Wow, what a web site, i flippin' love it, it tells you everything you need to know, about everything you need to know about all the topics that aren't disscussed in other places. I really look to this website for research, for my self to be informed. I looked at the dxm vault, to know what to expect, ect. I am glad i found this web site. P.S Know your body, know your mind, know your substance, know your source. I love that quote,
I saw in another site, don't remember which one, but it said that taking dxm with prozac will make it better, and let you trip easier, hallucinate, ect. I don't know if its true, but i was scared to try it, so i thought i'd ask.

Anyone who have used psychoactive substances and NOT been to an outdoors-kickass-trance-party have missed one of the sweetest, most invigorating experiences there is to have on this globe. If you HAVE to take hallucinogenics in other contexts pleeeeaaase have Reefer Decree, Hux Flux, Miraculix, Psysex, Intact Instinct, Infected Mushroom or any other Psyhcoactive Guides playing on a soundsystem in your vicinity!!! I firmly do believe that recognition of rythm is what separates us from the other (read: most other) spíeces on our planet. Drumtravelling has taken another step in the evolution of man. This evolution is truly the wave of the 2nd FlowerPower-movement and you can't see the face of god lest you ride the crest. May father Sun hit you with his beams - right in the face :) /Nim Boit

I just wanted to stop by and praise you for your wonderfully informative site. i think it's terrific that you not only include the negative aspects of using certain substances, but also the positive. keep up the good work. and like i always say, if you're going to use any illegal substances, always be well-educated.
i think you've covered all the bases.

These are some of the most intriguing pages on the web. I am deeply moved by the honesty and integrity which you show here and the brave stance you've taken in the battle to safeguard the First Ammendment. The information here is truly priceless-- it's like having a neuralchemical library at my finger-tips!
I've looked in your DMT information and I haven't seen any mention of Accacia (some varieties of which do produce DMT) as an important aspect of the Masonic Rite of Master Mason. I have wondered, after reading much McKenna, if whether or not it was via the aid of DMT that the speech centers of the brain (the "Master's Word") were first activated in primitive man. While there is no evidence to truly support this, it's nice to think that all those old men in their tuxedos and aprons, bearing swords and trowels, swapping grips and words in low whispers [MABN], are really ignorantly performing ancient pagan rites centered on hallucinogen-based religion.

I personally would like to take the time to say thank you to those who were involved in makeing this site. I have just recently experienced allot of difficulty with my girlfriend do to a date rape situation that ALMOST happened. She was in Panama City, Florida do to a work situation. She happened to meet a few college girls by the pool at the hotel she was staying at and they had bugged her to go with them all week to go party. Well, this past friday she broke down and decided to go out with them since her business in the town was concluded and she had the time to actually go out and celebrate the week. (while she was gone I was stuck at home) She went out with the girls and they went to a new bar that had opened and started to party. Some how someone got ahold of my girlfriend and one of the college girls glasses and put some "scoop" GHB into their drinks. The two knew something had been put in their drinks because the girl that was with her that had the drug slipped into her drink only had 1 winecooler, and my girlfriend doesnt like drinking so she had a coke. Needless to say the drug took its effect and the girls decided to go out on the beach (not knowing what was actually going on) and some guys confronted the group of ladies. My girlfriend and the other girl were reacting strange and the others knew it so one went for help and water while the others stayed with them and talked to the so called "gentlemen" while the two girls were sitting next to eachother. Long story short neither of the two were raped while the effects of the drug were in effect. However the police were involved, especially do to the fact that 3 other ladies that were in the bar had definately been drugged as well. Today after my girlfriend had woken up from the experience (after being brought back to the hotel) she woke up with allot of nausia (sp) and eventually she started vomiting almost constantly. Knowing that there was a drug involved i was determined to find out the facts on the drug that the police said was used, (they determined the precise drug because of other cases that had happened in the town recently) so I proceeded to research the drug and happened upon this site. At this time I want to thank these fine people that have done a definate thorough job at gathering their information. Right now my girlfriend is still sick but im hoping that soon she will be coming out of that. I am just happy that there is a source like this on the net to where people can go and find out about certain drugs and their effects on the human anatomy. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH. shhh dont anyone tell my girlfriend but I intend on marrying her. I dont know what I would do without her. sorry that this has been such a long comment...lol but I wanted to share my story about this "date rape drug" GHB. Hopefully if more stories like this surface and people read them they will be more aware of the people they are around and keep their drinks by their sides at all time. I was lucky in the fact that my girlfriend wasnt raped, she didnt let herself get seperated from the girls that she had met and if I could talk to those girls I would thank them from the bottom of my heart for keeping the love of my life safe. Again....thank you to the people involved in making the site, congratulations on such a great source of information. If there is a more public way of making things like this more known I would like to know. Thank you. Mort

I finally got it after all this time on probation i have solved the pot problem.i have recently used a product (pretty inexpensive $18)that will get thc out of the urine.now the fact form led me to this saying fiber is a key.not additive fiber.this product has everything thats in most teas it comes with 240 pills.it is called daytime/nitetime daily cleanse.33 herbs and24 differnt fiber things in the formula.its been 2 days and i passed im not so sure about a lab test id give that 6-10 days if possible.it costs about 18.00 and i get it from my local genovise drug store.its made by natures bounty bohemia ny 11716.god after all the money i spent on those dam flushes that barly worked i could kill . that is why im sharing this with you all.does not or should i say hasnt been tested on other drugs.i know coke still takes a good 6 - 7 days anyway.but , i think its mainly because of the thc attaching to the fiber . you will be constapated if your using max dose.12 in the mornig 12 at night.but its also a great dialy cleanse up untill you need to get ready for the test.spread the word!

refining the extraction techniques for Morning glory's LSA or Canary reed grass' DMT. Can be used with most any allkaloid producing plants.

On the LSA extraction methods from morning glory, i have found that doing a non-polar extraction first, which in theory removes the poisons and resins that are non polar, is unnessesary to do at this time. The reason is that it leaves small amounts of residues that are painlfully scrupules to remove. i believe a better result producing technique exsists, it is as simple as doing the non-polar(poison extraction) at a later step. this is less messy and makes for removing the immiseracble layers more complete, with no residues left behind, and all the easier!

For me step 1: begins with obtaining the biomass to be extracted.

step 2: powder the material (or liquify, as with phalarus, canary reed grass).

step 3: after drying as much as possible, combine with polar (ethanol,methanol) solution. A dilute hydrochloric acid mixture can be used as well at this point; although this depends on how pure you want your substance; and whethere or not you plan on making crystals out of the material.

hydrochloric acid on the other hand is an extremely good method at extracting allkaloids from a bio-mass. so if you use hydrochloric acid you can combine it with the polar alcohol solution or use it alone.In the past i have found that acidifing to PH to less than 3 works rather nice. Either or both methods is utilized when the extraction calls for crystal purification. As with phalarus, (canary reed grass; contains DMT) an initial step: (dramatically increases DMT yield.

