Episode 49.5: The DOSED Interview

• March 30th, 2020

In this bonus episode of Psychotropic, we listen to Adrianne, Tyler, and Nick as they talk about their new film DOSED.

Directed by Tyler Chandler, the film follows Adrianne, a suicidal woman who has struggled with depression, anxiety, and opioid addiction. After years of prescription medications failing her, Adrianne turns to the world of underground healers where plant medicines are redefining our understanding of mental health and addiction.

Through Adrianne’s very personal journey on film, DOSED shows firsthand how psychedelic drugs like magic mushrooms and iboga can improve the lives of millions and potentially bring an end to the opioid crisis. 

Through our interview, we hear about how Adrianne’s addiction to opiates began, how her addiction evolved, as well as her time as the subject of DOSED. We also hear from Tyler and Nick about what it was like directing, shooting, and producing DOSED.

Be sure to check out DOSED by going to www.dosedmovie.com to rent or buy. If you purchase the film before April 2nd, ten percent of the proceeds will go towards the Coronavirus Disaster Relief Fund as well as be matched by Facebook.

Episode 45: Trippy the Hippy

• January 27th, 2020

Most of us have had a first-time psychedelic experience. And we all came into it with an understanding that those handful of hours might get weird, and that we might see things that we’re not used to seeing.

How weird could it get though? It’s just LSD, right? Worst case scenario; it turns into a bad trip and you just have to wait it out.

What if reality shifts in ways that forever change who we are? What if that temporary shift in reality turns out to not be so temporary?

Welcome Trippy the Hippy into this episode of Psychotropic.
