I had an interessting experience the other night with some valerian root pills.
2 pills taken with water
I still hadn't noticed any affects of the valerian, not even a bit of drowsiness, so I pop four more pills.
I fall asleep. It's unusual for me to fall asleep any time before
4 usually, so I think I was able to fall asleep this early because of the valerian. I experience some strange dreams that I'm unable to recall, aside from that they felt more realistic than usual.
I'm awakened by the voice of my friend C shouting 'Let me in, I got pot, let me in dammit!'. After I open my eyes the voice continues to shout, and I experience sparkles in my peripheral vision. I run to the door and no one is there, not even on the side walk.
There's no way that my buddy could have gotten away that fast. I heard the voice first in my dream, and then once I had woken up for a few seconds, so I believe that the audio in my dream was carried over to my waking mind, at least for a few seconds. If something along these lines is true, I suspect that it happened because of the valerian.
In any case, I'm going to experiment with my valerian root pills tonight, to see if anything spectacular happens.
