Recommended reading: How To Change Your Mind – The New Science of Psychedelics by Michael Pollan.
Michael Pollan explores the history of psychedelics and shares recent research.
It’s a really interesting read and covers perspectives on psychedelics from different angles like history, politics, society, psychology, neurology, etc. mixed with personal insights and experiences. My guess is you’ll most likely learn a few things about psychedelics you don’t know yet.
As far as I know, there is no German translation yet.
Another recommendation is Michael Pollan’s Netflix documentary ‘Cooked’, where he looks at food and cooking. Every episode nurtured the nerd in me (for everyone who knows me – yes, there’s also a part about fermentation).
