's experience opium
is a very relaxed, sedative effect. One can smoke/ingest and soon enough be happy to lay wherever one is for a very long time, unconcerned with just about anything. It will make SWIYs body feel light, and make him able to be comfortable in whatever position he is in.
Oxy on the other hand is much more lucid. Although a more powerful drug
, it is picked for treatment of chronic pain mainly because it allows one to function much more. Although one may still feel floppy, and in recreational doses still quite anaesthetised, SWIM found that he was much more able to do ... well.. anything.
If SWIY likes Oxy then he will probably enjoy opium. They aren't the same, but SWIY will find the experiences similar, and SWIY may well prefer opium. SWIM definitely does.
SWIM has found it difficult to describe to heavy pot smokers just how different the feeling of opium is from the feeling of being stoned.
Yes, SWIM knows that all the reports sound kind of similar, and the effects SOUND kinda the same. But don't think that with opium you just found yourself a 'new weed
'. It is NOT the same.
More so than anything else it will NOT make you able to enjoy the music of I.C.P or indeed of Phish, which SWIM believes is a firm barometer of stonedness.
The biggest difference, is that if SWIY tries to treat opium ANYTHING like weed, then it may well kill him. SWIY cannot spend a day 'getting high'. He may be able to stagger his dose, or take a little more towards the end, to stay high, but SWIM is firmly of belief that trying to spend a whole day, or even more than a few minutes eating/smoking/dosing will kill the crap out of SWIY.
SWIM feels it needs stating again - Opium is NOT hyperweed.
