Kuypers Drug Science, Policy and Law, 2020, Volume 6, 1–11. Doi : 10.1177/2050324519900068   Abstract Background : It has been suggested that the outcome of the psychedelic experience is dependent on set and setting.

La globalisation de cette boisson a vu naître de nouveaux usages, tout d’abord dans les religions de l’ayahuasca au Brésil et dans les centres néo-psychothérapiques en Amérique du [...]

The Religious Significance of Entheogenic Drugs, Hugh Asher,

The Religious Significance of Entheogenic Drugs Hugh Asher More Info: This is my unpublished Master's Dissertation.   Abstract This paper examines the use of psychoactive substances such as Psilocybin, Mescaline, and LSD as adjuncts to mystical, religious or spiritual experiences. There is an analysis of the psychological changes and the changes in perception that these substances cause and how these can be interpreted as contributing to religious or spiritual enlightenment. There is also a discussion on the nature of what could be considered a religious experience. An overview of the use of such ‘entheogenic’ drugs from an historical perspective follows, looking specifically at the use of [...]

Translational evidence for ayahuasca as an antidepressant : what’s next ?

Translational evidence for ayahuasca as an antidepressant : what’s next ? Rafael Guimaraes dos SANTOS, José Carlos BOUSO British Journal of Psychiatry, 2019, 41, (4), 275-276. Doi : 10.1590/1516-4446-2019-4104   Depression is among the most important contributors to global disability and suicidal deaths. Available antidepressants are usually selective inhibitors of serotonin and norepinephrine uptake, which need weeks of daily intake before therapeutic effects appear, have limited efficacy for many patients, and induce significant adverse reactions after prolonged use. Therefore, recent research has focused on finding new antidepressant compounds that are fast-acting, more effective, and less toxic. The article recently published by da Silva et al. in the [...]
