“What type of Trip are you taking?”
The question appears on a phone screen, atop a soft-focus illustration of a dusky, Polynesian-seeming landscape. You could type in meditation or breathwork, or label it with a shorthand wink, like a mushroom emoji. The next question asks, “How far are you looking to go?” You choose “moderate”—you’re planning to ingest, say, 1.5 grams of magic mushrooms, which is still enough to make the bathroom floor tiles swirl like marbled paper. Select one of five prerecorded ambient soundtracks, and answer a few gentle questions about your state of mind. Soon you’ll be plumbing the depths of your consciousness, with an app as your guide.

I am talking to Ronan Levy from "Field Trip Health" based in Canada. The company is providing clinics for evidence based legal psychedelic therapies to treat depression. But what I like about "Field Trip Health" is their attitude towards a really dated idea to call some people “sick” or “crazy”. Field Trip Health says, we treat people, not patients. “We are all sick and healthy at the same time. It’s just that some people need more support.” says Ronan.We discuss the design places for a psychedelic treatment should have. Should they look more like a spa? Or a clinic? Or do we need new designs? And do the “ well" need psychedelics to get “better"? Or should we only focus on clinically depressed people? But then again, these concepts and terms don’t work any more. Join me and Ronan talking new psychedelic solutions and why mindfullness is not enough anymore.

Ronan Levy never used or experimented with drugs or alcohol while growing up. He even admits to being skeptical of the therapeutic applications for cannabis as he was getting into the industry in 2013. But Levy was open minded and felt that criminalizing consumption and production of cannabis (and other illicit substances that have low harm profiles) made little political or regulatory sense. He was excited to support the burgeoning cannabis industry and as the evidence for medical cannabis continued to build, Levy directly witnessed the profoundly positive impact his clinics were having on patients’ lives. His cautious optimism morphed into avid support for cannabis as medicine.

There’s no doubt about it—a classical psychedelic experience has the capacity to plant a seed in each of us that lets us behold, envision, and temporarily inhabit a world in which we are all connected in love, harmony, and mutual support. What we do with this vision after the experience ends, and how to integrate it into our lives and into the messy, imperfect, and unjust world around us is the tricky part.
