This episode goes deep on the science of psychedelic-assisted therapy and research in light of some really astounding Phase III clinical trials that have recently come out about some of these substances. I am here with Amy Emerson, the CEO of the MAPS Public Benefit Corporation of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies.

Just as an example of what’s possible, in one recent study two-thirds of participants were able to go from severe PTSD to no longer even meeting the criteria for PTSD diagnosis. I can relate to the need for this through my own experience of dealing with past trauma and think this has absolute game-changing potential for a lot of people who are going through really difficult things.
