    Great topic! We need more people discussing psilocybin therapy and how promising the studies are.

    It’s super interesting. Psilocybin and other psychedelics showed great promise in treatment and they had stopped because of the social mores at the time. Now as cannabis has become legal and people now have a more relaxed stance, we’re seeing the real benefit of a drug like psilocybin for treatment.

    It ranges from Treatment Resistant Depression, PTSD, End of life care, to even eating disorders

    Yeah, I’ve read all of the John Hopkins study papers on it. Even helps people quit cigarettes. John Hopkins even told the feds to make it schedule 4 (same category as xanax) but of course they didn’t listen.

    We're seeing progress though. They just decriminalized all drugs in Oregon. And British Columbia here in Canada is looking to do the same thing. It's really just going to be a matter of when.

    Will read later when I have the chance. I did mushrooms one time and had a f--- load. I went about 3 weeks no weed, cigarettes or alcohol after. Absolutely 0 craving too. It was fucken nuts, so weird pulling out a cigarette a day or two after and I'm like "actually nah cbf" and just had 0 desire to smoke it

    Sorry, completely spaced on reading this and did just now!

    I'm really fascinated by the use of LSD, shrooms, MDMA, etc. in therapeutic settings cuz I think people have been using drugs like these to self-medicate without even realizing it. And when you're in any mind-altered state music can be so important to the mood, even if it's something as mild as alcohol or weed.

    I'm really glad you included the Johns Hopkins playlist cuz I'm so curious as to what all these playlists might look like. Interesting there's so much classical music/music without many lyrics, but I spose it sorta makes sense.

    For sure. I always looked at mushrooms in a similar fashion to weed/cannabis. Just a more potent version of its hallucinogenic properties. As cannabis helps bring out nuances in music, and therefore help in the "clearing your mind out of cobwebs" aspect of psychology, so too can shrooms/psilocybin.

    Yeah. I wish the companies I interviewed were more transparent on what was on their own playlists, but imagine they were largely proprietary. IP laws are actually now a hot button issue when it comes to this kind of research. But the John Hopkins playlist at least gives us an idea on how the music is being approached.
