DOSE:
12 g oral Heimia salicifolia (extract)

BODY WEIGHT: 185 lb


So I have been trying to find a way to come down after psychedelic trips that does not involve alcohol or weed. I ordered some heimia salicifolia more commonly known as sinicuichi from the internet. I boiled about 12g, strained, reboiled the leaves, strained, tossed leaves, combined the two extracts, and simmered to about a half of a cup.

About a half hour after ingesting I started feeling a bit nauseous so I put on some ATB and laid down. A bit of relaxation came over me and the highs in the music sounded like they were coming from somewhere else... like under the table that my speakers were on. I at first thought something was under there chewing on a cable or something.

About 1.5hrs after ingesting I started feeling very sleepy but nothing more than that so I went to bed (around 2am.) I know I was having some strange dreams but I cant remember any of them. I woke up about 6am to use the bathroom and could barely pull the blanket off and get out of bed. It took about 5 mins to baby step 20 feet because my knees, feet, quads and especially calfs felt like I just ran a marathon yesterday. As I was standing there pissing I noticed that my jaw and temples hurt. My throat felt swollen and sore and my nose was full of hard baked on mucus. I tried to drink some water from my water bottle which has a straw and noticed that I hardly had the strength to pull the liquid through the straw. When I finally did get some it was difficult to swallow. I laid back down and noticed that every inch of my skin was sensitive to touch... in a not so good way. Kinda felt like chaffing. My hands and fingers felt like I had been clenching them in the tightest fist I could make for hours and hours and I finally just released. I just wiggled my toes and they have the same sensation most notably at the top of the foot. Even typing this now creates pain. My wrists feel like they have been forced beyond normal range of motion.

All this aside the worst part is the difficulty I'm having breathing. Short shallow breaths are the only thing that does not create pain.

When I first woke up I didn't have the strength to take a deep breath. Now I'm feeling a bit better but if I force a deep breath I can feel my solar plexus knot up. I feel my back and chest tighten up allowing me to sense every rib. OK by now I'm sure you get the picture.

Mentally I feel fine besides the anxiety created from my physical pain. I did notice that I'm having an extra hard time spelling. Some words just don't look right. I had ran this through ms words spell checker and found tons of mistakes.

I'm just glad that all I took was the 12g because if this were much more intense I don't think I could breath or summon the strength to get help.
