Ok, I want to be clear, first and foremost, that I am not recommending any substance I may mention here.
I really just want thoughts and opinions. What do you think about the accessibility of legal highs? Whats legal in your area? Do you think there should be more or less restriction when it comes to these substances? And, what do you think about the (lack of) heath information, or viable studies on these substances?
I just recently realized that there is a synthetic cannabinoid. It has apparently been marketed as a "spice".. in different "herbal incence", and "spice blends". Well this chemical JWH-018, is said to stimulate the same receptor in the brain as THC. So if you smoke said "spice blends" they have been said to produce a high... incredibly similar to a marijuana high. I have very stern sources that claim this is very true. It's not only been said to produce a strong "marijuana like" high, that lasts for hours... But it apparently takes very little to do so.
... it's a MARIJUANA-BE :laugh:
A marijuana high, that will pass any drug test, can be fed-ex'd to most states legally... What do you think about that?
I stumbled upon Salvia Divinorum quite some time ago. It became more of "thing" in the United States in the early 90's. Originally it was found in Mexico, used in ritual by the Mezatec natives.
Salvia had always been used to produce hallucinogenic effects. Obviously as a spiritual aid in tribal rituals. But now, after an extraction of the chemical that produces the "high" was created. Salvia is sold reather candidly in headshops everywhere. With concentrations of the extract that go as high as 100x (or higher).
From what I hear.... salvia ingested in the higher concentrates has the most intense of, well, most any drug. It is an experience most people find displeasing and unpleasant... "it bends reality TOO much" -anonymous
Scary that something like that is so easy to access.
I have also heard of LSA,
******LSA (Lysergic Acid Amide)Quote:
Lysergic acid amide (LSA), a relative and precursor to lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), is found in the seeds of the Hawaiian baby woodrose (Argyreia nervosa) and morning glory (Ipomoea violacea), which can be crushed, eaten, or soaked and drunk to provide a 4 to 8 hour intoxication that is similar to that provided by LSD, though there are reportedly consistent qualitative and quantitative differences (Schultes and Hofmann, 1980).
This LSA is in Morning Glory and Hawaiian Baby Woodrose seeds. Common garden plants. Easy to access. And can produce a psychedelic trip.
How dangerous do you think this is?
Once again... none of these "legal highs" are recommended for human consumption.
