Morning Glory seeds contain LSA, a shamanic entheogen which generates a meditative, introspective and visionary state of mind, but it is also a beautiful plant to grow.
On an empty stomach (try not to eat 4-6 hours before you eat the seeds) onset of effects is about an hour after ingestion. The experience itself lasts 6 to 10 hours. Nausea is quite common, especially during the first stages of the experience.
There are two ways to reduce nausea. One may grind and soak the seeds in water for half an hour and then drink the liquid, discarding the seeds. Another way is to let the seeds sprout by keeping them moist for 3 or 4 days (change the water often), after which the white part is removed from the shell and eaten.
One may also try to eat the seeds without letting them germinate first, but this isn’t a very pleasant way to ingest the active components.
Light effects are obtained by ingesting 50 to a 100 seeds (or 1.5 to 3 grams), while eating 250 to 400 seeds (6 to 10 grams) gives a very strong trip.
Place the seeds in water and let them soak for a day. Then put the seeds in soil, preferably in a sunny spot. Morning Glory plants tend to stretch out in all directions, so it is important that this is a spot where the plants can cause no harm to other plants and can climb freely, for example near a fence. Water the plants regularly, especially in the summer.
The Morning Glories have large heart-shaped leaves and will grow amazingly beautiful trumpet-shaped flowers. Flowers can adopt several colors, from white to red and from purple to blue. They are fast growers and within a mere six weeks the first flowers will appear. When the flowers whither and fall off, round seed capsules are formed. Don’t harvest these pods too early, or the seeds will be white rather than dark brown or black.
