Flashback Friday: Dr Albert Garcia-Romeu talks about therapeutic uses of psilocybin

This week we cast back to 2017. Dr Albert Garcia-Romeu talks about his research using psychedelic drugs for therapeutic purposes. He discusses the meaningful experiences that people can have when using psilocybin and how these might be used to treat depression and addictive disorders.

If you can get your head around a video from the past talking about preliminary findings that are now past findings, then this is the video for you. You might also want to check out the Back to the Future series of films (minus 2 and 3).
