This year was a real revelation for all the fans of psychoactive substances. Netherlands research laboratories found out some curious thing. As you might know, there are New Psychoactive Substances (NPS), a series of drugs that have hallucinogenic effects - NBOMes, that contain an N-methoxybenzyl group. NBOMes can be in the form of blotting paper (similar to LSD) with images and logos from popular culture, clear liquid, white powder or a pill. NBOMes have a very bitter taste whereas LSD has no taste. Most forms of NBOMe are inactive if swallowed, and the most common methods of taking them are under the tongue, held in the cheek or snorted.
In spite of the fact that in 2016 the number of NBOMe psychonauts increased in 25%, principally among young people, the point is that there are many unpleasant side effects. Typical doses will allow hallucinations and euphoria and can last for more than 12 hours, open and closed eye visuals, euphoria, change in perception of time. Harmful side affects include delirium, aggressive behaviour, self-harm, and paranoia. Besides, a person can have a strong yawning, especially when coming up, bruxism, feel sickness and might even vomit.
The effects of mixing an NBOMe with other drugs, including alcohol, prescription medication and over-the-counter medicines are not very well known. But solution has been found unexpectedly, in a medicine, that is sold almost always strictly on prescription. That was a muscule relaxer, Baclofen, which is used to help relax certain muscles in a body. It relieves the spasms, cramping, and tightness of muscles caused by medical problems such as multiple sclerosis or certain injuries to the spine. Among psychonauts Baclofen is known as a drug with euphoric and hallucinogenic psychodelic effects, it is taking in recreational doses.
Researchers from the top level laboratory in Amsterdam performed numerous experiments on a thousand human volunteers and came to a conclusion, that unpleasant side effects of NBOMe can be reduced with Baclofen. You can see some results on the charts. Nowdays this research is going on, so all indifferent people will ba able to find some credible information on NBOMes.
