    ... For depression/PTSD/anxiety.

    Anyone ever try LSD or other hallucinogens not necessarily for recreational use, but "medicinal" use?

    Thinking of "turning on, tuning in" this summer at a music festival with a friend. Nearly 0% experience with drugs.

    LSD hardly causes brain damage. Especially not in a microdose. Didn't your generation pioneer the use of hallucinogens for "higher consciousness" and all that shizz?

    This whole generation is wacked on pot (I don't care what anyone says, it makes you lazy, stupid, sluggish and unconcerned), molly, coke, and tons of other street drugs. LSD isn't even addictive, it just seems safer to try if you're going to experiment with anything.

    I can relate a true story of an now former member of the elite Australian Army Special Forces Unit had treatment for head injuries sustained in Afaganistan from a helicopter crash which included depression, intense migraines and blackouts. As an elite very fit and strong trained fighter who in social settings is never aggressive nor prone to getting into fights was leaving a trail of distrustion of which local police could not handle even in large numbers. Instead of criminal action he was directed by MP's to seek medical assessment for hospital supervised experimental treatment using Ketamine. The results have been astounding and even so given his vocal opposition to the use of Ketamine and all recreational drugs. I am posting this story because, like what the OP has suggested by posting this topic, the use of what are commonly known as recreational substances are now being utilised as supervised medical treatments where commonly used treatments have failed. Around 6 years ago, I was informed about the change in the medical fraternity to consider these kinds of treatment options which began by documenting the use and reaction (scientifically known as pharmacodynamics which is studying what the drug does to the body and pharmacokinetics which is what the body does to the drug). Other than marijuana & heroin almost all of the 'street drugs' were developed by government scientists for use by national military forces and that is how they then seeped into the public, as demand was created in some cases by soldiers returning from war who were not receiving adequate support, at least to the extent available today. Armed forces drug use started to be used on a large scale in WWII, Korea and most prolific in Vietnam. The USA led the way and allies also adopted it as did the Axis powers. Source of this information is from university School of psychology text books and I have had these claims verified by current and retired military personnel. It's about time we as a society took a more informed look at the potential of these drugs instead of demonising them like it is the 1980's.

    Check erowid.org for info from specialists - dont take advice from RJ for psychadelics.

    I would suggest trying a small dose in a comfortable setting. Festival are great to take psyches, but not for the first time.

    Been thinking a bit more about the OP.

    Im sure you wont get the psychological antidepressive effects taking psychedelics for the first time at a festival.

    If you want the therapeutic effects, its better to have a period of self reflection, meditate on the situation and talk things through with someone with empathy.

    This is the preparation......making your mind open to the positive and analyse the situation.

    By taking a psychadelic after the preparation you have made conscious mind aware of the subconcious tendency that lead to the behaviour you wish to alter.

    If you then take the psychedelic in a controlled environment with no stimulation from music and light show (festival setting), you will find you are open to reanalyse the situation and all sorts of dots will become connected in your mind.




    If your determined to find a psychadelic experience in this setting, LSD, ALD52, MXE, PCP or Ketamine would be a good place to start.



    Alternativly if your going to take a psychadelic or empathogen at a festival try MDMA which will give you a wave of new pound empathy and interconnectedness......or any of the 2C-x series of compounds will give an MDMAlike experience with a slight dose of the psychadelic touch without full blown emersion.



    Whatim trying to make clear is that some are party drugs and some are for spiritual growth.

    AGAIN......check erowid for neutral up to date information and please find a reputable source, most of the drugs I mentioned can be bought online at decent prices with high purity.
