Something Happened...
Citation:   NickP. "Something Happened...: An Experience with Catnip (exp16735)". Apr 11, 2011.

0.75 g smoked Catnip (plant material)

I am 13 years old and have been into drugs for about 6 months. I used to smoke a lot of weed until I got caught. I am now in weekly drug testing and I am not willing to risk flunking it by smoking weed, so I have been trying to find a legal alternative. I've been wanting to get something strong like Hops or Salvia Divinorum, but I don't have anywhere to ship to without the possibility of my mother finding my package, so that is not a possibility in the near future. Then I heard that catnip could give you a good buzz so I went to the grocery store and picked up 2.1 oz for $1.50..

The first 2 times I smoked catnip, I got a mild buzz, but that was because I only took about 2-3 small drags every time. I wanted much more, so right now I just smoked some more, but I had much more, and I took huge, fast drags. My throat hurts like a son of a bitch, but I have noticed effects never recorded by anyone I have ever heard of. This is probably because I am young and have a small body weight.

Like I said before, the first two times were very mild buzzes, except for the fact that when I talked to my brother, his voice seemed telephone quality, but I just had some right now.. at first, everything seemed much more sharp and my eyes seemed to be working much better than usual. Next, I started noticing flashes of light in the streets, and this began to scare me quite a bit. At this point I was noticing mild paranoia. After I finished, I decided to go inside. On the way in, I noticed some things that were very unimportant, like a spider web hanging from a tree. When I looked in my front yard, it looked much emptier than usual. I noticed that now the living room was brighter, cleaner, and smaller. Right now as I am typing, I am feeling fine, but I have noticed that it works best where there is a lot going on, like traffic moving.

Most experiences from other people were generally extremely mild buzzes, but I was shocked today, to find out that this worked for me as a mild visual & audio hallucinogen. In my case, it was definetely worth $1.50, if not more.
