    LSD Blotter Art. For the record, there are 1200 tabs in this image.   Re safety, don't forget the central importance of set and setting.  #LSD #lsdtabs #lsdblotter #blotterart

    This is a strong acting benzo, which delivered more or less what I was expecting (sedation and sleep). As always with this class of drug I would stress the need for caution: benzo addiction is the real deal, as is the risk of overdose.  The samples in the photograph were imported from Sweden, shortly after clonazolam began to emerge on the open markets.    #clonazolam #benzo #benzodiazepines #sedative

    Yopo seeds, not to be confused with cebil seeds, produce a short but distinct psychedelic experience, inclusive of simple but fluid CEVs. Whilst the afterglow lasts some hours, the snorting exercise itself is extremely painful, which for myself at least acts as something as a deterrent to repeated experimentation. #yopo #yoposeeds

    First synthesised in the 1970s, AL-LAD produces similar effects to those of LSD, but via a significantly shorter ride. The implication of this, that I thoroughly enjoyed my experiences with it, is accurate. All the usual lysergic manifestations seem to be present to some degree or another, including the sense of oneness with nature, increased coloration, and the unmistakable psychedelic headspace. #allad  #lysergic #lsd #blotters

    A cousin of 2AI, on the doses I tested with I found that NM2AI produced a mild stimulation but with little edge or take-off. Its real niche was its use in combination with other chemicals, notably MPA, with which higher doses did produce a notable amphetamine-like ride. As with all stims of this nature, however, it is not one to treat lightly or underestimate from a safety perspective. #nm2ai #2ai #mpa

    Also known as African Dream Root, my experiment with ubulawu constituted one of my first forays into the botanical arena. Whilst the preparation was complex and time consuming, I actually experienced very little, or at least not enough to be certain that this wasn't a placebo effect. The issue here, I suspect, may have been that my sample was old and dry.  #ubalawu #dreamroot

    First synthesised by Alexander Shulgin, 4-HO-MET is generally considered to produce very similar effects to those of psilocybin mushrooms. Whilst I only sampled this at low doses, this was also my impression.   #4homet #shulgin

    Used traditionally as an entheogen and inebriant, Kanna is commonly insufflated or consumed as tea. I found that it was effective via both of these routes, and that it produced a sort of clean sedated intoxication, with a little disorientation at times. It was fairly short-acting (maybe a couple of hours) but left no discernible hangover.   #kanna #scoletiumtortuosum #entheogen

    MEAI was originally developed circa 2014, and was broadly presented as a replacement for alcohol. However, it only ever emerged on to the markets temporarily, as a 'legal high' research chemical. I found it to be a mild cross between MDAI and alcohol, but without the more unpleasant side effects of the latter.  #meai #MDAI #LegalHigh #ResearchChemical

    Ephedra (also known as Ma Huang) has been used as a herbal medicine in China for thousands of years. In the modern era, however, it has become well known as a source of ephedrine, which is a precursor for methamphetamine. As a stand alone botanical, taken as tea, its effects are not surprisingly of a much lower order. #ephedra #mahuang #ephedrine

    GHB (Gamma-Hydroxybutyric Acid) is a central nervous system depressant, although like alcohol it initially produces a stimulant effect at lower doses. I should stress immediately that this drug has a low effective dose to fatal dose ratio, meaning that the risk of overdose is a significant threat unless due caution is exercised.  #ghb #liquidecstasy

    As referenced in folklore, and commonly as an ingredient of witches brews, mugwort grows as a weed across Europe and elsewhere. It is certainly psychoactive, albeit temperamental. Primarily known as a dream enhancer (it does this, at least on the first occasion) it also produces a gentle sedation. Bear in mind that this presents relatively unchartered waters in modern times, so it is perhaps not a good idea to overdo it. #mugwort #dreamherb #thujone

    Skullcap is usually consumed as tea, although smoking is far from uncommon. I tested via both, with each providing a heady sedation. Contrary to most reports, I found smoking to have a more intense effect, although this could have been linked to the age of my sample. Note that the effects continued into the night, with sleep having the same heady quality to it. Finally, bear in mind that there are a number of varieties of scutellaria, carrying different levels of potency.   #skullcap…

    I have to admit that I found N2O to be rather disappointing. It was like a 'wham bam thank you man' type of experience, with little fulfilment or satisfaction. Perhaps this was because of my past experience with more accomplished psychoactives, or perhaps it is just over-hyped. Whatever the reason, it was incredibly short: a bit of a head zap followed by a period of calm. Others, of course, differ in their opinion on this, as it is widely used.   #n2o #nitrous

    White Sage has a lengthy history of ceremonial use, and has a distinct ‘sage & onion’ type odour, with brittle sticky leaves. Smoking it created a dreamy form of light-headedness, with mild subsequent sedation: nothing really significant, but there nonetheless. However, given that it contains thujone, which has been reported as toxic with respect to certain vital organs, it is not one to make a habit of.  #whitesage #salviaapiana
