plant seeds that get you high

How to Grow: Sow seeds indoors in spring, planting the seedlings in a sunny or partly shaded location with rich soil once the weather has warmed. Skullcap requires weekly irrigation during dry periods. Cut the dried foliage to the ground each fall.

Herbal Properties: Skullcap has a mild calming effect when smoked.

Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara)

Herbal Properties: Mints are used primarily to impart flavor to smoking blends. There are many varieties worth experimenting with, including spearmint (Mentha spicata) (pictured above), peppermint (Mentha piperita), and chocolate mint (Mentha x piperita ‘Chocolate’). Close relatives of mint, including lemon balm (lemony flavor) and yerba buena (sweet menthol flavor), are often incorporated in smoking blends, as well.

Here are six plants – legal and available to any teenager – that are sometimes used to get high.

It can be difficult to deal with a teen who has been abusing drugs – both legal and illegal – especially if he has reached a point of dependency. Many parents and teens seek help to address this dependency, and help is not always easy to find. The first real step to getting help is to identify the problem.

Legal but Dangerous

The most important thing to remember is to remain calm and empathetic. While you may feel angry at the behavior, an ugly confrontation could drive a teenager into deeper abuse. Instead, approach your teen from a place of understanding and a desire to help. It can be helpful to enlist the assistance of a professional in the process.

Many teenagers turn to drugs out of boredom, rebelliousness, or just a need to escape. The reasons for using are as numerous as the teens who use. Access to illegal drugs, however, is often limited, keeping many would-be addicts from using. Cigarettes, alcohol, and, increasingly, marijuana, are legal options, but only for those of age. However, there are other options for teenagers looking to get high – many are legal, and many are easily found.

These signs can sometimes be tricky since some may be present simply because one is a teenager. If you notice these signs in your teen, keep a closer eye out for potential drug use. You may discover evidence of these plants – such as crushed leaves or little plastic baggies – in their room or in the pockets of their clothes.

The LSA chemical was discovered by Albert Hoffman, who also discovered LSD, when he — you guessed it — chewed the seeds. It’s classed as a Schedule III substance by the DEA, with a “moderate to low potential for physical and psychological dependence.” Other drugs in the same classification family are codeine and ketamine, although the Morning Glory flower is much easier and much less sketchy to obtain.

The average gardener may not know that they’re actually burying seeds that contain a potent alternative to LSD. It’s known as “D-lysergic acid amide” (that’s LSA to you) and it’s what’s known as a precursor chemical to LSD. LSA induces psychedelic effects not too dissimilar from that trippy drug you already know and love.

Morning Glory Seeds Get You High Because They Contain LSA

Still, other users have reported more pleasant — or at least not unpleasant — experiences, often commenting on how the dosage and any other drugs taken at the same time can alter the effects. “LSA is amazing. Very visual, very beautiful, very dreamy,” writes one user. “With LSAs I feel like having a strong body high and it can be pretty weird,” said another.

But before you go following in his footsteps and popping Morning Glory like it’s sunflower seeds, there are some crucial differences between LSA and LSD that are important to know going into it.

We’re getting into the gardening season. If you’re into that sort of thing, one of the prettiest and most popular seeds to sow around this time is that of the Morning Glory flower, with its bright hues and soft shape. But, if you start to get bored turning the soil, don’t chew on their seeds, because they contain a powerful hallucinogenic compound. Chewing them unlocks the drug inside and you’re likely to puke.
