After a lot of research I dry-fried 5 seeds until they popped (which took about 10 minutes), removed husks with my nails, ground the seeds in a Mortar and Pestle, mixed in 1/10 Calcium Hydroxide; which is a smaller amount than that in most other reports but I hoped this would reduce the burning sensation, topped up with warm water to cover the liquid, it was more like muddy water than a sludge, stirred well then put in the oven on the lowest heat to dry out. Once dried I ground the powder and scrapped it out onto a folded sheet of A4.
Now this is where my Yopo-seed delivery system was unique, I wanted to ensure I received all the powdered Yopo at once without relying on someone else, so I took the nozzle off an air-blaster aerosol and attached a Biro-pen with its insides removed, with nib-end part just slipping onto the aerosol bare-nozzle, but applying downwards pressure gives a good blast of air into the empty pen, then I put the Yopo powder into the wide end by sliding the powder down the crease in the A4 paper.
I took a slow deep breaths, put the pen up one nostril, closed my other nostril with my finger, then pressed the pen down hard onto the aerosol for less than a second-bang all the powder-delivered! Now aerosol abuse is dangerous, but for the one-second blast, I doubt it would have any ill effects. The burning was not as bad as people make out, or maybe its because I only used a small amount of lime?

After just a few seconds I could feel my whole body tingling, I might like to add here that I have already consumed 2 cans of strong beer (1 hour before) to counteract the vasoconstriction problems others had faced. I had a bucket ready to throw up in, but I did not feel sick at all. As soon as I felt the peanut butter like mash run down my throat I coughed it up and spat it into the bucket--that may be the reason so many have nausea problems--when they swallow the yopo.
Then I felt an head pressure, like an headache but different as it seemed to be in the centre of my head, I closed my eyes and the speed at which my head was becoming numb was slightly unsettling, first top, then down, past cheeks until I could no longer feel my head, then the CEV started-fast rotating 2d pink swirls on a Black backdrop, it was comfortable though, during the whole time I could think clearly, I did not leave my body.
The really strong visuals came in around 5 minutes, that's when the CEV's looked as real as a movie, solid geometric patterns of all colors, moving liquid-like, with textual patterns in a unfathomable font, the detail was hard to focus on, a couple of times it got so intense I opened my eyes to relax-then I noticed the visuals subside but take on a new form with reality, my curtains were no longer bronze but glowed with a fiery intensity-like they were on fire, my color pallet was like it had been shifted in photo-shop, white walls were patterned with swirls of colored dots, my feet looked cartoon colored-Blues and Purples. Then I closed my eyes again-bang into the geometric universe once more, faster like I was being pulled into the geometric soup, feeling almost part of the pattern.
At around 15 minutes I blew my seed-blocked nose, 15 minutes was enough for this first time, lay back and over the next couple of hours had the most peaceful sleep I have ever encountered, though I did not have encounters with N-N DMT aliens or the like, I did feel different, like a weight had been lifted from my body, it gave my mind more clarity-like a mind enema for want of a better phrase.
I had full control of my body and mind whilst experiencing strong CEV and open eye to some extent, the Calcium Hydroxide is a must (I had tried without it and it does not work).
I think Yopo has the right balance of 5-MAO-DMT, N-N-DMT and Bufo to make me trip hard without it becoming scary as say pure 5-MAO-DMT or pure N-N-DMT. The build up is akin to an headache rather than a rocket-ship high of say Srooms-but the advantage is I could experience a lucid memorable trip I will never forget.
