Experement w/ Dioscorea dregeana

I wanted to see if you could smoke this stuff. I crushed some and let it sit in some isopropenol for a week, strained it, and put some crushed mint (tea grade) in it and let it evoprate off into the mint. I tried smoking it the other night. Smooth smoke. It made my eyes feel very heavy. Not much of any euphoria though. That night, I slept like I haven't slept in a month. I didn't wake up once during the night. Also none of the unpleasent body sensations that I get from drinking the tea. (Rubbery legs mainly, side note; when you drink the tea, you will have a impulse to flex your leg muscles, DON'T this will result in excruciatingly painful leg cramps) Anyways, I just thought some one out there might find this info usefull.

It's no valerian substitute. Frankly, it was the worst buzz of my entire life save for belladonna. It totally paralyses you to the point where you shake and shimmy when you move. Don't go there. However, the caudiciform plant is real cool looking, as are most caudiciforms and I recommend growing it.

Low doses aren't as unpleasent. The body sensations are why I wanted to try the smoking route, to see if the weren't as bad. I didn't really get any f those effects that way. One of my friends really liked it (orally) I mean it really does depend on how much you take. But yeah it is a shitty buzz if that is what you are after.

I could see where you are coming from. I've had some nasty plant high's before. I could see this stuff killing you... So procede with caution!!!
