Erowid Guestbook Comments and Suggestions
March and June 1997

The only reason I am putting this up is to get rid of a stupid message about mushrooms inducing bad trips at the bottom of the text.If this goes up you won`t be able to read it anyway! I never have bad trips and you wont either everything happens because you want it to,maybe what you think is bad is really good. You can lose a lot of hang ups in one messy night and not have to live 3 years doing something that makes you unhappy.Anyway hopefully the message is out shrooms are the bollox (for u yanks they kick ass).Free natural and incidentally very very old get them!

Erowid Note: Happily, our guestbook entries don't scroll off the list. We at Erowid are dedicated to providing a forum for all information about entheogens and spirituality...not just those that are pleasant. :)
It's about time somebody said thank you to Mr. Albert Hofmann.
P.S. anybody fingerdabbed a nice piece of quadsep? Comments, thoughts post it here. We're talking 10000 mics at least!

Anybody interested in HARMALINE should realise that it is a MAOI inhibitor and therefore should be studied carefully for possible drug interactions.Syrian rue definitely contains this so read carefully.Use your search engine to find out more (I recommend research this area thoroughly.There are complete listings for all the foodstuffs and chemicals to avoid . PHALARIS AQ! ITALIAN STRAIN Isn`t anybody interested in 2CB .It`s my personal favourite.., like for example mescaline * 50 potency.I`ve made extensive exhaustive research into this and I never ever feel bad regardless of dosage levels and I`m talking HEROIC doses.-- THANKYOU SASHA SHULGIN YOUR COMMITMENT TO HUMANITY IS INTENSE THIS IS THE EDUCATOR FACILLITATOR FOR ALL--.

My sister was working in the only UK establishment to hold a license to synthesise MDMA.Her work involved administering the drug to laboratory animals i.e. rats etc... Before they experimented in pursuit of nonsensical data to reference humans to rats they used a combination of ketamine and valium intravenously to aneasthetise and relax the animals. Her studies into the reasons Ketamine was not suitable for humans proved extremely edifying to me... Most patients who receive the drug KHCl psychosomatically produce the symptoms of the disease which hospitalized them in the first place. I.E. something within the patient wants to suffer surgery and self mutilation to repeat the experience medically diagnosed as an "emergence reaction". KHCl being one of the safest anaesthetics is not used more due to these effects.... I personally undertook several experiments into this realm in conjunction with lysergide and also MDMA. The results are extremely inconclusive and subjective in the extreme.

After a period of 1 month of injecting between 500 to 1000+mg subcutaneously every day I had an extremely intense experience. The date was 25 december,an interesting coincidence-synchronicity-, I cannot state the dosage or combination of chemicals,location, psychological state of mind that empowered this "hallucination" or if you prefer "altered state of consciousness" To be brief I was rocketed through most of my belief systems in approxiamately a nanosecond.I experienced a way to communicate I can only describe as all I am flooding through to an entity (HERE IS WHERE IT GETS INTERESTING)that showed me how to do it. The entity impressed upon me to remember its appearance especially the number of eyes.... five in total that I perceived. I thought at this point that I had died on the earthly plane and my consciousness was transferring to a different format. The conversation (not in words) was extemely personal and would be misconstrued by others not in a similar psychological, emotional and environmental state.

I can only say it was guided by some sort of love beyond my ability to describe. This is an extemely annotated description of just one day on this unbelievable psychedelic ..... My reason to send this is the same as yours in creating this website. Information can push the limits of human experience into a higher and more creative form if we will. Aum Love Greetings Ross anonymity essential due to restrictive victorian laws in the country my sister works in.

Have you ever considered combinations including DMT+lsd+KHCl.... I personally recommend this only to extremely dedicated searchers..... In my personal experiences only 3 of my friends have underwent this crashcourse to infinity . . . . . . . ......... My personal recommendations are as follows
lsd quadsep preferably if you the range 250-1000 mcg,
KHCl 50-100mg subcutaneous injection
DMT depending on source synthetic or organic 30-50mg smoked.....
procedure 1 empty your mind as far as its possible 2 ingest lsd 3 wait until you feel you approach peak 5mins-3hrs subjective as it gets 4 inject ketamine 5 relax in a comfortable position horizontal on a bed is good 6 meditate (if you like ) calm yourself wait for the KHCl onset 7 get a friend to help with this as khcl induces loss of motor control smoke the DMT 8 relax relax relax and watch touch talk to ?????? everybody that has done this that I know has come out and said .........................unfuckingbelievable give me more now . . . Its ruthless but it adds quite a significant twist to the DMT experience .The only other comment I can add is my friends personal vision I.E. everybody should do this and do it now ................ this is no NDE this is a life love live experience ...apologies to those who find this incompatible with their experience I reiterate this is not for people scared of themselves or easily prone to psychosis neurosis etc......(I think ???????)

