Interesting Discovery
Cannabis & Tryptophan

T+ 0:00
100 mg oral Tryptophan (pill / tablet)
  T+ 5:00   repeated smoked Cannabis (plant material)
(I have not proof-read any of the following because I am tired and don't feel like it, so if I made a lot of stupid grammar errors forgive me)

I have been smoking cannabis at a minimum of 1 time per week for the past year and a half so I am fairly used to the effects of cannabis. I take vitamins regularly (as long as I remember) and I had read some good things about how 5-HTP can benefit one (nothing I read had anything to do with cannabis and I was totally unaware of the fact that this combination had been discussed previously, many people beleive that it is placebo), so I decided to buy myself a bottle of some naturally obtained 5-HTP and see if it actually does all it says its supposed to do.

I took a 100 mg 12 hour time released pill at about 5:00 PM and then forgot about it entirely. At about 10:00 PM I decided to fire up my vaporizer and finish up the monster bowl my friends and I where unable to finish a few days before. So once it is all heated up and shit I start toking off it. Now I knew this weed was supposed to be some 'danky ass shit' but I had hit it quite a few times when we first started on this bowl (it was around a .5-.7 gram bowl) and felt a normal high that I was used to, but when I started to feel the effects kick in, I felt less in my head and more in what I was seeing, everything just seemed more altered than usual. I payed little mind to this and just kept hitting it, then I started to feel alot more body but it was a happier feeling in my torso then usual, and at this point, my head felt much happier then normal. I was not really feeling the usual heavy feeling and actually felt more uplifted than anything else.

I continued hitting the vape until it the remains were thouroughly browned. I was feeling great, I started to notice that there were honey comb paterns on everything, and that while looking at computer screen, everything around it was rippling, like somebody kept dropping a rock into a pond, waiting for the water to almost settle, then dropping another rock in the same place. I felt really happy and I felt like a plank, like my legs where connected to my torso and just, planky (sorry for poor description I cant really think of any other words to describe it). I talked to my friends for about a hour then decided to lay in my bed (which is goose feather pillow topped, which a feather pillow, and a feather blanket) until I fell asleep.

Once I got into bed I felt like I was floating on a cloud (I am used to laying in my bed when I am stoned and it normally feels like I am floating then too, but this was much more profound). I enjoyed this feeling as I slowly drifted off into sleepy land and woke up feeling fully refreshed and mildly buzzed (something that I had stopped noticeing before this experience). I was then determined to figure out what exactly caused this to happen and I recalled that I had taken the 5-HTP earlier that day and did some googling and found a report that backed up my observations of feeling extra euphoria, more energized, and more psychedelic. I have been doing some reading about using 5-HTP and I'm not sure about what damage it can cause if I use it occasionally for recreational purposes.
