I am no writer,no chemist and I don't remember everything in detail,but I will always try my best...
Well I finally got everything I needed to try my first extraction.I decided since it was my first try at this I would do the STB.
Also since it was my first try,I only did a very small batch,I divided everything by four except the naphtha pull.
So far I have only done the one naphtha pull,and I have tried a recrystallization as well,At least I think that is what I did.Sorry I am new to this lol.
Once the naphtha evaporated from the dish,I scraped it all and put it all into a shot glass.Heated some naphtha and added it slowly until it all dissolved minus some goo that stuck to the bottom of the glass.I poured the naphtha out into a smaller glass dish and evaporated it again.
This is what I then decided to try,and holy shit what a ride it was.You guy's were not shitting bahaha.
I had the chance once before to try it out,but now I know I just did not put enough on the bowl back then.
I tried a little bit at first,the same as when I was given some,and felt the exact same effect,just a very minute buzz,with slight vision blur.More of an uncomfortable feeling then anything to be honest.
A few hours later,I was just sitting in my room,bored to death waiting for my green to arrive,So I decided to load the bowl this time,and make sure that "This" time it was going to work.I don't know how much I put on the bowl,but it was covered.I had no glass bowl,nothing to really use but my old weed pipe wit ha bit of ash in it and a single roach lol.
A layer of old weed ash first,then covered with the spice,and all I had was that single dirty roach,so I cracked that bitch open,put it on top of the spice,and lit the roach.I took it all in one big blast,held it in,then shit got very strange very fast.
It was only held in for maybe 15 seconds,then I said to myself,this is your first time with this amount"unknown amount at that",you should let it out now,so I did,then woooooooo shiiiite...........
My hardwood floor went in those amazing fluid like motions like on all psychedelics as did my textured walls and everything else for that matter.
My mouth filled with that slimy feeling I always get when I am TRULY "Peaking"this is a good thing".
I put the pipe down and lay down on my bed,again I think holy shit man you better hold on.I closed my eyes and there was the kaleidoscopic,fractals just moving shapes and colors like I have honestly never seen other than a screen saver.Ya it was like a screen saver,but the most vivid one ever,and I could feel it like electricity or energy flowing and moving throughout my whole body...
This is still only the first few seconds,maybe a minute I thought,and I have to admit,I got scared and opened my eyes right then,but instantly I thought of here,and all the threads I have read,and I remembered to just let it go,"enjoy the ride" and if I couldn't do that I knew in my head worst case scenario,you trip balls for 20 mins then it over any way lol.
So I said to myself lets try and relax and see what happens,I closed my eyes,and slowly I felt the bed underneath me leave.I was now floating.Then I felt the feeling of the clothing on my flesh vanish,then gradually my body left and it was just my mind,at least that is how I felt about it.Again though,I felt afraid,I sat up and opened my eyes.
I looked at my hands,all around my room,the walls the floor,everything was spotless clean,shimmering with rays of light with the effect of looking through a pair of kaleidoscopic glasses or something.Time was about 5 mins at this point.I tried laying down on the bed one more time.
A little more calm now I managed chill with my eye's closed this time for about 5 straight minutes before I decided,I wanted to go out side and see what it was like.
I was still quite ripped,I would say as high as I have ever been on acid at any given point in my life,same goes for mushrooms,I was ripped good.
I opened the door,and was hit in the face with a full moon a cool breeze and the same shimmering rays of light and kaleidoscopic mixing of colors and shapes.
I went to the front yard and and just enjoyed the same rays of light coming from all of the plants light by the moon until it gradually wore of about 10 minutes after being outside.
I would say the whole thing lasted 20 minutes and was some of the best 20 minutes ever.
Next time I will try right from the beginning to relax,close my eyes,and just stay there until it is over for the most part.
Yes,I was a bit afraid I have to admit,I was alone too so that may have had something to do with the fear.
Now I am debating with myself if I want a person there or not.Even though I felt some fear at first,I really do not think I would have wanted any one there talking to me at the time.Maybe it was just a fear I had to conquer on my own,or maybe I am just thinking too deeply on the whole fear I felt???I will try harder to let it go next time...
I will leave my first real trip report at that I guess and include a couple of pictures.Nothing special as the batch I made was pretty small,I didn't get too many shots either sorry,but I will hopefully get more when I try the larger batch.I want some nice pictures more then anything.
Thank You to everyone who helped make this possible for me,it has been a very gratifying experience so far.:bow:
