Study: Treating Depression With Psilocybin

Study- Treating Depression With Psilocybin_

Depression is on the rise. The World Health Organization reported more than 300 million people now living with depression. At an increase of more than 18% between 2005 and 2015. Depression is now the leading cause of disability worldwide.

Many doctors are turning to other treatments in hopes that depression would be significantly reduced.

A recent study conducted by Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris claims that Psilocybin had profound changes in the brains of depressed patients. The study was done on 19 patients. Each patient was given a single dose of psilocybin.

Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris reported significant changes in his patients brains. This magic mushroom was able to tap into the brains of patients and somehow reset the brain back to its core.

Psilocybin was shown to affect two areas of the brain. The amygdala and the default-mode network. It greatly reduced depressive emotions and their brain regions became more stable.

Treating Depression With Psilocybin
Change of Depression Levels

Patients reported feelings of liberation and had mystical experiences on mushrooms. Their symptoms of depression were greatly reduced or completely free from depression.

Another study was done on seven participants to test if their beliefs would be shifted. They took 10 mg and 25 mg of psilocybin, one week apart. They were asked simple questions of vacation preferences to difficult ones concerning political and social issues.

At the end of the study, psilocybin was proven to significantly shift responses in the participants brains. The volunteers reported a sense of connectedness to their environment and shifted toward a more libertarian mindset.  

We are headed in the right direction. There’s no doubt that Psilocybin could be the next big thing in treating depression. If you’re experimenting with Psilocybin, consider purchasing a Ehrlich Reagent Testing Kit. Being confident in your substance will ensure a quality life-time experience.

Psilocybin has surely shed some light on greatly reducing depressive symptoms. However, this was only done on a small study. We need more research done to know if this treatment will have a significant change in treating depression long term.

Could MDMA Save Your Relationship?

Could MDMA Save Your Relationship?

MDMA has mostly been used and seen as a “party drug,” but new research has pointed out that it can be a breakthrough drug in relationships.

Therapists have found that using MDMA in couples therapy has profoundly helped couples open up to each other in ways that may actually help fix problems in their relationship.

Couples have found that taking MDMA has helped strengthen their relationship and felt an immense love towards each other.

As of now, MDMA is still illegal but many therapists are stepping up to reveal its powerful abilities.

Katie Anderson, describes the use of MDMA in couples therapy and reveals that there is a sense of connectivity between the couples. She also says that these couples can learn to face their problems and move forward with clarity. She believes that MDMA can have a big impact in couples therapy.

Furthermore, she says that couples using MDMA can be free of fear. Meaning that these couples can talk about anything, from sexual fantasies, infidelity, and memories.

She had mentioned that some couples have told her that they felt as if they were one person.

Another therapist, Friederike Meckel Fischer, also believes that MDMA can have profound benefits in its use in couples therapy.

Sasha who has been coined the godfathers of MDMA, has experimented with MDMA alongside his wife. Together they have journeyed and learned more about each other and explored their consciousness.  

I believe Ann and Sasha Shulgin are living proof that MDMA can help couples love and open up to each other. Their relationship is professional yet compassionate towards each other. They work so well together and enjoy each others company.

This wonderful drug may actually help decrease divorce rates in America which have been rocketing for years.

Society displays practical and reasoning above everything else. Ignoring feelings and emotions as unimportant. This has possibly led to many couples separating because they are not able to open up to each other.

I believe that MDMA can help couples open up and feel that love they felt with each other again. I also think that it can help society, it can bring peace and love to the world at large.

Molly Tips & Advice – A First Time Roller’s Guide

So you’re new to the Molly scene? No worries! Keep reading to learn everything you need to know.

When you finally get your hands on some legitimate, pure Molly, your initial reaction will probably be to go bat shit crazy and do it all. Please refrain from doing this.

If you’ve never rolled before, go into the situation knowing that you will never feel as good as you are about to; sans extreme religious experiences (off LSD or mushrooms) or hopefully (and very unlikely..) the day you win the lottery.

