In September 2003, the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Office
of the Directors Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) came together and
supported a workshop entitled Psychoactive Botanical Products. The
presentations and ensuing discussion illustrated how little the scientific
community currently knows about the chemistry, biology, pharmacology, and
behavioral effects of psychoactive botanical (or natural) products and thus
this workshop served to identify gaps in our knowledge outlined in this
announcement. A summary for this workshop can be found at:

Under this PA, NIDA, ODS, and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH),
invite research grant applications that characterize the chemistry,
psychopharmacology, and/or toxicology of acute and chronic exposure to
psychoactive natural products, as well as the transition in the use of these
products to licit or illicit drugs of abuse. For the purposes of this PA,
psychoactive natural products are defined as fungus- or plant-derived
products that are taken primarily for their effects on the central nervous
system (e.g., stimulant, depressant, and/or hallucinogenic effects), rather
than for treatment, medicinal or therapeutic effects.
