To facilitate clear and open communication and consensus-building, all proposed changes to the site must be cleared in group chat. I use this page to prepare structured suggestions (not requests) for discussion. You are welcome to add comments to this page with a preceding signature.


Dosages: Injection (limited to intravenous and intramuscular administration) dosages, and other routes of administration, for substances not listed or listed incorrectly at Erowid and TripSit.


LanguageTool is a multilanguage (language automatically detected) proofreading browser add-on that unlike Grammarly: 1) is free software 2) doesn't require login for short text (long text requires the premium version). I suggest that we recommend it at or What do you think about that?

General - Team

Good vibes

These GIFs at (used in the image slide show at can trigger a bad trip:

TripSit interactions

These pages don't have the TripSit interaction table:

Comeup and Comedown

We don't list Comeup and Comedown in the subjective rating scales which so people cannot predict when the Peak and Offset will occur. To help then we could make an argument that

  • the Comeup is the time between the Onset and Peak and that
  • the Comedown is the time between the Peak and Offset

However, lists Come up and Offset (and I suspect they can be found in other SubstanceBoxes).

Rename the Bad vibes page

The cartoon techno videos in are really nice, they doesn't give me bad vibes, I think Dark vibes is a better name for the page. What do you think @kenansulayman ? Think of it like dark genre names like dark psytrance (not bad psytrance), dark ambient (not bad ambient) etc.

YouTube video issues

Autoplay for YT videos broken

The autoplay is broken in @kenansulayman:

Starting position will start the video at the given time at, how do I configure {{#widget:YouTube|id=mPqWstVnRjQ}} to start at 2 hours 9 minutes 30 seconds?

I need to update the Stamets videos in

Wood Lover Paralysis

Add this to with a very elaborate description.

Drug precursor

Can I add a new category: to ?

Psychological dependence

Can we mention 'probability' at ?

Malformed tags

  • I've found '</references>' in several pages (example), it should be ''


Subjective effects

Should the property `Effect::Ego inflation` be added to:

Not categorized


"Caffeine had no effect in those with the AC genotype" -



The Merck Manual Professional Edition reports that there is little evidence of significant hazard associated with inhalation of alkyl nitrites.[1]




There are reports of physical dependency after frequent, heavy kratom use. Individuals who use it regularly or in large doses may find it difficult to stop. Withdrawal symptoms include irritability, yawning, diarrhea, runny nose, and pain in the joints or muscles. -

Simple psilocybin mushroom growing technique

"Gartz (1989) determined that psilocin levels of flushes were naturally low (.1 %) from a sterilized mixture of cow dung and rice (2:1), but could be raised up to 3.3% with the addition of only 25 milligrams of tryptamine into 10 grams of substrate. Furthermore, his study showed that at least 22% of psilocybin was derived from the introduced radioactively tagged tryptamine."[2]


Add Effect::Compulsive redosing to Desoxypipradrol ?


"2C-P is known to have a steep dose-response curve, with a very small margin separating a manageable dose and an overdose." -

"There was one report of an experience in which a single dosage of 16 mg was clearly an overdose, with the entire experiment labeled a physical disaster, not to be repeated. A consistent observation is that there may not be too much latitude in dosage between that which would be modest, or adequate, and that which would be excessive. The need for individual titration would be most important with this compound." - PiHKAL,


Remove {{headerpanel|{{approval}}}} from ?


Talk:Bufotoxins: "Taken orally, 5-MeO-DMT is actually inactive, and so licking a toad will expose you only to the highly dangerous cardiotoxic chemicals on its skin that are orally active. In fact, the only way to avoid the toxicity is to dry the venom and smoke it." -


I think Ecstacy should have it's own page. -

Suggested cites to MDMA#Long-term_health_concerns

“Now I would advise anyone who wants to use MDMA not to take it more than 4 times a year if you want to continue to get the best effects from it, otherwise you risk losing its effects entirely and permanently.” - Ann Shulgin

"Arguably, it is best to take MDMA infrequently and reverently or not at all." - Alexander Shulgin

"Keeping use to less than once every 4-6 weeks can help reduce both tolerance and chances of long-term negative impact." -



I need these templates to (see for the reference numbers)

  • Template:Cite
  • Template:Cite video

They can be exported from

These templates are mos likely used in other pages as well since they are common Wikipedia reference templates.


