(Day 1 – Day 6)

This is the mysterious container…look down for more.

My love for this substance is not unknown, so there’s nothing much
to say here. I planned to go on a 3 day run, but some things came up
and I had to extend it. It wasn’t pretty towards the end. Eating only
dextroamphetamine sulfate tablets and water for days is making your
stomach endure things it’s not built for. I had to abort the run by the
fifth day, because I thought I was going to kick the bucket (again).
Angina, hypertension, couldn’t breath, very elevated body temperature,
sudden jabbing pains all over (someone diagnose this please), blah blah
you know the drill. The strangest thing was that I had swollen and red
hands and feet after drinking only a tiny bit of water. I think
most of the problems would not have occurred if I forced myself to have
(reasonable) water intake every few hours and eaten something. It’s a
useful drug for studies and work…in moderation. My attempt to terminate
the run did not succeed on the fifth day (with benzodiazepines), but I
managed to sleep on the sixth day. Meth was insufflated and dexies were
taken orally. There was an attempt to insufflate meth to try and keep
awake for the LSD visuals, but no amount could keep me awake after the
alcohol. :)

Peppermint Peckers!

The tin is just nice for storing meth, crushing dexamphetamine tablets and shards of meth. Stimulants only please!

It looks sad…


(Day 5, Day 6)


I had 5 mg on the fifth day but it did not bring me to the place
called sleep. I stacked it with 20 mg diazepam after it that became
obvious, but it still didn’t push the issue into the agenda. I consumed
only 2 mg on the sixth day with 10 mg diazepam and alcohol, and was
asleep within hours. This benzodiazepine seems to have lost quite a bit
of its hypnotic effects for me. Sometimes it makes me feel drunk and
anxiety-free and happy like Xanax (alprazolam) does, and thus I stay up
with a contented grin, but not sleep.


(Day 5, Day 6)


This particular benzodiazepine makes me extra sleepy. I only have a
limited stash (now I have none :p) so I tend to squirrel it away for
the moments when I really need the hypnotic effects.


(Day 5, Day 6)


I smoked quite a few bowls of weed before the appetite suppressant
effects of meth/dex was overridden. I ate a normal sized meal on the
fifth day (with lots of candy) and another one on the sixth day. I use
the word bowl and cone interchangeably and by that, I mean the


(Day 5)


I attempted to potentiate the benzodiazepines on the fifth day with
ketamine to induce sleep. Approximately 100 mg was insufflated, it
didn’t k-hole me, and only minimal ketamine effects were felt. I don’t
know if it’s because of quality issues or other factors.

Ready when you are

Enter Marquis – Bubbling (?) but no color change

Enter Simons – No color change

Ketamine will not react with Marquis or Simons.

Caution: Please note that benzodiazepines in combination with ketamine may suppress breathing.

Psilocybe subaeruginosa

(Day 5)

Since I couldn’t sleep anyway, I thought “fuck it” and consumed some
magic mushrooms. :) Benzodiazepine’s disinhibiting effects might have
contributed to the decision to take several different substances on the
sixth day. I don’t know the amount of mushrooms that was taken, but it
was fairly fresh. It produced some minor visuals and lots of laughter.
I actually went to uni while under the influence. :) No paranoia was
noted, probably due to the clonazepam. I went with CT on a mushroom hunting trip last week and we shared the haul. The pictures from that trip is here:




Salvia Divinorum

(Day 5, Day 6)


This is 5X salvia extract, courtesy of CT aka My Generous
Friend. ;) I smoked some on the fifth day with a bong and a (dodgy)
lighter. It’s supposed to be smoked with a butane lighter, the sort
that produces a flame that burns hot and fast for maximum effects. I
did not notice anything except a mild “ketamine feeling” the first
time. I smoked it again during the mushroom trip and it produced some
nice visual distortions. The best one is the way the area where two
walls come together began to flow downwards like a waterfall. What is
with me and waterfalls on mushrooms anyway? I would like to try it
again with a butane lighter and no other substances to get a feel for
this herb.

Caution: Salvia Divinorum is illegal in Australia.


(Day 6)


I also dropped a tab of acid on the morning of the sixth day. I
don’t know what lead to this decision…I was just sitting there, doing
some revision and unable to sleep when I thought:

“You know…a tab of acid would be great right now. I wonder if it would give me greater insight into this revision I’m doing.”

