How psychedelics might break social media

Since the first specimens on earth, one predominant trait has a heavy presence today. The will to gain power and to be at the top.
These behavioral patterns continued throughout time and interspecies, and even today, demonstration of physical strength, financial power, or influence amuses us.

Such traits have led to an addiction to following today’s currency, which is influence, leading to addiction to social media and change in our neurochemistry.

Read more to understand the power of psychedelics on breaking habits such as constantly checking our phones, being attracted to productive capitalist ideology, and being a part of the system or the matrix.

Psychedelic Hallucinations may be generated in our retinofungal pathway!

Psychedelics are one of the most mysterious compounds. Still today, we have plenty of questions to answer. However, we got a step closer to understanding them with the recent study published by the University of Maastricht and the team of Zeus Tipado, Kim P.C. Kuypers, Bettina Sorger, and Johannes G. Ramaekers, who brought to light a new theory that psychedelic induced hallucinations might generate in the retinofugal pathway.

Join us to uncover this hypothesis and understand the mysterious world of psychedelics.

Psychedelics inspiring artists: A conversation with Sylocin

Without a doubt, one of the first things that comes to our minds🧠 when thinking about psych*delics is the distortion of our vision, followed by visual and auditory hallucinations. To most, these hallucinations are mere imagery or part of our hallucinations generated by our brain, but how would someone with an artistic vein perceive such changes in their sensory and neural sites?

To understand more how these compounds may influence and inspire someone’s art, we spoke to EDM music producer Sylocin🍄

Impact of new Halogenated Tryptophan Derivatives on Psychedelic Research

Groundbreaking research has demonstrated the potential for enzymes to selectively halogenate tryptophan at the 5-, 6-, or 7- positions, with particular emphasis on the 7- position, opening up opportunities to expand bio-based production to different hosts and halogenation positions within tryptophan, making it relevant for a cheaper large-scale industrial production of tryptophan pharmaceutical derivatives.

In the realm of psychedelics, this method could lead to the development of various tryptamine-based psych*delics and new halogenated beta-carbolines that can be used as alternatives to MAOIs in pharmahuasca blends. The possibilities are vast and exciting.

Types of psychoactive compounds

Society often misunderstands what drugs are. We all have a family member or a friend who says they are against drugs, but they consume alcohol, coffee, or smoke. 

Likewise, the community blurred the narrow line between what is psychedelic or simply psychoactive. We have constant arguments on whether MDMA, Cannabis, or Ketamine might be psychedelic or not. 
To some, the compounds become psychedelics based on the dosages. To others, the compounds fall into more scientific terminologies.

Join us to learn about the various classes of psychoactive compounds and how they affect our daily lives.

What is shadow work?

In the intricate landscape of human psychology, the concept of the shadow self, as elucidated by Carl Jung, represents the latent and often repressed aspects of our personality. Emerging research suggests that psychedelics, particularly empathogens-entactogens such as MDMA and 2C-B, may serve as catalysts for unveiling these hidden dimensions.

Through controlled clinical settings and guided therapy, individuals undergoing psychedelic experiences have reported profound insights into their shadow selves, leading to enhanced self-awareness and psychological integration.

Join us in examining personal anecdotes, confronting the intersection of untreated shadow manifestations and the transformative potential of psychedelic-assisted therapy.

Prehistoric Psilocybin

Ethnobotanicals are the most antique forms of psychedelic consumption, but for how long have they been around? We have proof of human and animal ingestion around 3,000 years ago, but could species before have also presented the existence of such species?

A newly published study from the University of Utah and the Natural History Museum of Utah suggests that the Psilocybe genus could be around about 65 million years ago!

Join us to uncover a hypothesis of why the genus started developing psilocybin and the first appearance of the fungi during prehistory.

Apollo Neuro Solution to Beat Stress, Achieve Better Sleep in World Sleep Day

Sleep is one of the most essential functions for the survival of every species. Unfortunately, the presence of social media, and the need for productivity lead to augmented stress, impacting our sleep schedules and quality of sleep.

To fight stress, we often pick up habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol, overusing coffee breaks as an escape, using substances such as Cannabis, or even throwing ourselves into the microdosing quotidian.

Despite the benefits of these compounds, plenty of these substances reduce the quality of sleep even further.

For this reason, Apollo Neuro released its own Wearable.

This wearable addresses the root of stress and anxiety, the nervous system.

Apollo Neuro works as touch therapy by delivering gentle, soothing vibrations, called Apollo Vibes, like music your body can feel reducing stress and helping you relax to fall asleep.
