Tin Foil Hats: The Newest Thing In Psychiatry (CBD)

**BUMPED so you have an open thread.**

This can't possibly be true. A Helmet That Treats Mental Illness? Okay, she is a scientist, and that is certainly impressive, but it's not like she has an undergraduate degree in mechanical engineering, like Bill Nye! That, of course, confers upon the holder a magical understanding of all of science. But she does have a foul mouth, so maybe....

Like a good skeptical scientist, I started asking for evidence before I put any information about it on my website.

Had it been through phase three clinical trials? Yes.

Was it FDA approved? Yes.

Did they have long term clinical data? Yes.

Interesting. Probably not revolutionary, but people with psychiatric disorders that don't respond to conventional therapies tend to have bad outcomes, so if TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) doesn't injure them, and has positive clinical data, why not?
