Category: Oneirogens

Oneirogens are a class of substances, both natural and synthetic, that induce or enhance dream-like states of consciousness. 

Plants and fungi with oneirogenic activity have been used for thousands of years as a method of divination called oneiromancy. The practice was used to receive prophetic information, to heal, or to seek higher levels of spiritual awareness. 

The dreams these substances produce can vary substantially — ranging from hyper-realistic experiences to abstract or even alien. They’re used to facilitate lucid dreaming or to uncover hidden feelings or emotions. 
Some of these substances have psychoactive effects on waking consciousness, others only take effect while the user is asleep.
