Your interest for the wonderful world of Psychedelics may not always be well accepted even today. If you regularly talk about your experiences with Psychedelic Truffles or Mushrooms, sooner or later you will face taboo. Your views are poorly understood and you may get uncomfortable response from time to time. The support sometimes seems totally lacking, regardless of how much you want to share your experiences and your valuable knowledge. So why is that? With the following in mind, you will be better able to explain yourself. You may even inspire someone to take a slightly different perspective on things.

Psychedelics as Cultural Heritage

Various Psychedelics such as Magic Mushrooms and Truffles, which are legal in the Netherlands, have been used by our ancestors for many thousands of years. Archaeological findings clearly suggest that this use dates back at least 8,000 years. Psychedelics have been central to shaping language, culture and philosophical thought and have been considered an essential part of communal life. Psychedelics were often used within ceremonial settings for spiritual purposes, as well as for healing physical and mental imbalances.

Psychedelics in the 50s and 60s

We are living in the 50s and Psychedelics are making their entrance into the mental health sector. During an experiment, the Psychedelic Substance LSD-25 is discovered by Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann. Subsequently, LSD proved to be extremely effective in the treatment of addiction, depression and various mental health problems. A revival within Psychiatry followed and until the late 60s, research on the effectiveness of various Psychedelics such as LSD, Mescaline and Psilocybin, a substance found in Magic Mushrooms and Magic Truffles, was abundant. The mental breakthroughs and insights that these substances could cause proved to be effective not only for clients, but also for those with a penchant for spiritual growth and development.

The ‘’War on Drugs’’

The massive emergence of psychedelic substances with healing qualities was therefore quickly picked up by various groups and it did not take long before they were also discovered within the well-known ”hippie movement.” This posed a very big threat to a recruitment campaign for the Vietnam War, an interference-conflict with dubious mediation from the American authorities. The world-famous statement ”Make Love Not War” made clear that the nation was ready for an alternative orientation. One based on love and peace. Consequently, in 1971, U.S. President R. Nixon pronounced a ”War on Drugs.” This outright ban affected not only the freedom of the people, but also progress and success achieved within the mental health sector. Ultimately, this led to the destruction of both knowledge, unimaginable delay and a complete denial of a cultural-historical history in which these substances were used ceremonially.

The Psychedelic Revolution and an End to Taboo

An extended period followed in which Psychedelics and other drugs were demonized by government agencies. Anti-Drug advertising campaigns and examples of incidents taken out of context were poured into the public for years on end. Drugs are bad and if you ever start them you will never be well again! Fortunately, today this short-sighted thinking is beginning to change ever more. In fact, since the early 2000s we have seen a huge resurgence in the field of research with Psychedelics. Thanks to brave scientists and journalists such as Rolland Griffith, Rick Doblin, Rick Strassman, Dennis McKenna, James Fadiman, Graham Hancock and many more, it appears strongly that the Psychedelic taboo may be finally broken. By now countless reports, articles, films and documentaries can be found and almost everyone has at least once heard of Microdosing. Psychedelics are back and with the right kind of education, a safe and responsible setting and attention to the essentials, they can be a valuable addition to our society.
