So Yesterday I received my package of cactiseeds.
20 of each. San Pedro, bolovian torch, peruvian torch and peyote.
I've read a lot beforehand and I am still not too confident to be honest.

Anyone here with some experience with growing any of these from seed?

I am NOT looking for ways to grow them as fast as possible at all, I Just want to cultivate these sacred beings as good as I could and threat them with the respect they Reserve so I can enjoy the experience when the years passed and the time has come.

I was thinking about trying coconutsoil but im feeling Like they Just gonna rot this way

Talk to them regularly. The CO2 from your breath and the sounds and perhaps being spoken to is very beneficial for the plants.

>implying talking to your plants for a few minutes a day is enough to statistically impact their CO2 intake
Human breath exhaled is only 4 to 5% CO2 by volume, look it up, and that is like a butterfly's fart in a plant setting where it will disperse rapidly.
>implying you can't just seal them in a transparent container and flood it with CO2 for a day at a time or so, using CO2 canisters or baking soda / vinegar reactions, which would be 1000x more efficient than breathing on them

I don't think the studies that support talking to your plants were very rigorous, I think they mostly share their company with that bullshit Japanese study about freezing water to different songs and recording an emotional reaction in the crystals, but anyway for the sake of slayer, you might as well talk to them, can't hurt.

I like the way Santana explains it, he said something along the lines of "the music is the water, and you're the hose," the music isn't coming from you, so much as passing through you. The less you try to control it the better it comes out, and psychedelics just help you get out of your own way.

I don't disagree with your assessment that people should really know what the fuck they are talking about before they talk down about someone's work, but part of me feels that simple enjoyment is almost left out of the equation. Do I need to know why a piece makes me feel a certain emotion in order to validate the experience?

yeah well lets just remind us both that we are currently talking about contemporary "modern" art.

They make the art for the audience that actually go to shows, which just happen to be people who have studied fine art on some kind of academic level, they make it for them to enjoy, you may not enjoy contemporary artworks but in 20-40 years when that work has a few books written about it explaining why its good then maybe you can learn to enjoy it.

keep in mind, when people like picasso and max ernst showed their work they were practically ridiculed by the public because what they saw was derivative and "pfft thats supposed to be a person! looks nothing like it!!" but over time people came to understand picasso, people began to understand why cubism is a good artform because the people who could analyze art could then water it down and explain it to people, via journals etc, this is why the manifesto was so popular during the early 20th century because it gave people a brief understanding of why the art should be taken seriously.

So if you saw van goghs starry sky sitting on the ground next to some drunk half asleep trying to sell it to buy booze and have sex with prostitutes you would walk right past him and his work because it wouldn't look good to you, you would think "pfft that poor drunk cant even blend the brush strokes, those buildings dont look like buildings and the colours are just all wrong"

So enjoyment is part of the equation, its just that you will never see the artwork anyway so why make art you enjoy if you're never going to see it or understand it? Academics enjoy contemporary art and its not on some pretentious level its because they can delve deep into the artwork on a level most people cannot, they understand form, process and materials etc they can see the artist bending the piece of metal, stumbling upon the object, painting the brush strokes on the tree. Do you know what i mean?

If everything was just a perfect replication of a landscape people cant think or talk about that because its just a landscape, try writing 1000 words about a landscape painting that looks like a photo, you'd get maybe 500 or so words in and run out of things to say, but when you have something like edward kienholz you could literally write 10000 words about some of his works.

Anyways i hope thats kind of explained it.

Looking to maximize what will either be an LSD experience,an experience with San Pedro, or a few sessions with DMT.

Currently, I am employing some tactics to prepare not only myself physically but mentally as well. In the past, I have taken psychedelics casually and without much respect and because of that haven't had what could be considered a breakthrough/mystical/profound experience with anything in over two years.
In addition, I have only lightly treaded these waters since a very difficult mushroom experience in early 2015 i.e. have tripped less than 5 times in two years now.

