6 Point Comments - It Cured Me

This is a wonderful plant for me. Make sure to buy organic and from companies that have good business practices. Some days, it seems to have more benefit then others. I noticed that when I stopped taking Rhodiola I had less confidence at work and in social settings. I have experimented with doses of ~5 grams containing (3% rosavins and 1% salidrosides), at this dose I notice some deleterious effects like mild restlessness and insomnia. Steangely, another brand of R. rosea has put me to sleep at about 3g dose.

Slight boost in stamina/energy with huge doses (1 tsp tincture 3x/day, 1:3 menstrum ratio). Shouldn’t be used at that dose for more than a month at a time.

1 Point Comments - It Made Me a Lot Worse

Sadly, because it made me a lot better at first. My friend calls it "the crack-cocaine plant" because it makes you feel cheerful, productive and energetic... and then precipitates PEM. It makes even some ordinary people describe a 'wired but tired' effect and I couldn't get a full night's sleep using it. This was before I had trouble sleeping at all. It also didn't work on me after two consecutive doses. Loses its effectiveness when your body runs out of resources.
