Analysis Suggests No Link Between Psychedelics and the Onset of Mental Health Conditions

Good news – there’s no correlation between psychedelics and the onset of mental health issues.

An analysis conducted through a Norwegian university revealed that psychedelic drug use does not increase the risk of developing mental health disorders. In fact, psilocybin users showed lower rates of serious psychological distress, panic attacks, and psychotic symptoms than non-users. The researchers analyzed survey data from 130,000 participants (22,000 of which had used psychedelics) who were screened for various psychiatric disorders and psychosis.

** Professionals still advise those with a family history of schizophrenia or psychosis to avoid psychedelics.
