In this supplemental episode, we learn that psychedelic drugs have entered the C-suite. After decades as a societal pariah, why are psychedelics finding a home among America’s corporate leaders?
Focusing on plant medicine, Ehren Cruz gives some of the background, history, and science behind the many business uses leaders are finding. The Wall Street Journal is paying attention – so we’re taking a look at it, too.
Here's what Ehren and host Maureen Metcalf cover:
The goals leaders have for their psychedelic journeys;
The neurochemistry behind these plant medicines; and
The difference between therapeutic and ceremonial techniques in safe – and legal – psychedelic use.
