Psychedelic science in post-COVID-19 psychiatry J. R. Kelly, M. T. Crockett, L. Alexander, M. Haran, A. Baker, L. Burke, C. Brennan and V. O’Keane Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine, 2020, 1-6. doi:10.1017/ipm.2020.94   The medium- to long-term consequences of COVID-19 are not yet known, though an increase in mental health problems are pre- dicted. Multidisciplinary strategies across socio-economic and psychological levels may be needed to mitigate the mental health burden of COVID-19.

Does Psychedelic Therapy Have a Transdiagnostic Action and Prophylactic Potential ?, Rita Kocárová, Jirí Horácek and Robin Carhart-Harris, 2021

Does Psychedelic Therapy Have a Transdiagnostic Action and Prophylactic Potential ? Rita Kocárová, Jirí Horácek and Robin Carhart-Harris Frontiers in Psychiatry, July 2021, Volume 12, Article 661233, 1-18. doi : 10.3389/fpsyt.2021.661233   Addressing global mental health is a major 21st-century challenge. Current treatments have recognized limitations; in this context, new ones that are prophylactic and effective across diagnostic boundaries would represent a major advance. The view that there exists a core of transdiagnostic overlap between psychiatric disorders has re-emerged in recent years, and evidence that psychedelic therapy holds promise for a range of psychiatric disorders supports the position that it may be transdiagnostically effective. Here, [...]

Cannabidiol as a Therapeutic Alternative for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder : From Bench Research to Confirmation in Human Trials Rafael M. Bitencourt and Reinaldo N. Takahashi Frontiers in Neuroscience, 2018, 12, 502, 1-10. Doi : 10.3389/fnins.2018.00502   Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is characterized by poor adaptation to a traumatic experience. This disorder affects approximately 10% of people at some point in life. Current pharmacological therapies for PTSD have been shown to be inefficient and produce considerable side effects. Since the discovery of the involvement of the endocannabinoid (eCB) system in emotional memory processing, pharmacological manipulation of eCB signaling has become a therapeutic possibility for the treatment of [...]

Doi : 10.14740/jocmr4159   Abstract Cannabidiol (CBD) is a substance chemically derived from Cannabis sativa and discussed to be non-psychoactive.

Pour ses vertus thérapeutiques, mais aussi festives et sacrées. Avec lui, nous découvrons aussi que la prohibition du cannabis est née aux USA, sur des préjugés racistes.   Celui que nous allons rencontrer aujourd’hui, dans les premières collines, au sud du Massif Central, est un des psychiatres français les plus connus et les plus engagés dans la recherche [...]

Yet, even after psychotherapy, PTSD often remains a chronic illness, with high rates of psychiatric and medical comorbidity. Meanwhile, the search for and development of drugs with new mechanisms of action has stalled. Therefore, there is an urgent need to explore not [...]
