Snuff and Dreams

Has anyone else noticed vivid, bizarre dreams after using snuff heavily before bed? Lately I've been using Gawith's Kendall Brown in large quantities before going to sleep and leaving most of it in my nose to enjoy that wonderful scent as I drift off. It's been giving me some really wild dreams! I also usually wake up around 3AM and take another couple of pinches before going back to sleep.

I love it, really neat side-effect.

  • Is the 3AM snuff to see if the dream will start where it left off?
    I have been doing nightcaps of snuff and haven't noticed any changes but I rarely remember a dream (has to be really good)
  • The only effect I notice if I use snuff heavily before bed is an extremely sore throat when I wake up.
  • This used to happen to me when I was on the patch. i don't notice it with snuff though.

    Haha nah, I just always seem to wake up at that time and think to myself "well I'm up now, why not?"
  • @horus92 I was wondering if you were going to catch that. If I wake in the night I will do something myself (snuff, raid the fridge, etc...)

    Mugwort is great for dreams. That weed is everywhere.

  • Snuff before bed along with ZMA or even just Zinc will give you some great sleep with VERY Vivid Dreams :D
  • Ya know, it is so weird that you posted this. I have been having some really strange, vivid dreams lately and I did not connect the two. Odd!!!
  • Yeah, let's see, last night I had to run away from home because every surface was covered with stinkbugs, and I somehow entered an alternate universe where I was inside a strange D&D-type video game as well as living in the "real world" simultaneously, that's about all I can remember. Before I woke up some dwarf from the village in the game made me some magic boots, the dwarf was 5,000 years old. It was truly trippy. It wasn't even as weird as normal because I didn't use the Kendall Brown, that snuff seems to do it to me the most, maybe because it's so coarse the nicotine is absorbed more evenly over a long period of time.
  • horus that's just my real life. Stop stealing from my life for your dreams.
  • No dreams but I've got into what seems a completely ingrained habit now of waking up for a pinch at least once a night, usually twice rarely more. It's not a problem it just happens. Whats ZMA? I like dreams and hardly ever remember them.

    I don't remember my dreams either (I suspect they are so fucked up my brain has to hide them from me to keep me sane)
    If snuff helped me to have vivid dreams I could remember I'd be doing a hell of alot more of it.
  • It would happen when I was smoking a LOT of strong RYO especially.

    I do get dreams where I'm in some sort of shop and find some cool sounding new snuffs, but then am bummed out when I wake up and realize they don't exist.
  • Evenings where I get an order of new snuff and go on a binge, I go to bed with a bunch of nicotine and have really funky dreams. Some so weird that I wake up wondering if I'm really awake. :)

    @Abraxas ZMA is a combination of two minerals, zinc and magnesium, and then vitamin B6, they are combined at a certain ratio into a pill. It is used by athletes and weightlifters because it can help with sleep and also increases testosterone.

    Here is an article about zinc and men (testosterone):

    Here are some reads on ZMA and vivid dreams:

    How do you know it has to be really good? :P
    not noticed this before, though the most nicotine i had at bedtime was a snus pouch i left in. i woke up to find a brow stain on the sheet (head height, snus you filthy animals), but no sign of the little tobacco teabag. anywhere. 24hr later, still havent found it.
  • Well, she was... I guess you might have an idea (laughing)
    @Firestarter0 not to be funny but you may have chewed it and swallowed it. I have read that we swallow flies and such in our sleep. The cough that might wake you up just might be something other than congestion
  • What gives me the worst dreams is physical discomfort. Nicotine has been swirling around in me for.oh, 40 years so I couldn't tell if that were the culprit. The only dreams I REMEMBER involve women. I apperently talk alot then. Just this morning the wife asked what movie I was making. Huh?
    But Nic is classified variously, but firstly as a stimulant, which can affect dreams.
  • Maybe he uses Snuff and that is what he sprinkles...

  • @basement_shaman, what is this mugwort? what does it do?

  • @tommybegley this stuff grows wild in any soil
    Mugwort has been known for ages as a reliable dream enhancing plant. I have also had good results with this mild herb that is a close relative of wormwood and has a long history of medicinal use.


    In the West, mugwort was historically associated with the Greek goddess Artemis and the moon, perhaps because it stimulates blood circulation and was used chiefly to aid painful and irregular menstruation.

    Of course, Artemis is one of the Greek Gods who was known to send divine dreams. In other words, mugwort, dreams and the Moon are all bundled together in an aromatic and cosmic smudge stick.

    I recommend picking fresh mugwort consciously and ritualistically and placing it close to the bed, or even under your pillow before bed. Also try burning some mugwort as incense (and even smoking it – very pleasant), which can make bedtime into a ritual that will support more dream remembrance.

    Indeed. Remeber the Greek word for moon is menses, and the lunar cycle and the menstrual cycle are roughly the same period of time. It not surprising that they would have linked the herb to the moon.

  • Wow, what does it look like? and when would it be best picked?
  • Ya that's funny I was just telling my friend, whenever I take large amounts of snuff right as I'm going to bed, I will have a dream where I end up getting so irate with one of the characters in the dream, ill Instantly wake up, just furious hahah
  • Only noticed two things that give me dreams. Cheese and booze. When I'm smoking cannabis regularly though, I don't have any dreams, which I prefer because my dreams are always f*cked up anxiety-filled nightmares.
  • Wow, what does it look like? and when would it be best picked?
    It grows like a weed here in the south of England. Usually grows to about waist height or higher, a bit like an elongated pyramid in overall shape. In a block of foliage it is easy to miss it when it is calm, but if there is a slight breeze then the silver undersides of the leaves will show, then it's easy to spot. You can pick it any time, although I usually pick it around July since that just happens to be when I have time for that kind of thing. Just go for the young, fresh growth.

    The best thing is to go out with someone who already knows what they are looking for...no risk of a mis-identification then. Or you can just buy some online, but fresh is best!
  • ...I wonder if you could powder it and add it to snuff...

    I am fond of wormwood too, but you gotta be really careful with that stuff!
  • the cafe 11 still causes me to have vivid dreams for some reason.
  • I dont know if it was caused by snuff but I had a very short dream the other night[only a few seconds really].The dream was simply taking a pinch of snuff,raising it to my nose and inhaling,I dont know what this dream snuff was but I got overwhealmed at how magnificent it was and immediately woke and grabbed for the real thing.The real thing was good,but not as good as the dream snuff...it was like I had just sniffed the holy grail of snuffs :-O
