What You Need to Know About Magic Mushrooms

Magic mushrooms are psychedelic because they contain the psychedelic compounds psilocybin and psilocin. They are also a completely natural psychedelic. Psilocybin is a prodrug, meaning it is only psychoactive when consumed and processed in the body. When you take mushrooms containing psilocybin, the body will convert the psilocybin into psilocin, which is psychoactive. Both psilocybin and psilocin belong to a group of chemicals known as tryptamines. This grouping also includes compounds like DMT and 5-MeO-DMT.

Magic mushroom use is thousands of years old, but the idea largely entered public awareness with the publication of an article about magic mushrooms in Life magazine in 1957. Written by the then vice-president of J.P. Morgan R. Gordon Wasson, this article detailed a magic mushroom ceremony in Oaxaca, Mexico that Wasson took part in. In the decade that followed, more Westerners began experimenting with psilocybin mushrooms.

Today, promising new research trials have found that psilocybin can effectively treat a number of intransigent psychiatric conditions. It’s why psychedelics for depression and other mental health issues are becoming more popular these days.
