12-Hour Vomit Fest
by Fighter365
Citation:   Fighter365. "12-Hour Vomit Fest: An Experience with Calamus (exp110210)". Mar 27, 2017.

5 drops oral Calamus (extract)
  4 drops transdermal Calamus (extract)


I read that this herb helped with dreaming abilities and decided to go ahead. I found one report of a guy who took 5g of the root and steeped it in water and had a solid report over a period of a few uses.

I ordered Calamus Root Essential Oil and this was my first mistake. I know how potent the oils are compared to their plant counterparts but for some reason, went blind on the dosage and I didn't check other reports. I am such an idiot; I usually never make these mistakes with dosage.

Hindsight 20/20 it says that Calamus root is not good for internal consumption due to its ability to induce vomiting.

I retrieved an empty pill casing and put 5 drops of the oil in and then proceeded to put 2 drops on each arm for a total of 9 drops. (WTF WAS I THINKING)

I even put 8 drops into my diffuser near my bed, this is what I should have done and skip ingesting. Puke party from hell for 12 hours.


1:41am - Took the Dosage.

2:00am - went to Sleep.


5:10am - The Puke Party Begins (Every 5-10 mins a wave of dry heaves and bile expelling with HEAVY cold sweats and uncontrollable shaking at times).

8:00am - Had to call off of work, there was no way I was going anywhere.

12:30pm - The nausea subsides and I can finally get some rest without vomiting.

1:30pm - I decide to get out of bed to get some hydration and cell salts. My urine was brown, and my body was shaken to its core. My abs hurt and I was tired from only 2-4 hours of sleep.

1:45pm - I call up my work and tell them I'm feeling better and go in.

2:00pm - At work I try to eat some food but its slow eating, the nausea still creeps up, I think its more mental than anything at this point.

3:00pm - I'm feeling really tired now and cannot wait to get home, kind of regretting going into work but it was a good choice to do so. Got some things done.



It is only good for use on the skin or in a diffuser.

I did not experience any type of 'Trip' or Dream enhancement, this was most likely due to my vomit party. I am sure this herb has powers to be unlocked and I will tread a lot more carefully with it. This was a wake up call for me.

**I made a massive medical blunder, a learning experience for sure**

I never puked like that in my entire 28 years spent in this body, although I did get my stomach pumped at the age of 5, this probably was a similar experience. I was in my shower thinking I was dying. I didn't think my body had that much bile to give.

Blessings to all, be safe with herbs or else you can get your ass kicked.
