Distributed Dialogues EP #15 - Bitcoin, Psychedelics and the Fight Against PTSD
"I think a lot of the people that have been interested in moving away from the current systems and to developing new, innovative systems are interested in psychedelics and in crypto."
- Rick Doblin
On this episode of Distributed Dialogues Dave, Grahm and Rick explore a non-traditional approach to treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder: psychedelic drugs. Traditional methods of treating PTSD have left much to be desired, not only by those who suffer from it, but from their loved ones as well. This has led to a growing number of people exploring experimental treatments, including many who travel great distances for ayahuasca ceremonies. While these techniques still have a long way to go to reach a mainstream audience, the numbers on their effectiveness don't lie. One such research center is The Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS): a program that has received millions of dollars in funding from Bitcoin.
