In recent days, social networks have been taken over by content about a “new trend” among young people: using songs to “kick off” without having to do drugs. It seems it all started when a video of a boy teaching his followers how to achieve a hallucinogen-like mental effect went viral on TikTok.
“Today I’m going to teach you how to be ‘crazy’ completely legally without drugs and nothing intoxicating. You’ll only need two things: the internet and Youtube,” says the influencer in the video. The content has caught the attention of parents and the press, but the technology described as “digital medicine” on TikTok is already known on the Internet.

This happens when two sounds of different frequencies and intensities, but very close, are combined into a single sound.
“Many use binaural brainwave sound to relax, experience fun, improve meditation, yoga, holistic balance and more. With hundreds of doses available, the possibilities are endless,” the company explains on its website.
With the backlash of ‘digital dope’, many talking on social media, users may overdose on ‘substance’. However, the information is false. According to experts, sounds are not harmful to health and do not cause addiction, but still care must be taken not to damage hearing.

Still, it assumes a placebo effect from use. “[O áudio] It creates an unusual auditory-sensory experience that causes a person to believe it is the effect of a drug, psychedelic. But it is far from that,” he explains.
