has anyone ever mixed these two drugs? any info on what it might be like for SWIM?
Its not fun. But better then Benedryl alone... It makes me rather sleepy tho.. more so then bendryl alone. These 2 work good for lucid dreaming where your half awake and your opening ur eyes unsure if ur in the dream or not! LOL
I like it, nice L and 50mg of benadryl, nice chill, dreamy high
I did this once with spectacular results. he wasn't able to stay awake for more than about 90 minutes though. that was the only downside to the otherwise incredible trip
SWIM never really uses sedatives for strong psychoactive recreation, but he has taken benadryl as a sleep aid... and uses cannabis as a sleep aid more or less habitually.
I have unintentionally found as you other guys have that this combination does, indeed, make the last hour or two before bed a bit stranger and more disconnected, in a more-or-less happy way... almost like you accidentally started dreaming before you went to bed. SWIM won't bother trying to push it further with big recreational doses of Dypen, though.
SWIM really enjoyed this combination and hopes to investigate it more in the future.
The first time I took DPH, he took 400mg, followed by another 50mg an hour later. After 3 hours I was having a mild trip--he felt sedated, mildly uncomfortable, had no short-term memory, and saw non-existant flowing patterns all over the walls. However, he felt that it had plateaued and would not get any more interesting. He and his friend lit up some herb and enjoyed smoking for a while. It felt remarkably easy to blow smoke rings. As I smoked, he became very relaxed. Marijuana seemed to counter the uncomfortable body feeling that is rather difficult to describe. While it certainly doesn't help the terrible drymouth, it doesn't really seem to hurt.
Within about five minutes after smoking (only 1 or 2 small bowls, which took SWIM and his friend quite a while), I felt as if the DPH effects were magnified. Upon close examination of the walls, I saw words written all over them. It was fascinating to look at, and I would try to read sentences but with the combination of his nonexistent memory and the fact that the words were constantly changing, this was a bit difficult. SWIM also ended up in dreamlike and very detailed conversations with family members in his head, and saw transparent tentacly creatures moving around on the walls. (a full description of this report is in the trip reports thread.)
All of this was very pleasant, but next time I would like to blaze near the beginning of the trip to avoid the uncomfortable comeup feelings. If he tries this anytime soon, he'll report back in this thread.
I am usually much to sleepy on dyphen to think much bout bud but has tried it once and found it to yes magnify some of the effects but as stated I am always much to sleepy anyway.
SWIM came back from a party just now at 5:20 in the morning. He had done about 250mg of dph at around 10 oclock on the way out.. had a bunch of beer , then smoked two bowls and drank another beer. I was pretty messed up when he got back, had two slices of a frozen tombstone pizza and wanted mac and cheese and even managed to get it out of the pot and into a bowl in the microwave...forgot it up until now and is too tired to get up, hah
swim Took 12 dramamine figuring they are half as potent as dph and I was alrleady ripped so any discomfort woudl be non existent... swim'll see wont he
Swim passed out 30 seconds after that message and woke up 10 hours later
Last night, I took 500mg Diphenhydramine and 100mg 5-HTP. 45 minutes later, he smoked a bowl of weed, so that he would come up on both drugs at about the same time. He had the most vivid hallucinations on this dose that he has had on DPH yet, although nothing out of this world. For example, he saw a large amount of water on his wall dripping/flowing down. When he went out into a darkened hall, everything in his vision became blue, which looked quite pretty. He looked at a wall in the hallway and saw 50 large glowing orbs with legs crawling around all over it.
He still had incurable drymouth and mild uncomfort, but nothing terrible. All of his thought patterns would turn into conversations with himself, or other people. Some conversations were actually reproductions of real conversations he had had in the past week. Eventually, he would always feel compelled to say something out loud. He would struggle for a while, not sure if he really wanted to, but would always eventually say it. This would suddenly bring him back to reality, he would realize that there was no one in the room he was talking to, and his voice would sound foreign and distant. He often saw more large tentacly spiders on his walls, some of them would fly at his face and then upwards at the last second before they hit him.
Trying to respond to a text message he got from his girlfriend was a daunting task. It was extremely difficult for his eyes to focus, so the text on the cell phone remained mostly blurry. He realized that he had just sent the word "Thanks" instead of his intended message. He tried two more times to send the real message, thinking both times he had accomplished it, but when he woke up in the morning, there were no other messages sent, just the "Thanks."
He also woke up to the fan that is at the foot of his bed knocked on the floor and the cover broken off. The log he typed up while tripping was also no where to be found.
Even though he only started coming up at about 1 hour in, by 2 hours in he was almost back to baseline. However, it is 22 hours later and he still is not completely back.
All day today, whenever I would unfocus his eyes while staring at a uniform surface, curvy lines would begin to dance around all over the surface. He would also slip into daydreams easily, and still feels a bit spacey. Benedryl HPPD is certainly interesting.
While this trip certainly was characteristic of benedryl, I feel that the marijuana slightly enhanced the hallucinations (visual slightly, audio quite a bit), and evened out the uncomfortable body feelings (with the exception of drymouth).
Certainly a decent combination and one swim partakes in alot.The only full,delerium filled,diphenhydramine trip I has had was aided with marijuana.These seem to be two that go together rather well.
Wow, something quite interesting happened to SWIM tonight. It was 24 hours after he took benedryl, and felt completely back to baseline. He proceeded to smoke weed. A lot of it (3 waterfalls, fat bubbler bowl, joint). He started getting incredibly high. His heartbeat felt crazy but that didn't worry him cause he knew that it was his mind. CEVs were ridiculous. He had to bike home from his friend's house. On the way, everything in the distance would flash shapes of people or animals, until he stared directly at the object. So imagine shadows of various creatures just randomly appearing in your vision, and then turning into tree branches or a street sign as you approached them. A few times SWIM hallucinated bushes in the middle of the path home and rode right through them. Here he is typing this up and his vision keeps zooming in and out of this screen. The benedryl seems to have greatly enhanced this marijuana high, 24+ hours later.
...responding almost 2 years later.
I do this on a regular basis since I have major sleep issues for the past 4 years so the combination arises frequently and I have yet to have any negative effects from the combination. If anything, the effects were surreal and calm.
this combo at doses of diphenhydramine above 250mg will leave one unable to fully express a whole idea because one forgets the end of the idea in formulating sentences that aren't mushy and staggered...
feels ookey, gets one very relaxed in a way (also could be dependent of the cannabis being an indica or a sativa aswell) but it proved not to be a bad combo.
sleep is not easy on this combo at doses of 300mg or more, it is pretty odd and confusing with those dosages.
oh and, major cottonmouth... seriously, nothing more uncomfortable than a sahara desert mouth that never is quenched
Oh I forgot about mentioning the HORRID cotton mouth. Benadryl sucks up just about every ounce of moisture it can find in your body (your lips get chapped, dry mouth, dry throat, dry skin, less urine) and you tie that in with marijuana dry mouth and you end up with quite a sand hole. The biggest draw back of this combo I can think of (oh that and the fact that Benadryl makes me feel like a zombie in the morning big time...sort of groggy and hung over for a few hours after waking up).
I took 75mg last nite and after the 4th bong couldn't stop laughing for hours and swim smokes regularly , pointless laughter for no reason , still couldn't sleep
