I had read about the LSA containing seeds of the H.B. Woodrose online and have recently had a pang to experience something new and unconventional that I could acquire easily so ordered 50 of them untreated online really inexpensively for the price of £3.99 or around 6.45. I had a little experience of psychedelic and euphoric drugs having in the past taken salvia, Acid just once or twice (but forgot the experience due to alcohol), Many times taken ketamine but by and large kept to milder stuff or stimulants like weed, ecstasy, speed (but had trips on it with large amounts), coke and a majority of opioids. Maybe this was why I was panging for something psychedelic since I had barely touched drugs recently save for a little ecstasy a few weeks back. I have grown bored of the old kicks and look for something more substantial or dare I say spiritual.
As it was my day off from both University and Work I had very little sleep the night before so was up early yet tired and then the mail arrived. I could have gone to sleep but I was too excited so immediately soaked 6 of the seeds, I then scrapped off the toxic coating of the seed and looked for my grinder in order to extract the LSA in liquid but couldn't find it. l I looked and looked ... and looked, so I was going to have to ingest the seed itself orally which from most reports I have read was leaving me wide open to nausea.
At around 11-11.30PM, I started to chew each of them one by one until they were thoroughly pasted in my mouth and washed it with a warm mint to to aid the ingestion. The seeds did not taste particularly strong surprisingly.
By 12 pm I already started to feel the seeds effects as I was getting slight closed eye visuals whenever I blinked, but nothing too intense along with mild upset stomach.
At 12.30 pm the nausea was much stronger so I lay on my back already in my bed and felt generally loose my arm and legs felt as though they were experiencing some tension which wasn't really that unpleasant as opposed to the nausea. Being aware of the slight tension made me feel more aware of my movements and how I focused on moving which makes me think my sense of feeling was affected as I touched my matte painted wall and felt the texture. I tried to ingest some diet cola but it was very rough on my throat yet I was read of rehydration otherwise this would get rougher.
About ten minutes later I drank some fresh orange juice and it went down much easier. With rehydration I felt better
With rehydration I felt better
and the juice was cooling on my gullet even though It made my stomach feel more full which meant there was a more conscious effort to hold the contents down. The experience was getting stronger too, The closed a visuals would linger when I opened my eyes. if I had to describe the visuals I would say a mild morphing swish of light.
I thought I would see how it would affect my perception of things so watch a fractal video but to be honest it just made me a little weary and then watched a random Leslie Nielson comedy instead and fell asleep, noting the LSA had not affected my humor or made me giggly.
I woke up around 4.00 PM and felt much less nauseated and with intense closed eye visuals, mild open eye visuals and a general sense of being detached from it all. It made me wonder if this was the peak of the experience or whether I had that but been asleep something I had wondered once before when I swallowed an ecstasy and immediately fallen asleep only to have woken up several hours later sweaty like I had been through it all. The feeling was pretty good, Nothing too intense or trippy.
By around 5pm I was feeling pretty regular and altogether again, Though intermittently through the even nod off with a slight lingering feeling. The passage of time looking back seemed much lessened even taking into account my sleeping.
Looking back on the experience I would say that I would have preferred something a little stronger but of course this is not LSD so I'm not very surprised. It just felt like the start of something or add on to something and not an experience in and of itself, I believe that some weed or even a mild dosing of valium would help each potentiate the other .
I will definitely prepare the extraction next time because the nausea really stopped this from being a fun and detached time but having a strong stomach stopped me from purging. I also think I will pick my setting better next time both the mood and venue, With a group of people or outside would bring out some of the aspects of the drug much better than say experimenting in the house whilst tired.
