It's True: Drugs May Be Good For You
While party drugs are not legal, there are a number of scientists who are researching their potential health-promoting effects throughout the world. There are several party drugs that researchers are investigating for their health benefits. Of course, you will not take these exactly like those using them for recreational purposes. It is critical to get the right dose or else there might not be any health benefits. Learning more about the benefits may give people with a number of health conditions some hope that they can get better.
Magic mushrooms contain the substance psilocybin and it is what produces the hallucinogenic effects when people ingest the mushrooms. Even in smaller quantities, people can experience hallucinations. This drug has the ability to promote better memory and it can also reduce the effects of depression. It has an effect on the part of the brain that tends to be hyperactive in people with depression. By slowing down these areas of the brain, a person experiences fewer depressive symptoms.
Also referred to as MDMA, this drug is a type of synthetic compound with the ability to cause feelings of emotional warmth, hallucinations and enhanced energy. The same properties responsible for these effects also make MDMA potentially beneficial in treating PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder. Another body of research is looking at the ability of MDMA to fight against cancer due to having anti-cancer properties. The research is mostly focusing on how this drug might be beneficial for lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma.
Decades ago, cocaine was just as common as Tylenol and Motrin are today, but it is now a schedule one substance that is illegal in most parts of the world. While a largely addictive substance, when used in therapeutic amounts, this drug might help with a number of health issues due to having 14 bioactive alkaloids. One of the biggest areas of research is looking at how this drug might help to regulate bowel and digestive function. It might also be helpful for treating minor cuts because it has potent blood vessel narrowing properties.
Also called acid, this drug is primarily used to enhance spirituality and to allow users to have a hallucinogenic experience. However, research shows that it might actually be helpful in treating an addiction to alcohol. Research in Norway is looking at how LSD might help to prevent recovering alcoholics from relapsing as they go through their treatment program. It works differently from the psychiatric drugs that are currently available and it can help patients to better understand their alcohol addiction and its potentially dangerous effects.
When people realize the potential effects, they have a greater understanding of why they should not drink. This helps to reduce their risk of relapse.
This is a drug most often used in veterinary medicine throughout the United States. While it works as a tranquilizer in animals, recreational users use it to get more in touch with their thoughts and feelings. Research shows that this drug might be able to treat chronic depression by stimulating the growth of new brain synapses. This helps to ensure that the brain is able to send the proper messages. Those who have depression that is largely resistant to conventional treatments might benefit from depression treatment with ketamine.
Marijuana is heralded as a beneficial drug for a number of health conditions. In the United States, a number of states have legalized the drug for multiple medical purposes. Marijuana is often linked to reducing pain, reducing glaucoma symptoms by helping to alleviate pressure in the eyes, reducing nausea, helping with cancer and cancer treatment-related symptoms and aiding those who are experiencing symptoms related to AIDS wasting. It might also help to reduce a number of symptoms that occur with Crohn’s disease. Those using marijuana for medical reasons typically vaporize or ingest it, reducing problems with inhaling smoke.
Those interested in using party drugs for health-promoting benefits must only use them under the direction of an experienced professional. As of today, this means getting the drugs as part of a research study and using them in a controlled environment. This allows researchers to take note of your effects and keep you safe in the event that you experience negative side effects. This also allows researchers to collect more data to determine what these drugs might be effective for. It has the potential to help a number of people when research is allowed to continue.
This is one of the #1 most comprehensive Psychology Books ever written, and it's free on Kindle (Get a copy, because it's like a Masters Degree wrapped-up into a single book). However, I recommend that you upgrade to the Print edition, because that copy comes with images.
