Can a “trip-free” [un]psychedelic still help people with depression?

They’re not only seeking out non-hallucinogenic psychedelics (after all, the hallucination bit might be crucial) but also analyzing different chemical versions of psilocybin that could “improve” on the original model.

They plan to use a sedative drug called midazolam, which has been shown in studies to produce a kind of amnesia that can temporarily prevent people from forming new memories. At certain doses, a subject could remain awake and have a “psychedelic experience”—but not remember it. “This is like going on a bender,” Raison said. “You’re dancing, you’re screaming, you’re kissing people, but you don’t remember.”
