Both Relaxed and Amped Up
Citation:   z zilch. "Both Relaxed and Amped Up: An Experience with Datura (exp91039)". Jun 29, 2018.

1 seed oral Datura (seeds)
1 seed of Datura

After reading all the horrid reports on Datura effects, I've decided to be extremely careful. Probably overly so. Anyway, I am starting very small: first I ingested 1/3 of a seed. Nothing. Then the other 2/3. Nothing.

Last night I ate one full seed. Today, I believe I finally felt some effects, though minimal. In general, I just felt very weird. Don't know how else to describe it. I felt slightly loopy, bodywise. I felt an increase in energy, and seemed to be able to think more clearly than usual. I felt paradoxically more relaxed and also more amped up than usual. No blatent hallucinations, though words and other things did seem to waver and shimmer quite a bit. I went to work. Oddly, I felt more confident than usual in talking to superiors. Usually I stammer and feel fairly insecure. Today I felt relaxed and even joked a little.

I was surprised that 1 seed could affect me so much more than 2/3 of a seed. I will continue to take things VERY slowly. I want to take another full seed again to see if I can verify the effects I believe myself to have experienced. And then work my way up...