I may be in the wrong place to say this but I do not understand why people are taking this harmful drug Gbh. Back in 1992-1995 I too did a lot of extacy at raves and have no regrets about it but what is GHB? I have heard so many stories about people dieing at clubs while on this some of my friends have seen 4 people die right in front of thier eyes. Then last weekend I went to one of my favorite clubs in S.F suddenly this guy came up to the dj stand and started tripping out at first I thought he must be really drunk he was falling all over the place drolling losing all control of his arms legs ect. They sat him down but he kept getting up at one time I thought he became one with a wall finally he past out and the bouncers had to drag him away (he was a very large man) My question is why would you want to take a drug that can mess you up so much. I have had taken 5 hits of E one night dont ask why just being stupied and the effects were not fun! It scares to to see these kids taking this drug don't they know if taken wrong it can kill you. Stick with E atleast if you take 5 hits you wont die.

I am looking for information on street drugs and the apparent resurgent use of certain drugs in adolescence I am naive about GHB. I have read articles that compare GHB to Rohypnol but am unable to get specfic info on GHB. Saying that it is a naturally appearing metabolite does not mean its safe - everything is dosage dependent - water is necessary for life and comprises almost 90% of the human body but you can still drown in it. I don't want rhetoric or fringe BS from the left or the right - Whats up with GHB?

Excellent! For edification of club trippers, I (and many friends) have had great experiences beginning the evening with 3ml (1/2 vial) of GHB, followed in 1 hr. by 1 hit of MDMA ecstasy, sustained 1-2 hrs. later by an occasional K "bump" (nasal inhalation size of a pea). I refer to this affectionately as "alphabet soup" (X,K, & G). Be careful, though, not to continue the G ingestion, as it will likely end up in deep sleep or a scary ride to the ER!!!

Please everyone be careful. I have seen GHB cause near Respiratory Arrest in several people. They have been brought into ER and put on life support for several hours. If this had not been done, they probably would have died. Thanks for listening.

Without psychedelics the internet wouldn't exist. DMT could bring quantum leaps in human evolution. Alcohol is the spirit killer that was given to shamanic peoples to try to end growth and insight. It is a direct cause of violence and destruction in all societies. Thank you for all your great info...perhaps it can be used to dispel some of the fear that is inundating pop culture. It's time for us to get rid of some of the furniture, clean-up the cobwebs and sit out under the collective tree of life and listen to the birds.

At the Near-Death Experience site at, I've devoted a page to Ketamine and how it may induce NDEs. I've also requested that discussion of this topic be directed to the alt.consciousness.near-death-exp and alt.drugs newsgroups, and started a thread in those newsgroups for that purpose. The relevant researchers and web page masters have also been included in my email broadcast so that they may join in the discussion. Also, please email me at scottr@address_removed if you know more about Ketamine and if or how it relates to near-death experiences, and if there are any changes or additions I need to make to the NDE Ketamine page.

Erowid Note: We are extremely interested in information about verifiable deaths or serious illnesses caused by GHB (or any psychoactive we cover). However, without providing contact information, or any verifying details (name, city, coroner, media, or details of the situation) there is every reason to believe that this could be intentional misinformation. If anyone knows anything about this situation...please contact us at Erowid with details. In case it wasn't made abundantly clear from our GHB Vaults...GHB is NOT without risks. Be extremely careful expecially if experimenting with grey or black market products.
Keep up the good work!! people need to understand more about the history and other information on the substance

A good idea for your site would be to have pictures of the mushrooms and their names so that we can identify what we are eating. Otherwise a very good site, well done!

