It’s been a long and winding road for the cannabis plant going from outlaw to essential business. Just as the popularity of cannabis has reached a zenith, exciting new forms of mind and consciousness-expanding agents from the plant kingdom that have existed for thousands of years, are just now reemerging in the spotlight.
Throughout the 50s and 60s psychedelic research was a young but flourishing field that saw exciting breakthroughs in treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, and conditions. Unfortunately, that promise quickly led to hysteria when LSD found its way out of the hands of doctors and into the hands of a small group of “outlaws” determined to turn on the world.
Many believe that psychedelics have always played a key role in human evolution. There is no question that psychedelic therapy offers tremendous benefits for treating PTSD and other psychological issues, as well as providing spiritual insights and preparation for the death transition. A remarkable renaissance is underway with advanced research and soon-to-be-legal therapeutic applications. The existing psychedelic research community is bracing, as did the cannabis community, for the commercialization of these plant medicines. This deeply insightful panel will clarify why now is the time for the liberation of all forms of healthy, consciousness-expanding plants, entheogens, and psychedelics.
