BODY WEIGHT: 70 kg


The weed in my area has been dry for a while, and this day I just really wanted something to smoke. I've tried a number of 'legal' highs in the past, with varying success. Of course, nothing seems to beat good old dope.

After a bit of research I decided cloves seemed interesting and would be *very* easy to get hold of. So I went to the supermarket and sure enough 22g of dried whole cloves for a little under 3, which seemed cheap to me compared to any other 'high', but it's expensive compared to yer average herbs ;)

Anyway I ground about 10 of the 'nails' up and rolled it up like a joint and smoked it with a glass of wine and chilled to some music.

Half way through and I'm thinking 'wow this is great', I had a slight tingling numbness on my lips and I was starting to actuly feel a little light headed. It had a plesent taste and aroma, and was quite easy on the lungs like a menthol cigarette.

Half an hour later this began to wane, and feeling I had nothing to lose, I rolled another joint about twice the size of the first one. It was very similar to the first, with the numbness reaching my tounge.

Not bad at all, woke up the next morning feeling fine. I've still got loads left, I guess this will be my first stop for a legal high in future. I tried eating a couple earlier but the taste is far to strong, so smoking seems to be the best way.

I'm not really sure what to say about the dose, 10 - 20 seemed to work fine. I'm yet to find anyone who says to is particularly dangerous, just do some reaserch first.
