jimson weed is very dangerous... inducing hallucinations and extreme body heat (fever) along with dehydration that can be fatal. 
The others can be dangerous as well.

The most promising supplements to help, notice I said help induce OBEs (because nothing will induce it on its own) :

Melatonin Supplements (regulate sleep cycles produced by pineal gland, can affect REM)
Vitamin B-12 (in high dose) (can help remain lucid while dreaming)
5-HTP (5-Hydroxytryptophan) supplements (precurser to seratonin in the brain)
DMT (this is illegal, but is naturally also found in your brain, made in your pineal gland and is one of the most potent natural hallucinogens)

I second Synergy's thoughts about jimson weed being very dangerous.
I actually had a personal experience where I drank a moderate amount of Angel trumpet tea (Brugmansia species of datura). I have no idea if the people and objects that I saw on that pyschedelic "trip' were physical, astral/ethereal or pure illusion/hallucination. In any event at no time during that experience was I in any condition/state of mind to deliberately induce and experience an astral/ethereal projection.

See, for me, the thing about using any substance AT ALL to help induce an OBE is just gonna ruin it for me. I STILL havn't managed to AP yet, and I want to do it clean the first few times. I figure if I have anything in my body that might induce it, I won't really know for sure if it was real, or just a trip.

But, to each his own, I guess.
