10 Everyday Foods That Can Get You High!

– Spoiler alert! You’re never going to look
at coffee the same again. – [Narrator] It makes you
behave like the village drunkard in some early Irish novel. Total loss of all basic motor skills, blurred vision, no balance, numb tongue. – There are a lot of foods
that can get you high, but the ones I’m about to
tell you of aren’t some type of obscure root sourced
from the rainforest; no, these are foods that
are readily available in any supermarket. That next trip to get groceries is gonna feel a lot different after this. Here are 10 everyday foods
that can get you high. Number one is coffee. Coffee is something many people simply can’t start their day without. But, drink enough of it, and yes, you absolutely can get high. Because it’s so popular, people often forget that it’s a drug, more specifically, the caffeine part. Caffeine can boost your energy,
making you feel more alert, and even give you an
elevated sense of wellbeing. And guess what? That’s the definition of being high. Now, to be clear, 400
milligrams is the healthy max that a person can consume in a day; but that’s only about three
to four cups of coffee, and if you drink more,
you can actually get high. In fact, five cups of coffee or more can actually lead to
caffeine intoxication; which causes nausea; diarrhea; and even worse, mess
up your nervous system. Two male undergrad students
from Northumbria University in England nearly died
while taking part of a study to test the effects of
caffeine on exercise. The researchers accidentally
gave them 30 grams of pure caffeine instead of 0.3 grams. That’s almost 300 cups of coffee! Almost immediately, both men experienced violent side effects, like convulsions, blurred
vision, and vomiting, and both had to be put on dialysis. So, coffee can perk you up,
but just don’t overdose on it. Number two are mulberries. If you feel like seeing
things that aren’t there and don’t mind being bent
over the toilet shortly after, try some mulberries! Raspberries’ uglier, more exotic cousin, they’re normally found in tropical places, and these berries can
be quite toxic to humans if they aren’t fully ripe. Eating unripe mulberries can get you high, leading to moderate hallucinations
and lightheadedness. But you might wanna think
again if you were considering starting a
psychedelic-pies-and-jams business, and that’s because these bad-boy berries are actually a natural laxative; and a super powerful one, at that. So to avoid a day in the
bathroom puking your guts out, don’t eat these. Number three is nutmeg. The smell of nutmeg
immediately makes most people think of Christmas; eggnog; or fruit cake, which I happen to like. Don’t judge me. It’s one of the most
common spices you can find in holiday desserts, but
having too much of it can really screw up both
your mind and your body. The active ingredient in
nutmeg that gets you high is called myristicin, which
the human body is capable of converting into an
amphetamine-style psychedelic. All you have to do is ingest
as little as four teaspoons of this spice, and at first you might feel as good as Christmas morning, with some mild hallucinations
and the feeling of pins and needles in your arms and legs. But just when you think
that you’re in the clear, five hours later the dizziness
and nausea will set in, and you’ll find yourself
curled up in a ball, paranoid that the world
is caving in on you while your mouth becomes
as dry as the Sahara. And the next morning you’ll be having one of the worst hangovers
of your life, from nutmeg! Does that sound like a
jolly good time to you? I don’t think so. Number four are chili peppers. You might be thinking: “But
the only thing getting high “from chili peppers is
my core temperature.” Yeah, but you’re mistaken. It turns out, chilis are
quite useful in medicine. Chilis contain high levels of capsaicin, which is the chemical that causes the spicy food to be spicy. But it’s also responsible
for sending out endorphins in response to all of that heat. See, when your body senses
heat, it releases endorphins to ease the anticipated
pain of getting burnt. On the skin it can feel like numbness; and when you eat them, the
effects are even more intense. In fact, historians
believe that the Mayans were way ahead of the sriracha trend, and were using chilis as
hallucinogens over 9,000 years ago. Chili peppers can bring
the feeling of euphoria as the pleasure center of
your brain gets stimulated. That’s why, when you eat
something really spicy, it may feel like a
blowtorch to your mouth, but eventually the discomfort goes away, and you kind of start to feel good. And it’s chasing that
high which is part of why barstool daredevils keep
ordering the suicide hot wings. Number five is sarpa salpa. One fish, two fish, red fish, I’m a fish, everything is melting,
purple is my spirit animal! There’s a fish out there
that’s totally capable of making you hallucinate if you eat it. The sarpa salpa is usually found in the eastern Atlantic
ocean and Mediterranean Sea; but, it can be found on many
a dinner plate, as well. The body of the fish is completely edible, and maybe people enjoy it. But eating its head is
where the real trip begins. The sarpa salpa eats a
lot of algae and plankton, which can contain hallucinogenic
chemicals called indol. It’s hard to tell how
much indol is in the fish just by looking at it, so it’s
pretty much a coin toss from just eating a fish head for
the sake of eating a fish head or having the worst hellfire-and-brimstone trip of your life. Be sure you’ve got someone to
watch over you if you do this, which I do not recommend, but you’ll probably regret it either way. If you do try it, you can at