Wet the grass blades, then strain off excess water. Freeze this for a couple hours (overnight if possible). This ruptures most of the cell walls in the grass. Then juice it up with a juicer, a blender? Remember that any water you add will have to be evaporated off eventually, thus lagging your process). So, with the grass juiced, strain the organic bio lumps of grass out. save these to soak with polar solution (either water, ethanol, hydrochloric acid(muiatic acid)). after exshausting the mass throw it away and combine all the liquids obtained.

I beleive i left the lsa extraction at this point at well. the reason is, because from here in the methods are exactly (can be modified) the same. Remember, there is not a need to acidify unless the purpose is to use the two solvent crystalization method.

SO this is the point where you do a non-polar (poison) extraction. combine your polar solution (contains alkalloids) with a non-polar (naptha, petroleum ether) in a big jar. shake the crap out of it. the longer you shake the more you expose all the molocules. if your with a friend make him shake too, im talking about shaking for an hour or two or three. after that you should have two layers. remove the top, solvent layer and dicard. boof! you did it most of the poisons have been removed. Also that step can be used with all most all allkaloid containig plants.

from there, if crystalization is sought the next step is to bassify the acid aquaus solution. this is done by adding a base such as NaOh (sodium hydroxide), marketed under red devil lye drain cleaner (strange isnt it?)

white swirls of percipiate will form then redesolve, this salts out the alkaloids leaving several layers of unwanted materal.

from here the next step is to add non-polar sovent this extracts the now non-polar alkaloids into free-base. the solvent is collected, evaporated and crystalized. avoid emulsion (look up.

Key point: do not bassify beyond 8.5 or 9. this will make your product uninjestable (maybe smokable but i doubt it) because it will be to basic..

Erowid, please forgive me as I must waste only one more entry on this matter. Tyler...I got three of their (Shamans Garden) websites terminated. They couldn't get the last one terminated, because it wasn't registered under Dreamhost...but I'm not worried about it...it was actually the only site of theirs not ripping people off, it was just a spiritual praise of Salvia D. So we can all be at peace that at least all of the chain scam sites have been terminated (unless they all of a sudden decide to sell stuff through that last one). So finally, we can say we got something done and prevented further incidents. As for the owner of the company...I don't know what we can expect. Probably nothing. But some action has been taken...I'm happy for that much. Erowid, please forgive me for this post. Feel free to remove it and put the appropriate information next to "Shamans Garden" vendor link. |||||| Hey Stone, go to the links page: "JLF Poisonous..." I had the same problem with trying to find stores in general...but once I finally found the "Vendors" link in the "Community" section, I was fine and found links for EVERYTHING anyone could want...well almost. Everyone...please be careful of potential Shamans Garden's type businesses though. |||||| On separate notes: I think everyone should check out those 'Magic Eye' optical illusion book series. I hadn't seen one in a while...but I saw one a week or so ago, and it gave me such a refreshed outlook of reality...that I could look 'through' and into a book, so to speak. I've never even done any drugs in my life yet or anything (I have an intense meditation part of me...don't even think I'd need them really)...and those books gave me a serious perception alteration...so I'm sure some of you active drug activists/spiritualists would get huge insights out of something like that (a 3D optical illusion kids book ironically). Windows Media Player 6/7 and Real Player Basic 8 have pretty insightful visuals as well...I personally get a good sense of the spiritual matrix/spiral when I see those things with some good music. That's all from me for now.

This is the theird time Iīm in here and printing some positiv feelings, only this evening, but the mix of Peter Staffords"Psychedelics Encyclopedia" & the Erowid-Site in full bloom, in fact You have all relevant info before your eyes. My biggest *hobby* infact and I like to have non-biased (in the Law-meaning I mean) before my eyes.

Erowid is for me , a perfect mix between, like floating multimedia, Peter Staffords "Psychedelic Encyclopedia", a wounderful, positive book to use when Iīm interested in some facts. When the PC warms up so that Erowid enters on the screen have I done a big research in 'Staffords' *smile* Beautiful B O O K. Then I have my psychedelic experience, the mix between the B O O K & my trippy computerscreen blends in a total new perception of 'learning' aspects of what is such a big Hobby in my life.

Must say that iīve never missed anything of real importance as long as Erowid are still the World Best Site # 1 *(`.ī)*,

I wrote Mar 24 about facing possible charges due to a pos drug test while in the Navy reserves. Thanks to Erowid, massive research, the Navy drug lab admitting a tea I was drinking (mate de coca) could cause a pos p-test, and a number of other little parts that added up, I'm still in the reserves. Thanks a million. Also, FYI, if you're facing a drug test and YOU might have dabbled in a little cocaine, check out what a website has to say about the benefits of saunas on the excretion of cocaine and it's metabolites from your system. The last sentence sums it all up. The address is: http://www.stopaddiction.com/narconon_research_cocaine.html. Thanks again. navyman

During the past 2 months, the ethnobotanical supplier Shaman's Garden, has failed to ship the orders of a number of customers. After failing to refund customer's money and failing to respond to email or telephone complaints...Shaman's Garden's web hosting company was notified of the problem. The web hosting company tried to contact a representative, but failed, so the ethnobotanical supplier's web site was shut down on June 14th, 2001.

Praise Be To The Valiant Crusader
Lo, you valiant crusaders standing that fell watch
Guarding that sacred line you draw there in the dust
You magnanimous Keepers of that pale light
Of what you say is wrong, and what you deem is right
"Protect us from ourselves", we cry into the empty night
"Load those blessed shelves of law, and fight that endless fight",
"Lo, wage that war of justifications and draw us from our plight",
"We the children of civilizations, and society at it's height",
"For we cannot choose for ourselves, and we stumble before our very own sight",
"For the darkness stalks us nigh, and you are the only light."

Yes, yes, dear Watchers don't let us cross that line
Teach us, teach us, teach us what is divine
Keep us, keep us, from that shimmering shrine
Where the pagan's wild eyes glow in the dark
All filled with visions unholy and stark
Where many armed elephants a-sparkle and bedight
With glimmering jewels that throw an evil light
Inspire men to think cows sacred and side the road in their wake
Fill us now with enough hatred to strike down heathens for their own sake

(And time rolled inexorably on
Through millennia to millennium
And into ashes went the Inquisition
And to this day it awakens in a dead sleep
Moving our hearts from a dirge deep)

Lo, you valiant crusaders, keep us from our folly
For we cannot tell, damnation from a lolly
And ‘tis sure that if we dared taste of that forbidden brew
We'd claim a thousand absurdities that we were born anew
We'd have fantastic visions and the Devil would run us through
And we'd claim that we saw God and we'd even claim it true
No, dare we not taste of the one that doth stain blue

So Lo, you valiant crusaders, tell us now which pill
You would have us take, that we may presently kill
The very pain of existing, in your reality still
Hook us up to your machine, and post us later the bill

But the main reason I am writing is becauseI would like more info on how to tell the difference between the male and female cannibas plants, if anyone could email me info or anything at all, that would be great! thanx trikerzz

Erowid,

I am a professional Paramedic, a true "Street Doc" with expertise and experience in critical care. Truth be told, I do not do drugs (other than the very occasional drink of alcohol and caffeine...) nor have I in over 15 years. I do however frequently encounter many people who do. It was research into some of the "Newer" drugs (Ecstasy, GHB) that I was seeing on the street that brought me to your site.

