Anyone on here wish to share the dreams they've had after taking melatonin?
I take californian poppy (probably natural melatonin?) when waking from deep sleep in need to smoke.
dreamt about being a raptor jumping around catching food around 9 o clock. I wonder what it even means..
>Anyone on here wish to share the dreams they've had after taking melatonin
no because i actually sleep peacefully after taking melatonin
i get weird dreams when i take nyquil though
I used to work third shift, and I had a hard time falling asleep. There's this iced tea that's got Bob Marley's face on it, and it used to have melatonin (they changed the formula though)
I drank a whole bottle and tried to go to sleep after work one morning, but my family kept waking me up. After about what felt like an hour, I saw some colors creeping in from my periphery. Then I saw a helicopter in my bedroom.
It was about the size of a poker card. It looked exactly like the helo from Thomas the Tank Engine, minus the face. It moved like it was made of paper, reminiscent of Paper Mario. I watched it fly around a little, and thn passed out for a good 8 hours.
i've taken melatonin hundreds of times and never had any weird dreams. L-DOPA however never fails to disappoint, i've had all kinds of bizarre dreams since i started taking that.
I once woke up during the night maybe 3 hrs after taking melatonin and was convinced someone was going to break into my car. I couldn't shake the feeling of paranoia. Since then I haven't taken anymore.
I've been wanting to make some legal dream brews including some combination of the following ingredients (will be doing a lot of experimenting to figure it out)
Silene capensis (xhosa dream herb)(tea/chewed)
Entada rheedi (african dream seed)(smoked, maybe tea)
calea zatatechi(mexican dream herb)
I've heard valerian, gingko, and peppermint can enhance lucidity. I've had experience using chewing tobacco while in just the right nap, it causes you to only fall asleep 90%, kind of forcing hypnogogia, but its hard to remember the visions and I'm not sure if this would enhancing actually sleeping dreams. Cannabis can supress dreams. I've also heard a report that calea can fuck up your other drugs and havent heard great results from it and supposedly its vile. I've also read calea is supposed to require a fuckton to work, like a whole pot of tea, 5 joints of it, eat some it, tincture it in vodka, fuck it just set a bunch of it on fire and hotbox your closet, all on top of it tasting like a dead womans diarhea. So I might get rid of that I'll give it a try.
So the plan is, take the melatonin a bit prior and possible a small amount of diphenhydramine or dextromethorphan. Taking it during naptime could enchance the dreams. Then brew my tea of dream herbs with some drops of valerian, peppermint oil, and ginkgo. May add some yerba mate to the tea, gives you a bit of vitality and its small amount of caffeine may help. As I drink the tea I'll smoke the smokeable shit in a base of marshmallow root, maybe with a small inclusion of tobacco. I've considered adding just a small amount of psychedelic, amanitas, psilocybe, LSD, or LSA, just a small amount to make it a little trippier. Other things that may help are an herbal dream pillow, incense, and of course your own dreaming techniques. I've heard of people having some hardcore dreams after eating some strong indian food and curry and shit, sometimes due to straight up food poisoning or just the large amount of(CONT)
seasoning and hot spices. Possibly could incorporate some environmental factors such as temperature and noise. I've had some pretty intense lucid dreams after sleep deprivation but usually I just die for 10 hours. Only other thing I may add is some chamomile, opiate or california poppy, maybe some marihuanilla, or something else just to enhance the sedative and relaxtion effects.
The reason I'm doing this is because most legal highs and entheogens are basically bullshit, but when it comes to dreams it seems there is tons of herbs, compounds, and other things that actually show results.
I once took a melatonin and ate a hot sauce and jalepeno chicken sandwich right before I went to sleep. Dreamed I got shot by Pavarotti at a swanky restaurant where Lou Reed was the manager who tried to make up for the fact that I got shot by giving me shitty coupons. After that dream, I dreamed I went to some college lecture where the speaker was handing out drugs and then the lecture got busted and we all went to a jail with a ball pit and slides. Then some Hare Krishnas showed up and we flew away from the prison.
I woke up laughing.
I take melatonin when changing my sleep schedual (which is often) and I never have any unusual dreams or sleeping experiences.
Also I get constant all-day leg cramps after a week or so if I keep taking it nightly, is this normal?
I've been using 3mg of melatonin to help me sleep for a few years now. I've never had crazy dreams...actually its very rare I remember my dreams...it has happened maybe 5 times in as many years.
My sleep schedule has been a mess for a while, though...I think it's naturally reversed. Anyways, the melatonin doesn't actually help me sleep...but helps me sleep lighter to hear alarms. I used to literally sleep though everything. After trying melatonin, I found myself more likely to wake up if I set an alarm.
On a related note, my sister was a habitual bedwetter up into high school, until taking melatonin. While taking it, she is finally able to respond to her bladder during sleep.
Protip for OP and anyone else who cares: Last I knew, melatonin isn't regulated by the FDA because it's considered a 'supplement' and not a medication. This means that the potency of a tablet of melatonin can vary by brand. I've taken some melatonin that does fuckall for me, and some that knocks me out almost instantly.