I have some agenda I will be going thru to ensure I have a better time:
>clean house
>abstain from all substances for at least three days before the experience
>limited if any cannabis use during the trip or prior (trying to cut down on this in life entirely)
>eating properly and lightly in the days leading up to the trip i.e. no overly salty or sweet foods, whole foods, no pre prepared nonsense and trying to incorporate fresh produce as much as possible
>proper yoga routine that is roughly 45 minutes leading up to the day
>good nights sleep the night before
>one possible trip sitter
>an empty house for the day and a retreat space for the comedown (share a house with parents currently. they accept my use of these substances but dont agree so dealing with them in the tail of the trip is the best situation if at all)

I want other suggestions on what you do for your trip if you have a routine and method for ensuring the best possible outcomes. (pic related. some of my pedros)

Sounds like you have a good plan brotha man. I haven't tripped in about two years but I had a whole routine down when I was going to university. I had a couple of different rituals depending on the plan though (inside, outside, etc) that changed whenever I moved somewhere. I tripped in nature a few times and it was awesome but by far the comfiest was at my college apartment and I usually only used this as a method to unwind and relax.
>Have a cozy little apartment on the top floor with all sorts of tidy art deco movie posters and tapestries, no balcony but a splendid view from my window of neon lights from local businesses (bodega right below my apartment, 24 hour pizza place, mom and pop deli/general store, and a movie rental place).
>I'd make sure everything was clean and that I had a full week prior to think about things.
>I would trip on Friday nights as I didn't have class on that day and I would have two days to recover
>I'd set up a music playlist as well as a selection of visualizers. I'd pick one movie and usually go buy a new PS4 game that I was hyped for (sounds weird, I know), stock fridge with sour beer, fresh cut melon and strawberries, a gatorade or two
>Smoke a little bud and meditate first thing in the morning
>My buddy would come over around 4pm, he'd bring all the acid and I'd buy a fresh sack of weed from him
>We'd roll three or four bombers and then go get dinner at the deli
>Turn out the lights and drop the cid around 7pm, I'd go wash my hands and look in the mirror, start the movie (the original Dawn of the Dead was a favorite) and share a joint and crack a beer
>By the time the movie was over, we'd be full tilt. We'd turn on the playlists and zone out for hours just staring at the neon out the window.
>When we came down, we'd usually just get really baked and play the new video game which was always a surreal experience. One time we got Xcom 2 and sat and played for at least ten hours.
I know this isn't the most spiritual but goddamn if it wasn't always cathartic and positive.

If you live in the United States then look up "transformational music festivals" and avoid burns and rainbow gatherings. Prepare to meet weirdos and hippie new age spiritual types. Also if you are into psytrance there are relatively small communities of psy freaks all over the states. At any of these events come sunset it will start to get weird as fuck as most people in attendance will start dosing.

Do you think you could get stuck in a trip for what you perceive to be years, or even hundreds or thousands of years?

Since time perception seems to be subjective (ie. it's not constant - time seems to slow down when I smoke weed, for instance), I would think it could be possible (with the right kind of drug or something) and it seems terrifying. If you took a drug such that a minute felt as long as an entire year...?

'noids. Couldn't say what strand as it was just hitting American markets around '09 and I was only 17 at the time so I had a friend buy me a batch. The manufacturer could've mixed something or they just spilled some bullshit in it.

Essentially, I experienced ego death on this shit while being whisked away to what I can only describe as the deepest, darkest pit of Hell where my very soul was being torn in every direction. Felt like thousands of years, convinced myself I had died, etc. all the characteristics of ego death. I had very, very little experience with drugs at the time so as you can imagine I was pretty fucked up over it.

How do you guys deal with stress? Not the chronic type but the acute type

Psychedelics have made me be much more in control of every emotion I have except for stress, I am the worst kind of person when it comes to stress, at the outside I seem pretty chill but on the inside I am dying of stress. My tolerance to stress is literally non-existent and I can't seem to improve it, just THINKING about HAVING stress is enough to give me that feeling in my stomach. I keep telling myself in moments of stress that everything will be OK and I just need to relax but honestly it barely helps anything. Literally writing this post is giving me stress.

As long as there is nothing much to care about I am absolutely fine, but when there is just one thing I can stress over I will do it and even when the acute stress is over I still continue feeling this "tensed up" feeling for the rest of the day, which results in me stammering. It might be easy for people who are not me to say like "bro just relax dude its gonna be fine" but I keep telling myself this to no avail whatsoever

Periods of a lot of acute stress push me into periods of VERY bad chronic stress in which I just constantly feel stressed out for no reason whatsoever, it comes to the point where I literally find no joy in life because I am constantly stressed out and start getting depressed and suicidal

I come to you guys in hopes of help, because I don't know where to start working on this.

No, it seems like you're doing the right thing. Its unfortunate but unless you're tripping all the time you'll get stressed out from day to day life so its best to learn how to cope sober.