I want to thank you for trying to put a more objective spin on many of the drugs by highlighting the dangers as well as the good effects. So many sites have statements like "don't call 911, " and references to "expensive and unnecessary interventions". The mistrust this stuff breed is what's causing Drug deaths as much as the drugs themselves. Especially with GHB we on the street have been seeing more and more use and misuse of GHB and its pre-cursers, and of meth and even the good old opiates and cocaine.I can promise your visitors, that most GHB deaths should be preventable by early emergency care.

Your site, with its references to medical journals, reported experiences, and legislative updates has been an invaluable resource in our efforts to keep educated on the symptoms, treatment, and the culture surrounding the use of these drugs. This last is very important, for it assists us in gaining the trust and understanding for our patients (who are as often as distrustful of us as we are of them)

Many people, I would assume, often think of us (the paramedics) in a similar way as they think of the cops. For those that encounter us, I would ask that you remember a few things, just as you as our pt's would like us to understand (or at least not "Judge") you, we ask the same in return. For Example:
  1. Our first concern is that we want to go home alive at the end of our shift. Many people do not realize that violence against rescuers is increasing exponentially these days. And it often happens without warning. That's why we stage until someone clears the scene for us. If we seem like paranoid assholes, its the product of being in more hostile workplace, take efforts to keep calm, "be cool", and be friendly and most medics respond in kind.
  2. By knowing the truth about what was done (drug wise, activity wise, etc) before we arrive...it helps us out a lot. Often we are just told "man he just fell out!"...we really don't have a clear idea what is going on...We may have to be unnecessarily aggressive in out treatments (like intubation) to be safe...If we have a clear idea of what's going on we may not have to be as aggressive, or even better, Avoid doing something that may cause harm. (Like giving Narcan to a heroin/cocaine overdose)
  3. Understand that we have rules that we have to abide by in our care. We have to be able to either transport someone or if we leave a pt on scene, its under very strict medical guidelines. That's why we can't let someone "sleep it off"
  4. the days of "swoop and Scoop" are long gone, many times we stay on scene to carefully evaluate our pt's. Some times on overdoses (and other emergencies) people just expect us to throw the pt in the ambulance and go...we can do more good be doing certain things...these skills/meds/etc take time.
Regardless if you believe me or listen ...keep this in mind. A recurrent theme in this site is responsibility. Know your drug/body/dose/source/etc. While I cant legally condone the use of drugs (I see the bad side day in and day out) I will say this...most of the patients we see...we see because of their own stupidity. They didn't take the simple steps...and things go wrong...if common sense came in a pill ...Id go out of business.

I hope this letter helps your visitors to realize that paramedics are friends to be called when things get out of control. That we are not bastards by nature, we just come from a different world..

Good luck, be safe

I have recently read the praises and criticism page on your website and would like to add a praise for your balanced review of the neurotransmitter GHB. I have had very positive experiences with this chemical. I would like to offer a method of dosage for anyone who uses it. I am not sure whether you have indluded it in you info. I use a milliliter medicine dropper when i measure my dosage and when I give a dosage to someone else i make them watch me and I never give them more that 3 mils. to begin with. I NEVER take more than 5 mils. because it tends to make me violently ill. I have experimented with GHB and would like other people to learn from my mistakes. GHB is an very positive chemical when treated with respect, but so are all the psychedelics. We need to learn to respect what we injest.

I know there is a website like this, a friend of mine in Vegas showed me once. I know a lot of people who do it and would like them to be at least slightly informed before just popping shit in their mouths.

SD, Mike, and Psilonaut, if you'd like to contact me by email to discuss this, please do (sage@erowid.org). I'm sorry that it wasn't clearer what the intention of this guestbook was, but it's a relatively standard concept for a guestbook to be something that you sign once, not somewhere that conversations are carried on. We've never had a problem with it before, which is why it hasn't been specified at the top of the page. I've added a note to help avoid confusion in the future.

Perhaps you should state your censorship rules of what content would be acceptable to you on the messageboard more clearly than "Feel free to ADD to the book, but please do not use this forum to ask for or sell substances, or to place 'ads' for commercial vendors." We did not violate those terms, and it is a little frustrating to spend time composing a reply to a question here and then see it deleted before the other person responds.
Mike
- May 06, 2001 at 15:55 (PST)
I have a suggestion then. Can you create a forum? I don't think I saw one on the site. A lot of times I've wanted to just exchange ideas with people in real time, but I don't want to waste space in the guestbook anymore. I think if the site did have a forum, it would bring people together better.
SD
- May 06, 2001 at 15:30 (PST)
Sorry Guys. The guestbook is not intended as a forum for conversations back and forth between individuals. Instead it is intended as a place where people can post a public comment about Erowid or related topics.

I've removed the conversations from the past week or so. There are a lot of forums out there that can be used if you want to converse with others. I hope you understand.

Whoa, just got through reading KRK's little self-righteous spat. Fuck you KRK, even if you do forget about the personal freedom issue inextricable to the drug issue within a free democracy, arrogant and half-blind fucks like yourself are not about to solve anything. All you're doing, in truth, is satisfying your own self-righteous, sanctomonious conscience. We've seen the pictures of heroin OD, the news is bombarded with burned out fucks who did a bit too much meth for a few too many years. The problem is that the media only ever shows us that, news reports and media coverage is far from being objective and clear in it's portrayal of the drug issue, and statistics, what can I say about those wonderful collaghes of truth so quickly slapped together when the political will dictates. You have to realise my friend that the drug issue is perhaps one of the most complex and ambiguous issues in society today, and simplistic, rhetorical propaganda like yours is not going to help at all. The drug issue shouldn't be a war, it should be a resolution.

PS. KRK, something else I just realised. Scenario: You're an immature, impressionable kid. Now, listen to a Slim Shady song, then listen to adults being all rigid, strict, and authoratative (and you just hate that shit, your rebelling remember), and then visit Erowid, hell, you might still end up smoking a bit of pot, or maybe doing some shrooms or ecstasy, but fuck, at least you'll have the info and awareness to do it safely; and at least you'll know that there's a middle ground, and a third option between Slim Shady and your parents.

