Top 10 Most Hallucinogenic Drugs

The Top Ten

DMT is a very interesting drug. It might not be for everyone, but if you like psychedelics, then you must try this. People talk about breaking through. I've smoked it about 8 times and never broke through. Amazing experience, but I was still in the real world, just with out-of-this-world visuals. The colors in stuff are intensified tenfold. You can't believe your brain is seeing what it's seeing.

I then had it in a capsule at a party, which was also a very nice experience, similar to having a strong LSD, only it lasted about 5 to 6 hours, unlike tabs which can last up to 12. But when I took a capsule another time, I think I was breaking through. I kept coming in and out of reality and was getting overwhelmed by my own thoughts. Going into a dream world I was making up in my thoughts. This wasn't like me. I felt like breaking through was for people who dreamed a lot or for weak-minded people that couldn't handle drugs, as I've had loads of psychedelics in my life and never left reality. This time, I did, and I was re-enacting thoughts. I was having a dream, I think. I don't know. Very out of character for me. I don't dream.

It's a good idea to know how much DMT is in the capsule you're having because a big hit can break you through, as they say. I wasn't in control and kept coming and going out of reality. I'd be fine one minute talking to my girlfriend for a good ten to fifteen minutes, then I would just go again into another reality and not talk, but I thought I was. Really strange. The drug itself is amazing. Just don't take too much, especially if consuming in capsule form, as the effects last longer.

2 Magic Mushrooms

The first time I did it, it was carelessly just trying to have fun, and it changed my life. When you hallucinate and get worried, stop worrying, breathe, and let the trip happen. The more you go against the trip, the more likely you are to have paranoia, and that leads to a bad trip. But if you are prepared mentally, it can be amazing and it makes you look at the world from a whole new perspective.

When I had a good trip, it was amazing. Everything in your sight is vivid, and it's something you should do at least once in your life if you're up for it. And even if you do have a bad trip, it's okay. Bad trips are very beneficial, and they can help you work towards fixing your flaws. If you're going to take them for the first time, take no more than 1.5 grams.

3 Ayahuasca

I just got out of a 5-day ayahuasca retreat in the Sacred Valley of Peru. It was the most intense experience of my life. My demons left my body or were sucked out by the shaman, literally through my belly button and head. I saw other universes and experienced them deeply. I now know my purpose in life. Ayahuasca isn't a drug. It's a medicine. It needs to be respected and practiced in the safest environment possible.

I tripped for 8 hours straight and experienced complete ego death, and was reborn on the 3rd night. It was so intense, challenging, and incredibly hard on the body and mind. However, it was so beautiful. I received reassurance about my life and place on the Earth.


DXM is dextromethorphan (brand name Romilar) and is a non-narcotic cough syrup. It's related to the natural opiates codeine, morphine, and thebaine. Those molecules are all levo substances and lose their addictive and narcotic properties as a dextro-enantiomer. It can cause very mild hallucinations at very high doses together with drowsiness, nausea, and respiratory depression. It's only used to cut with other potent drugs to enhance their effects.

Saying that this molecule is a hallucinogenic drug is ridiculous. It's not even scheduled as a controlled substance and is an over-the-counter antitussive. Most of the comments I read here about DXM are nonsense (I'm sure they even didn't try it). To put this on number 5 on this list above mescaline, LSD, and many others is even more ridiculous.


Absolutely, hands down, LSD is my favorite hallucinogenic so far. I would say DMT is, although DMT is not even comparable to a psychedelic drug. In my opinion, DMT should be in its own classification, completely different. Anyway, I've done LSD 15 times. I love it. I highly suggest it for new timers, as long as they choose the correct dose and test the LSD.

It was an eye-opener for me and my life in a dark time. I was extremely suicidal at the time, considering committing suicide after the trip (pre-planned before the trip). But that night I took the tab, I was blown away by the amazement of life and its beauty. I realized every single human's importance, including myself. The colors I saw were purple, green, and blue. They would repeat in a circle, and letters and numbers on my phone would wiggle and dance. The air was wavy, and objects were breathing. I felt amazing, pure euphoria and happiness.

Anyway, after my first trip, I did it 14 more times, and I plan to continue. I've had one hellish experience, but it was because I smoked a little too much weed with it, and my visuals were very strong. I began feeling sick, and my eyes hurt like hell. This caused anxiety and fear, and I eventually was convinced I was dying. But despite one bad experience, I highly recommend this amazing drug. Just don't smoke weed unless you are very experienced, or if weed doesn't cause you much paranoia like it does for me.

6 Mescaline

Mescaline, from San Pedro or Trichocereus bridgesii (the female of San Pedro cacti), is reported to have the highest mescaline yield compared to any other member of the San Pedro family. I know because I tried Peruvian torch and San Pedro. Mescaline from San Pedro is very underrated. I've tried psilocybin mushrooms more times than I can count, LSD like 10 times, and also 25i-NBOMe. Mescaline was the last psychedelic I've tried recently.