Import the common Wikipedia template

Add to Talk:Banisteriopsis_caapi: {{distinguish|the [[DMT]]/[[MAOI]] plant brew|ayahuasca}}



CBD does not appear to have any intoxicating effects such as those caused by tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in marijuana, but may have a downregulating impact on disordered thinking and anxiety.[3] CBD does not appear to have any psychoactive ("high") effects such as those caused by ∆9-THC in marijuana, but may have anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic effects.[3] As the legal landscape and understanding about the differences in medical cannabinoids unfolds, it will be increasingly important to distinguish "medical marijuana" (with noted varying degrees of psychotropic effects and deficits in executive function) – from "medical CBD".[3]



Add to under "Reagent testing kits" [proof-read]

Test results for all drugs & substances -

File:Packet of 4BDF powder.jpg
4BDF powder. The pink color is most likely due to an impurity. The color of pure BDF is usually white to off-white, similar to most recreational drugs, so there is no way to distinguish between them by eye.[citation needed]

Most pure chemicals are white to off-white so there is no way to distinguish between them by eye. Discoloration is often due to an impurity. The chemicals can still be contaminated with other white chemicals though.

Minor issues

Experience index

Discussed 2017-12-29. Do not discuss this before 2018-06-01

Can I replace the manually added entries in (and all other templates used in with  {{#ask: [[Category:1P-LSD]][[Category:Experience]]|format=ul|Columns=1}} {{#ask: [[Category:AL-LAD]][[Category:Experience]]|format=ul|Columns=1}} and so on. AL-LAD is incomplete for the moment.

Even if this should not be done because you cannot rely and should not rely on categories for experience reports, why would a reporter want to be visible on a substance page but not on the index page?

  • Nymphaea caerulea
  • Nelumbo nucifera
Caleicines and caleochromenes Calea ternifolia

I'll categorize the substances (once filled in the table) in:

The next thing I'm going to do is to categorize artificial chemicals under Other in:


Essential amphetamines

@BronzeManul: There are 12 substances in PiHKAL#Essential_amphetamines (see below list) but Shulgin mention 10. We could mention the other two in a separate list after Shulgin's Ten Essential Amphetamines list. Can you please have a look a this later? I think we should include the disclaimer ""One must remember that the term "essential" has nothing to do with the meaning of needed..." that I mention below. --David Hedlund (talk) 10:55, 7 January 2018 (CET)

The Ten Essential Amphetamines are what Shulgin describes as ten amphetamines that differ from natural products such as safrole or myristicin by an amine group. "One must remember that the term "essential" has nothing to do with the meaning of needed, or required. The word's origin is essence, something with an odor or smell. Thus, the essential oils are those oils that have a fragrance, and the Essential Amphetamines are those compounds that can, in principle, be made from them by the addition of ammonia in the body."[4]

The Ten Essential Amphetamines are:

  1. The 4-methoxy pattern.
  2. The 3,4-dimethoxy pattern.
  3. The 3,4-methylenedioxy pattern.
  4. The 3-methoxy-4,5-methylenedioxy pattern.
  5. The 2-methoxy-3,4-methylenedioxy pattern.
  6. The 3,4,5-trimethoxy pattern.
  7. The 2,4,5-trimethoxy pattern.
  8. The 2,5-dimethoxy-3,4-methylenedioxy pattern.
  9. The 2,3-dimethoxy-4,5-methylenedioxy pattern.
  10. The tetramethoxy pattern.

Is my text valid?:

Conservation status

Should we include IUCN Red List our botanical templates like Wikipedia?

Example of cactus:


@White: Some of the items listed in Category:Botany don't follow our standard: @White: Can we discuss this now? I'm in the channel.

"(botany)" should be replaced with "(genus)", right?:

Finally. Deliriant plant‎ is a duplication of Solanaceae (family)‎.

Please keep in mind that all links in the "What links here" page for each article has to updated. --David Hedlund (talk) 21:27, 7 January 2018 (CET)

DL-choline bitartrate

Ogg files's_DiPT_speach.ogg doesn't work because doesn't exist any longer for unknown reason. Are .ogg files not permitted?

Site standardization

  • Should psychoactive substance pages always carry this even if they are without references?:

{{references}} will show a book saying: "Question book-new.svg This article does not cite enough references. You can help by adding some."

The template is used on Nicotiana_(botany) but not on Talk:Psilocybe_hispanica_(mycology). I want to standardize the pages.


Wikipedia links

Dance page

Start a Dance page later. Dance are used in shamanic rituals. I also want to point out that Melbourne Shuffle on the peak experience while on psychedelic stimulants like 2C-B can produce some absolutely spectacular experiences.