Duh. :) It didn’t, but it sure was fun. I was tired as fuck though,
and hurting all over, and I was expecting a bad trip, but it was a good
one. This is the Buddha tabs that I had written about previously. That
one and the amanita muscaria report made “Erowid’s Recommended Report”.
=D It did hurt the site’s bandwidth though, due to the direct linked
images. But hey, it got Erowid’s Recommended Report! :)

Anyway, I think this is a different batch from the previous
one. It looked smaller than the previous tabs and the cardboard was not
as easily dissolvable as the previous one. It seemed (qualitatively)
weaker too. However, there was an incident regarding this which might
have caused that. I put them into my other stash drawer WHICH IS RIGHT
BESIDE THE HEATER! LSD is sensitive to heat, and I only realized after
noticing that the drawer is kinda warm after an hour or so, and moved
it to another place. It still is psychoactive, but sadly, the strength
of the LSD seems to have been reduced.

It’s not dissolving…

There wasn’t any paranoia on this either, probably due to the
clonazepam. The clonazepam was also responsible for making me search 30
minutes for the acid tabs after I dropped it, only to find it was right
beside me all along. The best visual from this trip was right when I
was about to sleep…I found the pillow occupied by large and transparent
organisms. It’s the ones that we learnt in high school Science…the
ones that are one class above single cell organisms. They weren’t
moving, but once in a while they would wave their feelers around a bit.
It made me a bit wary about sleeping on the pillow. :)

95% alcohol + cannabis

(Day 6)

The (190) proof is in the pudding

I made a batch of this last year and found it to be weak, so I made
another batch this year and put more cannabis into it. 95% alcohol
(sold as Everclear in the US) is available in a few bottle shops here.
I don’t know the legal status of spirits with this strength, but I
don’t think it’s illegal. It is hard to find though, I haven’t seen it
displayed anywhere, I had to ask for it by name and it was produced
from the storeroom.


Basically, you put (finely shredded) cannabis into the bottle and
let it sit around for a few weeks. I recommend filtering the mixture
after that because I got a mouthful of soggy (really soggy) weed and
nearly retched. I can’t describe the texture, but I didn’t like it. :)
Alcohol was the magic ingredient, it put me right to sleep when
combined with benzos. Benzodiazepines alone have consistently failed to
produce the appropriate hypnotic effects for me now. Alcohol is the
missing link,

“And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and
he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.”

not my day job! :)

Messy Meth (Hello Nurse)

The best delivery system I’ve seen to date!

I have too many things to do so I’m going to keep this short. I had
a Class A meth induced freak out yesterday. It was my 5th day without
sleep and food (but plenty of meth and dexamphetamine), and I had
forced myself to half a pack of Tim Tams (chocolate biscuit, very
sugary sweet). I was browsing around when I felt my hands go completely
white like there wasn’t any blood. I was feeling very confused,
sweating, hand tremors, extreme dizziness and my vision was fucked.

I felt my blood pounding in my head, had sore muscles, my face was
crawling and my hands had parts that looked black too, which freaked me
out. I’ve heard something about hypoglycemia before and I searched for
it. I read some medical sites about starvation induced hypoglycemia,
reactive hypoglycemia after a high sugar meal stuff like that. I was in
a bad state of mind, and reading those made me worse coz I had those
symptoms. I spent 6 hours reading and debating whether or not to go to
a hospital.

Hmm…nah, I concluded, it’s just a meth freak out, not that
hypothingamajic. Sleep deprivation, overt CNS stimulation for prolonged
periods of time, you’re stressing that grey matter, not getting
starvation/reactive hypoglycemia. The symptoms came and went and I
thought okay, I’ll just eat something that’s not simple sugars to
re-stabilize…forced two small pieces of chicken about the size of a
thumbnail down and well, basically got worse.

The symptoms came again, even worse this time and I was really freaking out. Why?

The risk of permanent neurologic deficits increases with
prolonged hypoglycemia; such deficits can include hemiparesis, memory
impairment, diminished language skills, decreased abstract thinking
capabilities, and ataxia.

