I received a free sample of this, without asking which was great, thanks M&M! I tried it, adding the suggested 1/4th TSP amount to a glass of water. And I noticed after the normal amount of time, 30-45 minutes or so, in a situation where I could have forgotten about it so it wasn't placebo, that it did indeed give me a relaxed / drowsy feeling. Similar to Valerian and Chamomile (but less intense). Eventually I'll try it again with a doubled amount, perhaps a while before bedtime or a nap, to find out if it only makes me drowsy or if the relaxation aspect outweighs it and is enjoyable and makes me want to use more. In short, I think this is a nice product for those who want something to help them sleep, or those who want to help with relaxation. (Posted on 4/23/2016)
This extract is effective at producing relaxation, maybe too effective. At the recommended dose, I fall into a stuporous sleep. I noticed no aphrodisiac qualities as per the claims made elsewhere, nor any psychoactive properties whatsoever, just extreme relaxation. I suppose this would be helpful for anxiety. I did not perceive any hangover. Period of efficacy was maybe 90 minutes to 2 hours. (Posted on 3/24/2016)
I've tried lotus products before and got nothing from them. However, 2.5g of this extract in a cup of warm chamomile tea with 1/2 a bottle of orange extract (80% alcohol) made for a relaxing evening. (Posted on 2/27/2016)
I wasn't expecting much, but a reasonably large dose had a noticeable effect on my mood and made the country landscape outside my window very beautiful. In fact, this to increase my appreciation of the aesthetics for several days. I'm looking forward to trying more of this product in some other environments. (Posted on 2/20/2016)
Labor Day has come and gone, school is back in session, days are getting shorter, and Fall is on its way. There’s nothing better than a nice cup of tea when the weather starts to get chilly.