I used to take melatonin quite often to help me sleep but stoped for a while.
Last night I had a fucked up dream after taking some.
I dreamt that my old friend had some sort of paper that when put through a printer would make cocaine. I helped him make it and for some reason I was responsible for holding it. At some point a soccer team scored a goal and I "respawned" to put it best, and when I went back to the place where i Was holding the coke it was gone. It was in a mall for some reason. He was pissed that I lost it and said it would only be fair to hit me in the face 3 times. He did and it didn't hurt since I don't tend to feel pain in dreams. Me and this friend have never touched coke and never plan to either, nor is he violent.
Later on I was driving somewhere at night. The road was narrow, steep and windey. Everntually it got so steep that I was going vertical and all of a sudden everything turned 2D and the sky turned white. Before I knew it I was sitting on a couch with the friend from earlier looking at a broken TV. The friend proceeded to show me a video of myself stumbling around and knocking over the TV and breaking it. I figured I must have been drugged or something and didn't once consider I was dreaming.
Just some weird shit with bad vibes, but interesting. I've definitely had a lot worse dreams.
I have a bunch of those seeds laying around. They're hard to crack open and the inside tastes terrible. Well it's more so just the burning sensation it gives your mouth. It never seemed to work for me.
I heard you can plant them and grow branches that have leaves though. Would smoking or making tea from the leaves be better?
There is a pitiful amount of info on them. Some indication that they contain saponin which is what is in that big ass tree frog that has a narcotic effect. All I've heard is you smoke the meat from the sead. Some dude on youtube did a "1000x extract" drink and said it did not shit, but I've also heard reports to its effectiveness. It also is kinda weird how expensive/rare-ish it is online, supposedly thoses seeds can float across oceans and plant themselves, and theres pictures of people holding seed pods that look like they have MASSIVE seeds in them. If I ever do grow them, roots and leaves would be tested, but I haven't read anything about them.
so you tried eating them and they burned?
entheogen guy here again, on melatonin:
This is just shit I've heard. Melatonin is a hormone your body excretes in very small amounts a few hours before your circadian rhythm wants you to go to sleep. I've heard it has little to no effect, I've also heard it has great effect, and I heard one guy on the radio said taking melatonin results in almost no melatonin absorbed and that your body produces and uses the correct amount anyway.
That being said, I also heard cannabis can deplete/supress melatonin and its reactions. When I was a huge stoner for awhile one day I didn't smoke except maybe a lil in the morning, and I took a couple melatonin pills at some point. I fell into the most deep fucking cerebral almost painful sleep, like 14 hours or some shit, felt like I was waking up from a coma. It felt unpleasent but like my body needed it.
Also them seeds are supposed to be good luck charms, probably moreso if you find them on a beach rather than buying them from bouncingfuckboybotanicals
Yeah I tried cracking open the brown shell which was hard as fuck, and eating the white "meat" inside, and that shit burned like it was really acidic or something. Hard to explain. Didn't seem to enhance my dreams but I only tried it two times or so. I also tried smoking some of the meat.
When I've done DXM it has usually been in the 300mg range (second plateau). This is enjoyable for music and movies that don't require paying too much attention to the story. MST3K was great on this. Really trippy. I also went on Omegle and ended up finding other people tripping. One particularily memorable moment was when these two dudes were dancing to the song "What is Love" and I couldn't help but join them. It was bliss.
I did 600mg once (third plateau) and holy fuck what a mindfuck. There were times when I thought I was dying. I had no idea how or why, but I just had been convinced that I was dying. I even wrote a suicide note. I also at once point saw what looked to be white shadowy humanoid figures all around my room, standing and even sitting in my chair. I swore I was a robot at one point too. Many other fucked things/thoughts occurred that I can't remember because it was years ago.
All times I mixed it with weed which is necessary in my opinion to combat nausea/itchiness. 300mg can be interesting and recreational but 600mg+ was indescribably fucked.
To anyone thinking of trying DXM, start with 200-300mg smoke/vape weed once it starts to kick in and throughout the experience.
Also make SURE that the only active ingredient is DXM. No Guafenisen or any of that shit.
I will never try DPH again. It was really interesting at a high dose where I would constantly space out and have conversations with people who weren't there, then immediately forget the dialogue when I realized I was talking to myself outloud.
That was fun, but what wasn't fun was taking too little. I think it was 300mg or so? It was hell. It was like I had restless body syndrome or some shit. I was trying to sleep and I just kept jolting up to a sitting position with this weird emotion I can't explain. I would not recommend it personally.
I think it was because a bunch of asshats in a highschool drank it as if it was normal juice, and then became sick. Also because of the drowsiness it caused.
I can't even find that drink in my gas stations that used to have it in stock, but that's what happens when morons accuses the drink of making you drowsey and feel goody, WHEN IT'S SUPPOSE TO DO JUST THAT.