The trip comes on very gently, almost sedating while coming up. The euphoria is close to that of pure MDMA. The trip will start around your second hour at the most, peaking around the 4th hour. The visuals are very subtle and complex, depending on the dose. The duration of the trip is 10-15 hours, so it's best taken early in the day. Low lighting plus music will intensify the visuals.

To prepare, brew 12-14 inches of San Pedro or Achuma (the female). Brew the cacti for at least 4-6 hours, freeze the cuttings overnight, thaw, then blend, also adding ascorbic acid (vitamin C) 1000mg for every 12 inches. This process will extract more alkaloids from the cacti. Honestly, this should be at the top, or tied with DMT. The insights from this special molecule cannot be put into words.

7 Salvia Divinorum

Salvia is weak. My friend bought a half ounce for 60, and he started tripping hard only after using more than a quarter. Do not expect this to taste good, either. It doesn't taste bad, just very unique. But even if you were to smoke enough to start tripping, it would be quite similar to taking a couple of microtabs. No visuals, you just feel wired. Mixing it with weed is ideal because it creeps up on you along with the weed high and gives it the extra boost it clearly lacks when smoked by itself.


Ecstasy is a derivative of methamphetamine. Its full name is methylenedioxymethamphetamine. It has stimulant properties with minimal effects or alteration of memory and orientation. Its use does not result in frank hallucinations. Only on very high doses can it give visual hallucinations, but this goes together with over-agitation, panic attacks, and other unpleasant effects. Therefore, ecstasy can't be called a hallucinogenic drug like LSD or some tryptamines.

Many ecstasy on the market sold as ecstasy aren't always the true molecule MDMA. If you have hallucinations with ecstasy, it's for sure that you have taken another molecule sold falsely as ecstasy.

9 5-MeO-DMT

By far the most intense psychedelic on the planet, in my experience. With one toke administered by an extraordinarily experienced modern medicine man, I experienced multiple tantric orgasms for 20 minutes straight while doing yogic backbends. The orgasmic feeling in my chest endured intensely for 3 days afterward, and more subtly, although completely visceral and palpable, for about two weeks. (I am still able to enter that space without any touching, just through concentration of energy.) After the orgasms subsided, I experienced pure bliss. Soundlessness, complete stillness. The entire experience lasted for about an hour. It changed my life, for the better.

10 2C-B

I did this together with my girlfriend a few days ago. She had never tried any psychedelics, while I had. I took 2 pills, and she took 1. After half an hour, we felt super floaty, and the furniture in my room started shapeshifting. I started playing the piano and felt the music through my body. Then, I looked at my hands, and they were growing larger and larger. Now was the moment where it really started to kick in.

My sister was home, and I didn't think she would come and bother us, but she randomly came into my room wearing a Viking dress she had made herself for a school project. I thought it was so cool! I told her how awesome her dress was and took a picture of it for her. Even though it was a brown dress, it appeared so bright to me! I didn't feel awkward while talking to her, and I don't think I sounded weird to her because she didn't ask me anything strange. She didn't notice anything!

I turned back when she left the room and saw my girlfriend sitting on the bed. I just had this urge to kiss her. It was the best feeling ever. I held her in my arms as we watched everything in my room change patterns and colors. It was like we were watching a 3D movie. I saw everything double or triple. Then we made out for about an hour, and I'm telling you, sex on this stuff is amazing!

After that, the effects started to go away, but we still went for a walk at a park nearby my home. I felt a huge connection with everyone walking around in the park, and the colors were so bright.

This drug is an amazing psychedelic. After I use this drug, I always have more positive vibes, and I have more motivation for everything I do. Try it for yourself!

The Contenders
11 Peyote

Just watch Beavis and Butthead Do America, and you'll agree with this one.

12 Cannabis (Marijuana/THC)

Yes, believe it or not, folks, cannabis can be considered a psychedelic. I don't know about other people, but when I smoked it, everything had something out of the ordinary that I would never have known or heard until I was "high." Movies, music, and even life itself had something new to it. And I must say, if you've never experienced this for yourself, well then you must be smoking some pretty weak stuff, or maybe you're just too ignorant to even pay attention to things that deep. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. And for that fact of the matter, I just happen to believe that cannabis is a psychedelic medication. I mean, after all, it is mind-altering.

13 Salvia

Salvia kicks in like a shotgun and is extremely powerful. It tends to be too rough of a trip for most people, and is therefore not everyone's favorite. Personally, I've never had a bad trip on the stuff, but I can understand the apprehension.

Try it once to experience it, but this drug sucks. Horribly uncomfortable and not much positive effects or realizations. Just a mind-blowing, delirious trip. At a high dose, ego-death is near guaranteed.

Salvia is one of the most powerful drugs on the planet. Just because you can buy it at shops and online, don't underestimate this drug. I didn't get a nice feeling from it. It felt like I had gravity pulling me backward. Very visual if you get higher doses of it. I suppose I'm glad I've tried it. The only upside to it is that it only lasts about 10 minutes.

