I'm overweight and regularly use marijuana, tobacco, kratom, and take SSRI pharms...have experimented with opiates, pharms, hallucinagens, various ups and downs. I smoked a small bowl of scwagg about an hour before-hand, high is almost completely over.
We are moving to another house, I am almost out of weed and kratom and feeling moderately stressed, anxious, and pessimistic about finding meds in time before I'm out.
Other notes: I'm very sensitive to my body, I notice medicinal effects at very low doses of anything. I notice medicinal effects even in the absence of euphoria, at levels lower than most peoples thresh-hold dose.
Method: 4 grams organic catnip, warm steeped as tea, with mint and honey to complement the flavor, which is quite nice IMHO.
T-00:01 First sip, I notice a spark in my mind the moment it enters my mouth...almost nothing, very mild. 'There may be something to this' I think to myself. Shortly after I drink it all, I start reading trip reports and find it very easy to get interested in them.
T-00:03 Feelings of the mundaine becoming interesting, everything seems mildly amusing...sense of well-being. Throat is slightly numb and tingling.
T-00:05 Muscles relaxed, similar to kratom, but not nearly as strong. MJ like amusement, and slight kratom like euphoria noticed...again, it's subtle, but noticeable.
T-00:10 Still coming up, everything is more interesting than it was minutes before...starting to feel high. Slight visual sharpening. Slight increase in empathy and loving feelings toward companion. Mind is peaking, body still rising. No noticeable negative side effects, regular heartbeat, regular salivation ect...very slight paranoia, I feel that if taken in negative surroundings, it could be annoying and giddy rather than pleasant and tranquil.
T-00:15 Body is peaking, mind is almost disapated.
T-00:30 Positive mind effects have nulled...Feeling slightly dizzy...no it's not that, upon closer examination, it's like my mind needs a break.
T-00:45 Mind still a bit fuzzy, everything else has disapated.
T-00:45+ I stopped paying attention to the subtleties of the effects due to needing to take care of responisbility (ie: resume packing/moving)
In summary, I feel catnip deserves further study, as does kratom and mj. I'd like to get some good MJ, kratom and try a larger dose of catnip tea next time, I'm just starting to appreciate different synergies in the plant realm...kratom and mj for example synergize more potently than alcohol and pain killers Both mj and kratom are INTENSELY enhanced, it's rediculous. The Catnip was all very subtle, but noticeable to me. Everyone reacts differently so don't assume your experience will be like mine, or will even be positive at all. Starting low, working up is my golden rule when dealing with unknowns.
