A found out about Hawaiian baby wood-rose online so I decided to order some and try it. A friend of mine was also keen to try them see met up one weekend and prepared for our trip. I'm definitely glad I ordered these seeds because they give you one amazing trip which I will definitely be trying again soon.

2:00pm - I prepared a tea for us with a total of 20 seeds in it. We both drank half, making a total of 10 seeds each. We both agreed that it made our stomach feel a little queasy, and also inebriated in a newly unexplainable way.

2:55pm - However, we decided we wanted more. I then proceeded to eat 5 more seeds. It tasted somewhat like chewing on popcorn seeds which didn't taste too bad. My friend ate 10 more seeds. We held the mush under our tongues and could feel almost immediate effects. Very soon we were both definitely tripping out.

3:45 - We both noticed that our eyes had now nearly completely dilated. It was as if I had just awoken and turned on a bright light. Our eyes were almost completely black which looked pretty cool. The high was also intensifying. I find myself rubbing the side of my face on my desk because it felt particularly good. My friend watches curiously with widened eyes and a big grin.

4:20pm - I have completely lost sense of space and time. It is as if time and space have collided and broken into tiny pieces. My spatial perceptions are completely gone. Down at my legs and it is as if they extend for miles. I feel as if I am somehow drifting out of my body and merging with my adjacent environment. The walls and floors begin rippling like when a stone is dropped in still water. The house itself seems to pulsate with energy. I feel as if I have become aware that my mind and body are two separate things.

5:00pm -Everything seems funny. I cannot help but laugh when my friend attempts to talk to me. He is tripping balls and so am I. We both agree that we have become filled with a sense of elation, similar to when taking ecstasy. We sit and play video games and it almost feels as if we are really IN the game, it was awesome.

6:00pm - I feel as if my face is droopy and melting. I cannot help but play with my face. It feels as if my face stretches like play-dough when I pull and tug at it. I suck on my thumb and lie down on a couch like a baby. I feel intensely satisfied. Everything seems perfect. I experienced a moment of complete, utter clarity. My spatial perceptions are still non existent. It is as if I exist in multiple locations at the same time, a very strange feeling.

6:45pm - We decide to go outside for some unknown reason. I find myself looking up at the sky, captivated by a light show display of stars. The stars appear to be blinking in synchronization almost like lights seen at a rave. The trees, while in reality probably just being blown by wind, appeared to be dancing to the movement of the stars.

8:00pm - My friend sketched out and ran home. It takes about 15mins to drive to his house. Who knows how long it took him to walk home. He left his bike at my house too. By now I was getting very tired so I decided to sleep. Sleep came very easy and I remember having some really cool dreams.

I awoke early the next day with a sense of enlightenment. The sun was still coming up so I sat on our deck eating breakfast. Everything seemed incredibly beautiful. It was like I could see light particles reflecting off every little leaf on every tree in sight, probably one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. My friend claimed he experienced this same feeling the following morning.

All in all, Hawaiian baby wood-rose was an amazing experience that I definitely want to try again.