Theres a lot of philosophies that can help with this, anyone that hasnt had success with this will shit on me but stoicism, absurdism, nihilism, existentialism, and spiritual paths like buddhism and hinduism can help you if you're open to them.

If you're not then i recommend becoming a drug addict. (Not really) Listen to Alan Watts and meditate though. The stereotypical hippie shit exists for a reason, it will actually make you more chill unless you're actively sabotaging yourself to avoid taking responsibility for your mental health, which i dont think you are.

Also exercise, eat healthy, dont shirk responsibilities, go outside, forgive yourself and others, and BE CREATIVE as often as you can and in as many ways as you can think of. And tell anyone in your life thats manipulating you to fuck off.

Btw i didnt mean choose a philosophy and follow it, i meant take bits and pieces from every philosophy or religion that fits with your current worldview and run with it.

Sorry, I'm not trying to mislead anyone. I've explored Syrian rue about a dozen times, and from my experience, the full MAO inhibition effects last for about two hours, so if you're taking the beta carbolines separately from the psychedelic tryptamines for some reason, I have always felt that it's best to take them within two hours of that so that you don't 'waste' your psychedelic tryptamines. Partial MAO inhibition probably lasts a while longer than two hours, but that means there's some MAO-A available to react with the psychedelic tryptamines, which will lower the amount of tryptamines available to work their magic.

So I got these chocolates that contain shrooms.

Now here's the thing. The guy I bought it from said there's also a "special herb" from Thailand or some shit in it. It's supposed to make the brain more receptive to the psilocin.

I thought it was bullshit at first but, they do seem stronger than just shrooms as they are. But what could it be? MAOI?

Has anyone ever felt through a psychedelic that we live a simulation?

I had my first acid trip which only was 280µg but COMPLETELY destroyed my ego to the point where (I thought) I felt the fabric of spacetime running past me and other physical properties of the universe, I have done many many mushroom trips ranging from 3-7g and not even once have I been this close to complete destruction of my ego.

I felt my consciousness dissolve in a stream of information/electricity, what felt like the smallest particle in the universe we live in, it's hard to explain it but I just did

I felt myself in other parallel universes, I felt as if our universe was just one of an infinite number of other universes, feeling like I was at two or more places at the same time were very common

The only thing that just kept popping in my head were fibonacci spirals inside of fibonacci spirals and something that I would describe as a rope laying in a loop were you pull at both ends and the loop gets infinitely small, in my mind infinite universes were opening and collapsing

I couldn't sleep for a very long time so I stayed up untill 8 writing my thoughts down because I thought I had some theory about the universe, but I dont feel like typing it out if nobody's interested

I don't know if its just the drugs that made me see stupid shit or that what I was feeling was very real, I've always had stranger experiences with drugs than most people, I feel like I can become conscious of the very formation of my thoughts and inner mechanisms of my brain on psychedelics

Videos and documentaries are made with their target audience in mind. If it isn't entertaining enough or doesn't provide enough of a sense of wonder or mystery there won't be a wide enough audience to warrant the costs of production. There's nothing all that biased about it, it's a pretty simple concept. Usually papers are so filled with technical jargon and methodically constructed that a layman couldn't even make sense of it, and even if they could it couldn't hold their attention.

Honestly not sure why I quoted martin here, shit's obviously bait because no one is dumb enough to miss the point of what was said to that degree and instead interpret it in the most annoying and stupid way possible.

Anyway, the reason something presented as a form of written media is more likely to be worth the time it actually takes to read is for the exact same reason documentaries and videos and shit aren't. The people who are actually interested enough about the subject are willing to actually put in enough effort to seek out the available information on it and consume it in the most dry, boring form it could be presented in.

All in all this is some pretty common sense shit if you just take a minute to think about everything. If you're partial to documentaries and youtube videos rather than looking up papers to read it's not a big deal or anything. The level of the learning material might be lower but that doesn't necessarily say anything about somebody's intelligence, it just means you're going to be learning an over simplified version of all the concepts relating to something and need to keep in mind that it's probably inaccurate as fuck because you can't explain complex things in a simple way without sacrificing the resolution of the information that's presented.

You definitely makes some good points but I would make an exception for video essays about film, where its just logical to use the same medium to discuss the subject matter. For example, if you want to talk about why a scene in a film doesn't work, its more clear to the viewer if they can actually -see- the scene via a video essay. The golden rule in film is show don't tell, so I think it makes more sense to show your point in a video essay then to explain the entire scene in written form.

