DOSE:
2 oz oral St. John's Wort (liquid)

BODY WEIGHT: 160 lb


First off, Iíll tell my drug experience. I am very experienced with weed, vyvanse and alcohol. I have done lsd multiple times. Shrooms twice and mdma once. I have also done my fair share of vicodins and percocets.

I had a whole bottle of st. Johnís wort, at the time I was badly addicted to the drug vyvanse. It was one of the nights I couldnít sleep so I figured Iíd try the st. Johnís wort.
Ingestion time was around 9pm
T+15:00- felling slight sedation, probably placebo.

T+30:00- feeling heavy, still stimulated from vyvanse.

T+1:00- feeling completely sedated, completely killed vyvanse high. All anxiety relieved.

T+1:30- very thirsty, get up to get a drink. I feel like Iím buzzed on alcohol.

T+1:45- very sleepy, go to bed.

All in all, itís a good herb that could be used for sleep/reducing anxiety. I got no euphoria.