14 Marijuana

Marijuana can actually produce a hallucinogenic experience. If you have not experienced this yet, you need either stronger pot or more of it. I'm not saying you have to go for a full trip every time, but if that's what you're after, you definitely need to intake a large dose. It's perfectly safe but can become overwhelming for some.

The most hallucinogenic marijuana experience I had was after eating two 320mg Sour Diesel sugar cookies (edibles), taking 2-3 dabs, and a few tokes off of a joint. My body was vibrating to the point where it became one with the air around it. It felt like I dissolved into thin air and became total bliss and connection to it all.

15 Datura

Don't do this. It can and will kill you if you don't know the exact dose you are taking, and it's very hard to know the dose. This is a deliriant, different from a psychedelic/hallucinogenic, as you can't differentiate between the hallucinations and what is real. Incredibly dangerous.

Datura is, according to me, the best deliriant or hallucinogen. The experience is intense. One wouldn't even know he is tripping. You might find yourself talking to strangers, thinking they are people you know, or speaking randomly to people. You experience a sense of free will and unstable walking. My legs were bent like a crab. There are balance problems, and you might find yourself speaking nothing but the truth. It's the scariest drug you can have, but an overdose can kill you. There is a very fine line between the actual dose and the lethal/toxic dose.

16 Ketamine

This is one of the only drugs, besides nitrous oxide, that when done in excess can lead to an out-of-body experience. Ketamine is designed to induce a state of paralysis for animals about to go through surgery. When one becomes stuck in the K-hole, this is when they experience a near-death experience that is literally impossible to describe to anyone, even to yourself.

If you have ever fished out off of nitrous, then you may have some idea of how potent of an experience this is. If one reaches the hole, they can stay there for 3 hours. Since it makes it difficult for the user to experience pain or move for that matter, it is often used as a drug for date-rape.

17 Iboga
18 25I

My first psychedelic. I loved it.

19 Morning Glory Seeds

This one really blows. I have tried nearly everything on this list, and I like to trip to the point where people think I won't come back. When I heard about this, I tried a ridiculous amount (600-700) expecting to blast off. Although I blasted off, it was more like a blast off of my stomach rupturing. Imagine LSD, but instead, you are sick, queasy, and the overall body load is about 4 times that of LSD.

I have tried this a few times, starting with 600-700 the first time, then 500, 400, then 250. Even at 250, I became sick, and around 300-400 is when you will truly trip, but they will make you very sick. Euphoria feels like the body "forces" you to feel euphoric, which doesn't feel euphoric at all, I suppose.

20 DOM (STP)

The strongest psychedelic I've done. I've tried almost all listed. I received it on stamps and ingested two stamps. About 10 people took it with me at the same time. When it hit us, everyone blacked out and came to while we were walking down the street 5 minutes later. It was super intense visually, the strongest hallucinations I've ever seen, and I've done everything. I originally thought it was LSD, but after taking LSD a lot, I found it not even slightly comparable in the magnitude of visuals. We would become so flabbergasted at what we were seeing that we were literally unable to communicate.

21 PCP

I had my weed laced with it once. It's far more powerful than DXM. It's slightly stronger than acid, but it is completely different. I would not recommend taking this substance. If you want a good experience, smoke weed. If you want something stronger, eat some mushrooms or take some acid. This stuff is not fun. It's insane.

I tried it. It was overall fun but very inconsistent. Some trips were great, while others were scary and unpleasant. It never made me take off my clothes and run around on the streets. In fact, I'd be lucky to be able to make it to the bathroom on that stuff. I'm retired from PCP.

22 Diphenhydramine (Benadryl)

Diphenhydramine was my second hallucinogen, and I thought it was great. I saw bugs, had lucid dreams, and also felt a drunk-like sensation. I couldn't walk straight.

The next day, I felt so heavy I could barely stand at first, but it got better around the third period at school. I could easily pass out in school, in all my classes, and even for a few seconds. There was a lot of confusion and forgetting that day, and on the third day, I had a headache. Most people didn't like it, but I'd do it again.

This is wild. Even at pretty low doses, it makes you feel like a drunk fat slug, kind of like DXM at high doses but with more delirium and body load, at least for me. It's fun as hell when smoking weed with it. You get weird movie scene hallucinations, and you feel like paparazzi is around you with cameras asking questions, but it's just your mind.

23 Ergine
24 Methamphetamine
25 MDA

What are you talking about? Have you ever taken LSD? Thoughts and visuals like LSD? MDMA is Methylenedioxymethamphetamine, and MDA is Methylenedioxyamphetamine. It's less potent than MDMA, and MDMA has no frank hallucinogenic properties. And you're saying that MDA is better and closer to LSD? For your information, Ecstasy is in the category of Phenylethylamines, and LSD is in the category of Tryptamines.

I had MDA once, a healthy bump to pass the time while waiting for some acid to kick in. It was pretty much like candy flipping in one drug, with euphoria like E and thoughts and visuals like LSD. Geometric strobes in primary colors dominated my peripheral vision, while my focus was either super clear or melty. I would totally choose this over MDMA any time.
