Why Some People May Have Lukewarm Reactions After Taking Psychedelics

You have heard the wild stories from your friends about their psychedelic experiences and you have finally made up your mind to also “trip.” However, after taking the substance, rather than the rollercoaster you expected to go on, there is nothing but the sound of crickets in your head. What could have happened? Experts say one of the following factors may be responsible for your lackluster reaction to psychedelics.

Taking an Inadequate Dose

The stories of how powerful psychedelics can be may scare some people so much that when they decide to take these substances, they administer a dose that is so small that it cannot allow the psychedelic drug to take full effect. This may be the reason why someone expecting to be transported to a new dimension remains firmly rooted to earth while contemplating their problems.

Other Substances in Your Body

You can also have a muted psychedelic experience if your system has other substances which affect your nervous system as well as the chemicals responsible for processing psychedelics.

For example, antidepressants in the SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) class can interfere with the action of psychedelics. As a result, your psychedelic trip will be less intense and it may also be a lot shorter than it would have been if you hadn’t been taking those other substances.

How Your Body Metabolizes Drugs

Two individuals taking an identical dose of the same psychedelic drug can have psychedelic experiences that are totally different in terms of their duration and intensity. This difference is often the result of variations in the way each person’s body metabolizes psychedelics.

The specific areas of the brain that are activated (and the degree to which the neural connections are activated) will also determine what kind of psychedelic experience you have. For that reason, it isn’t possible for two individuals to have exactly the same experience, unless many factors have been adjusted for as your session is planned.

Your Intention

The reasons behind your use of psychedelics could also impact how those substances affect you. For example, if someone expects physical healing, they may be less likely to experience many of the psychological effects of the psychedelic substance since they will be more tuned to the bodily changes that are likely to occur. Additionally, people who have undergone trauma or are highly intellectual by nature may indulge in some degree of self-protection. This self-protection can block some of the psychological effects of the psychedelic from manifesting.

These factors, and others at play, could be the reason why many sector players, such as Cybin Corp., encourage people to take psychedelics under the supervision of an experienced health professional.