least feel like the Romans, which also ate sarpa salpa to trip balls. Which also kind of explains a lot about the Romans, doesn’t it? Number six are mushrooms. Obviously this video is for entertainment and educational purposes only, so I’m not saying to go out
there and try any of these, especially this one ’cause you
could literally die from it. Mushrooms are a form of fungi, and there are literally thousands of different species that exist. This makes it kinda hard
to figure out which one would be a good pizza
topping, or which ones will make you think that
you’re in the land of Oz, or which ones will kill you instantly. Psilocybe, or magic mushrooms, have been used as a
psychedelic drug for ages. Like other mild hallucinogens, they can cause a sense of euphoria and feeling like you
live in a kaleidoscope while also causing dizziness,
nausea, and vomiting. Bummer. But since most mushrooms look so similar, if you aren’t a trained botanist, you could end up taking a lethal dose of something super poisonous. So unless you bought it
from the grocery store, it’s best to leave the
magic to the professionals. Number seven are poppy seeds. It’s been a longstanding
rumor that poppy-seed bagels have caused some people
to fail their drug tests. But before you dismiss that
as just a myth, keep watching. Opium is actually made from poppy seeds, which contain morphine and codeine. And, poppy-seed bagels
have, um, a lot of them. Yeah, there’s a reason
that Dorothy passed out in the field for like a day, guys. These are some of the most
addictive painkillers out there, which makes it no surprise
that, centuries ago, opium fueled the global drug trade. Even today, there is a huge
problem of people abusing prescription pills, trying
to chase down that same high. Now, granted, you’d have
to eat a lot of poppy seeds to get you messed up, but, depending on where the
poppy seeds came from, it is most definitely possible
that you could get high. Number eight is Stilton cheese. You don’t even have to be awake to get the effects of this drug/food; in fact, it’s better if you’re not. Dating back to the 1700s, this particular pungent
type of blue cheese was founded in a village
called Stilton in England. The cheese is exported around the world, but there are only three
countries in England that still make it according
to its strict code. If you aren’t a fan of strong cheese, you might feel like just
a bite will knock you out, but the truth is, it’s actually known to affect the dreams of those who eat it. A survey completed in 2005
by the British Cheese Board, yeah that’s a thing, found that
75% of men and 85% of women who consumed Stilton cheese
just half an hour before going to sleep had incredibly
strange and vivid dreams. Many even reported that the
dreams were so real that it was if they were having
hallucinations rather than dreaming. Well, it sure seems like
a halloumi of a good time. I mean, it sounds pretty great. Really, it doesn’t get any feta than that. OK, I’m just go listen to some R & Bree. Number nine is rye bread. While not every piece
of rye bread comes with that little something
extra to get you high, it doesn’t mean that the
next sandwich you have won’t. In fact, historians
claim that this seemingly innocent baked good
could have been the cause of some of the events
that got people tried as witches during the Salem Witch Trials. See, ryegrass is susceptible to a fungus called Claviceps Purpurea which causes a little thing called ergot poisoning. When ingested by humans, this
stuff can lead to many issues, including headaches, nausea,
and intense hallucinations. Which maybe isn’t so
surprising when you consider that ergot contains ergotamine, which just so happens to
be a psychoactive chemical which is used in the synthesis of LSD. So you may not feel “Awesome, dude”, but, if you’re looking to see and
hear things that aren’t there, a little ergot poisoning with
your rye bread in the morning is just what the unlicensed
back-alley doctor ordered. And number 10 is sugar. OK, you’ve heard of a
sugar high before, right? Well, before you go
dismissing it as something that exclusively happens to children binging on cake and candy
at a birthday party, let’s discuss just how much
of a drug sugar actually is. For starters, it’s important to understand that sugar affects people differently. Our bodies tend to burn
through the basic carbohydrates that make up sugar pretty quickly, leaving the body to have
a short burst of energy. Now, this doesn’t last
long, but it feels great, so naturally, we start to crave even more. So, this is a substance that
you can take internally, get a short high from, and then crash, and it makes you want more of it? Sounds like a drug to me. In fact, believe it or not,
excessive amounts of sugar can actually damage
internal organs in ways that hard drugs like heroine
and cocaine never could. So, after learning that, it shouldn’t be a surprise that sugar is highly addictive. The problem with so much
packaged and processed food out there is that sugar is
in practically everything, making it really hard to avoid. That being said, damn
sugar, where’s my Pixy Stix? So those were 10 foods
that can get you high. Today’s question is: what
other foods do you know of that can get you high as a kite? I want to know what it is,
and also what it does to you. You know, for a friend. So, leave your response below because I’ll be reading through them, and I’ll pin the best one to the top. And thank you guys so
much for coming by today. Remember to come back
tomorrow and every weekday at three p.m. Eastern Standard Time because I’ll have a
brand-new video for you. I will see you then.

