Laboratory-made hallucinogens like MDMA and ketamine are also available.

What’s the difference between psychedelics, hallucinogens, and stimulants?

Stimulants typically provide energising, exhilarating effects on the brain and body, whereas hallucinogens primarily produce altered perceptions and hallucinations, and their effects are usually substantially more mental than physical. Some hallucinogens and stimulants can cause hallucinations and changes in perception, although these aren't their major effects. Psychedelics affect all the senses, altering a person's thinking, sense of time and emotions.
