Hallucinogens: Definition, resources and types

The word hallucination is derived from the Latin and means “wandering in thought.” Hallucinogens are a composite material that distorts reality in the human mind and leads to the distortion of the sight, hearing and taste, the fact that gives the abuser a false feeling of going on trips that might last for hours.

We can distinguish between hallucinogens through the effects they cause, not through their chemical composition. They are generally of two sources:

Hallucinogens extracted from plants:

1.Miraculous mushroom
2.Mescaline: extracted from a cactus plant called “Peyote”. It distorts all the senses of its abuser.

Hallucinogens composed in laboratories, which are numerous and include:

1.LSD and Nexus
2.Ketamine Hydrochloride and Phencyclidine
3.Extasy or MDMA

The brain analyzes the effects received by the neurons so that the human can interact with it. However, under the effect of hallucinogens, the brain responds with everything around it, even the simple ones, which are not apparent to him when he is in his natural state and which swell to a large extent to cause hallucination.

The risks of physical effects associated with hallucinogens:
