Also known as hallucinogenic mushrooms, magic shrooms include many species that contain psychedelic substances, including psilocybin, psilocin and, to a lesser extent, baeocystin. These are known to have been among the first substances consumed by humans as medicines; for example, archaeological remains in India show that, as early as 1600 BC., humans consumed Fly Agaric, which is a species that has been associated with the drug of immortality of the Indo-Iranian tribes and even with the origins of Christianity.
In America, the evidence shows that they were consumed before the arrival of the Spaniards, especially Psilocybe mushrooms, with which the term “magic mushrooms” is mainly associated.
It is estimated that there are more than 200 species of hallucinogenic mushrooms, of which 53 are found in Mexico, 22 in the United States and Canada, 19 in Australia and the surrounding islands, 16 in Europe, 15 in Asia and 4 in Africa.
You can find them in forests and meadows, where the climate is mild and warm all year round, in soils rich in humus and plant debris. You can find mushroom spores for sale online at hiddenforestsporestore.com/.
