Psilocybin FAQs

1. How much psilocybin is typically used to treat depression?

The dosage of psilocybin used in therapeutic settings varies and is carefully tailored to each individual. It is determined by factors such as body weight, personal sensitivity, and therapeutic goals.

Psilocybin dosages for depression treatment are personalised to optimise therapeutic outcomes. By working with trained professionals, individuals can receive the optimal dosage that facilitates healing and symptom relief while minimising potential adverse effects.


2. Can psilocybin cure depression?

Psilocybin is not considered a cure for depression; however, it has shown promising results in alleviating symptoms and promoting long-lasting positive changes.

Psilocybin-assisted therapy can facilitate a deep exploration of underlying emotional and psychological factors, leading to transformative experiences and enhanced well-being.

While psilocybin is not a guaranteed cure for depression, it has demonstrated significant potential in improving symptoms and facilitating healing. By engaging in a psilocybin-assisted therapy approach within a supportive environment, individuals have the opportunity to experience profound shifts and long-term positive outcomes.


3. Does psilocybin increase creativity?

Psilocybin has been reported to enhance creativity in some individuals. It can stimulate novel connections, broaden perspectives, and increase divergent thinking.

However, the effects on creativity can vary between individuals and depend on various factors such as dosage, set and setting, and personal disposition.

By expanding consciousness and facilitating unique thought patterns, psilocybin can unlock new insights, promote innovative thinking, and inspire artistic expression, allowing individuals to tap into their creative potential.


4. Do psychedelics reduce brain activity?

Contrary to reducing brain activity, psychedelics such as psilocybin have been found to increase brain activity, particularly in areas associated with consciousness, introspection, and the processing of emotions and perceptions.

Psilocybin promotes heightened connectivity between brain regions, leading to altered states of consciousness. This increased neural connectivity can promote introspection, emotional processing, and potentially lead to therapeutic and transformative outcomes.


5. What is the neurological mechanism of psilocybin?

Psilocybin interacts primarily with serotonin receptors in the brain, particularly the 5-HT2A receptors. This interaction modulates serotonin signalling and affects various brain regions involved in mood regulation, perception, and cognition.


6. What is the difference between serotonin and psilocin?

Serotonin is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter in the brain associated with mood regulation, sleep, appetite, and other functions. Psilocin is a compound derived from psilocybin mushrooms, and it is structurally similar to serotonin. Psilocin activates serotonin receptors, resulting in altered states of consciousness.

Psilocin’s similarity to serotonin enables it to bind to and activate serotonin receptors, leading to the psychedelic effects associated with psilocybin mushrooms.


7. How does psilocybin help with PTSD?

Psilocybin-assisted therapy has shown potential in helping individuals with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Psilocybin’s ability to enhance emotional processing and promote a sense of safety and connectedness can aid in the resolution of traumatic memories, reducing the emotional distress associated with PTSD.

Psilocybin, in conjunction with therapy, offers a unique therapeutic approach for individuals with PTSD. By facilitating a deep exploration of traumatic experiences, psilocybin can promote emotional healing, reduce symptoms of PTSD, and improve overall well-being and quality of life.


8. How does psilocybin affect behaviour?

Psilocybin can have profound effects on behaviour, including increased introspection, emotional openness, and shifts in perception. It can promote a heightened sense of connectedness, empathy, and personal insight. The therapeutic context of psilocybin administration plays a crucial role in shaping these behavioral effects.


9. Does psilocybin cause openness to experience?

Psilocybin has been associated with increased openness to experience, which is a personality trait characterised by curiosity, imagination, and an appreciation for novelty and aesthetics. Psilocybin can facilitate a temporary expansion of consciousness, leading to enhanced receptivity and openness.

Psilocybin can facilitate a broadening of perception, allowing individuals to embrace new perspectives, explore inner landscapes, and foster a sense of wonder and curiosity.
