    Just a quick question - Has anyone had any expereince with this chemical or with Corydalis Yanhusuo, the plant it comes from?



    information seems a bit thin on the ground so any insight would be useful....



    cheers

    Corydalis: I have used this in the form of an extract. It has no recreational value, but it puts you to sleep like nothing else and has some value as a pain killer. In extract form, the active dose is in the milligram range. It also has a reputation for being bad for the liver. Not good for daily use.

    cheers for the info - do you know if it's comparable to say kratom or codiene or something of the ilk?

    No recreational value at all. Just a good sleep aid. Used
    infrequently only when needed, so as to mitigate any possible negative
    health consequences.



    Get the Corydalis Yanhusuo 80% THP extract from on-line chinese herb vendors. Also get a milligram scale.



    An effective sleeping pill can be made from 50-75mg of the extract in a
    gellcap, then fill up the rest of the space in the capsule with
    ashwaghanda powder.



    Sleep will come within 30-45 minutes of taking the pill.



    The sleep inducing effects are dinimished by daily use anyway, so for
    that reason, and possible liver toxicity (which isn't 100% proven, just
    some conflicting studies out there) it should be ised infrequently for
    maximum effect. 1-2 times a week is all you should use it, or less
    frequently.

    Corydalis YanHuSuo extract (THP) TetraHydroPalatamine?

    While I've seen Corydalis Yanhusuo extract THP usually listed as Tetrahydropalmatine I've also seen other sources list THP as Tetrahydropalatamine. Im wondering if this is just a typo or if this is a similar alkaloid. If this is a similar alkaloid does anyone have any experiences with it? I have emailed the online vendors asking wether this is just a typo and I have yet to even recieve an answer from any of them. Any info is welcomed.

    The correct spelling is tetrahydropalmatine, as far as I can find out that other one does not exist.

    ^ THP doesn't activate any of the Opioid receptor sites so I don't think that you will experience any 'mu agonist effects'. It does have some analgesic and sedative effects though.

    My friend tried some "ultra enhanced corydalis" from a very reputable vendor. He took it during the middle of the day, thinking it might be like kratom, and it put him to sleep in an hour. It comes on in 30 minutes after ingestion, which seems really fast to him, and the next thirty minutes were pretty intense, slight vision change, heavy body load (almost impossible to move around), and a spinning feeling. This is not a recreational drug, it wasn't fun, and it only leads to sleep.
