Large catalog with a wide selection of alternative titles. Section on drug literature contains some psychedelic titles.
Mind Books has put together the finest selection of books of any
company listed here.With almost 250 titles in stock, you will discover
many books you never knew existed as well as all of the classics. Their
catalog is so thorough and complete that I am left speechless.
A huge listing of audio and video tapes; certainly the best selection available anywhere. Their service can be slow, so be patient; their selection is worth the wait.
Ho Ti sells live plants only and has great prices on Salvia Divinorum.
Offers "Herbs, seeds and plants utilized by shamans, seers and curanderos
of the earth."
LER sells plants, seeds, herbs, teas, books, essential oils, homeopathic
remedies, smoking blends and more. Their website lists a vastly expanded
selection of botanicals; do they really keep all of these in stock? Order
and find out. Reccomended.
TAC sells mostly seed packets of many diverse plants that have desirable ethnobotanical/phytochemical properties, and on a few select species they occasionally carry small amounts of dried plant matter as well. Even if you have no need for any new occupants in your garden patch, their catalog is worth taking a look at for its many lovely color photos of mature specimens of some of their offerings, some of which I have not yet seen represented pictorially elsewhere on the net.
Professional catalog with an extensive list of growing supplies,
books, spawn and cultures. They do not carry any psychoactive strains of
mushrooms, but their catalog is worth examining for the large selection
of supplies offered. The owner of this company, Paul Stamets, is the author
of The Mushroom Cultivator and Growing Gourmet and Medicinal
Mushrooms, two of the best books written on the subject. His newest
book, entitled Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World: An Identification
Guide, was published in September of 1996.
This company has developed the easiest method around for mushroom
cultivation. You won't need a sterile glove box or have to worry about
contamination as much as with other techniques.The only problem is low
yield; you won't grow as many mushrooms with their approach as with other
methods. However, if you are a newcomer to mushroom cultivation and want
to invest in the smallest amount of equipment, then this is a good technique
to start with. All you will need is a small pressure canner or microwave
oven, canning jars, and a 10 gallon aquarium or plexiglass to build an
equivalent container. Psylocybe Fanaticus sells spore syringes, which are
10cc syringes filled with spores and water. One syringe will inoculate
up to 10 1/2 paint jars, which should be plenty to get you started. The
growing instructions are accurate and easy to follow.
This is a relatively new (to me, at least) addition to the community
of on-line entheogenic businesses. Aside from the usual spore prints, kits,
& accessories, they also offer some rather unique items, including
a series of really nicely done mugs honoring Maria Sabina, Albert Hoffman,
various species of fungi and other notable psychedelic people and materials.
I personally couldn't think of a better gift for your favorite psychonaut
on their birthday, etc.
This company supplies dried psilocybin mushrooms to their customers
in countries where they are currently legal. They also carry sporeprints,
spore syringes, and a small selection of botanicals.
This is an excellent newsletter written by Richard Glen Boire, Esq.,
an attorney who specializes in apellate drug cases. Its purpose is to "provide
the latest information and commentary on the intersection of entheogenic
substances and the law." TELR is well written and keeps confusing legal
jargon to a minimum. Highly reccomended.
This is a one-of-a-kind publication in which subscribers write in about their own experiences with psychoactive plants and chemicals. They share specific and detailed information about cultivation, extraction, preparation and ritual usage. If you have a question or an experience that you wish to share, you can write in and possibly have your letter printed. The enormous amount of misinformation, speculation, myth and innuendo surrounding entheogens and their use makes this newsletter a much needed forum for sharing techniques of proper plant usage. They have devoted quite a bit of space to Ayahuasca analogues, plant sources of DMT, MAO inhibitors, and Salvia Divinorum. You'll also find useful information on morning glory seeds, San Pedro preparation, Amanita Muscaria, and much more. The esteemed editors are knowledgeable, level-headed arbiters amidst the maelstrom of questionable information out there. NOTE: The above link appears to be dead, and I have been as yet unable to find out whether or not the Review still maintains a website. However, they are well worth your $0.32 to contact via snail mail, which you may do via the following address:
With 250 issues published, High Times has been around since the mid-70's
and is still going strong. While mostly focused on Cannabis, psychedelics
still get mentioned regularly within its pages. Last year's "best of" issue,
#17, was devoted exclusively to psychedelics. Editor Peter Gorman occasionally
writes articles detailing his travels to many parts of the world to study
ethnobotanicals and their use by indigenous peoples. He has written about
such diverse subjects as his journeys to the Amazon to experience Ayahuasca
and psychoactive tryptamine-based snuff preparations to a trip to New York
City to visit with the Temple of the True Inner Light and sample their
sacrament, DPT (cousin to the holy grail of modern psychonauts, DMT.)
Headed by ex-Psychedelic Illuminations editor and psychonaut extraordinaire James Kent, this amazing magazine jumped to the head of the pack of the entheogen-oriented press when its premiere issue hit the stands last year. Aesthetically pleasing, informative, and immaculately produced, this is one publication that defiinitely deserves your subscription money. I simply can't reccomend this one highly enough!
