The comedown can be brutal tho.  But wait, what's this?

 

New research shows MDMA can be comedown-free

 

By Devyn White for MixMag

 

9/23/19

 

 

 

MDMA can apparently be comedown-free, research says, producing an “afterglow” instead of a severe mood drop caused by a lack of serotonin.

 

Dr. Ben Sessa, a Bristol-based addictions psychiatrist, MDMA psychotherapist and psychedelic researcher, states that with medical MDMA use, there is no “post-dosing mood drop” making the well-known dreadful comedown “an artefact of sleep loss, excessive exercise and concomitant drug use.”

 

Earlier this year, Dr. Sessa published a research study that took place at the Imperial College London, where he began clinical trials for the treatment of alcoholism through the use of MDMA-assisted therapy. The researchers said they would use the study as a jumping-off point for further trials, and to devise additional studies using a placebo drug to see if the MDMA actually has an effect.

 

Best dosing recreationally:

T=0: 125mg
T+2 hours: 60mg
T+4 hours: 30mg
T+6 hours: 15mg
T+8 hours: get cab home

Gives optimal positive mood effects & also safer; with reduced temp & BP risks.
People who understand MDMA know:
a) Never start >125mg
b) Halve dose every 2 hours

Totally, those sound like very responsible levels based on my own experience

 

Recommend under 100 mg for first dosers

 

For recreational max dose go per body weight. So 150 lbs = 150mg . This is a high dose and you will be messed!!!  If not then you are doing it to frequently

 

This was proven to be "safe" in mice when administrated per body weight. Obviously you can go higher but I can report when taken to much all you get is sweaty and nauseated 

 

 

 

Also I second the idea of sleep loss as one the primary factors of the hangover effect of all drugs. It is a very important part that is often discounted in our thought process

 

Get a good rest on mushrooms and have woken up feeling fantastic. The worst hangover drug of all time without a doubt is alcohol  :blush:

Cannabis reclassified under UN treaties

 

The U.S. is signatory to a couple of international treaties that classify cannabis in schedules similar to those of the Controlled Substances Act.  Since the U.S. signed on to the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs, that treaty has been a roadblock (and a handy excuse for lawmakers) preventing federal legalization.  Just this month, though, cannabis was finally downgraded into a less severe category.  I need to look at the specifics, but this might make it easier to create a federal medical marijuana law. 

 

Now we just need the political will to do it, which has always been difficult because it's hard to get people to really make some noise in favor of cannabis en masse.  The good news is that a large majority of people in the U.S. do support decriminalization, in private at least.

 

It's worth noting that the U.S. voted in favor of this reclassification.

 

 

 

The United Nations Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) has voted to remove cannabis from Schedule IV of the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs. Schedule IV substances are considered dangerous and addictive according to the UN’s system. Schedule IV is actually a subset of Schedule I controlled drugs — rated as the most dangerous of these.

 

The December 2, 2020 vote came after the CND—which comprises 53 states—took on board World Health Organization recommendations made two years ago regarding cannabis and its derivatives. These recommendations, which recognized the potential therapeutic effects of marijuana were that:

  • Whole-plant marijuana and cannabis resin should be removed from Schedule IV, but kept in Schedule I.
  • Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and its isomers should be completely removed from a separate 1971 drug treaty and instead added to Schedule I of the 1961 convention.
  • Cannabidiol and CBD-focused preparations containing no more than 0.2 percent THC should not be "under international control" at all.

The fact that the CND is acting on and formalising WHO recommendation couldn’t be bigger in terms of endorsements for the comparative safety of cannabis, but the drug is still staying in the “dangerous” category, just ranking slightly lower in terms of the harm it can cause. Impossible as it sounds, until now marijuana was actually rated as more dangerous than morphine and fentanyl.

Feels like we missed a gigantic I told you so up here after a few years of legalization when all the nay sayers predictions of doom failed to appear. Canadians were supposed to be getting banned on mass when trying to enter the U.S. DUI were going to skyrocket and all these automobile accidents were supposed to happen. The list goes on and on that came from the nay Sayers and NONE of it came true. The clocked turned over and it was just a bunch of stoners patiently waiting in line for their first bit of legally purchased bud. There wasn't this explosion of users looking to catch a buzz, most people had made their minds up on whether or not they liked it before legalization. There was however an uptick in older folk looking for some pain relief. Seems like everyone's mom or dad has some pills or got a couple from a friend
