So I thought I'd self-compose a little article that draws on the abstract from the pertaining review, as well as explore Epigenetics for those unfamiliar with this biological field of study.

    Adapted From Chapter 19 of The Psychedelic Explorer’s Guide by Jim Fadiman If you have any familiarity with LSD use, you’ve probably heard the expression “Set and Setting.” It was coined by Norman Zinberg to describe the context for psychedelic drug experience and has become widely accepted by researchers in psychedelic therapy.

  10. Long-term systemic treatment with lysergic acid diethylamide causes retinal damage in CD1 mice

Recent publications, like Michael Pollan's How to Change your Mind, showcase the creative and potentially therapeutic...
