Hopkins recruiting for study on psilocybin therapy for anorexia

Did you know that, of all the psychological disorders, anorexia is the one that’s most often fatal? It’s also the next frontier in psychedelic research. From the website of the Johns Hopkins Center for Psychedelic and Consciousness Research:

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University are seeking individuals ages 18 – 65 with anorexia nervosa to participate in a research study looking at the effects of psilocybin, a naturally occurring psychoactive substance found in certain species of mushrooms. The study will investigate psychological effects of psilocybin, including whether or not it can help with anorexia.

    I knew anorexia was serious but had no idea it was the disorder most often fatal. Psychedelics may turn out to be a lifesaver in this regard. Exciting!
