Interested to test for himself the effects of Cannibis Indica on the creative imagination, the narrator persuades a pharmacist friend to supply him with a small quantity of the drug and monitor its effects, and to also act as the narrator's amanuensis while he is under its influence. The narrator offers readers the story he imagined, and includes explanatory notes about the objects that inspired him.
