I recently acquired a couple ounces of sassafras from a local health food store. The woman at the counter told me the most common use was flavoring homemade root beer, but I had heard that when concentrated it was like a very mild, organic extacy.

I started by dumping two ounces of the red bark into boiling water. After about a half hour of boiling, I strained out the bark and boiled off a little more water. Iím left with about a cup of dark, reddish brown liquid.

I'm a little sick today with nothing to do and ran out of all my keef last night, so I decide to give it a go. I start brewing my favorite black tea: Darjeeling Mango. Iím pretty sure the caffeine won't detract from the effects, hopefully it will add to them. After pouring the tea I add my usual one generous spoon of sugar, and then two generous spoons of the sassafras brew.

T: 0:00- Tastes delicious! Mango with a hint of bitter root beer.

T: 0:02- bye bye tea, even the chunks didnít taste bad.

T: 0:06- playing team fortress now feeling slight body high maybe a little more than the caffeine.

T: 0:15- Game is really fun, feel pretty floaty and nice, calmness spreading throughout me. Laziness but I also feel clarity.

T: 0:27 laziness increased a little, some nausea, maybe because I havenít eaten anything, gonna go eat.

T: 0:38 That food tasted almost better that when I'm stoned, and the sun felt great. Iím going to go put on some more black tea.

T: 0:45 Iím feeling sober now, although with a feeling of relaxation and wellbeing.

In terms of narcotic value the dosage I took was not very effective, at no point did it give me extreme euphoria like I was hoping. It did have a nice overall feeling, at that dosage it was like a ďwellness tea.Ē I feel relaxed and somehow healed. I hope to get better results with a higher dose, or boiling of the water to make powder.

Peace and Respect
