    Hi,
    I found this plant from
    Potential and Confirmed Psychedelics and in spring, it grows everywhere in my homeland.
    Can it produce a pleasent intoxication?
    Anyone experienced with this plant?

    I think that all over Europe.
    I know it's poisonous but as I said in my first post, I found it from this Potential And Confirmed Psychedelics list, so I asked from here.

    Nothing on erowid, which would make me say nope. They'd at least have a mention or two I'd think.





    Peace,

    Often the word "posionous" or "toxic" is used in when the plant is know to be pshchoactive, it is an attempt to discourge use. I have an herb book by Rodells and it lists Cannabis as "toxic" with a red skull and crossbones. I am only suggesting that plants in some books with the "posionous" or "toxic" lables may be the ones worth doing some more research on(reading). Keep digging


    Here is a good start though. . .

    I have no idea why C. majalis is listed on a site for psychoactive
    plant users. While it is of course completely legal, its active
    ingredients are so-called cardiac glycosides (i.e. convallotoxin).
    These digitalis-like toxins won't make you high, but instead cause
    (sometimes fatal) irregularities in heart rhythm.
