From: Herbal Antivirals by Steven Harrod Buhner
To make things more complicated, one of the herbs constituents, oroxylin A is a strong P-glycoprotein inhibitor. P-glycoprotein is trongly present in the blood-brain barrier, the lining of the gi tract, renal tubular cells, capillary endothelial cells, and the blood-testes barrier. It reduces the amount of substances that cross over those bariers in order to protect what is on the other side. This is why berbine is mostly confined to the GI tract). P-glycoprotein inhibitors allow more of a substance to cross barriers that are high in P-glycoprotien. That means if you are taking skullcap, any substance take with it will end up in higher levels in the bloodstream, thus increasing its impacts in the system."
WARNING: I have not tried this; and this herb is a STRONG potentiator of many pharmaceuticals and other herbs. If you are on any type of medication for anything, and If you don't know what you're doing, consult a professional before messing with any herbal syngerist.
So, I'm curious, there's a number of strong herbal syngerists out there, that potentiate the thereapuetic/antiviral/etc effects of other herbs as well as pharmaceuticals; by way of inhibiting various metabolic pathways.
We're well aware of the effects of certain MAOI's on the hallucinatory experience
My question is has anyone experimented with other herbal syngerists, specifically in relation to their effects on the psilocybin experience.
