As far as I know, this archive is only available in 1080 x264. If anybody wants a big project to work on, you could make a x265 archive too, if you really want it...

If anyone wants 720p x265, please ask.

I'd love a x265 format. 720 or 1080 would be great.

Someone on this comments' section the other year said they found an existing archive of this show as x265 here:

Thanks so much.

I loved the Cactus Apprentice - I REALLY want to find some to take.

Season 3 has been out for a year, why haven't I seen it lol

I think it was airing last year and I uploaded it once a week, but never in an archive. It's always better all in one place.

From what I understand, Hamilton is probably finished making these shows, so this archive of Seasons 1 to 3 are complete for the entirety of the show now.

In Canada we are now able to order mushrooms and LSD in the mail or in some specialty stores. I am still intrigued by synthetic DMT, if I could ever get that, a glass pipe and some major balls of steel, I would definitely go for it!

Yeah I did Changa.

I popped up out of my body into a room where a woman had me tied to a chair and was feeding a snake down my throat.

Possibly a metaphor for my whole life.

Holy smackaroons!

Yeah, I'd hope for fractal geometry and technicolor, like Alex Grey paintings, but I suspect I would get some pretty crazy, dark shit at first, until my pineal gland decalcified!

It was all fractal geometry and technicolor too

It's intense, sure, but it doesn't last long enough to really mess with most people.Experience has taight me that If you're used to triptamines like psylocibin, you're fine. Ayahuasca and other compounds that include MAOI's and last longer can be absolutely terrifying though.

I honestly think people talk about how "insane" it is because they know few will ever get a chance to try it, and they want to make themseleves look like a badass. This tends to wear off in most people's mid 20's - early 30's. I guess it's also probably described as it is so often is so that it's not people's gateway into psychedelics because of it short duration. I'm sure a lot of people look at 8hrs on acid and 4 on boomers as too long and think "what if I just take the one that lasts 30 minutes the first time and see how it goes?"

Terence McKenna had a kind of method or way of doing DMT that required really prolonged hits of DMT inhalation and holding it in, such that one went "past the Chrysanthemum" - meaning there are supposedly different levels of the DMT experience, like a lower dose and a really strong dose where you apparently burst through into this kind of higher threshold where there appear to be entities and all kinds of crazy shit going on.

I would probably opt for a smaller dose first! But interestingly enough, DMT resin and also DMT vape cartridges are now available in my part of the world - even through online order. The synthetic powder, or resin, is apparently the preferred method by afficionados of psychedelics, like brothers McKenna, and smoked in a glass pipe. But now they have found a way to make vape cartridges of it too, which maybe requires smoking more, because it could be diluted or something along those lines. I heard Dennis McKenna say recently that he didn't recommend the vape method, but I didn't hear him explain just why that was...

try , that's where i get my exotic mushrooms and cacti ;) very reliable and no i don't make any cashola for refering you!

I have been having issues with making The Pirate Bay/ConCen multi-tracker torrents. I usually end up having to disable TPB announce URL to get it to seed on my seedbox. But even then, I noticed with this particular torrent, it will go in bursts. Upload for a few minutes, then stop for a bit, then back again. Right now it isn't seeding, even though there are 3 peers. So I am not sure why that is, but I think they are in limbo trying to connect...


worth seeding.

This is by far the most popular torrent I have going on my seedbox. In the past 6 months or so it has uploaded 11.80TB to about 200 different downloaders...

Aren't there earlier, maybe shorter, documentaries that he did before Season 1 was commissioned?

Perhaps we should build a collection of those.

Yes! Here's the list:
"Underground LSD Palace" is particularly epic.

Will check to see if they are all on there. Underground LSD Palace is.

I never knew of earlier documentaries, apart from 'The Sapo Diaries', which is seeded here. I will try to track down the others. At least one or two on that IMDB list were official episodes, but most of the others I have never heard of...

Found a nice 2GB 1080p of The Sapo Diaries from 2009.
I don't know that I've ever watched that, it must be his first big work.

From the IMDB, I can't find any of these, but I suspect they might be different names for others
Getting High on Krystle (LSD Underground Palace?)
Hamilton and the Philosopher's Stone
Tanks for the Memories (Sensory Deprivation Tanks)

From VICE's YouTube channel:
2012-05 Underground LSD Palace [r7qliVpGEk0].mp4
2012-10 The Rise of Psychedelic Truffles in Amsterdam [Y8vaRVwF0xA].mp4
2012-11 Nzambi - Investigating the Haitian Zombie
2013-04 Sensory Deprivation Tanks
2013-09 Medical Miracles with Ambien [KTFicgrVk0w].mp4
2014-01 Swaziland - Gold Mine of Marijuana
2014-04 Getting High On HIV Medication [wyuFBmlQS_s].mp4
2016-07 Meet the Man Behind a Synthetic Marijuana Steampunk Rock Opera [f2SOcj-82H0].mp4

The question is, are there other works not on the IMDB?

It's confusing when they post clips on their channel with interesting names, that turn out just to be from other episodes.

Yes, The Sapo Diaries is about a frog in South America that injects victims with a psychoactive substance when it bites them, from what I remember. I think that must have been his first documentary, as it seemed to be a pilot episode of what he was hoping to become what is 'Hamilton's Pharmacopeia'. I can't find any of the others, such as the one about Ambien etc. I am definitely familiar with drugs like Ambien lolol

Clipper do a nice blend of Chamomile, Lavender and Lemon Balm in the UK called "Snore and Peace".


In the interest of full disclosure, Ambien made me psychotic and I was brought to the psych ward by police once, a long time ago. Ambien and Big Pharma is evil.

I agree, natural is definitely the way to go. Also 'Ashwagandha'....
