I was apprehensive at first about trying this material, as I am an experienced tripper but a friend of mine seriously hurt himself on the same seeds. Although to his credit, I don't think he knew to scrape the fuzzy gunk off the seeds first.
Chopped the gunk off of 12 seeds, then mashed the remainder of the seeds and placed them in a shallow glass bowl, filling just enough to cover them with fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Placed this bowl into a larger one with hot water to expedite the extraction.
After one hour, I strained the juice through a coffee filter, mixing the lemon juice with a cup of OJ. Tasting the straight lemon juice I could immediately tell by the very astringent bitter taste that it had soaked up some interesting alkaloids! In fact the bitterness was still apparent even when mixed in with the OJ.
Taking each bitter mouthful, I'd let it sit for about a minute, slowly squeezing the juice down my throat. Within 30 minutes I had the first clear signs of intoxication, as the lights started their LSD-familiar 'tinkerbell dance,' as I so lovingly call it.
Feeling a bit uneasy and slightly queasy I decided to lay down for a cat nap. I fell asleep and slept a good seven hours. I just woke up and can honestly say that this material beats the hell out of OTC sedatives for sleep!
Even now though, I feel its effects in the background. My mood has improved significantly since before I fell asleep. Perhaps this is the lingering LSA 'plastifying' my neurons.
+1, with definite possibility for a repeat at a larger dose.
