Pick Your Perfect ULTA Shopping Spree And Find Out What Psychedelic You Should Take
First brought to popularity in the 1960's by Timothy Leary and the Free Love movement, LSD is one of the most well-known psychedelics. Users report a trip that lasts around 12 hours, full of trippy visuals, self-realization, and heightened sensory awareness. Far out!
A naturally-occurring psychedelic, psylocybin mushrooms (sometimes called "Shrooms") have been used for sacred religious practices as well as casual recreational gatherings. Magic Mushroom users report a trip of around 6 hours, filled with uncontrollable giggling, melting walls, quiet reflection, and creativity. How's that for a weird pizza topping?
Known to some as "the spirit molecule," DMT is a psychedelic substance that is found both in nature and in a scientific setting. It is notoriously found in a South American tea known as Ayahuasca, which is used as a catalyst for a spiritual experience in some tribal religions. Outside of these tribes, DMT is commonly a powder that one might smoke with cannabis. Users report a quick trip of about 10-30 minutes, with some only feeling funny for a bit and others disassociating and having a "connection with God." Trippy!
Peyote is a cactus native to Mexico and Southern Texas that contains the psychedelic mescaline. Native Americans in the area have historically used peyote as a religious tool, but it took on a new life in the 1960s when psychedelic drugs were in vogue, most notably in Hunter S. Thompson's works. Similar to LSD and psilocybin (found in Magic Mushrooms), users have reported trips around 12 hours, with effects ranging from synesthesia (e.g. seeing colors for certain sounds or words), "cartoon-like" vision, and deep introspection. Yeehaw!
