Crystal Nuciferene and other isolated alkaloids + Whisky + MJ

Set and Setting:
10:00 AM. Friday Morning; took the day off for a 'lazy' day from overstudy. The day was a sunny 67 degrees. Smoked a couple of bowls of MJ at my altar, feeling the freedom of the day. A thought floated in...'This is a good time to go into my toybox and see what's going on in there.' I purchased nuciferene crystals (Nuciferene and other isolated alkaloids) from an online vendor a few weeks ago and decided to see what this plant could show me if we were intermingled. I had a spiritual awareness of the lotus, but not of its psychoactive effects so I did some research, and found no negative experiences with it. In a couple of literary accounts, there were even hallucinogenic effects experienced. I thought, 'Since there are no negative effects found, why not try a good deal of it off the bat?'. I read that alcohol made a good solute for this solvent, and also read that this is how it was allegedly consumed in ancient Egypt. I go to the kitchen and pour approximately 2 grams of nuciferene powder into a shot glass, then a shot of whisky over it. I shwilled it around at eye level, and watched the crystals swimming.

10:10 AM..... Down the hatch. Quite bitter. Unique taste with the whisky.

10:12 AM.....I go back to my room, open all the windows all the way, and begin to do some yoga asanas. I want to be somewhat centered to get something out of this.

Effects:
10:30 AM......I feel a sympathetic nervous system rush, which is felt strongly because I was in such a parasympathetic state from the asanas. I felt the energy of the plant enter my heart chakra, and begin to brew its energy there. I continue the asanas to attempt to balance my nervous system. Its caffiene type effect overpowers my attempt, but the attempt does make a valuable difference.

11:00 AM ....I told my girlfriend that I'd meet her for lunch at 11:50, so I leave the house and stop at the drug store on the way to pick up some camera pictures. I go into the store, and I notice that everything is brighter and I'm light headed, like I'm deprived of blood to my head. I also notice that I'm having tremors throughout my body. I leave the store and start over to my girlfriend.

11:20 AM The plant is now showing its full effects to me. I am dizzy, and my heart is beating arrhythmically and slightly harder than usual. This is not the difficult part. I go back home and call my gf and leave a message that I'm not feeling well and cant make it to lunch. All the way home, my bowels are in rapid peristalsis causing me to fart violently. I need to make it home before I loosen my bowels all over my car seat. The plant now begins to do what I call, 'talk' to me. In one instance I realized what I need to change in my life for it to be balanced, but there is an overpowering guilt, shame, paranoia, and anxiety that is accompanying this. This was the worst part of the experience for me, and the abdominal pain and mental anguish went on for hours. I think that I consumed too much of this sacred plant essence.

11:35 I make it home just in time to release my bowels and I begin to get very dizzy on the toilet when bear down. At this point I really feel overpowered by my distorted mind. I am paranoid and my self esteem is lower than it has ever been. I have only tried cocaine once, but it feels like I went straight to coming down after a long night of rails, and my heart is beating fast. I go out of the bathroom and start to concentrate on breathing....long and slow. I call my girlfriend and tell her I dont feel well, and she replies, 'I'm coming over.' I think that she hears something in my voice that tells her to come over.

12:00 My gf arrives and I first tell her what the plant has taught me, to help calm her down, and then tell her I feel paranoid and my self esteem is low and I feel like I'm going to faint. She take care of me for awhile, and makes some squash soup that makes me feel a little better, but I'm doubled over on the couch in between trips to the bathroom to empty my bowels.

12:30 My friend comes over to jam guitar. My music is foul, and I feel like I'm turning green. The music isn't even helping. I guess I have to just wait this one out. Hours go by and I'm just doubled over on the couch feeling hellacious. It finally begins to ware off.

5:30 I smoke a bowl of MJ, and start to feel a little better. Thank g-d for the dank. I fall asleep at 6:30 and wake up a few hours later with a crampy stomach.

Next Day: My bowels feel clean like they are clearer than they ever have been. I have no hang over, and I feel normal.
