I was on Kush Herbal incense when it first started. Its been about six years since I’ve been healthy and thanked God every day. Yes, I had to be hospitalized, and I was in a poison control center for a week, on strong meds. In 2010 near the end of the year, I made one the most prominent mistakes ever.
I heard about a new drug taking storm; it was being sold on the internet. At the time I researched this, the reviews were going well because at the time there was no real information out there about this stuff.
What I heard what about the guy who made this chemical, to supposedly mimic the effects of weed. I thought well maybe this could be a healthy alternative to actual THC. Let me tell you; I keep close to the internet looking on reviews, watching people party with it on the internet, and seeing if any ill effects would occur or had happened.
At the time I kept hearing one person might have overdosed and got scared and went to the hospital. Well as a former THC smoker in my 20’s, I figured well that’s common since I’ve been around people at parties who reacted differently because of the extreme high of a particular strain of THC.
They had to be rushed to the hospital because there elevated blood pressure or whatnot, and their chemistry could not quite handle it. So time went on weeks later, I heard of a brand called “Kush” Blueberry, it was popular by demand, and it was selling at a good rate.
Some people had knock-offs where the potency was not good, and others might have gotten a pack where the potency was sprayed too much, and if you had THC it would be like 50x, and you be like wtf. So I went to the head shop and to my surprise it was already order there, I was like damn. So I asked the Indian guy is THC the stuff everyone talking about strawberry and blueberry kush. He said, “I think so.”
Do you know anything about it, and he said “Yes not for human consumption, for burning in popurri bottles” but then said hint. I was like hmmm ok, I bought two bags, at a crazy rate of 30 bucks a pop. I went home and tried THC for the first time.
With all the reviews of it being not illegal, that was the first time I drove with grass on me, in where if I got pulled over, the cops would of just probably compensated the bag or not. At the time it wasn’t illegal although reports where coming in, yet they could not arrest people, so I was not at all paranoid, so it helped, or would I drive crazy stupid with this stuff.
When I first started with this stuff, I was somewhat reluctant to even smoke it in a paper; I had a bowl that I bought from that head shop because it was recommended to start out slow. I mean listen I got it from Houston, and those people are updated with the progress of drugs in the world lol.
So when I open the bag I could smell of a lovely Melo blueberry, it felt like enriched tobacco flavor, so I thought my god, this must be like the new legal way to get high. Oh boy, I thought to myself it’s going to be amazing if THC works. Loaded a bowl up small, and took one hit of it.
At first, nothing happens, and I was like hmmm, THC you can usually feel a fast effect, but then I thought, well I didn’t have that hard cause I was scared of this substance at first, might have just inhaled like two secs and blown it.
So I tried it again then for about six seconds and then released the smoke from my lungs. Then waited, for about ten secs then all of a sudden something happens. My hands became tension, and sweaty, and then I started feeling awkward, and then bam, I was getting high just like the, I felt it good at first cause I have not smoked THC in like year and a half or so, and it hit pretty hard. I took one more hit, and just sit there, and bam it was just like THC, or even better. I was high as a kite, and loving it.
Walked around the house, and just sat there watching TV blazed like a joint. Then I thought damn did I smoke a joint or 3 bowl hits lol. It was insane that all I had to do was take three hits off a small bowl of this and I was high like a joint. See I use to smoke with the boys back in the day.
Maybe we smoke 3 to 4 blunts in the ride while listening to music. I mean so I felt like I could take a lot if this did kick in hard. So after about an hour, it wore off. But I knew in my mind that I could not overdo this, which was cool cause honestly, it was expensive, plus I’ve smoked weed in the past where a regular joint would barely get you good. Anywhere long story short I like it.
Time passed, and I was so into this drug, I’m sure I might have made lots of trips to Houston to that headshop to get Kush blueberry or strawberry. He had a good dealer the Indian did, and sometimes he gives me a deal on two packs. 2 for 50 instead of 60.
So I had a good dealer, but until once everyone was getting into buying it, he would not have some or be on order. I found out I could order it on the internet, and ran into a lot of other websites that sold stuff called K2, OR K3 that was a different strand.
So I tried one called Lousiana Gator on it, it was like a New Orleans spice, or something. I’m telling you it was potent, but it was an excellent potent like you could say it was good. I mean it was like smoking the THC back in the day that would get you good for hours, but it may cost a lot sometimes, it would take even sell out sometimes.
So I found many ways of getting it, even founds office selling this shit in Houston. I was getting crazy on this, found someone selling NYC diesel as it was a good brand, and it seems to be safe. I talk to the guy doing it, and he had it down as inconsistency, potency, and ways of making it safe.
