21 in oral Cacti - T. bridgesii (tea)
21 Inches Bridgesii Rocked Me

Drank tea made from 21" of mature Bridgesii that was aged in darkness for 4 months. The tea went down smooth.

Spent about 2 hours in the backyard watching birds and enjoying the outdoors while the cactus built up. Ended up laying down in the hammock as the trip kicked in. Watched a green bird in a tree from the hammock. Landscapers showed up and did work in the neighbor's yard. What a ruckus! The birds all looked worried, especially the green bird. Had to go inside to escape the ruckus.

Everything was melting. Could barely see straight. Had to lay down in the bed. The dog came over to check on me. Picked the dog up and put her on the bed. She laid down next to me and didn't move, except for licking my arm over and over again. Felt peaceful and safe with the dog there.

I was broken down to a very basic level. Vision was blurry. Couldn't really formulate words. Came to the realization that all I could do was lay there and let the dog lick my arm. Time was immeasurable. Minutes were hours. Hours flew by. I remained wiped out, nonverbal, motionless on the bed. The whole day passed by. Then it was night. Laid awake in bed all night.

Eventually came to feel an extreme level of peacefulness and acceptance of just being. The sun rose and I went outside and walked around the backyard. Things were starting to feel more normal. But was still tripping. Stayed in that halfway state until about 1pm. Then became extremely tired. Had to sleep. Slept a deep sleep. Woke up the next morning feeling terrific. Focused. Clear. Alive. Full of energy. Felt that way for about a week straight. Then slowly normalcy returned.

Bridgesii is powerful. It rocked me. I will respect it forever.
