Catnip & Melatonin

4:30am

I wanted to sleep yet I've been unable to like a normal human for the past week. My sleep schedule is backward, but I'm getting the proper amount of sleep. I decided to get desperate so I cut a line of plain, store bought melatonin. I insufflated roughly 100mcg's. I waited.. and my nose felt a bit uncomfortable but nothing like trying to snort Flexeril and I felt a bit different, more relaxed. Nothing special. I decided to bum around online to see what all I could find.

I came across the catnip section and it reminded me of the friendly encounters I'd had with catnip in the past and how it makes sleeping a bit easier. As I read through the Experience Vaults on catnip, I decided to grab my bag of catnip off the fridge top.

5am. I began first by sprinkling my cats with catnip first, since it is primarily theirs, as if I felt guilty for taking their kitty crack. I stuck two standard rolling papers together and stuffed it with catnip. I can't tell you exactly how much but it was quite a bit. I smoked it as quickly as I could. It was a bit harsh and it smelled quite like a bonfire. The taste was interesting but not wretched.

5:15am. I rolled a standard sized cigarette of pure catnip again, directly following the previous one. At this point, I started feeling much happier than I had been feeling earlier. I had been bored, unamused and somewhat sad before I smoked. Now, I feel at peace and I'm certain that my eyes have dialated [in a good way]. I noticed this as I was looking at my computer screen, still reading on a hrm reduction websitewith a design pri=ominantly dark colors for fun, I changed over to a different page that was all white and it hurt and the colors were piercing, but not overly painful. Maybe it was more surprising than painful. Either way, on the white screen, there were colors that I knew weren't supposed to be there.

5:50am. I just put out another standard sized catnip cigarette. I feel as though I'd smoked a small bowl of weed. I feel like I could definitely go to bed now and not toss and turn. I might snort the rest of the melatonin and lay down now.. and probably won't wake up til 6pm! Whatever, though.

Overall, catnip is relaxing on its own. Adding melatonin made me ready to fall asleep. Anyway, I feel nice now and I'm going to sleep! Yay for catnip & melatonin!