For those of you ripped off by ShamansGarden - You may want to try sending email to their ISP to inform them of how many people have been ripped off by their client. Their ISP is Dreamhost. I have been in contact with Jeff Campbell in their abuse department. He promised me he was going to send them a letter requesting that they respond to my complaint, and if they did not respond - the Shamans Garden website would be shut down. I have not heard back from anyone. Jeff's email is jeff@address_removed He did say that he could not just take one person's word for it that Shamans garden was ripping people off, so perhaps if everyone here that has complained about them stealing their money and not sending the merchandise that was ordered complains to Dreamhost, we can at least have their website shut down so they can't rip anyone else off.

I LOVE Erwoid!!!!! I'm so terribly sick of the 'dumb-ass','dysfunctional','no good no hoper' label that gets attached to you the second you touch even pot. My friend (call him J) used LSD at least 17 times btw grade 11 and 12, he got a decent result and now he's studying IT. In grade 11 and 12 I studied Chem, Physics, Maths B and C (the top two most advanced courses - prepare you for uni courses like microelectronic engineering and the like), in the last 6 months of year 12 I smoked pot every few days (usually after school, never before or during), dropped acid a couple of times and went shrooming a couple of times too. I got an OP of 4(that's the 4th highest 'End of Senior' result attainable - the highest is a 1 and the lowest is 25 - the average is 13; in Australia). I think it is so very important for sites like Erowid to present an objective overview of drugs and drug use, as well as allowing people like me to put forward that other side of the drug story the dominator culture and status quo simply refuse to believe exists. Drugs have had certain negative consequences on my being and my life I'll admit. I'm now overly-sensitive in terms of my emotional stability, and I find myself veering away from conventional (myopic, eliminative, linear, reductive) lines of thinking, and prefer creative endeavours which might not make me as rich (oh heaven forbid!). I probably would have got an OP of 1 had I abstained from such drug use, however, those crazy, kaleidescopic, rainbow splashed realms of elsewhere are where I discovered my soul, myself, and my truth - how dare society try to take that away from me(would they forbid an Islamic to believe in Allah in today's free democracy)!! Sure, once I had 500 mics of pure LSD and had severe problems sustaining a coherent train of thought for about a week afterwards, but shit, I got over it. We're so accustomed to taking the good with the bad when it comes to industry and pollution and politics, why are drugs and spirituality any different; I'll tell you why, because it's mystical!Because it can't serve the greater commercial good within the context of the conventional dogma. The status quo doesn't want people having spirituality full stop (it tends to distract people from being good consumers), let alone that most intimate, ineffable, paradigm shifting revelation that comes with profound ego-dissolution. Tibetan Buddhism is characterised by egolessness, China didn't invade Tibet because they even believed in themselves that they had a legitimate claim to it, they want to destroy Buddhism (esp. Tibetan Buddhism) because it preaches doctrines of egolessness which are counter-conducive to the cancerous imperative of the almighty dollar - but moreover any oligarchical power structure. Dissolving the ego, dissolves the pyramid, they know this!

Anyway, hope I'm not crapping on too much. I'd just like to say: we used to kill sharks in fear of them, then we realised our folly - we're not about to give up our cars but they're destroying the planet - taking the good with the bad is something we're being forced to do - we dream of money only when we've never been privileged enough to dreams the real dreams of the Great Spirit, Gaia, The Universe, God (with whichever name you seek to inculcate) - sure I've had bad experiences (Jung's shadow manifesting), and suffered certain aftershocks, but nothing like the effects society's propaganda has so empathically proclaimed time and time again (it's getting old and tired isn't it) - the visionary experience has profoundly and irrevocably altered me; it's made me myself!

"Cleanse the lens of perception" - Aldous Huxley

"Dream the dreams of our Great Mother" - me (on sacred mushrooms)

"There is no me, there is no you, there is just everything" - me

Freidrich Neitzsche once said, "There is a wild spirit of good-naturedness that looks like malice." It reminds me of the wild-eyes of my beshroomed companions. So if you see a person beshroomed, remember Neitzsche (hmm, yeah, see a person on shrooms with wild, crazy eyes, and be comforted by the words of a man who went horribly insane, oh shut up, the man was a genius - a chaotic genius maybe, but nonetheless a genius).

Okay, anyhow, I have chunks and chunks of my very own psychedelic literature (including poems, a story I'm writing, and esoteric psyche theories) I was hoping I could find an outlet for them with Erowid, I would greatly appreciate any avenues within or without this site you could provide. Thank you!

You guys should start up a section of this site to view and submit psychedelic poetry and short stories, etc.

Not getting sleep for a while can be just like getting high. You tend to stare at and observe things oddly, become mildly delerious, and you examine yourself and speak with yourself. TRY IT!!!

so,i'll tell the story. 1999 i spent 6 months in asia. at the beginning in thailand (on the island ko-pha-n'gan)i ordered with 2 friends a ganja shake. after 30 minutes from one second to the other it started. i suddnly had the feeling of being completely out of my body, it was like a complete depersonalisation and it scared me cos i never experienced that before and it was not fun:( . after a about 12h trip i "woke" up and everything was "normal" again. 3 months later i just had some puffs of a joint and those feelings of depersonalisation started again, but not soo strong but much longer. anyways, after 1 day i also started to feel really nervous and anxious, i had to move all the time. finally i got a medical treatement called "zyprexa". slowly slowly (3 months) i got better. i stopped the medicament and it didnt chang anything. after 12 months i still had feelings of depersonalisation and felt also depressed and i got a new medicament "deroxat", and really, after 3 weeks i felt much better. now 3 months later (after i started deroxat) i feel almost like great again. my big question; what kind of drug could i have had consumed (as im sure that it was not a ganja shake)? are thos symptomes normal? was this medical treatment necessary? i would be superhappy getting news:) greetings to everyone and enjoy simm simmsimm@address_removed> simmsimm@address_removed>simm

Hey SD and others: I have a possibly helpful bit of information re: Shamans Garden. The company in Hawaii that Shamans Garden owes money to sent someone to their local Post Office to see if they could get their new address. The postmaster told them that if they send mail to Shamans Garden old address with "CHANGE OF ADDRESS REQUESTED" printed on the envelope, the Post Office is required by law to provide the new address. They gave me Shamans Garden old address in Hawaii (on the Shamans Garden website, they provide an address in Fresno, CA that wont help you at all) The address is: Shamans Garden Dave Parker (owner) P.O. Box 23 Kilauea, HI 96754 I am going to send mail to this address and request the change of address information. Possibly this will help in tracking them down and getting our money back. If I hear anything else, I'll post it to the board. Mike

I too, have been ripped off by Shamans garden. They have taken $80.00 of my money, do not respond to emailand have a disconnected phone numer. I have sent email to all sites that have a link to Shamans Garden and received a reply from one of them who told me that Shamans Garden was in Hawaii, but moved back to the mainland in early April and that they have had to file a complaint against them for unpaid commission on the link. My stomach sank when I got to this messageboard and immediately noticed 3 complaints against them right at the top of the board. The person who filed the complaint against them has promised to send me any information on them they receive in regards to their complaint. If I get any valid contact information on these scam artists, I will post it here so that all the people who have been ripped off by these sleazeballs can contact the people responsible - and possibly file fraud charges against them. Be careful when you order online!

I should have looked at this page before.... SHAMANS GARDEN is a ripoff artist. THey don't even include their phone number on there page,which should have been the first indication that something is wrong. I also paid for 1-2 day shipping and didn't recieve anything, luckily my ccard dropped the charges after I called the disconnected number they provided my ccard co. Please remove this vendor from your site and warn others. Also I realize that you are not supposed to be anything but an objective site, but there are real dangers in many of the chemicals that are here, one example is Morning Glories, I tried to post an experience involving an almost fatal incidence with them. They are very dangerous, especially to anyone with heart or circulation problems. I believe in information, but there should be some healthy warnings about alot of these drugs, I believe in hallucinogens for mind-expansion and pot for fun, anything else is irresponsible and plain stupid. BE INFORMED. Carl

This site may be one of the greatest sites on the internet at this day and age. Truthful education on almost all drugs from scientific, and personal experience points of view have helped me make many good choices in my life that I might have messed up otherwise. If only anti-drug propaganga could be this blantently honest, then I do not think we would have so many innocent ignorant people hurting themselves with life-threating overdoses. Thanks a million p. s. To ppl who might take in "harder" substances; please dont be offended by thinking that I think you have poor judgement. Im sure that if you are at this site, then you are more than likely responsible enough to make good decisions that fit your lifestyle p. p. s. Sorry for the long booksigning, I just feel strongly that this site could be prevention of the world's children getting into something that they really don't want to get into. (it worked for me!) I dont think that I could not list all of the good these hard efforts have potential for making a better world. :) great job
I myself have read many files concerning other substances and have decided to stay shy from most everything except cannabis. Websites like this one deserve to be supported (not taken over) by the government as a way the help the war on drugs come to a reasonable end. I certainly plan to donate a good amount of resources (money, information, personal experiences) as I want to help the spreading of the honest word out. My only request of this site is to include information on some of the performance substances such as creatine, dietary supplements, and those "healthy" hormone changing pills. Placing knowledge on these substances would provide a whole other dimension to the vast knowledge to the site. BTW I love the idea of placing the personal experiences on the site. I fully support the personal experience for pure honesty in the up and downs of the decisions that others have made. Feel free to E-mail me if there are any other ways that I am able to help. p. s. I was not on anything at the time of the writing of this letter/signing, just so that if you thought this letter was out of "love" that some people seem to get while using substances. peace and good luck Travis

I have an interesting question for all those mary jane smokers out there. I t is known that when you smoke some good stuff or a lot of it, you tend to trip...which i define as when you heart begins to accelerate itīs pulses. Sure it is a fact that this happens the same night and instant that the use of the drug takes place. But the question i have is if the weed can cause another like trip; heart rate accceleration on any particular day, without using the drug (like a week after actually smoking), which is what happen to me, like a sort of flashback. Obviously itīs not like the first time i smoke, i have had some hectic pasts experiences. Please answer those who have this experience and what do you think thanks!

KRK, you're one dumb motherfucker. Knowledge is free. This knowledge saves people. We are not fucking killing people. People fucking kill themselves with their OWN actions. They, you, need some fucking responsibility for your own fucking actions instead of blaming others, like Erowid, who are trying to spread truth and proper use to keep people from abusing substances. This site isn't directly condoning drug use, it is merely here to educate and provide access to further information. You're just another blind, ignorant piece of shit. And if a fucking kid is using drugs, don't blame Erowid, point the finger in the right direction: bad parenting and lack of educating kids PROPERLY.

KRK, you don't seem to realize that this site does alot of good. Do you think its very likely that one website that presents facts on drugs will convince kids to do drugs that they weren't set on doing already? On the flip side, a person who is planning on taking a drug can find out how to be relatively safe. Websites that say don't do any drugs are obviously not reaching people, so doesn't it make sense to tell people how to safely do the drugs they are going to do anyway?

Trying to find some info on the report, i saw your site, and i was kind ainterested in theinformation you propose. Later i realised, that you people must die. You know why??? Read this shit you are writing yourself. You TEACH people and by teach i mean that you are not trying to hide the information of howto use drugs. Due to your site, i would be able if i want to grow some fucking weed, take a "designedn for me only" DOSE OF HEROIN, or just die.... Don't you find, you bunch of motherfucked retards that you are killing people and if some kid, who is not mature enough would be interested in taking some drugs, well, you can help him a lot. Why don't you, fuckers show the pictures and start a gallery of waht happens to people after a week of heroin or month of weed???? Ah??? Can't hear you! You'll have to answer for all your shit. And you will be punished. I swear.

Just wanted everyone to know: it's been over two weeks and I still have not received my shipment from Shamans Garden. Also, I have been emailing/calling them numerous times and NEVER getting a response. My next step is to report them to http://www.ifccfbi.gov/. If anyone else (in the U.S.A.) has a problem with a U.S.A. company that sells LEGAL shamanistic herbs for medicinal/meditative reasons, I suggest you report them too. It may seem like no big deal, but I'm just one person...and I've talked to like at least 5 other people that have had serious problems with this particular company...so that's Like $50x5. And it's been happening a lot, so it's exponential rip-off.

I came across your web page searching for a good cannabis growing site...and the little I have read so far I have found extremely informative! In fact, I was going to clean my children's room and do laundry today, but I think I'll go back to reading your fantastic site; it's as interesting as a good New York Times recommended book. I shall be more than happy to make a donation and receive one of your t-shirts for my youngest son to wear to school. Also, some of your readers might be interested in going to NorthernSun.com...a terrific on-line catalog of anarchistic and philosophical murchandise, from t-shirts to bumper stickers. Anyway, thanks for a great eye-opening and educational site.

to the police officer: drugs are not the problem...it's people's ignorance and stupidity. the drugs don't really "do" anything that is out of the ordinary. it's not guns that are doing things bad, it's the people. it's not the drugs doing anything bad, it's the people. it's stupid for people to get pissed off at something when it is only being what it was made to do. it's what humanity does with it that makes things "wrong" . my point is...nothing is/was wrong in this world until humanity fucked it up and abused it. this planet was here long before us, so who are we to cage it and to have a government say what we can and can't do IF WE ARE EDUCATED ABOUT IT? the chemicals and plants mentioned on this site have been around for thousands and thousands of years before we were, and what government has done to some extent is pure stupidity.

Information is almost always good. Even though I am a police officer, I must agree with several of the thought provoking items I have found on your site. I think FREEDOM is extremely vital for the survival of our nation. However, I do fear the fact that more young people are using chemicals that can easily harm them physiologically, psychologically and spiritually. I must admit I do not have all the answers but I must enforce the laws and Constitution I swore to defend. Your site is most assuredly a "two edged sword". It will certainly cut both ways. Use your information wisely. America will only survive as long as Americans are "good". When Americans cease to care about doing good, we will certainly fall. A drugged America may not be the best path toward "doing good" to each other. I believe that some will abuse this site and harm others (or themselves) with the information found here. However, in a free society, that is a risk I am willing to take and to face.