I found a source of tryptamine on the internet. I hope that the big brother anal retentive government forces don't try to limit our ability to see what is available to buy on the internet. Its called the Research Center of Santa Barbara. It is linked to The Psychoactives Archive.

Info on bad trips. I had a horrible experience on cubenis (2.5 grams). I was having shock waves, dying, brain mumurs, talking to somebody (didn't know who), wanted paramedics to come, layed in bed for hours, feeling lost and stuck for hours, an alien was manipulating me, dying again, and then 5 hours later after some sex I came back. During the sex, I started to chit chat as thought we were drinking cappocino. Then the alien tried to get me again. Had suicidal and homicidal thoughts. Thought I was going to be stuck there forever. It sucked,

P.S. I have done shrooms 7 times and never had so bad of an experience. WHY?

Even tough it is illegal mostly everywhere, a "backdoor" or goup that is established to aid in helping users locate it. I, myself, have used "G" (ghb) a few times. I was reluctant at first, however the ultimate relaxation and euphoria I experienced is uncomparable to anything else. (Except maybe a 'UFO' when you're rolling.) Anyway, education is always the key to acceptance. Look at cigarettes, their addiction, effect on non-users, cancers cigarettes have caused, etc. I used to be as closed minded as most of these politians, fortunately I decided on my own, to gain first-hand knowledge. I am still trying to locate some, the popularity is far exceeeding the demand. If you drink, then you're basically doing the same "wear and tear" on your body if you were experiencing GHB.

I was reading through some of your information on Ketamine, and I would just like everyone out there in cyberspace to know just how dangerous a drug this is. I had a very, very close call only a few nights ago. I spent the night in the ICU of the closest hospital, and I am very, very lucky that I'm alive right now. I just think that anyone who takes Special K should have fair warning that they may not be as fortunate as I was.

I first encountered your site when looking for information about psilocybin. The day before, a close friend and I had the most profound and revealing experience of our lives, and I was curious to know what the shrooms had to do with it. Anyway, I am truly grateful to people like you who are out to educate and, presenting all of us with the valuable opportunity to make informed decisions for ourselves. I am very pleased to know that there are others who believe in personal freedoms, and do not condemn the personal choices of others so long as they are informed.

Just wanted to say hello, friends, and sorry that it's taken me so long to stop by. Any chance that links to some of the better gaming sites might be useful? Not games themselves, but sites about games if they exist. I suspect that there may be a large overlap between educated gamers and the "typical" visitor to the Vaults. At any rate, everything looks great and I'll spend more time here this summer for sure.

To anyone that knows and is nice enough to help me out: 1) Is it legal for me to order cyanescens or azurascens from Europe? (I live in Illinois) If I can, can I grow one or both of them inside or on a PF- type substrate? 2) Do you reccomend Tryptamine HCL in the substrate? Is it legal to get? Where would I go about getting it? 3) Have you heard of Harmine or Harmamine in some root or flower called Syrian Rue? If you have, what do you know about its use in relation to psilocybin? Do you reccomend it? If you can answer any of this for me, I would be sublimely happy and you can send mail to me at fript@address_removed>

need to know more about i.v.ketelar doses and affects.i always bang mainline b/c i like the speedy warp of reality. i.v. ketamine works very very fast, so either get somebody else to hit you or pumpfast and make sure you're lying down (most dangerous thing about ketamine is the injuries sustained when falling!!trust me).you say in the text that diazapam no good for pre-med for k . i found low doses of val v. nice for a ketamine trip and there is no working synergism b/w them ,so resp. depression is minimal. NB find out about telamine (?) supposed to be 3x more strong than k as an anaesthetic agent.Oh and please add info on the extreme analgesia experienced on k. I've seen some numb and dumb people do some questionable things!thanx for letting me get this shit off my chest. i was relieved to have found your page. Please also tell people that on a trp even though your sensorium is intact, you are out cold. some people ive banged didn't quite understand that and freaked later.can you add something about barbituates too please.i nearly died the other night and it would be nice for others to learn from my mistake.IV barb's take about 5min to effect so when the box says "dose to effect" do it v. v. v. slooowly!and, the doses for surgical anaeth. is allot diff than doses to get off on it.I took 10 ml of phenobarbital , thougth that i didn't get enough,sat in my bean bag and groggly woke bout 5-6hrs later covered in vomit and took a good 30hrs to baseline.NB phenobarbital is the same shit in lethabarb(used for euthanaisia )and causes heavy extra-vascular necrosis(i am now 3 veins short) . a good dose is 50-75 units to get down(like Bout 6 valium). Please also warn people some pharm. preparations of ketamine come with "rompun" which will act as a v. good muscle relaxant and kill you of cardiac arrest v. quickly.Antidote---atropine iv( often good to use this as a pre med for many anaesthetic prceedures you wish to dabble with. fentanyl is also v. good . exactly the same as smak with a hlf life of bout 1.5hrs.Is said to be 300x potant than morphine but i took 4ml so obviously its highly diluted.( 9 on yhe yummy scale of drugs).synthatic narcotics are beautiful things,guys. but not produced commertialy (all reasearch is chemical warfare based now.Why do you think the yanks want to ban chem bombs? Because they know they have THE best ones-induction times of less than 30sec before resp failure and death1)on that note , i also highly recc. pethidine -it was like every cell in my body was vibrating.any way thax for the drug chat , talk to you again soon

