LSD And Other Psychedelic Drugs Could Actually Improve Your Mental Health, Study Says


In Native American ceremonies, the hallucinogenic substance peyote has been used sacramentally, and in the early 1960s, LSD (lysergic acid diethylamide, also known as 'acid') was administered by healthcare professionals to many patients, including the actor Cary Grant, for therapeutic purposes. Yet, hallucinogenic substances have also garnered a negative reputation among those who fear or dislike 'street' use of these drugs.

After analyzing data from a U.S. national health survey, Teri Krebs and Pål-Ørjan Johansen, researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) Department of Neuroscience, have determined that use of LSD, magic mushrooms, or peyote does not increase a person's risk of developing mental health problems.
