I've been waiting to receive a shipment of psychoactives for about a month. I just got home from school around 6:30 to do some quick tests. My mindset was one of anticipation and excitement, I had a bad day but I tried to clear all negative thoughts from my head. This was hard because the past few days hadn't been so great. I have never done any of the things I did before, it was probably rash to mix so many drugs, but I'd done extensive research and concluded they were safe to have together.

I placed a few sun opener leaves in a bowl, and sprinkled about 15 mg of Kanna on top of it. I smoke the bowl. The Kanna has almost a sweet taste, it's a little harsh and pleasant. It crackles a little bit. The sun opener is harsh and bitter tasting, the smoke from it however smells excellent, like good incense. I than place another 15 mg or so in my mouth and chew. I had so little of the Sun Opener it is unlikely that it was active, and I didn't feel any of its effects.

T: +10 minutes:
The effects of the Kanna are felt almost immediately. I think I felt the effects strongly because I have naturally low serotonin, and suffer from dystimia (very minor depression) maybe a month ago I was put on Lexapro. I had discontinued this medication about a week ago. It is likely that my bad mood of late was partly based of this. Kanna, which is a short term SSRI, seemed to do the trick. I was cracking jokes, and generally in good spirits. I didn't feel high but I did feel altered.

T: +45 Bowl of Sacred Blue, and a Bowl of Pot
Euphoric effects of Kanna continue, they feel stronger at this point. I have left my house and driven to a field with my friend where we often smoke. I decide to pack a very large bowl of Sacred Blue Lotus. It tastes and smells excellent, It's a pleasure to toke. At this point my friend sparks a bowl of pot (the pot isn't quite headies but it's still excellent dro.) As soon as I take the first hit I feel very high. I don't feel pot high, but all of a sudden the Lotus high comes into focus. It has a different texture than a pot high. I felt very lucid, and energized. There was a full moon out, and I noticed it for the first time. I sort of zoned out staring at the moon and thinking how incredible it looked. It stood out on its own, had a different feel than everything else. I can't really explain it but it was interesting, and pleasant. We finished the bowl of pot, and headed back to the car.

[Erowid Note: Driving while intoxicated, tripping, or extremely sleep deprived is dangerous and irresponsible because it endangers other people. Don't do it!]
My friend suggested that I, 'chill' with the lotus for a while because I look like someone on drugs. I explained that I could focus and that I felt completely in control, just that I felt extremely altered. I felt clear-headed, thoughts flowed easily but I had trouble thinking about anyone thing for to long.

T: 1:15
Smoke two more bowls of pot while driving around. The pot high does not take over I still feel the same but more so.

T: 2:00
Drink some green tea, smoke one last bowl and go home. I watch TV for about an hour. I'm ripped.

T: 2:30
Make myself some valerian root tea, and I threw in some salvia leave just for kicks.

T: 2:45
I'm ready for some more experiments. I have some music on and the lights out, I burn a bowl of Salvia D. I use a butane lighter, and hold the smoke in for a long time. Nothing. I repeat. I repeat a third time. I decide to pack a fourth bowl this time mixed with some Sacred Lotus for taste. The salvia tastes like shit on it own, with the Lotus however it's fine. I smoke this last bowl and I begin to feel something. When I close my eyes I see patterns, and a few vivid pictures. Only for a few seconds does it actually seem real though. With my eyes open I feel altered, and things look strange but beyond that, nothing happens. I feel this way for about 15 minutes.

I was disappointed with the Salvia, hoping for some sort of spiritual experience. I plan to make the extract to get things going for real. But for sure, Lotus and Kanna are great with Cannabis. It was a great experience.
