Botany, Horticulture or something else?
Hopefully nobody gets mad at me for asking this, but I really dont know and have searched for a while now. What I am wanting to learn is the following...
How to grow plants and flowers, how to get extracts and herbs from them properly, what the effects the plant can have (for example a certain amount of properly extracted Red Spider Lily will cause vivid/lucid dreams), how much should be injested to get the effects, etc.
Basically I am wanting to learn what the Native Americans and Western Civilizations knew way back in the day. I want to learn how to cure ailments like skin rashes, headahes, muscle pains, digestive problems, etc., but I admit I also want to know about the ones that cause lucid dreams, hallucinations, etc. But I really dont know what this kind of study is, Ive had so many people tell me different things I got a headache from it all. Figured here atleast someone will actually know what it is I am trying to learn so that I can go where I need to go online to learn it.
Thanks for any help.
