Nothing Happening
Blue Lotus & Wine
Citation:   volant69. "Nothing Happening: An Experience with Blue Lotus & Wine (exp76386)". Erowid.org. Jul 8, 2019. erowid.org/exp/76386

1 g oral Lotus/Lily - Nymphaea nouchali var caerulea (extract)
  350 ml oral Alcohol - Beer/Wine  
First of all, I never tried entheogens. In the far past (!) I have taken MJ although I never found it as intense as my fellow smokers. I recently started an exploration of new experiences.

Based on what I have read, Blue Lotus, for others has led to feelings of relaxation, euphoria and more. My experiences have been somewhat disappointing
My experiences have been somewhat disappointing
to say the least, i.e. no effect whatsoever. It leads me to wonder whether the experiences reported are either as a result of high expectations (placebo effect?) or a history of use of other substances leading to a build-up of substances in the body.

I obtained 1g of 25x standardized extract from a reputable supplier, having checked reviews and other's opinions.

6:00pm as suggested, dissolved 1g x25 standardised extract in 350ml of a nice red wine. If the extract was correct this should equate to 25g of flower in half-a-bottle of wine or 50g in a full bottle.

6:30pm on my 3rd glass of wine, no discernable effect other than what I would expect from two glasses of wine.

7:00pm wine gone. No more relaxed than I would expect to be after half-a-bottle of wine!

8:00pm definitely starting to sober up! No warm feeling (as reported by others); no heightened alertness; no more relaxed than I'd expect after half-a-bottle of wine (alone).

I am cautious about drawing any real conclusion from this. It was disappointing given what I had read from other reports (nothing happened). Perhaps a percentage of others have self-deluded and experienced exactly what they needed to and would have done with any appropriately smelling powder. Perhaps the extract wasn't all it was claimed.
