Dr. Rick Strassman, Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine

Dr. Rick Strassman, Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine, is this week’s guest on The Green Rush!

After twenty years of intermission, Dr. Strassman was the first person in the United States to undertake human research with psychedelic, hallucinogenic, or entheogenic substances with his research in the 1990s. Thanks to the research by Dr. Strassman, organizations like the Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) have moved the ball forward with the FDA to the point that MDMA – or ecstasy – has been granted Phase III breakthrough status for the treatment of PTSD and universities such as NYU, the Imperial College in London and Johns Hopkins are all conducting cutting edge research.

For this episode, Lewis dives deep with Dr. Strassman about the medical value of psychedelics, how he reflects on his research 20 years after the fact what he foresees as the future of psychedelic medicine. Anyone following the cannabis industry should be closely following the psychedelics space as the paths to legalization for both are nearly parallel. 

Don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!

Ronan Levy, Founder of Field Trip Ventures

Ronan Levy, Founder of Field Trip Ventures sits down with The Green Rush this week as the team looks to cover something a little different: psychedelics.

Field Trip Ventures is a first-of-its-kind venture that is blending operational execution with strategic investing across all aspects of the psychedelics supply chain.  From basic research on botanical psychedelics like psilocybin, to the operation of world-class clinics focused on psychedelic-assisted therapies (for example, using MDMA to treat PTSD), Ronan and his team are on the front lines of the “next cannabis.”

The Green Rush will chat with Ronan about his cannabis roots including his time as an executive with Aurora Cannabis, the re-emergence of psychedelic-based therapies, how psychedelics could follow the same “playbook” as cannabis as it looks to move towards legalization and busting common myths and misinformation around its addictiveness and dangers.

Don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