Basically, they advice quick medical attention because you’ll damage
your brain the longer you wait. There was one site that said go,
because the risk of not going is permanent brain damage. Fuck, I
thought. I still didn’t want to go, but I was scared coz I had these
effects towards the end during the last long meth run (6 days) too.
Ketoacidosis, hemiparesis (I don’t even know what this is!!),
neurological damage. Medical terms swirling in my head…

I decided that it was just methamphetamine induced paranoia and
sleep deprivation induced erratic thought patterns. Nothing to worry
about, I’ll just pop a couple (maybe more than a couple, har har)
benzos, down some beer, smoke some weed, get some food in me and sleep.
Except, it got worse, and got me seriously worried about my mental
health. Brain damage!!! NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve always held my
superior intellect (in my opinion :p) in high regard and I don’t want
to fuck that up.

I guess the last straw was when I couldn’t think or speak normally.
I was having trouble getting what I thought into words and my speech
was abnormally…well, abnormal. My precious brain is getting fried, I
thought. What if it’s really hypoglycemia and not meth paranoia? It’ll
be STUPID to not go for a checkup, when neurons are at stake. I flushed
all my drugs down the toilet and my friend (can’t name him coz that’ll
give away my identity) took me too the hospital. Thanks buddy, I owe
you one! ;)

Well, at the hospital, I had to wait for ages while the triage nurse
(the person that evaluates all incoming patients) fucked around. Most
triage nurses are bitches (and that’s a fact) but you can’t blame them
too coz it’s their job to sort out the emergencies and non-emergencies
for better efficiency. I’ve had experience with them before, I had to
wait for ages before I finally got approved after throwing up blood.
That time, I saw a guy with a broken arm cursing coz he had to wait
ages too.

I think you have to be 5 minutes away from death to get instant
approval from triage nurses. They have the “police syndrome” aka the “I
feel like God, I have so much authority bow before me lesser beings”
disorder. Anyway, I finally got a little bit of mini-God’s time and she
took my blood sugar with a tiny device that pricks the finger, all the
while telling me off. I have to say that not all triage nurses are like
this though, the previous one I saw was much nicer.

Well, she told me I had a blood sugar level of 6.7 which is normal
“and probably even better than mine” (her own words) and asked me
whether I wanted to see a doctor. I said no, because if it wasn’t
hypoglycemia, I don’t have to worry about brain damage. She berated me
for not eating (I didn’t tell her about my methamphetamine use – my
policy is disclosure on a “need to know” basis) and was a general
asshole about it. Regardless, I thanked her and stood up and she
impatiently asked whether I wanted to see a doctor again and I said no
(again). Major fucking bitch with a capital B.

Well, anyway, all is good except that I flushed good drugs down the
toilet for no reason. I know from experience that hospitals won’t
notify police or anything but try telling that to a paranoid delusional
after a meth binge. Anyway, I still have the symptoms but my conclusion
is that it’s just extremely high blood pressure from frequent meth
re-dosing. It went away after stopping and sleep. Did I really go on a
break? I’ve been using it too much, I don’t want to go into specifics,
but it’s too much.

Enough about that, yesterday was a great day for mushrooms but I
think that’s gonna be in a different post coz it’s completely
unrelated. Anyway, I didn’t think I did any serious harm, but my
intellectual abilities sure went down several notches today. It’s quite
noticeable and I’m still waiting for the verdict – benzo related
(temporary) or overheating + high blood pressure (permanent). Hope that
it’s the former, wish me luck people. =D Well, fuck this wasn’t short
after all. Ah…methamphetamine, you’re such a contradiction – my best
friend and my worst enemy.

I had gotten another foil of heroin about a month ago and it’s been
sitting in my stash drawer ever since. I’ve been worried about this,
being raided and found in possession of heroin is a different scenario
than being raided and found in possession of cannabis. In the interest
of limiting my legal liability, I’ve consumed it last night. ;)

Anyway, this heroin is chunkier and more voluminous than the previous one I got
[]. It’s sourced from the same place (Springvale – no harm
in mentioning the name, everyone knows it’s a hotbed of street level
heroin dealing anyway), although from a different dealer. This dealer
was squatting with a friend when I approached him and asked if he had
any smack.

