The Lycaeum supplies honest and unbiased information about all aspects of visionary plants, fungi, and chemicals; as well as providing a virtual meeting place for members of the psychedelic community.

The Lycæum was born from the Visionary Plants List (VPL), a now-retired Internet mailing list that was subscribed to by many people with a common interest in the entheogenic experience. It officially opened its doors on June 22, 1996, as a place where people from all around the world could freely exchange and research information regarding visionary plants, fungi, and chemicals. Since that time, they have had hundreds of millions of visitors and have grown to become one of the Internet’s largest hubs of drug information.

They consider psychedelic substances to be potentially valuable teachers and allies.
