Jaden Smith to Speak at World’s Largest Psychedelic Science Conference

Multi-hyphenate entertainer, entrepreneur, advocate, and musician to speak about psychedelic medicine, healing, and mental health

DENVER, June 14, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Psychedelic Science 2023, the breakthrough psychedelic conference hosted by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) and organized by Momentum Events, announced today that entertainer and advocate Jaden Smith will participate in a Q&A at this year’s conference, taking place June 19-23, 2023 in Denver, Colorado.

Natalie Lyla Ginsberg, the Global Impact Officer for MAPS, will conduct a Q&A with Jaden on the Bellco Theater stage on Friday, June 23rd at 12:15 MT.

Jaden has been an outspoken voice for his generation on mental health and how psilocybin, the psychoactive compound in psychedelic mushrooms, has helped treat his depression. He stresses the importance of supported psychedelic sessions that have helped him improve his overall mental health and reignited his creativity. He credits these experiences in the release of his third studio album “CTV3: Cool Tape Vol. 3” as well as the psychedelically-inspired “Trippy Summer” collection from his label MSFTSrep, the fashion brand he started with his friends and sister.

“Jaden has been one of the most thoughtful and passionate public figures to speak out about psychedelics in recent years,” Ms. Ginsberg said. “His courage discussing his personal experiences with depression, coupled with his holistic knowledge about psychedelics, has made an outsize impact expanding the mainstream’s familiarity with psychedelics. Jaden’s bold and educational psychedelic fashion line has also paved the way for the increasing trend of psychedelic fashion, which serves an underestimated and powerful role in destigmatizing psychedelics.”

“I’ve been very open about how psychedelic medicine has been incredibly healing for me. It has helped me understand myself better and has helped me bring more of my creative self into the world,” said Mr. Smith. “Plant medicine has allowed me to put my health and well-being first, and everyone deserves access to this opportunity for expanded consciousness and healing.”
