Hallucinogen Information

PCP

PCP was originally intended as an anesthetic, similar to Ketamine, but due to the unwanted effects and strength of the drug, many patients found it too unsettling and uncomfortable, even in a controlled environment.  Its street names can include: “Angel Dust” and “Rocket Fuel”.  PCP causes an extreme feeling of acceleration, hallucinations, and a disconnect from reality; because of these effects, it makes the user very dangerous and prone to violence.

Peyote

This substance is legal, but only for ceremonial purposes within the Native American Church.  Peyote causes deep hallucinations and contains the purest form of mescaline.  Many people argue that it is a recreational drug, but the Native Americans who use it religiously find that opinion and usage to be a perversion of the substance.

LSD

Also known as “Blotter”, “Acid”, or “Trips”, LSD is a hallucinogen created from a particular fungus which grows on rye plants.  It is very potent and even a tiny dose can have serious effects.  Like other hallucinogens, LSD causes the user to see shapes and objects which don’t exist, walls and other flat surfaces appear to drip like wet paint, and the user experiences a feeling of floating and loss of the perception of time.  Negative effects include: disorientation, nausea, seizures, weakness, and coordination problems.

Psilocybin/Mushrooms

Magic Mushrooms or “Shrooms” are the common names for mushrooms which contain the chemical psilocybin.  They are classified as a Schedule I substance, since they have a high potential for abuse and misuse, and thus far have no recognized medical application.  Euphoria and connection are the desired effects, but like other hallucinogens, their use can lead to panic, psychosis, paranoia, and changes in personality.

Some magic mushrooms can cause fatal liver damage, if the user takes the wrong kind.  Abuse of psilocybin, like other hallucinogens, can lead to schizophrenia or other serious mental issues.
