I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.
This week we are covering psychedelics and cannabis. The following articles discuss the possible therapeutic effects of MDMA (ecstasy) for PTSD and medical cannabis (higher in CBD) for treating opioid addiction.
Note: These articles (especially the cannabis one), while factual, have a definite point of view. While reading, don’t just consider what is written, but think about what isn’t being said as well.
Part 1: Read one of the two articles linked to below and post a summary of what the article states as well as one key specific aspect. Examples of what you can use for specifics include but are not limited to: something you found most interesting; something you relate to; something you disagree with.
Part 2 : Write a second post about the second article
Article 1: Looking to the Future of MDMA-Assisted Psychotherapy (Links to an external site.)
Article 2: Integrating medical cannabis into addiction treatment
