Simon’s Legal Highs

Simon’s list of the best legal highs

 

Humanity has been experimenting with psychoactive substances since the beginning of time.

When you hear the word “drug” you think of something illegal although it should not necessarily be the case.

There are plenty of legal drugs out there.

Just take a look at this list of the best legal drugs to change your mind.
Many of them are easily available in your grocery store, online or you can pick them yourself if it’s the right season.

If you are only here for the list of the top legal highs and places to buy them, please skip ahead by clicking on the link.

 

 

What are legal highs, legal drugs, legal intoxicants?

 

Legal highs (a.k.a legal intoxicants, legal drugs) are intoxicating plants, chemicals, which are legal to use and will get you “high” (intoxicated, altered state of mind).

In this guide I will focus on the best plants, plant extracts and mixtures.
These are often called ethnobotanicals.

The most commonly used intoxicants are alcohol and tobacco.
But many others are used, including entheogens (sacred plants) used by indigenous cultures and modern research chemicals, intoxicating substances that have not yet been defined as illegal.

Just about everyone has had experiences with drugs one way or another (alcohol, coffee, prescription pills or, yes even tea is a drug).

This list includes the best legal psychoactive plants, plant extracts and more known to man.

All of the legal highs in the list are legal to use in most countries, but they are not as well known and widespread as the standard legal drugs (tobacco, alcohol, coffee, tea, marijuana), which are not included.

About tobacco: If you smoke tobacco know that you can save 50 % per pack or more if you use a little trick and buy it online in duty-free shops. I’m surprised how few people know of this trick!

I have put together a guide and compared prices of packs of cigarettes in the US, Europe in brick&mortar stores and in duty-free e-commerce stores.

You can find it here: Simon’s Guide to buying Cigarettes, Tobacco Products online

 

 

What motivated me to compile the definitive list of the best legal highs that work

 

Personal reason


Please click on the drop down menu if you would like read my reasons for creating the biggest and most comprehensive legal high list online.

 

In short: Apart from the personal reasons (see below), my aim with this guide is to get as many people off illegal drugs and dangerous research chemicals by showcasing safer (and cheaper), legal, natural alternatives, which will get you just as high if not more.

 

I believe, that a lot of people will choose safer, natural, legal alternatives over illegal drugs and dangerous research chemicals if they get to know the alternatives.

 

So please don’t start using legal highs, any drugs, just because of this guide. That’s not my aim.

Objective

I remember as a teenager I tried out all legal highs I could get my hands on.

That was back in the day, and it was incredible difficult to find reliable information about them online.
I learned from my own mistakes, which can be very dangerous ( I nearly ended up in the hospital after eating way too much nutmeg).

That has been 8, 9 years ago.

It is somewhat better nowadays but still not easy to find safe legal highs online.

I decided to create this all encompassing, constantly updated list of the best legal highs available worldwide.

You will be surprised, that some of the legal highs mentioned here can be actually found in nearly every grocery store.

 

 

 

Marijuana is just as popular and well known as alcohol or coffee – which are not included in the list – so I decided to not to include it in the list.

However, due to popular demand I created a separate page about legal marijuana for people interested in buying marijuana seeds online.

 

Legal Disclaimer: I do not advocate consumption of legal highs, legal drugs, legal intoxicants. They can have adverse side effects and if you are allergic, or if you overdose you might even die.

Some of them are poisonous plants – nightshades- causing a dangerous state of delirium and should not be consumed under any circumstances.

If you are planning to consume any of the substances mentioned here consult your physician first and make sure you read about potential health effects and safe dosing.

I can not be held liable for your actions.

Some of the information presented here might be outdated or incorrect. Make sure, that if you are planning to try out any of the substances to research them yourself as well.

 

BEWARE, SCAM!:  Don’t buy pre-packaged legal highs (often advertised as legal buds, herbal incense, herbal potpourri). They are ineffective and overpriced, you are essentially paying for marketing and nothing else.

Or they are full of dangerous research chemicals and contaminants, which can just as easily kill you as it will get you high.

None of them have their ingredients listed on the package or online, which is a huge red flag.

More about research chemicals here: Research chemicals

 

Useful:

Learn how to make your own research chemical-free, herbal incense mixture for a fraction of the cost of brand name, herbal incense!

If you are buying the plants separately and make your own legal high mixture at home you can save a significant amount of money.

Legal highs and legal drugs

Best legal stimulants:

A separate page about legal energizers, stimulants, party pills.

 

Ephedra sinica

Dried ephedra sinica tea preparation.
Ephedra

Ephedra sinica (Mormon’s tea), has been used in Chinese traditional medicine for over 5000 years.

The plant is actually a small shrub prevalent in Asia and the Americas.

It is the best know and most popular legal stimulant.

Used to be marketed as legal Xtasy and it was the most popular weight loss supplement for years.

 

Effects

The active ingredient is ephedrine a strong stimulant, appetite suppressant with mood enhancing properties.

It increases focus and stamina (sometimes libido too in rare cases) + slight euphoria, extasy (MDMA) like buzz but not very strong.

 

Dosage

The dosage of Ephedrine is between 25 mg to 150 mg when used in a hospital setting (depends on age, gender, weight, height, illnesses etc…).