The full effect of legit Molly lasts about 3-4 hours, but set aside a solid 8 hours to a whole weekend to recuperate and collect yourself after what has occurred. This will be an extensive learning experience!

Pre-Flight Checks

Before hand check your physical condition. Molly puts a considerable amount of strain on your body. Before taking it try to eat as healthy as you can weeks prior and get plenty of rest. Your internal organs will all have to work much harder.

Do not take Molly if you are prescribed anti-depressants.

Your mental health is very important, if your already borderline crazy dont push yourself over the edge. If you have a pre-conceived apprehensive outlook about taking it and not fully comfortable with being that open with yourself, and everyone around you don’t do it now and wait for the right time.

Don’t just roll for roll’s sake!

Find a Safe and Comfortable Environment

Find a suitable environment in which you feel comfortable and safe in. Music festivals or raves seem to be of the most common places to roll, and if you feel as if you’re tripping out, people are generally more understanding and consolable.

Molly is ideal to take with a significant other as it allows you to explore your relationship in depth.

Rolling at home would be ideal because you generally should already feel safe and secure there. Just dont be “That Guy” running around your neighborhood at 3am in your underwear blasting the latest Skrillex remix on your iPhone because it, “Feels SOO good!”. Your neighbors WILL call the cops.

As a general rule, if you don’t want everyone to know you’re on drugs, turn your phone off. This will help you avoid telling everyone on your contact list that you love them randomly at 3am. Always take in moderation! If you are having doubts or anxieties about rolling on Molly but are still adamant on taking it, take a small dose, and then wait an hour to take the next bit, if you absolutely have to.

Stay Hydrated

Drink water throughout your roll but avoid going overboard and drinking huge amounts as too much of anything can kill you. Stay away from alcohol and other drugs your first time, and if you are RAGING, realize that you can be overheating without knowing it. If your not rolling solo (which, as a general recommendation, you should normally roll with someone)

SIMPLY PUT, LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER.

Taking vitamin C, i.e. Emergen-C Packets helps reduce exhaustion, improves the quality of your roll and boosts your immune system. Preparations for rolling should be taken quite seriously as everything you do before hand determines how your night will turn out. Eat before hand as you will puke at the thought of ingesting anything other than Molly once you start rolling.

Make sure you will have access to comfortable places to sit or lie down. If your at a rave or music festival this will generally consist of other people (these are called cuddle puddles).

Make sure you have access to

  • water
  • fruit juices
  • most importantly orange juice.. mmmm… yummm!!!
  • Powerade or Gatorade as their electrolyte content will help reduce any come down symptoms and enable your body to RAGE harder and longer.
  • Bubble Gum

You will definitely need chewing gum or as you will commonly come across, LED Binkie Necklaces. These let you have something to chew on, provide you with a constant light show and are easily accessible.

Wear the most comfortable clothes that you have!

This means literally and mentally. A lot of times the clothes you feel most “comfortable” in are not actually comfy but, since you look good in them you are less self conscious.

You do not want to be self conscious during your roll and mostly your inhibitions will be gone so this isn’t an issue, but definitely take it into consideration.

Shoot for something that you look good in, AND is also comfortable.

Stay Organized

As a general suggestion, create a “Roll Bag”. Stuff it with personal objects that you are fond of. Yes that means you’re old teddy bear or Dragon Ball Z action figure of Super Saiyan Gohan 2 from the Cell saga.

Get a Vicks Inhaler and have someone blow that shit (lightly) in your eyes and nose.

Shit feels FUCKING EPIC. Anything with flashing LED lights is bad ass. Your vision is enhanced and you get intense tracers regularly.

Camelbaks are a solid base for a Roll Bag. They provide you with a source of fluids (whatever you decide to fill the pouch with) and are light and small enough to still be able to dance like a robot with, however big enough for all your Rollsentials™.