I sent several articles including the missing complete pennsylvania drug law and you didn't put it in. I can answer a lot of the ask erowid questions if you'd like; I noticed a few errors and missed things in a few answers including one that sorta bugged me about methamphetamines. You can get methamphetamines that are pharmaceutical grade. You are aware of Provigil right? Narcoleptics are hard to find but i'm sure you could have given a better answer to a person asking for an average dosage for a 120 lb person then evading the question. I'd like to help with the site and maybe answer some inquries because &Totse is just too easy and boring and they aren't giving me the moderator status I deserve.

I sent you (Erowid) an email about a problem a LOT of people have been encountering with Shamans Garden. I don't know if that email went through. I'll try again, but for now, this is what I sent you. It's somewhat of a serious matter if people plan on buying from them. "I just wanted to comment about something. I have been trying to get involved with Salvia Divinorum, and I decided to go to Shamans Garden before researching into more stores (my mistake). The problem is that myself and over a dozen other people I have spoken with, have had serious problems with their service and delivery, sometimes never receiving the products or having them arrive 20 days late (even when they paid for the 1-2 day express shipment). I think you should note that next to the link to their site. It must have gotten really bad, because they removed their ePubliceye link, which was showing a lot of recent negative excounters with the business. My shipment is nearly a week late already. A lot of people have been experiencing them lying about the shipment's delivery dates. So this should be a serious heads-up for anyone who might purchase from them. With over a dozen (and increasing in number) problems arising, no one should get screwed over again."

You got the best picture gallery in tha world. LONG LIVE THE PSYCHEDELIC ART VAULTS. BHOLENAT! CHARSI CA NEIMARSI (may charas's makers live forever)....
Nettle, as some of us just know, got about the 3% of THC. The plant is "goodforuse" just like tha weed ,i.e., when it thrives. When is red at the top, when the thinnest leaves are reddish and the plant is about to spread its seeds. I don't know if nettle contains thc only in determinated zones. I live in italy and here almost all nettles contain thc. It was proved by a chemical test (thanks Rome's university's labs): 7 sample on 10 showed low quantities of thc (from 2,4 to 3,8) : The nettles were picked up in the Latium region (about the 42,5 parallel) and were at the beginning of the thriving (1 week before!). I hope I've been precise and written correctly. Some people say that when is not too irritating is good.

This is in response to the post from ICU RN. Stupid people use drugs stupidly. Let's face it, anyone who OD's was either too lazy to do their homework or just plain stupid. Do the math & chem, you went to school for it - the dosages on this site are safe. That's not to say, however, that all the substances neccesarily are - that's where one's own judgement comes in. And your little comment about legality...what the hell does the legality of anything matter? Most laws in our country/state were written by politicians/lawyers for their own gain, or that of their beneficiaries. By the way, posting information about drugs is perfectly legal. And a good idea, since such information is hard to find. If someone is going to use a hard drug, it's better to have a numerical estimate of how much to use and some information on what happens to your biochemistry and conscious mind than take a shot in the dark and use a random amount or what a friend claims is a safe amount. Lastly, if you're going to make a bitchy post like that, at least leave an email address so you can discuss such topics with you. Anyone with any decency and half a brain would, rather than attack you, be willing to have an exchange of ideas.

Although I have only been aware of its existence for a few months, I have to yet to find any single site (hell, even a collection of sites or a webring) with such a large quantity of HIGH QUALITY information on such an a vast array of topics. I've used this site to research psychoactive substances for both my own use and for information to pass on to others, to do research for Poli-Sci papers, to find reading on Eastern religions and practices, and to find martial arts organizations in my hometown. Thanks for such a wonderful resource, keep up the good work! Anyone who wants to discuss any of the topics on Erowid.org, or just about any topic for that matter, feel free to contact me. Keep it real.

If anything it was the other chemicals that are in Coricidin but still he would have had to taken 50+ pills to even be in the danger area. Shit like that letter pisses me off.

You are my fungi bible. I trust your judgement on all things fungal, second of course to my own common sense. I think you do a *high* service to those of us with restless minds. Thanks.
I live in the back woods of the North west where shrooms thrive in abundance from september-november. I'm talkin' Puget Sound country. I only started to harvest natures fungi about mid october, last year. Of course I use erowid as my bible to guide me from the bad to the best of fungus. I conservitively avoided ingesting questionable shrooms, which after revewing were probably good stuff. But I'd rather risk a no high to a "tummy ache" LOL. Consequent to my caution I experienced neither. I have encountered quite a few cyanopus varieity (I presume) this past winter, which have dwindled in number into this month of April. I took 175 of these presumed cyanopus with no effects. I am looking forward to the september-october season...during which time I plan to launch forth boldly, gathering the pelluculosas & semilanceatas. Pray tell, are fly agarics known to be found in puget sound land?

Although not entirely complete, the Erowid database is the largest source of information on drugs I know of, and I'd like to thank you guys. I have been using your site for months, and I have always felt a lot safer having read about a substance on your site before travelling to outer space. Because your site is the only single one drug archive I know that is so good, I am thinking of what a great loss for our society it would be if the Erowid vaults suddently became unavailable for whatever reason (flood, fire, legal issues etc.) What I think you should do is periodically distribute a CD-ROM with a selection of the most inportant data, just like linux distributions, so that even if the site ever comes off line, lots of people will own (outdated) versions of the archives. Ofcourse once you publish the CD-ROM most people will still want to visit your site for the latest facts and to post trip reports, and from selling the CD-ROM you will make money that I know you are in need of.
I'd like to repeat Mycofella's question on 23/12/00 and david hudson's question on 10/10/00 about why isn't there any info on drugs like xanax and ridalin? My point is that there must be lots of people who are looking for info on pharmaceuticals. I'm gonna post an alprazolam trip report myself soon, but I think there should also be some more "scientific" info on prescription dugs, like there is on more popular substances.

I must apoligize for accidently posting the exact same message twice. I should have figured out earlier that HTML wouldn't work in here. To avoid wasting any more valuable space in the guestbook, this will be the last time I speak of that mistake. Since everyone's talking about E in here: my input is this: Anyone who thinks they are purchasing MDMA when they buy a pill called "Ecstasy" or "E" is sadly mistaken. Those pills most likely contain heroin, cocaine, MP14 (what the hell is that, anyway?), amphetamines, and caffeine. Pure MDMA is called Molly. E sucks!

Only one thing : without erowid there's no reason for being wired!!!!!!!!!!!! A BIG ChEER from Italy!!!!!!!acidpanda
Did you know that every 7 years psylocibin mushrooms (if i'm not wrong : all the psylocibe's,the panaeolus and entheogenic ones from stercoaria family) get an extraordinary power from some planet (I don't remember). Power means more mushrooms and more powerful (the fact from non-biological point o' wiew). Every 7 years mushroms (from the families above) are more and more powerful by something in their DNA (the fact from biological point o'wiew). The last "good" year was the 1999. This info I got from the druid's community in Trentino (italy).

