Valerian Root
    #26261303 - 10/18/19 05:24 PM (1 year, 3 months ago)

Go to the bulk herbs section at your local herb store and everyone will love how it smells when you open up that bottle

Valerian Root can be brewed into a tea, or you can make extract by leaving the dried root in alcohol such as vodka for 30+ days.

When brewing tea, you can brew hot same as you'd make shroom tea, 15-30 mins in simmering water, but there are some reports that actives are lost to the heat - this is not my experience. I've made Valerian tea many times using simmering water, and it was always very potent. Make sure to cover with a lid.

The other option for tea is a cold brew. Measure out the desired amount of dried Valerian Root and put it into a jar with water, place jar in fridge. The longer it sits in the fridge, the stronger the tea will be. You can also add some alcohol like vodka, I like to use whisky.

I generally use 2 tablespoons of Valerian Root for each brew, adjusting to more or less depending on the desired strength.

The effects are very relaxing, sedating and will even make you feel high if using larger amounts of Valerian. People compare the effects to being similar to benzos, such as Valium.

Drinking some Valerian tea may help to mellow out during a comedown or if experiencing a difficult trip & looking for some relief. It could also be drank prior to taking psychedelics to ease pre-trip anxiety, although it may take away some strength of the experience as well.

Just picked up some from the local market. I've never tried any of the capsules or whatnot, I only buy the dried root. Costs about $1.25/oz

I brew about 1 or 2 tablespoons into a tea. Super relaxing, definitely gets me high. Sometimes it pretty much knocks me out. Great for ending the night if you have troubles getting sleepy.

And it has the added bonus of smelling like some stank ass foot

ive never felt high from it at all, (though ive only tried the essential oil)

..somewhat reduces anxiety, helps going to sleep, takes edge off mushrooms, may induce dreams.

I'm not sure how oils and capsules and all that compare... but a nice strong tea brewed from the root for a decent amount of time gets me high, and not like a relaxing tea high, literally high

I did a little searching around because I've never looked much into general experiences with Valerian. I stumbled upon it one day, bought some at the market & was extremely surprised at how effective it was. Felt like I had just discovered some legal hidden drug that nobody knows about... except the middle aged lady that was also buying some herbs and she gave me a knowing look & said, "that's good medicine"

Anyway, according to what I've read posted online, a lot of the extracts, capsules and all that are not very high quality and may not give much effect.

The dried root I buy is definitely high quality.

Also, most dosages listed are pretty small and probably wouldn't produce much effect.

I brew a minimum of one tablespoon, usually at least 2, for 15-30min. I've also made alcohol extracts with vodka by just leaving the dried root in a large mason jar with vodka for a month+. I'm not sure the extract is worth the trouble.


And cats love it as much as they love catnip, or mine do anyway

Valerian root is a cat attractant in a way similar to catnip.

I've tried it a few times before, as a dream herb primarily. It would always work the first time, never the second. So for dreams it seemed to have a strong tolerance effect after the first time using it without a tolerance break. Very powerful and clear for inducing dreams though.

Never bought it in bulk like that however, just in capsule form. I bet buying it raw would definitely have better mileage than the way I took it. I may order some, it's been a few years since I tried it.

Had some tea tonight, 2 tablespoons brewed for around 25min... its basically like making shroom tea. Maybe next time I do shroom tea, it will be valerian shroom tea :strokebeard:

It would probably definitely be good for taking the edge off the come up.

About 2/3 through the cup, the high came on, nice warm rush in my body... feelsgoodman

Only thing is, it doesn't last real long, but stuff like this never lasts too long for me. Maybe I'll make the next brew extra strong.

Only hope can give rise to the emotion we call despair. But it is nearly impossible for a man to try to live without hope, so I guess that leaves Man no choice but to walk around with despair as his companion.

Hm, was unaware of its usage as a "dream herb" - I'll try to see if I notice any effect.

Last night I kept rebrewing the root (definitely still has effect on the rebrew unless maybe you do a longer boil), and also added another 2 tablespoons... ended up nodding off on the couch

I've quit smoking weed recently as well as putting a lot of extra focus on my dreams, so my dreams are already pretty active right now.
