This is the phantastica class, which includes the visionary plants and chemical hallucinogens like magic mushroomsthe San Pedro cactus, d-lysergic acid diethylamide LSD and N-N-dimethyltryptamine DMT.
The books form an interrelated suite of works that provide the reader with a unique, reliable, and often personal immersion in this medically, culturally, and spiritually fascinating subject. These beautiful tomes deal with the wonders, dangers, and possibilities of the most powerful chemists on earth, plants and fungi.
