The term "psychedelic" taken from Osmond (1957), is used here to refer to a group of substances whose primary effect on human subjects is the radical alteration of consciousness, perception and mood. They have been variously called "psychotomimetic," "hallucinogenic," "psychotogenic," "consciousness-expanding," "consciousness-altering," or "mysitcomimetic." No attempt is made here to describe or analyze the subjective psychological effects of these drugs and plants, and the reader may be referred to the excellent reviews by Osmond (1957) and Unger (1963) for this purpose.
