5.0 out of 5 stars A reference work! A masterpiece!, 2 Dec 2005

This review is from: The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants: Ethnopharmacology and Its Applications (Hardcover)
I took a bit of a chance with this book as it's quite an investment but it has exceeded my expectations BIG TIME! Most of the books on the subject were either 'How to grow your own home-grown' or 'The Holy Weed - why ganja is good for you' written by A. Hippee. Not exactly impartial or scientific.
This book looks at the active ingredients, how the drugs work, where they came from, how they spread through the world, and how they have been used in traditional cultures.
It is exhaustive, authoritative and elaborately illustrated. Magnificent!
*Please note - if you are thinking of buying this book to get tips on where to locate psychoactive plants and how to prepare them for use - forget it and refer to said texts above*

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW too much info!, 29 Oct 2009
This review is from: The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants: Ethnopharmacology and Its Applications (Hardcover)
This is a classic book! It exactly as it says in the title. Theres no doubt that this is the best book out there on the topic. YET if your looking for information on how to grow, take and doses on the plants, you might need to do more research!
Hope this helps!

5.0 out of 5 stars encyclopedia of psychoactive plants, 7 Jun 2013
This review is from: The Encyclopedia of Psychoactive Plants: Ethnopharmacology and Its Applications (Hardcover)
Best overall compendium of psychoactive plants available. So much info all in one place. A library of enthogenic plants , cultural use , effects , in some places dosage ( warning take care, not an experimenters cook book ) Worth every penny, don't waist your money on lesser coffee table publications, this is what your after if what your looking for is an extensively researched, scientifically based and enthusiastically written tome. Hours of quality reading on a fascinating subject by probably the world leading authority.
Comparatively you would have to spend thousand on specialist books and hours trawling through them to gleam half the knowledge held in this book. Also having a fore word by the late great Albert Hoffman is a bonus.
