My friend T and I had been wondering about these seeds for a while, and finally one day we bought 50 from an internet headshop. This is how our evening went.

Basically the first thing we did was the general pre night in planning, where we ended up getting lost on a mountain for four hours and then went to the local supermarket to buy several bottles of wine and a crate of beer. We headed back to Tís house and started excitedly started to prepare the seeds, which out of our excitement was done in a very basic and crude way (although this works for me). We just wrapped each of our doses in tissue and put it in a bag, then crushed them with a hammer in the back garden, we then added them to two cups of water and let them stand for about 20 minutes. When the time came we both drained our murky green/brown mixture seeds an all, which in my opinion tastes revolting, but is WELL worth it J. We then sat in the living room watching a football match with Tís Dad, waiting for them to kick in, and drinking our various alcoholic drinks, feeling only mild stomach discomfort.

After about an hour and a half we started to finally feel the effects, and it happened so subtly that Iím not quite sure of when or what happened when it did. What I do know is that we spent most of the night marvelling at how the seeds had altered our perception, we did a range of random activities that we wouldnít think of in any normal situation, other than playing the guitar a lot which is one of our favourite pastimes anyway. I distinctly remember at one point we were both in the kitchen and I decided to sort of run from one side to the other repeatedly bouncing off the walls, which I found to be extremely satisfying, and only extended the grin on my face.

Another thing that struck me about the amazing effect of these seeds, was my intense appreciation of nature

, as once it had gone dark shortly after our kitchen fun, I had found one of those gel masks in the freezer that you wear to help with a hangover, and since it was bright blue put it on, then I went into the back garden (without telling anyone) and began to start wandering around. The garden seemed so much bigger than usual, there is a weeping willow tree there that hangs so low you have to duck to avoid the leaves, and I spent around an hour and a half blissfully wandering around it like it was a walk through a very peaceful wood, and by the time T had realised I wasnít inside with him, he came out to find me standing in a miniature patch of earth between his and his neighbours fences, I kept telling him how this tiny piece of land (about a foot wide and three feet long) was free and wasnít owned by anyone, unlike pretty much everything in society, needless to say I found it of great significance to me and really enjoyed the feeling of elation knowing I was standing in a free spot, which probably was owned by one or the other anyway.

After finally returning inside we decided to breakout the musical instrument, so we each got our guitars and started to play song after song, which being a happy thing to do usually was pure bliss in euphoria that night. Then I got another twinge of stomach ache so I went to get a glass of water, I drank half of it down and suddenly started to taste blood, but being quite inebriated I was unable to locate the cause, so I kept drinking and tasting blood, the taste of blood was making my nausea even worse so I decided to stop and then eventually realised that the glass I was drinking from had a crack that had cut my lip very slightly, but the damage was done and the taste of blood set of a spiral of nausea which ended up with me vomiting. For about 3 minutes before I finally threw up. I felt terrible, then decided to allow the inevitable and went to the toilet, after I had finished I felt even better than I did before and my euphoria peaked tremendously.

We spent the rest of the night monged out on a sofa and a beanbag chair listening to extremely mellow music that I cant quite remember, and after about an hour of that went to bed at around 2-3 am. I found the camp bed EXTREMELY comfortable and fell asleep easily while watching the flickering light of the video player. The next day we got up after a good 12 hours of sleep and felt great, if not a little tired, but I must warn we did it again and got up at 7am the next day, which left me the most tired I have ever been in my life.

On summary, to me it was one of the best experiences of my life, and all since that has yielded the same results, I also found that the environment makes a huge difference to the results of the high, for me it was a peaceful and slightly unfamiliar place that gets the best from them.
