G13 HAZE from THEGREENTEAM (TGT)
//review by sidetracked
If legend is anything to go by, this strain was created in a lab by the CIA and the FBI before being stolen by a rogue technician who then sold it to the masses. Now I don't know about all that... but I do know this is a very smooth, potent and delicious smoke.
Right away you know you're in for a treat. The buds are dense and have just a tiny bit of sticky-ness to them, with lots of trichomes on display. Firm when pressed and glistening inside when you break it open.
It has a sweet, fruity smell with an earthy stank cutting right through the middle. I assume it's strong smell comes from it's skunk genetics. It really hits the nose and stays there for a bit. There are so many little scents of something in there that it is hard to detect them all. In hindsight the scent was giving not-so-subtle hint of the flavour to come.
I found the flavour to be similar to Wedding Cake, in the sense that it is sweet and a little peppery. It differs from that strain with it's subtle fruitiness and very smooth smoke. I smoke bongs and I hardly felt it go down. It's quite easy to smoke a lot and fast but be careful because it packs a decent punch.
This is another powerful strain on the long list of powerful strains TGT are providing us. It's no secret I'm no fan of sativa, at least I wasn't. This stuff is a hybrid but it's sativa dominant and has just enough indica to keep the negative sativa effects at bay for me. For the first time in a long time I'm able to fully enjoy this thoughtful, cerebral high that I didn't know I missed. I'm happy and engaging, having great conversations. It's an exhilarating, calm enduing strain that really has changed my mind on sativa as a whole. I'm already seeking out sativa strains that might work for me. I think it works both ways too, there is a minor body high to it that just works so well, it won't sap all your energy like strong indica strains do. I'm having a good time with this stuff man. Cheers.
//disclaimer I received some of the G13 as a thank you for assisting TGT. My review is my true opinion and is as honest as it would have been had I purchased the product.
You can find my other reviews HERE. Thank you.
The elequence and format of your writing style was also an A* :)
I was also smoking on this yesterday and agreed it’s very nice. I’m now starting to think I should have saved it for a social occasion...
I think so anyway, it would definitely work socially for me. It allowed my thoughts to flow freely and made me want to be social/chatty and engaged with out that bit where I start analysing everything I say and do. As you said “just enough indica”. Very nicely balanced.
That's good. It's hard for me to find a good social weed, most of them send me over the edge. Have you found any others that work for you? I felt that man, just opens the mind a bit and made me a lot more chatty. I think I know what you mean, I get proper panicky sometimes with sativa and overthink like crazy. Glad I found something that works well for me.
Anything that’s nicely balanced is usually good for me, too much sativa and Im over thinking, too much Indica and I’m a zombie haha. Also found anything with Arjans name on is pretty nice and balanced.
What kind of ratios work best for you? And do you have any preferred dominance? I thought I did but I'm not sure now. Aye Epix said that was a nice one, I'm gonna give it a try next week it does sound promising.
I find sour OG is good, NYC diesel is great, skunk#1, the orange strains etc, a lot of the classic Dutch hybrids really work for me in that setting.
Have you got any preference day to day? I’m convinced there’s a strain for every situation it’s just finding it.
One thing I do know is these newer limoncello hazes are amazing but put me on edge if I’m somewhere new haha.
Let us know how you get on with the strawberry haze, I’m really curious how you find it after the g13 haze.
I've not tried them, usually if something can have negative effects then I'll get them haha so that worries me. I will do mate I have a feeling it will be good.
G13 Haze is actually quickly becoming one of my top strains. Really special high. Will be doing a review myself later tonight.
MJ reached out to me and we spoke. I came away from that conversation with a feeling of regret and respect. Regret that I had said such negative things about someone who clearly took great pride in his product, and respect for the person that made me realize my mistake. While my original opinion on the chocolate remains the same overall, it is now worded with the same care that MJ puts in to his products - and with the respect it deserves.
