Some people drain their energy to fight for the legalization of cannabis, which is indeed prohibited because it can be intoxicating, in some countries. But, did you know, that cannabis is not the only plant that can make someone get the effects of hallucinations if consumed? There are still some other plants that have similar substances that cannabis has, or other substances that can provide hallucinatory effects. Some of them can be owned and consumed legally. However, if you want to consume one of them for your addiction treatment, we suggest you try ayahuasca tea.
Here are 5 plants that can make people hallucinate:
1. Hawaiian Baby Woodrose
This vine was originally found in South Asia but has now grown in various parts of the world. Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, also known as Elephant Creeper, has seeds that contain hallucinogenic substances.
This plant that reaches 31 feet in height is completely legal. However, LSA extraction from seeds is illegal for consumption. LSA, or lysergic acid amide, is a precursor to LSD. Both have similar chemical structures and produce similar psychedelic effects.
Ayahuasca from the Amazon rainforest contains MAOI, a fairly powerful anti-depressant, which can only be consumed by prescription for those suffering from acute depression.
This plant is usually brewed and drunk to optimize its psychedelic properties.
In Peru, Ayahuasca is used in religious sacrament ceremonies. In the United States, this vine is legal. However, drinks that contain this substance is illegal in most countries.
3. Peruvian Torch Cactus
The Peruvian Torch Cactus grows in the Andrean desert and is known for its psychedelic alkaloids. Cactus is a high-quality mescaline material.
Mescaline distorts the vision of those who wear it, in particular reinforcing intense patterns to produce a kaleidoscope effect.
Wormwood is a perennial herb made with basic ingredients of pale yellow flowers. When in full bloom, the flowers can be dried and consumed as a pain reliever. While wormwood oil is a heart stimulant too.
However, wormwood is now known to be a poisonous plant that should not be consumed excessively.
5. Dream Herb
Dream Herb or Calea zacatechichi is a plant from Mexico that is rumored to make people who consume it more detailed remembering dreams and dreaming more often.
This plant is legal to own and sell.
