Magic mushrooms are known to bring hallucinations, even though these mushrooms still have health benefits in the form of DOSE THERAPY. Magic mushrooms are scientifically referred to as psilocybin mushrooms are polyphyletic (developing organisms), an informal group of mushrooms that contain psilocybin, a natural psychedelic drug, which turns into psilocin (a psychedelic substance). Psychedelics themselves are known as hallucinogens or psychoactive substances that can produce changes in perception, mood, and cognitive processes, which affect all senses such as changing a person’s way of thinking, time, and emotions.
Psychedelics are not intended for everyone and are not for everyday use. Apart from the number of risks such as addiction and drug abuse associated with hallucinogens, recent research and investigations are underway to find out about the use of psychedelic substances in treating diseases such as addiction, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Psilocybin, the active ingredient found in magic mushrooms, is powerful psychedelic and 100 times more potent than LSD. However, several studies have shown that psilocybin has several health benefits that are considered quite effective. Studies on the health benefits of magic mushrooms mainly focus on the use of psilocybin mushrooms to treat a wide variety of psychiatric and behavioral disorders such as depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, nicotine quitting, alcoholism, other drug addictions, cluster headaches.
According to a 2019 study, psilocybin has been shown to positively impact individuals suffering from depression. Reports also suggest that psilocybin therapy has been approved for the treatment of depression, and the study is in phase III trials as early as 2021. Several studies have shown that magic mushrooms are beneficial for managing PTSD, suggesting that some Iraqi soldiers returning from the war used magic mushrooms to help with severe PTSD. According to some studies, if you are struggling with various forms of addiction, the psilocybin mushroom may be able to help. While this may sound exaggerated, it is scientifically accurate. It has been found that magic mushrooms can enhance the smoking cessation process. More research is being done on its effectiveness on alcohol and cocaine dependence as well.