I received a pack of 8x12.5mg Bears as a gesture of goodwill from MJ. This blew my mind. It showed me two things 1) As a customer I was respected. 2) This man stands by his product. Both amazing things to see in a vendor. I would like to thank MJ for taking the time to deal with me and for handling it like he did. With that out of the way, let's talk Bears!
The stealth was top-notch. The delivery was speedy and the little package fit right through the door no worries. The bears are presented nicely in the package and have the look of a quality product. The deep green is very eye catching.
Let me just say as a gelatin sweet, these would be quite nice on their own - but when that taste of the shatter comes through and compliments it your mouth will salivate. Very impressed with the taste. They're sweet but not too sweet. The shatter infusion is delicious and subtle enough to keep you wanting more. I ate them all in one go and have no regrets.
They are very professional looking. It must have been a long process with a lot of dead bears to get these right and you can appreciate all the work that went in to them. The bears are quite firm and have a good consistency. They don't just fall apart. You get to really chew them and take in all the flavour. They are also very handy if you like to control your THC intake as you can eat as few or as many as you like.
I ate these over two hours ago and I was feeling them kick in slightly around the 1 hour mark. I started to feel more relaxed and a little giggle-y. It hits your body mostly and as another hour passed my eyes started to feel slightly heavier and I felt very relaxed and happy. I still feel them hitting after nearly 3 hours although I have a high tolerance and think something around the 250mg mark would have been the ideal dose for me. I can't wait to try some more!
In conclusion. MJ I have a massive amount of respect for you and your work. Your passion and pride is shown in the product and I would recommend this product to everyone, you won't be disappointed. If you have a high smoking tolerance I would recommend a higher dose however this is just what I think would work for me.
Thanks for reading!
Keep an eye out for the Lit Bar (1000mg), if your tolerance is up there at 250mg. I'll probs get some jellies made up too, my tolerance is up there as well.
In the meantime, the RSO I have listed should satisfy. 500 - 600mg THC in a handy syringe.
Its not on your page currently, any idea when they will be back?
Just finished watching season 4, absolutely love this show. This video is a hilarious little peak behind the scenes.
If you've seen it, who is your favourite character?
The story has definitely picked up again. Season four was my least fave one. I was concerned that the show had started to decline. S5 has definitely put my mind to rest.
Might start 5 tonight actually.
But yeah I'm only 3 episodes into the 4th season... I've heard that the 4th book was the worst of the series, so will be interesting to see how it pans out.
Let me know when you finish watching it, I want to know what you think of the 4th season. They have that Amazon money now it looks brilliant doesn't it haha. I wonder if the books are worth a read.
Now I would like to talk about transparency. I have no issue with Vikosh offering services to vendors. I have no issue with Vikosh helping new vendors out and asking them to use his referral code. Where my problem lies is that I feel like Vikosh had intentionally made it seem like anyone considering becoming a vendor should absolutely contact him first. I can not think of any good reason he would want that to happen. I can think of quite a few bad ones. If you are offering a legitimate service then you should be fully transparent on what that service is, and whether or not it is mandatory.
Since Vikosh has refused to comment or update the description of his services to reflect their true nature, I have posted some key information below his original advertisement in the interest of transparency and fairness. You can find the link HERE.
And with that, our job done, and our community stronger.
Be careful biggas.
I don't know much about the stuff but the dude says it's like $5k worth...reckon he wasted at least $1k of it stuck on the worktop and all over the floor...what a bellend... can't believe he shotgunned 2 beers in the middle of it too... proper wanker...
The system we currently have in place is when a new vendor joins they are vetted by a trusted member (sometimes). That system does not work and time after time scammers are operating here and people are getting screwed.
Something needs to be put in place to stop anyone and everyone signing up as a vendor. I think the people behind the scenes need to start vetting. I think they need to make sure these vendors have the product and stock they claim to have. I think they need to make sure they are providing adequate stealth before they start selling or WE pay the price. Escrow is good but it doesn't stop vendors joining and it also doesn't guarantee your money back when you get screwed.
