The three-fold purpose of MEDICINE HUNTER, INC. is to promote natural, plant-based medicines, to protect the natural environment, and to support indigenous cultures. The company was founded by CHRIS KILHAM, a medicine hunter, author, educator and TV personality who has conducted medicinal plant research in over 45 countries and lectures worldwide about holistic wellness and botanical medicines. As a guest expert on TV in U.S. and international markets, he advocates for traditional botanical medicines, including psychoactive and psychedelic plant medicines such as cannabis. Chris has been featured in The New York Times, Outside Magazine, Psychology Today, LA Weekly and Newsweek and appeared on CNN, NBC Nightly News, The Dr. Oz Show, ABC Good Morning America, ABC Nightline, ABC 20/20 and many other top-tier media venues. He has written fourteen BOOKS, including The Ayahuasca Test Pilots Handbook, Psyche Delicacies and The Five Tibetans, which has been published in over 28 languages.
Chris Kilham is quick to wave off CNN’s branding of him as the “Indiana Jones of natural medicine,” however if you look at the trajectory of his work, research and travels around the world, the moniker seems just right. This prolific medicine hunter, author and educator has traveled to over 45 countries for medicinal plant research. His global expeditions include traditional botanical medicines, nutraceuticals, and psychoactive plants. He’s also very well-known in the natural health and sustainability sectors. If you’d like to hear more from Chris Kilham you can check out his session with Green Flower , now streaming on Green Flower INSIDER.
“From a pure health standpoint in terms of addressing what we perceive as bodily needs, which I would suggest are broader than that, the information on cannabis just gets better and better.” – Chris Kilham
