Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (HPPD) Research Initiated By Ehave
Psychedelic drugs (typically LSD but sometimes psilocybin or other substances) can occasionally cause lasting visual disturbances such as seeing bright spots of light, distorted sizes and colours, or halos around objects – a disorder called Hallucinogen Persisting Perception Disorder (HPPD).
Scientists don’t know exactly why this occurs, but Ehave Inc. (EHVVF) is on a mission to get to the bottom of it. Ehave will be conducting a series of studies over 12 months to determine the cause of HPPD and hopefully find a way to prevent or cure it too. The company strongly believes that there’s a genetic predisposition to the disorder, so the study will involve genetic analysis of 2000 patients and may lead to a genetic test for HPPD susceptibility.
“Let me be clear, psychedelics are extremely safe, especially when used under medical supervision. Understanding HPPD, however, will lead to a better understanding of these molecules as a whole,” said Ehave’s CEO.
