If you can’t think of anything to do with your friends this coming weekend, maybe it’s time to try something new. If you’re someone who’s curious enough, there are research powders out there.  No I’m not talking about transcendental meditation. I’m talking about stuff you can buy and research with your friends without getting into trouble. Anyway, here’s some helpful advice you might want to bear in mind when you’re researching them with your friends, especially if it’s your first time experimenting with it.

 

  1. Buying your goods

 I’m guessing that if you’re looking for legal highs, you probably don’t want to have to deal with all the unpleasant business with dealers, so you’re considering where to get it with some degree of scrutiny. Some clubs do sell certified research powders and getting it can be tricky as they don’t easily sell it to anyone. You can take advantage of the internet and search for legal highs online. You can also get more information about the product in some websites – that brings us to my next point.

 

  1. Know what you’re getting

If you want to be in charge of your experience, you ought to know a little something about what you’re experimenting with. Gather some information about it; while carelessly going around trying everything on offer could be a fun attitude to have, it probably won’t end well for you after a while.  That’s why buying them online is so nice; you can get more information at your fingertips. When you’re looking for information, look for medically accurate reports or those that come from an unbiased sight. As you can imagine, there are all kinds of opinions about research powders out there, and most of them are pretty strong. The web will give you an opportunity to read the descriptions and judge for yourself how much you can handle.

 

  1. Don’t forget, you need air and water

When you experiment with legal highs, make sure to always rehydrate. Drinking water is important so have a glass every now and then, there’s no need to drink extreme amounts though. Breathing is good; it’s good for the body, good for the experiment and good for the soul. Take a deep breath, long and slow, every now and then… you won’t be sorry, how could you be?

 

  1. Test the waters

Different research powders, as you can imagine, have vastly varying effects on different people. New experiences can be overwhelming and so if you’ve never tried it before, it’s a good idea to gradually experiment with it, and then decide whether you like it or not because doing too much can be unsettling if you’re not used to it. If you’re not used to these experiments, try a little at first, so you know what to expect, it lessens the chances of you having an unpleasant experience. And for all those go-getters out there, don’t overdo your research to impress anyone otherwise you will see the devil, whatever your devils are. The only time you should experiment with more is if you know what you’re doing and you really want to let go.

 

  1. Be comfortable

I’m not saying lie around in your pyjamas – unless you’re on salvia, then yes- but comfort and mind set have a lot to do with your experiment. If you’re too nervous, pressured, silently worrying about something you think is serious or is in a strange place with strange people, it becomes easy to let the fun run away from you. Being comfortable lets it flow and gives you a safe place to explore new emotions and states. That doesn’t mean you should always stay at home when you experiment with it; go party with your friends if you want, but leave the powders at home so you can enjoy the feeling without having any worries.
