Magic Mushrooms by Peter Stafford

Description

There are more than 100 “entheogenic” fungi known to stimulate ecstatic states in those who use them. In this provocative guide, Peter Stafford probes the history of these ancient, popular — and misunderstood — natural psychoactive substances. The most famous of the fungi are here, including the psilocybin variety, along with more esoteric mushrooms such as fly agaric, panther caps, and soma. This handbook includes photographs, illustrations, charts, tables, and chapters on the history, botany, chemistry, mental and physical effects, and preparation of magic mushrooms.
