How Long Do Hallucinogens Stay in Your System?
Because so many different types of hallucinogens exist, they can stay in your body for vastly different lengths of time. For example, a high from 251-NBOMe can last up to 10 hours and can have after-effects that last for up to a week. Because the drug has not been tested in humans, it is unclear how long it would show up in any tests. Meanwhile, the short duration of a high from DMT is reflected in one of its street names, 45-Minute Psychosis, and the drug is cleared from the blood within 15 minutes.
Further, both the route the drug is being taken as well as the dose may impact how long it takes for your body to get rid of it. In addition, some drugs may show up in certain tests, like hair tests, for far longer than they show up in the blood. How long hallucinogens stay in the body depends, therefore, on:
- The drug
- The dose
- The route
- What is being tested
