While the origin of this gross misconception remains largely unknown, fears of the potentiality of psychedelics to impair and damage mental health has been popularized in many settings. However, recent investigations circulated in the journal of psychopharmacology deflate these claims, dismissing them as completely invalid and erroneous.
Investigations implemented by Norwegian clinical psychologist Johansen and neuroscientists Teri Suzanne revealed that various assumptions and assertions about the various psychedelics are completely speculative and unsubstantiated. The statement released after extensive investigations uncovered that there is little proof connecting psychedelics to enduring mental impairment and conditions. Statements from the research went on to reveal that psychedelics are comparatively safer than many other indulgences that are deemed to be tolerably benign.
The study also asserted that various misconceptions about the potentiality of psychedelics to damage the mind were largely triggered by the collaborative effects of exaggerations from the media coupled with inadequate data and existing cultural preconceptions, instead of scientific evaluations and inquiry.
The investigation was implemented with the involvement of a staggering number of grown-up Americans which exceeded one hundred and thirty thousand who volunteered for the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. The aforementioned clearly demonstrates the extensity and comprehensiveness of the investigations. The outcome of the investigations showed that there is no connection between psychedelics and any form of psychological impairment or conditions. In fact, the investigations produces results to the contrary, as psychedelics reduced the possibilities of developing cerebral conditions or requiring any related therapy.
Johansen made it clear that a significant number of grown up Americans, estimated to be more than thirty million have used psychedelics without developing any cerebral condition.
Former investigations carried out by Johansen and Krebs failed to uncover any association that indicates psychedelics can cause any major cerebral damage or necessitate the need for therapy or out you at risk of developing any form of cerebral condition that is embraced and known to psychiatry.
Krebs made it clear that professionals have repeatedly asserted that LSD and psilocybin are innocuous when viewed against alcohol and various regulated substances.
While psychedelics are largely innocuous, it is apparent that they have psychological impacts which last for a very short period before fizzling. However, it is clear that they do not have any damaging bodily impact.
While the investigation has been able to erase every skeptic about psychedelics and cerebral health, Johansen still maintains that there could be possibilities that the investigations did not cover certain persons and factions that may have cerebral impairments and develop conditions when using psychedelics. Nonetheless, the reality of various investigations that have been conducted show that psychedelics are actually beneficial to cerebral health with tremendous gains.
A different investigation carried out earlier this year and circulated in the Journal of Psychopharmacology revealed that psychedelics promoted cerebral health while mitigating psychological pressure and the inclination towards suicide.
Various investigations continue to corroborate facts that psilocybin prevents bad emotions and encourages great mood which endures. There are investigations that show that psilocybin can even help control addictions. In addition to all of these, psychedelics is highly beneficial to sufferers of terminal illnesses as it has been useful in offsetting depression while enhancing overall mood and outlook.
Johansen maintains that various bans on the use of psychedelics in general health sector should be removed. Krebs supported this view by stating emphatically that restrictions to the use of psychedelics is a contravention of fundamental rights of individuals to spiritual pursuits, the improvement of temperament as well as recreation.
