About this Mini-Series: The relationship between people and psychoactive plants dates back to antiquity. For healing, revelation and spiritual exploration, psychoactive plants lubricate the mind and reveal new dimensions of perception. Drawing upon decades of ethnobotanical exploration in the field, medicine hunter Chris Kilham will share his experiences with four key psychoactive plants (ayahuasca, kava, coca, and cannabis), the places where they are employed, and the people who work with them. Personal accounts and rare images bring these accounts vividly to life.
