I would like to know if anyone out there has "experimented" with drugs and there pets? Not that i would do it...... well actually once i blew gunja smoke on my friends cat but didn't notice anything because i was baked. Do animals have the same brain chemistry as us? please share you experience
No, of course animals don't have the same brain chemistry as us. John Lilly gave LSD to doplphins in a research project, but limited language prevented any real advance in knowledge. Our closest cousins, with only 2% of our DNA different - chimpanzees - have a horrible time with mushrooms. After one experiment, even the sight of Agaricus Bisporas - common salad shrooms, caused hysteria in the chimp. I saw a photo of a house cat on LSD, clinging to the roof of his cage in abject terror at the sight of a mouse placed in the cage. Humans have the frontal lobe capacity for these chemicals whereas the limbic systems of other animals including primates are primarily affected, causing horrible fear and confusion. Transrational, transpersonal and generally pleasurable experiences seem reserved for humans with regard to psychedelics. On the other hand, a friend's African Grey parrot seemed to ask for cannabis smoke to be blown in his face. Dogs, on the other hand have very sensitive noses and smoke causes pain. Cannabis is a mild psychedelic, effects also do not approach those of the major psychedelics. Be kind to animals. :)