Well, to tell you the truth, I was terrified at the nonchalance of
this dealer. It was in broad daylight (afternoon) when this happened,
and it was at a high traffic area. He said it’s A$50 for a foil and he
nudged his friend, who looked to the left and then to the right to spot
for police activity and then PULLED OUT A HUGE BAG CONTAINING AT LEAST
200 FOILS.


To say I was appalled is an understatement. At this point, I was
about to bolt at the utter indiscretion of the dealers. I was literally
shaking in my boots (although I wasn’t wearing boots) while this deal
was happening. This was in broad daylight, at a high pedestrian traffic
area, and in a place where undercover cops is known to be operating and
yet this dealer just looked left and right and then grinned and handed
me a foil.

Well, that’s the last time I’m going to score on the street.
Theoretically, the police would be going after them and not me, but
still the risk is there. Anyway, I just held on to the foil in my hand
so I could just drop it at the slightest provocation should I be
apprehended. Luckily, nothing of that nature happened and I got back
safely and it’s been sitting in my drawer since then. I’m not a big fan
of heroin, but I just wanted a second experiment.


Well, I crushed it up and insufflated (snorted) it last night. It’s
a common misconception that heroin can only be injected. Although
that’s the most efficient way to use it, I’m not interested in
injecting anything due to the various issues surrounding that route of
administration. [Edit: *cough* Er…yes, I have since decided I
wanted experience with that, so I IV’ed methamphetamine after setting
up a safety framework :p] The second most efficient route (smoking) is
logistically challenging as well, since I don’t own a glass pipe.

Thus, I just crushed everything up to a fine powder, racked it into
a line and up it went. I snorted half into my left nostril and the
other half into my right. I don’t know if there’s any difference in
doing that, but I do know from experience that substances should be
finely powdered and snorting should be hard enough to get it into your
sinuses and yet not so hard that it goes into your lungs or down your
throat (thus wasting it).

This is what I wrote:

burnt really bad going up
the drip was AWFUL
felt like bitterness x 10
chilly weather tonite
wearing little
windows open
yet…warmth :)
fuzzy warmth…
slowing down…
clothes is the fabric that shields your nudity from the world
heroin is the blanket that shields you from the world
that is all
god…everything is perfect

Cliché, but that’s what I felt. :) Effects were wearing off after 4
hours and I felt an unbearable and unstoppable wave of sleepiness, upon
which I slept for a solid 14 hours. However, that could just be paying
back my sleep debt from previous dexamphetamine runs. I felt it much
better this time, it’s very nice indeed, I’ll even use the word
‘wonderful’ to describe the effects I felt this time. I won’t be doing
it again anytime soon though. It’s a little too boring (no offense to
people who enjoy opiates) and expensive for me. Also, I’m aware of the
addiction potential, so thus ends my experiments with this substance,
unless there is reason for me to continue.

Pill: @ (brownish white with blackish brown specks)

Pill Name: @ (ats), dot coms
Pill Color: Brownish white with blackish brown specks
Content: MDMA (tested)
Availability: Melbourne
Circa: March 2003

@ – Front (digicam macro mode)

This is my first time taking Ecstasy (MDMA) at home. I’ve always
only taken it during raves. I wanted to see what Ecstasy feels like
after you’ve just got off a dexamphetamine run and is coming down like
a ton of bricks, tired as fuck, depressed and hungry from not having
any solid food in 52 hours. Ecstasy is a very mood dependant drug when
compared to other drugs. My serotonin and dopamine levels are probably
running on near empty after my dex run so I wanted to see if I would
still roll after taking a pill.

I didn’t get much sleep, but managed to knock myself out with 3 mg
of clonazepam and a couple of bowls of weed last night. I haven’t slept
for 48 hours before that. The last time I took Ecstasy was in October 2002
[]. Now that’s a war story to tell the grandkids. ;) I
overdid it back then, especially with the meth. :) With hindsight, the
cannabis I thought was laced with PCP was probably just a strong strain
after all. And all the pills were probably MDMA. MDMA gets converted
into MDA so hallucinations are possible if you take a lot. The amount
meth I consumed that time made me paranoid as hell and all strung out.

