DMT and the Mainstreaming of Psychedelics | Rick Strassman MD ~ ATTMind 65

On today’s episode, we feature the author of DMT: The Spirit Molecule, Rick Strassman MD.

Rick is a medical doctor specialised in psychiatry with a fellowship in clinical psychopharmacology research. His foundational work with DMT in the 90s was the first human-trial psychedelic research to be done in the two decades following the Controlled Substances Act of 1971. It was the clinical observations and participant reports during those trails that formed his book mentioned above, and the hit documentary by the same name.

We have him on the show to touch on how he feels about the impact his work with DMT has had on psychedelic research and the psychedelic subculture. We also talk god, prophecy, and even politics.
