I am a 22 year old Male. Currently a student. Previous drug experience: Weed, E, 2c-b, Mescaline, H.B. Woodrose, Ketamine, Dxm and various stimulants.
Recently I have been experiencing some rough times in my life. Not due to external circumstances, but due to destructive thought processes which have sent me spiralling out of control emotionally. After having experienced a rough few weeks of being severely depressed I was on the mend emotionally but looking for a little extra help to get me back on top of life.
I then happened across a trip report in which the user had taken two H.B Woodrose seeds before going to bed, had a good night’s sleep and reported an elevated mood the next day. The idea of taking a low dose before bed and falling asleep intrigued me.
The idea of taking a low dose before bed and falling asleep intrigued me.
The reason being that the value I have received from psychedelics has come from consciously working through my problems, the idea of being unconscious while the Woodrose was working its magic seemed counter-productive. I had however experienced one of my most profound trips on H.B Woodrose, it proved extremely effective in helping with my depression (something I directly attribute to my trip) and this latest bout is the first time in a long time I have experienced depression. So needless to say I believe quite strongly in the healing power of Woodrose.
Anyway I decided to go ahead with the two H.B Woodrose before bed. I had some seeds which had been in my room for a long while now due to the fact a Woodrose trip can be quite the test of will and I had not felt the need to take any until my most recent bout of depression. So at 10:30 I was feeling quite relaxed and ready for bed. I chewed up the two seeds and then lay in bed. I had a little trouble falling asleep (quite normal for me) so decided to listen to music. Had been half an hour and was quite convinced I was not experiencing any effects. However after listening to music for a while I began feeling a subtle hint of the beautiful warm euphoria experienced with higher doses of H.B Woodrose trips (quite convinced this was not placebo, I was very sceptical I would experience effects myself due to my two previous Woodrose trips being 10 seeds). I then drifted quite easily off to sleep.
My sleep was undisturbed and the next day I awoke feeling refreshed and energized. Quite a contrast to how I have been feeling the last few weeks. The rest of my day carried along in much the same positive manner. I felt as though I had improved clarity of thought in my lectures that day and life in general seemed much less of a burden than usual. Overall I consider the experiment a success and one which I may possibly repeat in the future.
