Storyline

A stylish, in depth look at the renaissance in psychedelic drug research in light of current scientific, medical and cultural knowledge. The film explores these socially taboo substances as adjuncts to psychotherapy, as crucial but neglected medicines, and as technologies of consciousness. From Neurons to Nirvana: The Great Medicines features interviews with some of the world's foremost researchers, writers, and pioneers in the growing field of psychedelic psychotherapy. These radical healers and dissenters are using everything from ancient concoctions to newly created designer molecules to the once demonized psychedelic drugs of the 1960s. They argue convincingly for the legal right to incorporate these substances into therapeutic practice. Written by Anonymous

Beautiful and Informative
29 June 2020 | by anthonydapiiiSee all my reviews

This documentary was filled with a high level of facts, great minds that are experts on the topics of psychedelics, psychotherapy, and neuroscience, and excellent visuals.

I thoroughly enjoyed this open-minded conversation about psychedelics. I thoroughly enjoyed the visuals and the retro feel with going screen to screen - as it kept me engaged.

I also enjoyed the one snippet of Rick Rubin talking about influential individuals who have used psychedelics before - which most certainly influenced there art and work.