Other good items to throw into your roll bag include (but are not limited to…)

  • Vicks Inhaler
  • LED lights
  • Marquis Reagent Testing Kit: so you don’t buy any bunk Molly on your adventure, assuming your getting it at the location of your first roll… not recommended!
  • Deodorant: You’ll need it for them sweaty post dance pits, and if you just want to take it out and smell it, it will smell 100X better than it normally does
  • Lotion: rub it in your hands, or have someone else do it and enjoy
  • Contact Solution
  • Money: for more Molly duh
  • Wet Wipes
  • Cell Phone
  • Chap stick
  • Candy: something sweet, minty, fruity, and extremely sour; normally the obnoxious, overly flavored types are PURE BLISS when your rolling balls)
  • Wet wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Business cards: to hand out to all your new friends your going to meet if you decide to go out)
  • Pens and paper: to write down all your epiphanies, remember phone should be OFF
  • Paper Diffraction Glasses
  • Pictures of your pets
  • Bubble wand
  • Last but not least, your Molly.

Camelbaks have plenty of obscure hiding places so make sure it is hidden good!

Overall just let it happen and go with it. Do what your instincts tell you. Jump, skip act like a robot… whatever feels good!

It really brings out the inner child in everyone and enables you to filter a lot of unnecessary negativity out of your life.

Post-Flight Checks

Afterward, make sure to take some 5-HTP(as directed on the bottle) as it contains the precursor amino acid to serotonin which you just deplenished SIGNIFICANTLY.

Most importantly, dont get hooked. Its not an addictive chemical, but whats addicting is how amazingly great you feel while your under its influence.

Stick to doing it only once or twice a year and you should face no serious issues.

People have been doing this substance for decades and the pure, uncut substance used in the proper environment does not kill people.

You would have to take a shit ton of pure MDMA before you over dosed.

This again points back to how important it is to Test Your Drugs and doing research before taking it.

How MDMA Might Help Alcoholics Kick the Habit

Researchers in the United Kingdom have begun exploring the use of MDMA as a possible treatment for alcoholics according to the Guardian. These clinical trial represent the first time the drug has been studied in connection with treating alcoholism. Depending on the success of the study, it could be the first step in exploring more potential medical treatments for alcoholism.

The 20 participants in the study are all described as heavy drinkers. Researchers from Imperial College London are in charge of the study.

Similar to Ecstasy, which is also called Molly, MDMA is synthetic and produces a heightened sense of pleasure and well-being. It is a both hallucinogen and a stimulant with effects that generally take around three-quarters of an hour to kick in.

Other effects are a greater sense of energy and distortions in time and other perceptions. These effects usually last less than an hour although some effects may linger for hours afterward.

MDMA as used for these clinical trials has a more consistent dosage than Ecstasy. It is also not mixed with other drugs as Ecstasy may be but is instead pure 3,4-Methylenedioxymethamphetamine.

However, MDMA will not be used as a substitute for alcohol in the study. Instead, researchers believe that as a treatment for alcohol abuse, the advantage of MDMA is that it may make volunteers less inhibited during talk therapy. Talking Drugs reports that one of the researchers, Dr. Ben Sessa, says fear can be a barrier for some alcoholics during therapy. Sessa is a senior research fellow at ICL and a consultant child psychologist, but he also works with patients who struggle with alcoholism and other addictions.

Participants will attend eight therapy sessions. At two of the sessions, MDMA will be administered. Talking Drugs reports that these MDMA-aided therapy sessions will begin several weeks into the study.

According to Sessa, PTSD is a common factor in these addictions. In fact, he believes that alcoholism and PTSD are essentially the same condition. Therefore, the MDMA may be useful in calming patients and even giving them a sense of euphoria as they work through difficult therapy sessions. There will be follow-ups with the study participants at the three, six and nine-month mark.

Researchers have investigated MDMA as a treatment for mental health conditions besides alcoholism. The Food and Drug Administration approved its use in trials for treating PTSD in 2016. SF Gate says that studies have also explored its usefulness in treating anxiety and depression.

