    OK, everyone's discussed the use of 5-HTP with ecstacy to death.
    So, does anyone have a definite conclusion on how well 5-HTP goes with
    pot? There are some glowing trip reports on this combo, some
    people even say it makes it feel "like their first high".



    I'm no expert, but I would assume 5-HTP might enhance pot because it
    makes more serotonin available in the blood, and pot's main mode of
    action is acting on serotonin as a partial serotonin re-uptake
    inhibitor and also increasing the production of melatonin (which is
    made from serotonin) by around 4,000x.



    Any thoughts? I haven't really heard any discussion about this here which surprises me.

    It doesn't seem to help or hinder my high when I take 5-HTP.



    On the other hand, if you take a size 00 gelcap full of sceletium
    powder orally about 1-2 hours before smoking some pot, now you're
    talking stoned! Or at least I am.

    never tried it but have heard it makes you not necissarely more high,
    but in a different way, like more euphoric or something. Worth a
    shot in my opinion.

    works very well in swims oppinion.


    seems to be a more upbeat energetic high rather than a drowsy one.

    I've tried 5-HTP with pot twice I think. From what I remember the high
    was a bit more intense, and I was real giddy and giggly. The second
    time I threw up the 5-HTP, but this was taken like right when I woke up.

    With me it definetly helps the high. No doubt about it and I'm
    extremely paranoid about making assumptions which could be based on a
    placebo effect.



    It kinda helps prevent that burnt-out, empty headed feeling I get,
    especially later in the high. Doesn't change anything with the
    foggy muddled confusion that happens during and after though.
    Caffeine + 5-HTP makes for a great high, to stay awake and keep me
    flying.
