Abstract
Out of the vast array of species in the plant kingdom variously estimated at from 200,000 to 800,000 a few have been employed in primitive societies for millennia to induce visual, auditory, tactile, and other hallucinations. Because of their earthly effects that often defy description, they have usually been considered sacred and have played central roles as sacraments in aboriginal religions (Schultes 1969a).