I am not accusing anyone of anything but I have a bad feeling about the latest vendor to join our ranks. I urge everyone to make their own decision on the matter but at a glance I certainly wouldn't be trying them out. Right away there are several red flags and I would hate to see anyone lose money over it. I am aware I could be wrong and I hope I am, but I'd rather be wrong and vet someone properly, than right and have biggers lose money.
I understand this is a free market, but that doesn't mean it needs to be a unsafe one. I'd love to hear all of your thoughts.
Low effort profiles: No product photos, bad grammar, no branding, no proof (username & date) in photos, low quality/effort pics, pics from google.
Pricing: If it looks to good (cheap) to be true, it is. If you see bad pricing like $15 for 1 gram and $45 for 2 gram - this is also a warning sign.
Vendor personality: A honest vendor should answer any questions/concerns in a friendly and customer service orientated manner. Look out for aggressive sellers, if they want your money that badly then something is up.
Unusual behaviour: A vendor should NEVER try get you to finalize a sale away from littlebiggy, if they do they are most likely trying to steal your money. No matter what reason they give you, it's likely a lie to get you away from the protection of escrow.
There's a whole miserable world outside of people ready to exploit fears. I like to think of little biggy as a sanctuary from that.
Also, each of your paragraphs contradict the other, so I'm not sure what you really mean.
Sounds a massive bellend.
What proof do you have that Ronald maybe the same guy?
It’s a total cliche but we’re given a lot of liberty on here and with it comes some responsibility.
I’d like to think anyone capable of finding this place etc has the basic skills required to conduct their own due diligence.
If someone isn’t comfortable or has doubts they should stay away. I also hope it’s pretty obvious to anyone that’s spent a couple of hours here who the most popular vendors are and who’s a safe bet for a noob.
Vendor reps are earned the hard way and I think it’s pretty fair to say all the top vendors fully deserve their rep so something must be working.
Ultimately I don’t think any system is perfect and there will always be occasional problems especially when people are involved.
Even with a vetting system in place, the situation Panda found them selves in would still have occurred as it was one of the vendors staff attempting to sabotage the business.
I have no idea of numbers but would guess/hope the percentage of problems is tiny compared to successes.
Also, I say all this as someone who’s never had a problem on here and understand some users experiences may differ but still stand by the main point of taking some responsibility for your own decisions.
I totally understand where you’re coming from but until there’s a change in law, unfortunately I see it being nearly impossible to vet. I would like to think if people are careful then risks are really really tiny and are generally kept to the minimum.
I have seen time and time again people stumbling on to this site and having to ask the community how to set up a wallet, buy btc, find a vendor, make a order, pay for a order. It is evident that unsuspecting and naive people sign up all the time, and those are the people we as existing members need to protect.
I disagree, I think as a new member it is overwhelming. You have so many choices and the pressure of making the right one only increases the chances of making the wrong one. It is not immediately clear that shady people operate here. People come in and make a order from the likes of Radar, or Drugs INC and they then assume it will be safe to order from anyone. Even BH got screwed, and I wouldn't call him naive. The issue is not with the big vendors here mate, it's the exact opposite. Despite little to no ratings, people continue to buy off these flash-in-the-pan scammers. I don't understand why it's acceptable on any level.
The system is far from perfect, it actually does the bare minimum. You mentioned responsibility, 95% of the policing here is done by us. We need to collect evidence, report, and convict. The admins just remove the culprit once we've done everything else. I don't see how we can be any more responsible with the system we have been given.
I encourage you to do some digging in to the panda situation mate. People are still receiving unsafe packages that stink, after the worker in question was supposedly removed. You bought that sabotage thing? That situation wasn't handled properly either. At least 2 people including panda have been received letters and the vendor is getting a pass. 2 others got lucky and were not reported, but their packs were reeking. People continue to order unsafe packages. Personally I don't think any amount of people getting busted is acceptable. JJ looks as legit as they come, has plenty of ratings and is very, very active. Yet anyone could easily get screwed by ordering there. I'm not sure how we are supposed to be vigilant about that, or responsible for it.
