Swim has had his own Hashish
OD experiences. He has eaten straight hash before (don't go telling me you need to mix it with something with fat, it works!!) in sizable quantities (over a gram at least) and had some very intense experiences.
In particular one swim
was literally passing out. He will provide a short trip report below.
OD On Hashish?
Swim had some extra hashish on him on Wednesday (the beginning of the weekend in the Middle-East) and had a few hours to kill before heading to his friend's house to chill and smoke for a few hours after picking up some sheghra (type of hash).
Swim had a 1.5 gram piece of nice soft sticky afghanistani hash on him left over from the week and decided that he wanted to try oral consumption
again. He popped it in his mouth and chased it down with a glass of milk. Mmmmmmm...... though he accidentally chewed it a bit while breaking it down in his mouth so he got annoyingly sticky hash pieces stuck in his teeth! It was 5:30pm. The hash was quite potent but not laced with heroin
as is possible in the region. Swim had orally consumed hash before though only up to .5g and that was more than enough as is!! Also in those cases he didn't drink milk after ingestion, he just swallowed whole for various reasons (such as walking on to a military base and having a piece to deal with that you don't want to throw away!!)
An hour later he drove to his friends house 15minutes away. Swim and his friends decided to roll a small j with what they had left from the previous weekend to tide them over until the dealer arrived. They smoked it (between 4 people) while playing pool and chilling and then headed up to swim's friend's room to listen to some music and check out some funny shit on the comp. This was about 6:30pm to 6:45pm.
It is about this time swim really starts feeling the hash take effect. He notices another layer slip over the high from the joint. He recognizes the the lethargic feeling in his body and heavyness of the head that comes with eating hashish. He kneels down next to the computer to watch the clips playing as the chair doesn't feel comfortable anymore.
In another 15 minutes swim is feeling quite messed up. His head ways a ton. Seriously. He can barely hold his head up. His head would keep rolling to a side and he would have to use his hands to physically prop his head back up, which was quite a challenge as his arms were completely numb as well. Swim is getting visual like effects while watching the cartoons (joecartoon swim thinks) and is quite confused as to whats happening.
Another 30 minutes goes by and swim is not feeling well. He is extremely tired, as though he had taken 20mg or more of valium
. He is kneeling on the floor with his head resting on his friend's bed. He keeps trying to prop his head up or stand up but can't. At one point he manages to look in the mirror and sees that his eyes are fucked. They are completely covered with a large web of red and yellow veins branching across his eyeball, and the white that he can see is glazed over with a yellowish tint. Actually looking closer he sees that his eyes are completely glazed over, and his vision is a bit distorted even. He keeps alternating between half-lying on the bed and getting up and taking a few steps around.
Swim's friends are getting ready for the dealer to arrive about 15 minutes later when swim has had enough. He calls a friend to take him home. His is literally passing out, and in no condition to drive. He can barely walk. His coordination is about the same as if he had drank about 7-8 beers. He has trouble seeing and though he can hear people clearly when he pays attention he finds himself slipping into an unconscious (yet active) state where he doesn't pay attention to what people are saying, only hearing vague murmurs in the distance.
Swim gets picked up by a friend who can tell he is messed up. Swim goes straight to his bed and passes out. The time is 8:30pm - 8:45pm. Swim wakes up sometime between noon and one the next day feeling like crap. He is dehyrdated and his head hurts. He only has vague memories of what happened the night before, and doesn't feel like smoking the next day (odd considering he smokes every day).
Swim ate hashish once more before he left the middle-east, but it was a smaller dose, and much more pleasurable. Swim defines OD as when you take so much of a drug
to get a much higher proportion of negative effects to positive ones so that the entire experience is negative (for narcotics
he views OD as more of a lethal dose). Swim thinks it is possibly to OD on hashish, though he has eaten huge quantities of weed
and not had as much of a problem.
Swim thinks that if he finds a very hallucinogenic strain of hashish he may try to "OD" again to see how far he can push the visual and mental psychedelic
effects from eating hashish. Marijuana
seems much more like a hallucinogen
in this state.
Hashish is a helluva drug!
