Nico, you'll need to grow those seeds for years before you can use the cacti for a trip.  Preparing the cacti can be as simple as eating it, making an awful tasting tea, or you can do an extraction on it, which is a bit more involved.  Until you have a few feet of cacti, which will likely take a good 2-3 years, minimum, before you have a specimen large enough to even try.  Mescaline is a less invasive trip than most tryptamines, and it gives a great body buzz, as well as trails and visuals.  Hard to really describe, if you aren't familiar with other psychedelic experiences.

To start those seeds, you'll need to get some well draining potting soil, or you can do a google search to find a good cactus soil recipe.  Then you just dampen the soil, and lightly spread a few seeds over the top of the dirt.  You don't need to push them into the soil deep at all, but just kind of sprinkle the seeds on the moist soil.  They should start to sprout in a week or so, and then you can carefully transplant each seedling or couple to it's/their own tiny container, and you can give them some fluorescent light to germinate and begin growing, but they will need to be acclimatized to outdoors when it is warm enough to put them out, or you'll need some expensive grow lights after the seedling stage. 

The seedlings will do well starting under a fluorescent light, and then next summer or when they are big enough to survive outdoors, then you can put them in a slightly shady spot that doesn't get direct sun, and then start letting it get a little sun at a time, each day, increasing the time in the sun, as it grows.  If it shows any redness, it is too much too fast.  Too little light will make the growing tip etiolate, or grow skinny.  You don't want this to happen, because if it starts getting more sun, the tip will get fatter again, and the skinny spot will be a weak point in the cacti, that could break from the weight of the growing tip, once it gets a nice size.

Anyways, I hope this gives ya somewhere to start, and feel free to ask any questions you have, and I'll do my best to give you more specific advice.  Good luck!

If you wait a week, you'll be fine.  And as Roy mentioned, at that dose mixing them wouldn't kill you..

An extra gram of bark won't be any big deal, but an extra gram of TA is gonna do much more, and a gram of HCl is going to be even stronger, so  gram more will be a very significant difference.  But no, IME, there isn't a very thin threshold between a mild buzz, and an ass kicking, and it takes a significant bit more in the dose, to make a significant difference.the only flood that really kicked my ass was 5 grams of TA, and I weighed under 150 lbs at that time.  Every dose since, even when I extracted 44 grams of bark and took it all, the dose wasn't anywhere near that first experience.

Iboga comes on with a slight buzzing beginning in your ears, and it gets lourder and louder, almost like your whole body is vibrating.  You start to get really dizzy and fall back into almost a trance, where you begin having visions, of what, who knows?  It varies so widely from perfect autobiographical recall to random images of fighting and war, or sometimes jungle, or ancient peoples.  Hellish scenes or heavenly scenes, which may or may not relate to your inner turmoil. 

The frantic mind doesn't usually occur for me, it's much more gentle on the mind.  Your mind remains relatively sharp, and clear thinking.  There are cases where people believe the visions are real, but usually that is uncommon, without very large doses.  Then you start to come down from the visions after anywhere from 4-12 hours.  Then you may feel some reflection, or guilt for all the mistakes you made.  You may feel down, or shamed, and it's good to reflect on your life and your choices, and start setting a plan in action for what you want to make your new life. 

After this reflection period, you slowly come down over the next couple days.  Until you fall asleep, you may feel a bit frazzled from the experience, worn out and mind blown.  You will likely have a bit of insomnia, but after you do fall asleep, you'll most likely wake up within 4 hours or so, and upon awakening, you'll see the light flickers and still have the lingering effects  That is pretty much what happens physically but mentally, the trip will be your own.

Iboga does the same thing, just speaks in a different language.  Iboga doesn't usually give he same panic that a high dose of LSD or shrooms can give, because it gives more of a detached view.  As if you are watching a movie in your head,  So your mind is less likely to race and go crazy, instead things are still made more significant, but it is much easier to have clear thoughts on a heavy dose of iboga. 

With a heavy dose of LSD or shrooms, I almost go schizophrenic, wear all aspects of my personality are amplified, and begin arguing with each other, until I reach a climax, where I feel as if I am going to die or lose my mind forever, then a major shift happens as I break through, and the panic is replaced by euphoria, the confusion is replaced with perfect clarity.  My separation from everything in the universe becomes transparent and I see that I am one with all things in the universe, and I feel much more significant.  I could go on about specific vision and stuff, but that gets very subjective and personal. 

