Tihkal: The Continuation

By Alexander Shulgin, Ann Shulgin

TiHKAL is a 1997 publication written through Alexander Shulgin and Ann Shulgin a few relatives of psychoactive medicines often called tryptamines. A sequel to PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i've got recognized And Loved), the entire identify of the e-book is Tryptamines i've got recognized And enjoyed: The Continuation.

TiHKAL, very like its predecessor PiHKAL, is split into components. the 1st half is a fictionalized autobiography, carrying on with the place PiHKAL left off, however it then maintains right into a choice of essays. those essays diversity from psychotherapy and the Jungian brain to the superiority of DMT in nature, ayahuasca and the conflict on medicinal drugs. the second one a part of TiHKAL is an in depth synthesis handbook for fifty five psychedelic compounds (many came across by way of Alexander Shulgin), with dosages, chemical constitution and qualitative comments.

Like PiHKAL, the Shulgins have been encouraged to unlock the synthesis details for you to defend the public's entry to information regarding psychedelic compounds, a objective Alexander Shulgin has famous time and again. Following a raid of his laboratory in 1994 by means of the U.S. DEA, Richard Meyer, spokesman for DEA's San Francisco box department, said that "It is our opinion that these books are pretty well cookbooks on the way to make unlawful medications. brokers inform me that during clandestine labs that they have got raided, they've got discovered copies of these books." this angle emphasised Shulgin's have to free up the data to make sure its protection, and resulted in the discharge of TiHKAL and his different publications.
