Overview

In the traditions of every culture, psychoactive plants—those known to transport the human mind into other dimensions of consciousness—have been regarded as sacred. In The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants , Christian Rätsch details the history, botany, and the use of more than 400 psychoactive plants. Beginning with 168 of the most well-known psychoactives, such as cannabis, datura, and papaver, he then presents 133 lesser known plants, additional plants known as "legal highs," and plant products that include substances such as ayahuasca, incense, and soma. The text is lavishly illustrated with 797 color photographs—many from the author's extensive fieldwork showing the people, ceremonies, and art related to the ritual use of the world's sacred psychoactive plants.
