My pet lizard has tried a few "herbal highs" in the past most, of them actually having BZP and other piprazines in which give really nasty hangover like effects, which prompted the Lizard to feel extremely angry at the marketing term "herbal".
However the Lizard has been taking a product called Red Rockets for some time now with impressive effects-and some slight unwanted side effects- but these may possibly be accentuated due to the lizards weight, metabolism etc.
First i will list the ingredients that they have:
Sida Cordifolia extract, Kola Nut, piperine blend
They come in packs of three and the Lizard usually has 6-9 pills over the course of the night (over the recommended dosage the lizard may add but only by 3 pills)
The Lizard has 3 to begin then when effects start to manifest another 3.
The Lizard would now like to list the effects both positive and negative.
Positive effects include, nice body buzz from head to toe which feels like little tingles of electricity all over. Conversations in general are just amazing so sociability increases. Speedy feeling and increased clarity in vision (to begin with). Music appreciation increased. Alcohol effects seem to not be felt at all (Lizard would ask you to remember this as well it could be a positive or a negative), keeps lizard energised and up all night.
Negative effects include, slight issues with urination although it is still easily possible, Lizard experiences as do other Lizards, Lizard penis shrinkage. Gurning. Dry mouth. Hunger is not an issue and will continue not to be well into the next day. Insominia (although Lizard finds it more pronounced for him than the other Lizards.
On a side note Lizard would reccomend smoking some Canabis during the early hours come down, as this seems to have great synergy with the other effects, and usually sends body into a blissfull euphoria while mind remains entirely clear.
Lizard thought he would share these as they do work for him. Any questions just ask and remember that these effects are specific to the lizard and some other lizards he knows- they may be more prounouced or weaker depending on how the Lizard is made
When looking up Piperine blend on Wiki i found this (although not entirely sure it is correct).
Piperine is the alkaloid responsible for the pungency of black pepper and long pepper, along with chavicine (an isomer of piperine). It has also been used in some forms of traditional medicine and as an insecticide.
Piperine has also been found to inhibit human CYP3A4 and P-Glycoprotein, enzymes important for the metabolism and transport of xenobiotics and metabolites.In animal studies, piperine also inhibited other enzymes important in drug metabolism.
Yes, this is true. Although the listing of piperine is often just a smoke screen. When piperazines became for sale in New Zealand, they where often not listed as ingredients. But instead piperine or pepper extract was listed. Producers claimed that piperazines came from pepper. Although this is not true, it did keep governments from scrutinizing piperazines for quite some years.