@ – Back (digicam macro mode)

Anyway, I ate half and snorted the other half. The brownish white @
tasted like pepper! I wonder if pepper is one of the things they used
as a binder or a cut. Speculating whether the black specks are pepper.
:) I felt apprehensive about snorting the other half after that. I did
insufflate the other half 5 minutes later anyway. It didn’t burn going
up, but after a couple of minutes…whoa! It felt like my sinuses were on
fire! It felt very uncomfortable for several minutes.

I didn’t roll at all, but my pupils were hugely dilated. No loved up
feelings, instead I felt irritable, depressed and tired. Running on
empty I guess. Very sleepy too. It was extremely dsyphoric during the
come up. Well, I’m going to smoke a couple of bowls of cannabis now and
eat something and get some sleep. Really, really depressed right now.
The @s are psychoactive, I feel some MDMA type effects but I’m just too
tired to roll I guess.

That was what I wrote until nearly 15 minutes later when the oral
dose kicked in. =D Still tired as fuck but more alert up now, cold
clammy hands pupils obscenely dilated, totally scattered. I am rolling
hard now, getting visual distortions from my prodigiously sized pupils,
and feeling good, but still very tired and hungry and there’s this
nagging feeling that I just want it to end and get some sleep. This is
a good MDMA pill if otherwise, but I’m just too tired and not in the

Lesson learnt: Don’t roll when you’re running on empty.

@ – Front (scanned)

Fuck, now I gotta deal with the horrible E-pression tomorrow. I
didn’t even get much out of the pill due to being tired. I’m so
scattered right now. Going to post it anyway, although I don’t make
sense to myself too. lalala

Okay, I’m rolling really hard now and feeling great but I’m still
tired. My jaws are permanently clenched! Hehehe! Man, I’ll be feeling
super now if I wasn’t tired. Should have eaten before I dropped the
pill. The lesson still applies thought. :) Feeling very loved up now!
What a wasted pill! I would have felt wonderful if I wasn’t hungry and
tired. I want to go out now, but I’m still too hungry and tired. And I
can’t eat. Yuck! Appetite suppressed. Thought of eating…ugh…blurry

My jaws are clenching so hard. I feel like throwing up. Hehehe Not
sleepy anymore, but tired and hungry. Hai…trying not to throw up.
Nausea. Music euphoria. Very loved up. I’m tired because I haven’t
eaten in days and I can’t eat now coz my appetite is suppressed. Heh!
My hands cold. My hands clammy. My feet cold. My feet clammy. :) If
only I wasn’t so tired, I’ll be out the door and off to a rave in

@ – Back (scanned)

Oh my God, such a body high right now. I sound so cliché but
touching feels wonderful. Next time I’m only going to eat Es coz
snorting just makes me feel the speedy parts without the good parts. I
want to talk more but I should stop before I make more of a fool out of
myself. ;)

P/S – This is not usually my report style but I’m still peaking now
and my scattered-ness can be pretty apparent. :) I could have waited
till tomorrow and edited it a bit but I don’t care, coz I’m happy now
and I WANT to post it. So there! :)

Lesson #2 would be DON’T TAKE E AT HOME! What a waste, going to a
rave would be so good right now. I think Lesson #2 supercedes Lesson #1
coz I’m feeling great now even though I’m running on empty. Haha!

Oh, I have a theory. When you don’t eat for a long time, instead of
absorbing any stuff you eat faster, it actually slows down the
absorption time because the interstines have slowed down their process
coz you dodn’t eat for too long. That’s my theory anyway about why it
hit me so late.

I’m not even tired or hungry anymore! Hah! Such a body high, touch
feels so good. Ignore the earlier Mr. Sour Puss paragraphs, I’m feeling
absolutely great right now! :) Ignore Mr. Sour Puss. Or taunt him! Mr.
Sour Puss, nyeh nyeh. I’m Mr. Happy right now! :)Okay, I’m not going to
write anymore, don’t want to waste the roll WRITING! I can’t even see
clearly anyway. :)

Pill report: White ? (Question Mark)

White Question Mark

Pill Logo: ?
Pill Color: White with dirty specks
Area: Melbourne
Date: February 2003
Other: The other side has a single score, the ? imprint is uneven and the pill has beveled edges.
Suspected contents: Ketamine

Scanned picture of the white Question Mark

This pill is going for A$20 instead of the usual A$35. That’s nearly
half the price of a normal pill. I didn’t expect it to be MDMA, but
since it was going for such a bargain price, I picked up two of these.
The pill has a ? logo on one side (not imprinted well) and a single
score on the other side. The pill also has beveled edges and has a hard
press. The pill is very thick too, thicker than usual pills.

