The Healing Power of Connection Supplements, Cannabis, LSD, etc

The world is changing quite rapidly. Five years ago there was a general distrust of cannabis, and now more and more its magical healing properties are being revealed by science. We know it is a miracle drug when it comes to helping people with epilepsy. It is also a remarkably effective pain treatment, helping manage pain by both interfering with pain signals (like opioids) and reducing inflammation! Opioids don't reduce inflammation, they just mess up the brain.

On April 29, a CNN documentary on the remarkable ways cannabis can help cure opioid addictions aired on CNN. The full documentary is linked below.  When you watch the documentary, pay particular attention to the information on how CBDs (one of the active compounds in cannabis) helps regenerate white matter in the brain(!), white matter that is destroyed by chronic opioid use!. The ability of cannabis to bring back brain white matter is nothing short of miraculous, and probably provides hope for treatment of Alzheimers and dementia.

Starting in the next few days Gina and I will be exploring the power of cannabis as a healing tool in psychotherapy. In the interim, those interested can familiarize themselves with the rapidly emerging research on this amazing natural substance by watching the four-part documentary, linked below.

"Psychedelic drugs may have mind-altering powers in the physical sense, too. A new study has found psychedelics, specifically DOI, DMT, and LSD, can change brain cells in rats and flies, making neurons more likely to branch out and connect with one another. The work supports the theory that psychedelics could help to fight depression, anxiety, addiction, and post-traumatic stress disorder."

My awesome daughter Vayda just posted this in the announcements section

The basic gist of the study is that cannabis isn't associated with IQ reductions when other factors are taken into. In particular, the study points the finger at cigarette usage (but not tobacco). It is cigarette usage, which is often associated with adolescent cannabis use, and not cannabis, that is the key causal pathway. People who smoke cigarettes often smoke cannabis, and vica versa.

Interestingly, the article does not blame tobacco, but rather "cigarette use."

" This suggests that it may be cigarette use, rather than tobacco consumption per se, that predicts poorer educational outcomes, potentially lending support to a non-pharmacological mechanism to explain links between cigarette use and poorer outcomes."

By "non-pharmacological mechanisms" they are basically suggesting that there is something that comes before cigarette and lower IQ, and that causes them both. The key here is Toxic Socialization, specifically the damage caused by toxic socialization. Toxic socialization causes illness, addiction (like smoking), toxic adaptations like Borderline Personality Adaptation, lower IQ, lower CQ, disjuncture, etc. (see the SpiritWiki entry on Toxic Socialization for a complete list). The "bad people," the bad apples, the bad teenagers, the one's more likely to smoke, drink, and smoke drugs, are the teenagers who have been damaged by toxic socialization. Their reduced academic functioning, mental and emotional difficulties, etc., have NOTHING to do with cannabis or tobacco directly, but with the traumatic experiences that accompany the Toxic Socialization, we all endure.