Use the following formula to calculate safe dosage:

(X grams) x (Y Ephedrine concentration) = Z

——————————————————–

X= grams of Ephedra or Ephedra extract

Y= Ephedrine concentration %

Z= your dose, Z should be between 25 – 150 mg (0,025 – 0,150 grams)

————————————————————–
Example:

Your Ephedra tea preparation has an Ehedrine concentration of 1% and you bought 200 grams.

200 g x 0.01 = 2 g

So, Z=2 g (2000 mg) , therefore your amount of Ephedra is enough for 13.3 strong doses for one person.

 

Or, you can use the following Ephedra dosage calculator.

 

Legal status

 Ephedra – legal status
 USA Ephedra tea preparation and extracts are legal to buy online,and to possess and use, but medications containing Ephedrine, Pseudoephedrine are strictly controlled, each state has different limits for these medications

If it’s out of stock try the Ephedra substitute Sida cordifolia.

Ephedra pills /shipped from the Netherlands/

If it’s out of stock try the Ephedra substitute Sida cordifolia.

 

Additional information

 

Sida cordifolia

On the picture is the orange flower of Sida cordifolia, a.k.a Country mallow.
Sida cordifolia, Country mallow

Sida cordifolia (country mallow, bala, heart-leaf ,sida, flannel weed) is a small shrub native to India.

However, country mallow has spread all over the world and can be found in most countries.

Country mallow is the best Ephedra substitute, which you can buy online.

It contains the same alkaloids as Ephedra.

Country mallow is much milder than Ephedra, to get the same effects you need much more (see dosage).

In certain countries Ephedra is illegal but County mallow is still legally bought and sold.

/Not to mention, because Ephedra is the most popular legal stimulant, it is often out of stock or overpriced, in that case Sida cordifolia can be a good alternative./

 

Effects

The effects are the same as that of Ephedra and any Ephedrine containing plants:

  • mood enhancing
  • enhancing concentration
  • increased alertness/focus
  • stimulating
  • amphetamine like effects

Just like Ephedra, this is not simply a caffeine alternative!

This is a genuine legal high that gets you “high” (high is described as amphetamine like by various trip reports).

Be careful, because it suppresses the effects of alcohol and you can easily overdrink yourself, resulting in alcohol poisoning.

 

Dosage

Country mallow is said to contain much less active ingredients than Ephedra (according to forum posts, could not find any concrete evidence supporting this).

However, the main active ingredient is ephedrine, therefore you can can calculate the dosage  the same way you would do it with Ephedra.

The dosage of ephedrine is between 25 mg to 150 mg when used in a hospital setting (depends on age, gender, weight, height, illnesses etc…).

Use the following formula:

(X grams) x  (Y Ephedrine concentration) = Z

——————————————————–

X= grams of Country mallow

Y= Ephedrine concentration of Country mallow in %

Z= your dose, Z should be between 25 – 150 mg (0,025 – 0,150 grams)

————————————————————–
Example:

Your Sida cordifolia has an Ehedrine concentration of 1% and you bought 200 grams.

200 g x 0.01 = 2 g

So, Z=2 g (2000 mg) , therefore your amount Sida cordifolia  is enough for 13.3 strong doses.

 

Use the Country mallow dosage calculator to calculate dosage.

 

Legal status

Sida cordifolia is only illegal in countries, which have a blanket ban against ephedrine containing plants. These are:

  • Canada
  • Croatia
  • Finland
  • Germany
  • Indonesia
  • Netherlands
  • Hungary
  • and a growing number of EU countries.

However, the law is very ambiguous, when it comes to Sida cordifolia, not to mention compared to Ephedra, Country mallow is practically unheard of.

There is very little, reliable information available online regarding Country mallow legality and the legal status of ephedrine containing plants (except Ephedra).

However a few Kratom vendors still claim they have Kratom for sale.
90% of these online stores are a SCAM!

Please be very careful if you decide to purchase Kratom from a US vendor (not advisable).

I tested 6 of them and all turned out to be scams (you can find them on the legal high shop blacklist).

Psilocybe cubensis is probably the best known of them all.  The main psychedelic compounds are  psilocybin and psilocin.

Psilocybin mushrooms are really potent ethnobotanicals and they can cause intensive visual and auditory hallucinations, a.k.a. “trips”.

Magic Truffles

A picture of a fresh magic truffle.
Magic truffle

Under certain circumstances, different strains of the Psilocybin family of mushrooms will not grow a fruiting body (a.k.a a mushroom) instead they develop and underground clump, a sclerotium (a.k.a a truffle).
The most well-know variety is the Philosopher’s stone (Psilocybe tampanensis). The main active ingredients are the same (psilocybin and psilocin), therefore the effects are very similar to the mushroom with some subtle differences. 
Because it is a truffle and not a mushroom this makes them legal in a some countries, where magic mushrooms are illegal.

Legality, legal status, laws pertaining  to magic mushroom, magic truffles and magic mushroom/truffle growth kits are very complex I have created a separate page with a breakdown country-by-country.

Ayahuasca

A prepared Ayahuasca brew. The strongest psychoactive herbal mixture known to man.
Ayahuasca

Ayahuasca is the mixture of various potent entheogens.

Most often this mixture includes Banisteriopsis caapi and Psychotria viridis but can include other plants as well, like Diplopterys cabrerana or Mimosa hostilis. The main active ingredient is DMT.