Isometric view – pill is thick

I ate one and crushed the other one in an envelope. The pill isn’t
crumbly and I had to run a dog tag over the crushed pill several times
before it reached an acceptable consistency. I divided up the pill into
two lines and tried to rail it, but it was just too much powder for me
to snort comfortably in one go.

Size comparison with A$2 coin

It burns fairly badly while going up too. I’m not sure if that’s coz
of the cuts or because I didn’t crush the pill up well enough. I just
chucked it into an envelope and banged it about a bit and then ran a
dog tag over it to smoothen over the larger chunks. I did bumps over
the course of the night and it got me fairly high, but I didn’t K-hole.
The effects were felt in a couple of minutes.

The crushed pill

Anyway, I felt very significant nausea when insufflating the powder.
There was a strong psychological aversion to snorting more too, due to
the extreme nausea it causes. It made me retch several times, but after
a while it didn’t matter. Subjective effects seem to indicate ketamine.
I felt numb and dissociated and it didn’t last very long. At the peak,
I was feeling very drunk and it’s quite euphoric. It damn near put me
to sleep too, but I chugged a bottle of diet coke and was fine after
that. I was starting to return to baseline by the 2 hour mark.

It seems to be a nice ketamine pill, but I don’t have tolerance so I
can’t speak for the strength. I wished I insufflated the first pill
instead of eating it though. Personally, I think it’s a good ketamine
pill for A$20 but it’s definitely not MDMA so avoid if you’re shopping
for Ecstasy.

Tea fusion?


There is this strange strain of cannabis that’s going around lately.
I’ve gotten it twice from two different contacts. Visually, it looks
much hairier than the commercial strain, there are a lot of those light
tan colored hairs peeking out of the bud. It has an overpowering smell
of tea (!) but when you shred it, it smells like normal cannabis. This
strain is slightly more expensive than commercial but it’s worth it.
The strength is higher than average, higher than the commercial hydro
that’s widely available. The smoke is light and goes down very easily.
It seems to be a “fun” strain, light and happy high. :) I felt rather
giggly and happy, and it’s not stoney like the commercial hydro I
usually get. Interesting and very recommended.



Cones is a brand of joint paper cones made by Mountain High
[]. It retails for A$3.95 at Off Ya Tree, a local
headshop. I’ll be honest with ya, my butter fingers can’t roll good
joints. The joints that I make inevitably draws very poorly, due to the
cannabis not being packed tightly. Cigarette smokers, you know what I
mean. When you don’t ‘pack’ a pack of cigarettes by tapping it upside
down against your hand before opening, the draw (referring to the air
flow here) becomes very poor. I don’t know how to explain it, but
packing cigarettes optimizes the air flow and makes it draw better.


Anyway, enough about (the lack of) my joint rolling skillz. I
usually smoke marijuana using a bong because smoking it with joints
seems like such a waste of good cannabis. However, there are times when
toking on a joint seems appropriate, like during celebrations or in
situations where it’s not feasible to carry around a bong with you. The
Cones by Mountain High comes in a pack of three and is made using king
sized joint paper.


The instructions at the back shows two methods of filling the cone –
by pushing the cannabis into the cone using the supplied straw, or by
tipping the cannabis directly into the cone. Personally, I find the
first way to be easier. The cone can be laid flat against any surface
and filled by pushing the pre-shredded cannabis into the cone. This
makes it less prone to structural damage to the cone. I’ll explain more
in the paragraph below.


The second method is done by tipping the cannabis into the cone
instead of pushing it. The packaging of Cones has this removable hole
on the upper right hand corner with the word Remove. By
removing the hole and putting the package back side up, there is a
place for you to place the cone while you fill it using the second
method. The packaging of the front is such that it produces an elevated
platform for the cone to be placed in the hole when it’s overturned.
Very nifty indeed. However, this method makes it easy to accidentally
touch the cone with the card you’re using to drop the cannabis into the
cone. Doing this of course makes it bend at the weakest point (the
thinnest point closes to the filter) and has the potential to tear the
cone if you do it hard enough.


