The “Endless Trip” among the NPS Users : Psychopathology and Psychopharmacology in the Hallucinogen-Persisting Perception Disorder. A Systematic Review Laura Orsolini, Gabriele Duccio Papanti, Domenico De Berardis, Amira Guirguis, John Martin Corkery and Fabrizio Schifano Frontiers in Psychiatry, 2017, Vol. 8, article 240 doi: 10.3389/fpsyt.2017.00240   Hallucinogen-persisting perception disorder (HPPD) is a syndrome characterized by prolonged or reoccurring perceptual symptoms, reminiscent of acute hallucinogen effects. HPPD was associated with a broader range of LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide)-like substances, cannabis, methylenedioxy-methamphetamine (MDMA), psilocybin, mescaline, and psychostimulants. The recent emergence of novel psychoactive substances (NPS) posed a critical concern regarding the new onset of psychiatric symptoms/syndromes, including cases [...]

Fifteen healthy volunteers received intravenous infusions of psilocybin and placebo in 2 task-free resting-state scans. Primary analyses focused on changes in FC between the default-mode- (DMN) and task-positive network (TPN). Spontaneous activity in the DMN is orthogonal [...]

Psychedelic microdosing benefits and challenges : an empirical codebook Thomas Anderson, Rotem Petranker, Adam Christopher, Daniel Rosenbaum, Cory Weissman, Le-Anh Dinh-Williams, Katrina Hui, Emma Hapke Harm Reduction Journal, 2019. Doi : 10.1186/s12954-019-0308-4   Abstract Background : Microdosing psychedelics is the practice of consuming very low, sub-hallucinogenic doses of a psychedelic substance, such as lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) or psilocybin-containing mushrooms. According to media reports, microdosing has grown in popularity, yet the scientific literature contains minimal research on this practice. There has been limited reporting on adverse events associated with microdosing, and the experiences of microdosers in community samples have not been categorized. Methods : In the present study, [...]

Hallucinogens and redemption, Marlene Dobkin de Rios, Charles S. Grob & John R. Baker, 2002

Hallucinogens and redemption Marlene Dobkin de Rios, Charles S Grob, John R Baker Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, 2002, 34, 3, 239-248.   Abstract : This article examines drug substitution with regard to hallucinogens (ayahuasca, ibogaine, peyote and LSD) set within the concept of redemption. The model examines both religious and secular approaches to the contemporary use of hallucinogens in drug substitution, both by scientists and in religious setting worlwide. The redemptive model posits that the proper use of one psychoactive substance within a spiritual or clinical context helpsto free an individual from the adverse effects of their addiction to another substance and thus restores them [...]

Freudian, Jungian, Grofian — Steps Toward the Psychedelic Humanities, Thomas B. Roberts, 2017

Freudian, Jungian, Grofian — Steps Toward the Psychedelic Humanities Thomas B. Roberts, Ph.D. The Journal of Transpersonal Psychology, 2017, Vol. 49, No. 2, 19 p. Copyright 2017, Transpersonal Institute   ABSTRACT: Stanislav Grof’s map of the mind offers transpersonalists — and further, humanists and all professions working with the human phenomenon — a new kind of intellectual effort. Just as Freudian and Jungian psychologies enriched 20th Century intellectual life, Grofian is enriching the 21st. Grof’s psychedelic-derived theory promotes cultural interpretation, psychocriticism, curricular enrichment, and new methods of humanistic research. The theory’s four-level map of the human mind has received moderate attention primarily by confirming other [...]

The Consciousness Research of Stanislav Grof : A Cosmic Portal Beyond Individuality, Richard Yensen & Donna Dryer, 1998

The Consciousness Research of Stanislav Grof : A Cosmic Portal Beyond Individuality Richard Yensen & Donna Dryer 1998 I. Introduction Stanislav Grof began his research in Prague, Czechoslovakia, as a psychiatric resident, in the late 1950’s. His initial observations seemed to confirm and offer a laboratory proof for many of the basic tenets of Freudian psychoanalytic thought. At that time his conclusion was politically unsettling because psychoanalysis was repressed in the iron curtain countries. Forty years later the outcome of Grof’s continued research is a theoretical framework for understanding human consciousness. His theory has evolved into a wide-ranging description of the relationship between the individual [...]
