Magic mushrooms are one of the most sought-after psychedelics, as their popularity continues to grow. With it, many new practices are also emerging — and magic mushroom tea is one of them.
Magic mushrooms are 180+ species of mushrooms which contain hallucinogenic compounds, psilocybin and psilocin. These compounds are being immensely studied for their incredible effect on the human body.
These psychedelics often activate serotonin receptors in the brain. Therefore, studies show they often help alleviate feelings of depression, anxiety, and overall stress.
Research for magic mushrooms to serve as an alternative treatment method continues. Psilocybin has shown progress in treatment-resistant depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, eating disorders, and more.
About Magic Mushrooms
Unfortunately, psilocybin-assisted therapy still remains illegal on the federal level, as it’s classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act.
Still, many U.S. states have begun the process of decriminalizing psilocybin medical treatments, with Oregon being the catalyst in 2020.
How Do You Take Magic Mushrooms?
If you have interest in trying magic mushrooms, simply eating them in their fresh or dry form is most common.
If you’ve never taken magic mushrooms before, starting with a small dose is the way to go. This is especially true if you’re unsure of the psilocybin content.
