This chapter focuses on hallucinogens. The psychedelics or hallucinogens are probably the most complex and controversial, and in many ways are the most fascinating group of psychoactive compounds in our pharmacopoeia. Humans have used these agents — which are found in plants, fungi, and other animals — for millennia. Their nomenclature, chemistry and pharmacology, and effects are discussed.

Keywords: psychedelics; hallucinogens; drugs
