The Hidden Dangers of Synthetic Alkaloids in Entheogenic Products

By Rev

Introduction

The entheogenic community faces significant threats from synthetic alkaloids marketed under names that mimic natural mushrooms. One alarming case involves Diamond Shruumz, a product allegedly linked to severe health issues, including hospitalizations and seizures. This awareness article aims to raise public awareness about the dangers of these synthetic substances and the importance of rigorous testing to ensure safety.

Background

Synthetic alkaloids, while chemically similar to their natural counterparts, pose unique risks due to their high potency and unregulated nature. These substances are often marketed to evade standard drug detection methods, making them appealing yet dangerous. Recent incidents involving products like Diamond Shruumz underscore the severity of the issue.

The Diamond Shruumz Case

Dr. Jerome Cordova, a physician in Arizona, reported multiple patients experiencing severe symptoms after consuming Diamond Shruumz chocolates, including nausea, vomiting, seizures, and unconsciousness. Some patients required ventilation and ICU care. Dr. Cordova highlighted the lack of safety instructions on the product packaging and urged consumers to avoid these products .

In a press release, Arizona poison centers also issued warnings about Diamond Shruumz, citing similar cases of severe health issues and emphasizing the urgent need for consumer awareness and regulatory action . The FDA has initiated an investigation into the illnesses linked to these microdosing chocolate bars .

The Risk of Synthetic Alkaloids

Synthetic alkaloids like 4-ACO-DET (among others), are often found at very high concentrations (~99% purity), and pose a high risk of overdose, especially when compared to natural alkaloids, which typically have .8% – 2% potency. This increases the likelihood of toxicity due to mismeasured batches. The potency and variability of synthetic alkaloids make them particularly dangerous for unregulated production and consumption.

Industry Practices and Misleading Marketing

Products in the entheogenic market often use names and packaging that suggest natural origins but contain synthetic compounds. These “non-detect” alkaloids are designed to bypass drug tests, making them particularly dangerous as consumers remain unaware of the true nature of these products. Allegations surrounding products like Diamond Shruumz suggest they are marketed as safe, natural alternatives but may contain harmful synthetic ingredients. See: “Non-Detect Magic Mushrooms: A Loophole That Can Land You in Jail for 20 Years.

Ensuring Safety

To address these risks, the Entheology Project is launching a national anonymous testing network this summer. This initiative will provide the public with access to testing kits and professional High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) lab testing, ensuring the safety of entheogenic products. Testing is the only reliable way to verify the contents and potency of these substances.

Tips for Consumers:

  1. Educate Yourself: Understand the differences between natural and synthetic alkaloids.
  2. Use Testing Kits: Test products before use to verify their contents.
  3. Purchase Wisely: Buy from reputable sources that offer transparency and proof of testing.
  4. Report Issues: Report adverse effects to health authorities and organizations like the Entheology Project.

Conclusion

The rise of synthetic alkaloids in entheogenic products poses a grave threat to public health. Through education, rigorous testing, and informed purchasing decisions, consumers can protect themselves from these hidden dangers. The Entheology Project remains committed to promoting safety and awareness within the community.
