Globally, we are experiencing a shift to all-natural products. This includes food, soap, cleaning products, and much more. Now, we are picking up on all-natural medicine. Starting with CBD and THC, we are also seeing psilocybin mushrooms and other psychedelics as a replacement for pharma drugs. Read on to see how.
Psychedelic research has been around since the 1960s, but only in top government facilities. Now, western medicine is looking into it. John Hopkins is currently leading psychedelic medicine research right now. MAPS is another major research group. They are both looking into psilocybin (magic) mushrooms (also called “shrooms”), LSD, acid, and ecstasy. While all of these are still federally illegal, these drugs will probably follow the same law trend as marijuana. Right now, mushrooms are decriminalized in Denver, CO, and Portland, OR.
The focus is to treat mental problems. Psychedelics can cause an increase in happiness, so it can kill a depression spell. In more serious sessions, they will use them to help the patient face personal issues and resolve them. Thus, it can create true inner peace and contentment. Hopefully, it can be used to help our soldiers recover from PTSD, and help others who have gone through traumatic moments. These treatments have no lasting negative side effects and likely do not affect other medications, unlike pharmaceutical drugs. John Hopkins and MAPS are also studying other uses and treatments, such as cancer and pain relief.
The movement is picking up and spreading! In 2019, Johnson & Johnson released a ketamine-derived nasal spray. There are conferences all over the world discussing it and giving psychedelics more momentum. There will be a major conference in Colorado in 2023. Let us know what you think about the psychedelic medicine movement! Are you ready to ditch harmful pharmaceutical drugs?
