      I don't know about others, but I think the placebo part could be left out or just passingly mentioned... We could mention the placebo affect when we go over dream myths, and we could mention it when we go over supplements as well.
      Bollocks.

      On the placebo effect thing, I'm just throwing it out there but--do you think it has to be called that? Placebo has such a negative connotation. It might help people better to call it autosuggestion. Because yeah, if someone knows "this is a placebo" it will be almost impossible for them to do it and get it to work. You can still explain the process, but calling it a placebo imo might make it harder for some people.

      placebo is not the same as autosuggestion

      Hmm...I understand. In that case, in what context can I put the part about the placebo? In the same place as with the list of supplements? Is that what you originally intended? That would make sense.

      Other than that...I'll get to editing what you've got already. For now, you can keep working on what you want to, but please be aware that until I have a place to put it, it may not be revised or edited quickly. This stuff is all very very good and useful, it just has no place to go yet. So for now just hold on to what you've done until I need it, and post it when the chapter comes up. Otherwise it will be a bit overwhelming for the editors to have orphaned pieces of writing in here.

      Also, if there are specific things you know you have the expertise to cover (like the Herb/Drug Repository), go ahead and post what you want to do in the Writer's sticky so I know what you want to do. Right now I really want to have a good idea of who is going to do what.

      Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

      THC is a psychoactive chemical produced by the cannabis plant as a defense mechanism. It is a popular recreational drug.


      Effects on Dreaming
      THC's hallucinogenic properties stimulate the centre of the brain that creates dreams. It is said to create very surrealistic dreams, however it has an extremely detrimental effect on dream recall.


      Take With


      Time to Take it
      WBTB, THC works very rapidly and it's effects don't last so taking it before bed will do very little.


      Sources of THC
      Marijuana


      Other Side Effects
      THC has been shown to reduce nervous tics.

      Cautions
      Marijuana is illegal in almost every country.
      THC in large doses can cause psychosis.
      Contrary to popular belief, THC is physiologically addictive; in fact it's nearly as addictive as caffeine.
      Marijuana has been linked to heart disease in long term use
      Marijuana has 5 times as much ammonia (a poisonous and cancer causing agent) as cigarettes.


      Interactions
      There are no known interactions with other drugs
