DOSE:
5 g insufflated Virola elongata (tar / resin)

BODY WEIGHT: 180 lb


I bought some of this stuff (Virola Theidora red resin) after watching Bruce Parry have a horrible time on it on the telly. As he's usually a bit wussy about the stuff he takes I wasn't put off by the pain he seemed to be in.

Attempt 1:
I tried snorting it as I would cocaine. It was incredibly hard and unpleasant and my nostrils became congested and full of brown snot almost immediately. So instead I tried smoking some on tin foil, which was unbearable and burnt my lungs, like how I imagine smoking pepper would feel. Eventually I managed to force another 2g up there, physically unable to get any more inside me, my eyes watering and nothing happened other than feeling like I'd snorted pepper
nothing happened other than feeling like I'd snorted pepper
. Horrible, and with no payoff.

Attempt 2:
I knew what to expect and that I needed to do a lot, so I laid out 3g in one enormous line, and made myself a wide 'blowpipe' out of card and jammed it up my nose. We were back from a night out on Peruvian Torch (cactus) and my friend was egging me on to do it for fun. So I snorted pretty much the lot in one enormous go. Immediately I had an intense pain up my nose, down my upper spine, in my eye which swelled up, closed up, watered and went red, then that whole side of my brain hurt. It was horrific. And if there were any hallucinations, they were far too slight for me to notice in such pain. My friend joked that I looked like I'd had a stroke down that side of my face. It was the most horrible thing I have ever done to myself in my entire life!

Conclusion:
Awful, awful, awful. No hallucinations, just pain. I'm told that it's done with 1/4 edible lime, but unless that changes the chemical composition or something I really can't see how it will make any difference. I don't want any more of that up my nose.

Got 5g left though, might try and smoke that somehow...
