Psychoactive Plants
Coast to Coast AM | Radio Interview
with host George Noory

Medicine Hunter Chris Kilham talks about “Psychoactive Plants” on the nationally syndicated radio show Coast to Coast AM, with host George Noory.

Medicine hunter Chris Kilham is referred to by CNN as the Indiana Jones of Natural Medicine. In the first half, he talks about plants and herbs that enhance connection with the spirit world and healing. Working with companies to develop and popularize traditional plant-based food and medicinal products, he has traveled to such exotic locations as the Amazon, Congo, and Siberia. While researching kava on the island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific during the 1990s, he learned that the plant provides a sense of tranquility and relaxation. Its popularity has spread in the ensuing years -- there are many kava bars in the US now -- you might see patrons speaking softly as one of the effects of the plant is that hearing becomes more acute, he noted.

He describes a region in Siberia, where cannabis was grown everywhere, and speaks about ayahuasca, first used by shamans in the Amazon. The psychoactive concoction is derived by mixing two plants, one of which activates the DMT in the other. It offers intensely transformational experiences, he reported, including remarkable healing visions and realizations. Kilham also details some of the dangers that have arisen on his travels, including disease, pirates, and transportation mishaps, as well as many of the bizarre food and drinks he's partaken. These include frog blender drinks, fried scorpions, snake liquor, and grubs.
