The use of magic mushrooms is gaining traction in other countries for a variety of reasons.
- Religious significance
In many countries, magic mushrooms have a long-standing relationship with religion and spiritual practices. For instance, in Mexico, there’s an ancient Aztec religion known as ‘Veladas’ in which people take part in ceremonies involving the use of psychedelic mushrooms. This spiritual use of the psychedelic mushroom is a legal practice in certain countries.
- Health benefits
There is growing scientific evidence suggesting that psilocybin, the main psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms, can be beneficial for treating various mental health concerns such as depression, PTSD, and anxiety. Because of this, some countries have begun to legalize the use of psychedelic mushrooms for individuals looking for potential therapeutic uses. Research continues with the use of scientific specialty ordered psilocybe spores.
- Personal freedom
Many countries are recognizing that taking part in psychedelics such as psilocybin-containing magic mushrooms is an individual’s choice and ultimately an expression of their personal freedom. Many countries are promoting the safe use of psychedelics and permitting the sale of psilocybin-containing products on the basis of personal freedom and the potential health benefits associated with its potential therapeutic uses.
Magic mushrooms can be extremely powerful and should be used with caution. It is important to recognize the potential risks associated with the use of psychedelics, including psychotic episodes that can occur during or after the use of a hallucinogen. All in all, the risks and benefits of psychedelics must be carefully considered before allowing their use.
