  1. As soon as the dates set I'll do whatever I can to be there.
  2. Dcliw you about to start shovelling compost into the trailer the hard way, when the RMS guy drives over in a loader, scoops up a bucketful and fills your trailer in one go.
  3. Hi all, I am about to start a course of daily doses of caapi to assist with treating anxiety and depression. I brewed up 50g of vine today, and plan to space this over a week, taking the equivalent of around 7g of vine daily in a tea. My brew was a simple water brew with only a tiny squeeze of lemon added at the start, and it was made with love and attention, I sang a few songs to it while cooking and also blew some palo santo smoke over it at the end. My hope is that it helps me break free from some bad mental patterns that are plaguing me lately, and I'll assess progress after a week. If things are going well, I will extend my course. Does anyone else have any experience with this? I'd be interested to hear your thoughts, and I'm happy to receive PMs or you can post them here. I also have Rue, but I am starting this experiment with Mama Caapi as I wish to develop a close working relationship with her, and have heard some good results. I'll try to post daily here as to how I am feeling and I hope this may eventually serve as a resource for others who may wish to try this path. I have taken SSRI's in the past, but they leave me feeling hollow and mediocre, like the feeling I used to have days after heavy Raving. I plan to make other changes in my life to complement this path, but one step at a time. Let's do this. I have a good feeling about it. Lots of love, G.
  4. OK, been an interesting few days. I've been in a really cranky mood the last two days, possibly, in fact most likely due to bad sleeping. I've had a few broken hours each night, but I depend on solid sleep these days (nights). It's been so hot and maybe the evening brews are affecting my sleep. Job stress is back too this week, meh. I had a super intense dream last night where I witnessed a motorcycle accident, and was trying to help the mangled victim. I woke up in horror and couldn't sleep again. I'm not sure what to make of it to be honest. I'm really looking forward to this weekend and catching up with the staunch crew again. I'll get to caapi vs rue soon. I need to think about how to put it into words.
  5. This brew feels great!
  6. This brew feels a lot lighter, uplifting almost. I'm doing nighttime doses this week, hoping for some good, deep dreams. Last night (day 1) I was fully immersed in dreaming. I was sure I was awake, and I got up to look in the mirror to find my beard had inexplicably disappeared overnight. This was most perplexing to me, and the only possible answer was that my wife had managed to shave me in my sleep. She admitted this when I asked. I think this should have been a lucid dreaming cue, but I never seem to pick them. Practice makes perfect I guess.
  7. Did you scarify and /or soak the seeds beforehand? This will help your germination rate. Also try smoke treatment, this can assist too.
  8. Bump. I have a stack of fresh rooted cuts ready. Pm me for details.
  9. Folks I have a small number of plants for sale from the Lamiaceae family. Pm me for details if you're interested.
  10. Today I performed a ceremonial brew up of 60g small caapi sections (a bit smaller in diameter than my little finger. I put in a handful of caapi leaf and a handful of viridis to add some light. Cooked it down to about 600ml, for 6 days of doses, equal to 6g per dose. Seems coincidental it's all 6's! Starting tomorrow.
  11. @hashslingr, I'll post something about my feelings for rue and caapi soon.
  12. Thanks buddy, I'm actually doing pretty well, I feel good mostly. I'm trying to get a boost though.
  13. Sorry for not updating in a while folks, life gets crazy hey? I've been doing well mostly, had an excellent summer. But this time of year also feels a bit sad as I know the long days and summery vibes are losing ground to the dark again. I've also felt the last week has been a horror in a lot of ways, folks here going through some shit (Sally, horsey and ano come to mind), and I've been through the wringer too. Time for another full week of caapi methinks. I want to prepare for a big weekend coming up with the cactus crew too. I'm going to brew up using younger vine and leaf this week. I believe leaf has a higher percentage of THH so I'll let you all know how it goes. I think I've turned a bad week on its head already, today was a shocker but I found a way to finish it on the front foot and made someone very happy!

  15. Don't do it Sally. Take a break, but please come back.
  16. Don't go Hoss.
  17. Sweet WB. Wow betide any guerilla growers in the area.
  18. 1 and 2 look like non PC pachanoi to me. I think 3 could be a pachanoi too as Bardo said.
  19. Ah let's get this thread back on the rails. I'll take that. And next gets: 1 x special lamiaceae cutting. A bag of Acacia obtusifolia seed. A small bag of fermented kanna A few small Peru x pachanoi tips And a surprise!
  20. Go to a stationery supplier and get a bunch of rubber finger stalls. Like this... https://www.officeworks.com.au/shop/officeworks/c/office-supplies/stationery/thimblettes
  21. As someone who has been arrested after a sniff in 2004, I wholeheartedly approve this post. Yeah, I had 0.2g on me at the time, wow, congratulations on the bust. I got a caution, which isn't a major black mark but it still pisses me off. It was the most humiliating moment of my life, being manhandled in a public place, with bystanders gawping like I had committed some heinous crime. It's all fun and games until it happens to you.
  22. Very true Ano. I think my personal record was around 4 days and the line between awake and dreaming was not at all clear. The closest approximation I can relate it to is datura without the dry horrors.
  23. Ima guessing the boss hoss gots an ace up her sleeve. A dark hoss...
  24. I think your biggest hurdle may be getting hold of starting material. Seeds have a notoriously short period of viability and shipping live cuttings has its own challenges which I'm sure you can understand.
