This episode is brought to you by InsideTracker and Pendulum. Psychedelics were the subject of serious medical research from the 1940s through the 1960s, when many scientists believed some of the mind-bending compounds held tremendous therapeutic promise for treating a number of conditions, including severe mental health problems and alcohol addiction. But by the mid-1960s, research into psychedelics was shut down, a policy that would last for decades.After the blackout ended, the doctor we have on the podcast today was among the first to initiate a new series of studies on psilocybin—the psychoactive compound in “magic” mushrooms.Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Dr. Roland Griffiths, a professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurosciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Griffiths has conducted extensive research with sedative-hypnotics, caffeine, and novel mood-altering drugs. In 1999, he initiated a research program at Johns Hopkins investigating the effects of the classic hallucinogen psilocybin. The program includes studies of psilocybin-facilitated treatment of psychological distress in cancer patients and cigarette-smoking cessation as well as the compound’s effects in beginning and long-term meditators and religious leaders.In this episode, Dhru and Dr. Griffiths discuss his research on psilocybin in the treatment of psychological distress in cancer patients and cigarette-smoking cessation.

Didn't want to text you but leaving a comment instead. Enjoyed this content a lot, made a lot of sense, I could relate to it a lot and it helps me look at how I'm doing things, and how I can move myself forward. Being hard on ourselves every day is one area that resonated most, but I can use/work with the other tips also. Thanks!

I recently asked my Dr to check my hormone levels and, sure enough, everything came back "normal." how does this explain the crazy fatigue I've been experiencing the past year? how do we find drs that specialize in holistic medicine and would health insurance even cover something like that? I have no idea to whom I'm asking these questions, lol, just thinking out loud I suppose.