I don't think the law needs to change, just a few simple changes around here to protect the community. It isn't impossible, and has never even been attempted. No matter how little it may be, I don't think any risk of people being doxxed should be acceptable.
Thank you for joining in the discussion mate. I hope my tone doesn't come across as argumentative.
Saying that, I’ve seen similar points raised in the past and nothing is done once the hype dies down.
I would urge anyone with concerns to gather like minded people and at least attempt to put into action the changes they want to see.
If it’s a case of protecting new accounts from ordering off new vendors, could accounts with less 10 buys be locked off from vendors with less than 50 sales?
Should we only accept new vendors who’ve been bought here via referral?
Should all new vendors be made to send samples out ?
If that’s what people want then at least try and make it happen.
I still think a change in law is the only way you’ll get the buyer protection you want but could user address’s be erased from the order form once the purchase has been rated?
I think anything close to GDPR are going to be impossible to enforce but how could it be better?
Also if someone isn’t happy with how things are run and doesn’t have confidence in the system they don’t have to use this place. The situation with smelling packages is unprecedented but what could have been done differently to prevent it from happening?
I understand everyone wants good stuff and for some it’s medical but while it’s illegal or until members who want changes bring in those changes it’s very much a case of buyer beware. I have every sympathy for people who do get caught out but personally I’ve been well aware of all the above risks and the possibility of having a package intercepted since day one and accept it.
I honestly wish you all the best in your endeavour to get the changes you want.
Some of these suggestions are good. GDPR levels of data protection I'd never expect, however some basic transparency in relation to how vendors handle our sensitive data is a very minor thing to ask for. Putting guidelines in place so that vendors know to practice good OPSEC in regards to our data. These are things I could easily put in to words, but without official backing they would mean nothing.
I understand that you are happy and that's great, however by your logic anyone who has an issue with anything here should just leave. Personally, I don't want to lose 95% of our community. My original post here was about scammers, not bad stealth and JJ, so I'm not sure how we got on to that.
Regardless my opinion on that situation is that of course it could have been prevented! JJ could have practiced better stealth. He got several people busted mate.. not just Panda. That should never have happened and I can't believe it is being accepted, after several more cases of seized packs. That is insane to me. You pretty much just summed up my point? Until we can mount the changes outlined in this post, we as buyers must beware. Getting busted because a vendor practiced bad stealth is not something any of us have accepted, nor should we. There weren't just intercepted at all, these packs were in a horrible state and were begging to be picked up.
If like you say 95% of the community has issues then you should be able to make enough noise to get the change you want. You say it’s impossible to get change, but you haven’t even tried.
Going back and forth when we have different opinions is ridiculous. I’ve tried to level with you and see it from your perspective at this point I really have nothing else to say to you.
Do you really think having a discussion with people who have opposing opinions to you is ridiculous? It begs the question.. why engage in a discussion in the first place?
So far now I have come across 3 separate posts of people that have had stinking packages, this is not acceptable. It's so dangerous man, and I've learned first hand what happens, thank fuck I didn't have a big order. People could be fucking arrested and face court, the buyer is entirely in the hands of the vendor and I think this needs making apparent, maybe as a notice before you actually go ahead and press pay that can serve as a warning.
That is a really good idea and one easily implemented. People also need to be aware that their data is in the hands of the vendor too. Who knows what is happening with that.
I'm just getting refunded mate, I'd have sooner not have had the police around though instead.
it was only 30quids worth and I can't even spend it on here for a bit now lol
I'd hope the vendors would delete addresses after they have dispatched, but whether this happens and how you police that they do, I don't really have an answer for that
Well how it's dealt with in the real world is the GDPR. Vendors should be stating exactly what they do with our data. When found to be breaching the rules they ought to be subject to punishment in the form of fines or termination (in the case of SD/DH). I just don't think it will happen with the way things work though. One can dream.
Pass the test to be able to trade, I found my reviews insightful and improved my offering. A re- review could be implemented after a set period to keep new vendors focused.
