Plants of the Gods: Their Sacred, Healing, and Hallucinogenic Powers

by Richard Evans Schultes Author, Albert Hoffman Author and Christian Rätsch Author

An updated, revised, and more science-y edition of the ethnobotanical classic book about psychoactive plants, their history, and their religious uses around the world. Includes an index of common hallucinogenic plants with photos and descriptions of each one, as its historical usage, gathering techniques, and chemical compounds. More photos show ceremonies in which these plants have been used and artwork representing visions they inspired. Originally published in 1992, the co-author Albert Hoffman is the discoverer of LSD.
