Yes, based on its effects. But it doesn’t work via the serotonin 5-HT2A receptor like other psychedelics.
Scientists Synthesize and Test the Magic Mushroom Compounds Baeocystin, Norbaeocystin, Norpsilocin, and Aeruginascin
This work is a giant step forward for psychedelic research.
Recent evidence suggests psychedelics may significantly improve addiction treatment outcomes.
Activation of neuronal 5-HT1A receptors causes hyperpolarization and inhibition of cellular signaling.
Even slightly modifying the chemical structure of the compounds in kratom can significantly alter their effects.
Technically the answer is no, but subjective experiences may vary.
The 5-HT2A receptor is central to the effects of many psychedelics, but it may not be the only receptor involved.
Identifying and understanding prodrugs is an essential component of psychedelic drug research.
Female hormones affect binding at the 5-HT2A receptor. Does this mean there is a uniquely female entourage effect with psychedelics?
Looking at the data side by side reveals there is much work to do, and why understanding the entourage effect is essential.
