ok. now i'm kinda concerned. perhaps i will only drink 75% of the reduction. dont wanna overdo it.
one pound is 454 grams, you tea'd 3 pounds, thats 1360 fresh grams. THATS WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY to much for a beginer but, I will say this, it will break you through. It will scare the fuck out of you, it will be the single most beautiful expereince you will ever have, it will also be the most intense. It will be something to remember. You should have only started with 600 to 800 fresh grams for a noob to cactus but, I like your style.
Go for it, give it a shot and see where it leads if you think you can handle it.
