Abstract

Abstract: Field observations of underground, illicit, and private ceremonial substance use has been central to ongoing research in psychedelics-assisted therapy. This paper explores a novel use of MDA in a ceremonial virtual environment. Participant interviews and field notes are used to explore the reported therapeutic effects of this understudied entactogen. Users report therapeutic effects similar to MDMA, including both mystical experiences and introspection. Remote psychedelic-assisted therapy could have important public policy implications (Ferenstein, 2021).
