Spiritual effects of hallucinogens persist, researchers report

“In a follow-up to research showing that psilocybin, a substance contained in ‘sacred mushrooms,’ produces substantial spiritual effects, a Johns Hopkins team reports that those beneficial effects appear to last more than a year.

Writing in the Journal of Psychopharmacology, the Johns Hopkins researchers note that most of the 36 volunteer subjects given psilocybin, under controlled conditions in a Hopkins study published in 2006, continued to say 14 months later that the experience increased their sense of well-being or life satisfaction.” (PhysOrg)
