Had to Skip Work
Heimia salicifolia
by Doctor Ugs
Citation:   Doctor Ugs. "Had to Skip Work: An Experience with Heimia salicifolia (exp82008)". May 1, 2019.

14-28 g oral Heimia salicifolia (tea)


I bought an ounce online. I heard it would make me hear differently, make my sight go all 70's porno, etc.

I just got tired after a couple hours, didn't wait around for effects. I just felt WAY too tired from it. I had to work the next day, strenuous Post Office work.

When I woke up, EVERY muscle ached, my HEART, arms, legs, even my eyeballs and tongue. I overdid it.
I overdid it.
I had read it was a mild anti-cholinergenic. I figured I HAD to sick out, or I'd have a heart attack. I felt like an 80 year old man. WORST drug I have ever taken.

It ended costing me over 80 bucks in the end, missing work and all. I'll probably never take it again, unless it's less.

I was naive and stuff, didn't think it would be so bad taking that much.

[Reported Dose: "1/2 to 1 ounce made into tea"]
