PsychēPlants is an information hub and e-health platform created by ICEERS for people interested in traditionally used psychoactive plants and fungi, those who use them, and health care professionals.

For millennia, psychoactive plants and fungi have played a major role in ceremonial practices in indigenous and pre-industrial societies. Today there is a growing interest in these ethnobotanicals for personal growth, healing, and spirituality. Some plant materials are also found as ingredients in ‘legal highs’ that are sold under different brand names in smart shops.

In order for people interested in having experiences with these plants to make responsible decisions, and for health professionals to have the ability to best support them, it’s important to foster greater understand of their cultural/historic background, current contexts of use, pharmacology, psychological effects, and legality. PsychēPlants offers evidence-based information and e-health support for the general public, people considering using (or who have used) traditional psychoactive plants, and for health care professionals.

ICEERS is a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming society’s relationship with traditionally used psychoactive plants. We do so by engaging with some of the fundamental issues resulting from the globalization of ayahuasca, iboga, and other ethnobotanicals.
