Richard Alan Miller has thoroughly researched the historical use, chemical structure, preparation for consumption, and magical rituals related to narcotic, hallucinogenic, stimulant, and depressant herbs. He explains how these natural substances can be used for the enhancement of sexuality, muscle relaxation and massage, initiation, spiritual growth, and astral projection. 

Provides a fascinating study of nineteen herbs that not only stimulate our energies, but also combat fatigue, assist healing, and relieve tension.

"This book provides a straightforward description of various, apparently legal, mind-altering herbs, broken down by effect."

"A fascinating selection, Miller's range of practical and arcane knowledge is impressive. This integration of the scientific with the mystical is one of the most interesting facets of the book."
