Psychedelics Promising for Anxiety, Depression, Addiction, and PTSD (Dr. Evan Wood)
The studies, which explored the possibility of a connection between mental health problems and psychedelic drug use, found that there is no link between psychedelics and mental health conditions such as psychosis.
“The re-emerging paradigm of psychedelic medicine may open clinical doors and therapeutic doors long closed”, writes Dr. Evan Wood, Professor of Medicine and Canada Research Chair, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC.
Psychedelic drugs like LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide), psilocybin (found in “magic mushrooms”), dimethyltryptamine (DMT), mescaline, and methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) are substances that have a strong effect on a person’s “conscious experience”, according to a statement from the Canadian Medical Association Journal.
