Magic mushrooms were discovered thousands of years ago and used by various tribes around the world for rituals that required an altered state of mind. These special, hallucinogenic mushrooms were the psychotropic substance of choice for many subcultures until the 1960’s, when a process of criminalization started all over the world, with the active compound in magic mushrooms, psylocibin, was included into the lists of controlled substances. The laws that banned all kinds of activities related to mushrooms also put an end to the scientific research in the field, with the research results achieved up to that point being recorded and archived.
The interest toward the mushrooms revived after 2000, when many research institutions and prestigious universities started to implement research programs to study the effects of magic mushrooms as well as the possibilities to obtain the health benefits of the mushrooms without the psychedelic effects. The programs found that administering the mushrooms in very small doses called micro doses are beneficial in the treatment of depression and anxiety without inducing hallucinations – the discovery that has also contributed to a change in attitude towards the mushrooms at the level of the authorities and has led to the decriminalization of magic mushrooms in many states, regions and jurisdictions.
