It took me awhile to get used to its taste and smell, but I’m actually glad I switched from melatonin too Valerian Root. Not only does it consistently knock me on my ass at the same dosage every night for a solid six hours, but the dreams are much more pleasant than the ones melatonin causes. With Valerian Root, my dreams are still extremely vivid, but they’re lucid and not the nightmares I’ve been used to for so long. The dreams are so vivid, it’s almost like I have a second life in a parallel universe.
Whatever weird dreams using melatonin causes, valerian root appears to raise that to the power of four. Imagine if you can that Rick Riordan, Stephen King, Brandon Sanderson, and Neil Gaiman wrote an epic fantasy series together.
