People who wish to remember their dreams using lucid dreaming are well aware of Oneriogens. Oneriogens plants or herbs used for LD are available all over the world. However, in some places, these are banned too.

Ban on oneriogens is due to some of the lethal side effects of these herbs. These side effects include jerks, nausea, vomiting, etc. However, these slight effects are negotiable for some time. But the main point to consider is that mishandling or misuse of some herbs can lead to death.

The problem that arose by taking herbs for lucid dreaming is sometimes due to the chemical reactions of herbs and food. If you are using these herbs and any problem occurs, then you should stop their use immediately. There are several herbs in this list. Here I will show you the side effects and precautions of some most familiar herbs.

Herbs and precautions

Calea Zacatechichi

Typically Calea Zacatechichi is safe, but it can be unsafe. It is seemed to be lethal when you take it by mouth or by breathing. Some adverse effects of Calea Zacatechichi include nausea, hallucination, salivation, deficient involuntary coordination of muscle movement, and vomiting.

  • You will remain alright if you use its recommended dosage. So avoid overdosage for Calea Z.
  • Don’t consume it by mouth.
  • Don’t inhale it.
  • In clinical trials, no trials are available on pregnant women. So you should direct to your physician or avoid its use and stay on the safe side.
  • Calea Z will cause you allergic problems if you are sensitive to the Compositae plant family.

African dream root

A study on the African dream root plant used for LD has saponins in its composition. Saponins on coming in contact with water give rise to foam-like substances. It can infuriate the digestive tract lining and cause vomiting. So to avoid this, don’t use African dream roots in larger quantities. Moreover, try to operate by sniffing rather than taking it with water.

Tabernanthe iboga

Tabernanthe iboga, a native shrub of central Africa, can also induce lucid dreaming. An adverse effect varies from intense hallucination to even death. For this reason, it is also on the ban in some places. So, try to use it in minute quantity.

Salvia divinorum

Salvia divinorum is generally protective, but it can cause hazardous side effects such as dizziness, confusion, delusion, paranoia, etc. These effects appear when you use salvia Divinorum by breath. So, avoid inhaling it.

The risk of hallucination and delusion is very high in people whose family history is related to schizophrenia. Thus such people should not use Salvia divinorum.


Amphetamine is a CNS stimulant used in LD and various disease treatments. Try to use this medicine on the advice of your physician because it may cause a false sense of well-being. After some time, chronic impacts burst out. Moreover, do not consume alcohol with this medication.


Overall I suggest that not using herbs for lucid dreaming without the recommendation of the doctor. Women that are expecting or feeding should stay on the safe side and avoid its use. Overdosage may lead to disaster. Furthermore, no one should be advised to use the herbs without considering their family history.
