1. Psilocybe Mushrooms and OCD, Cluster Headaches and Depression

1. Psilocybe Mushrooms and OCD, Cluster Headaches and Depression

Also known as Magic Mushrooms, and Shrooms popularly, they have been known to reduce the symptoms while in influence, especially that of OCD. But their side effects include anxiety, confusion, incoherence in thoughts and behaviour, paranoia and panic attacks.

2. MDMA (Ecsatsy) and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

2. MDMA (Ecsatsy) and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

MDMA was originally promoted as the cure for PTSD and was effective in the sense that it got you high and hence no stress. Although it's prolonged use, include serotonergic neurotoxicity, memory problems, and other psychobiological problems.

3. LSD and Alcoholism

3. LSD and Alcoholism

Alcoholism can be treated for a short term with reducing effects and ever increasing side effects inclusive of hallucinations, mental incoherence and a long list of crappy stuff.

4. Ketamine and Depression

4. Ketamine and Depression

To tell the truth, it is actually a horse tranquilizer, and thus too strong for humans. It is often used as chemical handcuffs, and unbreakable. It was studied as the treatment for depression, and sure one can't be depressed if one is practically unconscious.

5. Cocaine and constipation, seriously?

5. Cocaine and constipation, seriously?

Stupid, as it may sound, it was medically proven to cure constipation, however, they came to that. And of course, the side effects are a long list of crappy stuff, including premature aging of the skin.

6. Marijuana and everything

6. Marijuana and everything

Well, seemingly the only narcotic with so many uses as medicine for so many mental and physical conditions, with research going on over inhibition of cancers as well. Side effects are next to nothing, except prolonged and continuous high dose use, I am talking years here, can lead to memory loss, hallucinations, incoherent mental behaviour.

Loved this? Spread it out then
