There are in fact loads of psychedelics in nature. Unfortunately, some of these plants are illegal to own, and some illegal to process. So in this week’s addition about psychedelic plant drugs in New Zealand, I’ll be dividing the plants up into “Legal to own, but not process” and “Legal in general”. It’s important to note that some plants like San Pedro are common, legal to possess but processing them, such as making a tea from one, or extracting the Mescaline, as Mescaline is a Class A drug, is a felony – so please I advise you not to do this. Remember also, that if you wish to explore the self, meditation, floatation and hypnosis are effective routes! Fully Legit The plants that are fully legal are often pretty mild in effect, but effective all the same. On the less LSD like side, we have ‘Sun Opener’ which I have not personally tried, but it apparently produces a cannabis like psychedelia and colored vision. It’s well enough rated by others to be worthy of a mention, certainly not euphoric like cannabis, …

Nature is pretty abundant with relaxing chemicals. And we are familiar with many of them without knowing it, like lavenders powerful “linalool”, or the theanine in tea that gives you a chill feeling. When it comes to relaxing legal plants in nature, there is a lot of options here in NZ. They presented to Him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Ancient painkillers First used by the Egyptians, and introduced to medicine before opium as a painkiller; Myrrh is culturally protected as a staple of Christian ritual and religion. It was given to Jesus on the cross, in wine, to relieve his pain, and of course, it’s in the nativity story too. It’s of course mainly used in aromatherapy and church incense. Recreationally, it produces a stony dreamy space, via similar mechanisms to opium, which some have compared to Kratom in feeling. There are a variety of ways to ingest plant oils, with transdermal (rubbed onto the skin) and via steam probably being the healthiest. We don’t know a lot about overuse, and the health effects so don’t smoke oils, …

Legal natural highs in New Zealand

Natures Highs Part 1: Chocamine, the limitless legal stimulant?

Sempai Drugs, Legal Highs, Natural, Psychedelics, Psychoactive Substances, Research

Legal Highs are still available in New Zealand I’m writing a series here on entheogens and legal highs in NZ. It’s been a confusing time since the psychoactive substances act came into force. While the law has not yet provided a scientific path to legal high drug testing (at least not without animal testing), it has however opened up a black market far scarier than what Peter Dunne and the public had ever imagined. The new law also created some confusion around the definition of a psychoactive substance and what natural plants may or may not fall under the new bill. Getting high or catching a buzz from your local health store or supermarket in NZ As it turns out… nature, industry and the majority of middle class kiwis got to keep all their habitual highs, and some of them are pretty good. The way the law was applied allows for religious, cultural, gardening, food and medicinal exceptions. It quite rightly ignores the majority of herbs that are mild enough to be sold in most major supermarket chains. You’d be surprised that there …

Non-drug paths to altered consciousness

Sempai Knowledge, Legal Highs, Life, Natural, Spiritual, Trippy, Uncategorized

There’s a number of ways to altered consciousness. I’ll start with the more everyday changes in conciousness. Sleep deprivation is the altered state the most people are familiar with. It is anxious,  with tunnel vision, vision disturbances, muddled thinking, and yet in other places it is pleasant, where the cannibinoid Oleylethonalamine is released producing sleepiness, warmth, hunger and ease. A variety of body caused ‘highs’ can be produced. The body releases its own opiates, the beta endorphins with a variety of things, like food, sex. Also in exercise, where anandamide, natures THC is released at the same time. A good high intensity work out will give you a great clean buzz. Oxytocin, with it’s MDMA like effect on the brain is connected to bonding. But when talking about altered states, euphoria may not be what people have in mind. A number of physical conditions can produce altered consciousness, such as lack of oxygen, infection or epilepsy. Some epileptics have profound religious like experiences. A fever can in itself produce hallucinations, creating a delirient effect. When I had this, I saw totally …

“What’s In My Baggie?” is a documentary on the rise of misrepresented substances, as well as a critique of ineffective drug policy. According to the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction, over 250 new drugs have been discovered since 2009. There are so many different psychoactive drugs floating around that people don’t even realize the complex nature of the current situation. To document our findings, we filmed substance test kit results at music festivals, as well as interviews with harm reduction organizations, law enforcement officials, and distributors of these illicit substances. We quickly discovered that most of the time people were surprised to find that their bag of drugs was not what they paid for. For more info, visit whatsinmybaggie.com
