So, a few days later, maybe a week. I have a few things to add to this post now.
First and foremost, this had a hugely beneficial effect on my entire mindset. This is obvious not only to me, but to my family, and even to strangers that I come in contact with. This was somewhat like a full blown mescaline experience as far as the positive input it has had on my soul, but different from that too. I am ever so grateful for that, and I intend to follow it up again fairly soon, and hopefully ingrain that on my spirit.
A secondary note that I have to add, is that this does indeed mute some aspects of a strong LSD trip. That mind bending ARRRGH thing was not there. No huge speed buzz or tooth grinding or excessive sweating. Neither were the uncontrollable giggles and cramps in my face and abs. A good friend followed suit and took 3 hits of good acid and said it felt like it diluted the LSD, and I had the impression he was almost disappointed. That being said we had very different set and setting, and I also got just the effect I was looking for. Maybe not so much for him. It takes the pointy edge off of an acid trip, and relaxes it into a place almost unrecognizeable to people who know just what to expect from acid. It IS different, and where it is muted in some places, it is so much more enjoyable in others. Like every psychedelic experience, it is subjective and is different for everyone.
This was my very first run at it. I absolutely loved it, but it was very different from most of the trips I usually have. For one I was alone. For two the TV was off through most of it, and my room was pitch dark other than two dancing light bases almost in front of me, with awesome music playing. Turning on a light immediately killed the effect I was getting, and I left it dark until daylight and then some. So to be fair, don't expect an acid trip. I would hesitate to compare it to mescaline, mushrooms, or DMT, it was unique, and to my own taste, just what I was looking for and needed.
I have had a permagrin on ever since, and it's been a week or so. I feel different, in a good way, and people are seeing me differently as well. I have every intention of following this up in the next couple of weeks and trying harder to break down the differences. I have another 3 hits to take in comparison, and I will try to do better to evaluate it and make it better in the description and note the differences better. I felt bad that my friend felt it was diluted, but in some ways it certainly was. In other ways it was beautiful. So put your expectations aside and look at it as a new experience, because that is certainly what it was.
To me it was not in any way a disappointment, but I could understand where some might see it that way. It's subtle, and sublime, and I loved it. Just another 2cents worth.
