Too Strong
Blue Lotus & Alcohol
by Sha
Citation:   Sha. "Too Strong: An Experience with Blue Lotus & Alcohol (exp42685)". Oct 17, 2009.

2 glasses oral Alcohol - Beer/Wine (liquid)
  10 g oral Lotus/Lily - Nymphaea nouchali var caerulea (liquid)


Lotus is an old friend, I have had many experiences with the flower of the Nile. I started with joints mixed with weed or alone, then the tea, both were very relaxing and some visuals with higher doses.

But every time I soak the lotus in wine for up to 2 days and consume, I get a stimulant effect. I could drink a glass or 2 of the lotus wine and continue to drink the rest of the night without getting too drunk and little hangover. I wanted to see how a larger dose felt so I soaked 10g lotus in 1/2 bottle resling wine (2 glasses), for five days. On the night of the fifth day I drank the two glasses with some of the plant matter. The mix was extreamly bitter compaired to the usual 2day soaking. It had a dry aftertaste that the wine alone dosn't have. The first effects were felt within ten minuets, the usual warm head (wine), and clearness of thought and a feeling of wanting to converse with everyone (lotus). I am normaly introverted and like to sit quietly.

Normaly it stops there and I have a great night. But I kept going higher and feeling more energized. It had only been a half hour since ingestion, and I was higher than I've ever been on lotus. It felt like I had taken a rail of coke. I had to walk around and couldn't stay in one place long. I found myself pacing around my house and yard incredably jacked up. My heart was pounding and my body felt like every cell was vibrating, strong CEVs and visuals 1 1/2 hours. Then I droped down to a normal feeling of lotus and wine. I canít stress how uncomfortable I was and I will not let it soak so long ever again.