Neighbors upset and Dozens arresting during 5-day Middlelands festival

TODD MISSION, Texas- The Middlelands Festival is an experience for all ages full of music, fun, and festivities. These festivities got cut short for 42 individuals the 3rd of May through the 7th of May. Authorities have confirmed most of the arrests were drug-related offenses, with a few intoxication arrests on festival grounds. The drug-related offenses included individuals caught with drugs ranging from LSD, ecstasy cocaine, marijuana, and abuse of prescription drugs. Notifications were put out at the time or ticket purchase that all individuals entering the fair grounds were subject to search, and hereby consented. The event posed a zero tolerance towards illegal substances, and belligerent intoxication. No deaths were reported during this event.

The festival was held at the Texas Renaissance Festival grounds in Todd Mission, Texas. The lineup included Country music star Clay Walker. Around 90,000 individuals from all over attended the event. This festival is seen as a huge economical boost for the city. It was expected that nearly 25,000 individuals would attend the event each day. RV camping, Forrest Camping, and vehicle camping were of the approved sites for individuals to camp out at. 21+ parties, rides, and other accommodations were made during this event. Neighbor complains for those who lives near buy were at a high. One man reported that you could hear the concerts and sing every lyric from his backyard. The future holds potential towards fixing the issue of noise so everyone can all around be satisfied with the event. The event struck a positive experience among those who attended through sources such as social media.

Why You Should Test Your MDMA Before Ingesting

The question most people ask is that “Is it bad to take MDMA?” but the fact is that all drugs cause’ one damage or the other – from penicillin to methamphetamine. It’s difficult to assume “X is bad” and “Y is not bad” it’s just a proportion of less bad to more bad. When done right, MDMA is definitely on the less bad side. MDMA poses the high risk to one’s health when not done properly. It’s hard to get pure MDMA causing people to ingest other compounds such as PMMA sold as MDMA.

Two people have died, and at least three became critically ill during the first few days at the Electric Zoo music festival. Although, the causes of death have not yet been established, both diagnosed to have been involved with MDMA .

There might be a problem with the above statement. Firstly, if these people had a reasonable amount of water and were consuming pure MDMA, the possibility of them becoming ill is slim. Secondly, MDMA is commonly mistaken for MOLLY or ECSTASY. Molly is confined in a gelatin capsule rather than a pressed pill. Therefore buying Molly does not mean you are purchasing pure MDMA. Just because it’s in powder form does not mean it is pure MDMA. It is so unfortunate that when people fight to get something, they will end up settling for the substance they are less sure is pure.

Molly: the powdery form of MDMA. It is not a pure form of MDMA. MDMA: the actual substance people are after when buying ecstasy or molly. And because you are told it is MDMA does not make it pure MDMA. It still needs to be testedEcstasy: a pill that contains MDMA and other stimulants for extra high and perseverance.

There is the risk in taking MDMA resulting in serotonin receptors or neurotoxicity with overuse. It is a lot safer to take MDMA provided you have tested your shit. This is why we strongly urge people to buy an MDMA test kit before ingesting the unknown substances.

My Friend Molly At A Festival

The atmosphere at a musical festival can be both electrifying and exhilarating. The upbeat sound of music, never ending food and drinks, and the company of thousands surrounding you never disappoints. Sometimes a music festival can nudge you to want to experience some fun with molly.

When taking molly there may be some questions. Would it be okay to take molly several days straight? How do I prepare for food intake while on molly? How do I prepare for the high I may experience while taking molly? Side effects that may occur after taking molly? Anything about fluids should I be aware of before deciding to take molly? These may be some of the questions running through anyone’s mind when thinking of taking molly at an all day music festival. So let’s briefly discuss some of the answers to these questions.

It should be fine to take molly 2 days straight however, monitor the amount of times you intake because of possible neurotoxicity becoming apparent. In order to obtain a happy high or one that won’t be interfered make sure to not eat so close to when you are taking molly. Depending on the dosage and individual a high from molly may last anywhere from 2-5 hours. Make sure to quench yourself with some Gatorade and water throughout the day. You don’t want to over hydrate and make yourself have a higher chance of hypothermia. Make sure to not drink alcoholic beverages while on molly. You may experience clenching while on molly. Intake magnesium 2 hours before to possibly avoid clenching. Mood swings can occur but should subside eventually. Overall, it is important to be prepared and have a good time at a music festival. So be smart and aware before letting loose during festivities while on your good friend molly.

