Michael Pollan on Psychedelics

Michael Pollan set out to find how psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) is being used to provide relief to those suffering from cancer, anxiety, alcoholism and other “intractable” mental illnesses. He claims that psilocybin is the most powerful antidepressant known to man and in the process revealed the special ingredient and chemistry behind what will become an industry-wide initiative to make psilocybin available to a wider range of patients with serious psychiatric illnesses.

Michael Pollan also appeared on a PBS to discuss his book How to Change Your Mind.

He also appeared on Joe Rogan to discuss the book.
