From the dawn of time, man has harnessed the extraordinary powers offered up by the Earth in the form of plants and herbs without number. These treasures were created by God for the service of all man providing food for his sustenance and remedies for his healing. Through a proper and balanced use of these plants and herbs, the physician was able to produce, medicines, antidotes and poultices that took away pain, cured diseases and prolonged life. But like so many gifts of God, even these would fall to corruption; and the very medicines which the Lord hath created for our benefit had now become tools of Evil. Practitioners of witchcraft, sorceries, and shamanic magic would use these alchemical altered medicines to heighten perceptions and shatter the barriers of our reality, All in an attempt to communicate with beings from beyond the mortal realm. Some were so forward in this wickedness that entire religious customs and practices were created around particular drugs. In modern times some scholars have even gone so far as to suggest that mind altering drugs have influenced every major religious experience the world has ever known including those of Moses and the Biblical Prophets.
