Adrenochrome (alternatively called Neuromelanin) is a hallucinogenic drug suspected to have been used in Project MKUltra. Like Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), Secret Cold War experiments tested various drugs during unethical human experimentation in the United States. These hallucinogenic drugs (See also psychosomatic medicine) antagonize psychological phenomena, which may explain (but not conclusively) seeing "aliens" during abductions.
Research and MedicineEdit
Research into the effects of Adrenochrome abruptly ended in the 1960s and has been referred to in academic literature as, "The Great Adrenochrome Fiasco". Hoffer (1957) contested that Adrenochrome appeared naturally in human blood, while Szara et.al. (1958) reported in the exact same journal that there was no Adrenochrome in human blood.
MacArthur et.al. (2000) found that rat blood contained 200nM of "aminochrome", a chemical containing both Adrenochrome and Noradrenochrome. The exact proportion of adrenochrome to noradrenochrome could not be determined.
Adrenochrome is hypothesized to play a role in the development of schizoprenia in adults.
John Smythies (2002) describes the effects of Adrenochrome as being wildly hallucinogenic, with participants without a mental disorder ("normal" test subjects) experiencing "very impressive visual illusions of color, movement and distance perception [...]".
- Purported Effects
- Thought Disorder
- Bizarre Ideation
- Body Image Disturbances / Body Dysmorphia
- Hyper-Mania / inappropriate affect to stimuli.
It is widely believed in conspiracy theory circles that the adrenaline needed to properly synthesize Adrenochrome for the elites, is harvested through the experience of terrifying individuals to the brink of fear/insanity. An example of such an extraction, is shown through the subliminal scene in "Maze Runner: The Death Cure". In which the character 'Minho' is implanted with a virtual/false reality of being chased by huge spider like monster (A 'Griever'). In this short scene, his adrenaline is taken out from tubes as the 'cure'. Many other movies also subliminally input Adrenochrome into their scripts and scenes .
This would explain many of the accounts of Mk-ultra and ritual abuse survivors(mostly children), who often describe being purposely made to feel fearful through extraordinarily deviant methods. It would also explain the need by hospitals and clinics to compulsively take blood from individuals who have experienced severe emotional trauma, despite no true medical need to do so.
It is also claimed that adrenochrome-laden human blood is being bought and sold using blood donation charities, such as the Red Cross. This would provide relatively easy access to the drug by elites; for example, the Clinton Foundation has worked extensively with the Red Cross. However this claim lacks evidence and truth.
Adrenochrome is thought to be consumed to give someone (most likely the elite) an “adrenaline high.” The effects and classification of this drug is said to be controversial because it is debated whether is has any psychoactive or hallucinogenic effects
Adrenochrome is (at least in medical / scientific applications) injected with a needle in micro-dosages. 
Adrenochrome has been found to occur naturally in human blood .
Derivatives / AlternativesEdit
- Adrenochrome Semicarbazone - Similar, but with noticeably different effects. (Rinkel & Solomon 1957).
- Mescalin - Effects similar to adrenaline / adrenochrome. (Smythies 2002)
- Neuromelanin - May be related to the synthesis of adrenochrome in the brain.
Hunter S. Thompson references Adrenochrome in the novel/film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. In Fear, the drug is taken directly from the adrenal gland of a "fresh" donor by the main characters. This results in what Thompson describes as an "exotic" high. Thompson would later claim that the story was fabricated and that no such substance exists (it does exist).
