Many people resort to taking drugs when they are feeling too low and need that ultimate and instant high. The following are the most unheard of and have the most unusual effects.
1. Anafranil (clomipramine)
Anafranil or clomipramine is an anti-depressant but its effects are quite mind-boggling. If the user happens to yawn after taking the drug, he or she will have an orgasm almost immediately. This does not mean that they have to wait for a proper yawn- they can keep yawning deliberately if that’s what they want.
DDT is a pesticide which has now been banned in most countries all over the world. Its effect is similar to that of Ecstasy. A cocktail that went by the name of Mickey Slim was created in the 1950s by mixing gin and DDT.
DIPT is a drug which targets the auditory functions in the brain. This means that the users will find that the sounds around them will be distorted, music will sound bizarre, the pitch on the radio will be lower than ever and some may even experience small-scale hallucinations. Users may feel extremely bloated after taking the drug and will complain about a constant ringing.
Saffron is usually used to add flavor to food. It is orange or yellow and if ingested, can have the same effects as opium. The Ancient Minoans were avid users of this drug- they mixed it with a particular kind of tea.
Catnip is generally for cats but many odd people have tried smoking it. They say that the effects are similar to marijuana and that they feel quite mellow and happy through it all. The aftertaste is quite unusual and will leave a cool mint-like flavor in your mouth. The side-effects include coughing and throat-ache.
Xenon is an inert gas that is present in lamps that discharge gas and in those machines that are used for medical imaging. It is also present in the Earth’s atmosphere and in most anesthetics. Its effects include hallucinations that are ‘vivid and colorful’. One particular user said that it allowed him to focus on one thought at a time and scrutinize memories.
7. Venoms and Poisons
Strychnine and arsenic are two poisons that can have hallucinogenic effects. According to studies and research, it is very easy to get addicted to any of these poisons. As far as venom is concerned, it is said that men in countries like India smoke a snake’s venom because it gives rise to colorful hallucinations. There are certain Native Americans who like eating live ants because that causes hallucinations as well.
8. C-4 Explosives
C-4 is a very effective and powerful explosive. Shockingly, it is also a drug. The effects of the drug include psychedelic hallucinations that leave the user feeling mellow and thoughtful. Side-effects include violent seizures.
Many years ago when people used to get high on amanita muscaria, Eskimos used to drink these users’ urine. This is because the supply of mushroom was limited which is why they did not want to waste it so they turned towards a more economical alternative. Not only that, but they would also feed the drug to reindeer and then eat the animals.
10. Salamander Brandy
Salamander brandy is produced in the most unethical manner- these amphibians produce poison when they realize that they are in danger in order to defend themselves. Therefore, users hang the salamander and pour the brandy over their bodies. The liquid which infuses with the venom is then collected in a cup.
