Less than two years ago, the amazing scientists at the Johns Hopkins Psychedelic Research Unit began studying the effects of Psilocybin, one of the main psychoactive substances found in magic mushrooms.
The preliminary results are out:
- 83% of their participants showed a clinically significant reduction in depression symptoms
- 53% met criteria for remission.