As to-
>if it isn't entertaining enough or doesn't provide enough of a sense of wonder or mystery there won't be a wide enough audience to warrant the costs of production

Except some documentaries are fuelled by government money, such as the Blue Planet by the BBC.

I don't think 1 is necessarily better then the other, but if we're talking pure knowledge and level of detail then you're probably right for the most part.
pic related is probably one of the best books ive ever read, and it certainly has a lot of detailled language especially for a translation.

Considering a heavy dose of 5-MEO-MiPT is 15+mg according to

If you couldn't obtain it online for whatever reason, how much would you pay for that amount from a dealer? Is $12 reasonable? What about $10 or $15?

Also, how much do psychs in general go for in your region?

OP, consider what you're saying here.
obviously, you're a businessman/woman and im not here to knock that.
What i'm here to tell you is marketing.
Let's start with the first part of your post here.

"Considering a heavy dose of 5-MEO-MiPT is 15+mg according to Erowid".
Now, i may come off as a LITTLE assumptive here but you seem young if you're asking an online image board how to sell RC's.

Let's play the what if game. You sell Johnny Dumbfuck over there 5 of these pills with 15mg inside. He takes them ALL and says fuck your advice and erowids.
little johnny dumbfuck dies from an unforseen consequence of an understudied chemical. his blood is now on your hands despite your best intentions and advice.

How do we stop this from happening? Dunno about you, but i've noticed the cheaper and more readily available a drug, the faster and more rapidly itll get consumed. what you have here, is a psycehdelic novelty/oddity. likely, nobody is going to know WHAT the fuck you've got, how to take or where it originates.
this puts you in a position of not only being a salesperson but a quasi pharma chemist as well. do you wanna buy something from someone that has no idea what to tell you about it? research this to the fullest extent you can. ask questions online. people will answer you if you get lost. DONT SELL TIL YOU KNOW YOUR PRODUCT

I wouldn't pay you jack shit cause 5-MeO-MiPT sucks, but for real? $12? That's bullshit. It's worth $5 tops and you know it. However, >>880149 is pretty much spot on about everything, safety wise. If you meet another RC fan though you gotta give them the homie price.

I'm interested in peoples experience with ethnobotanicals outside of the common ones like weed and psilocybin. They've been something that's intrigued me on an academic level for a while and I finally went out to the smart shop and bought some to start experimenting with. I bought:

>kanna (shredded and a 100x extract)
>wild dagga
>kratom (bali white)
>Banisteriopsis colorada
>blue lotus

I skipped over amanita muscara this time because it was expensive and the ones they had looked past their prime.

Tonight I planned on rolling a 1 gram joint of the shredded kanna for my first experiment. I'll write up a post once I do that but I'm interested in hearing other people's thoughts about and experiences with using ethnobotanicals as visionary drugs.

I should clarify that last point, I'm not really talking about using these drugs just as drugs in general (which there's nothing wrong with, but would fall out of the purview of this board), but specifically about using them to explore consciousness (i.e. as psychedelics). I've seen plenty of reports from people claiming that all of the drugs I've purchased and many more ethnobotanicals can induce psychedelic or visionary states with the right set and setting and other reports saying they do next to nothing or have no visionary value. I'd like to get some people who have experienced the former first hand with these drugs and others as well as contribute my own reports over the next few days if I find anything of interest.

Kanna is one of the most controversial drugs, I think it must be down to brain chemistry more so than other drugs. People say anything from its like a light mdma trip, to it does nothing, to it just makes them feel weird, to it makes them feel awful. I think theres a lot of activity we dont know about yet beyond the SRI and PDE4 inhibition

gotta correct myself tho, the second line should be about kratom instead of kanna

Kratom won't really expand your consciousness. It's possible to feel stimulation from it, it's possible to feel sedation from it. You will likely get a warm opioid buzz.

I'm inclined to agree with you. I smoked the kanna and it didn't really do anything so I did like 8g of the kratom and nodded out lol, idk why I made this shit thread

Also I guess I didn't mean "explore consciousness" I mostly meant induce dreamlike states with visuals, which the kratom did in a way because I got a real nod off it and did that thing where you drift into dreams that feel like they're forever but only last a few minutes

I smoked some salvia while tripping on a small lsd dose and had a full blown ego death, really potentiated both substances.
