    Has anyone done the G.F. Juice thing with DXM and noticed any increase
    in effects? SWIM's curious to try it, but hates the taste of grape fruit
    so if it doesn't seem to work for most people he'd rather not waste his
    time...

    Thanks.

    It is indeed tried, trusted, and true in my books.

    In general SWIM finds it makes the DXM come on after a longer time, and it takes much longer to peak, and the trip is longer. So pretty much it just elongates the entire thing. It also makes it considerably stronger. If one really dislikes the taste of grapefruit juice though, one may want to think twice.

    It works since it uses the same enzyme as DXM does

    To be more specific it blocks the enzyme in the liver that matobolizes DXM. Be careful though, it is also the same enzyme that caffeine goes through.

    A slip of paper a stranger on the street gave me:

    "I have tried drinking a mix of 100% juice citrus fruit drinks
    Drank .5 liters before and throughout trip
    Had a harder time not being fucked up, but changes arent drastic
    however they do seem more pleasant and a tad bit stronger, like adding 50-100 mg or even less
    My opinion, if your short, do it, if not, try it, if your loaded, i wouldnt bother, makes it even harder to pee after high doses."

    My dog has done it once and he knows it did help... How much I'm not sure but doggie's sure it did - he has lots of DXM experience. He hasn't done it since because of the taste of the juice... He already has to drink syrup and adding juice that tastes that bad doesn't sound fun most the time.

    grapefruit juice and dxm

    How do gapefruit juice make your dxm trip stronger? If gapefruit juice do make your trip stronger. Would grapefruit powdered extract do the same?

    Re: Grapefruit juice potentating question

    Grapefruit juice has several chemicals that inhibit or prevent the bio destruction or metabolism of DXM and other drugs. Therefore, it will potentiate the high and increase/prolong DXM's effects.

    It will therefore increase potential toxicity and the corresponding high.

    Interesting, never heard of that :-D
    Is it just a regular amount of juice, i.e. just like a cup or two?
    Or is this saying if you were to drink like a bottle?

    Good question. But there's TONS of information already on the forums. Do a search for grapefruit juice. It's consistently a hot topic in the opiates section (DXM is a hallucinogenic opiate).

    "The topic is already widely covered indeed. Look for The DXM and Grapefruit Juice FAQ v0.4d written by BlkFury, revised by SedahDrol" said Alf sipping his grapefruit juice.

    So. SWIM has got a question for those of you with experience with this compo.
    He has done DXM many times, even at the fourth plateau, so he is not afraid of having a bad time or freaking out. However tonight he wanted to hang out with his friends on DXM, second plateau, just to make the evening more interesting.
    His weight is 210 pounds, 100 kg, and he is going to drink a bottle of DXM-only cough drops which contain 375mg of DXM. This should be enough to give him a pleasant low second plateau trip. He has done this quantity many other times. He does not want to be fucked up, but he would like to get a stronger high (and longer) without having to spend more money (this bottles of syroup cost around 6 euro!).
    He was thinking of grapefruit juice! But he has some questions
    Since he does want to walk around and speak, is the grapefruit going to potentiate the DXM so much that he is not going to be capable of speaking and walking and interacting with the word? Is he going to reach higher plateaus?

    ^^ Did swiPolloaviariato ever do this experiment with grapefruit juice? Did he notice a difference?
