Dear visitor, this is a machine-translated article. It makes perfect sense in its original language (Czech), and is fully backed by independent scientific literature. The translation, though, is far from perfect and takes patience and imagination, if you decide to read it.

My subjective experience with large doses of ginseng

Psychic effects

In daily doses of 1-2 g of dried root, the effect was not able to distinguish from normal fluctuations in performance and mood. After consuming more than 20g of dried root (over 500ml of strong decoction ) within a 24-hour period, however, there was a completely unnoticed effect corresponding to my expectations of a cocaine trip, which I never did. Increased mental activation, increased courage and ingenuity, concentration to the point of rush thinking, disappearance of obsessive thoughts, boredom, blame, anxiety, improvement of short-term memory, resistance to distraction factors, and increased abstention. Suppression of the need for sleep with the possibility of falling asleep. Increased free control over attention, less anxiety from unpleasant or long-delayed tasks. Improving appetite, but reducing interest in food as a leak before the tasks. The effects of large doses slow down very slowly, they do not tend to go to opposite extremes. It is not a euphoric effect, rather an increase in mental tension, remotely similar to that of caffeine. Also increase aggression and naughtiness. In this latter, I probably agree with other researchers - for example, the lewis1983nar skeptic study indicates an increase in aggression in mice. I also saw an interesting publication that ginseng increases the assertiveness of another player in the ultimatum game (I can not find a reference for anything in the world).
