Trippin’ at the GNC

Another gonzo-product review from Seth Stevenson, “Trippin’ at the GNC,” tells the tale of Stevenson’s experiences with supposedly psychoactive over the counter supplements. His greatest success was with St. John’s Wart:

It was not unlike a cocaine high (er, I’m told). That is, a surprise cocaine high that strikes at random. I’d be in a meeting with my boss and suddenly I was Robin Williams circa 1980.

Slate: Trippin’ at the GNC

I didn’t have much luck with St. John’s Wart, but unlike Stevenson I find kava tea relaxing. And although he doesn’t mention them, B vitamins give me a hell of a buzz and horrible diarrhea. What are your favorite herbs and supplements?

Paxil and Sleeping Pills Reviewed by an L.L. Bean Version of Hunter S. Thompson

Two of the most entertaining articles I’ve read online recently are Seth Stevenson’s Paxil and over the counter sleeping pill reviews. Stevenson recklessly indulges in these socially acceptable drugs like an L.L. Bean version of Hunter S. Thompson, the results are sometimes scary but always funny.
