Shrooms Vs. LSD: Are They the Same?

During the general elections held in November 2020, Oregon voters made history by passing Measure 110 and Measure 109. The former decriminalizes the possession of small amounts of all illicit substances while the latter allows adult use of psilocybin mushrooms in a therapeutic setting.

The sitting justices stated in a unanimous ruling that as compared to protections in the U.S. constitution, the right of religion in the New Hampshire constitution was stronger. Under the U.S. constitution, sterner balancing tests are required in the event that the illegal drugs in question are used for religious practices. The…

Researchers Develop Synthetic Ibogaine to Treat Depression, Addiction

Ibogaine is a psychoactive substance that triggers hallucinations; the substance is found in the Apocynaceae family of plants. Ibogaine has been used in spiritual ceremonies by the Bwiti tribe of Gabon for centuries. However, it wasn’t until the ’50s that ibogaine became popular in the West as a treatment for depression and addiction.

Still, it was used by researchers recently to develop a non-hallucinogenic, non-toxic chemical cousin that helps tackle addictive and depressive behaviors in rodents.…
