    Anyone who drinks smoothies should read this.

    When I was young and dumb I had an awful experience eating seeds when I was drunk (Hawaiian Baby Woodrose).

    I don't remember how many I ate I just remember experiencing pain of the magnitude of eating a barrel of broken glass. Vomiting, shaking, sweating, dry heaving, hallucinating... going into a full blown LSA trip.... wanting to call 911 but being too fucked up to do so. And finally feeling sick as hell the following day. One of the worst experiences of my life.

    Now check this. I drink a lot of smoothies these days. And for some reason I noticed when I drink a big glass, my stomach feels like theres needles inside. It hurts like hell. It lasts like 4-6 hours. I'll bend over on a chair holding my stomach then try to ignore it. I'll twitch my abs and clench my gut. It just lingers and lingers.

    I always assumed it was the carrots causing this pain. As I just assumed raw carrots are hard to digest, you drink too many, it causes pain.

    Then thanksgiving happened. I ate well cooked turkey with my family. Was fine the whole day. No problems.

    I get home, wanna make a smoothy and am out of carrots. The store was closed. I think "no big deal". I got lots of apples, broccoli, celery and bananas.

    Now I'm a lazy bastard. So I make my smoothies with a french fry chopper. It's fast. I just break off stems, celery leafs, instachop then blend. I don't core the apples cause the end result never tastes different.

    Anyway, since there was no carrots I figured "I'll down a lot". I probably drank a bit less than a liter. Within 30 minutes I felt that horrendous feeling coming on. I was confused as hell. After an hour it was so intense I went to lay in my bed. I just laid in agony all night and couldn't sleep at all.

    I wind up on Google with a blank screen just thinking. Then remember my experience long ago eating those seeds. I remember it had something to do with cyanide. So I type in "cyanide" and casually start reading.

    A few minutes later I discovered the most interest fact of my life.

    If you eat apple seeds, your stomach won't digest them. So they just pass through your system. But if you CHEW or somehow BREAK those seeds, they contain a compound called Amygdalin.... which converts to cyanide in your stomach. It's the same shit in Woodrose seeds. Even MORE INTERESTING, if you cut the core out of 20 apples, then blend them, and drink that mixture, you can KILL YOURSELF from cyanide poisoning!

    More info about cyanide seeds here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyanide#In_nature

    Apricot and peach seeds can also kill you. Although you'd have to be an idiot to try chewing / blending those. :eek:

    From what I've heard, with the apricot seeds/kernels specifically, people are told to avoid them because they are said to fight off certain diseases. I know someone who has used apricot seeds in smoothies and such, and they never had any negative reactions. I've also done the lazy thing where I'll just toss in some apricots and blend them whole, and I was always feeling very refreshed afterward. The main thing people who consume them need to make sure of is that they're from a trusted, organic source so they are beneficial to the body instead of harmful. Sometimes in our corrupt world, especially here in the good ol' US of A, we are made to believe something is harmful only because of its true hidden benefits... or because a variant of it that was artificially created/modified has become harmful. Like how they figured out how to make some crops produce their own insecticides, which helps reduce crop losses but... yeah, what's it do to us now when we eat it? :/ They claim it's harmless in moderate doses... "moderate" doses?... In a country where we're encouraged to stuff ourselves until we can't move and where obesity is off the charts? Hmmm...

    I admittedly have no idea or experience regarding the apple or peach seeds, though. They could very well be poisonous, which made it convenient and believable for apricots to be added to the list too.

    Glad to hear nothing too serious happened to you as a result of the apple seeds.

    PS: Do you ever try adding hemp seeds, coconut flour, or raw honey? Some of my favorite additions to smoothies, and something about that coconut flour is just so delicious. :)

    Grape seeds also have cyanide in them.

    Fish have mercury in them.

    So what, who cares.

    If you are sat there eating golf ball sized peach seeds then I have the ask if the world needs you anyway.

    If a particular food is giving you pain like smoothies, stop drinking them?!?!

    Apparently if you swallow apple seeds trees grow inside you.

    Think it would be a little hard to swallow a peach seed.

    Fairly certain that counts as mod abuse. If you guys could avoid visualising stuff like this, that'd be great, mkay?

    Is that such an unknown?

    I knew even as a kid that those seeds are rather dangerous. Well, at least you survived it. :)

    Regarding the Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, I'd rather suggest to drop some clean LSD blotters instead if you want to have a nice experience. No pain, just the greatest experience possible (if the setting is right). :p

    warm regards,
    neocortx

    Too much of anything, especially that which is like poison or is a known poison (includes any allergic substance) to an individual's system, and that too in "one go", is always going to hurt, or it may stop the hurt forever. ;)

    Interesting. I drink a lot of smoothies as well but never include apples in the ones I make. I do buy fruit/veggie smoothies from a local place close to where I live because of the convenience...I'll have to ask if they remove the core of the apple or not.
