What Psychedelics Are?

Psychedelics are molecules, fungi, and plants that affect brain function and alter the state of consciousness. They can produce intense visual and auditory sensations as well as profound emotional and cognitive experiences. Throughout history, psychedelics have been used in religious, spiritual, and healing contexts. Nowadays, their use has expanded to include research and therapy.

How Do Psychedelics Work?

Psychedelics work by binding to the communication between brain nerve cells. They particularly bind to serotonin receptors. This binding causes changes in brain function and can produce various physiological and psychological effects.

Examples of Psychedelics

Well-known psychedelics include LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), psilocybin (magic mushrooms), DMT (N,N-dimethyltryptamine), ayahuasca (containing DMT), and mescaline (found in certain cacti). Each psychedelic has different characteristics and effects. For example, LSD can produce an energized state and several hours of altered perceptions of the environment and consciousness, while DMT can induce a rapid and intense journey into the so-called DMT reality.


The effects of psychedelics depend on the dosage and the environment in which they are taken.

Common effects include:

  • Changes in time and space perception
  • Intense visual and auditory sensations
  • Profound emotional and cognitive experiences
  • Sense of unity or interconnectedness
  • Healing or transformative experiences

Psychedelics can also cause negative effects, such as:

  • Nausea or panic attacks
  • Fear or anxiety

It is essential that psychedelics are used responsibly and safely, and that the experience is supervised by an experienced person (trip sitter).

Law and Psychedelics

The legal status of psychedelics varies from country to country. In some countries, such as Finland, psychedelics are prohibited by law, and their possession or distribution is punishable. On the other hand, in some countries, such as Canada and Brazil, certain psychedelics have been legalized for medical or religious use.
