Psychedelic Science: A Billion-Dollar Industry, but at What Cost?

New Research on the Psychedelic Frontier and its Impact on Indigenous Peoples

MAY 19, 2022

Research in psychedelics is a new and growing industry worth billions, but it comes at a cost to those who have been using psychedelics for centuries.

The psychedelic movement is here, and according to all metrics, here to stay. This movement is carved into three main paths: “therapeutic, religious, and recreational — each of which involves very different players, areas of law, and, in some instances, competing interests” (Harvard Law).

Psilocybin is the psychoactive compound found in ‘Magic Mushrooms.’ When ingested, Psilocybin stimulates serotonin 2A receptors in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, affecting mood, cognition and perception.

While there is no definitive way to answer the question of what Psilocybin is like, we can unpack what can occur during a Psilocybin experience. Psilocybin can take you on a deep dive into your subconscious. It provides a unique opportunity to become aware – and potentially address – of what has been repressed. With Psilocybin, it is possible to face our ‘shadow’. The shadow, in this instance, represents all the unconscious parts of yourself that your ego doesn’t want to admit to.
