Syrian Rue & Acacia Confusa Test Dosage

Roughly 1.5 Grams of each was finely ground and split up into 6 00 sized capsules (3 rue, 3 acacia). The capsules were ingested orally starting at at 11:30pm and were taken in intervals about every five minutes.

+17 Minutes, I finish my third syrian rue capsule. I have taken a few of these without the Acacia in low doses (about one gram) for the past two days whilst smoking my normal amount of weed (about 1-2 grams a day) throughout the day. I have noticed that it pairs nicely with weed, and basically, I just feel extra stoned and extremely focused on whatever I'm doing. Dry mouth more than usual is my only side effect from this. Also it's worth mentioning I haven't eaten in the past four or five hours, my last meal being three slices of cheese pizza and lots of water. I finished two hard ciders about an hour ago and feel a slight buzz from the alcohol still. Also earlier today I was using woodworm extract, tobacco, marijuana, and drinking kava kava tea. I now feel no effects from any of that stuff.

+22 Minutes, I take my first Acacia capsule. I'm not feeling that nervous, although beforehand I was a little wary of using this aya analogue, as I believe the plants deserve the most respect possible, and I think it's a little late to being doing this
I think it's a little late to being doing this
. But after talking to my girlfriend, she reassured me that if I keep a good mindset, and was really feeling the time is now, that tonight is a good night, as neither of us have to really wake up that early tomorrow. So I reassured myself a low experimental dose would be fine.

+30 Minutes, I'm bad at keeping track of the time, but still trying to maintain the 5 min. dosing intervals. Just took another acacia capsule. I still have one more left and also an extra in case later I decided to try boosting the effects.

+37 Minutes, Just took the last capsule of acacia. Still not feeling any major effects, just a mild relaxed feeling. Hoping to get at least a mild experience and I'm ready for it, but with no real expectations. As much as I hate spending my time staring at screens, I'm going to settle down and watch some random internet videos with my girl to pass the time. I'm trying my hardest to keep a positive mindset and enjoy the night, as it has been a really nice day and evening. We are also stocked up with lots of high quality weed, so we might smoke some soon.

+42 Minutes, my girl decided to put on some type of real murder case story. Hmm not sure it's the best trip material, but I'm down to roll with it for a little, as I am confident in my own mind, yet still ready to let go. Sitting here I am feeling small waves of heaviness in my stomach and throughout my body. Its enjoyable and still no ill effects. I am also noticing that it is becoming a little harder to type.

+1hr 19 Minutes, feeling still a little heavy and a slight feeling of chest burn similar to smoking yopo seeds... But still no major affects. I am pretty sure the does was too low, or possibly the timing was off. I think next I'll attempt to consume the syrian rue all at once followed by the acacia all at once with 30 mins. in-between.

+2 Hours, I feel really good and after stripping down naked I decided to lay down in bed. My body felt very warm. Laying next to my girlfriend on my back felt amazing, and I knew I was going to fall asleep rather quickly. That night I had VERY vivid dreams about brewing up a batch of ayahuasca. I also had a dream that took place in my childhood home, a place I have dreamed about in the past but not for years.

The next morning, I woke up feeling very relaxed and a slight heaviness to my body. I was amazed how vividly I could recall my dreams from the night, as usually I cannot remember them at all, or the memories fade away very quickly after rising. All in all, it was a safe test dose, as I have no idea how potent these specific plants are. No ill effects were felt, and I am now more confident in raising the dosage level. I'm going to try 3 grams syrian rue, and 3 grams acacia next, as I was nowhere near breaking through any kind of DMT threshold, and did not experience any of the intense visuals I have felt in the past while smoking DMT crystals. I am very excited to further experiment with this combination of plants.

Love & Light
