Calamus

Post by catfishrivers » Tue Jun 05, 2012 8:48 pm

Also, the smell of the oil is almost psychoactive in itself. I get a waft if stimulation when I inhale the smell. It strikes me as similar to both the enjoyable sensations I get from inhaling minty smells or camphor and also how smelling edit gets you a mini buzz sometimes.

Sounds logical enough to me. After all it is a form of vaporization. I like to do that with clary age oil.

yeah I just confirmed it, took the bottle straight up to my nose, uncapped, and took long deep breaths of the calamus oil. Just the natural vapors that come up out of the bottle on their own from my hand holding it were enough to cause a discernable head change...I sorta remember being able to do this with the bottle of clary sage oil I had too. Although, calamus seems more potent.

I remember an old ZombieSoul post saying the breating both oils (clary+calamus) was a good mix.

I think you're better off getting some fresh root anyway. Or try the gramineus 5x, there used to be a guy here that raved about that stuff.

can you soak fresh root and I wonder how much of a 5x would a first time call for and what about this 20x. Thanx for all your input guys as my camping trip is drawing close.

swim purchased a bunch of calamus 5x and 20x.swim will probably start with a couple grams of 5x and then depending on how that goes will try a gram of the 20x on another day as I will be camping and do not want any bad experiences.

It's not a knock you over the head kind of experience. It's prob not gonna be too much for you to handle or anything like that. Unless your stomach turns on you I guess. But prob yer ok with the extracts vs cwe or straight up root nibblins. Btw the effects of it are often much easier to tell when a person smokes edit a little bit after the calamus starts up.

yea I look forward to it. A normal camping trip of mine would be me being drunk the entire time and not sleeping at all. This one will be different as I am going with my kids and am trying to lay off the sauce for the most part. I also plan on sitting a lot.
