Wish There Was a Better Way

10 - 20 g oral Cloves (dried)
[Erowid Note: The dose described in this report is very high, potentially beyond Erowid's 'heavy' range, and could pose serious health risks or result in unwanted, extreme effects. Sometimes extremely high doses reported are errors rather than actual doses used.]
One random day at my grandmothers, after a long and depressing day. I needed a way to relax. At first I was planning on experimenting solely with nutmeg, but I found two 35 gram containers of whole cloves. In my memory, I remembered reading something online pertaining to them. Yet there was nothing definite that truly explained what the sensation was like. SO I said w/e fudge it... I opened the container and started to chew. Sorry if my grammar is incorrect, I am currently peaking. :S

Within the first 5 minutes:

I was feeling truly disgusted... Possibly the worst tasting substance, and I have had many other things in my time.

Had around 2-5 grams... wasn't feeling any different. I just felt sick.

I really need a breather. 1 minute break.

10 minutes past:

I start to munch again, my tongue and pretty much everything in my mouth becomes numb after a few more bites.

I was in shock, it felt oddly satisfying. For some reason I wanted more. So I started to grab massive handfuls of the repulsive substance and shoved it into my mouth. ~10 grams worth. I start to get the warm itchy feeling, I was tripping. Seriously I was high. My laptop screen started to become blurry and at first I wasn't aware of how high I was until I started to walk. Which ended with me saying nvm I need to sit.

30 minutes past:

Right now I feel completely inebriated, but I feel so comfortable at the same time. Such a nice combination with peanut butter crackers and velvet acid christ. This feels like I am dilaudid almost. Very similar. lol I want more. oh now I am seeing double. My font looks awesome. MUAHAAHAHA that is almost eligible.

Also I noticed that my depth perception has been completely removed. eating more.


I feel like if I took this at the beach it would be amazing. I just want to fly away or float. There would be no way I could swim without puking though.

I really want to try this with alcohol, I don't feel like moving. Surprisingly though I do not feel tired or lethargic whatsoever.

45 minutes pass:

I feel pretty dizzy right about now, and I am cheeking really badly. I just want to laugh. Maybe its just because I am doing something really stupid to feel something, but honestly this was a pretty effective way to feel VERY relaxed. I would compare it to oxycodone or dilaudid, obviously not quite to the same degree. With enough of this stuff, I feel like anything is possible at this point.

Oh another quick thingy, I feel completely animated. My hands or maybe fingers remind of monsters and I can't stop smiling over it.

I love it. I feel cartoonlike. Almost as if I am on DXM. Only if I felt really tiny. Then this would be awesome.

I also noticed that my memory is going to hell, and everything is slowing down... I need to get off.

There is obviously an effect from this substance. I just wish there was a better way to get the effect.