Grape Ape from THEGREENTEAM (TGT)
//review by sidetrackedI forgot to do a full review when I first got this stuff, probably because I was so blasted off of it. I did write down some notes while I was toking and have a little bit left, so I'm gonna get my thoughts together now before it's too late.
Here we have one of the most delicious, euphoria inducing strains I've ever smoked. I couldn't possibly find anything to fault about this stuff, it is perfect.
//look&feelWow. I know my pictures aren't up to much but look at those buds. Picture perfect with some eye catching colours, absolutely dripping with trichomes. They are somewhat light and feel very healthy. They're not dry or brittle and have a very nice cure. The colour of the bud is really impressive too, a subtle purplish hue runs throughout the flower. The bag appeal is off the charts.
//aromaI love the smell of this strain. The grape terps are very detectable from the bud, there is a slight earthy smell lingering but mostly the grape stands out. It's very sweet and fruity. When ground up it released the most enchanting grape smell that had me drooling.
//flavourYou know when you think of a sweet you like, or something fizzy, and your mouth starts watering? Yeah, that's what happens to me now when I think of Grape Ape. I just can't get enough of it. I just kept toking and toking trying to take in every last bit of flavour on offer. I was exhaling as slowing as possible to try and take it all in and I just wasn't satisfied that I had tasted enough, it's very moreish. Once I was done being overwhelmed with flavour I was able to analyze it a bit. It is strong and hits you right away then lingers for a bit. It is very sweet and grape-y with a hint of blueberry, and has a sweet aftertaste. I swear I can taste it on my lips for a little while after I smoke it. I'm very impressed with it.
//effectsDue to it's slow build up the high was deceivingly light at first, but after a few minutes and another toke I was floored. I should have waited a couple of minutes for that second toke to be honest. I had no idea it was coming and it was very pleasant as it gently passed over me. I felt my limbs become heavy and my smile widen, I was very relaxed and calm, with a sense of well-being. I was in a great mood and giggly, laughing at absolutely nothing. My mind was completely spaced out and my body sedated. I was able to stop thinking about the stresses of life and just relax for a while.
On top of being a recreational powerhouse, I think this would also be a great indica strain for treating depression, pain, stress and sleeping problems. I'm a daily smoker and it knocked me out cold and lifted my mood quite effectively. It's a strong strain too so it should dull those aches and pains quite well. Maybe best not to smoke it during to day unless you're a fan of taking naps. This is one strain not to miss.Thanks for reading. You can check out more of my reviews HERE.
BLUE CHEESE from THEGREENTEAM (TGT)
//review by sidetrackedI noticed a couple of people looking for info on TGT's cheese so I figured I'd get a review up. I smoked a gram in 30-40 minutes so this is more of a first impression that a in-depth strain review.
Blue Cheese holds a special place in my heart. This strain was everywhere when I first started smoking green, and I mean everywhere. Even if you didn't smoke it you probably knew what it smelled like. It's been a little while since I picked some up so I'm excited to revisit a classic.
//look&feelThere is a mixture of some light buds and some more dense ones, some have a bit more leaf that others. It's hard to see in the picture due to bad lighting but there are a fair amount of trichomes on there. It is a little dryer than TGT's usual offerings but not too brittle nor does it crumble when handled.
//aromaThe smell isn't overpoweringly pungent or offensive to the nose, it is light and has a tangy zest to it and a slight sweetness. When broken apart it produces a more powerful stank and if you wake a big whiff it is very pleasant and can be quite calming, as if it were a candle or attractive perfume. Perhaps that's just the sweet smell of nostalgia.
//tasteThe taste is close to the smell in that it can be fruity and a little sweet but it lacks the musky cheese taste, thankfully. I find Cheese can be a little rough so this works nicely.