For any brew to be considered a genuine Ayahuasca brew it has to contain at least one DMT-containing plant and at least one MAOI inhibitor, otherwise it is not Ayahuasca.

 

Effects

During the psychedelic experience the most affected sense is vision.

Ayahuasca users describe their experiences as having long sequences of dream-like imagery. This can be translated to manifestations of spirit helpers, demons and deities, geometrical pattern and tigers, birds and reptiles.

After ingesting Ayhuasca people often believe that they can see events at a great distance, experience sensations of flying and even death.

The prepared Ayahausca causes strong nausea and/or diarrhea shortly after ingestion.

Dosage

You can find the info about the dosage and the ingredients in the Ayahuasca guide.

 

Legal status

US: Ayahuasca plants and preparations are legal, as they contain no scheduled chemicals.
However, brews made using DMT containing plants are illegal since DMT is a Schedule I drug.

Mimosa hostilis

A picture of some Mimosa hostilis inner root barks.
Mimosa hostilis root bark

Mimosa hostilis, (Jurema) is a drought-resistant shrub.

It has fern-like leafed branches and produces DMT in it’s root bark.

It is one of the ingredients of the Ayahuasca brew.

The active ingredient is DMT, a strong hallucinogenic, a well-know psychedelic substance.

DMT can produce powerful psychedelic experiences including intense visuals, euphoria and hallucinations.

DMT is generally not active orally unless it is combined with a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI).

San Pedro cactus

Fully grown San pedro cacti.
San pedro

Echinopsis pachanoi, San Pedro Cactus is well known among psychonauts.

It is a fast growing cactus from the Andes.

The best know psychoactive cactus. There are many more psychoactive cacti. San pedro is not the only one.

You can find a good collection psychoactive cacti here (including San pedro):

Mescaline cacti /shipped from the Netherlands,/

 

Effects

The active ingredient is mescaline, a strong hallucinogenic.

Users typically experience visual hallucinations and radically altered states of consciousness, often experienced as pleasurable and illuminating but occasionally is accompanied by feelings of anxiety or revulsion.

Other effects include: open and closed eye visualizations, euphoria, dream-like state, laughter and a psychedelic experience.

 

Dosage

When figuring dosages one must have several figures in hand. First, you must know the wet weight of your sample before and after cleaning/processing.

It is also very important to record the dry weight of the starting material prior to extraction or ingestion.

With a knowledge of these figures it will be a lot easier to predict present and future dosages, and help prevent overdoses or ( bad trips ).

Remember, don’t just consume so many inches of cactus just because you read it somewhere. A 12 inch section of 4 inch diameter Cactus is many times the volume of a 1 inch diameter piece. The total dry weight is the only standard of measurement that should be used.

The threshold dosage for mescaline is generally considered to be around 150 mg.

An ” average” working dose is around 300 mg. A 400 mg. dose has been described as an ” entheogenic all day lollipop .”

The maximum safe dosage is believed to be about 1000 mg. ( this amount varies widely according to individual tolerance, experience, frame of mind, setting )

  • LOW DOSE, 100 – 200 mg A mild buzz, to good trip with some visuals.
  • MODERATE DOSE, 200 – 300 mg Average dosage, strong visuals.
  • HIGH DOSE, 300 – 500 mg Intense visuals, ego dissociation possible.
  • EXTREME DOSE, 500 – 800 mg For experienced, competent explorers only.
  • MAXIMUM SAFE DOSE, 1000 mg Dangerous ground to tread on.
  • HIGHEST KNOWN DOSE, 1500 mg Mr. Death might be the ultimate discovery?

In Psychedelic Shamanism, author Jim DeKorne suggests the following dosages as good starting points for experimentation. ( remember, your mileage may vary )

“T. pachanoi 300 mg dose of mescaline contained in 100.0 grams of dry material. T. peruvianus 300 mg dose of mescaline contained in 37.5 grams of dry material. L. williamsii 300 mg dose of mescaline contained in 27.0 grams of dry material.”

300 to 500 mg of the sulfate salt is equivalent to 225 to 375 mg of the free base.

One source suggests that a good starting dosage for San Pedro is about 1 pound (about 450gm ), or about 45 gm dry. They also stated that a larger dosage would be much more desirable after mescaline content has been established.

Many people are disappointed with their first excursion into the Cactus wonder world because of taking an initially sub-standard dose.

It has been calculated that if a person takes a ineffective dose, the next dosage can be increased by a factor of 7 without pushing the range of toxicity. That is, if your first batch ingested was 20 grams and you felt no effect, you should be safely able to try 140 grams next time without ill effect.

My personal opinion is that this is a bit on the excessive side. Better to play it safe and work your way up slowly.

If you try to fly and fail, you will probably want to give it another shot.

However if you take an excessive amount and have a bad trip, it may scare you off of hallucinogens for life. Think about it before you decide how much to try.

Often times determining the approximate dosage of a section is rather difficult, especially if you don’t have a set of scales. To help you figure out how much weight you have for a given size section, here are some figures.

