When it comes to putting weird things in my body, I'm the resident guinea pig of Supercompressor. Hell, I've spent a week on a Nuvigil, smoked Polynesian sedatives, snorted powdered alcohol—oh, and I f**ked a robot once. Naturally, one has to wonder how I sleep at night, after spending my days pumping drugs into my body. The answer? You guessed it: even more drugs.
Since I'm vehemently opposed to loading my supple bod with real drugs like Nyquil, Ambien (save for said experiments), or really anything else that could prompt night-terrors and/or sleep-eating, I decided to spend a week trying out herbal remedies. My nights, and resulting days, were...interesting. These are my findings.
(For once, feel free to try these at home.)
