Today’s podcast features an interview with Glenn Irving who is a volunteer with the project known as #ThankYouPlantMedicine. As the project’s title tells you, this is a world-wide effort to spread the word about ways in which the plants have come to our aid. The first mission of this project is to encourage 100,000 people to tell their psychedelic plant stories in public. You may be amused at the social media platform where Lorenzo plans to post his psychedelic story on February 20th.

If the ears of all the people in the nation who had ingested illicit substances in the past six months were to turn bright green for one whole week, the nation would be amazed, confused, astounded, and quickly taught something very important as they identified friends, relatives, neighbors, doctors, lawyers, accountants, priests, nuns, ministers, rabbis, soldiers, policemen, firemen, military personnel, businessmen, teachers, students, politicians, respected policy makers, administrators, supervisors, and workers from a variety of private and government institutions everywhere.
Elaborating on your cautionary suggestion people “don’t (always) have to go real public” on the internet with certain personal info or knowledge “because you do (already) know what you know.”: I think we sometimes feel mistakenly compelled to share with or teach others the very things we need to know, dwell upon, or learn from ourselves. At least that’s part of it. So before putting anything online, we should ask ourselves, “Is this something part of me wants another part of me to know?…Or is it really something that can be of mutual benefit to others and myself (without harming me in the process) by sharing it publically?”
That advice in itself is an example of something I definitely need to think more about myself. But I think, in this case, it’s appropriate to share it. Fortunately we all have a few weeks at this time to consider carefully how and what we are going to come out with on February 20th.
[COMMENT by Lorenzo: Well put! I completely agree.]
Cannabis will do it. “The problem is that people don’t take enough.”
I survived an encounter with Durga. After overdosing on thc.
Please don’t be people who take too little.
I’ve got an incredible denial towards hard psychedelics. My eho isn’t hard to break. I get open eye visuals by just drinking alcohol. Now smoking a terrible overdose of pot isn’t my favourite time spending idea.
But it works. Just take your time to let the tolerance drop and then!! Zang
Hey Psychedelic Salon!
My name is Tom, I recently launched a website called psilopedia.ca that is a non-profit informational centre for psilocybin mushrooms. I am seeking to disseminate as much information as possible regarding psilocybin for both harm-reduction purposes, and to inform the public about psilocybins safety and efficacy in treating serious psychological illnesses.
I would love to collaborate with you for a podcast, there are a plethora of things we can potentially cover, like research in this field (at highly accredited institutions) that has yielded impressive results, the FDA in the U.S. giving psilocybin a “breakthrough therapy” designation for Major Depressive Disorder, the Vancouver city council blocking a motion to stop Dana Larsen’s Mushroom Dispensary, benefits to the “healthy” or “recreational” user, psilocybins effects, dosage, and duration, psilocybins metabolic process, psilocybe mushroom identification, and the growing number of ‘officially’ classified strains.
The fact that this subject has been gaining popularity as of late could be very lucrative from a content creators perspective, and I believe this topic will resonate with the demographic of your viewers.
Please get back to me if you are interested!
