I pulled a small Mango bud from the water curing bucket yesterday, gently dried off the worst of the water from it with a paper towel and dried it in the dehydrator for about 8 hours. Okay, lesson 1, pluck all the leaves off the bud before trying to smoke it, it was harsher than what my brother had me try last month. Describing the buzz I felt is hard to describe: it was like hyper-ventilating though I was breathing deep and slow. My limbs and chest were tingling, not quite pins and needles but it was like a semi numbness. My head felt a slight vertigo ... I remember when the buzz first hit me thinking "here it is, put the bong down". Then I needed to go to the bathroom, I had to steady myself. I made it there without incident, but it felt like being quite drunk minus the nausea or hang over. I remember shutting off the lights and going to bed. Once the vertigo stopped, I fell asleep, quite soundly. I woke up with dry "cotton mouth" and no other side effects ... okay perhaps a bit of tightness in the chest, but that might be due to me also toking up while having a bad cold ... All in all, no palpitations, but I need to make sure I pluck out all leaves before using the bud, and stop after a few tokes ... wait a few minutes for the buzz to hit. The way I did it last night I kept going at it until I could feel the buzz!
