Drugs and cannabis writing

Psychedelics and cannabis writing

Mind bending drugs that do you a lot of good? Can an E a day keep the nuthouse at bay? A bustee a day can certainly keep the doctor at bay!

In 2011 a psychiatrist from New Zealand asked me, ‘What if LSD was the opium of psychiatry?’ He could see no firm link between any psychedelics and schizophrenia. This is why I started out in psychedelics writing.

My use of the term ‘psychedelics writing’ is rather loose as I also include any drug with medicinal value that has been pilloried in the press. Let’s first start with Kratom.

The Trip ReportThe Trip Report

I have been contributing content writing to the sensible drug policy blog, The Trip Report. What follows are three important pieces he wrote for this site:

What are the hurdles to getting MDMA assisted psychotherapy approved for use by therapists? Have a read of this article to get my appreciation of the situation at the time.

Why is GW Pharmaceuticals so interested in cannabidiol (CBD)? This non-psychoactive terpene from marijuana has a lot of potential in medicine due to the way it interacts with the central nervous system. Have a look at my article on the subject above.

Finally, a mother of a teenager who died after taking Ecstasy spoke to me about why she wants the drug legalised. In her eyes she doesn’t want other children dying from not knowing what is in those pills and to take control of recreational drugs off criminals, putting them in the hands of regulated manufacturers.

Mental Health Today I looked at how generic psychiatric medication performs differently to the patent drugs that they are supposed to replace once the originals’ patents have expired. I has had this very issue, and have to take the patent medication due to the generics having unwanted effects when I take them. Download this PDF MHT Generic Drugs Jan14002
