New in Project CBD: Psilocybin mushrooms and phantom limb pain

My latest piece diving into the wilds of psychedelic science for Project CBD turns up a rather unexpected use for magic mushrooms: treating chronic phantom limb pain in amputees. But as my article indicates right up top, the mechanism through which psilocybin helps reduce or eliminate phantom limb pain is likely nothing new. 

This is the first of a two-part series on psychedelics and chronic pain; the second article should be coming in another couple weeks.