He seems to have a good deal going; I even talked to him face to face about what I needed. I was buying 3 ounces of this stuff, and refrigerating it, all the time, and was enjoying the effects of it. Then when I didn’t have money coming in from loss of jobs, I started getting desperate and did one of the dumbest things I did ever.
Because of the addiction I had, well been doing this drug for 7-8 months, I was strapped for cash and bought something cheap from an unknown dealer from Montana. He had a website he was selling all sorts of stuff t-shirts, glasses, for sports, but it was all crap to hide the fact he was making money of some cheap ass insense he sold 6 grams for 10.
I bought this stuff, and when it came in the mail. Yes, I said the mail, it was not what you call, the things I’ve been used to. It was in an open bag, not sealed like most other bags were, so I hesitated to smoke this. But as stupid as I was, I tried it anyways.
There was something wrong, as it was making me trashed as I looked in the mirror and my eyes were bloodshot red, and I was gone. I had no idea what this crap was, and it wasn’t like the stuff before. I had some of the NYC deal one night and started feeling weird like smoked too much and got ill.
So I went out and started buying beer and doing so maybe the effect wouldn’t hurt me as bad. Then one night, I purchased vodka and started smoking that unknown stuff again, and I must have overdosed, I was entirely in discomfort, didn’t know what I was doing, nor, did I know where I was. I might have been out of it for days until I was sent to the hospital.
My poor parents had to deal with my ways from this drug. Called the ambulance and get me to ER Fast. I was then after getting out of detox, set to another detox center for disease overdose control for a week. There I was staged, didn’t know where I was, nor could figure out why.
I thought that I was on some island, and the people around me were crazy too like me. Hell, I was so gone, I didn’t even know what was going on anymore. I thought I was dead or something and nurses were taking care of us. It was insane, and I had no clue what the heck was going on.
All I know was I was safe, but there were chicks in there and beds. One night I talked to this young black guy who I bunked with. I’m assuming he was ill too; they were just trying to get us back to regular sleeping, eating and getting our systems back to normal. I had conversations with some of the guys I bunked with, and don’t even recall the conversation as probably both we were gone.
So after one week, things started getting better, and I started coming way down. I realized something terrible happens, and it set in hard. I was back to normal, and I was upset. My mom came and picked me up, and I was crying.
I remember just how gone I was from this drug, the effects it did to me, and I think that it built up after months of usage, and to point where I was going to react hard from everything I did. I was angry, but I was at the same time blessed because I think my family prayed hard for me. I could have easily lost my mind, and or died from this stuff.
It took maybe a year to get off the side effects of being on this stuff. I had muscle reactions, the time where I just wanted to lay straight, and I felt like I was in bad posture, and mentally sick. I was on four different types of meds to get back to normal. My mind, body, and spirit were ultimately not in sync with this drug.
I was destroyed for a year of rehabilitation on my own from this. Today I read about some after effects of this drug, and I might have had some of the weirdest ones. Like days my mind wanted me to fill the bathtub up and just sink in there and be free from this weirdness of bipolar. I was bipolar, and my equilibrium was in mass effected to the point I was unsteady and confused during the days.
Once getting better, I turned into an alcoholic for about five years and have been depressed with my life since until I got a DUI, and had to go into sobriety for some period now. Now six months in sobriety, I write this knowing how lucky I have not died from substance abuse, and maybe now have a chance to do things with my life.
I understand being sober is the best way of life. I don’t know why I did this, I mean partying is one thing, but I thought I had enough good times in my 20’s with friends and parties I could have got serious with my life and did something in my 30’s. Its been a hard road, and I’ve paid for it.
All I know is that synthetic weed is no good, and it should be outlawed. I hope that you never try this substance if you have any sense you stay away from it. It is not good, and it will destroy every bit of you in the long run. So please I beg you just to don’t ever do it.
I still today follow this drug and hope for change. I hope fewer deaths occur, and they banned it from being made. Since 2012, I’ve heard of so many hospitalizations because of some of these dealers who mess up on the chemicals or what not and its taken its toll on people.
The drug is not safe, but they tend not to care because its a money making industry and they don’t care who they kill. I mean if they make money off killing people they could care less.
You think you are getting a good high, no its a fake high, it’s not natural like this, and a sober person now, I instead you try THC if you were going to experiment. But in all, drugs and alcohol are not good, and they destroy every chance of you succeeding in life, I mean it’s not joking. I had to learn the hard way.
I hope people wise up about substance abuse these days, Know the effects and consequences of anything you do. Good luck out there and be safe!
