Lesser Known Properties of Magic MushroomsOn : July 17, 2022
Do you know about the beneficial properties of magic mushrooms? There are good reasons why these mushrooms were used for medical purposes by Native Americans (and are still used today in some places). Following are just a few of the lesser talked about qualities of psilocybin that are actually known to scientists today:
- They can be of real help in the fight against depression. One of the main advantages of using magic mushrooms is that you will feel lighter, more energetic and overall happier. Studies show psilocybin therapy is even seen as a type of “breakthrough” depression therapy in many areas.
- You can use them to quit smoking. Ironically enough, smoking and other addictions have been treated very effectively using small doses of psilocybe cubensis mushrooms.
- Cancer-related psychiatric disorders can be alleviated. Extensive studies exist on this topic, and many cancer patients were able to overcome their anxiety following a treatment with magic mushrooms.
- Microdosing can help boost creativity and cognition. Although there aren’t many studies focusing specifically on microdosing, there is a lot of anecdotal evidence to support the practice of microdosing on magic mushrooms can have a strong positive effect on cognition.
Although it’s not very likely that magic mushrooms will be decriminalized too soon in most places, the growing body of research started through the use of reputable mushroom spores associated with the aforementioned benefits is making a very real impact. At least when it comes to medical use, we can expect some breakthroughs to appear during the next few years when it comes to the use of psilocybe mushrooms – or the substance, psilocybin itself – as part of the manufacturing process for effective medical drugs.
