    Does Kava Kava increase the power of benzo's. I took kava kava in the
    morning before school started just a small amount. Then at work I took
    2mg of xanax now usually I won't even feel the xanax and have never
    before but this time I did. I felt a little euphoria and floaty for the
    first 30 minutes but then just sedation after that. Anyone else have
    any experience with combining the two? I will try more of this later to
    see if i get the same results.

    When I took Kava kava the first and second trip was AWESOME I felt like I was drunk. But after that I can barely notice its effects. It is very mild now and isn't very fun unless in combination with something else.

    Kava Kava potentiates Benzos?

    I think I read somewhere on this forum that kava kava potentiates benzos. Is this true? I've been looking for a non dangerous way to boost a benzo high. Marijuana is nice... but I'm looking for something different. Sublingual ingestion seems to be effective. So besides alcohol and weed, what else would increase the effects of a benzo (in particular: Diazepam/Valium)? Would 5-HTP help? Thanks.

    I can't see why you would want to do this but you could take your dose intranasally i.e. snorting a line. Tried doing this, even heard of doctors saying it was ok. To me this isn't worth the trouble, taking it orally works good enough.

    I suppose even kratom would potentiate benzos, but combining drugs with sedative effects can never be considered safe. Frankly, why pursue benzos as a recreational drug? They are addictive and not that much fun.

    I take about 15-20mg Valium a day (almost).
    Snorting it? No, it's not water soluble.
