What's a Psychedelic?

If you're wanting to go the next step up from weed here's a few things on psychedelics. Psychedelics are potent chemicals that can alter a person’s perception and mood. Some of the most common psychedelic plants are found in the Amazon and the Himalayas. The term “psychedelics” was first used in 1957 to describe drugs that can affect the mind. In the last decade, scientists have begun referring to these compounds as “entheogens.” The psychedelics people use are:

  • Mushrooms
  • LSD
  • MDMA (Molly)
  • DMT (dimethyltryptamine)
  • Mascaline
  • Ayahuasca

Are They Safe?

There have been years of people using these different compounds. Their potential medical benefits were widely acknowledged during the 1950s and 1960s. The introduction of the Controlled Substances Act in 1970 halted the research on psychedelics, which became known as the War on Drugs. However, studies on these compounds are slowly returning to the surface, and they're exploring the various ways they can help heal various illnesses. The reintroduction of the Controlled Substances Act in 1971 halted the progress of psychedelic research. It led to the downfall of the compounds' reputation. There has been plenty of research today about how these compounds and plants can help people with some pretty major health issues.

Are These Safe?

If you plan on taking a psychedelic, remember to not put yourself in a bad situation. Stay in comfortable surroundings for the trip. Bad trips are really unpleasant and nobody wants to have that. Know where you're getting your product as well. The word "lace" is a real thing and can be extremely dangerous. Be careful and have fun.
