Some people consider Morning Glories a decoration. Some people consider them a pain in the butt. While it is hard to deny that the plants aren’t beautiful there are some individuals that have discovered that the seeds that the pervasive vines contain are as intoxicating as LSD and other powerful psychedelics.
The chemical within these seeds that produce the psychedelic effects is known as LSA or lysergic acid amide. Molecularly speaking, LSA is similar to D-lysergic acid diethylamide.
How Safe Is Consuming Morning Glory?
Despite what you might have heard eating morning glory seeds is not really dangerous. However, when you consume large amounts of them they can cause hallucinations along with a host of other physical symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, and even an overdose. In fact, the substance is becoming an extremely popular substance of abuse. More and more people are abusing the substance for the powerful hallucinogenic properties.
Long-term abuse of this substance could potentially lead to psychosis and other serious mental health disorders. One should proceed with extreme caution when consuming Morning Glory seeds.
Despite the seriousness of the Morning Glory effects the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has classified Morning Glory seeds as a Schedule Three substance. This means that it is listed as a moderate to low potential for dependence or sugar. It should also be noted that LSD is considered a Schedule One substance.
Why Are Morning Glory Seeds Psychedelics?
The average homeowner might run down to the local hardware store and pick up a few dozen beautiful Morning Glory seeds and randomly plant them in their garden. However, what they do not know is that they are actually buying seeds that contain a potent alternative to LSD.
And, this was mentioned above as D-lysergic acid amide. D-lysergic acid amide is a precursor to LSD and LSA is capable of producing hallucinogenic effects that are similar to that of the popular psychedelic LSD. Speaking of LSD, it is interesting enough that the man that invented LSD also discovered LSA and this is, of course, the infamous Albert Hoffman.
What Is A LSA Trip Like?
Everyone can experience a trip in different manners. Some people experiences might be more vivid while others are calmer. And, this is because there are a number of factors that can determine how you experience that trip. First off, it has a lot to do with genetics.
Next, your tolerance in combination with the number of seeds can also make a difference in the trip that you will experience. However, it should be noted that there is one common report with an LSA trip. It seems that LSA can trigger a high degree of discomfort. This discomfort comes in the form of cramping, extreme nausea, and other stomach pains that might result in vomiting.
However, once you get past that you will be catapulted into a dreamlike state with a slightly introspective mindset. Other users have said that an LSA trip is nothing like the potency of an LSD trip. In fact, the user claimed that his LSA trip was like taking an extremely mild dose of acid.
Despite this, there are other users out there that have reported positive experiences. And, this was probably because they combined LSA with other drugs. One user claimed that he took LSA with marijuana and it reduced the feelings of nausea and was very visual, beautiful, and dreamlike. Another use did the same and said the trip produced a strong body high that was downright weird.
The Effects And Side Effects OF LSA Abuse
It is no doubt that one of the most common effects associated with LSA is the physical discomfort. It seems that every user out there has experienced some form of discomfort and this is probably why more and more people are consuming the substance with other soothing agents like marijuana.
That being said when consuming LSA some of the effects that you are going to experience could include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, delirium, high blood pressure, increased blood pressure, increased heart rate, cramping in the stomach, and cramping in the muscles.
Some of the psychedelic effects that you could experience are thought connectivity, faster thinking, introspection, suppressed ego, time distortion, an enhanced state of mind, and a feeling of fascination.
