New to forum, Hello!
« on: February 01, 2019, 12:20:07 PM »
I'm Omnislug, In Oregon Now, lots of experience with plants/entheogens since I left how at 19 after graduating. Spent years living in the high desert of New Mexico exploring with Ayahuasca and other plant based medicine for personal growth and to heal trauma from my past. Did endless research learning the plants at that time, Reading Carlos Castaneda's books, 5 times over, and learned something new every time I re-read it. Ended up growing Turkey Red Phalaris years ago and that is where my interest here begins, I was COMPLETELY, COMPLETELY destroyed by >GRASS!!< before I even knew what to expect I was chewed up in gods mouth, spat out at lightspeed or more where I was completely blinded by raging incandescence all the while recapitulating all the harm I ever did to anyone/any thing in minute detail, as well as all the trauma ever done to me and all the lies I ever believed all ultra-fast-forwarded at me like a funneled nuclear blast to the head. Woke up in a fetal position on the floor where I cried waterfalls for the next hour at least.  Wouldn't take it back for a winning lottery ticket!


I love fishing/camping/foraging/blacksmithing/dreaming/my lady and all the wonderous plants I've had the blessing of knowing. I look forward to lots of reading here and learning.
Thank you for the Hive!

Hello Omnislug. Thank you for your introduction.

The details of Phalaris stories are always interesting. I wonder how many still consider Phalaris "the way of the future".

my experience shows it's DEFINITELY valuable, with the right strain and treatment.

Welcome, Omnislug!! Would be great to hear more about your Phalaris experiments in the Preparations section of the forum if you'd like to share. I'm sure lots would be interested in learning about how to work with this seemingly potent grass :)

well I didn't do an extract, I made tea from like I think an ounce or two of grass mixed with harmala, I only guessed how much I should use and I'm kinda glad I didn't use a lot more! I have a plant now that is suposedly turkey red but I'm not positive, if anyone has the ORIGINAL turkey red that actually contained 5 I'd be interested in trade or something. Don't know that I'd try it like a brew again since the content is so variable there is no way to gauge  your experience, I spent a LOT of time with the grass back then, so I guess I had a good feel for how much was appropriate.

Fascinating! Definitely sounds worthy of an experience report :)