  • 1.5 – 2.0 inch diameter section = 1.0 ounces per inch of length
  • 2.0 – 2.5 inch diameter section = 1.5 ounces per inch of length.
  • 2.5 – 3.0 inch diameter section = 2.0 ounces per inch of length
  • 3.0 – 3.5 inch diameter section = 2.5 ounces per inch of length
  • 3.5 – 4.0 inch diameter section = 3.0 ounces per inch of length
  • 4.0 – 4.5 inch diameter section = 3.5 ounces per inch of length

One pound of fresh Tricocereus contains 3 ounces of fibrous core, 6 ounces of white tissue, and 6 ounces of green tissue, along with 1 ounce of exterior skin and spines.

Yopo

Roasted Yopo beans on a leaf.
Yopo beans

Anadenanthera colubrina and A. peregrina, a.k.a. Yopo is an entheogen used in healing ceremonies and rituals.

The seeds (Yopo beans) contain a wide variety of strong psychedelics.

 

Effects

The beans have been found to contain up to 7.4% bufotenin.

It also contains DMT.

Inhaling Yopo can cause considerable pain in nostrils (how natives consume Yopo). However, this pain usually subsides within minutes.

Physical effects include tingling and numbness throughout the body and an increased heart rate.

Hallucinatory effects follow as colors become more vivid and shapes appear to alter. The effects of Yopo intensify quickly but gradually fade.

Increased amounts of the substance induced may intensify and lengthen effects.

Dosage

  • use 1-4 seeds per person
  • heat seeds on low heat until they pop
  • separate the outer seed from the inner seed
  • the inner part of the seed is used
  • discard the outer seed shell
  • heat the remaining inner seed on low
  • stop heating when it is hard and crunchy
  • crush the seed (use a coffee grinder, mortar and pestle, etc.)
  • mix the following: 2 parts seed, 1 part lime or shell, and 1 part baking soda
  • add a few drops of water to form a paste
  • mix well and heat on low until material dries
  • crush dry material into a fine powder (use a coffee grinder, mortar and pestle, etc.)

Source: http://www.bluelight.org/vb/threads/468178-Yopo-Subthread-Dosage-and-Preparation

 

Legal status

Illegal in:

  • Louisiana

Yopo is a pretty much an unknown legal high.

Therefore there is no reliable information online about it’s legal status.

There are some forum posts online, here and there.

As with many unknown legal highs the prevailing opinion seems to be, that Yopo is pretty much legal everywhere because it is so unknown nobody ever tried to regulate it.

As a thumb rule the more less know a legal high is the less regulated it is.

Morning glory

Flowering blue Morning glory.
Morning glory

Morning glory is the common name for over 1,000 species of flowering plants with a varying level of toxicity in the family Convolvulaceae.

Many of the species are extremely toxic and you will die if you ingest them. Don’t go around start picking Morining glory, because even experts have difficulties identifying the various different species.  Buy it only from trusted, safe vendors.

Only for advanced legal high users.

 

Effects

The seeds of many species contain ergine also known as LSA -plant LSD-, a substance  with LSD-like effects.

It can cause very intensive hallucinations. The effects usually take 2-3 hours to peak.

 

Dosage

Oral Ipomoea violacea Seed Dosages:

  • Light 50 – 100 seeds 1.5 – 3 g
  • Common 100 – 250 seeds 3 – 6 g
  • Strong 250 – 400 seeds 6 – 10 g
  • Heavy 400 + seeds 10 + g

Onset : 30- 180 min
Duration : 4 – 10 hours
Normal After Effects : 2 – 24 hours
Please Note: Some individuals report lasting visuals and feeling off baseline for more than a day after taking moderate doses of morning glory seeds.

Argyreia nervosa is much  stronger than Ipomoea violacea!

Experienced users of entheogenic morning glory seeds usually start with low doses, later working up to higher amounts if a more intense effect is desired. The wise user will begin with no more than 4 or 5 seeds of Argyreia nervosa, or no more than 20-25 seeds of Ipomoea violacea. Seeds of Turbina corumbosa are about one fifth as potent as the seeds of Ipomoea violacea. In Mexico, I have seen doses of the true ololiuhqui seeds, Turbina corymbosa, measured as the quantity of seeds which will fill a bottle cap, and Wasson also reported this volumetric dosage aid in the Sierra Mazateca (Wasson 1963). Osmond found 60-100 seeds Turbina corymbosa seeds to be an active dose, though he chewed and ingested the whole seeds, rather than making a cold water infusion of ground seeds (Osmond 1955; see Note 11).

Skullcap

A flowering Scutellaria lateriflora, a.k.a. Skullcap.
Skullcap

Scutellaria, Skullcap is a genus of flowering plants in the mint family.

Skullcaps are common herbal remedies. They are used in traditional Chinese medicine.

Skullcap is the source of the Chinese medicine Huang Qin.
Native Americans used it to treat gynecological conditions.  It is widely available as a commercial product online. It is also used in Western herbalism to treat anxiety and muscle tension.

 

Effects

It is a common ingredient in herbal incense mixtures. Almost all of them contain it.

It is also available as a standalone herbal smoke. There appears to be no reliable scientific study done on it’s psychoactive properties.

The reviews online claim “weak” to “none at all” effects.

It makes a cheap,  easy-to-smoke, filler herb if you are making herbal mixture to smoke, or if you are making a tea out of stronger legal highs.

 

Dosage

I never had much luck with this. You probably need to make a ea out of a lot of it but I’m not sure how much.

