ETHNOPHARMACOLOGIC SEARCH FOR PSYCHOACTIVE DRUGS II: 50 Years of Research (1967 – 2017)
A conference on the use of Psychoactive Plants in Indigenous Societies.
Spend three days with a selected group of 18 international specialists to assess the current and possible futures in ethnopsychopharmacology research.
50 years ago, a landmark symposium entitled Ethnopharmacologic Search for Psychoactive Drugs was held in San Francisco, California. It was a landmark event and the list of attendees read like a veritable ‘who’s who’ of consciousness research. Since then, in spite of the prohibitions, much good research has been accomplished, particularly in the last decade, with hundreds of approved clinical trials around the world using psychedelics for the treatment of depression, addiction, PTSD and numerous other conditions showing very positive therapeutic effects.
Tyringham Initiative and Symbio Life Sciences, under the direction of Dennis McKenna, have organized a follow-up 50th anniversary conference. Once again, an international, interdisciplinary group of top specialists – from ethnobotanists to neuroscientists – will gather in one place and share their findings on a topic that is gaining widespread relevance.
