Past drug usage:
I have used caffeine, alcohol, nitrous, mushrooms, cannabis, LSD, MDMA, amphetamine, ketamine, ayahuasca and hawaiian baby woodrose seeds. Some time ago I had a prescription for 50mg sertraline per day for my moderate depression. I never smoked a cigarette in my life.

Current drug usage:
I drink small amounts of alcohol (12ml ethanol) almost daily (5-6 times a week). I also vaporize cannabis three times a week, take kratom once a week and mushrooms once a month. I stopped using chemical drugs, including sertraline, some months ago after I met my current (and first) girlfriend.

Preparation:
A couple months ago I bought 200g of kratom (a mix of green vein strains), which I filled into size “00” gelatin capsules with a capsule machine. I also bought a large supply of capsules filled with turmeric and some black pepper for kratom potentiation. Some days before this experience I acquired some high quality cannabis sativa and pre-grinded it so I could simply put it in my vaporizer. I once bought a package of 500 datura stramonium seeds, which I have not used until this experience. I have read in an online forum that a small amount of datura could potentiate kratom, so I decided to try this combination with a few seeds. I know from previous experiences that grapefruit juice can also magnify the effects of kratom, but I had none at hand that day.

Set and Setting:
It was a typical Friday evening and I was in a good mood because I had two free days ahead of me without any obligations. I am satisfied with my job, I love my girlfriend and I have no family problems, so I had nothing to worry about. I spent nearly the whole duration of the experience in my rather large bedroom.

Experience:
20:30 I swallow a capsule of turmeric like I always do an hour before taking kratom.

I also chew and swallow five datura stramonium seeds. I talk to my girlfriend on the phone for a while, and then I walk downstairs and have a little chat with my father.

21:30 Back in my room, I put ten capsules of kratom (around 8g) into a glass of water so they dissolve roughly at the same time and drink all of it before the capsules start falling apart. In the meantime, I read a book (Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh) to kill some time. I also drink a light alcoholic beverage (8ml ethanol).

22:00 I put around 0,3g ground cannabis in my vaporizer and set the temperature to 185 degrees Celsius. I watch an episode of Family Guy on Netflix while vaping the herb. As the effects of the THC take hold, I also start to feel the opioid properties of kratom, like a tingling sensation all over my body, itchy skin, shallow breathing and euphoria.

22:30 I switch off my TV and just lay on my back in my bed. Soon I enter a hypnagogic state where I drift in and out of consciousness with vivid visions. Unlike psychedelic experiences, where the things I see are made up of fractals and other geometry, the scenes I witness in this state look real and “normal” without any unusual colors or pattern, just like in a dream

. At one point I see an island somewhere in the ocean with a beautiful beach, which is then replaced by other imaginary locations I have never seen before in my life.

0:30 I gradually return to sobriety as the THC in my body gets metabolized, however, I can still feel the effects of the kratom. I have no difficulties falling asleep, the next day I wake up refreshed and full of energy with no hangover.

Conclusions:
It has been a long time since I last experienced nodding (that hypnagogic state) on kratom. I think the datura seeds helped me achieve that state of consciousness. I am looking forward to trying this combination again, maybe with only three seeds next time. I do not want to use any more seeds, as I have great respect for datura and other scopolamine-containing plants and I try to avoid having a real delirium.
