Show Notes:

Dr. Benjamin Malcolm discusses psychedelic alkaloids that have potential to treat addictions.

When conducting human subjects research, it’s a good idea to at least    run it past an IRB.

There are risks involved in taking in ibogaine that can be used to treat addiction. For people age 18-24, opiates are a major cause of death. Holistic House teaches addicts heath habits for treatment. Ibogaine is still an unregulated area. 2CB haven’t had that many research studies. Surveys tend to have a bit of bias, often given to supportive subjects to begin with. Mescaline, San Pedro, and peyote appears to lack research. There is going to be a need to potentially or switch between traditional therapeutic   modalities and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapies.
