|This article is a stub. You can help RimWorld Wiki by expanding it. Reason: 1.4 nerf to fertility sense makes hydro psychoid much less viable but makes gravel psychoid much more viable. Work to product ratio is the same, so this can be a buff on some maps and a nerf on hydro reliant maps.|
A leafy plant which generates the chemical compound psychite. Originally evolved as a defense mechanism to ward off plant-eating animals by overstimulating and sickening them, the psychite drug can be extracted and refined into various forms for recreational use. It is addictive.

The psychoid plant is a leafy plant whose leaves can be brewed into psychite tea and refined into flake and yayo. Sowing psychoid plants requires a minimum growing skill of 6, but any colonist capable of plant cutting can harvest them. Psychoid plants are one of the few plants that can be planted and grown on polluted tiles.
Contrary to its description, it seems to have no particular ability to repel herbivores, who will continue to eat it if available.

Psychoid is likely based off of the real-world coca plant. Their appearances are very similar, both have been refined into a tea by ancient cultures, and both have a "cheap" and "refined" drug form.
