In this blog post I have collected the most important things you need to know to be able to responsible use legal highs. If you heed the advice and use these techniques you too can safely use legal drugs if you personally decide to use any.
Always start with a very small dosage and wait till you start to feel it’s effects, then and only then proceed to increase the amount.
This is basically the ladder method: start small, wait, take a small amount and wait again and repeat at your discretion. This way you can never overdose and you won’t overstep your limits.
Measure twice, consume once! Any self respecting psychonaut must have a precise set of scales at home. You need to accurately measure your intake of legal drugs and not just go by a gut feel. Overdosing can kill you!
Get informed about the legal drug: Never take anything if you are not 100% certain of what it is, what the effects are, and if you are not certain about the recommended safe dosage.
Don’t take legal highs you don’t know nothing about. Don’t use legal high mixtures which do not have their ingredients listed on the package or online. Get informed, stay safe.
Get informed about the seller: This is easier done if you shop online. Reviews of an online legal drugs store are a just a click away online. Online legal drug shops are generally safer (because of the increased visibility and because of legal high review and comparison blogs like mine) than street vendors.
/All links to legal high online stores on my website are linking to trusted vendors who are in business for years. I’m a long time customer at these e-commerce stores and I vouch for them. /
Have a tripsitter nearby
Among psychonauts tripsitting is a common practice. Tripsitter is a person who stays sober and watches over the other people who are taking the legal drugs. If you are planning on using any of the stronger legal highs please always have a tripsitter around.
Prepare for the worst-case scenario
This is just common sense. Always prepare for the worst case scenario. What if you have to call the ambulance? What if someone has an allergy? Can you handle a bad trip?
Do you have a first aid kit? What if someone cuts himself? etc…
What’s the worst that can happen? Ask yourself this question and ask it often.
Time, place, ambiance
Make sure you have a safe place and plenty of free time to trip.
Nothing’s worse than having your landlord come to collect the rent while you are high. Nothing’s worse than accidentally setting off the alarm while you are high on mushrooms.
You need plenty of time, a safe place and a relaxed atmosphere.
Legal high mixtures are fake
Legal drugs, which do not have a public list of ingredients and are sold under the name “legal incense” , legal buds” and “legal marijuana” are 100% fake. The rest, which do have ingredients listed online or on the packaging are overpriced mixtures of individual ethnobotanicals sold by people who want to get rich quick.
As a thumb rule: stay away from shops, which focus mainly on pre-packaged legal high mixtures. There are only a very few legal high mixtures, which are actually not overpriced and are quality mixtures of ready-to-use ethnobotanicals. These mixtures will be included on the blog in time. It just takes time (and money, I have to buy them like anyone else) to find and review these.
Designer drugs, experimental chemicals
First of all, why would anyone would want to take them is beyond me. There are much safer, legal alternatives.
These experimental chemicals (bath salts for example) are called experimental for a reason. It means no one knows what happens if you take them. It’s like playing Russian roulette with your life, it’s only a matter of time till something really bad happens or you die.
Now compare that to the well-known natural, legal psychoactive plants, which have been around for thousand of years. There are literally hundreds of trip reports, reviews of these plants online. Unlike experimental chemicals.
Stay away from designer drugs(they are also very expensive).
Summary: There is a certain subculture of legal drugs- mostly centered around psychedelics – , a way of life.
Psychonauts (people consuming legal highs), have certain similarities and share some characteristics, which inevitably draws them to entheogens (sacred psychoactive plants).
If you are a psychonaut it’s not about getting “hammered” it’s about enjoying the different and many various states of consciousness only reachable trough use of sacred plants. Just like how a wine afficiniado would enjoy a fine wine so do we enjoy and appreciate the different states of consciousness we can experience trough the use of legal drugs. And just like a wine afficinado would enjoy the history, the tradition, behind the wine so do we learn and enjoy the traditions, the history, the legends associated with each legal psychoactive plant, entheogen, ethnobotanical we decide to use.
Mainstream media paints a very inaccurate picture of people who are using legal drugs. Most “users” are responsible adults making their own personal decisions.
However, that being said if you are “stupid” (and I’m using stupid as subjective umbrella term for irresponsible individuals not capable to safely use legal drugs) you better stay away from legal drugs.
