The following is my experience with a cold water extraction of MHRB. To the method described by David Aardvark under 'Mimosa Active Without MAOI?' I decided to add a step to avoid drinking the bitter liquid. The added step was to pour the liquid into a food dehydrator on a plastic 'fruit leather' tray and evaporate all the liquid. The initial extraction involved 3 pulls using roughly 60 - 65 grams of MHRB and 300 ml cold water for each pull. To this I also added a little leftover liquid from a previous 3rd pull. The end result after drying was just under 26 grams. The material was scrapped into a ziplock bag where it eventually formed into a hard red rock.

The MHRB was supplemented by 50 ml of Green Dragon, prepared as follows. One gram of cannabis was placed in a small beaker with 30 ml of Everclear. Heated just until the start of boiling in a microwave, the beaker was removed and the alcohol was decanted into another container. This was repeated 3 more times with fresh Everclear. Since a little alcohol is lost in the process, the end result was approx. 100 ml (enough for 2 people).

The day of consumption started at a friends house around 5:30 pm. I brought the 'supplies'. He had been drinking beer before I arrived. The red MHRB rock was weighed and divided roughly in half. The pieces were hard and would stick to my teeth when bitten. They had to be fairly small to swallow and even then they didn't go down very easily. They still retained the bitter taste but at least it could be chased with a beverage. My friend ate roughly 7 grams before we left his house and I maybe only had 4 - 5 g. My friend drank some of his Green Dragon before we left but I needed to stop and get something to add it to. I think we left his house around 6:15 or so.

On our way to a block party I stopped for lemonade and Red Bull. To this I added 1/2 of my GD and drank it all by the time we arrived at the block party at around 7:00 pm. My friend had also consumed all of his GD by the time we arrived. Once at the block party I got food and another lemonade to which I added the rest of my GD. After eating my food and drinking some of my lemonade I realized I had forgotten my MHRB in the car and had to walk back to get it. I'm thinking it was 8:00 pm by the time I got back. My main objective after that was to break up the remaining pieces of my MHRB dose and consume them. I got most of it down with the exception of some smaller pieces and crumbs. I later discovered (after weighing what was left) that I had consumed about 11.2 grams of the hard, rock like material. It was about 8:30 at this time.

It was on a trip to get beer for my friend that it first hit me. It happened so suddenly that my first reaction was to turn around for fear I wouldn't make it back. I managed to get the beer and get back to him before I started to feel the full effects. I was sitting on a concrete block outside the tent area when I began to feel heavily drugged. By then I had eaten a bratwurst and drank all my GD containing lemonade. I started to feel unwell and stood up to sit on the other side of the block facing the opposite direction. I felt momentarily sick to my stomach and threw up once, but not sure if it was the reaction to the MHRB or just from being so stoned. I felt like I was stating to lose consciousness and wasn't sure what would happen to me if I did. My friend wasn't as affected by the MHRB because of his smaller dose but he was much more intoxicated from the effects of alcohol than I was. During the first peak I felt like I was temporarily lost and I don't remember much. Gradually I started coming out of it and realizing where I was and what had happened. For I awhile I was just really high and glad that peak was behind me.

Suddenly I started feeling more and more disoriented until I was gone again, but this time I remembered more. I felt like I was in a cartoonish world almost like a funhouse that I couldn't get out of. There were glimmers of thought from time to time that this would eventually pass, but there were also feelings that I was in a strange world that I could never return from. The visuals were incredible and hard to describe. Something that comes to mind are the drawings by Ralph Stedman. I was sitting outside but I felt like I was inside a strange place maybe looking down a hallway. I would have to say it was a complete and utter break from reality. I could hear sounds but I didn't feel that I could communicate with anyone around me. Considering that this was the result of a water extraction of MHRB without the use of any MAOI inhibitor, I never would have believed I could get so utterly and completely removed from anything familiar.

Eventually I felt myself slowly returning to reality. I was still very high, but I was starting to know where I was and who I was and who I was with. We eventually went inside the club around 10 pm since the music outside had ended. We stayed and watched a little until about 10:45 pm when we left for home. I was feeling pretty good by that time. I hadn't really had all that much to drink considering how much time had passed and felt ok to drive home.

I remember telling my friend more than once earlier in the evening, 'I'm not sure how much is a good dose of this stuff, but I know how much NOT to take.' 11 grams of the rock hard material after evap. was WAY too much for me. My friend took about 7 grams and I think he wishes he would have taken more. I'm thinking 9-10 grams would be about right.

Another lesson learned for me was that this is probably best taken at home, or at least not in a social setting. Having my friend there was good, as I would not have wanted to be as stoned as I was, alone among strangers. Even my friend questioned whether or not he should call for medical help when I was really gone. It also would have been better to have someone not quite so intoxicated as a 'sitter'. There were times I was the caretaker because my friend was too drunk, and then he became the caretaker when I was too stoned. Not the best combination.
