Great book and great book review by Sociedelic.com!

If you are curious about psychedelics and want to potentiate your personal spiritual transformation, transcend your inner-demons, and deal with that infamous '' bad-trips'', this Richard L. Haight book is for you!  

The journey Haight tells us about involves the use of three ancient shamanic plants: Ayahuasca, magic mushrooms and 

He tells us his story of experimentation and about his quest for enlightenment through psychedelics and how he tries to bridge the two factions within the awakening community: Those who look negatively upon the use of these substances and those who are more open to the idea. 

Haight will walk you through his experiments with detail along with scientific information about the substances along with their potential medicinal uses, legal status, safety info and methods on how to use them. 

We close this review with a great quote from Haight: 

My hope is that this work be of some aid to you in your life and on your path of awakening, regardless of whether you incorporate psychedelics into your path. It is not my intent to persuade the reader one way or the other, regarding psychedelics, but instead, to offer a fresh perspective that will help you to have penetrating clarity in all that you do.

Mushrooms Are the Safest Drug

.

..

Well, what do you know... According to a survey done in 2017, the safest drug (aside from legal risks) is psychedelic mushrooms.  Even marijuana is three times riskier than mushrooms. 

Although the different psilocybin mushrooms across the world vary in size, shape, and potency, they are relatively safe with few and relatively mild adverse effects reported,” says Dr. Adam Winstock, a psychiatrist, addiction specialist, and founder of the annual Global Drug Survey.

Thre are many elements that make magic mushrooms safer.  The most important is that they are not physically or psychologically addictive, you simply won't become hooked on them. 

Also, people take them less frequently, most people will use them 3 times a year or even over their lifetime.
