This is the 3rd Edition of my Silk Road posts and the last in this series. Of course, if something else unusual happens as I continue to buy I will definitely update you.
Let’s talk mushrooms. Those which are hallucinogenic in nature, of course. My strategy up until the Silk Road was to stock up with any many as possible throughout the festival season to last me through winter until the next show came along with a good lot scene. But now that I’ve got the Silk Road, I don’t have to do that anymore. Actually, I’ve bought the spores and made a terrarium to start growing them too, but you always need a backup, right?
All the mushrooms from the Netherlands were about 15bc. (At this point in time, it was
about .80 cents a bc). And the ones from the Netherlands are always extremely good quality. But one guy was offering his Golden Teachers for almost half of that AND he shipped from the states, so fast and free shipping! Standard shipping use to be free from anywhere in the United States. Although some sellers do offer expedited shipping, that can be risky. Not a good idea to have to sign for your black tar heroin that was tracked to you from across the country. Despite the massive difference in price AND knowing the best product comes from the Netherlands, I bought a half ounce of them. But it wasn’t enough money to cry over if something did go wrong. And sure enough, they arrived the next day.
Here I am going to add a slight disclaimer. My view may be slightly askew due to both long-term and really heavy short-term overuse of psychedelics. Case studies have shown that certain RC’s produce cross-tolerance between other psychedelics. We did take an entirely different batch of mushrooms earlier that week and didn’t trip either. But the legitimacy of that product was never confirmed. Although they looked, smelled and tasted like legitimate shrooms, without at least another person verifying their potency, I couldn’t make a definite statement as to whether they were “real” or not.
They came vacuum sealed and everything looked legit. Once I received them I let the seller know. He requested that I release the funds, which I was hesitant to do since I hadn’t tried them yet, but my last few transactions were so smooth, I figured ‘why not?’. I gave the required 5 stars but wrote “WAITING TO SAMPLE PRODUCT. WILL POST REVIEW IN FORUM WHEN VERIFIED.”
We took them about 2 hours before an EOTO show in Tahoe, which was right across the street from our hotel. We had high expectations after such disappointing experiences with tripping on anything for the last 2 months. By the time we had to leave for the show all hope was abandoned. They never kicked in. We had all the effects of being on mushrooms without any of the visuals, euphoria or giddiness. They had ALL of the slightly uncomfortable feelings associated with mushrooms, slight tummy upset, desire to curl up in bed, bizarre equilibrium effect, social awkwardness, which usually passes in 30 minutes, transforming into social glee. The negative side effects lasted for the next few hours, but the desired effects were a no-show. I know that Golden Teachers can vary in potency and strength – and obviously, we both have an extremely high tolerance for pretty much all drugs in general. Maybe we could have dosed higher, but we ate a lot, to begin with. We don’t shy away from those challenges.
The seller continued to sell and his ratings still came in high. So either the rating system is clearly not a foolproof system or I really do need to cool off my psychedelic drug intake.
But overall, I’m still winning the Silk Road game – but it’s by no means a sweep. Again, I made a mistake in judgment basing my decision on price and not taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture – why were they so cheap?? Why would I buy from The States when I know they are sub-par to the Netherlands? Lesson Learned.
Next Purchase: MDMA – one of the best deals on the Silk Road!
My next handful of transactions were smooth with good outcomes across the board. Communication can be hit or miss with the sellers, but the product was always effective. And that’s all I ask for, really 😉
All of my MDMA experiences have actually worked out really well for me – even if it was weird. I found a great guy selling MDMA which tested about as high as possible on the Reagent test, 84%. It arrived relatively quickly from overseas, packaged as directed, good communication, A+ all around. We took it and had a BLAST on the high-quality product. I had been planning on ordering more from the same vendor. Then one day, imagine my surprise when I checked the mail and there was yet another shipment of the same product, same quantity, from the same town in the Netherlands, but from a different address. Okay, well that’s weird. This is my third shipment of mysterious drugs, none of which I had paid for, only one of which was bunk. I didn’t ask him about it because I didn’t want to raise any red flags. We decided to take it anyway (contents unconfirmed) and it was excellent. We rolled tits. I chalked it up to an error on his end, double shipping. But this is now the third time I’ve received strange deliveries like this in the mail. But I’m not going to say no if the universe keeps sending me free drugs.
It was so good though, that we wanted another order more ASAP for my birthday. Fast forward two or three weeks later. I placed another order. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I always order 3-6 items at a time. I had ordered a bag of 2C-E. I didn’t know the EXACT address it was supposed to come from but I remember it was at least some place on that side of the world (Netherlands). In the appropriate time frame, a bag from the Netherlands (again) came with a baggie of unmarked clear white powder, 1 gr.
Now, it makes sense that no one labels their drugs in the mail when they ship. And typically, people don’t use their own return home address. But it certainly makes it frustrating when you place multiple orders and are dealing with a product that is similar in color and bitterness, like many RC’s being sold today. It gets confusing. Then add the fact that 15mgs of one can flip your world upside down and bring you closer to a dangerous overdose, and 20mgs will have you pushing daisies, you need to be careful! I decided to hold on to the bag for a little bit and see if maybe the other product would be easier to recognize. Strangely, I wound up with 4 random bags of white powder. Supposedly from two different sellers, but who knows maybe really coincidentally they worked together in conjunction on the Silk Road.
