  1. Strongly recommend mushrooms if you’re trying to have a psychotic breakdown and become permanently schizophrenic for the rest of your life, unable to perform normal adult tasks. Worked for me!

  2. As someone who’s enjoyed mushrooms many times before, this is literally the only reason I take them. When I feel my depression getting bad I take a trip and I’m good for a few months. I don’t understand why we’re arguing things that have been known for centuries

  3. Terrible title, small sample size, no control groups, no longitudinal analysis, limited applicability.

    “In the study, 20 healthy participants (an even ratio of sex), were tested on their reaction to music before and after given psilocybin. 14 of these participants were also tested after being given ketanserin, an anti-hypertension drug commonly used as a comparison in psychedelic experiments. At the peak of the drugs’ effects, participants listened to a short music program and rated their emotional response.

    Their response to the music, Elgar’s Enigma Variations no 8 and 9, and Mozart’s Laudate Dominum, was rated according to the Geneva Emotional Music Scale.”

  4. I totally agree with, support, and promote the benefits of magic mushrooms for treating people on a different level than conventional drugs. Buuuut, a sample size of 20 for this “new research”? I gotta say that that’s not a very big group. Let’s hope this keeps getting the funding it needs and deserves.

  5. It seems to have been classical music, or at least that is the only reference provided in the article

    > “Interestingly, some of the music we used, Elgar famous ‘Nimrod’ variation (the 9th variation) describes his close friend Augustus Jaeger. Jaeger encouraged Elgar to write the variations as a way out of depression, so we’re pleased to see it used again to help understand more about mental health,” said Stenbæk

  6. Took mushrooms after my divorce. Listened to records and cried the biggest most sincere, healing cry of my life. The peace I felt in regards to my ex and our situation was immeasurable. We’re still friends to this day thanks to the clarity my trip on mushrooms gave me.

  7. Wait so the hippies were right? But they were so wrong on:
    1) global warming and pollution
    2) racial equality
    3) gender equality
    4) the futility of the Vietnam war
    5) the future of sexual norms
    6) science over religion
    7) marijuana legalization
    Probably more I can’t think of

  8. How much more research has to come out before the UK government rethinks its backwards drug/alcohol laws?

    The cynic in me says we need less research on the health benefits and more on how it can be profitable. Ram it down their throats, because that’s pretty much the only motivation these bastards have.

  9. I think it’s hilarious that we need science and medical professionals to tell us what stoners and hippies have been saying for years. Like, if you’ve tried it with someone experienced, you already know it.

  10. Recently I made a trip to DC where mushrooms are decriminalized. I ate a bunch before going to see the preeminent Pink Floyd tribute band perform at a swanky orchestral theater with a balcony and boxes on the side for VIPs like the president to sit. I include this contextual info to stress that the setting was not like a rowdy standing room only concert, it was very peaceful and relaxed. It was the most incredible night of my life. I haven’t felt depressed in over a month. It really works.
