The Ultimate Psychoactive Plants Guide

Finding Psychoactive Plants (and Hallucinogenic Plants)

Plants are the earliest form of life on Earth, and have contributed to the foundation of human evolution and overall development. People have turned to plants for all sorts of survival needs, and plants have never let us down! Some people, however, have realized that some plants are a little more than sustenance. The truth is, some plants are awesome in psychoactive powers. Some plants are even proudly hallucinogenic! These plants produce or are composed of substances that alter the mind and state of consciousness.

Most people do not realize there are very common psychoactive plants that could be right in their own backyard. A substance like DMT (N,N-Dimethyltryptamine), for example, is present in many plants and animals; and can be found in nearly all corners of the globe. Another great example, psilocybin (or magic mushrooms), can be found anywhere cows can be found! That said...what are the best psychoactive herbs of the world and where can they be found?

List of Psychoactive Plants That Get You High And Where to Find Them

Although there is a rather extensive list of psychoactive plants, fungi, barks, and other botanicals on this Earth, a few of them stand out as very profound for getting high. They are listed in alphabetical order.

Agara (Galbulimima belgraveana)

Agara bark are commonly used to produce intoxicating and/or hallucinogenic effects. In low doses, the bark and leaves are boiled with a little Homalomena to create an intoxicating tea. However, in higher doses, the 28 alkaloids present will create intense visions and hallucinations which have been used in ancient times as divinations as to "which men and animals need to be killed" and for this reason, it is generally considered to be dangerous in high doses; especially considering these high doses can also produce delirium.

Where to find it: Native to Papua.

Belladonna (Atropa belladonna L.)

Also known as Deadly Nightshade, Belladonna is well known to be psychoactive. Too much of the substance is in fact considered to be too toxic and dangerous. However, many reports discuss the entire plant containing psychoactive constituents, including alkaloids which induce hallucinations. The main psychoactive alkaloid being hyoscyamine, however, scopolamine and other tropane alkaloids are present as well. Belladonna is still used today in many important medicinal drugs.

Where to find it: Belladonna is native to Europe, Western Asia and North Africa.

Common Reeds (Phragmites australis) & Reed Grass (Phalaris arundinacea L.)

Common Reeds have been used throughout ancient times all the way up to modern ceremonial, medicinal and recreational purposes. Because the roots contain the psychedelic and vision-inducing alkaloids N, N-DMT, 5-MEO DMT, and a couple others, they are frequently used for divination, as well as for hallucinations. Typically about 25 to 55 grams of the roots are boiled along with 2-4 grams of whole seeds of Peganum harmala and the reeds are consumed as a drink. However, there are other recipes for simply extracting DMT from the reeds.

Similarly, Reed Grass is very psychoactive and gaining popularity in recent times. Reed Grass is extremely high in DMT content and available in very common places in a lot of regions around the world. It is extremely easy to locate and gather, and just as easy to use. Typically, an extract is created using the leaves. The extract is then combined with Peganum harmala, and visionary effects are produced. It also provides an intoxicating effect similar to being drunk from alcohol. Sometimes it is used as a substitute for Ayahuasca (magic cactus native to Mexico and Latin and South America).

Where to find it: Common Reeds and Reed Grass are very accessible nearly anywhere in the world where water is present (growing on the coastlines and by river banks, near streams and in swamps and marshes). It is very common in North America, Australia, Asian, Europe and basically anywhere else in one form or another!

Datura (Datura metel L.; Devil's trumpet; Metel)

Datura has been known since early Chinese culture to be a hallucinogenic plant. It was also popular in Arabian culture as a drug (beginning widespread use in the eleventh century). Datura is still used today as a recreational, ceremonial and generally intoxicating drug in Afghanistan, India, and Pakistan. It is also commonly used as an aphrodisiac in the East Indies. The powdered seeds are added to wine and other alcoholic beverages to increase the potency. It is also common to lace marijuana cigarettes or tobacco with the powdered seeds. Sometimes it is added to the betel chew mixture.

Where to find it: Found most prevalently in Southern and especially Southwestern China.

Kanna (Canna, Mesembryanthemum expansum L.; Sceletium tortuosum L.)

Dutch explorers were the first civilized culture to discover Kanna, and so found in a small Hottentots village in South Africa. It can be very uplifting and similar to taking a percocet in low doses, however, taking heavier doses, produces a powerful sedative effect. Heavy doses can augment reality and become vision-inducing. It promotes lucidity in dreaming. Kanna traditionally was smoked in ancient times. Modern times, however, allow for stronger Kanna experiences by use of up-to-date extraction techniques. Kanna is typically sold as a 10:1 or 20:1 extract, meaning the Kanna is more concentrated, providing for a stronger, more satisfying high.

Where to find it: Kanna (also sometimes known as Channa), is plentiful in South Africa, but can be imported as it remains legal in most countries and states.

Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa)

Kratom has been wildly perceived as an opium substitute. Its powerful alkaloid, Mitragynine, is primarily responsible for the psychoactive experiences users describe upon chewing, smoking or drinking a Kratom powder, extract or tea. Kratom has taken off in popularity in the United States, and for this reason has been banned by 7 different states. An updated list of the banned states can be found in the article: Is the DEA Banning Kratom in the United States.

Where to find it: Kratom is native to Southeast Asia, and has been most popular in Thailand and Malaysia.

Lion's Tale (Wild dagga; Leonitis leonurus L.)

Wild dagga is a powerful narcotic used heavily in ancient times. Typically the dried buds, along with the leaves, are ground up and/or rolled up and smoked. Sometimes, spliffs are made and the herb is mixed with tobacco. Lion's Tales has been regarded as a wonderful substitute for Cannabis, however, no scientific studies exist to date.

Where to find it: Lion's Tale is native to southern Africa.

Nutmeg (Myristica fragrans houtt)

Nutmeg is also known as the "narcotic fruit" in ancient cultures. It is sometimes used as a hashish or marijuana substitute (very common in Egypt). Nutmeg has also been used as a medicine, though it can be poisoning in higher quantities. Nutmeg has been used heavily in Western cultures where other drugs are restricted. One teaspoon is snuffed or taken orally at a time (for narcotic and recreational drug use purposes), however, it generally is reported to take much more to create a full intoxicating effect. Sometimes it is added to the "betel chew". The main active substance in Nutmeg responsible for its intoxicating effects is myristicine (an essential oil). It is important to remember that Nutmeg can be extremely toxic and dangerous in high doses and will disrupt normal body functions. It can cause extreme delirium in form of intense hallucinations. The hangover is tremendous, including severe headaches, vertigo and dizziness, along with a side of nausea.

Where to find it: Nutmeg is found on the Maluku Islands (Indonesia) and also in Malaysia, in heavy portions. It is also heavily present in the Caribbean, India and Tanzania.

Peyotillo (Pelecyphora aselliformis ehrenb.)

The Peyotillo cactus is used for divination and body-cleansing purposes; and possesses strong hallucinogenic properties. Typically the cactus flesh is eaten fresh or after it has been properly dried. This cactus possesses a number of alkaloids.

Where to find it: Unfortunately it remains illegal in the United States, but can be found still in the States, and is very common in Mexico and Latin and South American countries.

San Pedro (Trichocereus pachanoi Britt. et Rose)

The San Pedro cactus was commonly used by natives in all of South America, but has always been most common in the Andes mountains. The cactus is hallucinogenic and provides "intoxicating feelings." It was very commonly used in divination ceremonies, diagnosing diseases and to "become another identity" for a short period of time. The stems are sliced into short pieces and boiled in water. This process takes several hours and sometimes other plants are added to the brew. Most people do not realize that this cactus is 2 percent mescaline. It is illegal in the United States, but remains legal in other countries.

Where to find it: The cactus t is extremely popular in Peru, Ecuador, and Bolivia. It is present, however, in all of South America.

Thorn Apple (Jimsonweed; Datura stramonioum L.)

Datura stramonium was used by the Algonquin and many others. It was commonly an ingredient in "witchs' brews" in medieval times. It was an ingredient in many ceremonial rites. The roots of the Jimson weed is used in various ancient drinks which are considered hallucinogenic.

Where to find it: Jimsonweed is located all throughout the world, however, can most commonly be found in watery areas, where there are swamps, or marshes. It is also sometimes called "Jamestown Weed" as it was found in high quantities upon the establishment of Jamestown, Virginia.

Caution: Please remember, although some of these plants are easy to find, sometimes, they are still illegal to possess. Even when a plant is legal to possess, it can sometimes be illegal to synthesize or otherwise manufacture (including extracting certain substances) anything from the plant. Always check into your local and state laws (as well as federal, or national depending upon your country) before attempting to locate, synthesize, extract from, or buy online any of these above mentioned plants.

Buy Legal Drugs That Get You High Online

There are some people out there who used to try a lot of the legal drugs (like simon, the legal high guy) and post about their effectiveness; however, in recent years the number of bloggers willing to openly comment and write about their drug-using experiences online has greatly diminished. There are still some places you can find legitimate SWIM user experiences for legal drugs. Some forums like Drugs And Bad Ideas have good active users who regularly post about their experiences.

The most important part in buying legal drugs online, is buying from a reputable vendor. Buying from a reputable vendor online ensures two things: a) that the drugs will actually work as they are supposed to work; and b) the manufacturer of the drug can be trusted to only use natural, organic and safe ingredients. Pirate Botanicals is a great supplier of a lot of nootropics and other legal drugs that are safe, effective and can be trusted.
