SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There are all kinds of weird ways to get high without drugs – starting by eating cheese.

Journalist James Nestor has penned Get High Now (Chronicle Books), a guide on how to “get high” naturally by altering your mind through sensory exercises.

Nestor says anyone can trip balls by doing different visual, audio, and breathing tricks, like controlling airflow to create an out-of-body experience.

Additionally, eating different kinds of cheeses such as Stilton can induce trippy, psychedelic dreams or nightmares.

Nestor tried four different cheeses with his friends once and says they all had the strangest lucid dreams that night.

Another way to get a buzz is by looping audio, which Nestor says will make the mind hallucinate a tone that isn’t actually there.

Although ancient cultures around the world have been using natural methods to get high for thousands of years, Nestor doesn’t recommend certain tricks like drinking “Russian reindeer urine” or smoking ants.
