As I mentioned in yesterday’s YouTube video, after four years of running this blog and pumping out weekly psychoactive roundups without any skipped weeks, I will be going on vacation for the next couple weeks and will not be coming out with any new blog posts or YouTube videos until after I return. That means that the weekly psychoactives roundup will be on hold for a couple weeks and I’m also going to stay away from social media during that time as well. I can’t wait to share my trip with y’all when I return, so stay tuned for that and until then—keep thinking wilder!
After thinking about it for a couple years, I’ve finally made the plunge and started the Think Wilder YouTube channel today. This channel will be used to explore psychoactive drugs, spirituality, technology, and personal development in a video format. I have essentially zero experience with producing videos but I’m looking forward to learning the ropes and hope that after some time and effort I’ll be producing the quality of content that I am striving to send out into the world. At any rate, I’ve commemorated the launch of my YouTube channel by launching two videos:
In this first YouTube video I cover the intentions behind my decision to start this channel and what I hope to accomplish with it.
And the second video is the first in a weekly video series where I highlight a few of the most important stories in psychoactive drug news. “Last Week in Psychoactives” as a video companion piece to supplement the “This Week in Psychoactives” weekly column on this blog.
Please check them out and share my channel with a friend if you think they might enjoy it. Thanks for your support!
As a fan of the fantastic podcast Road Work, I was quite tickled to hear the hosts stumble across some of my work on Psychedelic Times during this week’s show as they were looking to find help with researching potential negative interactions between pharmaceutical drugs.
While I’m almost certainly not the right person to tell them about whether their Lamictal would interact poorly with their NAD+, because as they discovered, I tend to focus more on psychedelics, I did find a few drug interaction checkers that might help people trying to find information on potential negative interactions between multiple pharmaceutical drugs:
I spent a few minutes looking at those two particular drugs, and while Lamictal is available as an option, it didn’t look like NAD+ was on any of these checkers. But these interaction checkers can be used with other drugs, if that’s what you’re looking for. And I’d recommend asking your doctor about any potentially negative drug interactions as well.
At any rate, I was thrilled to find out that a high-caliber podcast like Road Work discussed my work on their show. If you haven’t checked them out before, I highly encourage you to give them a listen. Thanks John and Dan!
This week’s TWIP column will be a bit delayed, as I’m going to be taking a short break from blogging for a few days. In fact, I am hitting the road tomorrow and heading to northern Florida for this year’s Hulaween music festival. This will be my third consecutive year attending the festival, and I’m super stoked to kick back, relax, and enjoy some awesome music and mindbending light shows for a few days.
If you happen to be also going to Hulaween, contact me and we can meet up!
I’ll be back early next week and should have the 10.26.18 TWIP out by Halloween. Thanks for your patience. 👻🎃👽
Hello readers! I will out of town this week with extremely limited access to the Internet, so this week's "This Week in Psychedelics" column will be published sometime next week—most likely on Tuesday or Wednesday. (However, the "Weekend Thoughts" article will be published on Saturday as per usual.) Thank you for your patience!