//effectsThe high comes on a little slow and builds up around the eyes. It's a good hybrid ratio that I think leans more on the indica side eventually, but just a little. I felt alert at first as the sativa rushed to my head, it is a little euphoric. It takes a few minutes for the indica to creep up and remind me it's actually the dominant side of the plant. That's when my eyes started to get heavy and my body relaxed. I was watching some Bill Burr and started to get really giggle-y. There are some medical benefits here too. I think this would be good for pain and stress among other things. It made me quite sleepy too after a few bongs so it would be good for a sleep if you get enough in you. My only gripe really is the high doesn't last as long as I'm used to with the newer strains, so you have to top up just a bit sooner. Not a huge deal though as it is cheaper than all of that bud as well. I think Blue Cheese is a capable daytime smoke in lower doses and a great nighttime smoke in higher doses. A great little blast from the past.
//disclaimerI received some of the Blue Cheese as a thank you for assisting TGT. My review is my true opinion and is as honest as it would have been had I purchased the product. Apologies for the less than great pictures also. Thank you.
I don't have a crazy amount of experience with psychedelics, so perhaps I was a little naive to think this trip would be easy to do while doing the whole live trip thing, that was my first mistake. After 30 minutes or so I thought I seen shadows starting to warp, so I reported that, but for the life of me couldn't replicate what I had just seen. I was staring at lights, shadows, objects hoping something would move. Nothing. Had I just imagined it, because I wanted so badly for the drug to kick in? Another 30 minutes go by and I'm more concerned now, still nothing.
It was another 15 minutes before I could be 100% certain I was starting to come up, the room was swaying and the normally while walls shifted hue; green, blue, yellow, it was very subtle and seemed to come and go. Now this is where the anxiety started, I became so aware of all the virtual eyes waiting for my updates, hoping for a good experience for me, and I had nothing great to say. At this point I'm trying to keep it together while replying to comments and the screen starts buzzing, as if I could feel the electricity coming out the screen and attacking my eyes. Words became hard to read and everything vibrated. This was when I read Frankos comments about the screen grounding me and it made a lot of sense, so I shut off the monitor and lay down on my bed.
I wish I turned the lights off at this point and laid down, but something stopped me, maybe it was my body being locked but I'm not sure, I think it was more of a mental block. Perhaps I was too scared to fully let go. I closed my eyes and really only saw darkness, there was a short moment where I could see the inside of my skull, but it was a dozen malformed jaws and teeth all fused together and it really freaked me out so I didn't wanna do that anymore.
For the next 30 minutes or so I'm switching between eyes open and closed, not really seeing much when closed and when open everything is fuzzy, moving, and trippy as hell. Tracers, floaters, everything sounding weird, all that. The buzz of electricity and whirling of fans from my computer seemed to pitch and whine at random, that was quite eerie.
We're maybe 2 hours in and this point and I still can't see and vivid or crazy visions, eyes open or closed, this is where it all started to feel like a bad acid trip. I look down at the floor and my dog is eating her food, but something is wrong. Her jaw is quivering and making weird cracking noises, food is falling from her mouth. I'm staring at her with a look of shock and concern, at this point I had forgotten that I was tripping and fully believed something catastrophic was happening. Her face is morphing and warping, her body drooping and sagging, my poor dog is falling apart in front of me, I have to help her. I start to gently hold her face in a attempt to piece her back together, I'm scared and have to get my brother, walking behind my dog making sure pieces of her aren't falling off. I beg him to please look at her she needs to help, he is trying hard not to laugh his balls off, of course. He entertains it briefly by sort of patting her down, assuring me she is fine, this is when I have a brief moment of clarity "you're tripping balls man" I thought. I look at my dog again, she is a pudgy mess. My brothers face is just a pixel-y blur, I retreat to my room in a fit of nervous laughter. This was definitely the most intense part of the trip. Poor dog must have been so confused as to why I kept patting her face and head.
The next two hours are a mix of hilarity, fear, and anxiety. Something landed on my bed, I have no idea what it was but as I touched it, it seemed to move. This made me jump back and try to investigate this little spec of weirdness. I still have no idea what it was but after 5 minutes (relative, could have been 30 seconds) I concluded it wasn't alive or a threat.
