Lately, I have been quite curious to try out some new things, preferably in the natural range. A close friend of mine suggested I try out a few things and Hawaiian Baby Woodrose was one of those recommendations. Through my history with psychedelic substances, I have tried psilocybin, LSD, Salvia Divinorum, and MDMA (if that counts). I love them all, but since the quality and quantity is horrible where I live, I have learned to use other resources in order to enlighten myself when I have the time to do it.
I ordered a total of 50 seeds from an online herb/seed store and got them in on a Monday. That night I told myself it would probably be better to wait until tomorrow since I was so tired. Tuesday rolls around, and I get off work at around 12:00am. I'm fairly excited to try it out, but I didn't feel like staying up until 7:00am in the morning tripping my balls off. I came to a conclusion: eat two seeds before I go to bed and take my melatonin.
Well, I ate the two seeds, felt a little rumble in my stomach, and took my daily herbs and vitamins (vitamin C, Ginseng, Spurlina, St. Johns Wart), and then my melatonin. I always alternate with my melatonin after every night. I go from 6mg to 9mg to 6mg and so forth. Before I passed out, I noticed things were getting a little stranger than usual, but nothing really dramatic. My white room seemed a bit brighter, and the TV was a little louder than normal. I slept for about seven hours straight without and disturbances. I woke up and noticed things were a bit more vivid, my mood was positive, and I was ready to get going for work.
Work was excellent that day. I was in fun loving mood, my surroundings were rich in color, and I was wide awake without any stomach troubles whatsoever. After work I ventured into my room and smoked a bowl of salvia divinorum to calm myself, and went a long playing my videogame for about an hour. I pondered to myself: if I repeated what I did last night, will it happen again? I ate three more seeds that night. My stomach acted up a little more than what it did the previous night, but nothing really serious. I woke up the next morning in almost the same manner. Work that day went along the same way it did yesterday. I enjoyed my time at work and loved being around the people there.
For one whole week now I have been taking about 2-4 seeds every night before I've gone to bed, and I have been waking up in a great mood. I'm not exactly sure whether prolonged use of HBW is dangerous to the internal organs, but I have not noticed any side effects whatsoever. I have yet to try it while awake, so I'm a bit curious on what will happen if I do that.
