Increased music appreciation
Increased music appreciation can be described as an increased enjoyment of music. When music is listened to within this state, the perceived music and lyrical content may have a profound impact upon its listener.
This experience can give one a sense of hyper-awareness of every sound, lyric, melody and complex layer of noise within a song in addition to an enhanced ability to individually comprehend its multiple layers of noise. The perceived emotional intent of the musician and the meaning of the music may also be felt in a greater level clarity than that which is attainable during everyday sober living. During particularly enjoyable songs, this effect can result in feelings of overwhelming euphoria and general appreciation that can leave the user with a deep sense of connection towards the artist they are listening to.
Although this component is commonly mistaken as a purely auditory effect, it is more likely the result of several coinciding components such as novelty enhancement, personal meaning enhancement, emotionality enhancement, and auditory enhancement.
Increased music appreciation is commonly mistaken as a purely auditory effect but is more likely the result of several coinciding components such as novelty enhancement, personal meaning enhancement, emotionality enhancement, and auditory enhancement. It is most commonly induced under the influence of moderate dosages of hallucinogenic compounds, such as psychedelics, dissociatives, and cannabinoids. However, it can also occur to a lesser extent under the influence of stimulants and GABAergic depressants.
Compounds which may cause this effect commonly include:
1,4-Butanediol, 1P-ETH-LAD, 1P-LSD, 2-Aminoindane, 2-FA, 2-FMA, 25B-NBOH, 25B-NBOMe, 25C-NBOH, 25C-NBOMe, 25D-NBOMe, 25I-NBOH, 25I-NBOMe, 25N-NBOMe, 2C-B, 2C-B-FLY, 2C-C, 2C-D, 2C-E, 2C-I, 2C-P, 2C-T-2, 2C-T-7, 3,4-CTMP, 3-FA, 3-FEA, 3-FMA, 3-FPM, 3-HO-PCE, 3-HO-PCP, 3-MMC, 3-MeO-PCE, 3-MeO-PCMo, 3-MeO-PCP, 3C-E, 4-AcO-DET, 4-AcO-DMT, 4-AcO-DiPT, 4-AcO-MET, 4-AcO-MiPT, 4-FA, 4-HO-DET, 4-HO-DPT, 4-HO-DiPT, 4-HO-EPT, 4-HO-MET, 4-HO-MPT, 4-HO-MiPT, 4-MeO-PCP, 4F-EPH, 4F-MPH, 5-APB, 5-MAPB, 5-MeO-DALT, 5-MeO-DiBF, 5-MeO-DiPT, 5-MeO-MiPT, 5F-AKB48, 5F-PB-22, 6-APB, 6-APDB, A-PHP, A-PVP, AB-CHMINACA, AB-FUBINACA, AL-LAD, ALD-52, APICA, Adrafinil, Alcohol, Allylescaline, Amphetamine, Armodafinil, Ayahuasca, Bk-2C-B, Bromo-DragonFLY, Bufotenin, Butylone, Cannabis, Cocaine, DET, DMT, DOB, DOC, DOI, DOM, DPT, Deschloroketamine, Dextromethorphan, Dextromethorphan & Diphenhydramine, Dichloropane, Diphenidine, ETH-LAD, Ephenidine, Escaline, Ethylone, Ethylphenidate, F-Phenibut, GBL, GHB, Hexedrone, Hexen, Ibogaine, Isopropylphenidate, JWH-018, Ketamine, LSA, LSD, LSM-775, LSZ, Lisdexamfetamine, MDA, MDAI, MDEA, MDMA, MET, MPT, Mephedrone, Mescaline, Methallylescaline, Methamphetamine, Methaqualone, Methiopropamine, Methoxetamine, Methoxphenidine, Methylnaphthidate, Methylone, Methylphenidate, MiPT, Mirtazapine, Modafinil, N-Methylbisfluoromodafinil, NEP, NM-2-AI, Nicotine, O-PCE, PARGY-LAD, PRO-LAD, Pentedrone, Phenibut, Pregabalin, Propylhexedrine, Proscaline, Psilocin, Psilocybin mushrooms, STS-135, Salvinorin A, THJ-018, THJ-2201, TMA-2, TMA-6, Theacrine, Tramadol, Zolpidem, ΑMT
