Alison Myrden Fights for Medical Psilocybin
Alison Myrden is a medical cannabis advocate and psilocybin trailblazer. Diagnosed with MS at the age of 28, she became one of the first people to receive a legal exemption to possess cannabis for medical use in the early 90’s. Alison suffers from a variety of other conditions including Trigeminal Neuralgia, which causes severe facial pain. She sees a specialist for neurological pain who has seen great improvement through the use of psilocybin.
While the positive effects of psilocybin for treating depression and anxiety are well-documented, the use of psilocybin for treating neurological pain, has not been studied to the same extent. Alison maintains that consuming psilocybin helps her neurological pain immensely, and supports more clinical trials to uncover other benefits.
