I bought some bulk holy basil from Mountain Rose Herb and put it in capsules.  My hunter hubby was kind of stressed and I wanted to see if it helped me sleep through the night.  My husband woke up moaning about his neck and I had weird disturbing psychedelic dreams and felt kind of sluggish all day.  

Anyone figure out what the neck pain is all about?  Anyone else have wild dreams? Are these cleansing symptoms, overdose symptoms or what?

I haven't had any trouble taking 450 mg.  I only take it occasionally but even when I took it three nights in a row, no trouble.

It does make me sleepy.  

Is the pain you feel at the base of the skull or in the neck?  I wonder if it makes you sleep in a more "unconscious" state, similar to being passed out from alcohol, and then you sleep "wrong" and don't move around enough to keep your neck from getting sore.  

If it is pain at the base of the skull, then I'd be more concerned about an internal reaction to the herb.  

Try it as tea instead of taking it in capsule form!  Much more mild.

Thanks for the food for thought. I will try it as a tea if I get brave enough to take it again.
