    The active substance in in passion flower is an MAOI, and MAOIs can be
    dangerous when taken after eating certain foods. Due to the very
    minimal recreational value combined with the dangerous I advise against
    using this herb recreationally. It can be useful for ayahuasca or
    potentiating various drugs, but before attempting this do your research
    and make sure you understand the risks associated with MAOIs and the
    proper precautions to take to avoid them.

    I've tried it as sleep aid rather than as a recreational drug, and it seemed to work OK, but as PenguinPhreak says it is an MAOI, but a weak one so caution is advised. Edited by: enquirewithin

    If you mean mixing with MDMA, it might not be safe, as mixing MDMA with
    MAOI is supposed to be dangerous. What about the passion flower was
    'pretty strong'?

    Passiflora is not much of an MAOI, at least not incarnata. I tried it
    with a known tryptamine containing plant that had been very effective
    with harmaline and did not even acheive threshold effects. There are
    many other species of passionflower and some may have a more
    favorable alkaloid profile, so I would still watch out, but at least for SWIM,
    it didn't work.
