Can Psychedelics Help Make Dying Easier?

It’s a lawsuit that may be more of an “educational vehicle” for the Justice Department and the DEA than a legal battle. Under Washington state’s Right to Try law, Erinn Baldeschwiler should have the right to use psilocybin therapeutically, but the DEA has denied her request. Baldeschwiler may only have two years left and doesn’t want those years to be marred by depression. This case could set a precedent for the future “if the case passes, the next doctor and patient who want access to psilocybin for end-of-life distress shouldn’t need to take it to court again.” We understand the positive impact psychedelic medicine can have and will watch this case closely as we prepare to bring more psychedelic-assisted psychotherapies to the world. This week, Novamind announced Dr. Paul Thielking as Chef Scientific Officer. Dr. Thielking will lead the development of Novamind’s psychedelic therapy protocols for conditions including cancer-related depression and end-of-life anxiety, available as treatments for clients and educational programs for clinicians.

And I can’t imagine doing that without ever having any psychedelic experience.” TheraPsil agrees. “The non-profit believes that in order for healthcare professionals to deliver this “unique therapeutic modality” it’s essential that they undergo their own psilocybin journeys and guide their peers through the psilocybin therapy process.”