The Growing Popularity of Molly with Millennials

MDMA – better known as Ecstasy or Molly is very similar to amphetamines with a bit of a hallucinogen thrown in. It gives you a lot of energy; makes you feel good, and it makes you feel uninhibited. This drug can come in a pill form or in white powder in capsules. People making Molly these days sometimes will add other drugs to the mix such as PCP, amphetamines, cocaine, forms of caffeine, or even ingredients of cough medicine. This is why its imperative to test every pill or cap before “going in”. Molly users will find it takes about a half hour to fully kick in, will be at it strongest after about 1 ½-2 hours and then wear of in about 3 to 6 hours. The percentage of kids using Molly increases with older children. Juniors take Molly 2 ½ times more than eighth graders, and seniors take Molly 1 ½ times more than juniors.

People say they are attracted to Molly because of the extra energy they feel, the feeling of happiness, excitement and how it increases their senses to the extreme. It also gives them the feeling of overconfidence and the sense of being untouchable without losing too much control of themselves like most drugs do. You will notice people who range in age from teenagers to people in their twenties who are at concerts or raves, usually having way more fun than most of the people. They enjoy the music and the beats, dancing for hours on end and just overall really happy. Those are the ones high on Molly because the drug intensifies the feelings and emotions (especially empathy in general) several times over more than other people there.

The reason Molly or Ecstasy is so tied into the music scene is due to the resurgence of EDM and DJs. DJs often take the most popular songs and put them together with melodies from other songs and beats in a pattern that puts emphasis on the up and down of the music and helps insinuate the “rolling” feeling that users get from taking Molly. When people take Molly it increases their energy level and removes any sociable insecurities, helping them to stay up late, dance for long periods of time and connect with other people. This is all perfectly suited for the crowds and late-night music atmosphere. Particularly popular with millennials are the big music festivals with large numbers of musical groups that go on for days; concerts like Coachella are the perfect atmosphere for this age group.

The UK consumes more MDMA than any other nation

According to Global Drug Survey 2015, the United Kingdom consumes more MDMA than any other nation when it is in the mood. Averagely, UK users take 0.42 ‘grams per session’ followed closely by Scotland and Ireland on 0.38 and 0.37 respectively. Utilization of ecstasy pills in the UK is also alarming after Australia being first known for its tenacious border controls.

The GDS states that illiteracy overdosage makes it unreliable since MDMA is always increasing in recognition as compared to its erratic accomplice ecstasy tablets: There has been an enormous rise in consumption rates and countries over the years. MDMA crystals are in excellent supply. At times, the pills contain an extra 200mg and frequently 300mg of MDMA. This is twice and thrice what many people assume is a moderate dose.

Some countries are going extremely overboard in the amount of MDMA consumed in a session when the mean amount should be 1/4gm. The UK is currently on the top of the list with an average dose of 0.42mg/session. Vice’s Dutch editor Thijs Roes interviewed a couple of the pill producers on what on what was following the manufacture of such dose pills. He responded by saying, “What they’re doing is a pissing contest. One told me it was a competition between manufacturers and race against themselves. The other described his 330mg pill as a flagship product, as a way to get known in the scene. They felt that users would know to dose them and that the amount of MDMA would eventually stabilize around 200mg”.

Thijs Roes’s request on manufacturers is to produce of 80-100mg and placing the dosage on them. For those concerned, they should consider putting dosages than logos. He addressed consumers to keep a huge groove in the middle when taking 200mg pills so that people may examine and determine they only need to take half or even a quarter. “Every time you get a new pill always take a quarter to start with and wait at least 60-90 minutes before dosing ‘start low go slow.'” Based on the annual survey statistics, vaporizing weed is currently more prevalent than smoking it.
