“The meeting of minds was timely for several reasons. In fewer than nine months, Oregon’s nascent psilocybin industry can begin applying for licenses to manufacture, transport and sell the psychedelic derived from certain mushrooms for use in supervised therapy. And in October, Seattle became the nation’s largest city to decriminalize psilocybin.
And there was an official reason for the meeting: Washington’s flagship public university is creating a new research hub devoted to using psychedelics to treat addiction.”
“Psilocybin, a drug found in magic mushrooms, appears to free up the brains of people with severe depression in a way that other antidepressants do not, a study has found.
The results, based on brain scans of 60 people, mean the drug could treat depression in a unique way, the researchers say.”
Research results have been positive; a recent study showed MDMA reduced PTSD symptoms in 88 percent of patients, making it more effective than traditional SSRIs, which only work for around 60 percent of people. —
