took a smoke in there. I put the opium in a cigarette to taste it alone, without ganja, smoked it and sat on a fallen tree to watch the park we had around. It was a 5pm sunny day and the colors were pretty cool; the sun was shinning instensly but just enough to take a good look of it, and all the greens were brighting just like the pale blue of the sky. I couldn't stop laughing, but it was a laugh of pleasure, I was very happy and calmed and I focused completely in all the nature that was surrounding me. My mind was very clear and enlightened, and I didn't move not because I got tired like after smoking lots of pot as I was told, but because there was no need according to what I was thinking in the moment with complete concentration. When I wanted to get up, I did and walked very simply and with no problem at all, but that was long after I had smoked.

When the effect began I felt the action of the drug in every part of my body, I felt every muscle relax one by one. A had in a moment a feeling of euphoria and that was what caused me a pleasure laugh.

My accurate thoughts were the only thing that mattered, nothing else did, I could think deeply leaving everything else aside.

The effect lasted for a long time and when I came down I felt like I had been in a spa for a month. Really relaxed.

The taste of opium is delicious, one of the most delightful taste I have ever had. It tastes like flowers, a wax of flowers.

Afterwards in another park we smoked opium with pot and at first I felt only the effect of the pot but not long after I felt the warm effect of the opium and enjoyed it profoundly, and I noticed it was different and every time else it has been.

According to the dose the effect varies even more and at high doses one can go so deeply in their thoughts they daydream.
