Episode 239: ethnopharmacology (aya 03)

This is the third part of a four part mini-series recorded at the World Ayahuasca Conference in Girona, Spain. In this part we are going to spend time with Dennis McKenna.

Dennis McKenna is an ethnopharmacologist, research pharmacognosist, lecturer and author. He is the brother of well-known psychedelics proponent Terence McKenna and is a founding board member and the director of ethnopharmacology at the Heffter Research Institute, a non-profit organization concerned with the investigation of the potential therapeutic uses of psychedelic medicines.

In this episode, apart from the interview, you’ll also get to hear Dennis talk about the book he was involved with called Ethnopharmacologic Search for Psychoactive Drugs: 50 Years of Research (1967-2017). Check out the book here: www.espd50.com