Now I had my entire order of products. The MDMA was the same fantastic roll. The 2C-E was awesome and combined with LSD, they make the Universe’s hettiest cocktail 🙂 But I’m still left with the unanswered question of “Where are all of these free drugs coming from?? And more importantly, WHO IS SENDING THEM TO ME!!! Can all of this possibly be a dissociated string of coincidences? Doesn’t seem likely. I did take the “risk” blindly sampling one of the random bags which turned out to be 2C-I and I tripped face off of it, quite a few times. I still have some actually. I’m saving it for NYE.
There is nothing I can say about that specific mailing that would point to a conclusion. I really doubt I’ll get an answer to any of this, but at least I came out the winner – I guess? Overall, I ended up with way more drugs than I had actually purchased. Again, if the Universe wants to send me free drugs through mail order – who am I to complain? I’ve now received 1 free gram of 2C-E, 1 bag of MDMA and Ayahuasca, plus the 100 doses of bunk LSD, followed up the real product. And there have been a couple of times where the seller has then disappeared right afterward, despite a large number of positive reviews.
Although I suppose it definitely beats getting ripped off on the streets, it still makes you a little apprehensive when random bags of drugs start appearing in your mail.
One of the most common questions I receive about the Silk Road is “How does the pricing compare?” Well, that completely depends on what you’re are buying and where you live.
Here is a general breakdown by most popular categories:
Psychedelics (LSD, shrooms, RCs etc.): Normally much cheaper than I can find in and around California.
** Besides my less than successful purchase of shrooms from the states, most shrooms almost always come from the Netherlands. This is a great (although not foolproof) way of securing a high-quality product. I’ve honestly found this to be true for most products purchased from there – The Netherlands take the quality of their drugs seriously!**
Dissociative (Ketamine, MXE, PCP): Comparatively equal. I found no value in purchasing them through the Silk Road unless they just aren’t available in your area for some reason.
Meth: You can get higher quality there for sure. If you live someplace in the west where meth is prevalent, you won’t save money. But if you live on the east coast, you probably will.
Coke: Much pricier on SR but might be worth it for quality. They have a variety of
EXTREMELY Superior coke available. But you’re gonna have to pay! (worth it IMHO)
GHB: Cheaper if you can buy in quantity.
MDMA: Seems to be the best overall Street/SR ratio. Really dirt cheap compared to the street value in Los Angeles. You’ll also be buying a highly superior to what you can get on the streets. Since it’s almost all from the Netherlands (if it’s not, don’t buy it) you can still find early 90’s standard ecstasy. They don’t pass this “Molly” shit off as real AND it almost always comes with a Reagent Test results.
Heroin: This is an interesting one. When I started shopping on the Silk Road it was one of the best deals around. It was much cheaper than Los Angeles street prices. You could buy China White or other superior quality heroin when they had it, at a premium. But it WAS a rare commodity. Now #4 Heroin is flooding the Silk Road. It depends on what you can get in your town as to whether it’s “worth it” or not. Maybe you are from the West Coast and can’t get white powder in a stamp bag, you might be willing to buy at a higher price. Or you’ve never tried Mexican Black Tar, give it a go and try some.
Scripts: ALL OPIATE PRESCRIPTIONS ON SR ARE NOT WORTH IT. They may be high quality but you will be prison rape on the price. Hands down one of the biggest rip-offs – if you can secure elsewhere. But they are counting on getting the people who are uncomfortable buying from the streets or purchasing heroin at all.
Opium: Completely hit or miss if they have it. They will go through dry spells of months at a time and then have 3 or 4 dealers at once selling. In my opinion, because of its scarcity, if it’s available, buy it! I’ve never had fake opium or anything that was sub-par quality from the SR, and when I do buy, I’ll buy in bulk, just because I don’t know when it’s going to go away and I love having it around. I had a guy I was buying from at a fairly expensive, though not outrageous, price but he told me he had to close shop because the processing of the opium was getting way to expensive.
Other: This “Other” category is very vague. It means basically, anything else. HGH’s are one of the more popular items. Psych drugs of all sorts, sleeping pills, barbiturates, ludes, crazy types of benzo’s etc.
I bought some Phenobarbital, randomly one day because I saw it and seemed to be a reasonably good price (actually dirt cheap) and isn’t offered frequently in my circles – so that was worth it. I’ve been searching high and low to find Methaqualone, but have only found substitutes like Etaqualone, but it’s a crapshoot. You never know what random obscure drug that you’ve always wanted to try (or never heard of that piques your interest) so it’s hit or miss. If you can’t find the drug you’re looking for right away, just keep your eye open it will eventually pop up most likely. Then it might be there for a day or two – or it might spark a new trend and gain its own category. You never know what’s going to happen!
So in conclusion to the pricing questions, I purchase by the following criteria that are important to me: price, local availability, quality vs price, dealer rating and perhaps novelty (like the Phenobarbital).
Hopefully, that helps answer some of the questions you’ve had about the Silk Road, how it works, what’s available and how to buy, etc. Let me know if you have any other questions!
