Scientists are starting to look at hallucinogens again as a means of therapy and guess what? They work. No shit. They’re starting to look deeper into psilocybin, the active hallucinogen found in mushrooms, which makes sense: that monster of a drug Tim Leary invented – LSD – lasts upwards of fourteen hours, which is a bit much for a single session. . . unless you’re being indoctrinated into an order of Incan priests. Then maybe.
On a side note, I don’t know who the chick is that they interviewed for this piece, but she’s got some seriously weird issues if you ask me. I’ve done a ton of shrooms in my time, but I’ve never felt as though my heart was ripping open.
Seriously, you might want to have a doctor look into that. . .
