I am an experienced psychonaut, with dozens of trips on a wide variety of substances over the past 10 years, from DXM to Salvia, RC's, to your standard boomers and doses. One thing that had flown under my radar that I'd never tried before was GHB.

It seemed to have a bad reputation as a date-rape drug and because it was easy to OD even with low doses. I decided to check it out and form my own conclusions when a friend mentioned that he had some available.

My first experience, I took a cap and sat on the couch, measuring how my body reacted. It was comparable to taking MDMA, with more of a body buzz and lacking any visual stimulation or waves of euphoria that you get with MDMA. I was very relaxed and cozy, started to nod out in front of the TV so I ended up going to bed and sleeping very soundly. Woke up with a lot more energy than I normally have.

Decided to up the ante when I went to a music festival with my wife. At sunset, we took a lid of GHB, along with two tabs of LSD and a point of MDMA each. The GHB set in quick, within 10-15 minutes, and the rest kicked in not long after. Seems that the GHB sped along the 'coming up' process so we didn't stand around waiting an hour or two for shit to 'kick in,' we hit our plateau pretty quickly and were having a great time.

When the GHB wore off after a few hours (the warm body buzz had lessened noticeably), we took another 1/2 cap to perk us back up. The G kept the trip nice and mellow, with no anxiety to speak of. We dosed again, taking a couple more tabs of LSD and another point of MDMA, and hit our peak hard.

We were both high as kites and melting face, but the GHB seemed to smooth everything out nice and easy. Normally when I'm that high, I will get clenched jaw/ teeth grinding, and will sometimes start to develop a headache that becomes pretty intense by the end of my trip. I may start to feel 'overloaded' and get disoriented. The GHB helped me stay completely relaxed instead of becoming tense, and I had absolutely no issue with jaw clenching or headache. I was calm and composed, even though I was totally overcome with euphoria and thoroughly 'whited out.'

Towards the end of the night, well, really it was morning by the time we made it back to camp, but we were still very high. This was about 9 hours after our initial dose, and 5-6 hours after re-dosing. We both took another cap of GHB and laid down for what I assumed would be an exhausting day of tossing and turning, trying to sleep but not being able to because I'm too high.

I had brought some benzos to take in case things got bad and I needed to get knocked out, but I didn't need them in the slightest. After the last cap of G, we were both out like lights within ten minutes of laying down. Normally at camping music festivals I would be lucky to get even 4 hours of sleep any night because the heat and noise are too much and eventually force you awake.

This time, I slept like a baby for 6 hours straight, woke up STILL TRIPPING and felt really energized and positive, no hangover whatsoever. Didn't have that foggy brain-dead feeling I get after tripping for awhile, I felt really refreshed. We never really came down before doing it all again the next night, which was equally awesome, albeit a little more hazy.

In conclusion, I would say I had an extremely positive experience using GHB during my trip. I was amazed at its effectiveness, and I will be making an extra effort from here on out to have some GHB on hand for EVERY trip. It alleviated pretty much every negative effect that I might get from tripping: the anxiety-ridden climb up, the tension/ clenching/ aches that come at the plateau, the nightmare-fueled and draining come-down, the battle to fall asleep, and the zombie-minded hangover. It can be dangerous, but used intelligently it can have amazing benefits.
