#PSYCHEDELICS Turn on, tune in, and heal thyself! #HEALTH

Psychedelics ...



"Mushrooms are the safest of all the drugs people take recreationally, according to this year’s Global Drug SurveyOf the more than 12,000 people who reported taking psilocybin hallucinogenic mushrooms in 2016, just 0.2% of them said they needed emergency medical treatment – a rate at least five times lower than that for MDMA, LSD and cocaine.






“Magic mushrooms are one of the safest drugs in the world,” said Adam Winstock, a consultant addiction psychiatrist and founder of the Global Drug Survey, pointing out that the bigger risk was people picking and eating the wrong mushrooms.

“Death from toxicity is almost unheard of with poisoning with more dangerous fungi being a much greater risk in terms of serious harms.”
Global Drug Survey 2017, with almost 120,000 participants in 50 countries, is the world’s biggest annual drug survey, with questions that cover the types of substances people take, patterns of use and whether they experienced any negative effects.
Overall, 28,000 people said they had taken magic mushrooms at some point in their lives, with 81.7% seeking a “moderate psychedelic experience” and the “enhancement of environment and social interactions”."
Turn on, tune in, and heal thyself!

They're coming out of the cupboard, as medicine.

Extracted:

"A psychedelic drug or classical hallucinogen is a substance whose primary action is to alter cognition and perception, typically as a serotonin receptor agonist,[2] causing thought and visual/auditory changes, and heightened state of consciousness.[3] Major psychedelic drugs include LSD, mescaline (peyote's active ingredient), DMT and hallucinogenic mushrooms.
Differing with other psychoactive drugs, such as stimulants and opioids, psychedelics tend to qualitatively alter ordinary conscious experience. Whereas stimulants cause energized feelings and opioids produce a relaxed euphoric state, the psychedelic experience is often compared to non-ordinary forms of consciousness such as trancemeditationyogareligious ecstasydreaming and even near-death experiences. Most psychedelic drugs fall into one of the three families of chemical compounds: tryptaminesphenethylamines, or lysergamides.
Many psychedelic drugs are illegal worldwide under the UN conventions, occasionally excepting use in a religious or research context. Despite these controls, recreational use of psychedelics is common.[4][5]"
