PUBLISHER: REALITY SANDWICH SINGLES
PUBLICATION DATE: JANUARY 25, 2013
PRINT LENGTH: 45 PAGES
Long demonized, ridiculed, or ignored by the mainstream media, psychedelic drugs are finally seeing the light of day, and new scientific research is confirming the results of older studies, which suggest that these unusual substances have a myriad of useful medical applications. After eighteen years of no clinical studies with psychedelic drugs, there is now an explosion of research occurring all over the world on drugs such as LSD, psilocybin, DMT, MDMA, ibogaine and ketamine.
How might psychedelics be used as healing agents? Psychedelic Drug Research offers a definitive summary of the scientific investigations that have taken place since starting anew in 1990.
David Jay Brown's work has been featured in numerous magazines, including Wired, Discover, and Scientific American (where this book originated as an article), and he is periodically the Guest Editor of the MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) Bulletin. He writes a popular column for SantaCruzPatch.com, "Catch the Buzz," about cannabis and psychedelic culture in Northern California.
Praise for Psychedelic Drug Research:
"David Jay Brown's summary of research findings on psychedelics and their extraordinary range of therapeutic applications should prove extremely useful in this newly resurgent field of interest – a field touching on vast and poorly understood human potentials." – Ralph Metzner, Ph.D.
"David Jay Brown’s comprehensive new eBook is a valuable resource that should be read widely by audiences interested in scientific research with psychedelics since the 1990s, when science triumphed over drug war politics and the FDA lifted the ban on psychedelic research…. [A] timely and important book." – Rick Doblin, Founder of MAPS
"Most readers of Psychedelic Drug Research will be surprised at the impressive amount of data collected on LSD and similar substances despite governmental crackdowns, social prejudice, distortions in the media, and the notoriety attached to what could have been a new era of healing, therapy, and unleashing of human potential. Nonetheless, the sections on post-1990 investigations are nicely summarized by David Jay Brown and make for enlightening and often provocative reading." – Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.
