Have you ever gotten so high that the walls were shifting, colors changing, and you couldn’t keep track of the passage of time? Some of the effects of marijuana can be quite psychedelic, leading to time distortion and changes in perception. Some folks even claim to have hallucinated from weed.
On the lookout for some seriously potent, psychedelic weed strains? Then you’re in the right place! Let’s talk about how weed matches up to other trippy substances and which strains of weed are the trippiest.
Can Weed Produce Psychedelic Effects?
Psychedelic drugs are known to induce a feeling that can be described as “oceanic boundlessness” – a feeling of connectedness with the world and universe around you, combined with a sense of awe. Although usually associated with shrooms or acid, it has also been observed as an effect of high doses of cannabis. This phenomenon has even been covered in a scientific study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology in March 2021, Cannabis-induced oceanic boundlessness, which we discussed in an installment of our weekly cannabis news earlier this year.
The question remains: is cannabis a psychedelic? The short answer is no, it’s not classified as a psychedelic drug, like psilocybin or LSD. However, certain strains of cannabis at high doses can induce psychedelic effects like oceanic boundlessness, hallucinations, or another phenomenon called “dehabituation,” which is looking at something with a fresh perspective. Essentially, cannabis can provide eye-opening effects and experiences that seem to echo those of other substances.
