DOSE: T+ 0:00 15 mg oral Pharms - Clonazepam (pill / tablet)
  T+ 0:00 800 mg oral Kava (liquid)
  T+ 0:30 1200 mg oral Kava (liquid)


I take 6mg of clonazepam daily, so the 15mg dose I took this morning was kid's stuff. I decided to purchase a bottle of kava extract (40% kavalactones, app. 2000mg kavalactones per bottle). I tried 800mg kavalactones and, pleased with the mild anxiolytic, euphoric, and very strong muscle relaxant effects that were brought on after about 30 minutes, I decided to down the rest of the bottle.

Anxiolytic effects more pronounced; euphoria and muscle relaxation still moderately strong, but not changed since the 800mg kavalactone dose.

Feeling VERY sociable (a wonderful feeling for a social phobic such as myself); euphoria much stronger; muscle relaxation has practically turned my legs to jello. No cognitive dulling of any sort.

Effects continuing from 10 minutes ago, though exponentially stronger. I feel as if I could take on the world, if I could just make my muscles work properly, lol!

Just one thing to say--how can this stuff be legal???!!!!

Not much change from the 30 minute mark, aside from some pronounced OEV's, CEV's, and an almost LSD-like distortion in spacial perceptions.

The effects haven't subsided in the least in the past four hours, and I hope they never do!

~Anxiety level (1-10) -- 0; very disinhibited, in fact.
~Muscle relaxation (1-10) -- 10; and this is saying something, considering that not even Flexeril, Soma, Elavil, or Zanaflex have helped with my fibromyalgia.
~Pain relief (1-10) -- 10; I had a moderate headache before taking this, as well as the constant muscle-aches I deal with day to day. All eradicated.
~Hypnotic effect (1-10) -- 1; I don't feel sleepy in the least. In fact, I feel mildly stimulated.
~Aphrodisiac effect (1-10) -- 10!!! Jerking off was quite an experience, lol.

Still feeling the effects strongly, though the hallucinations have subsided just recently.

Most effects subsided, except for moderate muscle relaxation, anxiolysis, and pain relief.

Back to baseline.