Now to the taste test. The paper used to make the cone is thin, and
it tends to burn too fast for my liking even if you’re not toking on
it, which is wasteful. The taste of the cone leaves much to be desired
as well. It has this rice paper taste which is unnatural and somewhat
distasteful. The taste of the paper tends to overshadow the sweet
tasting marijuana smoke. The structure of the cone is pretty flimsy as
well, but that shouldn’t pose a problem if you’re reasonably careful.

Personally, I don’t like it enough to want to buy it again. But it
certainly has its merits. The cardboard filter works well in keeping
the shredded cannabis in the joint instead of drawing it into your
lungs which is an ‘Ack!’ moment that I always have when rolling my own
joints. If you look hard enough, you can see small groove patterns in
the paper, like the ones most cigarettes have. This is to make the
joint burn evenly, and it does that well. A nice touch, this. Also, the
straw included in each cone is perfect for packing the marijuana into
the cone, leading to a very good draw.

It’s A$3.95, which isn’t really expensive, but you can get rolling papers for much less than that. I’ll prefer the Royal Blunts EZ Roll Tube [] though, if I want a change from smoking from a bong.

Caution: Possession of cannabis is against the law in most countries.

Royal Blunts Cognac Flavored EZ Roll Tube

The back of the packaging.

I purchased this blunt wrapper from Off Ya Tree a couple of days ago. It’s made by Royal Blunts
[] and I decided that today was a good day as any to
smoke a blunt, being Chinese New Year and everything. :) A blunt is a
cigar with cannabis inside instead of tobacco. It retails for A$3.95
and Off Ya Tree has several other flavors besides cognac. Cannabis sold
separately, of course.

Inside the packaging is a single leaf of tobacco and a plastic tube.

Anyway, the package is air sealed and has a single blunt wrapper
inside and a plastic tube, which serves the dual function of preventing
the leaf of tobacco from getting squashed in the package and to pack
weed into the blunt you’re rolling. The blunt wrapper was surprisingly
fresh, it didn’t reek like stale cigars do.

Rolling the blunt.

The blunt wrapper was easy to roll too, and it sealed by itself. I
did give the side of the wrap a lick to make it seal better though. I
used the plastic tube to pack the cannabis tightly, as I prefer the
draw of a tightly packed cigarette as opposed to an unpacked one. In
lieu of a roach (a cardboard piece you put at the end of joints as a
filter), I folded the end of the blunt and it works just as well. I
didn’t inhale any small bits of plant material even when I toked hard
on the blunt.

The blunt.

And the taste of the blunt…oh my God, it was simply divine! Very,
very tasty indeed. It will be hard to go back to smoking bowls after
this. The cognac flavored wrapper achieves this synergy with the choof,
providing this rich, satisfying smoke that tastes pleasant and smells
wonderful. It tasted like a good cigar with the sweet, sweet smoke of
cannabis instead of tobacco. The burn rate was very controlled too, the
tip burns slowly when you’re not toking on it and even when you draw on
it, it doesn’t burn that fast either, just a slowly moving red rim that
produces a nice lungful of that rich, satisfying smoke. It gives a
slightly different high too, there was the added stimulant high from
the tobacco leaf wrapper. Highly recommended!

Green Dragon

Green Dragon

Substance: Cannabis dissolved in 95% alcohol
Also known as: “Green Dragon”

The main ingredient

allowed to steep in the 95% spirit

Preparation: I shredded some cannabis buds into small bits
and put them in this 95% (190 proof) pure grain alcohol called
Spirytus. Yes, that’s 95% Vol/Alc. I think this is the highest amount
of stable alcohol you can have without it pulling moisture from the
atmosphere and re-diluting it self. This is similar to the spirit
marketed as Everclear in the United States. I got this bottle at a
Greek bottle shop near my place. It’s A$ 50 for the 500 ml bottle. The
cashier asked me what I wanted it for, and I said “to dissolve plant
material in” and he went “oh okay”. :) Heh.

