PSYCHEDELICS

ORIGIN OF PSYCHEDELIC DRUGS

The term psychedelic drugs is derived from the Greek words ψυχή (psyche, “soul, mind”) and δηλείν (delein, “to manifest”), hence “mind manifesting”, the implication being that psychedelics can develop unused potentials of the human mind.

Psychedelic drugs was discovered by Dr Albert Hofmann. Born on 11th of January 1906, in Baden, Switzerland and died on 29th April 2008(aged 102),  in Burg im Lei mental, Switzerland. He is known for the discovery of LSD-25, naming and synthesizing psilocin.

Dr Hofmann

While re-synthesizing LSD, he accidentally absorbed a small amount of the drug through his fingertips and discovered its powerful effects. Hofmann’s most famous discovery happened on April 16, 1943. He was researching the synthesis of a lysergic acid compound, LSD-25, when he inadvertently absorbed a bit through his fingertips.

Intrigued by the effect it had on his perception, Hofmann decided further exploration was warranted. Three days later, on April 19, he ingested 250 micro-grams of LSD, embarking on the first full-fledged acid trip. That day became known among LSD fans as “bicycle day” because Hofmann began experiencing the drug’s intense effects on his bicycle trip home from the lab.

What is Psychedelic Drugs

Psychedelics are a hallucinogenic class of psychoactive drug whose primary effect is to trigger non-ordinary states of consciousness and psychedelic experiences via serotonin 2A receptor agonism. This causes specific psychological, visual and auditory changes, and often a substantially altered state of consciousness. If you are you are looking to get some of this banging product . ⇒shopnow

Hallucinogen (Psychedelics)

Effects of Psychedelic Drugs

Researchers believe that hallucinogens alter the perceptions of users by acting on neural circuits in the brain, particularly in the prefrontal cortex 1, a region of the brain involved in perception, mood, and cognition. Whereas dissociative drugs are thought to disrupt glutamate transmitters in the brain, hallucinogens are believed to affect the neurotransmitter serotonin.

Short Term Effects

People who use hallucinogens can see things, hear things and feel sensations that seem to be very real, but do not in fact exist. These altered perceptions are known as hallucinations.

  • One problem for users of hallucinogens is the fact that the effects of the drug can be highly unpredictable. The amount ingested, plus the user’s personality, mood, surroundings, and expectations can all play a role in how the “trip” will go.
  • What hallucinogens can do is distort the user’s capacity to recognize reality, think rationally and communicate. In short, a drug-induced psychosis, and an unpredictable one.
  • Sometimes, the user will experience an enjoyable and mentally stimulating trip. Some report having a sense of heightened understanding. But, users can have a “bad trip,” that produces terrifying thoughts and feelings of anxiety and despair.

Short Term General Effects

  • While the effects can vary depending on the type of hallucinogen and dosage, there are some general short-term effects that most of these drugs share.

Sensory Effects

  • Hallucinations, including seeing, hearing, touching, or smelling things in a distorted way or perceiving things that do not exist.
  • Intensified feelings and sensory experiences (brighter colors, sharper sounds).
  • Mixed senses (“seeing” sounds or “hearing” colors).
  • Changes in sense or perception of time (time goes by slowly).

Physical Effects

  • Increased energy and heart rate.
  • Nausea.

Long Term Effects

  • One result of the repeated use of hallucinogens is the development of tolerance. Studies show that LSD users develop a high degree of tolerance for the drug very quickly. This means they have to take increasingly larger amounts to get the same effects.
  • Research indicates that if a user develops a tolerance to one drug in the hallucinogen class, he or she will also have a tolerance for other drugs in the same class. For example, if someone has developed a tolerance to LSD, they will also have a tolerance to psilocybin and mescaline.
  • They will not, however, have a tolerance to drugs that affect other neurotransmitter systems, such as amphetamines and marijuana.
  • Also, chronic users of hallucinogens typically do not experience any ​physical withdrawal symptoms when they cease use of drugs, unlike users who have become dependent on other drugs or alcohol.

Further more, there are two more serious long-term effects of hallucinogen use are persistent psychosis and flashbacks, otherwise known as hallucinogen persisting perception disorder (HPPD). Many times these conditions will occur together. You can shop some of the hallucinogenic products from our online store  ⇒now

Persistent Psychosis

  • Visual disturbances.
  • Disorganized thinking.
  • Paranioa.
  • Mood disturbances.

Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (Flashbacks)

  • Hallucinations.
  • Other visual disturbances (such as seeing halos or trails attached to moving objects).
  • Symptoms sometimes are mistaken for neurological disorders (such as stroke or brain tumor).
