Mescaline Detox And Treatment In British Columbia

Mescaline is a psychedelic hallucinogenic drug, which is obtained from small, spineless cactus, such as peyote or the san pedro cactus among others. Mescaline has a long history of being used among some First Nations tribes in Canada and Native Americans across the United States. Psychedelics or hallucinogenic drugs are substances that cause hallucinations and other sensory disturbances. One of the most commonly known hallucinogenic drugs is LSD, along with magic mushrooms and mescaline. Mescaline is not a widely used recreational drug in British Columbia, although there have been some news stories about First Nations tribes in the province using the drug for spiritual purposes.

During the 1970s, the Canadian government made peyote legal; however, mescaline is classified as a Schedule III drug under the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act. If anyone is found trafficking in a Schedule III substance, they could be charged with an indictable or summary offense. When hallucinogens are used, they stimulate or suppress the activity of the neurotransmitters they are similar to chemically. A chemical imbalance in the brain occurs and causes hallucinations and euphoria. The perceived effect of the hallucinations depends on the person. For example, the person’s mood, surroundings, social culture, and mental state determine what type of hallucinations will happen.

The effects of mescaline will either be pleasurable, frightening, or enlightening. It is impossible to predict how the drug will impact the user. Some of the common effects include visual hallucinations and an altered state of consciousness. Other effects include euphoria, dream-like state, slowed passage of time, laughter, and disturbances with sight, sound, and smell. Mescaline effects a drug user physically and psychologically. Some of the side effects include anxiety, fear, increased heart rate, dizziness, weakness, tremors, psychosis, panic, and paranoia. The unpredictable nature of mescaline does make the drug dangerous and increases the risk of injury. Some of the more severe side effects include amnesia and post hallucinogen flashbacks.

Mescaline is not physically addictive, but there is a risk of becoming psychologically addicted to the drug. Regular and long-term use of mescaline does cause a tolerance to develop, which requires higher doses. However, the drug user will likely not feel the same effects because of the tolerance they have developed for the drug. Recreational drug users in British Columbia will often mix different hallucinogenic drugs. The combination of drugs, such as with alcohol and prescription drugs, does increase the chances for more adverse side effects and even overdose. When treating a drug problem involving mescaline and other hallucinogenic drugs, there will have to be a detox process before treatment.

The withdrawal effects caused by mescaline are not dangerous, but it is crucial to monitor the psychological condition of the person before treatment. Residential and outpatient drug rehab centers in British Columbia will help treat psychedelic drug addiction. Most substance abuse problems involve more than one type of drug, which is why extensive drug treatment is crucial. Hallucinogens are also risky drugs to use if the drug user has a history of psychosis, mental disturbances, and other psychological problems. They are more at risk of developing long-term effects.
