A Comprehensive List Of Psychoactive Plants

Table of Contents
Table of Contents

Many plant species have been consumed by humans for the psychoactive effects they produce. These effects can vary as some psychoactive compounds affect mood and cognitive behavior, while others alter consciousness and have hallucinogenic effects. The majority of these plants are used all over the world as psychoactive drugs for medicinal, religious, or recreational purposes.

Let’s start this list with some of the most commonly used psychoactive plants and then move to the lesser-known ones.

Well-Known Psychoactive Plants List

Coca (Erythroxylum coca)

Coca is a shrub that is commonly found in the tropical climate of Peru, Bolivia, and Ecuador. The coca leaves contain the alkaloid cocaine and have been chewed by native Americans of Peru and Bolivia for centuries. It is believed that they used this plant in order to withstand hard working conditions, hunger, and thirst. Coca leaves can also be processed into a white crystalline powder, better known as cocaine. When ingested in small amounts cocaine produces feelings of euphoria and well-being with decreased appetite, fatigue, and improved mental alertness. Cocaine abuse, which is a huge drug problem thought much of the 20th and 21st centuries grew alarmingly. Cocaine is responsible for an increased proportion of drug-related deaths.

Cannabis (Cannabis sativa)

Cannabis is grown all over the world and it’s probably the most widespread psychoactive plant. Best known for its recognizable leaves, it has been used in religious practices in India and Africa for centuries. The active ingredient tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is most concentrated in flowers of female plants. The flowers are often dried and crushed so that they can be smoked out of pipes or joints, also they can be added to foods and beverages. The cannabis effects are mostly psychological, followed by mild euphoria.

Salvia (Salvia divinorum)

Salvia divinorum, also known as Sage of the Diviners, is a member of the mint family, native to Mexico. The plant is hallucinogenic and has historically been used by shamans to achieve elevated states of consciousness. Salvia is not regulated under the Controlled Substances Act, meaning that it’s legal in most parts of the United States. The leaves are mostly smoked or eaten. The active compound in salvia is salvinorin A, which causes short-lived hallucinations, changes in mood, and body sensations followed by feelings of detachment.

Betel nut (Areca catechu)

This plant is not so well known in the west, however, betel chewing is the habit of an estimated one-tenth of the world’s population and it is considered to be the fourth most commonly used psychoactive drug in the world, following alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine. Betel nuts are cultivated in India, Thailand, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Malaysia. In order to chew betel quids, a small piece of the betel nut is wrapped in a leaf of the unrelated betel pepper plant as well as a slaked lime pellet. Chewing this plant releases a number of alkaloids that cause a mild euphoria. Regular users often have red-stained lips and teeth. This practice is important in many cultural traditions in Southeast Asia, however, it is considered to be an addictive practice that can lead to serious health problems such as oral cancer.

Opium Poppy (Papaver somniferum)

Opium poppy, native to Turkey, is nowadays a common plant decorating many gardens in the United States. When the unripe seed capsules are cut, they produce milky white latex which is the source of raw opium, which can be later processed into morphine, codeine, and heroin. Known as opiates, these drugs affect the brain and spinal cord. Opium relieves pain, alleviates anxiety, and induces relaxation and sedation. Sometimes it may contribute to a state of euphoria or improved mood. Physiological effects of opioids include a slowing of heart rate and respiration, suppression of cough reflex, and relaxation of gastrointestinal smooth muscles.

Hawaiian Baby Woodrose (Argyreia nervosa)

Hawaiian baby Woodrose seeds contain a psychedelic compound called D-lysergic acid amide, commonly known as LSA. A few hallucinogenic plants contain this compound. The effects are described to be similar to LSD. Visual and auditory hallucinations, followed by a distorted sense of time and space.

Peyote Cactus (Lophophora williamsii)

Native Americans who ritually use peyote cactus, like most other hallucinogens, claim that the drug promotes morality and ethical behavior among them. Peyote is a well-known member of psychedelic plants and similarly to other psychedelics, it is not considered to be addictive.

Ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi)

Ayahuasca is a South American native plant, its vines are used as the primary ingredient for a psychoactive drink with the same name. The active ingredient in ayahuasca is DMT which is found in most parts of the plant, but it’s believed that DMT in leaves is most concentrated. This plant has great cultural value to a number of Amazonian people, it has been popularized among tourists that seek “spiritual awakening”. Consumption of this plant is commonly followed by vomiting or diarrhea.

Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum)

Tobacco is native to both South and North America. This psychoactive plant produces distinctive large sticky leaves where nicotine, an active ingredient in tobacco, is concentrated the most. It has a unique biphasic psychoactive effect: when inhaled in short puffs, this drug acts as a stimulant, while when smoked in long drags, it acts as a sedative. Therefore, smoking can at times feel invigorating and at other times seem to block stressful stimuli. Nicotine, when ingested in large doses, is a toxic poison that causes vomiting, nausea, headaches, stomach pains, convulsions, and even death in severe cases. Regular consumption of tobacco is linked to numerous health problems, including cancer and emphysema.

Jimsonweed (Datura stramonium)

Jimson weed or Datura as some people like to call it grows throughout much of North America, South America, and Europe. It is an annual plant with spiky seed pods and white tubular flowers. The seeds and leaves contain potent tropane alkaloids hyoscyamine and hyoscine that cause deliriant effects. It has been used by numerous indigenous peoples as it allegedly produces intense spiritual visions. However, this plant is highly dangerous and it can easily have fatal results. Users often report terrifying deliriant hallucinations and may experience prolonged side effects such as blurred vision.

Wild Lettuce (Lactuca virosa)

Wild lettuce is a specie that grows in Pakistan, India, and Australia. It produces a milky liquid called lactucarium. It contains two psychoactive compounds lactucin and lactucopicrin. These compounds have sedative, analgetic, and slightly euphoric effects when consumed. Wild lettuce can produce intense auditory hallucinations, it may also cause side effects such as dizziness and anxiety.

Coffee (Coffea)

Coffea is a genus of flowering plants in the family Rubiaceae. It’s beans are used to make Coffee, one of the most popular and widespread used psychoactive beverage in the world. The fruits and the seeds, contain a large quantity of caffeine. The effects of this plants are mildly euphoric, and energizing as it stimulates the nervous system. However in high doses caffeine causes numerous side effects such as rapid heart beat, insomnia, dehydration, anxiety, headaches and dizziness.

Blue Lotus

Recent studies suggest that blue lotus has psychedelic properties, and may have been used as a sacrament among ancient Egyptians and certain South American cultures. Doses of 5 to 10 grams of this gorgeous flowers induces slight stimulation, shifts in thought processes, and enhanced visual perception with mild closed-eye visuals. In heavier doses it produces relaxing and sedative effects.

What Are Psychoactive Alkaloids?

Psychoactive alkaloids are naturally occurring organic nitrogen-containing bases. They have diverse and important physiological effects on humans and other mammals. Some of the best-known alkaloids include morphine, ephedrine, nicotine, tryptamine, cannabinoids, cocaine, and caffeine. Some plants can even be dangerous, for instance, in Silver maple tree indole alkaloid gramine was found which is extremely toxic, therefore not all alkaloids are safe.

Alkaloids are found primarily in plants and are common in certain families of flowering plants. As many as one-fourth of higher plants are estimated to contain alkaloids, of which several thousand types have been identified. Generally speaking, given species contain only a few different types of alkaloids. However, there are exceptions to this rule, as both opium poppy and ergot fungus contains more than 30 different types of alkaloids.

DMT Plants

For hundreds of years, shamanic traditions have ingested DMT (N, N-Dimethyltryptamine) as a psychedelic molecule for achieving altered states of consciousness. Many plant species naturally contain DMT, though not in amounts large enough to cause psychoactive effects if ingested or smoked.

There are theories that human body stores DMT in the pineal gland of the brain, and upon death high doses of DMT are released. It is possible that certain situations such as near-death experiences produce effects similar to DMT.

DMT can be extracted from plants in order to make pure DMT crystals, which are most of the time smoked for immediate effects.

Depending on where you live, you can legally purchase plants containing DMT. If you’re not using the plants to extract DMT or to make psychedelic substances like ayahuasca, it’s sometimes legal to buy DMT-containing plants.

