One example of a naturally occuring phenethylamine that would induce hallucinations is mescaline, as found in peyote cactus (lophophora williamsii), as well as some trichocereus cacti such as san pedro (trichocereus pachanoi), achuma (trichocereus bridgesii) and a few others (terscheckii, peruvianus, macrogonus). You may sometimes find the trichocereus cacti being labelled as echinopsis instead. I'm unsure as to any consistently reported entities resulting in the use of these cacti but they do have long standing traditional ritual uses.
Phenethylamines found in the human body include dopamine and epinephrine (adrenalin).
