So we’ve had threads on drugs and nutrition in the past, so I figured why not start one for herbs.
I recently found a local health food/SWPL store that sells herbs in raw bulk quantities and have decided to experiment with some.
Share any that you thought were particularly useful or disappointing, ect.
Apparently this is some kind of green tea variant. Its effects are basically identical to that but more potent and brief. Speeds up thoughts and gives you a slight energy and mood boost. I think it could function as an excellent coffee substitute depending on how you brew it.
A few subtle mood and energy boosting effects but also found it to function to precipitate relaxation. I felt as though my body temperature was slightly raised while on it. Not particularly impressed/overall costs outweigh benefits.
“Adaptogen Tea” (includes Reshi Mushrooms, Eleuthro, Holy Basil, Aswaganda, Shiandra, Rhodiola, Gynostenma, Devils Club):
This made me feel incredibly sleepy and almost knocked me out at first. Felt deeply relaxed and was able to concentrate on very abstract thoughts and play around with images in my head with great acuity for a few hours.
I have been taking this for a week now and have noticed a massive improvement in my vision. I am slightly farsighted and have been able to completely forgo wearing glasses when driving. I have also noticed a very slight improvement in mental clarity and short-term memory. The only drawback is I am finding it harder to get to sleep, although this may be because I have been taking it too late in the day (supposed to be taken before afternoon).
Definitely recommend this to any backpackers or nature watchers.
Large African Cock:
The effects are subtle but definitely present. I felt an elevation in mood, alertness and a feeling of deep peacefulness. I think this could function as a good replacement for pharmaceutical anti-depressants.
