Natural herbal marijuana substitutes
Plant analogs of marijuana can be easily found in a dried form on the shelves of pharmacies or cut in nature. They have a psychoactive effect similar to cannabis in pure form or a mixture.
Hypericum (Hypéricum perforátum)
It has been used as an antidepressant for many years. Increased effectiveness can be achieved by combining it with other herbs. It is used in the treatment of inflammatory processes, open wounds, and skin diseases. Today you can find a tablet form in pharmacies. However, a combination of antidepressants, opioids, and CNS stimulants may lead to serotonin intoxication.
Damiana (Turnera diffusa)
The plant is widely spread in the Americas as well as in the Caribbean. The plant has a pleasant scent similar to that of chamomile and is a powerful aphrodisiac (as are some aphrodisiac cannabis strains). For thousands of years, South American aborigines have used their flowers for their pleasure. New research has shown that damiana can be used as a cure for erectile dysfunction. Like cannabis, it normalizes hormone levels, improves mood, stimulates appetite, and is an antidepressant.
Blue lotus (Nymphaea caerulea)
Distributed in the Nile Delta in Egypt, India, and parts of Africa and Asia. It has been an essential attribute of religious rituals for thousands of years. Flowers are dried and brewed like tea or make the alcoholic tincture. Leaves are smoked. This plant, like marijuana, has a sedative effect (calming and soothing) and a mild psychoactive effect. However, this jug contains an alkaloid which can lead to catalepsy (tonic tension of all muscles as in epilepsy or Parkinson’s disease).
Wild dagga (Leonotis Leonurus)
It’s found in South Africa. The effect of the plant is similar to that of marijuana – a mild sedative effect and euphoria. Flowers are brewed like tea or smoked. This helps in neurological pains and inflammations. Leonurine alkaloid fights streptococcal infection. Dagga has also been used in the past as a cure for arthritis, eczema, and other ailments. However, the plant can cause hypoglycemia, nausea, and disorientation in space.
There are other analogs of cannabis, which have no side effects or negative effects at all, and at the same time increase the number of cannabinoids. These include cold showers and physical exercise. Long-term studies have shown that CB1 and CB2 are active in this case, while anandamide is produced to the maximum extent possible.
