Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a life altering and often debilitating disorder that can have a profound effect on someone’s life. While there is currently no cure, research into different treatments for PTSD is ongoing. Conditions co-morbid with PTSD can cause difficulty in research. Several illegal drugs like psilocybin, cannabis, lysergic acid diethylamide, and mescaline have shown promise, but need further research as treatments for PTSD symptoms.
