Nature’s High: 8 Drugs You Can Only Find In The Wild

Nearly every drug known to man can be found somewhere in nature. Not just heavy drugs like heroin (poppy seed) and cocaine (the magnificent coca leaf), but everyday things like aspirin (born from willow bark) and penicillin (yielded from a rainbow-colored mold). Mother Nature hilariously stashed drugs all around for us to find, but that doesn’t mean every plant we come across possesses some miracle cure — or more to the point, can get us high. With the recent debunking of the “psychedelic” pangolin mammal scales, we’ve decided to bring you a comprehensive field guide of the eight most influential drugs found in the wild…for informational purposes only, of course.
