The subject of episode 17 of Kratom Science Journal Club Dr. Jon Cachat and Brian Gallagher talk about an article from Portuguese scientists about “new” psychoactive substances of natural origin, some of which have been consumed responsibly for centuries, some of which are best used if you want to murder someone via poisoning them. Oh, please don’t take any portion of this podcast or any portion of KratomScience.com as medical advice, murdering advice, or any advice for any purpose. We talk about kratom, kava, mushrooms, datura, ayahuasca, khat, betel nut, jimson weed, mandrake, morning glory, and salvia divinorum.
