Quote:Comparing this data to standardized screening measures for mental health, the researchers found that neither lifetime psychedelic use nor use of LSD in the past year were independent risk factors for mental health problems—and that, in fact, psychedelic users had lower rates of mental health issues.

Quote:Another recent study at the University of South Florida, for instance, found that psilocybin mushrooms erase conditioned fear response in mice, suggesting they could potentially be used to cure PTSD—and that psilocybin can even prompt growth of brain cells.

"A recent study at Johns Hopkins showed that a small number of longtime smokers who had failed after many attempts to kick their habit were able to do so after a controlled and monitored use of psilocybin within the context of a cognitive behavior therapy treatment program. The abstinence rate for participants in the study was at 80 percent six months after the study."

I'm sure it wouldn't benefit everyone, but I can definitely see that changing some perceptions.

spock.gif Interesting topic, but it's not something I would recommend to just anyone.
Most people I knew that did it, did so and were quite okay.
No biggie.
Then there were the few that did things I wont even go into damned.gif

What was the mental state of those that didn't fare well, JR?

"Should I trip again?

Maybe the drug you are having a problem with really isn't for you, but "bad" trips aren't necessarily a sign that it's just flat out time for someone to stop using, as much as that there's been something wrong with their mindset and/or preparation and maybe they need to approach things a little differently the next time.

Now that the trip is over, consider the following, and any other possible causes on why his trips seem to have a tendency to turn out rather rough:
Have you been trying to cope with some kind of mental burden or troubles in your personal life? Psychedelics have a nasty way of bringing out suppressed mental issues, and can easily exacerbate existing ones.
Did you feel safe and comfortable with the people and place you tripped in?
Have you had similar reactions to other drugs of the same type?
Is the anxiety in part provoked by something like the actual duration of the trip itself?"

https://www.drugs-forum.com/forum/showwi...:_bad_trip

"True, the LSD trip duration is way too long and lingers on and on which caused me anxiety - but the subsequent flashback wasn't too bad at all.
There is no getting around the role of luck here. If you are lucky, and you take the right drug, you will know what it is to be enlightened (or to be close enough to persuade you that enlightenment is possible). If you are unlucky, you will know what it is to be clinically insane. While I do not recommend the latter experience, it does increase one’s respect for the tenuous condition of sanity, as well as one’s compassion for people who suffer from mental illness."

If you look at the psychedelic art video I posted above, most have nakedness (mostly women's nakedness) within. I wonder as a woman and an artist, would I envision naked men on my quest?

I've been trying to tell people this for a while now. Except when you tell them the truth they think you are crazy. So what if psychedelics can change ones life, that's the whole damn point. People just don't think critical anymore these days. Psychedelics are meant to change ones perspective and views on life but they are classified as schedule 1 drugs. Really makes you think. The powers that be don't want us to have these experiences. We might see something that makes us not want to be such mindless consumers and capitalists anymore. We might want to live in nature and be at peace. Of course this is all dangerous for the powers that be , they can't have free humans running around now can they? Everyone needs to have a job in order to play into their system so that they are controlled by money. Strange how many people never question such systems that limit them to narrow roles they were never meant to serve. People have so much potential and it makes me sad to know that people have been forced into roles that really won't make a difference in the world. People just keep repeating the same cycles over and over again and when I point these things out of course I am the one who's crazy. Funny world we live in.

Hi AP. You are thinking intellectually and we are all not built that way. I would guess that some overly emotional people taking the trip may succumb to their fears and personality or mental weaknesses.

It all depends many can benefit from a spiritual aspect if you have that mind set and can be free with it.
If you have mental issues and give in to demons, greed, hate etc it could cause a very bad trip.
There is medical uses for it to help with brain trauma etc but the neanderthal sellouts running the FDA ignores & discredits natural medicine.

Quote:There are a number of reasons for this psychedelic revival. For one thing, psychedelics have proven to have a certain staying power. Stamped down countless times, abandoned for various reasons, they nevertheless somehow manage to pop up like mushrooms from one generation to the next. Timing is also a part of it. A dynamic back and forth relationship between psychedelics and Eastern spirituality has existed since the nineteenth century. In the fifties Buddhists and Hindu texts inspired aristocratic British exiles like the writers Gerald Heard and Aldous Huxley to seek an experiential illumination through psychedelics. In the sixties the same psychedelic experience inspired American academicians like Timothy Leary and Richard Alpert (Ram Dass) to investigate Eastern texts and practices.

Quote:And yet, the most interesting part of the experience for Watts was nor this ecstatic and sublime state, but the moment of return to the ordinary state of mind. There "in the twinkling of an eye" lay the realization "that so-called everyday or ordinary consciousness is the supreme form of awakening. of Buddha's anuttara-sanryak-sambodhi." But this realization, remembered clearly enough, soon faded. "It is thus," concluded "that many of us who have experimented with psychedelic chemicals have left them behind, like the raft which you used to cross a river and have found growing interest and even pleasure in the simplest practice of zazen, which we perform like idiots, without any special purpose.

It was never in the drugs.
It was always in your head.

Conflict in some form or another seems to be the common tie.
On friend was fighting with his girlfriend at a party they threw, he took a LOT of trip, and shot himself in the head in front of a bunch of other tripping people.
That was an instant trigger for a bad trip for everyone who saw it.
a few people got violently ill.
