I believe this is my fourth experience with Hawaiian Baby Woodrose (HBWR) seeds, although it may be my fifth or sixth. I have also had three or four experiences with LSD, the most recent of which was about 6 years ago. My last HBWR experience was probably 7 or 8 years ago.
Followed "Simple Nausea Free LSA Extraction Technique" method of LSA extraction (cold water).
Used a mortar and pestle to grind 12 seeds. Did not bother to scrape them first. I purchased these seeds online -- $8.99 US for about 100 seeds (10 g). Delivery was free but very slow, with the seeds arriving about 12 days after I ordered them.
After grinding, I mixed the resulting powder into about 4 oz. of water that had been boiled, left to cool, and poured into a plastic water bottle. Covered the bottle with foil and left it in the refrigerator overnight--total 'soak time' was about 20 hours. Shook the bottle a few times during this period.
total 'soak time' was about 20 hours. Shook the bottle a few times during this period.
Water became very dark--nearly black. Added 1/2 tsp of minced garlic (from a jar) and left it in the bottle for about 45 minutes, shaking the bottle three or four times during this period. Filtered the water through a paper coffee filter, then added about 8 oz. of orange juice.
Drank the resulting concoction on an empty stomach and fairly quickly--one sip to taste, then two quick chugs. Ingestion occurred at approximately 12:22 PM.
Mild nausea around 15-20 minutes after ingestion. One visit to the bathroom where I felt like I might vomit, but did not.
Smoked some cannabis around 40 minutes after ingestion--only a single one-hitter, but that is my most common dose. Felt like this helped with (but did not completely eliminate) the nausea. Felt first pleasant sensations (that I attribute to the HBWR seeds and not the cannabis) around 50 minutes after ingestion. Began documenting the experience around 1:15 PM.
1:41 PM - nausea has mostly subsided and trip has definitely begun. Not sure whether the garlic was actually effective, but this is probably the least nauseating experience I have had with HBWR.
2:02 PM - stepped outside for a cigarette. Nausea increased a little, but not so much as to make me feel like I was going to vomit. Seems to have subsided now. While outside, I experienced some fairly pleasant tingling in my limbs. The head trip has been enjoyable so far.
3:39 PM - still enjoying the trip. Nausea has not returned. I would recommend the method of preparation and ingestion that I used.
5:11 PM - almost five hours into the trip. No cannabis in the last four hours; no cigarettes in the last three. Body sensations are pretty strong... muscles feel kind of sore, as though I had recently finished a workout. Have had moments in the last hour or so where I felt slightly nauseated, but those feelings have passed fairly quickly. In between, I've felt hungry, but still have not eaten anything all day.
7:30 PM - ate a good-sized dinner, and this effectively ended the trip. It had been waning for the previous 90-120 minutes.
