    when making pst some say to rinse the seeds more than once. wouldn't the first rinse be strong than say the 2nd or 3rd? i don't really understand, like no one has ever explained it they just say to do it.

    The first rinse is generally stronger than the second. Doing a second wash allows you to physically remove more of the alkaloids from the seeds. For consistency, you should mix the two washes together and measure them out into separate doses.

      Short, to the point and accurate. Excellent response.

    Why wait for someone to explain it to you? Go get a bag of seeds, make there separate rinses, and try them.

    You can literally feel the answer for your self.

      Because someone has already answered eloquently in the amount of time it took you to be snarky.

    I think much of it is personal preference in this regard. In terms of safety, consistency is definitely an absolute rule that must not be violated. In terms of getting the best buzz for a persons buck, well, one could be forgiven for wanting every second dose to be a really good one. I would suggest in this regard it would perhaps be best to drink the second wash the first day and the first wash the second day if this is the case because at least then you have an idea of the potency of the seeds. Personally I have always combined the doses, but I have also never allowed my tolerance to develop to such an extent where I never had to choose. I was able to avoid the trap of it not becoming a daily endeavour with a little help from a friend.

    As has been previously intimated, washing the seeds once rarely removes all of the alkaloids from the seeds. Therefore you'll get a better total effect by washing the seeds more than once. My personal advice would be to wash an amount of seeds that is equivalent to your current needs, rather than washing enough for two days worth, because it removes the temptation to take both doses in one day, or a stronger desire to potentiate or increase the dose on one day as opposed to another because of variance in potency between doses. This is of course up to you, but it is advisable to develop sustainable safe habits early on. Addiction is not something that happens to some people, but rather something that happens to all people with varying lengths of exposure to the substance. Good habits will help you survive the addiction until such a time as you are ready to kick it, if it comes to that for you.

    Anyone freeze and save a few smaller second washes to use as a starter wash?
