Smoking Bed bugs could get you HIGH!
Seriously, this is a new trending drug among youngsters. As gross as it may sound, those little insects have the potential to get you as high as any other drug.
Bed bugs, are known to the scientific world as parasites to humans as they live off our blood. A number of adverse health effects may result from bed bug bites, including skin rashes, psychological effects, and allergic symptoms.
Back to how persons use this insect to get high.
Bed bugs have a chemical inside of them that can’t be extracted, so users dry the bug, crush it, and then smoke or even inject it for the full effect.
“It enters the brain and it goes through certain receptors in the brain and the pleasure centers of the brain…are stimulated,” says Tom McKee. “Dopamine is released and the person gets a high from that,” he concludes. According to the ABC News report, bedbugs have a known hallucinogen that if it is smoked or injected can cause major hallucinations.
PH417, said to be “nuerotoxic and dangerous,” is the chemical the bedbugs host.
According to ABC, doctors warn there is another chemical in the bug (Temperate) that shows flu-like symptoms which cause the blood level to be lowered, and the high to be reversed.
“The person is left feeling depressed, dysphoric [and] looking for the next high,” McKee adds.
The bedbugs are caught by using sugar water and a straw.
