I wanna continue to explore the healing powers of fungi.

I've learned of another mushroom that's been used

for thousands of years to bring people enlightenment and unity.

Psilocybin and other psychedelics are now being used

in new ways.

I've connected with psychologist Dr. John Vervaeke,

who studies how psychedelics can change our minds.

How do psychedelics affect the brain?

What you can do with psychedelics is you can

expand the number of states that the brain can get into,

and then this can introduce what's called

cognitive flexibility into people's cognition.

Why are psychedelics being studied today?

There's some preliminary but growing evidence that this can

help with certain issues: people dealing with PTSD,

people dealing with depression, people dealing with vary kinds--

various kinds of addictions.

Psychedelics are thought to have been used by humans worldwide

for centuries.

Some people have now started taking low doses of psychedelics

or other drugs, a practice called microdosing.
