Bought it cos of price. Found it impossible to eat (bits of wood). So I decided to make a tea of it. Boiled 10g in a saucepan for a few minutes, strained and drank. Spicy.. An hour later and no effect. Got the rest (90g), boiled it in a larger saucepan for 40 mins until liquid was very-very dark. Man this was like drinking pepper-sauce. Burned on its way down, had to chase it with milk on each gulp. Drank it all and nada.. It's four hours later and other than feeling a bit bloated I can honestly say i've never felt more normal..
Unless you chemically extract it (like ur man did on erowid), or somehow manage to ingest it I don't think it'll work for ya. Worth a try tho, now back to the best of the bunch oh yes, the mushies, they're quality!