I always used it as an easy-to-smoke (also good in tea) filler herb and nothing else. But it’s pretty good for that, no wonder almost all legal high mixtures have some in them.

As for the health benefits: I have no idea whether that’s true or not.

I will be researching this more and I will come back and write down my findings here.

Opium poppy seeds and opium poppy pods

Opium poppy seeds and dried pods.
Papaver soniferum pods and seeds

Papaver somniferum, a.k.a the opium poppy (not the California poppy!) is the source of many illegal and controlled substances like: morphine, codeine and morphine’s derivative heroin.

But some strains of the opium poppy remain staple food items in many countries and are available in grocery stores.

Poppy seeds and pods are often drunk as tea. The poppy seed tea is a light drug (legal in many countries).

However, the poppy pod tea is not to be trifled with and it is definitely not a light drug!

 

Effects

Poppy seed tea contains a mixture of chemicals but the main active ingredient is codeine and some residual opium and a small amount of morphine.

You can make a tea out of the seeds or out of dried pods (if they are legal and available in your country, poppy pod tea is stronger than poppy seed tea keep that in mind!).

The seed tea gives you a relaxing, mild, nice, euphoric high.

The pod tee is quite strong, narcotic, sedative, euphoric.

You will feel refreshed and happy.

As a strange side-effect many people notice an increased tolerance against cold weather.

If overdosed (especially, be careful with poppy pods) it can kill you by slowing-down breathing (similar to heroin OD), there is at least one reported case of fatal overdose.

 

Dosage

It is really hard to estimate dosage, because the potency of batches varies greatly.

Poppy seed tea:

Here is how I use poppy seed tea (28, male, 80 kg):

  • 1 liter milk, low fat 1.5 %
  • 4 big spoonful of natural, unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1 bag of ground poppy seed (without sugar) from the grocery store , 500 grams

Put everything in one glass container (I use an Oktoberfest beer mug, called Maß).
Get a hand mixer, mix it for 10 minutes on highest setting till it’s really foamy.
And it’s done , add honey if you have a sweet tooth (I always drink it without any kind of sweeten, it’s not bad on it’s own).

I usually eat the seeds too, or at least part of the ground seeds. I think eating the seeds is really important, otherwise you won’t get really high.

It peaks in 2 hours, lasts 4 hours from peak.

The potency of the poppy seeds varies greatly. Over the years this “cocktail” (using the same amount, same way of preparation) caused wildly different highs, from next-to-nothing to seriously messed up(felt like my breathing was slowing down to a dangerously low level and felt like passing out,close to OD).

It is impossible to predetermine the exact amount. Use the ladder method and consume it very slowly, that’s what I do all the time.

/As an extra precaution, I always keep two big Monster energy drinks around, so if it turns out to be too strong and I feel my breathing slowing down too much and feel like passing out I just drink one or two./

 

Poppy pod tea:

It is kind of like the seed tea but much stronger and the same applies here as well. It is impossible to predetermine the exact amount, because the potency of the pods varies greatly.

Be careful with pods, overdosing can lead to death.

According to Erowid the recommended dose is between:

  • Between 1 and 3 pods for new drinkers
  • 2-5 pods for experienced
  • 5+ pods for opiate addicts

 

Source: https://www.erowid.org/plants/poppy/poppy_info2.shtml

 

 

Just be careful, I would start with poppy seeds first.

Use the ladder method and consume it very slowly.

 

Legal status

Poppy seeds are available and legal to purchase worldwide.

Poppy pods are legal to purchase for decorative purposes  but if ingested you can get into trouble if you are caught.

It is a grey area in many countries.

It is illegal to buy and cultivate opium poppy seeds or pods in:

  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • Finland
  • Hungary

Cacao powder

Natural unsweetened cacao powder.
Cacao powder

Theobroma cacao, cacao powder also called cocoa solids or cacao powder is the natural, unsweetened -not the sugary cacao powder you probably drink, that  thing has less than 20%! of the real stuff and rest is sugar- mixture of many substances remaining after cocoa butter is extracted from cacao beans.

Effects

It has psychoactive effects, if taken in large amounts.

The main active ingredient is Theobromine. It’s a caffeine like stimulant and can cause a mild euphoria.

It also makes you urinate frequently and if overdosed will cause theobromine poisoning with many adverse effects.

 

Dosage

An optimal dosage to feel effects is two tablespoons of  natural, unsweetened cacao powder or more depending on your body weight.

Pets should not consume cacao powder under any condition in any quantity, it is lethal for them!

Blue lotus, Nymphaea caerulea

Flowering blue lotus, Nymphaea caerulea.
Blue lotus

Blue Lotus (Blue Egyptian water lilly) has been traditionally used as a recreational drug in Ancient Egypt 3000 B.C.

In Egypt the dried leaves of the blue lotus petals were soaked in wine to create a strong mixture, which causes euphoria.

Blue lotus is often used as an additive to Martini (soaking the petals up to 3 weeks, then filtering) or often consumed as a tea.

Blue lotus is also used in the production of perfumes.

 

Effects

The main active ingredients are the alkaloids nuciferine and aporphine.  These alkaloids have sedative effects and they cause euphoria.

The effects are likened to the effects of alcohol and opium.

Most people consume a combination of dried leaves and extract.

Alcohol extraction works the best.

