#113 My awesome guest this week is Dennis Mckenna an expert in
pharmacology, psychedelics and their therapeutic use. He is also
the brother of the late Terrence Mckenna.
There's a lot of misconceptions around psychedelics, and I wanted to bring Dennis onto the show to help us get a better understanding of them and their uses. Having experienced an ayahuasca ceremony myself, this really had a profound impact on my life, so my interest grew from there. So having someone like Dennis on the show to share his fast knowledge and wisdom was an honor. Enjoy!
About Dennis Mckenna: Dennis McKenna has conducted research in ethnopharmacology for over 40 years. He is a founding board member of the Heffter Research Institute, and was a key investigator on the Hoasca Project, the first biomedical investigation of ayahuasca. He is the younger brother of Terence McKenna.
