Plants | Ethnobotanicals

Plants come in all shapes, sizes, colours and forms, but all are made up of a cocktail of either toxic and/or non-toxic, psychoactive and/or non-psychoactive-active chemicals. Plants that have at any time throughout history been used by humans are known as ethnobotanicals. The ethnobotanical plants of interest to us here contain chemicals that may provide beneficial effects to human health and vitality, enhancing connection, creativity, dreaming, dream recall, empathy, energy, euphoria, healing, meditation, memory, mood, pain relief, relaxation, sexuality, social-ability and/or spirituality. As such these plants are held in high regard and are highly sought after to be utilized as herbal remedies.

We divide our ethnobotanical plants into 7 handy categories based on their reported benefits: Energy Herbs, Dream Herbs, Health Herbs, Love Herbs, Relax Herbs, Spirit Herbs and Vape Herbs. We list the primary benefits first. Be aware that all herbs and herbal remedies sold by MindFuel are intended for external use only unless explicitly stated otherwise.
