Trip Sitters & Psychedelic Guides in Colorado
We Provide Trip Sitting & Guiding Services in Every Major City
This list is not meant to be exhaustive. We provide our trip sitting and guiding services in all major cities in Colorado, including those which are not listed above. If we can physically get ourselves to you, we will sit for you. If you are curious whether we are able to service your area specifically, please contact us.
Substances We Sit With
The one caveat to us being able to provide trip sitting and guiding services is that we cannot provide your substance of choice for personal consumption—we are unable to help with sourcing. Please understand that psychedelics are still federally controlled substances and you assume all the risk associated with possessing and consuming these medicines.
We are here to facilitate intentional psychedelic experiences where you feel supported along the entire journey—from preparation to sacred ceremonial experience to integration. We facilitate your inner healing by holding a safe, comfortable, non-judgmental space.
**Psychedelic Passage does not provide psychoactive or controlled substances nor are we licensed therapists, counselors, or medical professionals. We are a harm reduction company offering trip sitting & integration coaching services.**
Psychedelic Reform in Colorado
We are in the midst of a psychedelic renaissance and the legal status of psychedelic substances is evolving rapidly. The decriminalization of psychedelics in certain states and cities has allowed us to trip sit for people like you while drastically reducing the risk of criminal repercussions (psychedelics are still federally illegal substances). The following section covers the progress of psychedelic reform in Colorado.
Decriminalization in Denver, CO
For a long time, people have scoured the internet seaching how to find psychedelics in Denver. On May 7th, 2019, Denver became the first U.S. city to decriminalize the use and possession of psilocybin mushrooms with the passing of Initiated Ordinance 301, which was approved with 50.64% of votes in favor of the ordinance, making the sharing of psilocybin possible.
The ordinance was added to the Denver Revised Municipal Code that “make(s) the personal use and personal possession of psilocybin mushrooms by persons twenty-one (21) years of age and older the city’s lowest law-enforcement priority, prohibit the city from spending resources to impose criminal penalties for the personal use and personal possession of psilocybin mushrooms by persons twenty-one (21) years of age and older, and establish the psilocybin mushroom policy review panel to assess and report on the effects of the ordinance.”
This change in local laws was driven by the efforts of activists like Kevin Matthews, who worked to bring attention to the potential therapeutic benefits of psilocybin mushrooms for various mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). While more research is needed to fully understand the mental health benefits of psilocybin mushrooms, early studies have shown promising results.
For example, a 2016 study published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that a single dose of psilocybin was able to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety in patients with life-threatening cancer. Another study published in 2018 in the Journal of Psychopharmacology found that psilocybin-assisted therapy was able to significantly reduce symptoms of treatment-resistant depression.
To further support the use of psilocybin mushrooms for therapeutic purposes, the city of Denver has established an official Psilocybin Mushroom Policy Review Panel, which includes a Natural Medicine Advisory Board. The panel is responsible for monitoring the impact of the decriminalization policy and making recommendations for future changes.
November 8th, 2022 marked the passing of Colorado Proposition 122– The Natural Medicine Health Act. With 53.6% of state voters opting in to decriminalize natural psychedelic medicine, Colorado now stands as one of the nation’s leading states in psychedelic reform.
The Future of Legal Psychedelics in Colorado
And though Initiated Ordinance 301 only applies to Denver, Colorado Springs may be the next municipality to decriminalize psilocybin. In October 2020, Colorado Springs City Council heard testimony from Decriminalize Nature Colorado Springs, an advocacy group highlighting the positive benefits of psychedelic reform.
The Colorado Springs City Council President, Richard Skorman, responded favorably, describing how his sister’s participation in a Columbia University psilocybin mushroom study helped her resolve trauma surrounding a life-threatening battle with cancer. Psilocybin activists are pursuing a statewide psilocybin initiative that would most likely appear on the Colorado ballot in 2022.
