Therapeutic Effects of Psilocybin

For over 15 years the Johns Hopkins Psychedelic Group has been the preeminent and most productive research team in the United States conducting human research with psychedelics. They have shown breathtaking scientific productivity, having published over 50 peer-reviewed manuscripts on psychedelics. Notable accomplishments have included: The first research since the 1970s to focus on mystical experience resulting from psychedelic administration to drug-naïve volunteers; the development of safety guidelines for human psychedelic research which have advanced the approval of psychedelic research at a growing number of universities; the first research showing that psychedelic administration increases personality openness; the first research examining a psychedelic in the treatment of tobacco/nicotine addiction; the first research demonstrating the psychedelic effects of salvinorin A under blind conditions; the development of valid psychological scales for assessing mystical experiences and challenging experiences resulting from acute psychedelic administration; the first study on the effects of psychedelic administration on volunteers initiating a meditation program; research showing that MDMA pill testing services reduce harm by decreasing planned consumption of unintended or unknown substances; the largest randomized trial showing that psilocybin produces large and sustained long-term decreases in depression and anxiety in patients with a life-threatening cancer diagnosis; and an empirical review that paves the path for psilocybin out of Schedule I status upon potential medical approval. This presentation will provide a review of this program of research, with a focus on psilocybin treatment of affective disorders.