 

Dosage

The best way to consume blue lotus is to create lotus wine (alcohol extraction works best, Egyptians consumed it as a tea but that is a very inefficient method).

You will need dry red wine 14 % alcohol (it needs to be a strong 13-14% red wine for it work).

And you will need 2-3 grams of dried leaves and 1 gram 20x extract.

Put it in the wine, let it soak for a day or two.

Filter the wine, and it’s done.

Serve chilled, enjoy!

It’s a great legal high, I absolutely love it. Very few people know about blue lotus, it’s an undiscovered gem from Ancient Egypt.

Wild Dagga, Leonotis leonorus

legal_high_wild_dagga_petals
Wild dagga

Wild dagga (a.k.a lion’s tail) is a mild legal high belonging to the mint family.

It originates from South Africa and has characteristic orange flower petals.

It is a staple ingredient in many of the pre-packaged, legal, herbal incense, herbal potpourri mixtures available online.

The stems and leaves of the plant have very little concentration of the active ingredients.  The characteristic orange petals contain the active ingredients in the highest concentration.

 

Effects

The effects are similar to that of THC but much milder (extracts of wild dagga can be quite strong).

However, the plant has unpleasant taste when smoked and it irritates the lungs and throat.

Therefore, it is best not to smoke it but rather it is best consumed as tea.

 

Dosage

It is best consumed as a tea (although it can be smoked as well).

A dosage is – depending on the potency of the plant – is between 2 – 10 grams of dried flowers.

The potency of  batches vary greatly.

Start with a small dose.

Buy Salvia divinorum US

The FDA put an import alert on Kratom and Salvia (large commercial orders are seized by the customs). Vendors selling Kratom & Salvia in the US have no way of importing Salvia and replenishing stocks.

However a few vendors still claim they have Salvia for sale.
90% of these online stores are a SCAM!

Please be very careful if you decide to purchase Salvia from a US vendor (not advisable).

I tested 6 of them and all turned out to be scams (you can find them on the legal high shop blacklist).

You can still safely buy Salvia from European vendors, see below.

Small orders for personal consumption not exceeding 1 kg (1000 grams) are unlikely to be seized by customs.

Nutmeg

4 Myristica fragrans nuts, a legal deleriant.
Nutmeg

Myristica fragrans, widely known as nutmeg. The fruit of this evergreen tree is used as a spice all over the world.

Few know, that it actually has intoxicating properties.

 

Effects

Yes, eating nutmeg can actually make you feel high, or to be more precise delirious.

It is a deliriant.

Many who have attempted it report marijuana like buzz and sometimes intense hallucinations (bad trips are more common, common themes are panic, horror, paranoia, dread) .

The main active ingredient is myristicin.

The use of nutmeg as a recreational drug is unpopular due to it’s unpleasant taste and it’s side effects.

You will always experience some or all of these side effects: dizziness, flushes, dry mouth, accelerated heartbeat, temporary constipation, panic , problem in urination and nausea.

Large doses can also kill you and some people are actually allergic to it, so even small doses can kill them.

It is legal everywhere and can be found in most grocery stores.

Simon says: you should stay away from nutmeg. There are much better alternatives. If you still don’t believe me read my nutmeg trip report.

 

Dosage

  1. Thank you for a most interesting and incredibly informative web site.
    Can you advise what would be the best legal high for creating a high and simultaneously producing enhanced aphrodisiac qualities.
    I also noted that most of your legal high drugs are taken as an infusion or tea, smoked or ingested as a capsule. There is not a lot on your site that promotes Insufflation – is there a reason for this?
    Looking forward to reading your comments.
    Kind regards
    Alec

  2. Simon,
    I am purchasing the legal shrooms, do these get eaten also?

  3. Hey I am 13 and I need to know a legal drug in michigan that isn’t addicting and is a mood enhancer

    1. I also live in MI. You’re way too young to be worrying about legal highs.
      If you wait till you’re of legal age, by then marijuana will be legal and regulated like alcohol all across the country.

      Expanding your mind should only come when you have fully individuated. So wait till you’re older.

  4. please add a warning to the nutmeg.

    I ate 5 nutmeg balls 6 months ago and it was an AWFUL experience. it produced NO ‘high effects’. i was SICK FOR 3 DAYS, RAPID HEART BEAT,SICK,PUKING,DIZZY,ETC.

    don’t go near nutmeg.

  5. What is youre opinion on Yerba Mate. Very popular in South America.

    1. Yerba Mate is not a legal high. It does not get you “high”. It only has tea+like mild stimulant effects.

      That’s not enough to be included among the best legal highs.

  6. Hey Simon,
    I’ve been thinking of trying Fly Agarics for a while now since I found out that they’re not as poisonous as myth and folklore have made them out to be.
    I have only ever tripped once on magic truffles with great effects. I just want a second opinion on weather I should take Fly Agarics yet and how safe they really are.
    Because of their two active ingredients being different to psilocybin I am slightly worried about their affect on my body.
    Also for a first timer should I buy the caps or concentrate? I do have a patch of them growing near my house but don’t trust myself to pick the correct ones knowing my luck.
    Thanks.

    1. Bizzee Bee says:

      I bought fly agaric extract and fly agaric from Herbal Eye and they had no effect what so ever. Really disappointed I wasted £50 on these products I feel scammed. I will stick to truffle sites in future.

