Drugs are substances that can change the human consciousness in a very unusual way. Mankind has long been familiar with this phenomenon. If before the drugs were natural natural components – herbs, nuts, grains, parts of animals, now this product is heavily manufactured by the chemical industry.
In the pursuit of high, drug addicts are ready for anything – not only for a crime, but for inventions. It is not accidental that the number of intoxicants is quite large, and some of them are so exotic that no one could see special properties in them.
And although some assure that drugs are in most ways an easy way to relax, the use of some of them has a terrible effect on a person’s life, his health. We will talk about the most unusual drugs, which stand out not only by their origin, but also by their impact on humans.
It turns out that sleepwalking can be caused artificially, with the help of tablets. Such a medicine is called zolpidem. It has many side effects, including nausea, walking in a dream and even driving in this state of vehicles. Another name for the drug is ambien. Initially, it was developed as a sleeping pill, alternative to valium. Usually the medicine works without any problems – patients drink a pill at night, and wake up in the morning without any unusual feelings and all the more without incident. But in some people this medicine causes unusual behavioral disorders – strange actions occur during sleep. Sometimes, after taking zolpidem, some woke up, crashing into something in their car. An even more unusual story occurred with spouses from Australia, who both took this medicine. His wife had a hallucination – she seemed to be soaring above the bed. Then the woman vomited badly. And my husband picked up a spatula in the house to clean up after her. Having woken up, the spouses at first decided that they had a terrible dream. But looking around, they realized that everything was real.
This drug is widely used by Colombian criminals, but not as a means of earning, but as a weapon. The fact is that bandits are blowing scopolamine to their enemies in person, which can cause amnesia and susceptibility to suggestion from the outside. Such properties are possessed by this powerful narcotic substance. The scary enough is a fairly easy possibility of using scopolamine. Criminals simply blow powder into the victim’s face, after which they themselves help to rob their home and issue all the secrets of the bank account. And the next morning, the victim does not remember anything about what happened to her. There were even rumors that people in America were trying to befuddled by touching them with business cards soaked in this drug. However, this remained at the level of conjecture. It’s good that such a drug is used in Colombia alone.
It turns out that a hallucinogen is hidden in the store room of many housewives. They are nutmeg, combining nutritional value with narcotic possibilities. High doses of nutmeg lead to hallucinations. As a result, those who do not have funds for drugs or who are looking for a way to legally use intoxicants, just take large doses of this common spice. But the effect of nutmeg is generally unpleasant and it gives a sense of separation from reality, and not just psychedelic pictures. A person does not just see unusual images, but also feels anxiety, feeling his quick death. Yes, and the physical effects of taking such a remedy are also present – the heart begins to beat more often, there is nausea, dry mouth, problems with urination. Adding this spice to food, we obviously do not count on such effects. HGH.
As the name of this substance implies, it allows a person to grow. Some athletes believe that STG can help to recover from training.Do not confuse the experimenters and the lack of evidence base to this. But this substance can lead to extremely negative side effects, turning a person into a real villain from comics. One of the most significant deviations is acromegaly. The disease manifests itself in the thickening of the skin, swelling of the hands and feet. The jaw as if advanced forward, becoming pronounced. In addition, there are also crevices between the teeth. So in the pursuit of athletic achievements, some are willing to risk becoming like an outright villain. By the way, actor Richard Keel, who played the villain in a pair of James Bond films, just suffered from such a disease. Until recently, the unreasonable adoption of growth hormone threatened even more terrible consequences. The fact is that this substance was obtained from the bodies of dead people. It was not just immoral, but also led to frequent cases of Kreuzfeldt-Jakob disease, which with its symptoms resembled mad cow disease.
Bromo dragonfly (Bromo-dragonFLY).
This drug is an enhanced version of all known LSD. Its distinctive feature is a terrible psychedelic trip that can last for three days. And it got its name because of an unusual molecular structure, which looks like a dragonfly. Bromo-dragonfly is often sold under the guise of conventional LSD, this drug is also active in its low doses. And if from the LSD trip lasts several hours, in this case it stretches for several days and is accompanied by a lot of terrible side effects. These include vascular obstruction, spasms, and seizures. Sometimes it is necessary to amputate limbs for the sake of saving a person’s life. The impact of this drug is described as a “trip to hell and back”. Interestingly, Bromo-dragonFLY is explicitly banned only in Sweden and Denmark. In other countries, it can be purchased in online stores under the guise of an experimental chemical, not for internal use. But does this stop drug addicts? But the formula of the substance is so complex that it can not be made by hand.
This medicine, as side effects, causes depression and suicidal tendencies. But in fact initially rimonabant was intended to dull the feeling of hunger. Marijuana, in addition to its intoxicating effects, causes people to have a strong appetite. Scientists decided to create a drug with the opposite effect, which would dull the hunger. The principle of action of rimonabant is the effect on the same areas of the brain as in marijuana, only with the opposite effect. The plan was really successful, the medicine was registered as a remedy in the fight against obesity. Studies have shown that the opposite of marijuana manifested itself in other factors. Thanks to this medicine, short-term memory and motility of spermatozoa improved in experimental animals. But unexpectedly showed strong side effects. Those who have ever smoked marijuana know that the tightening causes a smile on their face. “Grass” allows people to feel happy. And rimonabant had the opposite effect – after his admission people plunged into depression and began to think about taking their lives.
