Toxic phychedelics

Avoid ALL the following herbs / Drugs:

Tobacco (including the Golden chain tree), Tobacco Rape, Cannabis, Kratom, Betel nut, Ergot, Wild Dagga, Mescal Bean Bush, Khat, and all the party drugs like Rohypnol, GHB, PCP, Ketamine, cocaine, opium, speed etc.

Addiction, Toxicity, psychological etc. damage without spiritual gain - something to stay away from.

There is little to no spiritual benefit or kundalini development with these herbs / substances. Whatever stories of cannabis or Rape how it also has positive effects, the fact is it nums the whole nervous system, can be very addictive or simply does not have any positive effects on the kundalini and hence also no real lasting spiritual benefits - just stories...

The 2C products from Alexander Shulgin who also invented MDMA seem to be useful however synthetic so I have ot included them in this review + there are over 230 different kindsof 2C. Also the MDMA and similar have the problem that they create a feeling of love with a hangover when it is finished.

Please let me make this clear - AVOID ANY DRUGS, synthetic or plant based, THAT MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD when using it. That is why I am against MDMA, Cannabis, Tobacco etc. DO NOT EVEN TRY THEM.

Also avoid the following ceremonies and herbs:

The Bullet Ant

The Bullet ant produces the single most painful sting in the insect world and with extreme pain comes hallucinations and other phenomena, see video below.


The Sateré Mawé Tribe ceremony - the single most extreme ceremony on the planet using the toxins from the Bullet Ant

Active ingredient: Poneratoxin

Lorenzo is one of the leading Sateré Mawé shamans

Kambo (Kampo, Sapo, Vacina do sapo, Medicina da floresta, Frog medicine)

Psychoactive constituent: Phyllocaerulein

TOXIC and addictive if taken too often

Used among other by the Huni kuin tribe

Kambo is the venomous secretion of Phyllomedusa bicolor (the giant leaf or monkey frog), a bright green tree frog native to the Amazon basin. It can be found in the rainforest regions of northern Brazil, eastern Peru, southeastern Colombia, and parts of Venezuela, Bolivia, and the Guianas. Make sure if you go for this type of experience that you ONLY use the ingredients that did not harm the frog !! Many frogs and toads are stressed and tortured to get the psychoactive liquids and this is absolutely the wrong way, especially if you want to use this for spiritual growth. So make an effort to find out how they are milked. Kambo has a range of traditional and potential therapeutic applications, both medical and psycho-spiritual. Commonly described as an ‘ordeal medicine’, the secretion is known for its powerful emetic or purgative effects (95% of people purge). Despite its initial unpleasantness, kambo is widely sought out to revitalize body (reset the immune system) and mind but does not really boost the kundalini. Also you will be marked for life as small white dots remain at the place where the shaman is administering the Kambo. Little is known about the long-term safety of kambo, but evidence suggests that deltorphin and dermorphin may cause respiratory depression and depressive effects on the central nervous system and lead to heavy reliance with frequent use. So if you feel called to do this, just do 3 sessions to reset your immune system and leave it.

Applied on arm or leg (depending if you are women or man)

sorcerer's tree fruit
(Latua pubiflora - aka Arbolde de los Brujos)

Active ingredient: hyoscyamine and scopolamine

The berries of the Sorcerer's tree used by the Mapuche Indian shamans of Valdivia, Chile, are also extremely powerful, however in wrong dosage also extremely dangerous and can cause severe delirium, hallucinations, and insanity, so this is not something to play around with, yet with the right knowledge it is effective and unique in its workings for the kundalini development. The tree is widely feared and respected in Chilli. Dosages are a closely guarded secret, and it is widely believed that a madness of any desired duration may be induced by a medicine women who knows how to measure the doses properly. It belongs to the nightshade family, Solanaceae.

Used intravaginal (but a Mapuche shaman also use it - all very secretive about how to adminiter it and how much)

Yes they can activate the kundalini but the toxic side effect or other unwanted by-products make them not friendly and useful.

Hawaiian baby woodrose (Argyreia nervosa)

Psychoactive constituent: Ergoline alkaloids (LSA)


Argyreia nervosa seeds contain various ergoline alkaloids such as ergine. A study reported stereoisomers of ergine to be found in the seeds at a concentration of 0.325% of dry weight. A much recent study reported presence of ergometrine, lysergol, lysergic acid and other alkaloids that contribute to its pharmacological effects.

Used by the Huna shamans of south America, it has similar effects but less potent compared to LSD.

Extremely powerful if taken raw and orally in amounts that exceed 15 seeds. Does give an upset stomach and it is toxic so better skip this one.