Iboga is heavier physically than any of the ones you mentioned, but easier on the mind, where as LSD and shrooms are easy on the body, but much more invasive to the mind.  That is not to say that no one ever freaks out on iboga, or that your mind does not have a different experience, especially in high seriously disorienting experience, but it's a lot less likely to feel the panic with iboga, as I have with other traditional tryptamines.

There is an excellent search feature on the nexus, you just need to register and log in.. It is here after you log in:  You must post in the beginner part of the forum until you follow the instructions and get promoted, then they will allow you to post elsewhere in the forum.  Sort of a probationary period..  You can use the search function as soon as you log in, though.

Collective improvisation is exactly what I am into!  That is what the Grateful Dead are all about.  Want to have a spiritual experience?  Try a GD show on a head full of LSD!  I have witnessed some amazing insights and feel as if I tapped into the akashic record before.  Being a psychonaut can be very rewarding!

Don't worry Buck, I kicked a 7 year habit, half on methadone, with a single large dose of iboga TA.  I didn't feel great for a week or two, but it wasn't totally unbearable,  And I got better super fast, compared to what I would have went through cold turkey.  So you're doing well, with a whole week on an SAO.  I would say by a onth after the treatment, you should be feeling good, and two months you'll be all better, if you tough out the PAWS.  It's really not as bad as the fear of withdrawal.  The fear of going into withdrawal is often much worse than the actual physical withdrawal, and with iboga, the physical is pretty wiped out.  Just a little annoyances linger, but it's manageable.  So good luck!  I am sure you'll make it!  :)

Take 100-200+ mgs of harmala alkaloids (legal), and maybe start with 20 mgs of DMT, and work your way up with either material until you find your comfortable dose.  It takes me at least 200 mgs of harmala (harmine, harmaline, tetrahydroharmine) to feel it, but you may be able to get by with less.  The DMT will provide most of the visuals and trip part, but the caapi/ayahuasca vine/harmala alkaloids will give a very nice body buzz, and slight visuals in higher doses, so I wouldn't be too shy with them. 

The DMT is likely what will freak you out, so I'd start really low with that.  The harmalas will make the DMT orally active, so taking a sufficient dose of harmalas is necessary to keep the DMT from being broken down in the stomach, otherwise you won't feel it, no matter how much you take.  Anyways, the dmt-nexus has a lot of experienced ayahuasca/pharmahuasca users who could answer more of your questions.  Good luck!

Poppy pods, latin name, Papaver somniferum.  The Opium Poppy.  The pods are seed pods that are scraped to collect opium, but they are sold for floral arrangements.  They contain morphine, codeine, mostly, and thebaine, noscapine, papaverine.  The first two are in sufficient quantities, that you can probably stay well with a few jumbo pods a day. 

They cost between 100-200 bucks a lb, and can be shipped to your door in the continental US, in about 2-3 days. You just crack em open, dump out the seeds to save and plant, and throw the pods in a blender or coffee grinder and powder them.  then use the powder to brew like a tea.  3-4 steeps for 10-15 minutes should get all the goodies.  Just flavor it with sugar or honey, I liked to use a little bit of coffee, and I'd chug it down. 

The buzz takes about 1-2 hours to fully kick in, but then it lasts for a good 12-24 hours, before you start to feel withdrawal again.  Start with around 15-20 grams of pod powder, if you have a decent habit, then wait 1-2 hours and see if that doesn't keep you well.  If not, use a little more, until you find the perfect functional dose, where you feel fine, but not high.  Then you use that dose daily, reducing by a few grams every few days, if you can, and staying at one dose until you are totally comfortable there.  You can easily taper down really low before you flood, making the iboga's job even easier.

If you need ideas for ingestion or where to order, feel free to PM me and I can direct you to a few reliable vendors, and give you some decent methods of brewing or ingesting the pods.  Seems to be the cheapest way to go, and it doesn't give the rush of pills or heroin, so you feel comfy, but don't get that euphoric rush, making it easier to just maintain..

The thing is, a small dose of iboga will stave off withdrawal for awhile, but if you don't take enough to fully flood your receptors, then you start feeling withdrawal as more of the opiates leave your system.  You can take small doses over an extended period to rid you of most withdrawal, but doing it this way makes it take a lot longer than just flooding hard the first time..  It can be useful for kicking a tiny habit, but if it's been a long time, you should just flood to get rid of all the withdrawal, or else it's easy to keep relapsing..

Always so eloquent, Cal!  :)  I second that emotion!  ;)

Sounds like what I'd experience on about 5-10 grams of decent bark.  Perhaps you're just a little sensitive..  That means a less expensive flood!  Good news! ;)

I have never read of an overdose on iboga, so I wouldn't worry about taking too much.  What our bodies can't process, it'll throw up..
