I am fairly experienced with LSA in the form of morning glory seeds and HBWR seeds. The trips have always been interesting (and usually fun), but it came to the point where I was no longer willing to deal with the severe cramping and nausea that these seeds gave me when chewed and swallowed.
So, curious as to how I could enjoy an LSA trip with less side effects, I had considered extractions. But, after comparing rates of good vs bad trips with extractions vs chewed seeds I found that extractions led to a higher rate of dud trips and bad trips. Also it seemed that people still got cramping and nausea almost as often.
So I tried something that I'm not aware of having been done before: extractionless sublingual absorbtion. So far I've tried this successfully with both 6 seeds and 9 seeds. This report is about the time I took 9 seeds. Pardon my lack of detail in this report, but my memory of this trip is kind of poor. But because I think this method of taking HBWR is so much better than swallowing, I thought I should post it anyway.
It's a friday night in my chill little dorm. I scrape down 9 seeds (because I'm superstitious, I know the husk and fuzz is harmless) and chew them to a pulp. I held this pulp in my lip for about 25 minutes. By this time I had first alerts manifest themselves in a bit of a sedating buzz.
So about two hours later my buzz has intensified to the point where I'm about as inebriated as if I'd smoked half a bowl of bud by myself. This is normal for LSA in my experience, and I had no doubts that my sublingual technique would work, so as far as I was concerned I was right on track.
A few of my friends are hanging out having some drinks, and I go hang out with them. We decide to smoke some herb. After the first bowl I was *very* high. Another bowl was packed and I took some half-hearted hits off it. By the time that was cashed I was most certainly tripping.
We were sitting up on my friend's bed in her dorm and there were a couple stuffed animals sitting around. "C" picks up a koala bear stuffed animal and names it "Koali". Then she makes a funny voice and has Koali talk nonsense to me for a while. All I could do was laugh for a couple minutes, then pretend to ignore it, then laugh some more. I started to pick up some random objects around the bed, but "C" told me they were radioactive. Of course I had to put the objects down even though I knew they weren't. I was amazed at how easily I was being messed with, and I thought it was all pretty funny.
So then I start to get some visuals. Things in the corner of my eye would take on a trippy-cartoony look, and colors were much brighter than normal. The light cast onto the wall from a lamp shade looked more like a rainbow of colors instead of the normal light it should have been.
My buzz at this point was really nice, typical of LSA. Best described as a cross between a mushroom and opiate buzz, I guess. But then again I have this need to "cross" things that have their own distinct feeling.
At this point my friends wanted to watch Apocalypse Now... and I said fuck that and went to listen to some tunes. Nice CEV's... another bowl smoked... nice... groovy...
Went to bed a little while later, no problem.
Total trip lasted about 7 hours, and felt equal in intensity to about 6 seeds chewed and swallowed (I go by the 50% more seeds rule for sublingual absorbtion).
No nausea. No vomiting. No cramps. Just a nice buzz and a mild trip somewhat like less speedy acid.
