Morning Glory and Hawaiian Baby Woodrose are both taken for their psychedelic properties. People have described the high as comparable to LSD, although more mellow. There are also a few noteworthy differences between an LSD trip and a Morning Glory or Baby Woodrose trip. The similarities are due to the fact that the psychedelic ingredient in both plants is d-lysergic acid amide (LSA). LSA is a naturally occurring compound and also the precursor to LSD.
LSA is found in large amounts in both Morning Glory and Woodrose. The technical chemical name for LSA is LA-111, and it is an ergoline alkaloid. LSA is similar in chemical structure to LSD since it is the precursor. Though similar, LSA produces some effects that are all its own, and it tends to produce a less intense high than LSD. The two chemicals are similar enough that LSA can be used as a substitute for LSD. The fact that Morning Glory and Hawaiian Baby Woodrose are often legal, even in places LSD is not, also makes it a good substitute. Both plants tend to be much easier to obtain than LSD.
Since the psychoactive ingredient in both Morning Glory and Hawaiian Baby Woodrose is LSA, either can be taken, and the high they produce will be very similar. LSD, on the other hand, produces a slightly different high than LSA. LSD has more energizing effects and creates a feeling of clarity. LSA makes the user feel drowsier, creating the effect of being in a dream-like state. LSA is described as being more mellow, less clear, and producing fewer visual disturbances than LSD.
On the other hand, LSA is not the only thing being ingested while taking Morning Glory or Baby Woodrose. The seeds that are consumed contain other alkaloids as well that are not good for the body. They frequently induce nausea and vomiting, which is not something that tends to happen with LSD.
Though the resulting high is nearly the same, Hawaiian Baby Woodrose and Morning Glory have to be dosed differently. Woodrose should be taken in much smaller amounts than Morning Glory. A light dose of Hawaiian Baby Woodrose is three to four seeds, and an average dose is between five and eight seeds, and anything more than that up to twelve seeds is a strong dose.
Taking more than twelve seeds is not recommended. The seeds should be chewed after not eating for four to six hours to minimize nausea. With Morning Glory, 50 to 100 seeds can be taken for a light dose. A medium dose is 100 to 250 seeds, and a strong dose is 250 to 400 seeds. Morning glory seeds can be taken a variety of ways, and it is not yet clear if one is better than another. The seeds can be eaten straight from the bag or turned into a drink by grinding them, soaking them in water for thirty minutes, and then filtering them into a cup.
The time it takes the seeds to take effect also varies between Hawaiian Baby Woodrose and Morning Glory. Woodrose usually starts affecting after two hours, making it easy to prepare for a trip. After Morning Glory seeds are taken, the trip will start in one to one and a half hours. Overall, they both take a little while to kick in. Once the trip has started, the effects of Hawaiian Baby Woodrose lasts for about six to eight hours.
However, the feeling of relaxation can last for twelve hours after the psychedelic effects have subsided. Sleeping after taking Baby Woodrose is usually extra deep, and is refreshing to wake up from. A trip on Morning Glory, on the other hand, can last up to ten hours depending on how many seeds are consumed. Anyone planning to take Morning Glory should probably keep the entire day free of activities.
Eating Hawaiian Baby Woodrose or Morning Glory seeds frequently causes vomiting, although this is less likely with Morning Glory. Users might also experience a hangover after the trip, the symptoms of which may include dizziness, blurry vision, and vertigo. It is important not to take more than the recommended dose because of these side effects, and only take a small dose the first time.
Combining Baby Woodrose or Morning Glory with any other drug, including alcohol, may worsen the side effects. Also, those who suffer from heart attacks or mental disorders like depression and anxiety should be very cautious about deciding to try Baby Woodrose or Morning Glory, and only take it if they have been feeling healthy and are in a good state of mind. Both drugs produce intense highs that last for a while, so inexperienced psychedelic users especially should have a trip sitter, or someone experienced with psychedelics to sit with the user and make sure they are alright.
