First Try of a Dream Herb

Mindset : I was in a bad mood. I'm sad, unhappy, bitter and angry and was a bit depressed that day. I'm over 40 years old and my life is a total mess. Thinking about it, remembering my first memories as a child, it is obvious and undoubtful that there was no other way for me to be.

Drugs and medications : I had taken 10 grams of blue lotus and half a liter of beer on the eve's evening, and smoked some mid-grade pot. That day, I had smoked pot during the day and drunk some light catuaba tea in the afternoon. I took some ezomeprazole (the name for the active chemical in the medication) which was prescribed to me by a doctor. It acts against the stomach acid by modifying the body chemical balance which produces it. I take this medication very rarely, as I noted that a significant tolerance was quickly built and leaded to an increased acid production by the stomach. I'm building quick tolerance to a wide range of active substances, maybe because I smoke large amounts of pot for years, of for another reason.

I've tried a lot of herbal highs. My health doesnt allow me to take large doses of mescaline cacti, LSA seeds and other toxic plants, so my strongest experiments were with Salvia. I like fly agaric at moderate dosages a lot too. I'm using kratom once a week , but it is sometimes disappointing.

Entada rheedi is sold as 'african dream herb'. Very littele information is available. Beside Entada, as a 'dream herb' I tried Calea zacatechichi. I really like the taste of smoked Calea. I never drank Calea tea, but I extracted some tar of the Calea and have smoked 'concentrated Calea ' cigarettes. It produces a marijuana-like effect. It gave me strong and memorable dreams two times, and nothing the other times. As a pot smoker, I don't remember my dreams most of the time.

I bought three Entada rheedi seeds from my usual legal high supplier some weeks ago. The seeds are big, brown and shiny. The external enveloppe is very very hard. I had a tough time opening it. I powdered a little less than 1/32th (250 mg ?) of the white inside, which is dry and hard, and mixed it with pot. I rolled and smoked a cigarette. The taste of pot was totally annihilated.
The taste of pot was totally annihilated.


The first tokes had nearly no taste at all, then the smoked tasted more and more earthy before turning to something which reminded me of a detergent perfume. It was tolerable, but left me with a slight headache and nausea. At the half of the joint, I started to feel something which was not the effects of marijuana. These effects still grew during the next 1/4 an hour. I became a bit sedated and it was easy not to think. Also colors were a bit brighter and perspective shifted a bit. I was feeling smaller than usual, except at a time when I felt taller. Globally, it was like the first onset of fly agaric, but without the joy and relaxation, or of a threshold dose of Salvia, but without the thoughts. I was ok, except for the slight nausea and headache which seemed to come from the long lasting unpleasant but mild taste. My mind was more cloudy than with other substances. The sedation was a bit weird, I was having few thoughts and they seemed distant. I was no more depressed, but realised at one time that I was thinking about the depressing situation to a point I was nearly crying. I was witnessing my thoughts. I was sad and about to cry, while consciously feeling absolutely neutral. Later, I felt hungry and ate with great pleasure. The light nausea totally disappeared, the other effects lasted.

Three hours after the first one, I smoked another half of mj / Entada cigarette. I then went to sleep.

I woke up the next day without remembering any dream. There were no side effects. I was 'normally depressed' like some of the other days. As a dream herb it failed. But I feel that those seeds have a strong hallucinogenic potential. It was a mild dose but it totally overpowered marijuana. It was more potent than a similar amount of Yopo smoked the same way. It is long lasting and modifies the perceptions while seeming to numb some areas of the brain. Also , I felt a strong 'plant spirit presence', very strong, if one keeps in mind the mild character of the experience.

Iíll certainly try again, in order to see if something happens. It is not a fun drug, but it can uncover some interesting knowledge.