      1. I’m sorry to hear that. Did you follow the dosage recommendations on the site?

        This is really unusual. those mushrooms are really strong!

    2. Please make sure you don’t overstep the recommended dosage.

      Fly agariac might not be as good as magic truffles or magic mushrooms. Most people agree on that (myself included).

      It’s a magic mushroom substitute, used by people, who live in countries where it is not legal.

      Make sure you start with a small dosage and see whether you like it or not. It’s not for everyone.

      As long as you use common sense and don’t do much more than the recommended dosage for a person of average height and weight you won’t have any problems.

  7. Hi, Simon:

    Just curious: should Dream Herb (a.k.a. Calea Zecatachichi (I think the spelling is right) be included in your lists? I don’t see it on your website and am curious as to how you would classify it and what you think of it. It seems to be a popular entheogen, and regarded as one of low toxicity with few side effects, according to many.

    1. Yes. I have heard of it.

      Next time I will add black pepper to the list (fresh ground black pepper really does get you high, unbelievable but true! tested it myself just the other day and you can get it in any grocery store).

      I will eventually order and test dream herb as well.

      Don’t forget, that I’m just one guy and obviously I have not yet tested all legal highs available online.

      But I’m on it.

      Check back later for an updated and extended guide. I’m updating and extending this guide on a regular basis.

  8. Hi Simon,
    Still on these fly agarics, a couple of years back I picked a huge fly agaric I found down the woods, I must have ate half of it straight up and I remember being really sick afterwards, that was all that happened though no trip or nothing which made me not go back, did I do something wrong? whats the best way to take it?

    1. Please read my fly agaric guide here.

      If you don’t find the answer to your question there please leave a comment at the bottom of the guide.

      Let’s keep the discussion about Fly agaric at the Aminata guide comments section.

      Thanks!

  9. Charles Smith says:

    I noticed that Phenibut isn’t on this list but based on forums I’ve read, it is an effective way to get high. Is it not on the list because it isn’t safe?

    1. β-Phenyl – aminobutyric acid belongs to the research chemicals/designer drugs category. I don’t deal with them.
      And yes they are all very dangerous and illegal in many countries.

  10. Effy Davies says:

    There is a massive long bush of Angels Trumpets (Datura) down my road that has been there for a very long time and I have walked past it almost everyday not knowing anything about it until now, I must be somewhat lucky, as apparently it is difficult to get hold of.

    1. Matthew Sawdon says:

      Just be very careful to not let it get a hold of you…i lost 5 hours of my life with no recollection whatsoever and only vague (but still truly disturbing to recall) memories of my own behaviour for the following 16 or so hours, from just 60ml of a 1500ml mixture of honey, water and Datura(a single fresh 25cm plant) thrown together on the stove one afternoon.

      Be. Very. Careful.

  11. Rash_Hash says:

    I’ve done Nutmeg LOADS of times, cos I live in the UAE and practically everything is illegal when it comes to drugs here. The dosage is about 4-8 tablespoons and it takes 3+ hours to work, after 3/4 hours you feel like you’re on weed, after 5/6 hours it produces a nice hallucinogenic effect, and u feel so lazy and relaxed its amazing. The hangover sucks though

  12. Hey Simon, thanks for the awesome website! I am looking into getting some Ephedra viridis. I’m having difficulty finding any info on the best way to prepare it for the best high, rather than for weight loss. It seems the tea prep takes quite a bit of the dried plant to make, and I’d like to be as efficient as possible. Can it be eaten? Should I grind it up and mix it with a drink? Put it in a capsule?
    I know your info says 1-3g of the dried plant is a good dose, but what is the best method preparing 1-3g with the intent of a high.

  13. Simon how do I make the herbs at home

    1. Which one? Where do you live? What is your experience growing ethnobotanicals?
      What’s your budget? Do you live alone? Do you have pets? Is it a rented apartment? Do you have a garden? If not do you have AC in your house?

      Need much more info to answer your question.

  14. Prateek Goyal says:

    hi thanks for sharing this information… can u please tell me that how can we take datura into our body.. thanks

  15. Chris Man says:

    Hi Simon. I ordered Kratom from Herbal Eye over a week ago, but have yet to receive it. Is that a reliable site? I have attempted to contact them via email multiple times and have not received a reply. There is no phone number that I am aware of. Now, I do live in the U.S. so I know it may take a while to receive international orders, but the fact that they have not replied to my emails has me a bit suspicious. Are you aware if there is any problems with their website lately?

    1. I’m not aware of any problems, I have just ordered successfully from them in January.I know the owner’s personal email actually and I will ask them about your order and will let you know.

      Your emails may have been filtered out as SPAM, it happens sometimes.

    2. Hey Chris,

      So, I asked them and PM-d you their answer.

      I just don’t want to put it on the website for privacy reasons. I have sent it to your email address. Apparently it was was shipped on 5th March and you should have received a confirmation email from them (just check your SPAM folder).

      Details are in the email I’ve just sent you.

      I hope this helps,
      Simon

      1. Chris Man says:

        Thanks Simon!! I actually received my order today. I appreciate you checking it out for me.

        1. You are welcome. Your original comment really scared me btw..

          You ordered from one of the endorsed shops I personally use. I don’t want to endorse any ethnobotanical e-commerce store that does not respect it’s customers.

