    1 thought on “Pharmako/Gnosis: Plant Teachers and the Poison Path”

    1. I have to admit that I skimmed the second half of the text. I found it good, not great. The disjointed nature of the information made it somewhat difficult for me to follow. I appreciate the author's efforts to incorporate the chemistry/pharmacology/toxicology into the description of the botanicals, but having a degree in chemistry and having done my graduate work in toxicology, I found the science cursory at best. If I didn't have the background I do, I would have been left scratching my head. [...]

    2. If you're interested in psychoactive drugs, but don't want to take any (like me), this book is perfect for you. DMT, shrooms, LSD, and others are artfully described, including the scientific breakdown of how the drugs work and visions seen on them. The artwork alone justifies buying this book.

    3. Looking forward to reading the rest of the Pharmako series. Great references and beautifully interwoven accounts on hallucinogenic plants, shamans, anthropology. Almost like reading a case study of the experiences of humanity with certain chemicals.

    4. These beautiful tomes deal with the wonders, dangers, and possibilities of the most powerful chemists on earth, plants and fungi. Coming at the topic from an approach not unlike The Botany of Desire (maybe plants are far more aware than we give them credit), Mr. Pendell writes elegies to plant teachers that tie in everything from chemistry, astrology, poetry, prose, history, music and mythology. Though dealing with many dangerous "allies" (as Mr. Pedell calls his subjects), these books do not co [...]

    5. Pendell has surprised me yet again with another great book. Written in the style of Zen poetry meshed with anecdotal story-telling, Pendell takes us on an inner journey. This is the final book in his Pharmako trilogy, and it focused on psycedelic/entheogenic medicines. The only beef I had with the book was a 20+ page history of dragons, which seemed a bit out of place and unnecessary. The rest of the book was packed with valuable information and entrancing stories about medicines that fit into t [...]

    6. Pharmako/Gnosis: Plant Teachers and the Poison Path by Dale Pendell (Mercury House 1999) (615.321+/-). “Pharmacognosis” is the branch of pharmacology that deals with herbs and unprepared medicines in their natural state; this volume of three deals with visionary plants: hallucinogens and sleep aids/hypnotics among others. My rating: 7/10, finished 4/12/2015.

    7. Can't do any better than thisFrom the back:The Poet of PlantsPendell May be America's Answer to Blake, Coleridge and Wordsworth"-Emily Grenn, L.A. Times"!?#*! Beautiful" - Dr. Alexander T. Shulgin"A Beat Alchemist Working Textual DJ Decks" - Eric Davis

    8. This book is great, but the guy is not nearly as into mushrooms as he should be. That chapter was a bit of a wash. Still, the chapter on The Fool as an archetype is amazing.