I especially relate to the spiritual core of LSD experience as a realm beyond language. But I did my darndest to show its effect through a less than articulate narrator. If you like, you can read a sample from my book, OFF TO A BAD START: Chicken Soup for the Sold. The sample deals with this subject. Let me know what you think.

Freedom to ? I believe most of what you are saying is true. on the other hand, I was born to a family that is addicted to drugs that harm more than help. Throughout my life I have watched as my father brought these things into my life, not forcing them on me, but showing me that it was ok to do drugs. I learned not to trust anyone in fear that they might be a "nark" or a cop. Then it finaly happened, I became addicted to controlled substances. I loved the feeling I got off of Meth,Coke,or Acid. It was such a high that I started to subject my own wife and kids to this kind of treatment, Coming down off of Meth could of easily caused my Irish temper to hurt someone I love very much. Then I realized what I was doing was the same as my father, showing my kids that it was alright to indulge in killers of self-esteam,self worth,and morals. Now I just try to keep these things away from my family. I don't let my kids see their grandparents because everytime I go over there they are either high or coming down and I just dont trust them any more. You are right about the prisons being full of people who need help. If half the people in jail for bullshit crimes like selling pot were out, do you think they would be responcible enough to care about their kids,and families to keep them from smoking the shit. sorry I am just kind of emotional about certain things when it comes to freeing people that are selling drugs to fatherless kids who dont know the difference in killer drugs as opposed to safe ones. Anyway thanks for letting me get this of my chest. Smokeabowl with a friend,not a kid.

Has anybody got any information about mushrooms in Asia, specifically Hong Kong. I collected yesterday two types that both grew in cow dung. The first were small caps, similarin shape to the Liberty caps I know from Europe though larger. They were bell shaped, brown though some were lighter in colour, grouped and from 2-6cm high. The stem was thin and woody. The other was larger still at 6-8cm, flatter and whiter with a golden centre to its cap. The stem was white and 'tubular'. I have had a very good night out on the what I think is the one I first described. Doubts have arisen with the conflicting info I have recieved from friends about the exact shape, type, potency, and danger of these mushrooms. I am sure I have picked the correct type, but am curious to know if I am right without getting sick in the process. If anybody can point me in the correct direction, then please help me out.

All Praise!!!! I loved the article of declaring our independence again. It really kinda bugged me out too because I just woke up this morning and had that same phrase in my head;"life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". If there was only some way to get that message across the people who run this country. I think we should start pressuring the president himself. After all, everyone knows he inhaled it. What the hell's the sense in smoking it if you're not going to get the whole effect.

I believe that the spirit inside of us is hidden very deep. Most people can never really see the truth about the world. Shrooms are just one natural way to find out who you are and what it means to be alive. I once read something that changed my views on the subject. "Trip for living, don't live for tripping."

Hi, I am a student at Loyola University Chicago. I am doing a Pharmacology paper on the effects of heroin. I would just like to thank you for the valuable information and links that you have provided. Again, thank you for making your knowledge so accessible.

