I finely ground 25g of chacruna. I put the leaf powder in a glass. I added 35ml of white rum (Bacardi, 40% alchol). I mixed it up well with a spoon. The quantity of rum was barely enough to moisten the leaf powder thoroughly. I left it to soak at room temperature for 8 hours.
I chewed and swallowed one 150mg tablet of moclobemide and washed it down with a bit of water (very bitter). One hour later I added 100ml purified water to the leaf powder paste, gave it a good stir and drank the lot.
The trip had plenty of ayahuasca character and was very therapeutic. I felt myself changing into a feline. I had some wonderful deep relaxation, feeling tensions being released in my body and soul. "Feline relaxation therapy", heh.
I will use this leaf preparation method from now on. I already made a few regular brews with this batch of leaf and tonight's trip was the strongest!
Next time I will use vine. Potent as the trip was, it lacked much of the magic and shine of true ayahuasca. My next trip using vine with this leaf prep method will surely knock my socks off!!!
Tonight I have proved to myself that this alcholic leaf prep method works brilliantly, and that vine is more than a simple maoi. I read speculations that tetrahydroharmine is a weak serotonin re-uptake inhibitor. Maybe that is what makes the difference. I don't want to totally knock moclobemide though. It gave me a super trip tonight. But vine has that extra magic something.......

This method reminds me of when I discovered the perlite humidification tek here at Mycotopia. I had a load of grief using more complicated methods. I thought "Could it really be that simple and effective?" I tried it and it worked brilliantly, way better than all the other methods.
BTW, I changed my name from Leprachaun to Phalanx and deleted my old account, in case anyone is wondering who I am.

It would be safest to only use pure drinks like white rum or vodka rather than wine or beer. The alchol buzz seemed to wear off about an hour after drinking the leaf, before the main trip started.
Simple is best!!!

As expected, the caapi gave the gold and extra atmosphere which the moclobemide lacked, even though the caapi dose was weaker. I went to bed at 3am last night, but with the moc it was 5.30am despite dosing at the same time and using the same batch and quantity of leaves prepared the exact same way. I will up my caapi dose to 50g-60g next time.
Another problem was that the trip came in several waves instead of one big tsunami. It seemed to be due to eating 2 slices of toast with butter instead of one. This made me thirsty and had to keep drinking water to keep it flowing. I will only eat 1 slice in future and use olive oil instead. The salt in the butter causes thirst. Maybe my thirst is what brought on the desert survival visions.
I couldn't get deeply involved in the visions because they would fade before fully developing and another wave would come with different themes.

I have been there. It is like watching tv with someone that changes the channel of the tv every 2 minutes..

Really? First I heard about it. Did read of natives letting the brew stand for days so it started to ferment.

LOL, yeah, its a bummer
I got the squirts as well, which is unusual. I had some amusement park visuals at the very beginning, of people on cart rides/rollercoaster type stuff. Shanon says that is common!
Also, I felt myself turning into a blue octopus/sea urchin thing with many legs which was too weird to describe.
In a trip a couple of weeks ago, I had a vivid experience of turning into a camel!!! It felt so silly and strange I had trouble rolling with it. AYA IS COOL!!!

Thats what I like also! I once had a vision of sorts like this I turned into a snake. I was wiggeling around the house on the floor. Just slithering around. It was so real, I became the snake, I felt like the snake, I was the snake.
I just go with it when stuff like this happens. It is definatly a wonderfull experiance.

It seems to be because the dmt/tannins or whatever are still sitting inside the leaf when you consume, so you can't taste it so much to make you nauseous when drinking. Also, it doesn't irritate the stomach for apparently the same reason. It passes quietly through to the small intestine to be absorbed there. This minimises post-consumption nausea.
It still tastes bad and makes me retch, but not half as much as a regular brew. It is the only way I would consume mimosa if I had to again.

LOL, I love hearing about people having similar experiences to my own. It is so DAMN real! Especially when you start physically acting out.
awesome i have getting sick i'm gonna try your method first buddy boy
Kewl! Good luck. I would love to hear someone else's experience with this method. I ground the leaf in 2 batches of 30 seconds each in an electric coffee grinder. It is important to grind well. If you are using caapi, use a good quantity and be sure to grind it down well too, before brewing. Don't filter too fine and drink the sediment. A medium-fine kitchen sieve is all you need.
Wait an hour between dosing the caapi and the pv for best results. You may need to eat a small amount of fatty food about 1 to 1.5 hours after drinking the chacruna to make the trip kick in fully. Drink 200-300ml water with it to help digestion.

I let the leaf mix soak for only 4 and a half hours this time. It was a different leaf batch but I felt I got every bit of dmt out of it. There was some metallic visuals and a bit of gold. I ate one slice of bread with about 10ml olive oil and drank 400ml water slowly after it to make the trip kick in. It is better than butter.
Wow, I can't wait to try this with a decent dose of vine. Hippie3, are you going to give this method a go and give it the official thumbs up? You can kick everything else I wrote out of the archives and put this in instead. It is the dog's bollocks.
I would like to try using syrian rue. Maybe the excessive nausea that people sometimes get is due to overdosage. I have an accurate 0.1g scales so I could carefully control the dose. If I can get the brilliance of vine from syrian rue without excessive nausea then I am truly sorted.

i soaked it in everclear for an hour then
strained and i am doing a second soak then i will
do a third.
can i boil it down a bit...?
what can i do from here?
Posted 24 January 2005 - 12:20 AM
From my own personal experiance I would say it is because they grind up the whole seeds and eat them.
I have had much better luck making an extraction of the seeds and using them this way. There seems to be something in the seeds that is NOT water soluable that makes one very sick. It seems that the good stuff IS water solable. I can handle an extraction made from 15 grams of rue with very little sickness by using this method.
Give it a shot! I am sure you will find it to be much makes you much less sick.
Posted 24 January 2005 - 12:26 AM
Better not drink that all at once! If you do I expect a full report! If this method works and you happen to extract all of the DMT from the bark, 55 grams of mimosa would send you on one VERY powerfull trip. I have done 30 grams using a water extraction, and literly went OBE and met the goddess face to face.
I would try 1/4 of this extraction to see what happens. I would also keep the mimosa after the extraction. If nothing happens, chances are the good stuff is still in the mimosa. Waste not want not!! It is also NOT a good idea to boil ever clear, just let it set at room temp and it will evaporate very quickly.

it is sitting in my sock drawer.
it is weird, the color of the liquid is like reddish-brownish
but at the bottom there is a really light colored
layer of silt looks like it woulb be white without
all the liquid in there, one day i will find out.
how long do ya think it will last in there, ...
btw i squeezed the holy living hell out of the last of the grinded root bark through 2 coffee filters.. the liquid just looks psychadelic.
