Below is a list of some of the common ethnobotanicals, along with their uses. This list is rapidly updating, so check back often!

*The (T) next to some of the Latin Names of the various ethnobotanicals indicate that the plant has been shown to display toxicity to humans (for example, the various species of Anadenathera will often induce emesis). Many of the plants in this category will only show toxic symptoms if used in excess, or over prolonged periods of time. These plants will have an (E/P) next to the (T). Please note however, that many individuals are sensitive to certain entheogens, and it is therefore imperative that further research (be it on this wiki, or on another website) be done on any plant before use. Plants with a (HT) beside their name indicate a high toxicity for more-or-less all individuals (e.g. the species belonging to the genus of Datura), and should thus never be used without the proper supervision, and treatment for a toxic reaction at hand.

**Names highlighted in red are known to be scheduled in the United States (as a whole). Please check with your local/state/country laws if you intend to do any further research on these plants (or any plant listed) however, as many states have their own laws on ethnobotanicals.
