The Journal of Unauthorized Research
on Visionary Plants and Drugs

The Entheogen Review
was a quarterly publication that served as a clearinghouse for data about the use of visionary plants and drugs. All communications were kept in the strictest confidence--unless otherwise requested, published material was identified only by the author's initials and state of residence. The mailing list was not for sale, rent, or loan. Think of The Entheogen Review as a network newsletter; the voice of a community of subscribers seeking and sharing information on the cultivation, extraction, and ritual use of entheogens. Subjective results experienced by readers were published too. The Entheogen Review published the latest, most accurate, and novel data possible on these and related topics. Edited by David Aardvark and K. Trout.


ER took a year off of publishing from Fall 2004 through Summer 2005. ER also took the year 2007 off from publishing. During both of these periods, subscriptions were extended by a year. 2008 was the last year that ER was produced as a quarterly periodical.
