Cautions about Mugwort for lucid dreaming
Mugwort and lucid dreaming is not well-studied scientifically, so unless you are taking a pre-prepared supplement manufactured by a reputable company, you should be very cautious about its use. If you are expert at growing and using your own herbal remedies that is one thing, but Mugwort is not something to just start growing and making your own supplements, tea, or herbal mixture for smoking. There is just not enough guidance available to make this a DIY project unless you are quite expert at this type of thing.
The above caution also holds for using products in a way that is different from how they were designed, such as taking apart a capsule and making tea, or smoking tea leaves. The safest way to use wormwood herb is to buy it pre-made and only use it in the way(s) that that mixture was intended. And even then, we suggest you start taking mugwort for lucid dreams in the smallest dose listed, given that you want to be sure you are not sensitive to this herbal, and you want to see if you can get your desired effect with only a little of this active ingredient.
And of course, since there are plenty of choices as far as lucid dreaming supplements beyond just this one, do not continue with this one if it interferes with your sleep too much, or you experience any side effects at all. Make sure your doctor has cleared you to take this lucid dreaming supplement, especially if you are on any prescription medications or have any pre-existing medical conditions. Mugwort for lucid dreams is not known to have too many side effects, but any medication or medical condition can react negatively to a new supplement, even a safe and natural one like this. Also, as we mentioned above, if you are going top be smoking mugwort for lucid dreaming make sure you get advice about how the smoke will affect you beyond the active ingredient effects.
