Teens looking for a fun party experience may choose to trip on hallucinogens like LSD or magic mushrooms. But just because many hallucinogens are plant-based, natural substances doesn’t mean they’re safe. Hallucinogenic drugs affect a user’s sensory perception and sensory interpretation. Under the influence of hallucinogens, a typical user can see, hear and feel things that aren’t there.
Dissociative drugs are also considered a subcategory of hallucinogens. Dissociative drug users will experience the typical symptoms of hallucinogens in addition to dissociative effects like feeling disconnected from their body or feeling unable to control their actions.
