Hallucinogenic Plants of North America By Jonathan Ott

Publisher: Wingbow Press

Year: 1976

Format: Hardcover

Edition: First

Condition: Very good


First published in 1976, as the use of hallucinogenic plants was becoming more and more widespread, and the controversy concerning their potential dangers and possible benefits becoming less and less rational. New-age utopians defended their psychoactive properties on spiritual and aesthetic grounds, while past-age spokesmen condemned them with moral precepts. In presenting the objective data of what was the current scientific research, Hallucinogenic Plants of North America was one of the first books to attempt to restore the rationality to the ongoing controversy. This book was designed both to give the recreational user access to reliable, accurate information on hallucinogenic plants, and to serve as a multi-disciplinary reference source, presenting botanical, chemical, historical, and neuropharmacological data for students and laymen alike. Thirty representative hallucinogenic plants, ranging from the rainforests of Puget Sound to the deserts and tropics of Mexico, are described in botanical, chemical and historical terms.
