Quite Nice
5-HTP, Cacao & Inositol
Citation:   Obsidian-Moon. "Quite Nice: An Experience with 5-HTP, Cacao & Inositol (exp113913)". Erowid.org. Dec 25, 2023. erowid.org/exp/113913

1.5 g oral Tryptophan (powder / crystals)
  10 g oral Cacao (powder / crystals)
Time of day: 8a.m on a Sunday.

Intake: 1.5 grams of 5-HTP and 12 grams of inositol dissolved in a 350 ml hot chocolate made with whole milk and 10 grams of pure cocoa powder.

8a.m: I decided to take a really high dose of 5-HTP by brewing it with a hot chocolate. The hot chocolate had this weird "tangy" salty taste but otherwise tasted fine.

8:30a.m: After a half-hour I feel slightly nauseous but otherwise fine.

9:00a.m: After 1 hour I begin to feel quite jittery similar to drinking three or four espresso in the morning.

9:30a.m: After 1 and 1/2 hours I got a groggy feeling in my head similar to eating a lot of greasy fast food and a sudden terrible stomach ache.

9:45a.m: At this point I violently throw up into the toilet for a good two or three minutes.

10:00a.m: Having thrown up, my head and gastrointestinal system feels completely fine at this point.

10:00a.m-12:00p.m: In the next 2 hours I feel really good and spaced-out. I can describe it as having very little anxiety and a very mild euphoria. I spent a lot of this time looking outside and just watching the world go by and being zoned out. Walking around had an inertia-like effect to it but otherwise nothing else was impaired. I went to church at 11:00a.m (My mom was driving.) and the music had a much more uplifting effect on me than normal. Despite being kind of spaced-out, conversation was very easy and relaxed to hold.

12:30a.m: After four and a half hours, all effects had worn off completely with no noticeable afterglow or negative effects.

In summary, getting nauseous and throwing up wasn't fun at all, but the latter effects were quite nice.
