I wanted to share my preparations because so many reports depict people 'poisoning' themselves. I did a great deal of research before embarking on this journey and feel that this plant can be used without ill effects.
I have a fairly extensive history of hallucinogen usage excepting mushrooms and all current RCs minus Methylone. My mindset was mildly irritable and slightly tired but, the extraction needed to be tested. I take no prescriptions but do take fenugreek supplements.
1. I scraped the fuzzy hairs off of the outside with my fingernails, it seems if I broke the seams at the edge of the seeds it flaked off easily. Though some seeds would not release the fuzz! They went back in the bag. 6 seeds total for me.
2. Ground to a fine powder in coffee grinder.
3. Mixed with 1/2 oz distilled water and 1/8 of a limes juice in a dark glass bottle, shook the crud out of it and put in fridge. Let set 24 hours shaking when I remembered.
4. At 24 hours I chopped up 1 garlic clove and put in bottle, continued shaking as I remembered. Allowed to set another 24 hours in fridge.
5. Strained mixture through cheesecloth. Squeezed gently to get the last bit out of solids then discarded seed matter and garlic. Washed out bottle then put the liquid back in and it went back into the fridge.
Now I am unsure of how unstable LSA is in this form, I may have had a milder experience because I waited another 24 hours before dozing. The mix reeked of garlic but, the purpose was to use the sulphur compounds to break down the cyanide precursers to avoid nausea.
I mixed it with about 6oz of Acai berry juice and sipped over the course of 20 min. I had also fasted since breakfast. It was 8:05 when I started drinking it. I had some extremely mild nausea but I think it was due to hunger and the lingering garlic taste honestly.
9:25 first noticeable visual change, subtle glowy nice.
10:00 begin to feel a bit giggly and just plain nice in my body.
10:45 starting to really get these waves of pleasure and this feels so familiar!
Suddenly it 1:30 am.... I have no idea how time flashed by but, it was fun! Feels like if LSD and MDMA almost. All body minimal visual change just enough to know it is there. And even though my body feels good, my skin is kinda numb like on acid. The whole night was just so pleasant!
3:00am tired now think I can sleep.
Ended up reading for about an hour and then falling asleep easily. Had vivid sex dreams that kinda freaked me out a bit..... overall awesome experience. I think next time I will not use the whole garlic clove for such a small amount of liquid and I will not fast for as long. Oh and I was able to eat fine but, food was not all that tasty.
Eating the seeds would not have been pleasant.
