Blue Lotus Crystal Extract - What Should I Dissolve it in?
    #3588570 - 01/06/05 01:03 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

So I have a gram of Blue Lotus Crystal extract on the way and I'm trying to decide on what would work best and how much to use. Traditionally, it's soaked in wine, but considering this is an extract, it's probably easier to dissolve it in a higher strengh liquor. My thinking is that dissolving it in an entire bottle of wine means having to drink more to get the effects of the Blue Lotus.


Not that I have a problem with drinking wine, it's just that I want to test the effects of Blue Lotus, not a couple of glasses of wine.

So I'm thinking a small bottle (200 ml perhaps?) of a decent vodka might work best. This is a gram of 25:1 extract, so I want to attempt to get the right mixing level.

Any other ideas/experiences?

It should dissovle in anything. It does not need to be liquor.
The dried flowers are traditionally soaked in wine, but you already have the extract so you dont need any liquor.

^ Thats exactly right. You don't *need* alcohol. I've thrown extract in grape juice, let steep overnight, all of the color from the powder was absorbed and it was equally as strong as the same amount in a glass of wine/shot of liquor.

I'm not sure how much I used, just enough to saturate the bottom of a shot glass I guess per dose. It seemed to extract fine in a small amount of liquid.

What's the average dose you guys take? I once did 10 gr in a bottle of wine, let it soak for more then 24 hours and only started to feel something when the bottle was almost empty. Guess it wasn't only the lotus that gave me that feeling :wink:

Around 1/5 to a 1/3 gram of 5:1 extract.

Maybe I'll try the grape juice idea just to get an entirely subjective experience (minus any possible placebo of course). If that doesn't work, I could always through it into a bottle of vodka and just enjoy both the alcohol & blue lotus  :cheers:

from my knowledge, those crystal extracts are not that well processed.

Blue Lotus synergizes well with alcohol so make sure to drink enough to get mildly drunk.
