We are Dr. Josh Woolley, and Ryan Moss - Experts in psychedelic research and drug development. To mark World Mental Health Day on Oct 10th, we want to share our knowledge around magic mushrooms, and other psychedelic plant/fungi for the treatment ...
Hey Reddit, we are Dr. Joshua Woolley and Ryan Moss. Dr. Woolley is Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California San Francisco’s Weill Institute for Neurosciences and the Director of UCSF’s Translational Psychedelic Research Program – an innovative psychedelic research facility. We are also joined by a member of Josh's Team, Dr. Jake Aday, a post-doctoral fellow focused on psychedelic research. Ryan is the head of Research & Development at Filament Health, a natural psychedelic drug discovery company, and an expert in the field of natural product chemistry. We believe World Mental Health Day is a unique opportunity for us to discuss our research into how natural psychedelics may be the answer to treating many of the world’s mental health conditions, as well as other insights into the exciting world of psychedelics.
EDIT: Thank you all for your questions! We are done for the day. I will continue to monitor the thread and answer any questions I can and I will continue to pass on additional questions throughout the day to Dr. Woolley and his team!
For those interested, here is an AMA that I did back in June more focused on mushroom growing and extraction!
