So I was drinking some potent Pouni Ono one afternoon, and then I introduced an Uptime Energy drink t+ 30 minutes and noticed the euphoric headiness of the kava react to the Gotu Kola extract, Angelica Root, Panax Ginseng Root, Ginkgo Biloba, Bee Pollen, and caffiene of the UpTime Drink. I then introduced another natural substance which is known commonly to also have heady / heavy strains, albiet being referred to as body / mind cultivars. This was T+ 2:00 hours 0 mins. I noticed this intense yet pleasent modulation of my senses and qualia. This was a krunk with other ethnobotanical herbals to aid and synergize. "Now, then." ____________ My experience with this entheogen tonic was nontheless pleasant with a resonat undertone of anxiety. Of course, to calm this state down I'd drank another shell of the grog to calm the nerves. And if I'd begin to fall asleep? I'd consume the other botanicals. This plant interaction remains anchored by fat-soluability and organ of effectant. (the liver, then the brain, respectively) This is all to say that I believe in the safety of this combination, being all natural even if aided by things of modern invention. I'd never wager wether or not this were possibly a mistake on my end, with my volatile emotions at hand! I know that this was indeed a safe and spiritually relevant experience. I am currently moving out of my parent's house, at age 20, for personal reasons, and having been raised sheltered, and also paradoxically harmed & nurtured by. O, the depression overtook me so. It was a cacophony of pain and suffering, given my wisdom teeth pain's 7 week toll on my mouth and jaw integrity. I relied on my significant other and boyfriend for help, and his mother, all great people. My parental disapproval of my "gay lifestyle" aside, I was in good shelter. I am happy to be able to provide this information to my valuable friends here on the kavaforums. Thanks a lot you wonderful bunch! _______________ Also, the kava was amazing. I have to work on a review of Pouni Ono on my upcoming Youtube show. Thanks!
