Got big plans for the weekend, but not sure if you have the stamina to last after a rough week at work? Our selection of the best natural party drugs is not only legal, but will inspire you to keep the party going all night. Keep reading for the best legal party drug alternatives.

The music is on point, the company is excellent, and everyone is ready to party until the early hours of the morning. Whether it’s a music festival, house party, or just a well-deserved night on the town, alcohol and other intoxicating substances aren't always your best option for an unforgettable night. Instead, herbal party alternatives can help stimulate your senses—without the pounding hangover the next morning.

If a heightened mood and a chance to let your hair down, without the embarrassing mishaps, sounds like your kind of night, then you've come to the right article. The party drug alternatives listed below use a blend of natural herbs and legal stimulants to replicate the party atmosphere, without putting you in trouble with the law. If it's been a long week, shrug off your stress and turn the music up loud―Zamnesia has you covered.

The Best Party Drug Alternatives

Underneath we have listed the best natural stimulants and herbs for partying all night long. Now, let's get this party started!

1. Hawaiian Baby Woodrose

Defined by mild visuals and peaceful feelings, Hawaiian baby woodrose (Argyreia nervosa) will keep the party mood going till dawn. With a trip lasting 6–8 hours, Hawaiian baby woodrose's active ingredient is d-lysergic acid amide (LSA), a potent alkaloid that provides psychedelic effects comparable to a low dose of LSD. The difference is, while LSD is illegal, Hawaiian baby woodrose is legal in most countries.

Don't swallow Hawaiian baby woodrose seeds as it induces vomiting and nausea; instead, chew the seeds before spitting them out. This method, however, may reduce the potency. Alternatively, you can grind the seeds and add them to a glass of purified water to sit for 24 hours. Once time has elapsed, strain the mixture through a coffee filter and slowly consume the “spiked” water over half an hour.

2. Party-E


Taken with a glass of water, Party-E is a legal and straightforward stimulant that will keep you busting out those killer dance moves all night long. Active ingredients include caffeine, green tea extract, ginger extract, and vitamins B5 and B6. Party-E induces happy, feel-good vibes that help you loosen up after a stressful week at work.

Take 1–2 capsules an hour before you are due to go out―this allows the Party-E mood to take hold. The unique combination of ingredients provides powerful feelings of energy and concentration―the perfect pairing for a night filled with laughter, chatting, and maybe a little romance too.

3. Stargate 2.0

Stargate 2.0

Forget the stars; it's time to gaze into your lover's eyes with the aphrodisiac qualities of Stargate 2.0. This exciting party-booster uses a sophisticated blend of herb extracts alongside ginger extract, vitamin B6, and cayenne extract to induce energetic vibes and a warm tingling sensation throughout your entire body. That same tingling sensation can be felt in the "areas" that count, providing a slight aphrodisiac effect.

Take 2–4 capsules on an empty stomach about half an hour before heading out. Or, if you have a night planned that involves being a little more intimate, take Stargate 2.0 about 45 minutes before any recreational activities (you can thank us later).

4. Yerba Mate

Yerba Mate

Yerba mate acts similarly to a strong coffee, but with some added benefits. Derived from the Ilex paraguariensis tree, it is chock-full of stimulating compounds designed to boost the mind and body. Leading this brew are caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine—all compounds with a proven history of enhancing energy levels and getting you on your feet to dance. The dynamic trio is backed up by myriad other vitamins believed to improve mood.

Yerba mate is prepared in the same way you would make tea or coffee. Give the herb 3–4 minutes to steep in hot (not boiling) water and enjoy!

5. Guarana


If you are a fan of a strong coffee before a night out, then guarana is here to provide a supercharged hit of caffeine. You might also recognise the name from many popular energy drinks―it is a key ingredient. Guarana is up to three times as strong as coffee, and thanks to its sophisticated chemistry, lasts a lot longer too.

Don't worry though, guarana won't leave you jittery like coffee, instead delivering a more balanced stimulating effect. Guarana seeds do require a small amount of preparation before they can be consumed, but the tradeoff in party stamina is well worth it.

6. Apollo's Appetizer

Apollo's Appetizer

If you want to channel the energetic fervour of the gods, Apollo's Appetizer is the natural party herb for the job. The boost to mind and body is a godsend when trying to impress with your dancing prowess. If hitting the town isn't your style and you prefer a more low-key party vibe, Apollo's Appetizer will still set you right thanks to its stimulating effects on the mind.

Caffeine anhydrous, Citrus × aurantium, and L-tyrosine finely tune your senses when you need it most. 1–2 capsules is all it takes, roughly 45 minutes before you want an intellectual and athletic boost in performance.

8. Kola Nut

Kola Nut

Forming a crucial part of Western and Central African traditions, kola nuts have become incredibly popular for the invigorating sensation they provide. The effect of kola nuts is so pronounced that they are used as a tonic to wake people up, and to treat vomiting and fever. For the healthy partygoer, kola nut can heighten concentration, especially when peer pressure forces you into a dance-off in the middle of the club.

The seeds need minimal preparation―grind them up and consume three times a day (2–6 grams total).

9. Morning Glory

Morning Glory

There is a reason these potent seeds are called morning glory―with a psychedelic journey that lasts up to 10 hours, they are best taken in the morning on a clear schedule. The source of morning glory's potency rests in the hands of lysergic acid amide (LSA), a compound that induces effects similar to LSD (without the illicit status).

As we have suggested, morning glory is not a before-work type of pick-me-up. Its impressive effects induce powerful, long-lasting trips, and are best enjoyed when you fancy a quiet weekend at home surfing the cosmos.

10. Hyperized


Hyperized is a formula developed by OBLIVINOV that's designed to supply you with clean and natural energy all night long. We’re all familiar with the dip in stamina that occurs around 2am on a night out. Often, this calls for a switch to water and a taxi home. However, the mix of nutrients and natural stimulants in Hyperized quickly generates a second wind. It supplies fast-acting natural energy and re-engages the mind, allowing the party to continue for as long as you want it to—and hangovers aren’t part of the deal!

The formula includes a lengthy list of vitamins and minerals. Vitamin B6 has a rightful place in the recipe—a nutrient that enhances mood. Vitamin B12 has also been harnessed for its mood-boosting and energy-enhancing effects. Guarana is also in the mix; this stimulating Amazonian fruit is prized for its high levels of caffeine and theobromine.
