EP 46: Therapeutic Potential of Psychedelic Substances With Dr. Olga Chernoloz

by



When you hear psychedelic mushrooms you probably think of someone just trying to get a good high. Would you believe they can safely aid in the treatment of mental health conditions? Dr. Olga Chernoloz is a trained neuropharmacologist that specializes in psychoactive compounds. She started her doctor career off working in a mental health hospital with treatment-resistant depressed individuals. She was working with cannabis when she kept seeing research models showing incredible data on psychedelic substance use for mental health treatment. Furthermore, she really wanted to help these people and knew this was something she needed to be a part of.

As the Chief Scientific Officer at the Wake Network, Dr. Chernoloz aims to uncover the therapeutic potential of psychedelic substances. They have a facility in Jamaica where they grow the mushrooms and run clinical trials. Dr. Chernoloz is very excited about a micro-dosing trial they have coming up. In micro-dosing, the patient takes just 2-10% of the typical dose. Those suffering from anxiety, depression, or trauma report improvement in mood and a deeper connection to themselves, others, and nature, all without the impairment effects.

What You’ll Learn:

The two main misconceptions around psychedelics
What micro-dosing is
The difference between natural and synthetic psychedelics
How psychedelics can bring a better quality of life to those suffering from anxiety, depression, and trauma.
And much more!