The front of the bottle – Spirytus

Anyway, I did drink quite a bit of the stuff, it really packs a
punch if you drink it neat. I usually pour some of the stuff into a
plastic bottle of diet coke and drink it. I learnt that this could be a
bad idea though, the grain alcohol is also solvent grade so it could
dissolve plastic. I’m not saying that it can, I really don’t know, but
it could. It easily rubbed off the blue use by dates on those bottles
anyway. It also tends to turn a chilled drink into a warm drink. Yuck.

The back of the bottle – Spirytus Pure Spirit 95% Vol/Alc

I’m digressing. Anyway, before I came back for a holiday, I shredded
some cannabis buds and put it into what remained of the bottle. When I
returned a couple of days ago, I noticed that the alcohol had been
colored a nice green by the cannabis. The cannabis has been left in the
bottle for a total of 5 weeks (and 3 days) so that should be sufficient
to allow the THC to leach out from the plant into the alcohol. I kept
it in a dark cupboard all this while and it turned a deeper green when
I shook the bottle. Anyway, I felt that this was a good time as any to
have a taste so I took a couple of shots in some diet coke on an empty

The result after 5 weeks (and 3 days)

Time: 1:16 am

Poured 3 1/2 shots into 300 ml of diet coke. It tastes EXACTLY like
what marijuana smoke tastes like when inhaled. nice. yum. I think the
alcohol dissolved some nasty stuff from the plastic bottles too…yuck.
it tastes chemical. Chugged it anyway

Time: 1:40 am

Felt slightly drunk with classic finger numbness. heh.

Time: 2:07 am

Feeling slightly stoned too, but the alcohol is masking most of the
good aspects of mj. can feel enchaced auditory appreciation but no
munchies yet.

Time: 2:18 am

ah feeling slightly stoned now. :) good. but it’s a more relaxed
laid back kind of stoned though, not like the seriously stoned you can
get when you smoke bowl after bowl after bowl

Time: 2:27 am

it feels strange, but good. :) i’ve had alcohol + mj before, in that
order. drank a six pack and smoked a couple of bowls and felt great
too, but this is somehow slightly different to that feeling. for one
thing i don’t feel so sedated i’m about to sleep. perhaps that coz of
the caffeine? had a couple of coffees before this too. it is a very
nice feeling though, very laid back and chilly. much more mellow that
smoking bowls but it’s fun too. not as intense, and you have to consume
a whole lot of pesticide while at it too.

Time 3:15 am

Feeling wasn’t satisfactory so i pored another shot of the stuff
into a 500 ml can of beer and skulled it. i can smell the mj. mmm

Time: 3:34 am

feeling pretty good now. 1/2 drunkish 1/2 stoned but not a lot of
head fuck unlike when i’m stoned. it’s pretty mellow and nice though.
would go well with a couple of valiums but i’m saving my stash for a
rainy day.

Time: 3:50 am

yeah feeling nice. stoned and a little pissed at the same time. nice
nice nice. I’m watching My Wife is 18 – the one by Ekin Cheng and I’m
laughing myself to tears
not so funny is the fact that i watched disc 2 before watching disc 1 though coz the files were mislabeled on the network.

Anyway, the stuff was good, but not as intense as I would have
liked. Perhaps I should have dissolved more cannabis buds into the
alcohol, I’ll do that next time. Note that you need a high proof
alcohol to dissolve the stuff in, coz THC is alcohol (and fat) soluble
but not water soluble, thus you’ll want a high proof alcohol like
Bacardi 151 or even better, this 95% stuff.

Kind bud


I’ve had some problems getting a decent amount of cannabis ever
since I came back to Melbourne. Yes, I arrived here a couple of days
ago. The person I usually go through usually have no problems
in getting really QUALITY dank ass weed, but he is going through a
different supplier now. He related the story to me today while he
brought over some of his personal stash. Apparently, there were some
problems with the usual supplier in that he’s decided that he’s going
to quit supplying because it gives him too much temptation to do it
himself. So, my contact has to go through another guy, who has to go
through another guy, so there are some supply issues. The stuff is not
as good as the dank ass nuggets from the previous supplier but I still
consider it kind bud as it’s stronger, hairy-er and has more THC
crystals than the commercial quality weed I get from another guy. I
like this guy coz there’s not many people out there who delivers
(remember, mosts busts are made just after you’ve purchased) and is not a dodgy guy to boot. There are just too many dodgy people in the business.
