Kronic 3 - Chronic Use?OK, so I am not doing double-blind, controlled trials or anything –in fact, I am my own guinea-pig- but I am still intent on reporting about this drug in a semi-scientific way and, after a week of daily “therapeutic” use of Kronic to ameliorate my pain, it is time to make some observations.
The first is that I have apparently developed a degree of tolerance to the substance. In the beginning, just a few crumbs of Kronic were enough –in concert with my presc
At the lower dose, I found Kronic to act as a slight appetite suppressant; my tummy felt quite content to remain empty. But larger doses seem to have brought out the familiar munchies effect. I note that my feelings of hunger are often accompanied by intense visual images of what exactly I wish to eat, and of detailed stages of its preparation. These images continue to invade my mind with increasing frequency until I am no longer able to concentrate on the task at hand, and am compelled to construct and consume the meal about which I have been obsessing. Unlike cannabis-inspired munchies, however, I don’t crave sugary, salty or fatty foods when using Kronic.
My Sudoku average has taken a major hit in this last week, which I take as evidence that my ability to concentrate whilst under the influence of Kronic is significantly impaired. It seemed that my bodily sensations dominated my consciousness to the extent that abstract thought seemed dull and pointless. Why was I sitting there doing a Sudoku, when I could be doing something else, like dancing?
Along with the higher dose now required to treat my pain has come an intensification of all of Kronic’s effects on my system as I have previously reported them. I still feel a strong sense of stimulated relaxation, and a complete lack of anxiety. And my body continues to reward me with waves of tingly flushes, elevated to a sometimes alarming degree. And instead of being “post-orgasmic” sensations, as I described them in my first Kronic story, the higher-dose physical flushes are more productive of desire than of satisfaction. In short, at my current dose, the drug is decidedly an aphrodisiac.
So, where to next for this series of self-experiments? I will continue to monitor my “therapeutic” use, to establish whether the required effective dose continues to increase, thus deepening my tolerance to the drug, and raising the issue of a possible dependency. Though I have no intention of testing the upper limits of dosage in an effort to induce some of the ‘wilder’ reported effects of Kronic, such as ‘out-of-body’ experiences and hallucinations. I am 20 years too old for that particular experiment.
In fact, I think I will have a Kronic-Free-Day today. I have saved some of my presc
This amateur pharmacologist continues his series of experiments, and will report again soon.