I would like to share my experience with ghb. Whilst at a desert party in southern California I had a very bizzare time with g.I found that after consuming this stuff out of a water bottle and drinking beer (very bad combo) I next found myself waking up in the Joshua tree hospital with all kinds of shit plugged into various parts of my body. It was a very nasty experience . the moral to the story: dont drink alcohol while drinking ghb try crystal instead!

Erowid Note: We at Erowid realize it's inevitable that some people will have this reaction to our site. But we believe that many of the problems associated with the use of these substances are caused by irresponsible use and a lack of accurate information (both pro and con). By providing a source of accurate information and an atmosphere of responsible use, we hope to cultivate healthier behavior and a more compassionate view of those who choose to use entheogens.
I too saw the CNN report last night. Hence my visit here. I imagine that your site will be taking a few more hits :P now. Anyway, asprin kills people every year. People die because they are allergic to nutra-sweet. This does not make them 'evil'. Moderation is the key to everything. I really enjoyed your site, the pages were very well planned out and very professional in nature. Wave...

Did everyone see that episode of "Impact" on CNN about GHB? In case you missed it, it was your average war-on-drugs "GHB will KILL YOU DEAD" type of deal, where they had a couple of stories about how GHB (supposedly) caused the death of an all American youth, and calling for an immediate ban of it. However, when they showed that the recipe for GHB can be found on the Internet, they showed the Erowid GHB page. Hopefully, people will check it out and read some actual facts on GHB, but it's probably going to lead to more "The Internet is EVIL!!!" ranting. What I want to know is, since cars cause a hell of a lot more deaths than any drug, why don't we ever see CNN specials calling for the banning of cars? Oops.. I'm rambling again. No, I'm not high. :)

Did you know out here in Southern Califoria "Special k" is everywhere---At any Rave that is. From power to pill, it generally cost about $20 bucks, and has been sold as pure "ecstasy" Known as 'peace sign';but is really special k. Also,depending on the color of the pill, it can even have mescaline added. So, if your going to play be very careful and don't fall into the "K--hole"---overdose. peace

I think the experience in this section is one of many that have been felt before, (Adverse affects of marijuana) and can or do continue to happen when smoking, (to me any way!} But after years of smoking they can be controlled and eventually changed.

Would just like to say that psychadelic drugs are by far the greatest drugs to bless the earth and to tell all of my fellow trippers and blazers to stay away from the alcohol, that what makes you crazy! Why do you think the goverment lets it be legal? because they know the masses will do it if it is advertised enough. and that ignorance causes predjudice (i.e. 'pot is bad' the biggest sham!!!)But alcohol also kills amny brain cells, more than many mind drugs, they just enhance your mind. Of course overuse and abuse of anything can beharmful, so I believe that you should monitor and keep control while using. Comments,Arguements,Questions??? mail me! and support legalization!!

So far only Praise! I absolutely added this site to my bookmarks. For me the best in it's "sort". between "" "", because its about life, God itself!) To much to see at once. But for sure this will not be the last time. Now I am going to prepare myself to do a Santo Daime Work here in Holland. If you have one, please put me on your mailing list. Love, Light and Harmony

I believe your info that it is illegal to prescribe GHB is incorrect. Physicians may prescribe and prescriptions may be filled - usually at a compounding pharmacy (except possibly in Georgia). Routine answers given by the FDA are, I have found, not reliable, but that only becomes clear when one asks for the printed legal references supporting claims about this topic.

Great sight , very clear. A little lightweight on the explanations. More specifics needed about the uniquness of K
I have taken about 4000 journeys with every dose from 10 to 500. the most helpful health tip I have is amino acids, preferabley red meat after imbibing. there is a tolerance. Once you learn to navigate you can affect cchanges in you body chemistry to correct physical emotional or mental impairments. It is a profound hypnotic so you can program yourself to releive physical symptoms and you body will carry out the commands. If you cahnge your modis operendi at that time the condition remains healed permanantly.

I really enjoyed reading all your pages about mushrooms. I not really experienced in this field, so I learned a lot. One thing I would like you help me on though, is bad trips. The past two times I 've triped on mushrooms, it turned out to be a bad trip. I don't know why? Everything is going great, and then all of the sudden everything goes downhill! I can't feel my body, I feel really uncomfortable, and TIME...time does not move!