This drug is called super-heroin, because it is five thousand times stronger than it. Overdose is possible even from simple contact of the substance with the human skin. But heroin is known for its destructive power, bringing many sufferings and a feeling of despair. Is not it strange after that that scientists decided to create a drug many times more powerful? By its action, etorphine resembles morphine and heroin. But among fans of drugs, this has not become popular. The fact is that etorphine is so strong that the result of its impact is only death. And the drug is used as a sedative for large animals. Only one gram of the substance is enough to put hundreds of three-ton elephants to sleep.But a person should be careful – after all, when using a contact with the skin of a drug, it can be fatal. That’s why next to the one who injects the animal, there is always an assistant with an antidote in case of unforeseen circumstances.
It turned out that the medicine for fighting obesity also has many peculiar features. Dinitrophenol really knows how to burn fats, but it does it so well that the patient jumps to a temperature and literally burns from the inside out. A drug called DNP or 2,4-Dinitrophenol allows the body to re-use energy in a new way. In normal mode, it is formed from food and is used to work the heart, muscles, internal organs. If an excess of energy is formed in the body, it is transformed into fat deposits on the buttocks and abdomen. The body seems to store the reserves, preparing for the moment when the energy is needed, and food for its production will be missed. In the 1930s people came up with a new medicine, DNF. It had to fight obesity through a new approach to the use of energy by the body. Now it was possible to lie on the couch and eat sweet and fat, and the body at the same time will intensively expend energy. It sounds tempting, but only dinitrophenol had a big flaw. Already in 1938 the medicine was removed from the sale. After all, it turned out that people literally welded from the inside because of the increased temperature. There was also an acceleration of the heartbeat, increased sweating, which in the complex often caused death. It’s amazing, but today there is a demand for this medicine – it is available on the Internet. Wanting to lose weight without difficulty, people are ready even to risk their lives.
This unusually strong artificial drug, DMHP, was coined by the US military. The substance was so effective that a dose of 1 milligram deprives the soldiers of the ability to do anything for three days. In the 1950s and 1970s, the US military worked on a very cheerful Edgewood Arsenal project. The army was trying to find new, unusual weapons. To do this, and carried out research in which soldiers were given different drugs and chemicals. Then the scientists observed the reaction of the experimental, recording all their actions. One of the substances proposed for study was the super-strong synthetic marijuana DMHP. Its symptoms are akin to what appears after the use of a natural remedy. People’s eyes blushed, apathy and slowness came, and appetite woke up. It turned out that a dose of 0.2 thousand grams is enough for a person to start laughing simply from the sight of their shoes. A dose of a milligram put the soldier out of action for three days. According to research reports, an ideal way was found to deprive the opponent of the ability to resist without killing him. After all, you could just spread the drug over your enemies, and within an hour you can take the enemy’s position without any resistance. The soldiers will at this time be in full swing and laugh at each other. And in the 1970s it turned out that even more advanced types of chemical weapons appeared and the development of this direction was suspended.
This is the name of the Russian version of heroin. Its distinctive feature is the literal eating of the flesh of the addict. The substance itself is very cheap at manufacturing. The effect is so strong that it is comparable in effect to heroin. That’s just one of the side effects is the destruction of the flesh. The way to replace heroin with “crocodile” appeared in Russia, as a cheap and simple way to get a portion of buzz. In the pharmacy you can buy several painkillers, then with the help of chemicals available again, dezomorphine is prepared, similar to its effect on heroin. One can understand how much combination of drugs, dishwashing liquid and lighter fluid is dangerous for internal use. The brown slurry obtained on their basis is called “crocodile”.This name appeared due to the fact that the abusers of this drug over time, the skin looks like a crocodile. People are literally covered with scales, which are the result of toxic damage to the flesh. Regular use of this drug leads to a terrible rot of flesh, up to the bone, and subsequent death.
In South America, bufo marinus frogs live, which are a narcotic drug. Somehow the person learned that after licking these frogs one can experience a hallucinogenic effect. It can be compared with the impact of LSD. It turns out that in the glands of toads contains bufotenin, which is a natural hallucinogen. People have learned to use the “talents” of frogs in a different way. The frog is caught, the skin is removed from it and dried. This material is then used as raw material for “special” cigarettes. But fans of such a natural drug should be careful, because bufotenin causes only a slight intoxication and a small euphoria, but the poison from the toad frog can lead to cardiac arrest and death of a person.
This herb grows in India, Arabia, Somalia and Sri Lanka. People have long noticed that the leaves of this plant have a narcotic effect. The scientists confirmed this by finding a cathinon in the khat. This chemical in its structure and effects resembles amphetamine. Chewing the leaves of khat is a traditional occupation in the Middle East and East Africa. For the Arabs, the tradition is so old and durable, as for Europeans, the use of coffee. In addition, the low price of the drug is also attractive – a bunch of plants costs only 4 cents. But the chewing of leaves reduces fatigue and reduces appetite. However, the drug has its own hidden sides. Regular use of it leads to sleep disorders, digestion, frequent headaches. Chewing khat can cause oral cancer, and exposure to the nervous system can lead to depression. Problems can arise if the plant has been treated with pesticides.