  1. Opium is made from the sap from the opium flower pods, not the seeds. So, you would have to grow the plant from the seeds.

  2. I have a mulberry tree right outside of my house. Weat them all the time and nothing happens. No laxative or high. Im calling BS

  3. The seed of a banana dried out and then smoked will get you high. And if u peel an orange smother the inner of the peel in toothpaste for a day and then eat it off youll trip

  4. Tropical areas… there was a mulberry tree in my neighbors backyard and my brother and I ate some but my other brother said we would die after eating them… we didnt know they were berries

  5. “one fish two fish, red fish, i’m a fish, everything is melting, purple is my spirit animal!!!” LITERALLY MY FAVORITE PART OF THE VIDEO!!!!✨💫😂

  6. I drink soda 24/7 and all it ever does is make me fat, make me pee, and give me kidney stones. Nothing great about that sugar and caffeine cocktail.. Seriously I keep a bottle next me at all times even when in bed

  7. Buy a brand new bottle of nutmeg, and take 3 teaspoons by mouth(drink water to wash it down because it tastes and feels gross)and wait about 8 hours. You’ll feel a very mild weed high. I actually really like it.

  8. I accidentally got high drinking coffee. The next day I found this video. Drinking 12 cups of coffee is now a daily practice.

  9. I think I got high on coffee a few weeks ago. Drank too much obviously. Jumped around in the apartment. Put on the running shoes and walked downtown with the speed of light. Heart palpitations and tunnel vision.

  10. I have incredibly vivid dreams without any cheese. Sometimes they feel so real that it's hard to tell if it was a dream or actually happened, though obviously the really weird dreams aren't real. But if I dream about something normal, like going to work, or driving my car somewhere, it can be hard to distinguish if I really did it.
    As for most of the stuff on this list, even if you ate enough to get those effects, it's going to be so incredibly unpleasant that you're going to wish you didn't.

  11. The guy who invented santa was probably on nutmeg and tripped so hard he saw a fat pale white man with white hair and a beard carrying presents while falling down his chimney

  12. Grew up in Florida and we used to go HARD on some mulberries when I was a kid. There was a GIANT tree right near my elementary school, and the kids that walked to school would hit it up before and after and pick all of the berries they could, myself included. I can recall several times walking in to class with purple stained hands.

  13. If you want to trip on nutmeg without throwing up , pack at least 22 grams of nutmeg in a bunch of empty pill capsules and wait 8 hours and you will start hallucinating on & off for a few hours . The flavor of nutmeg is the only thing that induces the feeling of nausea, so put the nutmeg in capsules !

  14. 😁🤣👍🏼. Mathew!? Did you have COFFEE, & SUGAR! Today? I mean, that explains how you can get all you’re videos and informing for us. BTW. I LOVE!! Well, COFFEE & SUGAR, is what I had, to keep up with you. Lol 🤗

  15. MATHEW, you make all these videos & information ℹ️. So much fun. Ask for a pay raise! You deserve it. 👏🏼👏🏼
    Thank you 🙏🏼. 😁

  16. Hold up, hold up. So you mean all those people on “First We Feast’s Hot Ones” show are gettin high as hell from all those hot sauces they eat on the wings? You know, made from chili peppers. Damn. Thats great. 😂😂😂

  17. I accidentally did something similar with caffeine. I was super tired and the school was handing out coffee. It was just Dunken Donuts coffee bottles like you would get at a gas station.

    I drank one, wasn't feeling energized, so I drank the second one. Oh boy, worst mistake. I didn't read the small text that said 'espresso'. Felt like I was drunk when it set in. I must've drunk at least 4-5 shots which didn't feel good to say the least.

  18. Jingle bells, Jingle bells,
    Let’s us all get high.
    I’m with Santa smoking weed while riding on his sleigh! Hey
    Jingle bells, Jingle bells, Jingle all the way. Doing dipt while drinking alcohol. Hey!
    Dashing through the meth, hallucinations go to death, riding Santa’s sleigh while I just go away!

  19. Vanilla extract, pure not imitation, can get you high. I forget the exact reason, but I heard a story of someone getting pulled over while driving and failed the sobriety test after drinking a shitload of it.

  20. Nut meg. Boil it let it cool. A fat will solidify on top. That will get you a strong trip. I know because I did it many years ago.

  21. I did a giver trial on psilocybin. It was good. Definitely worth it. They made a documentary about it. I. In it, a lot, worrying.

  22. Stilton is not the only cheese in the UK that mess with your dreams. There is even one that will gently, warmly and nicely carry you off to sleep. I like it. Hawaii baby word rose seeds do the same as ergot. I got poisoned by it years ago. Did not like it.
