An Eye-Opening Documentary Of The Ancient Fly Agaric Mushroom (Amanita Muscaria)

1018

This investigative documentary is the first installment of Sacred Weeds, a four part television series of documentaries that explores the cultural impact of psychoactive plants. In this episode, Dr Andrew Sherratt dives deep into the ancient history of perhaps the most famous of the hallucenogenic plant medicines, the Fly Agaric mushroom (Amanita muscaria).

To uncover the mystery behind the historic mushroom, Sherratt assembled a team of specialists to conduct a series of experiments in which volunteers consumed a controlled dose of the mysterious fungi. The researchers recorded everything over the next 72 hours to determine how the effects of these mushrooms relate to the sacred status they hold in some of the world’s earliest cultures.

I created this community in 2013 shortly after finishing high school and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned :)
