First and foremost, I apologize if this may be in the wrong section.
I've heard many good things about valerian, and have started taking it as my sleeping supplement. I've heard some other uses of it, however. I've looked on Erowid: Erowid Valerian Vault and have seen some reports of it as being mildly psychedelic. Has anyone "overdosed" on this, intentionally or not, and gotten this effect? I'm mainly just curious, since it seems plausible due to the serotonin release (i believe it was serotonin). Thouhts?

Ive used this many times. Have sleep apnea or something. Not so bad anymore. But I used to eat handfuls at a time, never had any psychedelic effects from it. Try some Valerian root and melotonin together. Had great results with these puppies combined.

I think he was "worried" about overdosing it. Could be wrong though

The main reason I ask is because of both wanting the sleep affects (which it has worked these last couple of nights), as well as using it recreationally for the hell of it. I've been taking Sleep these last few nights (has melatonin, tryptophan, hops flower, and some other sh** lol).
My main reason for making this thread, however, was to see if the use of it recreationally is possible. I've used an alkaloid extract from valerian recreationally before, but just was wondering if anyone had ever gotten these effects just from an accidental overdose. I don't think I'd ever really use this recreationally much, but the psychedelic effects from my use before were nice lol.

melatonin (5mg) and valerian root combo puts me in a coma lol
So does 50mg benadryl...but the valerian puts your mind in a "sleep environment" and melatonin actually induces sleep. Melatonin is the hormone that is released by your body to make you sleepy when darkness occurs (closing eyes, night time, etc). Every wonder when you were in school and the teacher turned the lights off you got more tired? Melatonin
So yea val and mel is a great stack

valerian root also works on the same pathways as benzos like Xanex and Valium work on- it is not intoxicating(have used both to great extent) like eithero f thos drugs- merley works on the same pathways
I take 2 in the day and two at night as I suffer from anxiety- works well- I dont take xanex anymore- abused the hell out of em- this stuff works
