Research suggests that the psychedelic experience may hold the potential for making some patients healthier and some people happier. Since the 1950s, researchers have been studying the risks and benefits of psychedelics and non-pharmacological tools to alter consciousness, while with the turn of the 21st century psychedelic research experienced a boom. At this stage, a reality of evidence-based psychedelic-assisted therapies gradually moves into view. 

To keep track of global reporting, high-quality research publications, as well film and podcasts in psychedelic research topics, the resources below will serve as a regularly updated archive. Enjoy browsing our selection and see what suits your interest!
