1. Oregon and Colorado legalized psilocybin-assisted therapy
Oregon and Colorado haven’t legalized psilocybin-assisted therapy specifically. What has been approved is adult use in specific facilities. While no therapy component is included in state regulations, adults in Oregon and Colorado who participate in the adult use of lab-tested psilocybin in a controlled setting are encouraged to take advantage of the therapeutic opportunities that are available to them. Working with a trained psychedelic-assisted therapist to prepare for your psilocybin facilitated session and then again after to unpack the experience can add tremendous value to your psychedelic journey and to your overall mental well-being.
2. Psychedelic-assisted therapy is the same for all psychedelics
Not true at all! Psychedelic-assisted therapy engagement can vary depending on the specific psychedelic substance used. Different psychedelics have unique effects on the brain and can produce varying levels of intensity, duration, and subjective experiences.
Each therapeutic approach and setting can also vary based on the substance and an individual’s needs. Some psychedelics are more effective for treating certain mental health conditions than others, and the dosage and duration of the therapy also vary.
