TOPIC: Drug use affecting/failing to affect aphantasia

Drug use affecting/failing to affect aphantasia 2 months 2 weeks ago #39430

One of the questions my friends always ask me is how psychedelics affect my ability to visualize things/if I hallucinate, but I've never done any and don't have an answer for them. People have mentioned how drugs have affected/failed to affect their aphantasia in a couple posts, but I think a thread dedicated to people's experiences while using psychedelics, MDMA, THC, or other controlled substances could be interesting.

(Note: I don't want to encourage illegal behavior or get anyone in trouble, but we're all here to learn so I vote we take a "in the name of science" perspective for the conversation.)

I took LSD a few times when I was young. Did not hallucinate a thing. But giggled my **** off for several hours. Smoked a fair bit of cannabis, was relaxing but once again nothing more than that. Haven't touched anything else. Hope that helps.

Hi,

I am a regular user of marijuana and I have noticed that I do visualize often when I am using, but for the most part the visualizations are not under my control. It is more like dreaming here random images just surface.

There is an open thread on this topic: aphant.asia/forum/sensitive-or-adult-top...they-working-for-you

No visual effects on Pot. Closed and open eye visuals on psilocybin, open eye visuals on LSD, extremely vivid closed eye visuals on MDMA....my experience.

Had forced visualization after surgery due to drug interactions. I told the nurses wonderful stories of my adventures on land, sea, and outer space. Wish someone had recorded them.
Out of sight, out of mind.
