Iím seeking information on the use of psychoactive drugs in Bronze Age Crete. We know the Minoans were familiar with Opium, and alcohol. They probably did not have the classic hallucinogens: the Fly Agaric and Psilocybin mushrooms, or Ergot, and most certainly not the Mescal and Peyote cactuses.
The Aegean version of the Sea Daffodil (Pancratium Maritimum) is not hallucinogenic, although an African cousin, Pancratium Trianthum, is reputedly so.
Does anyone know whether European plants such as Henbane (Hyoscyamus niger), Mandrake (Mandragora officinarum), Deadly Nightshade (Atropa belladonna), Hemlock (Conium maculatum), Monkshood (Aconitum napellus) or Thornapple (Datrura strammonium) grew in Bronze Age Crete?
