CANNABIS CULTURE – A Medicine Hunter and a non-profit organization promoting psychedelic healing will be providing free education on psychoactive plants to the global community.
According to a press release by the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies Canada (MAPS Canada), the “The Ethnobotany of Psychoactive Plants with Chris Kilham” is a four-episode mini-series, focusing on the relationship of humans with Ayahuasca, Kava, Coca, and Cannabis.
Kilham has spent decades doing medicinal plant research in over 45 countries, exploring different medicines used by different cultures. MAPS Canada Executive Director Mark Haden said of Kilham, “He is one of the most charismatic speakers that I have ever seen on the stage.”
This is part of a larger ongoing web series hosted by MAPS where over 50 scientists, doctors, luminaries, researchers, shamans, and experts have given their insights on the current “psychedelic renaissance,” which is occurring right now.
“Psychedelics offer a completely different model of healing,” Haden said, who started his career running addiction treatment programs. After being unable to get his employer to take psychedelic healing seriously, he decided to go on his own and start MAPS Canada in 2011.