Your site is the most informative, and best (sorry for using such an over-used word) site I've found so far (Cannabis.com holds second place). I had to repost this because I fucked up on the last one
These are terms that I've heard people using that isn't in the dictionary. Angel Dust- a twin chemical of PCP; a chemical closley reated to PCP; a form of PCP; extremely weak PCP Chamber- The part of a cannabis pipe (bowl) where the resin collects) Crack- a smokeable mixture of [psychially addictive, deadly chemicals like]cocaine, heroin, and inhalants not intended to be smoked (gasoiline, plastic, etc.) Dust- Angel Dust0 E- Laced MDMA (usually laced with heroin, cocaine, MP14 [? I have no clue what MP14 is, I'm just going by what experienced E- users have told me], amphetamines) Ecstasy- Laced MDMA (usually laced with heroin, cocaine, MP14 [? I have no clue what MP14 is, I'm just going by what experienced E- users have told me], amphetamines) Head- the part of a cannabis pipe or waterpipe, usally containing a screen, that gets packed Hit- a puff; an intake of a lunfull of smoke; to hit Pit- the part of a cannabis pipe or waterpipe, usally containing a screen, that gets packed Slips- Cannabis laced with LSD; Cannabis/LSD Combo Stem- the tube on a cannabis pipe taht connects the head/pit to the mouthpiece Tic Tacs- Pure MDMA Also, I feel I must correct something: It said in an answer to an Ask Erowid question that; because joints are unfiltered; smoking three joints is equal to smoking a pack of cigarettes. First of all, the filter makes a cigarette more harmful. Second, cigarettes are laced with acetone, cyanide, arsenic, etc. A cigarette is by no means a cigarette of pure tobacco. Yes, pure cannabis is more carcinogenic than pure tobacco; but this is irrelevant because cigarettes are laced.

You give a lot of Informations about chemistry but sometimes you donīt speak about the danger of the chemie. There are substances used, that are highly flammable, explosiv or you can get cancer from it. Itīs not easy to make drugs without a realy good laboratory (a realy good lab is to expenciv) and itīs a big risk to work with this substances without knowing how to work with it. Please donīt give informations to people without speaking about the danger ;-))

I first learned of this greatly diverse and plentyful site not more than a month ago. My first impression was one of surprise over the actual amount of raw data, which to me being a pharmacological/pharmaceutical masters student, also encompases a respectable level of scientific integrity. I do not delve into the depths of stronger neurosimulants myself, but I can only agree that knowledge contra ingnorance leeds to fewer accidents and fatalities. I'm still finding new spheres within this bountyful site; but a couple of the "stimulants" do lack a safety desription on toxicity as this site does manifest it self as a guide to many ... S

I'm in the navy reserves. I fucked up, and got popped on a piss test. Without the valuable information I found through your website (and a considerable time delay, due to budget constraints), I'd have flushed my career down the toilet months ago. At least now I stand a chance. Thanks a great deal.

i was just wondering if there is ever mescaline in exstacy...i knw othat a lot of pills are said to contain it, but never do. so, if anyone knows of pills containing mescaline obtained through testing the pill, or manufacturing the pill please email. not to be rude, but i'm not interested in any response from guessing or experiences. i just want the facts. thank you

God bless Albert Hofmann!
hi, folks! I'm a 31-years-old student of philosophy and psychology from germany, but my main interest and desire is the exploration of the endless realms of time and space, mind and spirit. I cant't imagine this way without the useful help of psychedelics. I had my first acid-experience when I was 17 and since that day I walk the psychonautic way. psychedelics have changed my life totally. they gave me the power to stop my addiction to other drugs, including heroine, cocaine, amphetamine and - last but not least - nicotine. Today I celebrate psychedelic sessions as carefully planned rituals (with high dosages) two times per year, a spring-time-session on eastern-sunday and an autumn-session at the time of November-full-moon. It's my kind of religious practice and I don't want to miss it. psychedelics have shown me that all is ONE, that there is no reason to live in fear, that all the trouble with inside/outside-, black/white-, male/female-concepts, or, in other words, that all the dualistic trouble is an illusion, they have shown me the way to tear down these veils of maya and see the truth behind them, the truth that cannot be described, which lies hidden in pure SILENCE. life ís a great, joyous adventure and it has NO LIMITS. life is the most precious gift and I feel full of gratitude for it. The use of psychedelics or entheogens have allowed me to do the first steps over this threshold of consciousness.

Always been a real fan of your page, keep up the information it can save a life (it likely saved mine). I must warn evreyone who reads this that Heaven and Hell are real and you can get to the first of these through Jesus. I know this because it was shown to me in a vision. I am telling it to you because I know you all have open minds to things. As did I because I do (partially because of my past with the topics of your page). Feel free to e-mail me with questions or if you prefer closed-minded hate mail. Peace out rick P.S. Sorry for posting my views on your guest book but if you listen to them you will thank me later.

I must say this is an excellent site in all respect. It's one of my favorites in this field, being 51 and from the 60's era. I find it quite informative dealing with the carbon chemistry field (my love)! I would recommend this site to my own children 17 & 25 as far inquiring on important issues in life, and unbiased. It seems like so many liberties and rights are being threatened every day (for the good of us) so they say. Keep up the good work. Glasman

If you are a member of any military branch, you will be tested for LSD. I personally dont do drugs, although i used to a few years back. I thought this information might come in handy to some of the readers of the drug testing vaults. Thanks a lot for your time and keep up the good work. -ONce a smoker..always a smoker..some day again.

Does anyone out there know how many types of Ipomea contain lysergic amides, or if any are potentially poisonous, my town has sveral types growing wild, but I can find little imformation regarding any except for the famous violacea and riviera corymbosa. Please e-mail me if you have any helpful information.
Excellent recourse site, although there is one substance which I couldn't find any imforation about. A friend gave me an ample of adrenaline (his parents own a surgery), injecting the liquid gave a pretty intence rush although it's not something I would do again without researching. Anyway, keep up the good work, there are some substances that I will never touch after visiting this site, substances which I would have tried had I not know about the dangers. Now, thanks to erowid, I know a fair bit about many chemicals out there.

I am an MA student in Religions and Theology and I am currently conducting research into the extent to which psychedelic substances can induce religious experiences. I would be interested to hear from anyone who has had a genuine religious experience under the influence of such drugs. I am particularly interested in the ways in which psychoactive drugs effect ones moral thought processes.
More about the religious properties of pysychedelic substances.

