Want to learn More about Plant Medicines?
Substances which are classified as "Plant Medicines" (including Psilocybin mushrooms, Peyote, San Pedro, Kratom, Salvia Divinorum, Ayahuasca, and more) have a long & safe history of human consumption, with some advocates of their use suggesting that the practice is older than civilization itself.
These substances have profound ability to alter human thought process, outlook, and personality both in an acute & long term fashion, with the vast majority of changes being greatly beneficial to the subject. Many who undergo a plant medicine ceremony come out of it with greater empathy, drastically improved outlook, and the newfound ability to overcome either challenges they may currently be facing, or past traumas.
While the word Psychedelic more often connotes casual or recreational use, many substances (such as psilocybin mushrooms) can be classified as both Plant Medicines and Psychedelics, while other substances (such as Ayahuasca) are more aptly termed Plant Medicine due to the limited capacity for recreational use.
Another word commonly used to describe plant medicines is Entheogen - a term that is derived from the Greek word "entheos" which means “the god or divine within" and " gen" which means “create". So the literal translation of entheogen is “creating the divine within”.
