10.7 oz oral Syrian Rue (tea)


I recieved 3oz of syrian rue in the mail and weighed out 50grams. I then did the lemon juice and boiling water extraction with 2 lemons and 4 1/2 cups of water for 30min, and strained through a coffee filter. I managed to fill two 16oz bottles. I then set them on my shelf and took a nap. This was 8 a.m.

I woke up at 6:30 pm and ate a few chicken strips. I was going to drink 1 bottle to myself (glad I didn't). My friend called me at 9:30 and picked me up. We went to his house, a place that I basically live at so I felt very comfortable there. I was telling them about what syrian rue was like based on reports, they decided they wanted to try it to so we split 32oz evenly between 3 people.

10pm we each chug our cups in less than 10 sec.

10:15pm first signs, extreme body high

10:30pm tracers come on light at first and get stronger and stronger

10:45pm tracers are very strong now, whenever someone walked around I could see a trail of them behind them and the room would pulse (I won't go into anymore detail about the tracers but there were lots of them) one of my friends (lets say friend 1) starts to vomit outside.

11pm I feel the syrian rue starting to come up so I go outside and sit on the patio. (this is where I will remain for a hour) This is where the visuals started and by visuals I mean stuff manifesting in front of me not the slight distortions I'm used to. After a little I finally vomited. I would look at my vomit and it would be doing very weird stuff. I sat out for a long time. I vomited 3 times. (drinking water made vomiting much easier and I stopped throwing up fast)

Probably around 11:30 friend 1 has been vomiting this whole time and mumbling about stuff that he is seeing. Friend 2 makes his way outside and vomits then goes back inside. I look at the ground, and just cant help laying down. I lay here for about an hour just watching everything going on around me.

12am it felt as tho I had spent many days outside laying on the ground so I finally manage to get up and with much effort stumble inside. Walking is very hard. I look at the clock and see friend 2 laying on a couch. I lay on another couch next to him and close my eyes. I went to another world, many worlds in a dream like state but did not sleep. Friend 1 continued to vomit.

2:30am I open my eyes, it felt like I had been there for a very long time. I talked to friend 2 for 4 hours then he decided to go to bed. Friend 1 managed to stop puking and crawl inside and pass out on the floor. Tracers are still strong.

6:30 am friend 2 goes to bed still have tracers tho getting mild.

7:30 am tracers are pretty much gone and I finally go to bed.

11:30 am I wake up and feel like a brand new person.

All in all this was a very fun trip, lots of very vivid visuals something I have only had once before the only thing I can say after this is there is a difference between distortions and visions we all had not done any drugs for 4 days.

Very comfortable place to do it at too
