I've tried many different substances from Blue Lotus to Salvia 15x. I liked those experiences, but when I read about DMT I had the feeling that it was going to be great stuff. I knew that one could find DMT in several different kinds of plants, but I had no luck finding any of those until I read about Phalaris grass a.k.a. 'Reed grass'. It just so happened that the pond behind my land is bordered with Phalaris grass. I did the research to make sure it was true Phalaris grass and my result was positive.
I stuffed dried Phalaris clippings into an empty cigar roll, grabbed my lighter and walked outside under the stars above. (The amount of Phalaris was equal to about 4 long leafs.) Outside it was calm and quiet, and so it was in my mind. I lit it up, expecting nothing, and then took a long toke. The smoke burned my throat but I held it in for a good 7 sec. After my second toke my balance was slightly off and I felt abnormally heavy, like after smoking good cannabis, and it was pleasent this sensation. I took about 5 more heavy tokes and rested my head back against my truck. I felt gravity in a different and pleasent way. I nice soft swirling sensation filled my brain. I became more aware of colors and sounds, but felt euphoric and relaxed.
I then atempted to walk. Walking wasn't hard, but took more effort in balancing. I then laid on the lawn and looked into the vast array of stars. Nothing appeared more special about them, but laying there another sensation came. As I laid under the stars I felt gravity pull me in a soothing way. I felt very connected to the earth and I sware I could feel the Earth's rotation. I could feel the connection between body and ground, and so aware of it I was that I could feel the deep hum and rotation of Earth. It was all pleasent.
If I really was aware of the Earths rotation, I'll never know, but it was oh so pleasent. Now I shall have to try extracting the DMT from the Phalaris grass. I like this stuff.
