The Magic Molecules I Plus Minus Co.
Do you love chemistry and molecules? All of the stuff around you are made up of compound molecules, even you yourself is made up of molecules and secrete it. But, there are a few molecules that we just love. Some of these chemicals make us feel happy and energised, like caffeine or chocolate.
When you feel down, you need something to lift your mood up. Here are some peculiar jewelry designs that will surely make you feel ecstatic.
Caution: We do not endorse to use the molecules or chemicals mentioned here, we just think these molecules look good and might feel great.
The most powerful psychedelic, DMT, also called 'Spirit Molecule' or Dimitri can best be defined as a super-intense, rapid onset, and a 5-30 minute trip. It is a hallucinogenic drug, with similar effects such as LSD or magic shrooms.
Some experts believe that our brain releases this chemical when we dream. Others say that this is secreted during birth and death. It may even be what causes those near-death experiences you heat about. But there is no really scientific proof or evidence that proves this to be true.
LSD is a mind-altering drug. It is thought LSD causes it's characteristic hallucinogenic effects via interaction with the serotonin receptors in the brain.
The physical and mental effects of this drug may vary from person-to-person. It can take up to 30 mins for this to take into effect and may last for about 2 hours. Using IV injection may produce quicker reaction, usually about 5-10 minutes.
Mentioned earlier, Serotonin is a chemical produced by the brain to send signals between your nerve cells. Serotonin is considered a natural mood stabilizer. It’s the chemical that helps with sleeping, eating, and digesting.
It reduces anxiety, depression, heal wounds, and maintain bone health. It is typically called the happy chemical, since when secreted it generally makes you feel better.
This chemical generally comes from mushrooms known as magic mushrooms. Individuals use psilocybin as a recreational drug. It provides feelings of euphoria and sensory distortion that are common to hallucinogenic drugs, such as LSD.
Although experts say that this chemical is not an addictive substance, when ingested it can make the individual experience psychotic episodes; such as feeling anxiety or panic when using the drug.
If you're familiar with Cannabis, this is the main mind-altering chemical found in it. It is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana's psychological effects.
THC stimulates cells in the brain to release dopamine, creating euphoria. THC can induce hallucinations, change thinking and cause delusions. On average, the effects last about two hours, and kick in 10 to 30 minutes after ingestion.
It is a drug, and actually shares a number of traits with more notorious drugs such as amphetamines, cocaine and heroin. Caffeine uses the same biochemical mechanisms as these other drugs to stimulate brain function. If you feel like your getting high after a considerable amount of espresso, that's the chemical doing it's magic.
It provides a "boost of energy" or a feeling of heightened alertness. Many former students can recall using strong coffee or caffeine pills to stay awake while cramming for finals. Likewise, drivers on long road trips often fill their cup holders with energy drinks or convenience-store coffees to help them push through to their destinations. Be ware though, since it is a drug it can causse addiction.
Just like serotonin, Dopamine is a chemical that is secreted by our brains to act as a chemical messenger, that sends messages through neurotransmitters in our nerve cells.
Dopamine plays a role in how we feel pleasure. It's a big part of our unique human ability to think and plan. It helps us strive, focus, and find things interesting.
MDMA is a synthetic drug that alters mood and perception (awareness of surrounding objects and conditions). It is chemically similar to both stimulants and hallucinogens, producing feelings of increased energy, pleasure, emotional warmth, and distorted sensory and time perception.
MDMA increases the activity of three brain chemicals; dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin which are fundamental to the brain function.
Now that you're familiar with what these chemicals and their molecular structures mean I hope you're convinced that they're a unique design to jewelries and deserve a chance to be worn. Head on to Plus Minus Co's Magic Molecules collection for more designs and discounts when you order!