I went down the stairs during this time and attempted to take a bong, mistake number 3. My legs were a big bendy mess of malfunctioning muscles that had the not so easy task of walking down 12 stairs. My perspective was weird, as if my eyes were on top of my forehead and no in my eye sockets. I tried to spread a little green in the bong but my hands are so sweaty it just sticks to my fingers, I can't get it off and it starts to multiply, just replicating itself all over my fingers.. I wipe my hands on my shirt and retreat back to the safety of my room.
My mind is racing, is my dog okay? Am I going to fail scool? What is everyone on LB saying? God I hope they know I'm okay, I should update them. I can't, the screen gives me anxiety, oh god I turned it on there are 26 new messages, it's all too much I'm out, back to the bed. I'm just lying there trying not to let it all overcome me, not fully tripping at this point, slight tracers and stuff but nothing crazy.
I'm aware of how incredibly hungry I am so I try to eat a packet of crisps I had near by, this was my final mistake. I was crunching on the crisp and suddenly my teeth shattered, the next crunch I crashed down on my own teeth and destroyed them. I immediately spat out the contents on my mouth in to my hands.. just crisps. There was no pain and I'm feeling my teeth, all still there. Fuck that sucked. After laying there for a bit I eventually put on some Joe Rogan, still slightly tripping, this is where it becomes more pleasurable, I'm able to watch JRE, laughing and start feeling like I'm coming round. I mostly relax now and still have hard time walking around the house, slight tracers etc still.
This was where I started to reflect on my experience and concluded despite everything it ultimately wasn't a "bad trip". I was able to conclude that I am not fully in control of my life, I have lots of fears I could now plan to conquer. I have a lot of relationships in my life I need to improve. I do wish it was a more vivid visual experience with enlightenment and triumph but hey, maybe I just wasn't ready to go there quite yet.
This was a bit of a long one, thanks for reading through it. Thanks to everyone that took part, send me good vibes and kind words, this community is beautiful. <3
I know i will never take another hallucinogen in my lifetime, this just reaffirmed my position on this.
Were the bad trips the reason you stopped?
I'm not sure why you are upset, but if you message me we can talk about it.
I drowned when I was 15 on holiday in Spain. I was fully out cold, under the water, and before I passed out I had fully thought I was dying, and accepted that as it went dark. I was maybe only under for 30-45 seconds before my step-bro grabbed me, but my lungs filled with water and stuff, it was nasty. I don't remember any life changing realizations coming from that, or anything at all, other than I stopped swimming.
Death isn't life changing to everyone I guess.Unless I didn't die enough. T_T
Next time don’t put that pressure on yourself.
Who is your money on for the main event? I think I'll do a accumulator and hope for the best.
Tomorrow I'll most likely do a full write up, but for now it'll be report as I go. At peak I'll most likely stop updating till after. Thanks to everyone for the tips and good vibes, the LB community continues to amaze me.
20:33 - 25mg Ingested, Wrapped in a skin. (accompanied by increased heart rate, nerves?) *this normalized after few mins*
21:09 - First noticeable effects. Lights/shadows pulsing very subtle, wavey. Slight tingle in the legs. Nothing too crazy, yet.
21:13 - First yawn. :)
21:28 - Not sure if I jumped the gun, not much to report so far.
21:45 - Definitely feeling something now, room is warping a bit. Swaying like I'm on a boat almost.I swear the Hue of the room is changing. It's weird these effects seem to come and go.
Friends, I've been waiting a long time to embark on my next trip and the stars have finally aligned. My mind is right, I'm in a good place mentally and physically, I feel great. I will be doing a trip report, perhaps live at first while I still have control over my body, although from what I have read that won't last too long.
I plan on fasting for 10 hours before dosing with 25mg 4-AcO-DMT, since I have a dodgy stomach I'll have a small snack 4-6 hours before I drop it. Most likely will bomb it in a skin for faster onset. Am I missing anything?
I know a few of us have tried this before so I somewhat know what to expect but I won't really know until it hits. Any advice?
