With the many studies being conducted on the potential benefits that psychedelic substances may offer to humans as well as the up and coming psychedelic companies, psychedelics are going mainstream, and you must be having lots of questions about these substances.

To educate yourself more on the spiritual and therapeutic potential of psychedelics, below are a few must-read psychedelic works that cover a range of related subjects with details on various clinical studies that have been done over the years.

  1. Drugged by Richard J Miller

Richard J Miller, a Northwestern pharmacology professor, was first introduced to psychedelics while attending Woodstock, a music festival that was held from August 15th to 18th, in 1969. He says that this “religious experience” is what inspired his pharmacology career. He wanted to find out how these substances altered the body’s neurochemistry so intensely.

The book takes you through Miller’s journey as he studies a range of mind-altering substances including cannabis, opium, coffee and antidepressants. The chapters that are dedicated to psychedelics offer great insights on their spiritual and clinical applications.

  1. Am I Dreaming? by James Kingsland

In his book, titled Am I dreaming? James Kingsland, a science journalist, takes a look at a broader view of various altered states of consciousness, including virtual reality, lucid dreaming, hypnotic trances as well as micro dosing with psychedelics.

He recounts his intense personal experiences with LSD, ayahuasca and psilocybin in the book. His journey is valuable to anyone interested in the science behind these psychedelic substances.

  1. Hallucinogens by Charles Grob

Charles Grob, a professor of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences from the UCLA Medical Center, was the first researcher that received approval to study ayahuasca and MDMA clinically in the 90s. His pioneering work in these spheres has significantly catapulted the psychedelic research field forward.

The 2002 release features writings of various thinkers, such as Terence McKenna, Ralph Metzner, Rick Strassman and Huston Smith as well as a Dr. Andrew Weil interview. The book ends with remarkable essays by Grob on the politics of MDMA research, the psychology of ayahuasca as well as the psychiatric research on hallucinogens.

  1. Psychedelic Medicine by Dr. Richard Louis Miller

Dr. Richard Louis Miller has been a clinical psychologist for more than 50 years. This book is a collection of interviews from his popular radio talk show, featuring Amanda Feilding, David Nichols, Roland Griffiths, Stanislav Grof, Dennis McKenna and Roland Griffiths. They cover various issues such as the use of MDMA as a treatment for PTSD and psilocybin for depression treatment.
