A more recent account, less touched by "all that was zany" in Ludlow's
literary background, of the ingestion of large amounts of hashish (in this
case true hashish -- about six grams worth, administered in "a deliberate
overdose") is given by Dr. Andrew
Weil in The Natural Mind:
The effects of the drug were felt within forty minutes and were pleasant
but strong for about a half-hour....
....I would not willingly repeat the experience.
Weil, Andrew The Natural Mind
