5 seeds oral H.B. Woodrose (seeds)
  3 seeds oral H.B. Woodrose (seeds)


About a week ago I purchased some H.B. woodrose seeds from my local headshop. I always read up on everything prior to trying it out, and after reading about these, I decided 8 seeds for $10 was a great deal for a test.

I took 5 seeds immediately after I got home. I popped them in my mouth, chewed them up real good, and swallowed them. I had an empty stomach. I sat down to watch the movie 10,000 B.C. I watched the entire movie with no effects, aside from nausea. I felt like if I moved too much, I would vomit. So I just laid around. I took the last 3 seeds the same way, right after the movie. About an hour later, still no effects (going on nearly 3 hours now) I was hungry, so I ate an ice cream cone. As soon as I was done eating, I was tripping HARD! The trip itself is very hard to describe, because I can't find words to say it. Details of everything stuck out at me. I stared at a pill for about 20 minutes, reading the inscription on it, breaking it and looking at all the different shapes and designs of the 'crumbs.' I was extremely exhausted, so I decided to go to bed. Bad idea... My whole body was tingly, and each movement sent shivers through my entire body. Huge waves of shivers. My thoughts were very deep, and I felt a unique intuition to my own consience. I laid in bed, exhausted, but unable to sleep because my mind was moving way too fast. I had feelings of being inside my own body, inside my heart as it was pumping blood. Somehow I eventually fell asleep, probably some time around 4-5 a.m. I woke periodically, still tripping, about every 2 hours. I finally woke up for good around 1:30 p.m. Completely exhausted, and somewhat hung-over. Still tripping somewhat as well. My last dose of seeds was at about 9 p.m. So well beyond the 12 hours suggested. I made the best of my day, feeling sluggish, and still feeling waves of nausea and euphoria about once an hour. Not something I really enjoyed, and definitely not something I'll take again.
