Robert J. Barnhart is the producer and creator of a new documentary called A New Understanding: The Science of Psilocybin, which explores helping terminally ill cancer patients who are suffering from end-of-life anxiety with psilocybin. Psilocybin is a psychedelic compound found in mushrooms around the world, and is currently classified as a schedule 1 drug – making unavailable and illegal for anyone to use. Roberts film tells not only the science and history behind the drug, but the story of the patients who go through this treatment, the process, and the benefits they received from it.

Robert also sits on the board of the Heffter Institute and MAPS, both of which are working incredibly hard at legalizing a variety of psychedelic drugs for medical use.

CEO & Founder at Psychedelic Society and I created this community in 2013 shortly after finishing high school and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since :) There are many things happening on the planet that don't resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It's been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned :)
