Abstract

The traditional use of psychoactive plants as sacramentals in spiritual and magical rituals has continued for thousands of years. The use of these sacred substances have long been reported to induce ostensibly paranormal phenomena such as clairvoyance, telepathy and precognition and have been used expressly for these and other psychic effects by the people who use them the world over. If these plants can and do induce genuine psi phenomena then what, if anything, might be inferred about the neurochemistry of psi from the known chemistry of these plants?
