    @Timely, This is good news, but and its a BIG but not enough research has been done. This report would needed to be much longer and much bigger, indeed if you read the end part of the report they covered there asses.
    I just hope people who read this report dont start self medicating

    "Their study, though small, is another important step in finding legitimate medical uses for psilocybin — and, more broadly, helping rebrand hallucinogens as a class of compounds as having therapeutic potential. They admit in the paper, however, that because their study involved so few people, their results shouldn’t be seen as conclusive. There’s plenty we still don’t know about how psilocybin helps alleviate the symptoms of depression — and what the potential downsides are — so they warn people against trying to self medicate."

    Yes they are not advocating random mushroom fests. They are pointing out a possible correlation.

    I hope we see some follow up, however being a naturally occuring substance, patents can not be applied.

    This is where synthetic drugs come into play and the whole thing blows up.
