1.71 g oral Turbina corymbosa (seeds)
My First Threshold Experience of Ololiqui

Ololi˙qui are also known scientifically as Turbina corymbosa or Rivea corymbosa

I had taken 18 seeds 10 days prior to this as investigation at a safe level, as there is little reliable information on dosage on the net. I had noticed something, but nothing major so I next dosed to the same baseline as I use with Morning Glories (MG).


Exactly 60 seeds, massing in at 1.71g (I have a scale accurate to 2 decimal places).


I counted up 60 seeds of the Ololi˙qui. I ground the seeds in an electric grinder for about 15 to 20 seconds and put the powder into 3 gel capsules.

I use 60 seeds of MG as a baseline experience barometer to compare experiences from different preparations. 60 MG seeds gives me a minimal threshold experience and I use this to compare to other preparations safely.

I did not drink alcohol or smoke tobacco during the exercise and had not drunk alcohol the night before. I had not taken any over the counter medications or other drugs for at least 2 weeks prior. I take no prescription medication for about 6 months, only paracetamol, aspirin and Ventolin (asthma inhaler) for general treatment of headaches and flu.

Mindset and setting

I was at home in comfortable surroundings and planning on doing some admin work while listening to music. My mindset was relaxed and prepared to do some normal office administration work activities.

The experience

I consumed all 3 capsules just before lunch at about 11:30am with water. 45 minutes later later I ate lunch.

After 45 minutes from capsule ingestion I started perceiving a similar shift in consciousness. It peaked quickly up to about 2:30 pm (about 2 hrs later) and then plateaued only for about 30 minutes and then rapidly subsided, with minimal hints up to 9:30 pm. The feeling was very similar to that of MG.

There was slight discomfort int the abdomen. No vomiting or nausea. I experienced it as more potent than MGs by about 1.2x to 1.5 times, and even more so on a mass comparison than seed count. There was less physical discomfort, less of the burning sensation that I get with MG sometimes on my skin.

While I came up I sat at my computer working admin and listening to ambient chill music. I noticed a definite change in musical appreciation and a drifting of into mental spheres. I was losing track of my surroundings and getting absorbed into the music, very dreamy and pleasant with some mild anxiety normally associated with MG and LSD-like compounds.

I noticed slight pattern hallucinations in fine patterns such as carpet and fabric. Very nice to enjoy music, no heavy sensations on the body, very slight lethargy and I was able to interact with society normally at this level. When needed to interact with people I was able to pull myself easily out of the trance and perform normally. It was a little above threshold level and enjoyable.

It was a good experience for me and I will do more. It was a slightly better experience than MGs but very similar effects. Its effects are similar to LSD, Mushrooms, and MG. But this is just a threshold experience.

I will repeat with a larger dose later. I would estimate an approximate dose for proper mild trip will be about 4 to 5 grams or roughly 150 to 170 seeds. I will dose around this level next time.
