Psychedelics (also known as hallucinogens) are a class of psychoactive substances that produce changes in consciousness, perception, and mood states. While I have never tried Psychedelics, the research is promising for people that have exhausted other treatments for such issues as PTSD, mental illness, including depression, anxiety, and addiction, and have helped cancer patients come to terms with dying.
I have been a long-time admirer and follower of Michael Pollan's work. Pollan’s new bookHow to Change Your Mindprovides insight into challenging the long-time narrative dismissing these drugs as nothing more than a way to get high. The book has led to a new Netflix four-part documentary by the same name coming out on July 12th.
