Effect of psychoactive drugs on animals - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Effect of psychoactive drugs on animals - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: Psychoactive drugs, such as caffeine, amphetamine, mescaline, strychnine, LSD, marijuana, chloral hydrate, theophylline, IBMX and others, can have strong effects on certain animals. At small concentrations, some psychoactive drugs reduce the feeding rate of insects and molluscs, and at higher doses some can kill them. Spiders build more disordered webs after consuming most drugs than before. It is believed that some plants developed caffeine in their leaves as a natural protection against insects.
