Psychedelic drugs, also known as hallucinogens, are drugs that are designed to trigger psychedelic experiences. This mechanism is activated in the brain through the stimulation of serotonin receptor agonist, which causes an altered state of consciousness and thought/visual/auditory changes. The most popular hallucinogens people use worldwide include mescaline, LSD, psilocybin, and Dimethyltryptamine (DMT).
Drug use legislation for these various substances vary by region, and while most of them remain largely illegal throughout the world, there is much grey area and many places where mescaline, psilocybin, and DMT are, in fact, legal to use. Here our editors have compiled a collection of articles in which we discuss user experiences and general information about psychedelics.
