Is there MDMA and psychedelic cross-tolerance?
I’m having a difficult time actually getting visuals when taking LSD or the 2c family (2c-e, 2c-p, 2c-b). Only connection I can come up with is the fact that I did DMT a few days prior, but again the 2nd time I did LSD I didn’t do DMT for about a week.
So, my question is do they work on the same receptors or does the DMT effect the trip of LSD/2c family? Some things I also noticed is when I did 2c-b/LSD, I would get a cramp on my upper trapezius muscle but when I did DMT during the LSD I it would just go away. Additionally I should mention that I have type 1 diabetes which is well controlled (A1C has been in the range of 6-6.5 for the past 10 years).
Also is there any other long term health concerns other than serotonin syndrome with psychedelics?
There is some degree of cross-tolerance among most «classical» psychedelics, which are phenethylamines or tryptamines that interact differently with 5-HT2A serotonin receptors. Tolerance to hallucinogenic effects developed with one substance often applies to similar substances. To reset tolerance, a minimum of several weeks or a month is needed.
LSD, DMT, and the 2C-x family are considered physically safe.
Anecdotical reports suggest cross-tolerance between LSD and psilocybin lasts for at least 7-10 days.
For those with well-controlled diabetes who take normal precautions, there are no additional risks and the risks are similar to those of non-diabetic individuals
Diabetics should take specific precautions before using psychedelics, such as setting a watch alarm to remember to eat and take insulin. The altered perception of time and self-perception of the body can make it difficult to detect hypo- or hyperglycemic episodes. Although psychedelics do not affect blood glucose levels, it’s advisable to check blood glucose levels once or twice during the experience to ensure safety
