1. Scopolamine (plant)
Also known as the Devils Breath and called the scariest drug in the world, this drug is a derivative from the nightshade plant found in the Northern Indian region of South America. This drug was often used by criminals due to its high toxicity level (one gram is believed to be able to kill up to 20 people), making it a very strong poison. However, it was believed that this drug was blown into the faces of victims, making them lose their self-control and becoming incapable of forming memories during the time they are under the influence of the drug. Gangs in Colombia used tactics where they used scopolamine as a way to convince victims to rob their own homes. Scopolamine is believed to turn its users or victims into zombies.
2. iDosing (digital drug)
Use of music to get high? No, seriously! It’s a thing. Since science has verified that different combinations of sounds at certain frequencies can help to induce different psychological states. That’s close enough to science for us. One of the popular tracks often used for i-dosing is “Gates of Hades,” which is easily available on YouTube for free. When users listen to these tracks, it alters their mental state, bringing about a “state of ecstasy.”
3.Purple Drank (cough syrup)
This drug was popularised in the 90’s hip hop culture when singers like Jay Z and Big Moe mentioned it in their songs. It is a mixture of sweets, cold medicine, soda water and is drunk due to cold medicine’s high codeine content, which is said to give the user a woozy feeling. Houston author Lance Scott Walker noted that the super-sweet combination of sod, Jolly Ranchers, and cough syrup provides a flavor and mouthfeel which stays on the tongue for an extended period. This phenomenon is often amusing for first-time users. However, this is a deadly drug that can also cause heart failure and can cause difficulty in breathing.
4. Stilton Cheese (cheese)
Stilton is an English cheese, which is produced in two varieties: Blue, which has a strong smell and taste, and the lesser-known White. Both of them have been granted as protected designation of origin by the European Commission, which requires that only cheese produced in the three counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire, and Nottinghamshire and made according to a strict code may be called Stilton. Oh yeah, and it causes you to have weird and vivid dreams. It isn’t some sort of urban legend. Having Stilton cheese before bedtime has shown to produce strange dreams. It is said that this cheese has a distinct smell.
5. Jenkem(human feces)
This drug is perhaps one of the most bizarre drugs on this list. Jenkem is a hallucinogenic drug that is made by using fermented human waste. It is mostly popular among Zambian children who obtain it by scraping sewer pipes and storing them in a bottle for a week or so. Stop all your charities and redirect all your funds to Zambia!! What’s worse than children huffing from a bottle full of your own shit. Also known as Butt Hash, this drug first popped up on the western radar when it became the center media scandal in 2006 after there was a report( which later was proven wrong) that American high-schoolers were using the drug. Yeah, right. You can’t even get American kids to eat vegetables!!
Flakka, which is also known as the Florida zombie drug, is a stimulant that has chemical make-up to the amphetamine-like drug found in bath salts. While the drug was originally manufactured in China, it later became popular in the United States. The user will feel an elevated heart rate, enhanced emotions, and strong hallucinations. This drug can cause permanent psychological damage due to it affecting the mood-regulating neurons that keep the mind’s sertraline and dopamine in check, as well as causing heart failure. There was a case of police linked to the infamous face-eating attack in Miami four years ago where later it was discovered that the zombie was actually on Flakka!
Known to be one of the most powerful hallucinogenic drugs on Earth! This drug is not for easily frightened people. Originally, this drug is a herbal concoction famously used by Amazonian shamans to connect to the spirit world. This stuff gets the job done! Some shamans and experienced users of ayahuasca advise against consuming ayahuasca when not in the presence of well-trained shamans.
Also known as Meduna’s Mixture, so named for its creator, Ladislas Meduna, is a simple mixture of Carbon Dioxide and Oxygen. Basically, it works by tricking one’s body into believing that it’s suffocating, which is caused by the sudden increase in Carbon Dioxide. It seems counter-intuitive to think that this would be anything short of terrifying, but users report a range of pleasant effects like vivid colors and a general calming sensation. It was also used by psychologists to assess a patient’s reaction to psychoactive substances.
Krokodil is Russia’s secret addiction since the heroine was not enough. It is believed that over one million Russians are addicted to the drug. The users of krokodil are attracted to the drug due to its low price. However, krokodil is considered more dangerous than heroin because it is often homemade, having ingredients like painkillers, iodine, lighter fluid, and industrial cleaning agents. This chemical make-up makes the drug highly dangerous and likely to cause gangrene, and eventually leads to rotting of the flesh!
10. Benzo Fury
While the drug hasn’t become particularly popular, it briefly entered the underground clubbing scene in the UK before its sale and import were banned. It is known as a research drug, as they are technically legal in some countries. Benzo Fury is one of the deadliest designer drugs that use legal loopholes to keep it safe in business. Users report their effects as powerful as drugs like MDA and Ecstasy!
