Curiosity aroused by Nymphaea caerulea (and Nelumbo nucifera), decided to purchase some... Purchased 100g dried flowers £14 and 15g 10x extract £8.
Smoking the flowers was subtle and barely noticeable, in joints and bongs.
Encapsulating flowers was a pain in the arse despite reducing the material to near dust. Bombed 18g in capsules: quite a few! Drinking beer before during and after and smoking squidgy black and hi-grade 'sage' (pot strain, not salvia) : BEST way to describe the experience was like being on a small dose of benzodiazepenes without the cognitive retardation. I imagine I might have pulled a whitie without the lotus.
Encapsulated a bit over 3g of '10x' extract and drank beer and some ginger wine (with added ginger root extracted for punch), I feel a little cold like I'm 'coming up' and after an hour, whilst concomittantly smokin MJ, I'm very chilled; don't really wanna have to deal with housemates, but I do and it's not that big a deal.
The taste of the lotus is quite like 'parma violets' (sweets available in the UK), very floral and perfume like; I find it pretty difficult to swallow the vodka extraction I made without salivating like a mofo, despite pot-aid. :-(
Not too altering. Even the extracts aren't that overwhelming.
