The word hallucinogens is on everyone’s lips these days — but the question of their legal status still remains unknown.
Are there legal hallucinogens that serve as positive mental health treatment and provide a psychedelic trip? We divulge.
Psilocybin’s A Legal Hallucinogen In Some States
Psilocybin has proven its incredible effect on those dealing with anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders, and treatment-resistant depression.
Its legal status differs on the federal and state levels. Federally, it’s classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act.
Ketamine As A Legal Hallucinogen Is Tricky
On the state level, in addition to the nasal spray treatment, ketamine clinics nationwide also provide ketamine IV infusions.
They aren’t regulated or approved by the FDA, but they are also not specifically prohibited — meaning they aren’t deemed illegal.
MDMA Therapy Is Gaining Traction
Another interesting hallucinogen, MDMA, also known as ecstasy, has a bit of a party-drug reputation.
Ibogaine’s Effectiveness Continues To Shine
Another psychedelic classified as a Schedule I substance, ibogaine is also illegal on the federal level.
As a psychedelic that naturally occurs in the West African shrub iboga, ibogaine therapy has shown success for those struggling with addiction.
