No Trippin’ Psychedelics for Mental Health? – Scientists Develop Non-Hallucinogenic Psychedelics for Patients

Chemistry researchers from UNC-Chapel Hill, Yale, UC San Francisco, Stanford, and Duke have just culminated a seven-year experiment where they were able to come up with a non-psychedelic substance that engage the 5-HT2A, the same brain structures that psilocybin and ketamine do. They tested the substance on mice, and their findings revealed that they didn’t encounter psychedelic effects.
