Synopsis:

In PSYCHE DELICACIES, globetrotting medicine hunter Chris Kilham gives an impassioned defense of five plants that have all been maligned to greater or lesser degrees. Weaving his own entertaining and illustrative experiences with facts about the substance's origin and historical uses, Kilham strongly convinces that far from being bad for you, the five plants--coffee, kava, chili peppers, chocolate, and the ever-controversial cannabis--will help prevent and remedy physical health problems, and boost mental and emotional health.There aren't many folks around who haven't had at least one of these substances and enjoyed it, and that's part of Kilham's point: We all yearn for the sensations of pleasure and wellness that these psychoactive plants provide. In essays about each of these mistrusted plants, Kilham uncovers hidden facts and scientific studies that point out each substance's health benefits, and he relates fascinating stories found in the field and compiled from other sources. Whether avid coffee drinker or chili pepper aficionado, chocolate lover or part-time cannabis user, no one will feel guilty about moderate use after reading PSYCHE DELICACIES, which shows that partaking of these substances is no vice or even mere indulgence, but is in fact an invitation to goo health, well-being, and pleasure.
