About Morning Glory Seeds
These psychedelic seeds of a large climbing vine Ipomoea Violacea, original come from America and the Far East or West Indies, but can be found in European Gardens as well. The main active ingredient of Morning Glory seeds is d-lysergic acid (LSA or LA-111), which is very similar to LSD, but 50 to 100 times less active. Compared to LSD, the effects of this psychedelics seeds, Ipomoea Violacea are a lot more tranquil, and after the major effects have worn off one usually feels very soft and relaxed.
Usage of Morning Glory Seeds High
There are 3 ways you can use this psychedelics seeds:
- Chew for as long as possible and swallow.
- Grind and soak in water for 1/2 hour, strain and drink.
- Sprout by soaking in water for 3-4 days (change water often), after which the white mushy part is removed from the shell and eaten. This is probably the best method for avoiding side effects, although it makes the effects a little bit less intensive.
- Light effect: (50-100 seeds) 1,5-3 grams
- Medium effect: (100-250 seeds) 3-6 grams
- Strong effect (250-400 seeds) 6-10 grams
- Heavy effect (400+ seeds ) 10+ grams
1 portion contains
20 grams of seeds
Because use is oral, onset is affected by the last food that was ingested. On a relatively empty stomach (try not to eat 4-6 hours before you eat the seeds), onset of effects is about an hour after ingestion, although it can be many hours before peak effects are reached. Primary effects last: 6-10 hours when seeds are taken orally.
Unlike it’s more refined cousin, LSA can trigger a high degree of discomfort in the user. That discomfort can come in the form of cramping, extreme nausea, other stomach pains, and even vomiting. It’s an unpleasant slew of experiences to be confronted with when all you’re looking for is a good trip.
People who have tried LSA for themselves expand on their experiences on BlueLight, a drug forum. One poster wrote “You’ll find LSA just really puts you in that drealike state with a slightly introspective mindset. LSD completely blows that open in my opinion, LSA is comparable to a real low dose of acid with nausea.”
Another reported that they took LSA with alcohol and had to be sent to the hospital. In May of 2016, a Boston teen was hospitalized after consuming morning glory seeds.
Still, other users have reported more pleasant — or at least not unpleasant — experiences, often commenting on how the dosage and any other drugs taken at the same time can alter the effects. “LSA is amazing. Very visual, very beautiful, very dreamy,” writes one user. “With LSAs I feel like having a strong body high and it can be pretty weird,” said another.
Morning Glory Seeds Get You High Because They Contain LSA
The average gardener may not know that they’re actually burying seeds that contain a potent alternative to LSD. It’s known as “D-lysergic acid amide” (that’s LSA to you) and it’s what’s known as a precursor chemical to LSD. LSA induces psychedelic effects not too dissimilar from that trippy drug you already know and love.
The LSA chemical was discovered by Albert Hoffman, who also discovered LSD, when he — you guessed it — chewed the seeds. It’s classed as a Schedule III substance by the DEA, with a “moderate to low potential for physical and psychological dependence.” Other drugs in the same classification family are codeine and ketamine, although the Morning Glory flower is much easier and much less sketchy to obtain.
But before you go following in his footsteps and popping Morning Glory like it’s sunflower seeds, there are some crucial differences between LSA and LSD that are important to know going into it.
