…psychedelics… future of pain relief?

In fact, it increasingly seems that pain – one of the most universal experiences in the human condition – is now the next frontier for psychedelics after mental health.

“As a non-addictive alternative to opioids, psychedelics represent a revolutionary and much-needed new approach to the treatment of pain,” according to the Psychedelics and Health Research Initiative at UC San Diego. The CDC estimates that more than 100 million people in the United States experience chronic pain. A quarter of people seeking primary health care suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is a leading cause of disability… dozens of emerging trials go some way towards validating widespread anecdotal reports that psychedelics can play this role. “There’s a case for cautious optimism and continuing to push the cause,” says James Close, a doctoral student at the Centre for Psychedelic Research at Imperial College London and pain management therapist at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.
