Topic: Psychedelics, dissociatives and deliriants


  
  Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Psychedelics, dissociatives and deliriants
The deliriants (or anticholinergics) are a special class of dissociative which are antagonists for the acetylcholine receptors (unlike muscarine and nicotine which are agonists of these receptors).
Deliriants are considered to be true hallucinogens as users will have conversations with people who aren't there, or become angry with a 'person' mimicking their actions, not realizing it is their own reflection in a mirror (which could be dangerous if they became aggressive towards a glass mirror).
While the regular dissociatives can produce effects similar to lucid dreaming (where one is consciously aware they are dreaming), the deliriants have effects akin to sleepwalking (where one doesn't remember what transpired during the experience).

 Psychedelic Drug   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Psychedelic drugs are psychoactive drugs whose primary action is to alter the thought processes of the brain.
Psychedelics have a long history of traditional use in native medicine and religion, where they are prized for their perceived ability to promote physical and mental healing.
Classic psychedelics include LSD, psilocybin (one active principle of 'magic mushrooms'), mescaline (one active principle of peyote and the San Pedro cactus), LSA (morning glory seeds) and also Ayahuasca (known in Beatnik literature as yajé), a traditional shamanic tea brewed from plants containing dimethyltryptamine and harmine or harmaline.

Its psychedelic properties were unknown until 5 years later, when Hofmann, acting on what he has called a "peculiar presentiment," returned to work on the chemical.
There is also some indication that LSD may trigger a dissociative fugue state in individuals who are taking certain classes of antidepressants such as lithium salts and tricyclics.
Although there were many distribution channels during this decade, the U.S. identified continued tours by the psychedelic rock band The Grateful Dead and the then-burgeoning rave scene as primary venues for LSD trafficking and consumption.

The psychedelic (from the Greek words for "mind," ψυχη psyche, and "manifest," δηλειν delein) drugs are classified as those whose primary action is that of enhancing or amplifying the thought processes of the brain.
Many people have applied the term psychedelic to other drugs including cannabis, dissociative arylcyclohexylamines such as PCP and ketamine, tropane deliriants such as atropine, or novel psychoactives such as Amanita muscaria and Salvia divinorum.
Newer "designer drug" psychedelics such as MDMA, 2C-T-7, and other phenethylamine analogues are harder to identify and easier to "cut" (nearly all presenting as a white powder with a bitter taste with doses too small to judge without laboratory-precision scales).

 Psychedelics, Dissociatives, and Deliriants : Different Drugs, Different Dosages, Different Actions : James Kent
But these are only two aspects of the classic psychedelic state, and I would say that a great majority of non-visual tryptamines and phenethylamines fall into one or both of these lesser category, and even classic psychedelic phenethylamines (like Mescaline) typically only have entactogenic or empathogenic affects unless taken at very high doses.
Pharmacologically dissociatives work on the general principle of interrupting or inhibiting the associative pathways of the brain, thus creating a state where various parts of the brain are isolated from each other, incommunicado, or simply not responding.
The perceptual effects of Salvinorin terpenes — such as a hard tingling sensation, rotation of spatial orientation, dissociative boundary dissolution, the emergence of geometric or cellular patterns, somatically overwhelming immersive states — all suggest typical psychedelic activity in the cortex, but could also be caused by targeted dissociation or signal disruption within various brainstem/limbic regions.

 More info on hallucinogens
Broadly speaking, psychedelics more often have various visually distorting effects, deliriants are a class of drug that commonly cause extremely strong, often overpowering and unwanted visual and auditory hallucinations.
The primary dissociatives are similar in action to PCP (angel dust) and include Ketamine (an anaesthetic), and DXM (the active ingredient in cough syrup).
The deliriants (or anticholinergics) are a special class of dissociative which are antagonists for the acetylcholine receptors (unlike muscimol which is an agonist of this receptor).

At high levels this can become very overwhelming, and can result in a dissociative state whereby one is so occupied by their racing thoughts that they lose touch with the outside world during the peak of the experience.
Many people argue that psychedelic drugs played a major role in catalyzing the vast social changes initiated in the 1960.As a result of the growing popularity of LSD, and, some contend, establishment disdain for the hippies with whom it was heavily associated, LSD was banned in the United States in 1967.
After the fading from public sight as one of the many elements of the 1960s counterculture, hallucinogen use took a less visible but nevertheless persistent role in Western society in the 1970s and 1980s.

