I missed it! Haven't been around for a few days....and it gets really interesting. Here's my post from mid-September.

Posted by Shelley ( on September 14, 2001 at 20:47:31:

55 year old white male. Episodic for 20+ years. Last cycle ended 1998. Current cycle began 7/23/01. Lithium, Verapamil, and imitrex injections were drugs of choice. All the homeopathic stuff tried over the years.

I won't go into a lot of details about the experience..there's plenty of old posts to read and advice from people more experienced
than we. But, I'll tell you about a few specifics.

2 gr. seemed to be the normal CH dose. We made the tea and my husband DOWNED it. Instead of the two beers feeling he had what Pinky said was a solid trip 3. Holy Moly! He vowed to kill me as soon as the cabinets stopped breathing. That
was 8/26.

As soon as it wore off, he had a HA. Then another. Shit! But wait; they're different. They've moved to his forehead and are much less intense. The number per day gradually increased.

Redose with 1 gr on 9/1/01. Still more of
an experience than he wanted....even tho we set a timer at 30 minutes and he didn't drink all of the 1 gr. tea. He starts feeling the rush in less than 2 minutes.

Headaches continue. Still lessened intensity, still in the forehead. No meds since he detoxed b4 the first dose.

Redose on 9/6 with .5 gr. Ahh, that's better. More like the mild effect that we expected the first time.

One last short, sharp twinge at 02:00 9/8/01; he was already planning a fourth dose. Then nothing...nothing.

So, you see, not everyone has the mystical, one dose experience. Obviously, he's quite sensitive to the chemical,yet he had to redose to achieve results. Why? Beats me.

Does he like it? No way. Will he do it again? Oh yeah....

Since we're doing our own research here...please, please follow Pinky's and Flash's instructions about brewing the tea, quick injestion, empty stomach, drug interactions, fats and MAOIs. If you don't you're introducing a lot of variables that may affect the results.

However, if you're like us, and have never done this recreationally, you may want to set a timer for 30 mins to make sure that the experience is not more than you bargain for.
