Definitions for "Psychedelic"
Literally translates to 'revealing mind'. A class of plants and drugs (ex.- peyote, mescaline, psilocybin, LSD) which can produce profound "ASC"'s. Clinical research conducted into the use of psychedelics during the 1960s and 1970s indicated a possibility that the use of these drugs sometimes enhanced "psi" abilities, as claimed by tribal "medicine men" and "shamans", who ritualistically employed these drugs in native or aboriginal religious rites.
