Ketamine & Cannabis Assisted Psychotherapy (K/CAP) FAQs

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) involves the use of ketamine, a dissociative anesthetic, in combination with psychotherapy to treat various mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, and PTSD. The therapy session typically begins with the administration of a controlled dose of ketamine followed by psychotherapy to explore thoughts and emotions brought about by the experience.

KAP has shown promising results in rapidly alleviating symptoms of treatment-resistant depression and other mental health disorders. It may provide quick relief compared to traditional antidepressants and can lead to profound insights during therapy sessions.

Cannabis Assisted Psychotherapy (CAP) involves using cannabis, typically in the form of medical marijuana, in conjunction with psychotherapy to address various mental health concerns. Unlike KAP, which uses ketamine, CAP utilizes the medicinal properties of cannabis to facilitate therapeutic breakthroughs.

These therapies are not suitable for everyone. Individuals with a history of psychosis, substance use disorders, or certain medical conditions may not be eligible for these treatments. It’s important to undergo a thorough evaluation by a qualified healthcare professional to determine suitability.

Both KAP and CAP can have potential side effects and risks, including dissociation, increased heart rate, temporary increase in blood pressure (in the case of ketamine), and impaired cognitive function (in the case of cannabis). These should only be administered under the supervision of trained professionals.

It’s crucial to seek out licensed and experienced healthcare providers who specialize in Ketamine or Cannabis Assisted Psychotherapy. They should have the necessary training and expertise to ensure safe and effective treatment.

The legal status of these therapies varies by location. In some regions, ketamine and cannabis may be legally used for therapeutic purposes, while in others, their use may be restricted or prohibited. It’s important to understand the local regulations before seeking out these treatments.

It’s essential to inform healthcare providers about all current treatments and medications being used to ensure there are no potential interactions or contraindications. Integrated care and collaboration between providers are crucial for the safety and effectiveness of these therapies.