Similar to ethanol, psychedelics have long been a key element of lost-civilisations such as the Mayas, who made use of the psilocybin mushrooms that lay growing on their land.
In the so-called intelligent civilisation we currently exist in, where evolution is intended to further the mind in its abilities, we are still hesitant as to how knowledgeable they were, while many ingredients of their belief systems can still be perceived throughout our own civilisation.
It is certainly possible that psychedelics have an effect on the sober mind, placing it into unknown territory, but upon awakening from the experience it would be merely classed as an intoxicated dream, the same for as if you had a standard dream or the inversion, a nightmare.

 2C-E - 2 5 dimethoxy 4 ethyl phenethylamine
NCCC1=C(OC)C=C(CC)C(OC)=C1 (2,5-dimethoxy-4-ethylphenethylamine) is a psychedelic hallucinogenic drug phenethylamine first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin, sometimes used as an entheogen.
Vivid hallucinations similar to those experienced while under the influence of LSD are common, and many reports would indicate that the effects of this particular chemical may be overly intense for those not well experienced with psychedelics.
It should be noted that if 2C-E follows the same patterns as 2C-T-7 (another similar chemical) the risks of a serious and potentially fatal overdose are increased significantly when administrated nasally.

When produced naturally, hallucinogens are formed in dozens of psychoactive plants, including the peyote cactus, various species of mushrooms, and the bark and seeds of several trees and plants.
Members of the Native American Church, an organization comprised of members of Indian tribes throughout North America, advocate the use of mescaline, a form of psychedelic drug found in the peyote cactus.
Currently peyote is the only psychedelic agent that has been authorized by the federal government for limited use during Native American religious ceremonies.

Inspired by psychedelic advocates such as Aldous Huxley and Timothy Leary, millions of young people experimented with powerful hallucinogens, and drugs of all kinds became freely available as manufacturers and traffickers took advantage of inconsistent national laws to circumvent restrictions on production and trade.
The Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs of 1961 could not regulate the many newly discovered psychotropics, since its scope was limited to drugs with cannabis-, coca-, and opium-like effects.
Inspired by Aldous Huxley, Timothy Leary, and a host of other psychedelic avatars, young people began using hallucinogenic, stimulant, and other drugs on a widespread scale.

Lysergic acid diethylamide, commonly called LSD, or LSD-25, is a semisynthetic psychedelic drug.
LSD was first synthesized in 1938 by Swiss chemist Dr. Albert Hofmann at the Sandoz Laboratories in Basel as part of a large research program searching for medically useful ergot alkaloid derivatives.
Although LSD is generally considered nontoxic, it may temporarily impair the ability to make sensible judgments and understand common dangers, thus making the user susceptible to accidents and personal injury.

This group of pharmacological agents can be divided into three main categories: psychedelics, dissociatives and deliriants.
In general, psychedelics often have various visually distorting effects; deliriants are a class of drug that commonly cause extremely strong, often overpowering and unwanted visual and auditory hallucinations.
A sedative is a drug that depresses the central nervous system (CNS), which causes states of calmness, relaxation, reduction of anxiety, sleepiness, slowed breathing, slurred speech, staggering gait, poor judgment, and slow, uncertain reflexes.

[3] Taking a hallucinogenic drug without knowledge can result in psychological trauma, and has occurred many times because many psychedelic drugs such as LSD have low dose and can easily be added to food or drink, similar to "date rape drugs" or Mickey Finns, and those who deliberately do that can be charged with assault.
Research on this question has not reached a firm conclusion.
Additionally, Hallucinogen persisting perception disorder (HPPD) is a diagnosed condition where some effects of drugs persist after a long time--although medical technology has yet to determine what causes the condition.

Rightly so, recreational drug abuse is socially deplored – and even psychedelics are condemned by me when used naively, whether the mind-scrambling mescaline or the socially chilling cannabis – the other distinct types of drugs are not worth a hopeless mention.
Conversely, it would be purely uninformed to deny that hallucinogenic and just maybe the deliriant class, too, have provided us, amongst incalculable other things, wonderful insights into natural evolution.
The truth is philosophy’s not here to hinder, but to work harmoniously to further knowledge through science, while even science has innumerable compartments dealing with other areas of philosophy – for example, brain in a vat theory (closely related to solipsism and problem with other minds theory) and the complex quantum physics subject.
