Psilocybin-containing mushrooms, also known as psychedelic mushrooms or shrooms, are hallucinogens that can cause users to see, hear or feel things that are not there. They may also cause nausea, anxiety, muscle twitches and increased heart rate and blood pressure. The production, sale and possession of the drugs are illegal in Canada.Go here:

From Recreational Use to Spiritual Awakening: Magic Mushrooms in Calgary

Despite the prohibition on selling them, online retailers are selling pre-packaged micro doses of psilocybin mushrooms powder. These psilocybin capsules contain 50 to 300 milligrams of the drug, far below the amount required to produce the psychoactive effects that would occur when mushroom caps are eaten whole. Some athletes in high-stress sports are advocating for the micro dosing of psilocybin to help with stress and performance. Others use it for end-of-life anxiety. The drug has been used for centuries in Indigenous Peoples for its healing properties.

The University of Calgary is collaborating with a Canadian company to craft derivatives of the fungi’s active ingredient psilocybin for medical purposes. The research could help treat mental illness, including PTSD and depression. Joe Tucker, CEO of Boston-based MagicMed Industries, says he’s not hallucinating when he predicts that the fungi can inspire positive medicinal effects.

He believes that psilocybin can help alleviate the symptoms of mental illness by decreasing depression and anxiety and reducing tremors in people with Parkinson’s disease. He also expects that psilocybin will be effective in treating the pain of cancer patients and post-traumatic stress disorder.
