5 Hallucinogenic Drugs In Your House.

Updated on May 11, 2016

WARNING:

THIS ARTICLE DOES NOT ENCOURAGE ANY EXPERIMENTAL USE WITH ANY OF THE SUBSTANCES LISTED. THESE SUBSTANCES ARE POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS, AND IN SOME CASES, LETHAL. PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO INDUCE/INGEST ANY OF THE SUBSTANCES LISTED FOR HALLUCINOGENIC EFFECTS.

1. Nutmeg

Nutmeg is surprisingly, an intense hallucinogenic drug. Although to many it might seem like an innocent food flavoring in your cupboard, it is a potential drug. It has intense hallucinogenic properties that can last as long as 24 hours - 96 hours (4 days). The main hallucinogenic compound in nutmeg is myristicin, which breaks down into the liver into MMDA, a drug of the amphetamine class and a known psychedelic, which makes up about 1.3% of raw nutmeg. Although myristicin is the main compound, it is not the only one. It works with a whole lot of other compounds in nutmeg, such as elemicin and safrole. As little as 3/4 a spoon can get you high. Research found that the effects of nutmeg could be due to the breakdown of myristicin.

Before you try this though, which is not recommended, you should know that the effects include nausea, vomiting, flushing, elevated heart rate, euphoria, a dry mouth, and, the whole reason why people take it, hallucinations. I already said, this can last 24 hours - 96 hours (4 days). People have also reported having vision, balance and hearing problems lasting for a week after ingestion. I'm sorry, but i've changed your perspective of nutmeg. You'll probably think of nutmeg as the "boogie monster" now. Sorry.

2. Rye Bread/Grain

Rye grain is occasionally infected with the ergot fungus, which is is used in the synthesizing of LSD. It is actually a disease caused by fungi Cleviceps ergot. The disease appears as a blackish-purple club shaped growth (known as head of ergot) on the tops of grain seeds. It has a rough surface and may be as much as four times as large as the grain kernel it replaces. The ideal condition for ergot contamination is wet and cool spring.

Before you try this too, you should also know that this causes psychosis, and more gangrenous sores, and as well as nutmeg, has many unpleasant side effects.

3. Stilton Cheese

Stilton cheese is not a potential hallucinogenic drug too. It's a ""drug"" that provokes dreams. The thing is, it won't let you have a bad trip/nightmare as it contains tryptophan, a bio-chemical also found in chicken that chases bad dreams and enhances mood. As little as 20 grams can make you trip. In 2005, a British Cheese Board study revealed that ingesting 20 grams of Stilton cheese could lead to wacky, nonsensical visions. The 75 percent of the male and 85 percent of the female participants reported seeing odd images such as vegetarian crocodiles and sentient toys not unlike Akira.

4.Mulberries

Taking large amounts of mulberries can cause mild hallucinations. Although this seems pretty fun, there is a downside to it. Mulberries are also laxatives, so if you take large amounts to get high, you're gonna have to do it on the best place to trip on weird stuff: the toilet. It aslo has many unpleasant effects to it, besides having to spend lots of time on the toilet with mild hallucinations.

5. Coffee

Coffee is so widely used that everybody forgets it's a drug. Adults, on average ingest about 83 percent of coffee in the U.S. So that's only 3 cups, an innocent dosage. Then, coffee can really be a hallucinogenic drug too. As little as 7 cups of coffee can make you trip for hours. Although this now really seems like a joke, 7 cups of coffee all at once can't be good for your heart, and your brain. I'm pretty sure you would crash after that. On top of that, to make it more likely to be hallucinogenic, research found that you'd have to be stressed. So if ever you find yourself drinking 10 cups of coffee for some reason, and on the 8th one a monster emerges from your cup trying to eat you, you know why.

So next time you're broke and need a hallucinogenic pick-me-up, here are some cheap alternatives you may NOT want to try.

      Throughout history people have gotten high and not known the reason. This article can explain witch craft in puritan America and Biblical accounts of visions. It may even explain the vision of Muhammad (PBUH).
