Sceletium survey
    #2002549 - 10/12/03 03:50 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

There isn't a whole lot of biological/neurological information out there about sceletium, so I'd like to get anecdotal information from those who've tried it. Perhaps this could give us insight on the range of biological reactions to sceletium.


How often do you use sceletium?

In what forms have you used it in?

How long do the psychoactive effects last?

Please explain the psychoactive effects you?ve experienced:

Please explain the withdraw effects you?ve experienced:

Have you noticed any positive effects when mixed with other drugs (please explain)?

Have you noticed any negative effects when mixed with other drugs (please explain)?

EDIT: Extra questions I wanted to ask:

How long does it take for tolerance to "reset"?

Do you find it takes more or less sceletium to get the desired effects after using it for squential days? (In other words, does tolerance to sceletium go up, down, or neutral?)


--------------------
The very nature of experience is ineffable; it transcends cognitive thought and intellectualized analysis. To be without experience is to be without an emotional knowledge of what the experience translates into. The desire for the understanding of what life is made of is the motivation that drives us all. Without it, in fear of the experiences what life can hold is among the greatest contradictions; to live in fear of death while not being alive.

Umm, no. Sceletium tortuosum (kanna). You might be thinking of truffles (philosopher's stone - P. mexicana)

Have you searched erowid.org for Experience Reports?

Here are my answers to your questions.

Q: How often do you use sceletium?
A: Several times a week.

Q: In what forms have you used it in?
A: Currently, I'm going through an ounce of dried and shredded S.tort. that I got from an online vendor. In the past, I have used a fermented & finely powdered preparation. Seems like the powder was more potent, but much more expensive.

Q: How long do the psychoactive effects last?
A: Hard to say, as I usually mix it with other psychoactives. No more than a couple hours.

Q: Please explain the psychoactive effects you?ve experienced:
A: By itself, not much. A general mood elevation & energy lift. A bit of a floaty or spaced-out feeling after a while, kinda like a mild benzo.

Q: Please explain the withdraw effects you?ve experienced:
A: None noted.

Q: Have you noticed any positive effects when mixed with other drugs (please explain)?
A: ABSOLUTELY! Probably the main reason I strongly suggest trying S.tort. is that it is the best "w**d booster" around. Pack a bowl with half ST and half c*nn*bis --feels like you smoked 100% c*nn*bis. Also, if you're a drinker, S.tort. adds a nice giddy euphoria and stimulation to your booze buzz.


Q: Have you noticed any negative effects when mixed with other drugs (please explain)?
A: Experienced a dopey, "spun-out", groggy feeling. But this may have just been a side effect of the booze and w**d.

Q: How long does it take for tolerance to "reset"?
A: n/a

Q: Do you find it takes more or less sceletium to get the desired effects after using it for squential days? (In other words, does tolerance to sceletium go up, down, or neutral?)
A: Haven't noticed.

Here's a question you didn't ask, and probably should have:
Q: What methods of ingestion have you tried, and which is the most effective?
A: Current fave method is to chew a stick of gum for a minute or so, flatten it out, dump a pile of ST on the gum, fold over, and chew the gum for a couple hours. Have tried smoking: a bit harsh, but mixes nicely with w**d (powder can mess up a j01nt, though). Snorted powder a few times, didn't like the burn & drip, but effects were quick & noticeable.


Enjoy,

YourHighness

Thanks guys, Erowid unfortuntly doesn't have much info on sceletium, which is why I posted this survey.
