According to scientific research studies, magic mushrooms have many potential benefits on our health, from treating depression to helping with alcohol addiction. Psilocybin, the substance found in these mushrooms, is a powerful psychedelic ingredient.
Among the many conditions which can be improved with the help of these natural remedies we can include obsessive-compulsion disorder, cocaine addiction, smoking, end-of-life anxiety, and so on. There are special institutions such as the Usona Institute, which specialize in studying the effects of magic mushrooms.
Johns Hopkins University conducted a small pilot study which proved that therapy based on psilocybin can greatly improve abstaining from smoking after a period of 12 months. Matthew Johnson, PhD, stated that those who suffer from addiction have a rather narrow mental repertoire, stuck in certain specific routines. And what psilocybin manages to do is get them out of these routines, allowing patients to see the big picture. In other words, a mental plasticity is created, which enables these people to get out of their mental prison, to step outside and solve their issues. Psychedelic mushroom spores of the highest quality used for research purposes can be found at Sacred Mushroom Spores.
Another study was conducted at the UCLA David Greffen School of Medicine, referring to psilocybin treatment for people who have cancer. A double-trial blind study made at John Hopkins in 2011 demonstrated the anti-depressive effects of psilocybin.
