Peruvian Torch is the oldest known hallucinogenic substance, dating from before the time of Christ. To the ancients, these “waking dreams” were voices from their gods or the spirit world, hence becoming a centerpiece for sacred rituals, a means to explain the unexplainable, and a mainstay of medicine bags.
Like most psychedelic hallucinogens, it is not physically addictive but can induce severe vomiting and nausea, which adds an important part to traditional Native-American or Shaman ceremonies as it is considered cleansing.
Peruvian Torch belongs to a family of compounds known as phenethylamines, making it quite distinct from the other major psychedelics, such as LSD and psilocybin, which belong to the indole family.
Effects of Peruvian Torch
Peruvian Torch induces an altered state of consciousness – with altered thinking and changes in time perception – often described as enjoyable and illuminating. There are prominent changes in visual perceptions with visual distortions and hallucinations which offer a beneficial exploration of the psyche for psychospiritual healing and for end-of-life exploration.
This psychedelic is very gentle psychedelic; it’s very warm, grounded and emotionally freeing. It is also known to improve symptoms of anxiety, headache, fatigue, and depression.
