3.5 g oral Lotus/Lily - Nymphaea nouchali var caerulea (tea)
    oral Alcohol - Beer/Wine (tea)


I have been researching and experimenting with entheogens for the past year and a half and recently heard about Blue Lotus. I've been stressed out at home and at school and have been trying to find the peace inside me again. It's been becoming harder to stay positive and focuse on what I need to do in my life and I've frankly grown restless of this. I have started actively meditating and this has worked, but I can't always just relax and forget about my problems. This is where entheogens came into my life and actually tonight, blue lotus.

I took roughly 3-4 g and steeped it in boiling water for approximately 15 min. I then just added some honey, though it didn't really need it b/c it tasted pretty good, and drank it. I then proceeded to drink a couple beers because I heard how good blue lotus can be with alcohol. This was around 6:30 pm and my day before was pretty normal. Nothing to good happened but nothing extraordinarily bad. I just wanted to let go, relax, and feel peace again.

T:+0:15- I was starting to feel drunk, but not like it was because of the alcohol. This was a floaty kind of drunk, and I had only had one beer at that point.

T:+0:25- I now was getting a little giggly and had an unerasable smile on my face. I also heard a buzz in my head (I usually do hear a buzz, which is not a physical problem, but this was very distinct and in itself very peaceful).

T:+0:40- Now I have an all out smile on my face, I'm laughing at everything, and honestly couldn't have been bothered by anything. I even forced myself to think of things that would normally bother me and my mind threw them aside as if to say, 'Why worry so much over nothing?'. Every muscle in my body was relaxed and I couldn't walk very well, but that was hilarious too (very drunken like walking, but not due to the alcohol).

This continued for about another half hour or so, and the effects gradually subsided over the next half hour after that. I'm still left with a very clear headed, positive train of thought.

Overall, I loved my first experience with Blue Lotus. I was able to truly relax and not have worries for the first time in quite a while. There were no adverse side effects, and with Blue lotus I don't think that there can be. I will try a higher dose though next time to try to fully explore the possibilities of Blue Lotus. This is truly a remarkable plant and it will serve as a useful ally for me in the future.
