Inaugural World Psychedelics Day – June 20th (6·20)

World Psychedelics Day (WPD), launches Sunday, June 20th, 2021, celebrating a new era of rational and informed perspectives on modern day psychedelics and traditional psychoactive plant medicines. This annual event honours the breakthroughs in scientific and therapeutic psychedelic research and traditional Indigenous practices that have culminated in the current “Psychedelic Renaissance”.

Study Links Hallucinogen Use to Emotional Dysregulation, Risk Taking Among Youth

Unlike other hard drugs, hallucinogens such as LSD are seen as less likely to give rise to physical dependence and as less harmful.

However, few studies have examined traits such as emotion dysregulation, sensation and risk seeking and impulsivity, which are all taken into account when studying other hard drugs. In an attempt to fill this research gap, a group of…

The findings, which were reported in “Drug Sciences, Policy and Law,” discuss more than 20 anecdotal reports that describe how color blindness was improved after participants ingested drugs such as psilocybin and LSD.

Study Discovers Psilocybin May Have Lasting Benefits for Migraines

Researchers have been studying psilocybin in an attempt to discover any benefits the substance holds that may be useful to migraine sufferers. Psilocybin is found in magic mushrooms and is the main active ingredient responsible for the psychedelic effects mushrooms produce. The findings, which were reported in “Neurotherapeutics,” offer evidence that psilocybin may provide long-lasting therapeutic benefits to individuals who suffer from migraines. Over the years, anecdotal reports have claimed that psilocybin may lessen the symptoms of migraines. However, there hasn’t been enough scientific evidence to support these reports. This recently published study is the first placebo-controlled, double-blind study that…

Peyote: The Less-Known Psychedelic with Numerous Benefits

Psychedelics such as LSD, MDMA, ayahuasca and psilocybin have become popular in the last few years as researchers discover more about the substances and the therapeutic benefits they possess.