Psychoactive constituent: Tropane alkaloids

This brings up the dark side of energy and hypnosis used in black magic, Witchcraft (Wicca) and Odinism. A lot of references on mandrake can also be found in the bible when it was used as a love potion.

The alkaloids make the plant, in particular the root and leaves, poisonous, via anticholinergic, hallucinogenic, and hypnotic effects. Anticholinergic properties can lead to asphyxiation. Accidental poisoning is not uncommon. Ingesting mandrake root is likely to have other adverse effects such as vomiting and diarrhea.

The hypnotic effects are also the main reason why you should avoid this herb when developing the kundalini. Hypnosis actually makes you less aware instead of more aware in the overall picture !

Used intravaginal or consumed

Toé - Datura stramonium
(also known as Jimson weed seeds & Henbane, hell's bells, devil's trumpet, devil's weed, tolguacha, Jamestown weed, stinkweed, locoweed, pricklyburr, false castor oil plant, devil's cucumber, and thornapple.)


Psychoactive constituent: tropane alkaloids atropine, hyoscyamine, and scopolamine.

Datura has been used in traditional medicine to relieve asthma symptoms and as an analgesic during surgery or bonesetting. It is also a powerful hallucinogen (used by the native Indians) and deliriant, which is used entheogenically for the intense visions it produces. However, the tropane alkaloids responsible for both the medicinal and hallucinogenic properties are fatally toxic in only slightly higher amounts than the medicinal dosage, and careless use often results in hospitalizations and deaths.

Datura is used in Vodoo practices to create zombie like people because datura intoxication produces delirium, hallucination, hyperthermia, tachycardia, bizarre behavior, and severe mydriasis with resultant painful photophobia that can last several days. Pronounced amnesia is another commonly reported effect. The onset of symptoms generally occurs around 30 to 60 minutes after ingesting the herb. These symptoms generally last from 24 to 48 hours, but have been reported in some cases to last as long as two weeks.

The common name "datura" has its origins in India, where the sister species Datura metel is considered particularly sacred — believed to be a favorite of Shiva in Shaivism.

Similar if not even worse is the Blue mystic psychedelic phenethylamine otherwise known as the 7th heaven (2C-T-7). This is the most powerful and most dangerous psychedelic in the world - stay away from that.

Used intravaginal or consumed

Paiute Indian Tribe (using the Datura stramonium)

Chiric Sanango
(alos known as Brunfelsia Grandiflora, royal purple brunfelsia, yesterday-today-and-tomorrow, Bella Union, Borrachero, Chacruco, Chipiritsontinbaka, Chiricaspi Salvaje, Huha Hay, Kiss-me-quick, Manaka Root, Sanango, Picudo, Royal Purple Brunfelsia, Uhahai)

Not really a kundalini herb but still worth mentioning is the Chiric Sanango. It is much less intensive compared to the above and creates an excellent environment for emotional cleansing. But it is a nightshade and messes up your intestines that in turn will give you rashes.

Used by Amazonian tribes matses, ticunas and mayoruna.

A quote from someone who used Chiric Sanango for a week:

After I have done my first plant diet which was tobacco, I wanted to go further with another teacher. During an Ayahuasca reading, we found out that it would be very beneficial to ground my system as well as to strengthen my heart, stomach and mind connection. For the shaman, it was pretty clear that I need to work together with Chiric Sanango because of its characteristics. So I went in isolation for another 7 days of juice fasting and dieting Chiric Sanango. Straight after the first cup of medicine, I fell in love with this plant. It was a very warming and loving feeling which overcame me and as it was the case with tobacco before, I was in a higher state of pure being. A wonderful meditational state of being where you feel the love for the plant, the earth as your home and love for yourself. It’s truly a heart opening plant and connects your three brains (stomach, heart, brain). I was sitting for a long time in my hammock looking outside right into the jungle. Slowly but surely I got lost and this was the moment where everything and nothing came into my space. This sequence stayed for a good amount of time. In the evening, when I felt that the effects had faded away I enjoyed the atmosphere and my inner silence.

Same for the fish (yes even fish are used for their psychedelic properties such as the Rabbitfish, Mullets, Epinephelus corallicola and Kyphosus)

Psychoactive constituent: unknown


"A few reporters have eaten the dream fish and described their strange effects. The most famous user is Joe Roberts, a photographer for the National Geographic magazine. He broiled the dream fish in 1960. After eating the delicacy, he experienced intense hallucinations with a science-fiction theme that included futuristic vehicles, images of space exploration, and monuments marking humanity's first trips into space."