I am studing behavioral pharmacology and I must say this is the most impressive gathering of psychotropic drug information Ihave seen avalible to the public. And I am excited to agree with the premise here, that an informed population will make the correct personal decisions and that such an environment is always better than a population suppressed by fear and propaganda. Praise to you "Erowid" (that is a rather goffy name, don't you think)
Perhaps a better explanations of general chemistry so that novices could understand the chemical groups.

I just read your bit on talking to cops, and I fully agree. But I live in south africa, and when you through drugs away, or if your unco-operative they just fuck you up really badly. And when you try and lay charges nothing happens, you just seem to cause more shit for youself. I mean a guy I knew swallowed all his drugs just as the cops pulled up. Two of them held him, and the other punched him in the stomach untill he puked. They dug the still plastic rapped drugs out of his puke, continued to fuck him up with their battens, they then put him in the back of the cop van and rolled him out while driving at the public hospital. He came really close to death, and over what? a bit of heroin.

I think south africa would be so much better with out any laws. Just every man for himself. At least then us non-cops can defend ourself's. I mean they say you can't carry a gun, there's a length limit to your knife ext. It's fucked up!

what drugs are available in different countries, their strengths compared to other countries, and the countries laws about drugs. for example in the street heroin purificatio recipe the person says that these days you can only get a black type heroin that reeks of vinigar. Here in south africa we get good thai white...

Hey, I would just like to priase your fantastic site just as the many others have. My first time trying MDMA, DXM, shrooms, ect, were all greatly helped specifically because of this sites un-ending information vault. Even during my past year where I smoked pot every night, I would simply find delight in reading the experiences of others. I would just like to thank you for informing people of the truths about most drugs. Without them, my expierences of the drugs mentioned might have been bad if not terrible. One thing I would love to see included is expierences/tips to get rid of the pyschological addiction of marijuana. Having one for DXM yet not pot seems a little odd...basically, I need the help. =) One love

Not much to say, other than: what a quite brilliant web-site! It should be utilised by ANY government drug-education group. Having used psilocybin many many times in (phew) good set-and-settings, I can only praise the way it's been laid out and the papers/essay included are of a standard required for a psychogen like psilocybin. Keep up the good work.
Hmmm...lemme get back to you on that one... Though probably every paper ever written on psilocybin would be an outstanding addition! Will send you a copy of the stuff from my forthcoming book, "British Magickal Fungi" when it appears.

Like always, the continuous updating of the research chemical information. Also, the following strain of Acacia, simplex(simplicifolia). Perhaps a List of other lists of the Alkaloid content in the many of DMT and 5-meO-DMT containing plants, compile them all and leave out all of the notes and what not. Surveys on the following: AMT,5-meO-AMT,DPT,DIPT,5-meO-DIPT,2C-I, and BZP.

This stuff could prevent a nervous system breakdown. (Damn, that sounds like something someone could say on an infomercial..."Thanks Erowid!") no really...merci beaucoupe!
Erowid's got it all, but there is this insightful book entitled, THE CONFESSIONS OF A DOPE DEALER, by Sheldon Norberg. It's a great read.... The author describes His involvement within the underground drug culture and strongly emphasizes the impact his "job" had on self-discovey and hidden emotions...basically if you like the title, you'll dig the book. for more info just email me.....meow

Hello whoever you may be,
Thus you will know ... And understand...
Each word that said in that reflection,
Yet Progression... of my mind..,

Unstopable like time it runs inside my body,
It tells me something that I'm forced to share...
With anothers... who might be like you ...
Unless... I'm wrong... which I may be...

I wish to share what I know, however ...
In return ... for what I offer ...
I want another piece of mind, like mine....
That understands what's given and ...

Will return the favor...
Because the price of information
Is undescrible...
Yet only in the right hands ...

I am recieveing information, however
It's assimulated by something else,
...That's to enhance the feeling...
That I have always had and questioned...

My origin, might be an issue
That you would like to understand...
I came from different place...
Please Do not judge of

What I am by what I am...
I think of me, as something different...
Yet I'm ashamed for that myself
I've got a gift and this his nature

My age -- is something to decieve...
My knowledge -- different, it's uncertain,
It comes from listening, precieving, and...
Analyzing what I'm seeing..

I'm paranoid, I do not want
To hurt another being... of my domain
Or maybe other... you wouldn't know
Unless you would... it's possible of cource

I seek unique collaboration with a purpose...
Of achieving another level of an understanding...
Of What, You ask ? Uncertain yet again...
What can I say, it's matter of the subject.

I have alot to say my friend, however...
I am afraid to say to much and spoil,
Another work of mind that happened before.
I'll let it be for you....

Another thing, I'm urged to tell you,
To use the offer you are given
You'll need more than juast understanding,
But also a belief that you are dealing ...

With something else... OK I'll leave it
All at that for you to analyze or pass
To one who will, please answer I will wait
But not too long I'm urged to know the answer.

Another yet last key I'll give you would be
A Book about Alice Who went another place...
That pictured nicely in the book for kids
But other people will say different...

Great, I'd appreciate if someone on your side could do us all the favour of putting the Phytochemical compendium (with all the drawings of all the existing chemical molecules in plants)on the net, I will never be able to afford the damn book (about 1000 USD), but actually well worth them, considering the amount of work.

You can look up from plant to compound or compound to plant!!!!!!! I can look up the ref if you want to, but you guys must know the book...

Hi there, sorry for this long intro, but on a topic such as the Nightshades... I'm 41, 37 year student of nature, prof herbalist, specialised in 18th and 19th century plant materia medica (French, Italian, Russian, German, Swiss, Spanish schools),world traveller in search of plants and recipees, healers and applications, 4 years on and off in a convent in Benin, West Africa, following a very thorough course on āll applications of venomous plants, privately teaching 4 specialisation years to professional and licensed herbalists, of which a full half year on the Nightshades and how to properly prepare them for any use a pro herbalist may have in mind, privately practicing "plant medicine for the poor".At the moment I'm learning Arabic to have access to the Arabian literature.... (no jokes)

I'm not into money at all.

I'm horrified to see everyone even mentioning Datura without mentioning what you have to add to your preparation to make a good experience out of it, instead of a highway to hell.....All these people dead or "empty"....If you're interested, I'd like to contribute with a piece on the Nightshades, but any censor put on it could be dangerous....

I met Datura a little less than 20 years ago in an open beerhall in Vic Falls, Zimbabwe at the end of the war, but that's a long story.....Best regards,
Phil

Just wanted to thank you for including the extensive information on nicotine content in various brands of cigarettes... I'm trying to quit, and wanted to compare the amount of nicotine in the patch I'm wearing to the amount which I would normally take in during a day of smoking. Thank you.

Best site on the net. No bullshit, just facts + everything from Shakespeares complete work to LSD trips. Thank you guys!

The keys are:
1. Have fun!
2. Respect and love others and yourself!

The rest isn't very important compared to these two things. You maybe have no idea what I'm talking about , but you will at some point...

//nofdd// - no fear, doubt or disbelief
why should you be afraid? Afraid of what? Just do it!
