H.B. Woodrose Seeds
Citation: Xerxes. "6 hour sickness: An Experience with H.B. Woodrose Seeds (exp5430)". Erowid.org. Mar 4, 2001. erowid.org/exp/5430
Here is my experience with HBWR. I obtained a packet of seeds from an online botanical company, and proceeded to scrape them clean, and ingest them by chewing them the best I could, and washing them down with a cup of water. The taste was a light, nutty flavor, and not specifically bad.
The first effect I noticed, was an increased 'brightness' to everything. Colors were enhanced, and I coulden't wipe the smile off my face. I have no experimented with LSD or mushrooms, but the effects were similar to descriptions of those substances. Mostly, the effects were mild. Soon, however, I noticed my stomach was feeling quite upset indeed. After about and hour, I became VERY ill. I vomited about seven times over the next few hours.
The high took a turn for the worse. Insted of a happy brightening of my surrondings, I was overcome by a terrible feeling of anxiety and urgency, like the feeling you get when your in deep trouble, or before a scary ride at the amusement park. this lasted throughout the trip. I felt hot and sweaty, with an itchy tingling feeling all over my body, and inside my throat and nasal cavity. I slept for about 3 hours, and woke up several times to vomit.
Overall, I can only describe this experience as being poisoned. Any high I had, or any interesting effects can be achieved better by drinking drano. I will never take this substance again, I was in a state of misery for about 6 hours. Please, if you must try this, use a LOW dose, this will lessen your pain later.
