Participants in the Psilocybin condition will receive .36 mg/kg of psilocybin.
0.36 mg/kg will be administered orally to participants
Active Comparator: Active Placebo
Participants in the Active Placebo condition will receive 2.6 mg/kg of dextromethorphan (DXM).
2.6 mg/kg of active placebo will be administered orally to participants
- Change in daily self-reported pain severity [ Time Frame: through study completion, up to 13 weeks ]Daily pain severity will be measured using a visual analog scale rated from 0 ('no pain at all') to 100 ('severe pain')
- Patient Global Impression of Change (PGIC) [ Time Frame: through study completion, up to 13 weeks ]The PGIC is a single-item Likert scale with seven response options from 1 ('very much improved') to 7 ('very much worse').
- Change in self-reported pain severity (Brief Pain Inventory [BPI]) [ Time Frame: through study completion, up to 13 weeks ]Pain severity scores will be calculated as a composite of the four pain severity items scored from 0 ('no pain') to 10 ('pain as bad as you can imagine') on the BPI
- Change in self-reported pain interference (Brief Pain Inventory [BPI]) [ Time Frame: through study completion, up to 13 weeks ]Pain interference scores will be calculated as the mean of the seven pain interference items scored from 0 ('does not interfere') to 10 ('completely interferes') on the BPI.
