Are you curious about the latest developments in the burgeoning world of psychedelic science? If so, you won’t want to miss the upcoming Psychedelic Science conference in Denver, Colorado! This five-day event brings together some of the biggest names in drug research, advocacy, venture capital, and more, and promises to be an incredible opportunity to learn and network. In this blog post, we’ll give you a summary of the conference, explain why it’s coming to Colorado, and provide details on how to attend.
The Psychedelic Science conference is hosted by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, one of the country’s foremost research organizations on the topic. This year marks the first time the event has opened its doors to the general public, and organizers expect about 10,000 attendees. The event will feature dozens of speakers, including Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and prominent podcaster Tim Ferriss.
The conference is being held in Denver due to Colorado’s recent decision to legalize medicinal psychedelics, including psilocybin and psilocin, two compounds found in “magic mushrooms.” This makes Colorado the second state, behind Oregon, to erect a legal psychedelics industry, and organizers are excited to be bringing the event to the Centennial State.
Psychedelic Science covers a variety of topics aimed at educating a wide range of attendees, from professional practitioners to those looking to get into the nascent industry. A preliminary schedule includes lectures on ethnobotany, drug reform, neuroscience and pharmacology, religious and sacramental uses of psychedelic substances, indigenous perspectives, equity in access to psychedelic treatment, addiction and substance abuse, and more. Workshops, which often carry additional fees, cover topics from how to provide guidance during psilocybin- and MDMA-assisted therapy sessions to leveraging integration and harm reduction in clinical settings to best practices when working with veterans.
Passes to Psychedelic Science cost $755 for the general public, $995 for health, medical and scientific practitioners, and $1,695 for business founders, executives and entrepreneurs. All passes include access to the main conference programming June 21-23, access to an exhibit hall and an immersive show called “Deep Space,” and networking opportunities at a cocktail reception.
