Molecularly, 5-HT has a unique ring configuration at its core, a benzene ring.
which is incredibly common in buried plant carbon.
That is, crude oil.
Benzene is, in essence, an equilateral hexagon. This makes it tremendously
stable and highly functional—it is very easy, as plants discovered long ago, to
connect other molecular structures to it, creating variations on the theme.
And this is why pharmaceutical companies use it
to make their drugs
all of which, by the way, are variations on plant innovations
that are millions of years old. —S. Buhner
