Welcome to the world of psychotropic plants – plants that can affect your mental state! Across the globe, there has been a long tradition of using such plants for fun, for spiritual purposes, for self-exploration, for healing and sometimes for nefarious purposes. There’s a colourful spectrum of psychotropic plants and in the Psychotropic Plants Diploma Course, you’ll get an opportunity to explore plants at both ends of this spectrum, from the sedatives to the potent hallucinogenics.

To set you off on your journey safely, the course begins by imparting a foundational knowledge of neurochemistry. You’ll look at the structure and function of the nervous system and the chemistry behind the plant’s actions. You’ll also look at how these chemicals alter your body – and how you alter them!

From there you’ll explore the native and naturalised plants of the UK, which have links to the world of witchcraft, before moving onto the fascinating Fungi Kingdom, and specifically the psychotropic fungi growing around the world. Your studies will take you from the British woodlands all the way back to ancient Mexico.

You’ll take in more geography with the course, as you discover how psychotropic plants are used in North America, Central and Southern America, and Africa. You’ll take a quick spin around the globe as you uncover further psychotropic plants, learning just how deeply ingrained some of these are in other cultures. You’ll also become – legally – better acquainted with one of the most well-known psychotropic plants, cannabis, and the debates regarding its use and legal status.

Who is this course for?

Covering the subject step-by-step, the Psychotropic Plants Diploma Course can be enjoyed by anyone interested in the history, uses, and cultural significance of a class of plants that are too often dismissed as solely related to criminal activity.

Those who have studied the beneficial effects of herbs and plants on the body will also enjoy discovering this new take on their area of expertise.
