new to all this in General Board Posted June 13, 2011 · Report reply Bob, your body size doesn't really affect how much RC you should take (since it works in your brain).Â And the fact is that no one really can predict how much LSA (active ingredient) you'll get from any given number of seeds, because the LSA content of seeds can vary quite a lot.Â What is known (obvious though it is, it's worth mentioning) is that people whose CH doesn't respond to seeds usually have taken too little. On the other hand, too much of it might cause psychedelic effects, which most people do not desire--they're looking for treatment for CH, not a large or sustained "high." So, you have to go by feel.Â Many people start with a small dose, maybe 10-15 seeds (fully ground up (most typically with a mortar and pestle) and soaked in water for an hour or two). Some people get CH relief from doses this small.Â Others work their way up to 50, 60, or more seeds. (My daughter, who weighs about 110, uses 60.)Â Even at those larger levels, you're not likely to experience more than the equivalent of a two-beer buzz. So I would say -- others please add your opinions! -- that you might start with 20 seeds, as long as you are comfortable with the (very remote) possibility that you might experience some psychedelic effects, and therefore you are attentive to the usual issues of set and setting. Many people experience "post-dose hits" in the days after their first dose or doses of seeds.Â Those can be more severe than the person's typical headache, and/or they can come at odd times, such as during the day when typically they get them at night.Â They indicate that the LSA is working--but they still hurt and can be disconcerting.Â So be sure your aborting ducks are as lined up as possible. I hope this helps--and I hope others will correct any errors in what I've said and add their own insights.
