How Do Hallucinogens Work? Classic hallucinogens are thought to produce their perception-altering effects by acting on neural circuits in the brain that use the neurotransmitter serotonin (Passie, 2008; Nichols, 2004; Schindler, 2012; Lee, 2012). Specifically, some of their most prominent effects occur in the prefrontal cortex—an area involved in mood, cognition, and perception—as well as other regions important in regulating arousal and physiological responses to stress and panic.

DXM

Too many kids who don't know anything about the power of hallucinogens and how to respect them will just guzzle away a bottle of cough syrup. Would you say that DXM is the safest hallucinogen to be used by teens?

DXM
DXM

DXM has cough suppressant effects in its recommended dose range. There are two forms of DXM sold, dextromethorphan hydrobromide and dextromethorphan polistirex. Polistirex's duration of effects are considerably longer than hydrobromide because of an ion exchange that is required before its dissolution into the blood.

Ketamine
Ketamine

Ketamine is used an anesthetic or tranquilizer, and may cause hallucinogenic effects. An addiction to ketamine is difficult to overcome without help. Even when someone wants to stop using the drug, chemical changes in the brain make it nearly impossible to stop.

Ketamine (Special K)

It is called ketamine — or Special K, in street parlance. While it has been used as an anesthetic for decades, small studies at prestigious medical centers like Yale, Mount Sinai and the National Institute of Mental Health suggest it can relieve depression in many people who are not helped by widely used conventional antidepressants like Prozac or Lexapro.
