Hashish cause alter thought perceptions and hallucinations

Psychotropic drugs (mood altering drugs) act on the brain and alter the behaviour, consciousness and power of perception. Barbiturates (derivative of barbituric acid) are general depressants for all excitable cells but the CNS is most sensitive to these drugs.

Opium is obtained from unripe seed pots of poppy plant (Papaver somniferum). Optimum has an analgesic (pain killing) effect and may also reduce anxiety and tension and lowers the blood pressure and breathing rate. 

Morphine ( a dream inducing derivative of opium) dream-inducing properties.
