Detrimental Intoxicant Consumption

Abusing Intoxicants is an Unhealthy Substitute for Nutrition 

Intoxicants are alcoholic beverages, tobacco, various drugs, poisonous plants or plant parts, and non-ingestible items which lack health benefits and have detrimental effects on wellness by their impairment of physical, emotional, and/or mental functions, while causing erratic behavior and mania.

In herbalism, herbs promote health and perceptions of wellbeing in alignment with supporting health, but intoxicant plants or plants parts create false perceptions of wellbeing, cause impairment, and induce varying degrees of mania.

Why are Intoxicants Bad for Health?

The body, emotions, and mind will not easily recognize the detrimental effects of intoxicants, because intoxicants have a direct effect on the nervous system from their ability to suppress toxic reactions by their depressant, anesthetic, narcotic, and/or psychedelic properties.

Commonly known intoxicants include plants and fungi, such as tobacco leaves and nicotine, amanita mushrooms, opium poppy and derivatives, magic mushrooms, including micro-dosing psilocybin, kratom leaves, belladonna berries and plant parts, and any use of hemp and cannabis flower and leaf, which includes full-spectrum extractions and all cannabinoid derivatives, such as THC and CBD.

Why are Intoxicants Abused?

Intoxicants are abused as incorrect substitutes to satisfy cravings of various types in the body, emotions, and mind, such as hunger for nutrition and nutrient dense foods or emotional connection, which leads to a recursive craving for more intoxicants.

Greater health and gaining wellness are not achieved from intoxicant use; although someone may feel euphoric on intoxicants, this is not the correct perception of well-being.

Intoxicants Impair Functioning of Body, Emotions, and Mind 

Intoxicants are wrongly consumed to impair the body, emotions, and/or mind, while altering perceptions of health by inducing states of painlessness, erratic thinking and behavior, and manic euphoria.

Intoxicants are often compulsively consumed for the manic euphoria they induce, known in slang as "getting high", for false feelings and perceptions of well-being.

Intoxicant abuse is common with quack medicine promoted and prescribed by the medical industry and approved by government agencies.

Types of Intoxicants and Intoxication Properties

  • Depressant
  • Anesthetic
  • Narcotic
  • Psychedelic

Depressant intoxicants reduce nervous system activity and produce effects of dizziness, drowsiness, sleepiness, sedation, lethargy, fatigue, and apathy. Depressants include alcoholic beverages; plants, such as belladonna; and plant parts, such as hemp and cannabis flowers and leaves, They reduce physical performance, lower emotional inhibition, retard mental cognition, delay or halt overall spiritual growth and development.


Anesthetic intoxicants interfere with nervous system impulses thereby inducing hyperactivity, manic euphoria, painlessness, decreased appetite, irritability, anxiety, confusion, mood disturbances, personality changes, erratic behavior and thinking, and paranoia. Anesthetics include poisonous plants and their derivatives such as tobacco and nicotine, coca and cocaine, betel nut, kratom, and hemp and cannabis flowers and leaves. The body builds a tolerance to these addictive poisons since body chemistry and nervous function adapts to their consumption which causes profound withdrawal.


Narcotic intoxicants inhibit nervous function, the five senses, and all forms of physical, emotional, and mental performance causing dizziness, drowsiness, sleepiness, sedation, lethargy, fatigue, reduced appetite, painlessness, apathy, and disordered thinking. They are found in plants, such as opium poppies and hemp and cannabis flowers and leaves. Long-term compulsive consumption causes personality changes, limited ability to learn and convey understanding, generalized paranoia, and varying degrees of insanity.


Psychedelic intoxicants paralyze nerves causing dizziness, clumsiness, fever or chills, vomiting, confusion, personality changes, hyperemotionality, delirium, mania, hallucinations, paranoia, erratic behavior and thinking and manic euphoria, panic, and fear. Psychedelics are found in fungi, such as ergot, magic mushrooms and amanitas; and plants, like peyote, salvia, ayahuasca, and hemp and cannabis flowers and leaves. Short-term use of psychedelics can cause reclusive behaviors, paranoia, and personality changes, whereas long-term use can cause improper learning of subjects, inability to understand one's enviroment and others, and psychosis concerning losing touch with reality.


Intoxicants Are Not Food, Herbs and Dietary Supplements

Intoxicants are not to be confused with food, herbs, and dietary supplements, since intoxicants lack viable nutrients and constituents due to the presence of intoxicants that are detrimental to health, healing, growth, and development.

Recreational Drug Use is Abuse

Recreational Drug Use Is Abuse 

Recreational drugs are a classification of non-ingestible dangerous petrochemicals, poisonous plants, and purified drug compounds that interfere with body, emotions, and/or mental functions. Recreational drugs include cocaine, steroids, opioids, psilocybin, LSD, marijuana, CBD, etc....

As with many drugs, recreational use of petrochemicals, plants, and drug compounds may be inappropriately used by someone as intoxicants to impair physical, emotional, and mental function.

Recreational drugs are incorrectly used, by self-medication, for pain relief or to incorrectly substitute the non-functionality of the body, including emotional and mental states, often with unsafe self-treatment of diagnosed diseases and conditions.

Self-medication and self-treatment (aka. treatment with self-care) are colloquial slang used by the medical industry and government agencies which refers to non-prescribed recreational use of drugs and recreational drug use. Someone recreationally uses drugs for unapproved uses and without a prescription as a false way to promote health, wellness, and well-being with quackery.

Drug Use Does Not Heal 

Someone, without appropriate guidance, may confuse physical, emotional, and mental impairment from recreational drugs and recreational drug use with pseudoscience concepts of mind-alteration, getting "high", and psychoactive quackery, but recreational drugs and recreational drug use only promote a wrong view and false feelings of well-being by impairing physical, emotional, and mental functioning.

For example: when someone uses opioids recreationally or recreational cannabinoids, such as CBD, the person may wrongly think that the drugs make them feel better and heal them, but instead the drugs are actually impairing bodily functions of pain signals or other signals from issues with non-functionality of the body, emotions and mind. 

Oftentimes, drugs of any kind may be incorrectly prescribed by a physician for recreational off-label use. Recreational use of drugs, known as self-medication, is wrongly endorsed by government agencies and the medical industry for inappropriate self-treatment, for example, by using pharmaceuticals wrongly and incorrectly medicating with cannabis (hemp seed is not to be confused with hemp and cannabis flowers, leaves, and cannabinoid derivatives).


Recreational Drug Use is Not Medicine

Some recreational drugs, such as opioids, may be alternately used correctly as approved drugs with a prescription for non-healing medicine within the pathology practices of allopathy and 'alternative medicine'. Contrarily, some medical drugs and intoxicants may be used recreationally for the intoxication effects of physical, emotional, and mental impairment, which is not medicine.

Sharing Drugs is Recreational Abuse 

Recreational drug use is not recommended for healing due to a lack of benefits for health, since recreational drugs are not food and dietary supplements.


Recreational Drugs are Not Herbalism

Although some recreational drugs, and intoxicants, and associated compounds may come from non-ingestible and/or poisonous plants, they are not herbs, and their uses are not found within herbalism.

Microdosing with Magic Mushrooms and Hemp and Cannabis Flowers and Leaves is Not Herbalism 

Recreational drugs have no benefits for supporting, maintaining, or promoting health, wellness, and well-being, because they lack nutrients and their unique plant constituents are ineffective, since they only impair physical, emotional, and mental functioning.


Recreational Drugs are Different than Non-Drug Intoxicants

Beer and Tobacco are Common Intoxicants Lacking Health Benefits 

Recreational drugs are not to be confused with intoxicants such as tobacco and alcoholic beverages, which have no medicinal value nor drug uses since they offer a false view of personal well-being and only impair physical, emotional, and mental functioning with an overall detriment to health.
