Quite Enjoyable
Valerian, Melatonin, 5-HTP & Vitamin B-6
Citation:   Mr. Lion. "Quite Enjoyable: An Experience with Valerian, Melatonin, 5-HTP & Vitamin B-6 (exp75628)". Dec 20, 2022.

3800 mg oral Valerian (extract)
  6 mg oral Melatonin (pill / tablet)
  100 mg oral Tryptophan - 5-HTP (capsule)
  50 mg oral Vitamin B-6 (pill / tablet)
Lately I have been reading about natural and herbal capsules. I have started to get a hold of as many as possible and trying them in different mixes. Tonight I am ingesting 3800mg of Valerian Root extract (capsules), 6mg of Melatonin (tablets), 100mg of 5-HTP (capsule) and 50mg of Vitamin B-6 (tablet). I will be writing this during the experience.

8:25pm - Take all pills orally with some fruit punch. Yum!

8:48 - Start to feel an odd feeling in my head, like a nice tingle on the sides and back of my head. Also my body has gotten quite warm. I am listening to very relaxing experimental music and it sounds better than it has before. It 'flows easier' into my ears. That is the best way I can describe it. Keep in mind I am also wearing a pair of head phones. My burps leave a taste of the Valerian root which is quite unpleasant in taste but nothing to bad.

9:01 - I have been laying back with my eyes closed and still listening to music. Every other noise seems to cancel out and all I can hear is the music. It is very pleasant. I feel a great sense of relaxation and a tingle in my feet. The music sounds very vivid and real. Like very sharp defined music and vocals. My heart beat has also gotten slower and weaker than before.

9:07 - I have switched the music to some 80's music. The electronic drums sounds very nice on my ears. They are like a really good pulse. Hard to explain, but the pulse sound is a good one. My eyes have gotten heavier feeling. I have gotten very tired. So far so good though. No bad thoughts or feelings. The sense of relaxation has heightened greatly. I feel totally serene nothing is bothering me and I feel one with myself.

9:27 - I have grown very tired and will be retiring for the night soon. But so far the feeling has remained the same. No ups or downs so far just flat. A great relaxing chill feeling. My eyelids feel like they weigh a ton. Overall no complaints, no worries.
Overall no complaints, no worries.
I am looking forward to sleeping. Lately I have been up late and not sleeping. This will be wonderful.

9:53 - So, I have been laying down on my couch with music on, still 80's music. The effects don't seem to have worn off by any means. The relaxing, chill feeling is still present and the music still sounds great. However I have gotten very, very drowsy due to it. I will be heading out now.

Overall - I think that this mix was rather enjoyable having only been experiencing for an hour. Very relaxing mildly sedated feeling.
