Ketamine
Ketamine Overview : Ketamine is a dissociative anesthetic for human and veterinary use. Its hydrochloride salt is sold as Ketanest, Ketaset, and Ketalar, or on the street as Special K. Pharmacologically, ketamine is classified as an NMDA receptor antagonist, and like other drugs of this class such as tiletamine, memantine, and phencyclidine ( PCP ), induces a state referred to as "dissociative anesthesia."

LSD History Comic
History of LSD History of LSD The psychedelic drug (or entheogen) lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) was first synthesized by the Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann in the Sandoz (now Novartis) laboratories in Basel, Switzerland on November 16, 1938.[1] It was not until five years later on April 16, 1943, that the psychedelic properties were found.[2] Discovery[edit] Albert Hofmann, born in Baden, Switzerland, joined the pharmaceutical-chemical department of Sandoz Laboratories, located in Basel as a co-worker with professor Arthur Stoll, founder and director of the pharmaceutical department.[3] He began studying the medicinal plant squill and the fungus ergot as part of a program to purify and synthesize active constituents for use as pharmaceuticals.
Project MKULTRA

Project MKULTRA

Declassified MKUltra documents Project MKUltra is the code name of a U.S. government human research operation experimenting in the behavioral engineering of humans through the CIA's Scientific Intelligence Division. The program began in the early 1950s, was officially sanctioned in 1953, was reduced in scope in 1964, further curtailed in 1967 and officially halted in 1973.[1] The program engaged in many illegal activities;[2][3][4] in particular it used unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects, which led to controversy regarding its legitimacy.[2](p74)[5][6][7] MKUltra used numerous methodologies to manipulate people's mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as various forms of torture.[8]

E-mail: Erika.dyck@ualberta.ca In the 1950s, researchers in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan began treating alcoholics with d-lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and achieved significant rates of recovery. Psychiatrists, including Humphry Osmond who coined the term ‘psychedelic’ while working in Saskatchewan, believed that the successful treatment of alcoholism with biochemical means would scientifically prove that the condition was a disease and not the result of a weak or immoral character.

Peyote (Mescaline) Peyote is Schedule I in the United States. This means it is illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, or distribute (sell, trade or give) without a DEA license, unless it is being used as part of “bonafide religious ceremonies” (the federal regulation is 42 USC §1996a, “Traditional Indian religious use of the peyote sacrament,” exempting only Native American use, while most state laws exempt any general “bonafide religious activity”). Addictive Potential: None Emergency Room Visits Yearly: ?? Peyote (Mescaline)
Mescaline Mescaline (3,4,5-trimethoxyphenethylamine) is a Schedule I in the United States. This means that it is illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, or distribute without a DEA license. Addictive Potential: None Emergency Room Visits Yearly: Unknown Mescaline
INTENSITY: 3 to 8 for most experiences. MATERIAL: Mescaline is a naturally occurring psychedelic found in several cactus species, most notably, Peyote(Lophophora williamsii) and San Pedro (Trichocereus pachanoi). Several other members of the trichocereus family also contain mescaline. Mescaline belongs to a family of compounds known as phenethylamines, making it quite distinct from the other major psychedelics which belong to the indole family. LSD, psilocybin, harmaline, and DMT are all indoles. Mescaline Mescaline
The Plant with the Answer I am a male (vintage hippy) who has had a fair share of psychadelic experiences in my time. None, however could equal up to the life-changing trip I experienced after ingesting 'the divine catus'. It was saturday in El Paso,Texas. I was out of the house by 6 o'clock looking for my well known friend, lysergic acid diethylamide. Now up until this point I had never had a problem finding acid. The Plant with the Answer
Psilocybin is Schedule I in the United States. This means it is illegal to manufacture, buy, possess, or distribute (sell, trade or give) without a DEA license. Not available by prescription. Fresh and dried psilocybin mushrooms are considered containers of Psilocybin, making them illegal to possess as well. Addictive Potential: None Psilocybin
Psilocybin Mushrooms The Extraterrestrial Inflitration of Earth? INTENSITY: 3 to 7 for most experiences. MATERIAL: There are dozens of species of mushrooms which contain the psychoactive alkaloids psilocybin/psilocin in active amounts. 99% of the psilocybin mushrooms I've seen sold on the underground market are the variety known as Psilocybe cubensis (also called Stropharia cubensis), and dosage levels discussed below pertain to this variety. Some species of psilocybin mushrooms contain up to 10 times as much psilocybin by weight as cubensis, producing an equivalent experience at a much lower dose. HISTORY: The use of psilocybin mushrooms can be traced back thousands of years.
