Question Mulberries getting you high?

This is the first time I've heard of this and ive been picking mulberries from my trees for years and eating them.

>>Unripe fruit and green parts of the plant have a white sap that is intoxicating and mildly hallucinogenic.[4]

Only works if you mash it into a paste and use it as lube.

I've heard old rumors about that and some even think they're poisonous, but the only thing I ever got from it was a bad case of the squirts...

Must be why my cows eat all the ones they can reach.

Probably be a good idea to try not working them when mulberries are on, they'll be trippin' balls and thinking I'm a fuckin' dragon or something.

1-Deoxynojirimycin appears to be one of the active compounds:


This chemical is an alpha-glycosidase inhibitor. Alpha-glycosidase inhibitors prevent the breakdown of polysaccharides into simple sugars. I'm really not sure how or if this one causes psychedlia.

Reservatrol is also present, but only in mature fruits. I can't find anything specifically isolating the psychotropic substance, so I can't begin to work out a mechanism of action

Mature fruits dont get you high, so Reservatrol isnt a factor.

I remember reading about this once, from memory it was incredibly inconsistent in terms of dosage and not so much a hallucinogen but a delirient. That was enough to deter me at the time...

Yea I used to have a giant mulberry tree in my yard. Every year we (my friends and I) would fight the birds for dibs on the trees, and then we'd eat a fuckton of them. Id heard the same rumor but apparently the alkaloids were more concentrated in the sap, which was off-white and milky. I harvested and prepared some in a opium-like fashon and smoked it out of a bubbler. The smoke was fairly smooth but not so much in taste. I remember a little stoney feeling, kind of like when we drank wormwood tea years later.

How would breaking long chains of sugar into simpler forms (e.g. starch to glucose) be associated with psychedelia?

That's what I'm saying.

While 1-Deoxynojirimycin is active (active in treating diabeetus), I don't see how this could lead to deleria or psychedelia.

There must be some other unknown psychoactive at work, but my googling turned up nihil.

Alpha-glucosidase inhibitors are prescribed to treat hyperglycemia this means it lowers blood sugar. Now if a large amount of alpha-glucosidase inhibitors would be consumed by a healthy individual it would only stand to reason that this person would become hypoglycemic and even could suffer from hypoglycemic delirium if the doses were large enough.

Hence experience effects that are percieved as psychotropic.


Just my theory.

Hahaha holy shit, bro. That's insane. xD

This is interesting though. Could very well be placebo though, in fact very likely..
