The interview focuses on how current clinical research into the therapeutic potential of psychedelics is conducted, the diminishing stigma surrounding psychedelics, and how MDMA-assisted psychotherapy can help people overcome PTSD. “Almost from the day of its discovery, psychiatrists have been fascinated by the properties of LSD and similar drugs, often called psychedelics,” explains Gupta.
