Biohackers should be skeptical of Psychedelics

Thanks to Joe Rogan and different pop culture personalities psychedelics have become very popular. You’ve probably heard about them and are curious if a psychedelic trip or ceremony could be a shortcut to mental health or transformative personal development.

Watch: Psychedelics are Problematic [2] Bad Trips and what science really says about Microdosing

Jonathan, I’m not the type of person that loses their shit. I have a strong mind. I wouldn’t let my emotions run my life. If I did a psychedelic trip I would prepare properly, I wouldn’t do all these idiotic things that people do that seem to cause bad trips.

Psychedelics don’t belong in the same risk-reward category as Nootropics, Mindfulness or diet hacking.

Ok Jonathan, I can see why doing jarring psychedelics trips is risky but what about microdosing? That’s probably not a bad idea, right?

But Jonathan, there’s so many researchers and scientists that say that psychedelics are good! They help people overcome PTSD and drug addiction. There’s so much encouraging research on psychdelics…
