Natural Ways to Get High
I remember the first time I learned about natural ways to achieve a euphoric high. I was probably ten years old and had just picked up a copy of a book, the name of name of which is not worth mentioning here. The book included all kinds strange methods ranging from smoking dried banana peel to extracting the essence of nutmeg. Yes – apparently both of those can get you high, although my own personal results were pretty limited with these two methods. Since that time, I’ve grown up quite a bit, but my interest in mind-altering substances has only grown.
The problem with most ways to get high is that they are against the law. However, there are still a number of natural euphoriants that can alter your consciousness without putting you on the wrong side of the law. So, for the purpose of this article, we’ll be focusing on legal ways to get high or euphoric at home. Now that we’re talking about euphoria though, I should qualify this a bit as not all mind altering herbs or methods produce euphoria. While some are euphoric, others are more stimulating or dissociative.
Most legal herbs that get you high tend to be euphoric. Euphoria is defined as a feeling of intense excitement or happiness. Euphoria is usually induced through brain chemistry. Any mind-altering drug, whether it be natural or not, creates a chemical reaction in your brain. This chemical reaction can create stimulation, depression, happiness, sadness and euphoria. This often happens through the release of dopamine or serotonin – although there are certainly other chemicals in your brain that can also elicit these kinds of responses.
Having experimented with many different legal substances, I’ve experienced a wide range of responses by my mind and body. Let’s take a look at a few common natural ways to get high and induce euphoria. While I can’t describe any of the methods below as inducing an intense feeling of happiness, most of the ones that I’ve tried due give a subtle sense of relaxation.

natural stimulants and over the counter alternatives to Adderall
Adderall is one the most well-known stimulant pharmaceuticals and widely talked about stimulant medications.

Caffeine is probably the most well known stimulant of all time. Caffeine is naturally occurring in coffee and tea and is added to many drinks and foods. While it’s not nearly as strong as adderall (nor does it have as many side effects), caffeine is a very commonly used stimulant and wakefulness agent. Similar to adderall, caffeine is often used to pull all-nighters and finish deadlines for school or work.
Yerba Mate has drastically increased in popularity over the past couple of decades. Once largely considered a regional specialty in parts of south of america, Yerba Mate has caught on as a popular beverage with global appeal. Not only does yerba mate contain caffeine, but it also has its own unique stimulating chemical called mateine that makes it a great addition to caffeine by itself.