          I’m glad it was a false alarm. But please keep alerting me if anything goes wrong with any of the endorsed shops on my website. I will instantly remove them if I receive complaints (justified, legitimate complaints).

          Remember I’m just one dude, I only order from them [the endorsed shops I personally use] every other month or so (I’m not made out of money) so feedback is always appreciated.

  16. Hi SIMON,

    Great site, which I am steadily getting through.
    I am coming at this from a different angle.
    I have never taken a legal high, apart from alcohol.
    But I am interested in growing various plants.
    I have 10 acres of land in southern Spain that I can use straight away.

    My question is, which plants offer the best ROI?
    Which would be suited to a climate of very hot summers and cool winters?

    Please feel free to email me personally.

    Best regards

    Jay

  17. Hi,

    I wanted to inform you that areca nut and betel leaf is available in many asian/bengali grocery stores in the UK. They are fresh leaves and the nuts can be bought fresh or dried.

  18. By the way, this is a great website very interesting and a good way to study psychoactives. Great work. :DD

  19. great site. Really informative. I was doing research and I came across this website that has some ethnobotanicals that aren’t listed here, if you were looking to make your site a bit more comprehensive http://ethnobotany.wikia.com/wiki/List_Of_Common_Ethnobotanicals
    But overall you’re site is amazing. Quick question, why are these vendors all from the uk us and Netherlands lol? Why aren’t there any from other parts of the world. Idc much because I’m from the us.

    1. Also, if you were thinking of putting African dream root up you might as well put up Mexican dream herb too. Also I think a mailing list would be awesomefirst whenever this got updated. I plan on buying from your links when I make the plunge so that you get a bit of throwback lol

      1. Just a heads up. I bought some things using your link. In Rhode Island, US, salvia and Datura are illegal.

  20. Hey man what’s the story with shipping to Ireland? Do you do it and is it safe? All the head shops got shut down here a few years back.

  21. Why is the UK shop taken off?
    Also, wild dagga was interesting. Mild effects and short lived but pleasant except for the taste of the tea and how much had to be consumed

    1. I had too many complaints from people that the herbal legal highs (ethnobotanicals) they purchased there had no effect whatsoever.

      I can no longer recommend them (+ they were very expensive, and their customer support was REALLY slow – took more than 2 weeks, and 5 emails to get a response).

      And if all this wasn’t enough the political climate in the UK has long been strongly hostile towards legal highs (and it’s getting worse!). Some brick&mortar head shops were closed down, forcing online headshops to raise prices to make up for lost revenue, or close down altogether. I’m not even sure the UK shop is actually still in operation, they haven’t responded to my last 3 emails. I will not vouch for them anymore.

  22. The Siberian Motherwort can be widely available where I’m living. Most of the people here use it as a herb for cooking. I am an occasional smoker of it and I can say that it pretty much gives you a mild body high which makes you sleep better.

  23. Hello Simon,
    I am very pleased with the content on this website. I have given only a few legal highs a try including salvia. I am not an opiate addict but I absolutely love the effects of opiates and was wondering what would be the best alternative to something like oxycodone. I also just want to say I am most definitely going to support and spread this website around. The “no gimmicks” feel to this website and your information truly impresses me and I look forward to hearing your response

  24. On an additional note I think adding information on if these substances will or will not cause false positives on drug tests would be some very helpful information, or at least links to trusted information on the same. I would hate to see someone who cares so much about their website and readers lose that trust for getting fired for using something they think is completely harmless. Thank you!

  25. Dear Simon,

    Thank you VERY much dor rooting out the scam legal highs and making way for the real thing. I was wondering more about Datura and the deliriants. You recommended them not for their potency, but I am somewhat interested in experimenting. Are there any testimonials or experiences with deliriants you or others have that I may inquire?

  26. Hi Simon. While browsing through Herbalfire i found a interesting plant called Desfontainia spinosa. It should produce salvia like effects while smoked or a relaxed dream like state. This sounds pretty interesting to me because salvia is illegal here in Denmark, and my only salvia experience in Amsterdam was a failure (no effects at all). There is not a lot of info and reports about this plant though, so i thought that you might be interested in searching a bit more into it.

  27. Simon, I am confused at how this website works. I am referring about the technical aspects. Two days ago, I submitted a long E- mail describing my experiences with a certain company. I filled out all the necessary fields of information including, True name with matching address . I assumed that if true names and true addresses do not match, the Posting will be denied as being bogus. ( am I wrong?) After posting it, I noticed my entire E-mail with true name and address, was posted in your site for pubic view! what? Now, you state, that true full names and addresses will NOT be viewable, so as to provide some anonymity. But there they were. To add to the confusion, I see that my entire E-mail is not here in this domain. Is it in another Website/domain of yours? thoroughly confused. Just want to clear this up. I think you and your team are doing a fantastic job at giving so much needed and responsible, objective information. I f you can find my original E-mail, I hope you can evaluate and provide an answer. Thanks

    Hi Simon!
    Your site is just amazing! Have you heard of Palo Santo? I feel it would make a fitting addition to your List.
    Greetings from Germany

    1. Thanks!

      I have heard about Palo Santo. However, to the best of my knowledge it has no psychoactive properties.

      I will check it out tough and if I’m wrong I will definitely include it.

      Thanks again,
      Simon
