This report is just a warning about the dosage of datura stramonium and there is no recommended dosage safe for the average person.


me, a hefty 20 yrs of age, my brother (Ronny) and our friend (Jonny) went up snowboarding for a weekend and stayed at a friend's place (Just us 3).

The main purpose wasn't really to snowboard, it was to ingest the datura stramonium seeds I had ordered online a month ago which I was eager to test after having read reports.

After reading of the many strange accounts, I decide the safest thing is to take no more than 40 seeds, no matter WHAT. Well, its about 2pm and I take my 40 seeds. I tell Ronny and Jonny to take the car keys, hide em somewhere, hide the knives, get monopoly ready, don't let me guzzle down Jim Beam if I'm fuckin crazed later... and begin.

So first I swallow the 40 seeds and wash it down wish some rum and coke... I wait about an hour.... Nothing at all. I start drinking more rum and coke hoping that will jumpstart the trip...nothing. Then I figure I'm gonna have more, Ronny and Jonny tried to persuade me not to, but I'm stubborn, and figure I can control myself anyway and take the rest of em (80 more). So I wait around about another hour or so... and now you all probably think 'ohh shit, this guy just fucked himself' but no! No pupil dilation whatsoever, no hallucinations, nothing but some dry mouth. I am still trying to recover from broken heart disease... drugs let me down man!

So, the point of the story is, everyone is different, and there is no way to calculate exactly what a proper amount is to ingest. I seem to have a high tolerance to things like alcohol and marijuana, so if you're a lightweight, don't think you're superman and eat em like Nerds... And I've done mushrooms once in my life a couple months ago and had an eighth (1/8) without hallucinations...although my brain was definitely on steroids. I've also tried salvia once with some 'lightweights' and ok, I was laughing my ass off about absolutely nothing for a minute, but these guys were in a different dimension talkin about how they could see warp holes and crap... so know your tolerance before doing something stupid like potentially harming others and/or yourself.

I was as prepared as ever to take this stuff, with 2 sitters upstate in an empty house without any authoritative figures within twenty miles and nothing happened. And because nothing happened whatsoever, I will try at least 150-200 seeds or maybe mess with the leaves or flowers if I can get a hold of em.

Tip: start off small and work your way up, you can always have more but once you've had too much, there's no going back baby!
