Hallucinogenic properties of mead

I haven't heard of "hallucinogenic mead" before and I haven't gotten stoned from drinking mead. I find this topic interesting, but I wouldn't add any illegal substances to my mead. If the grains used in making mead is infested with ergot, wouldn't the mead be poisonous?

That's pretty interesting, I had no idea mead was known for any hallucinogenic properties. That really reminds me of absinthe, which also is supposed to cause hallucinogens. I've drank absinthe, but I didn't get any crazy effects from it. I probably just didn't drink enough though because I was quite a lightweight at the time.

Again, not a lot of references for me to link to, but just passing comments that I came across.

I can definitely attest to psycadelic/hallucinogenic properties of my mead, and some others that I've tried. I've also found that I become somewhat immune to it if I drink mead regularly. I just had some recently after not having drank mead in many months, and I had a more intense experience than usual. I should preface this by saying, I'm super sensitive to any types of drugs (yes, alcohol is a drug too) and I have very limited drug experience (other than alcohol), so I don't have much to compare it to. My mead experience that I call slightly hallucinogenic is as follows: My mind feels extremely active, and I feel a buzzing behind the eyes. There's a definite 'floaty' feeling, too, and when I move I'm not always sure I have complete control over my body. When I close my eyes images flash at me - mostly when I'm sitting or laying still in a dark room.

We always just called that a buzz.;)

I wouldn't be surprised if this were true. Things were more potent before they became processed. And isn't there a type of pure alcohol that can also have these effects?

Hi all, I just want to ask if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. Like this one from trufflemagic/blog/what-are-magic-truffles/ .They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks
