There are two types of cannabinoids: THC and CBD. THC has strong psychoactive effects, whereas CBD is thought to have an anti-psychoactive effects.

Hallucinogens are drugs that alter the thinking processes and the perception of those who take them. These perceptions are altered in such a manner that leads to significant distortions and fragmentations of reality. Hallucinogens have the ability to affect one’s perceptions in a vastly different manner than many other drugs. Popularly, the influence of these drugs represents experiences of new and even expanded consciousness. For example, some individuals may experience synesthesia or mixed sensory experiences, such as seeing sounds or hearing colors. Other occurrences may include hallucinations (seeing things that aren’t actually there), an altered sense of time (feeling like hours have passed but it has only been a few minutes and vice versa), and dissociative experiences (not being inside your physical body or not feeling connected to reality). These drugs carry a very low risk of addiction or fatal overdose but can alter the mind in a lasting way if taken in too great a quantity.