How Are DMT-Containing Plants Used?

Specific properties of DMT-containing plants will define the best way to use them. Some plants, like yopo seeds, are best when used in a traditional manner. Other species like chaliponga and P. viridis, are great components when used in ayahuasca brews. Some other plants like Chaliponga and P. viridis can also be used in making changa, a synergistic herbal smoking blend, while other plants like Mimosa hostilis are ideal for extracting DMT.

Ingesting psychoactive plants that contain DMT without preparation is unlikely to produce much of a psychedelic experience. This is due to the body breaking down DMT relatively quickly and the quantities of DMT in hallucinogenic plants are relatively small. However, when combined with MAOI the strength of DMT will greatly increase. For instance, the plant Peganum harmala contains something called harmala alkaloids which are its primary psychoactive compounds, which have slightly hallucinogenic properties on their own. Harmala is considered a medicinal plant, as its alkaloids function as monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs).

Plant-derived DMT can be used in changas, or smoked on its own.

Smoking pure DMT crystal on its own can produce a short-lived and somewhat overwhelming experience. It also requires more careful smoking techniques, and preferably additional equipment, to avoid overheating the crystal (which destroys the DMT). A bong or vaporizer is usually used for this purpose.

Changa is simply made by dissolving the extracted DMT into a solvent, soaking it in a plant mixture, and smoking it once it’s completely dry. It can be smoked with a bong, pipe or rolled into a joint.

List of Psychoactive Plants That Are Legal

There’s a difference between hallucinogenic and psychoactive plants. Hallucinogenic plants inspire changes in visual and auditory perception, most of the time they are able to completely shift one’s reality. The hallucinogenic plant is typically classified as an entheogen, a plant that produces profound spiritual experiences. Almost all of the most potent hallucinogenic plants are illegal including ayahuasca, peyote, and magic mushrooms. However, a few hallucinogenic plants remain unregulated.


This common household spice may produce more profound effects than most people might expect. Myristicin is the psychoactive compound in nutmeg, which shares similar properties with mescaline, the primary active substance in peyote. Large doses of nutmeg can cause hallucinations, dizziness, and intoxication. However, there are side effects of taking such high doses of nutmeg such as nausea, diarrhea, and gastrointestinal distress. Also, there are some other plants from the nutmeg family that may cause similar effects such as several Virola species.


The root of the mandrake plant is hallucinogenic, but it’s not recommended to consume. The long thick shaped roots are filled with psychoactive alkaloids. Eating the root will cause sleepiness and hypnotic hallucinations, which can seem very appealing, however, it can also be very dangerous as it may induce asphyxiation and even coma.

Morning Glory

There are many different types of morning glories that are considered to be psychoactive plants, however, it is believed that the strain commonly known as “heavenly blue” is the most potent. The morning glory seeds contain ergoline alkaloids such as d-lysergic acid amide (LSA) and other alkaloids. The Seeds of Ipomoea tricolor and Turbina corymbosa are mostly used as a psychedelic. It is believed that the effects of LSA are similar to the effects of LSD when taken in large doses. Seeds are harvested from the mature plant, then crushed and most of the time extracted with cold water, to make a potent psychedelic drink.

Conclusion – Psychoactive Plants List

As you can see there are many psychedelic plants on our beautiful planet. The psychoactive properties differ from plant to plant as not all alkaloids are the same. However, some psychoactive plants share the same active components such as DMT or a 5-MeO-DMT. These psychoactive plants don’t necessarily have to be from the same family or genus. Most of the time DMT is found in the bark, leaves, and roots, and many of them have been used as medicinal plants traditionally among many different cultures.

There are many common household plants like nutmeg, morning glory, and mandrake that have psychoactive properties. These legal plants can be used as ornaments for your garden or home, but extracting their active ingredients may be illegal depending on where you live.

Many of these majestic plants such as ayahuasca, peyote, cannabis, and salvia have traditionally been used by indigenous groups for spiritual rituals. Blue lotus, coca, opium poppy, and many other plants have also been used as a natural medicine in various cultures. Other plants are considered part of a tradition in many civilizations across the world such as betel nut, coffee, and tobacco. Without a doubt these special plants have a rich history and a bright future for humankind.
